Report Expected To Condemn FBI Violations In 2016 Clinton Email Investigation

A Justice Department watchdog is expected on Thursday to fault former FBI Director James Comey for violating long-standing department guidelines and mishandling the Hillary Clinton email investigation in 2016.

The probe by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz has already prompted reassignments and departures at the highest levels of the FBI. Former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe abruptly left the bureau in January, as watchdogs raced to finish their report, and later was fired outright.

McCabe's lawyer later confirmed that prosecutors in Washington, D.C., were considering a criminal referral on McCabe, who allegedly lied to investigators.

Horowitz's full report is scheduled to be released on Thursday afternoon. It may also fault former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and others.

2. Comey sending the letter to the republicans in congress 11 days before the election, didn't

follow the justice department rules, and other comments he made WITHOUT informing the Attorney General was an outrage, and was a contributory factor in interfering in the 2016 election.

It needs to be made very clear though, and I suspect our superficial press will conveniently gloss over it, that was not why trump fired him.

Of course the press was also complicit in all this by pushing the LIE that the email investigation had been reopened, and parading every right wing politician across their TV outlets propagating that LIE.

3. Be interesting to see what it says about Comey's out-of-control actions...

and how he held anti-Clinton press conferences without consulting Lynch.
