    The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice’s woes are not over. Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a damning report that justified President Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, whose actions during the 2016 election were labeled as extraordinary and insubordinate, and outlined various issues with the FBI, which has a huge problem with leaks. The report was on the activities of the DOJ, FBI, and its principles during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. It was a criminal investigation into whether she mishandled classified information through her unauthorized and unsecure email server while serving as our...

    Imagine what defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, during the O.J. Simpson murder trial, would have done with notes to and from LAPD lead detectives Tom Lange and Philip Vannatter in which they demeaned Simpson's fans. Imagine a written exchange in which one detective said, "We'll stop him!" Imagine Cochran's opening and closing arguments, to say nothing of his cross-examination, if he'd had evidence similar to the kind of bias found in the Department of Justice inspector general's report on the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The DOJ IG report included several messages between FBI attorneys and employees who...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/19/2018 | Tom Trinko
    The IG report is really Comey 2.0. Comey spent a long time describing how Hillary had broken the law but then concluded that it was okay. Similarly, the IG report lists example after example of political bias but declares that it had no impact on the Hillary email whitewash. The IG report on the Clinton email investigation is proof positive that the entire DC justice establishment is corrupt; that they view themselves as rulers not public servants. First we were told that Comey was a straight shooter whom we could trust. Then we were told the same about Mueller, Rosenstein,...

    The FBI is determined to not repeat any of the mistakes identified in a harshly critical watchdog report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Director Chris Wray said Monday at a congressional hearing at which he repeatedly sought to distance himself from his predecessor. Wray told lawmakers that the FBI accepted the findings of the inspector generals report and has begun making changes, including about how it handles especially sensitive investigations. The FBI is also reinforcing through employee training the need to avoid the appearance of political bias, a key point of criticism in last weeks report,...

    In a sane world, if the Justice Departments internal watchdog discovered that the FBI official who began a counterintelligence investigation into an opposition partys presidential candidate texted his lover a few days later that well stop the candidates election, it would cause immediate action. At a minimum, the counterintelligence investigation now in the hands of a special prosecutor would be suspended pending further review of its reasons and sources, the entire sordid enterprise suddenly appearing to be the fruit of a very poisonous tree. Washington, unfortunately, is not a sane world.

    Department of Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz has released his 500 plus-page report, which purports to shine a light on the mishandling at top levels of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation of the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clintons use of a private e-mail server while she served as Secretary of State under former President Obama. Such mishandling included violations of Department of Justice standards and FBI protocols. The report from the Department of Justices Office of the Inspector General (OIG) criticized certain actions and decisions of former FBI Director James Comey, together with those of...

    Following the traditional process for releasing high-profile reports the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG) report will be released tomorrow with a briefing to congress and the president happening around Noon, and a public release at 3:00pm. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief the President while senior officials from the DOJ will brief congress and their staff. The 500-page report will cover the DOJ and FBI conduct surrounding the Clinton classified email investigation, and was originally commissioned during the Obama administration to review whether the FBI and DOJ politicized the Clinton investigation and subsequent outcome.

    President Trumps lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that he thinks former FBI Director James Comey could be prosecuted as a result of a report from the Justice Departments (DOJ) internal watchdog that is expected to be released next week. "I think the report of Horowitz, the [inspector general], and the Justice Department will confirm that Comey acted improperly with with regard to the Hillary Clinton investigation," Giuliani said an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis. The first thing we are going to get is a report from Inspector General Horowitz on Comeys handling of Hillary, which I think is...

    The highly anticipated report from the Justice Department's inspector general is expected to yield an unvarnished account of multiple missteps by former top officials at the department and FBI for their failure to follow long-standing protocols in the handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe, according to sources familiar with the matter. While sources caution the report is not yet final, and responses from individuals named in the report will be included, the exhaustive review of a momentous period in the department's history is expected to criticize former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the investigation at key junctures for...

Thats a long time for a single investigation, and with good reason. The scale of the misconduct is staggering. John Spiropoulos, a former TV news reporter at WJLA, the ABC affiliate in Washington, DC, has created a series of video reports as a reminder on the background on the crime, the coverup and the corruption.

    Judicial Watch Director of Investigations Chris Farrell discusses the DOJ inspector generals report that outlines exhaustive political corruption. OIG release #1 proving former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe authorized leaks to the media, then lied to FBI investigators in an effort to cover them up. There are so many threads of information surrounding the 2016 operation to conduct political surveillance on the Trump campaign by various officials and offices within corrupt structures of government, its easy to get lost. However, if we take all the various bits of information and place them together a less confusing picture emerges. The {Go...

Decades before McCabe cleared Hillary in the FBIs controversial email investigation.

The New York Times broke McCabes alleged leaking to the media first. According to their four people familiar with the inquiry, Horowitzs report will accuse McCabe of authorizing the leaks that led to an October 2016 piece in the Wall Street Journal that revealed on ongoing dispute about how to handle the investigation into Hillary Clintons emails that had...

    A new name in the greatest criminal conspiracy in the history of American politics, namely the conspiracy by liberal Democrats to frame and destroy President Trump with the 35-page lie we now know as the Trump dossier, is now being mentioned, but investigators want to keep his name as hush-hush as possible, obviously for his own protection and to maintain as much secrecy as possible in the investigation of the Obamagate scandal. Bill Preistap is the Director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division and Peter Strzoks boss. Multiple sources are now corroborating that Preistap has flipped and is fully cooperating with...

    Since at least July 2016, the upper echelon of the FBI and the Department of Justice began a stealth operationwith the complicity if not instigation of President Obamato taint and destroy Candidate Trump with a concocted Russia collusion narrative. Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, has been running a little-watched parallel investigation that is already producing resultswhen he is not manipulated or overborn by Robert Mueller. His name is not familiar to most Americans, but Mr. Horowitz has played an important role since President Obama named him Inspector General (IG) for the Department of Justice in...
