Read The DOJ Watchdog's Report On The Hillary Clinton Email Investigation

"Now we see it in actual writing in this report that the swamp was doing everything possible to try to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president". Strzok was also involved in the Clinton email probe. "No he's not. We'll stop it".

The August 8, 2016, text message exchange was discovered by investigators using forensic tools in May 2018.

We were deeply troubled by text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations.

The report characterized the politically-charged text messages as "antithetical to the core values of the FBI", but investigators "did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed".

Comey wrote an op-ed in The New York Times on Thursday saying he doesn't agree with all of the inspector general's findings, but that he respects the investigation.

But the report could also do more to back Democratic claims that the FBI actually contributed to Trump's victory, most notably by reopening in the final days of the race its investigation into whether Clinton mishandled classified information.

Considering making it clear that, except in situations where the law requires or permits disclosure, an investigating agency can not publicly announce its recommended charging decision without consulting the attorney general, deputy attorney general, US attorney, or a designee, and can not proceed without the approval of one of these officials. It would then be up to prosecutors to decide whether to bring criminal charges. Two days before the November 8 election, Comey said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had found no additional evidence in the new emails. Despite this, Comey just had to say something to keep Republicans at bay, so he made up his "extremely careless" remark-something that was both inappropriate and lacked any legal foundation.

He later headed a separate probe into the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

Trump regularly claims McCabe had a conflict of interest in overseeing the FBI's investigation into Clinton, given that his wife received campaign donations from a Clinton ally. "And it reaffirmed the president's suspicions about [former FBI Director James] Comey's conduct and the political bias among some of the members of the FBI". In the memo, Rosenstein outlined Comey's actions did damage to the bureau.

How will President Trump react? That much-anticipated report is due to be released Thursday afternoon. The inspector general attached to the report a "law enforcement sensitive" appendix about the FBI's former No. 2 official.

Horowitz criticized Comey for failing to consult with Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other senior Justice Department officials before taking the unusual step in July 2016 of announcing on national TV the FBI's decision not to refer the Clinton case for prosecution. This is the same charge against Clinton prompting her investigations. McCabe's attorney, Michael Bromwich, has called the referral "unjustified". He was also "responsible for supervising the investigation on a daily basis", according to the report.

The watchdog report being released Tuesday said Comey was not motivated by bias at the news conference. They asked Horowitz to provide them with his original drafts.

"In facts, all facts contained in the report lead to the conclusion that the delay was caused by a variety of factors and miscommunications that had nothing to do with Special Agent Strzok's political views". "However, I have no faith that those under investigation are also able to provide an unbiased review and edit the IG's work".

"But even in hindsight I think we chose the course most consistent with institutional values", Comey wrote. Cases that end without charges are rarely discussed publicly.
