THE REPORT. COMEY, CLINTON SKATE..Office of the Inspector General U.S. Department of Justice

Recommended Posts

Office of the Inspector General U.S. Department of Justice 

Former FBI Director James Comey was “insubordinate” in handling the probe into Hillary Clinton, damaging the bureau and the Justice Department’s image of impartiality even though he wasn’t motivated by politics, the department’s watchdog found.

Although the report issued Thursday by Inspector General Michael Horowitz doesn’t deal with the origins of the probe into Russia meddling in the 2016 U.S. election and possible collusion with those around Donald Trump, the president and his Republican allies in Congress were primed to seize on it as evidence of poor judgment and anti-Trump bias within the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department.

Horowitz said that five FBI officials expressed hostility toward Trump before his election as president and disclosed in his report to Congress on Thursday that their actions have been referred to the bureau for possible disciplinary action.

One example cited in the new report is an exchange of texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page on Aug. 8, 2016. Page questioned whether Trump would become president. Strzok replied: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Under those circumstances, Horowitz said “we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up” on new evidence in the Clinton case “was free from bias.”

Clinton Decision

Horowitz, whose office said it reviewed more than 1.2 million documents and interviewed more than 100 witnesses, didn’t challenge Comey’s fundamental decision against recommending prosecution of Clinton for mishandling classified information.

But the inspector general called it “extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same.”

He said that “we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part,” but “by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice.”

The report also noted that Comey used personal email at times to conduct official business.

Horowitz examined actions taken by top officials before the 2016 election, including the handling of the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. The inquiry expanded to touch on an array of politically sensitive decisions by officials including Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Tracking Trump: Follow the Administration’s Every Move

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that John Huber, a U.S. attorney based in Utah who’s reviewing allegations of FBI bias and wrongdoing, “will provide recommendations as to whether any matter not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of Special Counsel.”

Why Mueller Is One Contestant Trump Can’t Easily Fire: A QuickTake

Some of what Horowitz discovered has already been made public, and Trump and Republican lawmakers have pounced on those findings in an effort to discredit Comey and, by extension, the investigation now being run by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In tweets, Trump has called Comey’s investigation into Clinton “phony and dishonest” and said that Comey, who he fired on May 9, 2017, left the FBI’s reputation in tatters.

Hogan Gidley, a White House spokesman, told reporters Thursday that he hadn’t yet seen the inspector general’s report and “I’m not going to get ahead of any of that.”

Most of us expected nothing from the Clinton infected, deep state owned DOJ. Here's further proof. The angry will get angrier. This is a cover up, of and for, the FBI.

My bold emphasis below.

 

'We’ll stop it': Justice Department inspector general says texting FBI lovers talked about keeping Trump from becoming president – yet insists there was no 'political bias' in Hillary Clinton email probe

DOJ inspector general report, released today, suggests texting FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page conspired to keep Donald Trump from becoming president

'No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it,' Strzok emailed Page in August 2016

IG Michael Horowitz concluded, though, that there was no 'political bias' in the probe of Hillary Clinton's email scandal 

Still, the conduct of Strzok, Page and others 'cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation' into Clinton's private email server that housed classified info

Report also blasts fired FBI chief James Comey and says he 'deviated' from established FBI practices in the Clinton email probe

Report comes on President Trump's 72nd birthday 

Horowitz criticized Comey and former AG Loretta Lynch for not communicating before announcements about major decisions in the probe

June 18 and 19 will see Horowitz testifying in Senate and House hearings on Capitol Hill

President said last week that he hoped the report wasn't being 'made weaker'

Three House Republicans are demanding Horowitz's early drafts to see if DOJ officials watered it down before Thursday's release

This is not the first time the Department and the FBI have conducted a politically-charged investigation, and it will not be the last. To protect the institutions from allegations of abuse, political interference, and biased enforcement of the law, the Department and the FBI have developed policies and practices to guide their decisions. In the vast majority of cases, they are followed as a matter of routine. But they are most important to follow when the stakes are the highest, and when the pressures to divert from them—often based on well-founded concerns and highly fraught scenarios—are the greatest. No rule, policy, or practice is perfect, but at the same time, neither is any individual’s ability to make judgments under pressure or in what may seem like unique circumstances. It is in these moments—when the rationale for keeping to the ordinary course fades from view and the temptation to make an exception is greatest—that the bedrock principles and time-tested practices of the Department and the FBI can serve their highest purpose. This notion was most effectively summarized for us by DAAG George Toscas, who was the most senior career Department official involved in the daily supervision of the Midyear investigation:

So.....just looking through the report, this means that Clinton, Podesta, Comey, and all the other scumbags are off the hook and this investigation was nothing but a f**king waste of tax payers money.

FBI has always been corrupt to the core. The list is long including the recent ranch murder. They need to be disbanded.

Another waste of money.  f**k these investigations.  It is nothing but a show.  I say we gather some real patriots together and set things off the right way.  

What ever happened to the Benghazi investigation?  Trey Gowdy all talk shinny forehead and all didn't do anything about Clinton?  I lost track of that one.

That is why they made a Coup illegal.  They know that if the people really tire of the bullshit that is happening we will step up to the plate and take back the power that is rightfully ours.  Not theirs, they are treated like f**king kings and queens and I am sick of it. Average people like you and me would be at Gitmo getting waterboarded right now if we did a 1/4 of the shit these scumbags do.
