James Comey and Federal Bureau of Investigation criticised by watchdog over Hillary Clinton emails

Comey 'broke norms but not biased' - agency watchdog report

The Justice Department's long-awaited report found Comey was "insubordinate" in his handling of the Clinton email probe, but no evidence of political bias in deciding not to prosecute the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic Party presidential candidate for mishandling official email.

In a tweet, the president lashed out at Comey, as well as FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page, who were removed from Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: "US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's special counsel investigation last summer over concerns of anti-Trump bias".

For example, Peter Strzok wasn't going to stop Trump from being elected by anything having to do with the Clinton investigation, which was already over by August 2016. "We'll stop it", Mr Strzok responded. But, in texts released Thursday, Page asks Strzok whether Trump might actually win the White House.

Democrats said the inspector general's report provided no grounds to undermine Mueller's continuing investigation. "Right?!" Page texted Strzok. He said that would be better than Mueller's investigation because it's internal and less likely to suffer from mission creep. The report focused in part on Comey's announcement in July 2016 that Clinton acted improperly but did nothing illegal.

Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said there's a "good chance" the president will decide next week whether to answer questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a crucial choice that could shape the course of his presidency.

According to Horowitz's report, Obama was one of only a few people who had "direct contact" with Clinton through her private email account.

Russian Federation is now hosting the World Cup, and promised "unprecedented" security measures in all cities hosting the games. Moscow police said the driver was a 28-year-old national from Kyrgyzstan, who was now being questioned in custody.

The president repeatedly attacked Comey, calling him "the ringleader of this whole den of thieves" at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and said his actions were likely "criminal".

The Justice Department has also issued a stinging rebuke to the FBI for its handling of the email investigation.

"I can remember like it was yesterday where I was and what I was doing when I learned of these text messages", he told CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin.

"We found no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations; rather, we determined that they were based on the prosecutors' assessment of the facts, the law and past department practice", the report says.
