Chaffetz: 'Explosive' IG Report Adds to James Comey's 'Legal Problems'

Chaffetz: 'Explosive' IG Report Adds to James Comey's 'Legal Problems'

"We found no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias, or other improper considerations", the report says, according to the source.

"James Comey's legal problems continue to grow", said Chaffetz, arguing Comey divulged classified information just like Clinton did when he leaked his memos on his conversations with President Trump.

Overseen by Mueller, the probe is examining whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the 2016 election in his favor.

From a practical standpoint, Comey's "punishment" for any claims of insubordination came over a year ago, when Trump summarily fired him.

"If anyone else shows up in this report to have done something that requires termination we will do so", Sessions said. Trump allegedly used the Donald J. Trump Foundation to pay off creditors, settle legal disputes for his businesses, and, in one case, buy a $10,000 portrait of himself.

That text, the report said, was "indicative of a biased state of mind" - and suggested that Strzok may have intentionally slow-rolled the review of emails connected to the Clinton investigation discovered after the probe was closed, which were on a laptop belonging to former congressman Anthony Weiner. However, Trump's original justification for axing Comey - failing to follow Justice Department protocols - quickly fell by the wayside when Trump said he did it with the "Russia thing" on this mind.

Reports say FBI Agent Peter Strzok texted: "we'll stop trump from becoming president".

Its findings will revive debate about whether Federal Bureau of Investigation actions affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election and contributed to Clinton's loss to Donald Trump. But the practical effect of Inspector General Michael Horowitz's findings will likely now pour lighter fluid on an already heated debate about the actions and motivations of law enforcement that has continued to simmer throughout the Trump administration. "The conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation".

Page has since left the FBI and Strozk, who was assigned but then removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's interference in 2016 election, remains with the agency.

The Justice Department's internal watchdog is releasing its much-anticipated report on the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

While some of their messages were anti-Trump, others took aim at lawmakers such as U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, whom Clinton defeated for the Democratic presidential nomination.
