Report on FBI’s Clinton email probe coming next week: Inspector General

Citing unnamed sources, ABC News said the inspector general report, which could be released as soon as this week, said Mr. Comey's behavior was "insubordinate".

Horowitz also told lawmakers he would be willing to testify before the committee on June 18.

The IG report is expected to excoriate then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, then-FBI Director James Comey and other officials over their handling of the inquiry into the private email server that Clinton used when she was secretary of state. It will nearly certainly be used by President Trump to attack current and former law enforcement leaders at whom he has repeatedly taken aim in recent days and months.

The long-anticipated IG report also has taken on political importance for President Trump, who, together with GOP supporters in Congress, have spent months sandblasting the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

President Trump says he may pardon late boxing champion Muhammad Ali
Earlier this week, Trump commuted the life sentence of a woman whose cause was championed by Kim Kardashian West. His decision resulted in a draft-evasion conviction, and he was stripped of his heavyweight boxing crown.


The announcement comes after Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley again rescheduled a hearing, originally set for June 5, to go over the long awaited OIG investigation findings. People familiar with the matter told the Post that those who are earmarked in the report have been given the time to review the allegations and provide feedback, which is standard practice. "Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker!"

A report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation's internal watchdog into the agency's handling of an enquiry into the management of emails by former USA presidential candidate Hilary Clinton will be released next week, the agency said on Thursday. There are so many disgusting things to tell, the public has the right to know.

The president fired the FBI director in May 2017 with the White House claiming the dismissal was not about the Russian Federation investigation - but instead about the handling of the Clinton investigation - although Trump later told NBC the probe of Russia's role in the 2016 election was part of his reasoning.

Comey, without telling his Justice Department bosses what he was about to do, announced publicly in July 2016 that he was recommending the case be closed with no charges. "We anticipate releasing the report on June 14, 2018".
