Responding to questions from Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Monday, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed that he is investigating former FBI Director James Comey’s leak of FBI memos, following his dismissal last year.

“Former Director Comey said on television that the inspector general interviewed him about the handling of his memos of conversations with President Trump. Some of those memos contain classified information,” Grassley said, pointing out that Comey described a possible investigation as “frivolous.”

The senator asked if the inspector general is planning on writing a report, after completing an investigation.

Horowitz confirmed he is, saying the FBI referred the matter to him.

“We will issue a report when the matter is complete,” he said.
