Gregg Jarrett: Comey Could Face Criminal Referral For Defrauding FISA Court In Upcoming I.G. Report

|

FOX News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett predicts FBI Director James Comey will face a "harsh judgment" in the forthcoming Department of Justice I.G. report. Jarrett also said Comey could be facing a criminal referral, something he has received before but the DOJ declined to prosecute. Jarrett said perhaps the DOJ decided not to prosecute because they were waiting for "better evidence" to come out in the I.G. report on Comey.

GREGG JARRETT, FOX NEWS: Principally, [James Comey] signed off on the first three FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. And he presented to the court what he claimed was verified information when he knew it wasn't. He withheld exculpatory information. He knew that it was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the dossier, and yet he didn't tell the court that. In my book, I talk about six different misrepresentations by James Comey made to the FISA court. Now, lying to the FISA court is also six different felonies including defrauding the court. So I think it's going to be a harsh judgment on the sanctimonious, self-righteous and glorious James Comey who has never passed a mirror without falling head over heels in love.



DAVID ASMAN, FOX BUSINESS: Could we see in this I.G.report a criminal referral?

JARRETT: Oh, absolutely. You've already had one criminal referral in the second I.G. report against James Comey for stealing government documents and leaking them to the media, including one classified document.

ASMAN: We know that happened because he admitted it.

JARRETT: Yes, of course, the Department of Justice took a pass on presenting it to a grand jury and indicting him. Now, maybe that suggests they feel they have better evidence coming out in this forthcoming report against Comey.
