The day has finally come when the American people can see the IG report that looked into the Obama Administration’s behavior during the Clinton email investigation.
As we suspected, it was a total disgrace.
It’s a total mess.
Here’s an overview.
From Fox News:
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, in a comprehensive and at-times scathing report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, exposed extraordinary text messages by a top FBI official vowing to “stop” Donald Trump — while calling then-director James Comey’s actions in the case “insubordinate.”
The long-awaited report was released Thursday afternoon, spanning nearly 600 pages and scrutinizing the actions of numerous figures who played a key role in the Justice Department and FBI’s investigation. It is the result of an 18-month investigation, incorporating dozens of witness interviews and hundreds of thousands of documents.
But one of the most stunning findings concerns texts between agent Peter Strzok and bureau colleague Lisa Page.
According to the report, Page texted Strzok in August 2016 and said: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.
Strzok was a lead investigator on the Clinton case and later worked the Russia investigation before being removed from that assignment.
You’d have to think that some criminal referrals would be filed here, right?
According to Giuliani, that’s very likely.
From The Daily Caller:
President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giulani said Thursday that Comey “really has a chance of being prosecuted” following the bombshell investigator general (IG) report showing former FBI Director James Comey used personal emails on multiple occasions in advance of the 2016 elections.
“The first thing we are going to get is a report from Inspector General Horowitz on Comey’s handling of Hillary, which I think is going to be very, very critical, as it should be. Comey really has a chance of being prosecuted as a result of [his handling of the report], but we’ll see,” Giuliani said on the radio show “The Cats Roundtable” Thursday.
There is now no doubt that the Obama Admin. bent over backwards and lied in order to make sure Hillary Clinton was let off the hook. The fix was in. No rational person can argue that at this point.
The only question now is whether or not these people will be held accountable.
Anyone who tries to spin this as no big deal isn’t telling you the truth. This should terrify every American regardless of party. If it could happen in a Democrat admin. it could happen in a Republican one.
