Comey set a “dangerous example” for FBI employees in an attempt to “achieve a personally desired outcome,” the report states.

The inspector general’s office referred the findings of its report to the Justice Department for potential prosecution earlier this summer, though the Justice Department declined to bring a case, the report says.

CNN has previously reported that the Justice Department prosecutors didn’t believe there was evidence to show Comey knew and intended to violate laws on dealing with classified information, according to a person familiar with the referral.
