Justice Department Says Comey Was Insubordinate Over Clinton Emails

Wochit - June 14, 2018

According to the Justice Department's inspector general, former FBI Director James Comey deviated from the bureau's norms by investigating a former presidential candidate during an election. But Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report concluded that Comey did not act with any political bias during 2016 by probing Hillary Clinton's emails. According to Reuters, Horowitz found that Comey's handling of the email probe negatively impacted perceptions of the FBI and Justice Department as fair administrators of justice. In July 2016, former director Comey held a press conference about Clinton's use of a private server while serving as the Secretary of State, stating no crimes was uncovered. Two weeks before election day, Comey sent a letter to members of Congress informing that the probe was being opened again as new emails were found. But two days before the election, Comey closed the probe after finding no implicating evidence of criminal activity..
