FBI won't repeat errors noted in watchdog report, director says

FBI won't repeat errors noted in watchdog report, director says

The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee disagrees with a report from the Justice Department's inspector general that said the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe was not politically motivated.

Republicans, increasingly skeptical of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and Trump's Republican presidential campaign, said Monday they weren't convinced by the report's conclusion that the decision to spare Clinton from criminal charges was free from political bias, or by reassurances that the problems were limited to just a handful of employees.

"On August 8, 2016, Page had sent a message to Strzok asking "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right?

But he said in a tweet that he respects the inspector general's work and believes the conclusions are "reasonable". According to Horowitz, the public reopening of the investigation 11 days before the presidential election was also a glaring departure from department policy and "a serious error of judgment".

"The IG blew it at the end with that statement" that there was no political bias, Trump said on Fox News in an impromptu interview Friday on the White House lawn.

A new report by the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General accuses Comey of breaking protocol in his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

Government acts to make ‘upskirting’ a specific offence
Victims said a specific law prohibiting the craze was necessary as current legislation was often insufficient to prosecute an offender.

Mr. Giuliani said FBI Director Christopher Wray owes it to the "honest" and "decent" agents to get to the bottom of it. "We'll stop it." Both were initially involved with the Mueller investigation but later removed from the team. The report represents the culmination of an 18-month review into one of the most consequential FBI investigations in recent history.

Strzok was replying to texts from his mistress and fellow FBI agent Lisa Page, who was a subordinate to fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. "Comey will now officially go down as the worst leader, by far, in the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

There was no evidence that the investigation into Clinton's email server was influenced by political calculations.

The phrase has also been used jokingly to insult Trump supporters for latching onto the email scandal for so long, while there's plenty of better things to be concerned about.

Trump has reportedly wanted to fire Mueller on multiple occassions, but has been persuaded not to by advisors. "We'll stop it", he said in the email. Every reason for firing him is laid out here.
