Actually it isnt protocol for the FBI to update, but according to Comey he pledged he would though he set himself up when he held his press conference in July. What I am more concerned about is how much Chaffetz knew ahead of time and for how long. Seemed odd that he changed his endorsement (voting for someone IS endorsing them) hours before he leaked the letter. A letter that had not been receive by other members of the committee yet. If that is true and Comey did in fact give Republicans the heads before everyone else, then he did violate the Hatch Act.
