Judicial Watch: Court Orders DOJ to Preserve Comey Personal Email
 

Contact: Jill Farrell, Judicial Watch, 202-646-5188

 

WASHINGTON, Aug. 7, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court ordered the Department of Justice to preserve federal records located in the personal email accounts of fired FBI Director James Comey. Judicial Watch and Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) had filed a motion asking the court to issue an order for preservation that was opposed by the Justice Department and FBI.

In the motion, Judicial Watch argued that "there is reason to be concerned that the responsive records could be lost or destroyed." Judicial Watch pointed out that in June 2018, the DOJ's Inspector General stated, "We identified numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account (a Gmail account) to conduct FBI business." The Justice Department, in response to Judicial Watch's concerns, sent Mr. Comey a letter asking him to preserve records but refused to make the letter available and opposed a preservation order.
