Comey says he Disagrees with Inspector General Report

Comey says he Disagrees with Inspector General Report

"I did a great service to the people in firing him". The Justice Department accepted that recommendation. "Figure they cancel each other out". While Horowitz says Comey treated Clinton unfairly, Trump has long argued that Comey let Clinton off easy.

On Thursday, Horowitz released his almost 600-page report scrutinizing the actions of numerous figures who played a key role in the Justice Department and FBI's investigation of Clinton's email practices while she was secretary of state.

There is no reason to believe that behavior like Comey's and Strzok's ended when Comey was sacked by Trump and Strzok was reassigned from the Trump-Russia investigation.

Despite his criticism of the inspector general's report, Trump presented the report's findings as vindication of his decision to fire Comey in May past year.

While the report cited instances of bias - or the appearance of bias - Horowitz's review found "no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations".

Strzok called Sanders, also a presidential candidate, "an idiot like Trump". It did not find evidence that those views seeped into the investigation.

The conclusions were contained in a 500-page report that documents in painstaking detail one of the most controversial investigations in modern FBI history.

FBI Director Christopher Wray told reporters at a briefing that he accepted the inspector general's report, but stressed it did not find that political bias had impacted its investigations.

The country has "a disturbingly high rate of violence against women", according to Australia's human rights commission . His comments came as Lord Mayor Sally Capp told Melbourne's 3AW radio she would not feel safe walking around at night.

Republican members of Congress said they wanted to read the report before commenting.

A highly anticipated US Department of Justice report accuses ex-FBI director James Comey of being "insubordinate", but not politically biased.

Then there was the assumption that Hillary Clinton would win - and ought to win. Investigators still had a lot to say, however. She told the inspector general she decided not to step aside because it might "create a misimpression" that she and the former president had discussed inappropriate things. He didn't track down the Weiner laptop lead for a month - and when he did, he chose to reveal the information to Congress because, according to the IG, he believed "that candidate Clinton was going to win the presidency and that she would be perceived to be an illegitimate president if the public first learned of the information after the election".

Horowitz found that while the actions of senior FBI leaders, like then-FBI Director James Comey, "cast a cloud" over the investigation, their actions were not driven by political bias, and there is no evidence that they acted to influence the outcome of the investigation.

Forwarding "a proposed post-election message" to all Federal Bureau of Investigation employees from his unclassified Federal Bureau of Investigation account to his Gmail account on November 8 2016 (election day), explaining his fateful decision to reveal that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had found more Clinton emails just 11 days before the election.

Strzok and then-FBI attorney Lisa Page were singled out and chastised for their anti-Trump texts amid the Clinton and Russian Federation probes.

Both Strzok and Page worked on the Clinton probe.
