Report rebukes Comey, but says no bias in Clinton email case

Wochit - June 14, 2018

Former FBI Director James Comey made a “serious error of judgment” shortly before the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Comey announced that he was reopening an investigation into candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server.

But Inspector General Michael Horowitz also concluded that Comey did not exhibit any political bias in his actions.

The Justice Department’s internal watchdog also concluded that Comey did not try to influence the election.

Horowitz also does not contest the decision not to prosecute Clinton for the email affair.

Comey drew criticism from both democrats and republicans for his handling of the Clinton email investigation.

The report criticzed Comey for violating Justice Department policies.

It also accused him of usurping the authority of then Attorney General Loretta Lynch..
