Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the Senate Judiciary chairman, asked the Justice Department if the FBI had gotten any material from fired FBI Director James Comey's personal devices, after a report Thursday that Comey at times used his private email for work. 

"The Justice Department should apply at least as much scrutiny to its own former director as it applied to the former secretary of state," Grassley wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, referring to Hillary Clinton, Politico reported.

"It is disturbing that FBI employees tasked with investigating Secretary Clinton, including the former director, appear to have engaged in strikingly similar conduct," wrote Grassley, Politico reported. "Although it does not appear as egregious and prolonged, they also used non-government systems for official work."

Comey and other bureau officials used private email accounts for government business while investigating Hillary Clinton for her use of personal servers, the Justice Department's inspector general concluded in a report released Thursday.
