Former FBI Director James Comey has been criticised in a Department of Justice report for the leak of memos on his interactions with President Trump, APA reports citing BBC.

An internal watchdog said Mr Comey had failed to "live up" to his duty to safeguard sensitive information.

The watchdog said Mr Comey broke FBI rules by giving a memo to a friend to share its contents with a reporter.

But the inspector general said he was not recommending that Mr Comey be prosecuted for the breach.
