DOJ Releases Report on Hillary Clinton Email Investigation

Republicans and Democrats condemned former FBI Director James Comey and other top level-agency personnel after Inspector General Michael Horowitz of the Justice Department released the much-anticipated report Thursday on the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Democrats once again focused their attention on Comey for releasing a statement to Congress in the waning days of the 2016 presidential election regarding additional emails in the Clinton Email Investigation that were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. Clinton and Democrats have long blamed Comey for the results of Clinton’s failed presidential run.

Senior Democrat and Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin said, “This report makes clear that FBI Director Comey and FBI personnel failed to follow the rules, and in doing so, hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign…”.

Republicans found the Justice Department report to be a scolding reprimand to the DOJ, FBI, and Comey for what the report indicated was a highly flawed handling of the Clinton email investigation. The Justice Department’s report further indicated that the former FBI Director’s actions in the investigation were “extraordinary and insubordinate”, but also stated that Comey was not motivated by political bias.

Senior Republican lawmaker and chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Trey Gowdy, went as far as to state, “I am alarmed, angered, and deeply disappointed by the Inspector General’s finding of numerous failures by DOJ and FBI in investigating potential Espionage Act violations by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

While the report stopped short of indicating that political bias favoring Clinton or Trump was a factor in decisions made by Comey and other high-level officials investigating the Clinton Email Scandal, the report did state concern about questionable correspondence among Lisa Page, Special Counsel to the Deputy Director and FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok.

The report states that on August 8, 2016, Strzok and Page had an intense text exchange:

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”, Page texted.

FBI Deputy Assistant Director Strzok responded with, “No. No, he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Page 149 of the Inspector General Report goes on to describe this exchange as “deeply troubled” and “potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations.”

While the report indicates Strzok’s bias could not affect the Clinton Email Investigation because he was not the sole decision maker, the report does call into question his earlier investigative decisions and whether they were affected by his political bias.

Ironically, the Inspector General’s Report did focus attention on Comey’s use of personal email to conduct FBI business. Page 426 of the 568-page document cites five occasions where Comey chose to use a personal Gmail account to conduct official FBI business.

The report states “We found that given the exigent circumstances and the frequency with which the use of personal email occurred, Comey’s use of a personal email account on multiple occasions for unclassified FBI business to be inconsistent with DOJ Policy Statement.”

While the dissection of the Inspector General’s Report has only begun, political posturing is already taking place. Peter Stzrok’s attorney released a statement questioning the IG reports conclusion that Strzok may have made decisions based on political bias. In addition, Director Comey has stated his concerns in a New York Times Op Ed piece questioning some of the report’s conclusions while also praising the Justice departments professionalism.

    1. That’s because from her first day in public office she and her husband dished up all the dirt they could find on anyone who could stand in their way and make them all subject to blackmail.


  1. This stench, goes all the way to the top, yeah I do mean the illegal phony, the one that had no business, at all to be president. Place the blame at the top, the whole democratic party, is crooked from top to bottom, the Ig report favored those crooks, with bias, how anyone could look at this as a whole and not draw the conclusions, of bias, would have to be brain dead. Clinton should have been charged with lots of crimes, and wasn’t, and the reason, she wasn’t , orders came from the top, all of Obama’s staff should face prison time for lots of corruption, Weasel wray, made me want to puke, in his speech. Overall “WE THE PEOPLE ” we are pissed and fed up.

  2. How Dick Durbin says Comey’s actions hurt Hillary is absurd. In fact, the opposite is true. In July 2016 when Comey laid out all of Hillary’s corruption and crimes which were overwhelming and obvious he didn’t go the final step and charge her whereby he allowed her to stay in the race. And again in October 2016 when he opened up the case because of the fact that classified info was found on Hillary’s Huma’s pervert husband’s home server, something known by law enforcement in NY because they were investigating sexual misbehavior charges against Weiner that would be revealed and thus leaving Comey no choice, he again declined to charge Hillary. so, if anything, Comey helped Hillary by saving her from indictment. HRC and the Dems cannot blame anyone for Hillary’s defeat but the crooked old hag herself. And despite every effort to protect her, she still LOST, thus proving the American people were aware of the truth even though Comey tried to cover it up.


  4. Horowitz BS report’s conclusion tells me now more than ever nothing will ever happen to these Treasonous Criminals who are still being protected by the Swamp Creatures. I have had quite enough!…Now is the time for President Trump to take off the Gloves. NO MORE MR. NICE GUY. The President can use the power of his office to rid America of these Treasonous Traitors. America as we know it is being attacked from within! You would have to be a braindead idiot not to see it!..”The Donald’s” advisors don’t know shit. I wish he would stop listening to these asswipes. They are filling his head with this BS like “Chicken Little” What if the sky should fall” . Well don’t look now because it is and has been falling!!…. Mr. President please don’t listen to those cowardly advisors of yours. Filling your head with BS political consequences for any actions you may take. Do whatever it takes! The American people have your back! Believe it Donald. Don’t be swayed by these cowards with their cup half empty. Rely instead on the belief that your cup is half FULL! ..Let satans sycophants know they are in a Streetfight!! It’s time to do what God elected you to do! ….Do Whatever it Takes!!!..I love you and so do the American People. You must believe that. God chose you as His tool to talk America off the ledge. Now Just Do IT!!……WHATEVER IT TAKES AMERICA HAS YOUR BACK!! BELIEVE IT!!!

    1. You are so RIGHT. There has been so much corruption and deceit in the previous years before Trump that they almost had us taken over as a nation till the people finally woke up and put someone in office that will go the right direction if it is not to late to do so! They retired military commanders that would not go along with their way of thinking and falsely accused others with false charges to keep them from tell the public what they new, to destroying our financial system and trying to make us more dependent on the gov. It has to stop and the people take back the gov. The people electing Trump, even though the dems cheated in every way they could to seal the vote in their favor, lost the election because America finally woke up!! Every place in gov office should have a 4 year limit and once you have served a office you can not serve in a gov office again and you become part of the public again!!!

  5. Is government corruption and self serving behavior any surprise,
    such behavior is inevidible when there is a lack of oversight. Brakabama made sure to destroy any vestige of oversight. America, thanks to our corrupt, tabloid press, will never know the truth and extent of the government agencies complicity and unity against us.

  6. Until the cell doors start to slam I believe nothing I read, the media is so full of s417 they are worse than those they write about.

  7. IG report is a joke! They didn’t address any of the email server crimes perpetrated by Hillary and her staff. They’re focused on whether or not Comey ‘s email server statement effected Clinton’s Presidential campaign. Why did the FBI wait six months to obtain Clinton’s servers, related laptops and phones.? Why didn’t they go in and take them right away, before any of the evidence could be destroyed? The FBI raided Paul Manfort and Micheal Cohen’s home, office, and hotel in the predawn hours and confiscated all their paper and electronic files. Why didn’t they do that with Hillary??? Those are the question the IG should be addressing – BUT DID NOT!

    Another DISTURBING action being taken by the DOJ and FBI is why they have been stonewalling CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT COMMITTEES’ REQUEST for all related correspondence relating to the Trump.Russian collusion. CONGRESS HAS THE CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY AND OVER SIGHT RESPONSIBILITY of the DOJ AND FBI. Do the words “COVER UP” make any sense here? No ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!!!!!

    The OBAMA administration will go down as one of the most CORRUPT administration in history.
    Question: Where was our,Concerned LIBERAL media (Newspapers, Magazines, Wire Services, and Television Networks) during the eight years of the OBAMA administration???

    Just to name a few missed opportunities of our concerned media:

    1. Attorney General Holder and the ATF’s “Fast and Furious” .

    2. Democratic IT Scandal.

    3. What about DNC chairwoman giving Hillary debate questions before one of the debates with Trump?

    4. Bengazi

    5. Uranium One – Real Russian Collusion

    6. Haiti Hurricane Disaster relief.

    7. Iranian Treaty

    8. Not enforcing immigration and border laws.

    9. Hillary’s state department lifted travel entry bans on two Russian citizens. (Another Russian Collusion – Hillary – Not Trump)
    A businessman and a woman attorney – Yep – The one who met with Trump Jr who supposedly had dirt on Hillary.

    10. Trump and Russian collusion.
    Phony FISA warrants – Document paid for by Democratic campaign and Hillary.

    Where is the liberal media through all of this? No RESPECT for our Constitution and our free Republic way of Life.

    Only place to get fair news is One American News (OAN) and FOX .

  8. It’s interesting reading the “bad press” from conservative publications. But the truth is that we STILL have a two-tiered justice system. Trump can be impeached if he sneezes without using a Kleenex.

    The Democrats can continue to do whatever they want with no consequences. Thus: A two-tiered justice system, which of course is no justice at all.

    You need to write your Congresspeople and let them know. You can “explain” the “Star Chamber Rules” to them.

    Star Chamber was used during the French Revolution (which consisted of denouncements, which resulted in the Guillotine)

    Star Chamber rule #1. You can “cheer” the punishment of people you detest without any evidence against them.

    Star Chamber rule #2. You had better look over your shoulder because there is someone waiting to denounce YOU tomorrow.

    This is what Democrats do not understand.

  9. When are you folks going to learn….. Killary Clinton will NEVER be charged with anything. She is protected by every government office there is. She can and did do anything she pleased. She should be in prison for life…. but it will NEVER happen. She is above and beyond any kind of accountability from the law. NO ONE will go against the Clintons. EVER….!!!!
    The ONLY way to get rid of Hillary and her “Democratic resistance”… is for , ” We The People “… to VOTE all of them out in 2018. Get rid of the SWAMP in one giant draining. Make America GREAT……. Please…..

  10. Upcoming Election has very critical Consequences in the mid term for President Trump in 2018. If the theme of democrat party supporters in office and in main stream media actually comes to be and we truly see a democrat return to majority in either House or Senate the ability of Trump’s agenda being further advanced will disappear. Given the difficulty knowing what is really likely we must encourage Republicans to remain committed to winning and work very, very hard to prevent that from happening.
