Obama AG Eric Holder: FBI’s Comey ‘Broke’ Fundamental Principles, Hurt ‘Public Trust’ in FBI

“”Eric Holder, who served as Deputy Attorney General under President Clinton and Attorney General under President Obama, said that the Director’s decision [on conclusion of Clinton investigation] “was incorrect. It violated long-standing Justice Department policies and traditions. And it ran counter to guidance that I put in place four years ago laying out the proper way to conduct investigations during an election season.”

“Holder concluded that the Director [Comey] ‘broke with these fundamental principles’ and ‘negatively affected public trust in both the Justice Department and the FBI.'”

In addition, former DOJ officials Laurence Silberman, Jamie Gorelick, and Larry Thompson all concluded that FBI Director Comey “violated his obligation to ‘preserve, protect, and defend’ the traditions of the Department and the FBI,” wrote Rosenstein in the memo.”
