Wouldn’t doubt it in the slightest.
Via NY Post:
Was then-FBI chief Jim Comey spying on his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch? He apparently had a “highly placed informant” in her office reporting on her doings as of May 2016, which is pretty darn close to “spying” in most books.
We know: Comey famously considers it an “investigation,” not “spying,” when it’s official FBI business — but it’s hard to see how secretly monitoring the AG’s office could be official work for the Bureau.
And secretly monitoring Lynch is exactly what the new book from Pulitzer-winning reporter James B. Stewart indicates Comey was doing.
It was the peak of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, and Comey (as he’s said) was “troubled” by Lynch’s attitude — such as her September 2015 directive that the FBI not call its criminal investigation of Clinton “an investigation” (let alone “criminal”), but simply “a matter,” which was exactly what the Clinton campaign wanted.
