IG Report Says Top FBI Officials Showed a ‘Willingness to Take Official Action’ to Stop Trump

Eric Thayer/Reuters
The Department of Justice inspector general released a sweeping report Thursday, condemning former FBI director James Comey for being “insubordinate” in his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and accusing other top FBI officials of displaying a “willingness to take official action” to stop President Trump’s election.
The roughly 500-page report, delivered to Congress Thursday, stopped short of saying the political bias present within the bureau affected the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Inspector General Michael Horowitz found “no evidence that the conclusions by department prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations.”
Horowitz’s investigation confirmed the FBI’s conclusion that some of Clinton’s emails contained classified information but she did not intend to compromise the information.
The report deals a significant blow to Comey, the former FBI director who recently embarked on a tour to promote his book on ethical leadership.
Investigators found that Comey made a “serious error of judgment” in sending a letter to Congress on Oct. 28, just days before the election, announcing that he was reopening the Clinton investigation. The report said it was “extraordinary that Comey assessed that it was best” to make the announcement without first consulting with Department of Justice officials. Comey is also criticized for using a personal email account when conducting official FBI business.
