(Washington, DC) – A report from Judicial Watch says the FBI has now agreed to go back and review 16,750 pages of records regarding disgraced former FBI Director James Comey after the cache of Comey records were discovered as a result of disclosures by the Justice Department in a separate litigation.
The FBI will review the pages in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from Judicial Watch, that requested archived records from former FBI Director James Comey after he was dismissed.
The report states Judicial Watch has come to an agreement with the Federal Bureau of Investigation after they filed the FOIA lawsuit to obtain James Comey’s records. see (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00262)).

Judicial Watch discovered the cache of Comey records as a result of disclosures by the Justice Department in separate Judicial Watch litigation (here and here) to obtain the controversial “Comey memos” that allegedly memorialize conversations Comey had with President Trump.
There is significant public interest in Comey’s conduct and the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email and Russia collusion investigations and targeting of President (and candidate) Trump.
“The FBI has a terrible record of playing shell games with records – whether it be texts or memos by its disgraced former director James Comey,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Our lawsuit, we hope, will force the FBI to expedite the review and the release of the 16,750 pages of Comey documents.
