DOJ Inspector General, FBI Director To Testify Monday About IG Report

DOJ Inspector General, FBI Director To Testify Monday About IG Report

The Justice Department's handling of the investigation into Clinton was attacked by Democrats and Republicans alike.

A new report from the Department of Justice's Office of Inspector General states that former FBI Director James Comey "clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms" in his treatment of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

FILE PHOTO: Former FBI director James Comey speaks about his book during an onstage interview with Axios Executive Editor Mike Allen at George Washington University in Washington, U.S. April 30, 2018. "It's probably never happened in our country before", Trump said.

The Republican committee chairman, Sen. Grassley said attorneys for Comey said he was out of the country, but said according to Comey's twitter feed, he was in Iowa for much of the weekend.

"The Justice Department faces a serious credibility problem because millions of Americans suspect that there is a double standard", Grassley said. "They see politics in that story".

Asked about whether he would take a role in a charging decision, Wray said: "What I can tell you is that I cannot imagine a situation in which I would unilaterally assume for myself as the Federal Bureau of Investigation director a charging decision, and then announce it in a news conference".

Obama said in a 2015 interview with CBS News that he first learned of Clinton's use of the private server "at the same time everybody else learned it through news reports". "Are words enough?" Kilmeade asked of the texts between Strzok and Page. "The Inspector General report went a long way to show that and I think that the Mueller investigation has been totally discredited", Trump told journalists at the White House.

While Sessions has been hit by Trump for recusing himself from the investigation, Rosenstein is responsible for overseeing the special counsel's investigation and has been criticized by Trump for not limiting the scope of Mueller's probe. But Horowitz made it clear his report did no such thing.

Wray said he won't hesitate to "throw the book" at agents who violate the rules.

Horowitz says no "rule, policy or practice is perfect" and at the same time, "neither is any individual's ability to make judgments under pressure or what may seem like unique circumstances". As Giuliani looked at it, he called it a "complete and absolute explanation" of why Comey had to be fired, and he also ripped Peter Strzok and Lisa Page for their texts about wanting to "stop" Donald Trump from becoming president.
