DOJ Releasing Report on FBI'S Handling of Hillary Clinton's E-mail

President Donald Trump has looked to the hotly anticipated report to provide a fresh line of attack against Comey and the FBI as he claims that a politically tainted bureau tried to undermine his campaign and - through the later Russian Federation investigation - his presidency.

Clinton also told investigators she could not recall "any training" that she received on how to handle classified documents. "We'll stop it", Strzok replied. Thousands of their text messages have since been released to the public. That agent, Peter Strzok, was removed from the team once the texts were brought to Mueller's attention.

"[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right?"

"The conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation and sowed doubt about the FBI's work", the report concluded.

Clinton has blamed her election defeat on Comey's public disclosure of a reopening of the email investigation 11 days before the 2016 election. He acknowledged that before 2016 he never could have imagined making an announcement about an investigation - that such a task is usually left up to Justice Department leaders.

The report examined actions taken by Comey and other officials before the 2016 presidential election, including Clinton's use of a personal email server while she was Secretary of State under President Barack Obama.

The New York Times first reported the use of the server and raised the possibility that she had "violated federal requirements that officials' correspondence be retained as part of the agency's record". He also said he not briefed his bosses beforehand on the findings.

James Comey closed the investigation into Hillary Clinton and then announced it has been reopened just days before the 2016 election.

Comey made an appearance at the MSP Airport Thursday.

The investigation expanded to touch on an array of politically sensitive decisions by officials including Mr Comey and Loretta Lynch, the former attorney general.

Prosecutors Reviewing Stallone Sexual Assault Allegation
Prosecutors in the USA are reviewing a sexual assault allegation made against Sylvester Stallone which the actor has denied. In December, Stallone's lawyer said that a woman had "filed a police report alleging a rape that occurred 27 years ago".

Lynch rebuffed calls for her recusal from the investigation, choosing instead to assert that she would accept the recommendation of career prosecutors.

The report concludes that McCabe assuming oversight of the Clinton email probe in February 2016, three months after his wife lost the race, did not represent an inappropriate conflict of interest.

The IG report details many communications where discussions of politics were mixed with discussions of official actions surrounding the Hillary investigation.

The FBI, in a statement accompanying the report, accepted the conclusion that Comey broke from protocol and that errors in judgment by staff damaged the bureau's reputation.

How will President Trump react? Trump has repeatedly cited the contributions in denouncing McCabe. But the practical effect of Inspector General Michael Horowitz's findings will likely now pour lighter fluid on an already heated debate about the actions and motivations of law enforcement that has continued to simmer throughout the Trump administration.

The text was disclosed in a highly anticipated report the Justice Department inspector general is set to release on Thursday. They asked Horowitz to provide them with his original drafts. Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker!

I respect the DOJ IG office, which is why I urged them to do this review.

"But even in hindsight I think we chose the course most consistent with institutional values", Comey wrote.

"We believe that anything and everything relating to Mr. McCabe's recusals should be made public, and neither DOJ nor the OIG should do anything to hide any aspect of it", Bromwich said.
