Watchdog President Hits Some Key Notes From The Newly Released Report But Urges Americans To Read It For Themselves: “Don’t Just Trust The Media”
President over Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, picks over the 500-page report released that covers the supposed handling of the Clinton email scandal. The document reportedly shows a dual system of justice that cleared Clinton while continuing the investigation on Trump without substantial evidence. Take a look at the report for yourself: HERE.
According to CBS News, the long-awaited Department of Justice Inspector General report on the handling of the Clinton email investigation by the Justice Department and FBI has been released.
The report, more than 500 pages long, focuses on former FBI chief James Comey and the decisions he made during the course of the Clinton investigation. It describes Comey as “insubordinate” while also criticizing then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for weak leadership. It also criticizes FBI official Peter Strzok for his priorities and communications in the Clinton email probe.
Conservative Republicans in particular have been calling for the report to be released, and President Trump has long blasted the Justice Department and FBI, demanding answers and information. “What is taking so long with the Inspector General’s Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey,” Mr. Trump tweeted earlier this month. “Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker! There are so many horrible things to tell, the public has the right to know.”
As Written By The Hill:
The Justice Department inspector general on Thursday castigated former FBI director James B. Comey for his actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation and found that other senior bureau officials showed a “willingness to take official action” to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.
The 500-page report, documenting major missteps in one of the most politically charged cases in the FBI’s history, provides the most exhaustive account to date of bureau and Justice Department decision-making throughout the investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, particularly in the months just before she would lose the presidential election to Trump.
