Law enforcement officials previously told Reuters the information was leaked to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, an adviser to the Trump campaign who subsequently discussed the contents on Fox News.
Horowitzs office also has sought to determine whether such leaks influenced Comeys decision 11 days before the election to announce the reopening of the Clinton email investigation. Law enforcement sources with knowledge of the matter, speaking on condition of anonymity, said at the time a fear of leaks from within his own agency helped prompt Comey to make that public disclosure.
Report to be published in May apparently.

A federal judge dealt a blow to Michael Cohen, the presidents embattled personal lawyer, in a closely watched court decision on Monday afternoon.
Judge Kimba Wood of federal District Court in Manhattan denied an attempt by Cohen and President Trump to stop prosecutors from reviewing the materials that the FBI seized from his office, home and hotel room last week, according to multiple reports.
Cohen's legal team had asked for a temporary restraining order so that they could review the files and then turn over to prosecutors those that were "responsive, non-privileged items" a request the government called unprecedented.
But in a victory for Cohen, Wood did order the government to create a database of what was taken from Cohen and share it with his legal team, according to The Associated Press.

A home improvement contractor married to one of Donald and Melania Trumps former household staffers is now working as an official at the Environmental Protection Agency, the latest example of someone with a personal connection to the Trump family finding work in the administration.

Steve comes to us from private industry, where he fashioned his career around customer service and organizational efficiencies, EPA Region 2 Administrator Pete Lopez wrote in the memo.

According to sources, Trump wants the Post Office to increase Amazons shipping costs. When Trump previously discussed the idea inside the White Hose, Gary Cohn had explained that Amazon is a benefit to the Postal Service, which has seen mail volume plummet in the age of e-mail. Trump doesnt have Gary Cohn breathing down his neck saying you cant do the Post Office shit, a Republican close to the White House said. He really wants the Post Office deal renegotiated. He thinks Amazons getting a huge fucking deal on shipping.
Even Trumps allies acknowledge that much of whats fueling Trumps rage toward Amazon is that Amazon C.E.O. Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post, sources said. Trump doesnt like The New York Times, but he reveres it because its his hometown paper. The Washington Post, he has zero respect for, the Republican close to the White House said. While the Post says that Bezos has no involvement in newsroom decisions, Trump has told advisers he believes Bezos uses the paper as a political weapon. One former White House official said Trump looks at the Post the same way he looks at the National Enquirer. When Bezos says he has no involvement, Trump doesnt believe him. His experience is with the David Peckers of the world. Whether its right or wrong, he knows it can be done.
