HERE IT IS – Inspector General Report on FBI and DOJ Conduct During Clinton Investigation – Full 568 page pdf

The 18-month Inspector General review of the DOJ/FBI investigation of the Hillary Clinton email has been released – OIG RELEASE LINK HERE

This IG inquiry is specifically looking into whether the FBI investigation was corrupted by political influence in their determination of the Clinton outcome. The IG report provides background on the overall issues, the potential crimes; the subsequent coverup; and the corruption that infested the 2016 Department of Justice and the FBI.

Here’s The Report:

(pdf link)

.

Don’t Comment Unless You’ve Read The Full Report

Important note.  Read, but don’t focus on, the “executive summary” or “conclusions”; those two sections were written by political administrators in FBI and DOJ leadership.  Focus on the substance of the documented facts within the IG report.  You’ll note the specific facts don’t support the “summary/conclusion”.

Analysis will follow.

    IMHO, the third paragraph under “CHAPTER SIXTEEN: CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS” foretells what is coming next from the IG. There was bias involved in the “Russian investigation”. It almost appears that he went out of his way to single it out. It is the first thing he addresses in the “Conclusion”.

      As Sundance has noted: The summary and the conclusions were NOT written by the IG, but by high level administrators in the DOJ. My guess is Wray and Rosenstein.

      The content of the Report is devastating and contains huge amounts of very serious allegations. It makes the FBI look awful….hence the need for the administrators to write the Summary and Conclusions.

    Now I know a crook, he came from my home town
    He wore his passion for his Treason like a beastly crown

    And think of things that might have been

    White-washing away, White-washing away
    You know the nearer the revelation
    The more you’re White-washing away

    And I know a father, who had a son
    Became a traitor and excused away all the things he’d done
    He came a long way just to explain
    He covered up his tracks as best he could
    Then he turned around and headed home again

    White-washing away, White-washing away
    You know the nearer your exposure
    The more you’re White-washing away

    God only knows, God makes his plan
    The information’s unavailable to the mortal man
    We work our jobs collect our pay
    Believe were gliding down the highway
    When in fact were White-washing away

    White-washing away, White-washing away
    You know the nearer your discovery
    The more you’re White-washing away

    White-washing away
    You know the nearer your revelation
    The more you’re White-washing away…

    Comey has to be one incredibly dense individual. In trying to explain his lack of action on the emails found on the Weiner laptop, on Page viii of the Executive Summary, he says, “I don’t know that I knew that [Weiner] was married to Huma Abedin at the time.”

        This statement by Comey can’t be anything BUT a lie.

        Let’s think about it for a moment… Let’s say YOU are the director of the FBI. You have just been told that thousands of HRC emails had been discovered on the laptop of someone being investigated for “sexual exploitation of children” and “activities related to child pornography” (among other things).

        Why in the world wouldn’t your FIRST questions be, “Who is this person? and “How did HRC emails get onto his laptop?” And the answer to those two questions would have contained the tidbit (as if he didn’t already know) that Weiner was married to Abedin.

        Unless, of course, you wouldn’t want to ask those questions because of the linkage of child porn to HRC. Because you are afraid of where that just might lead…

        • DJ says:

          Also, there has been discussion in the past that there has been absolutely NO evidence that any sort of actual investigation of the emails took place AFTER Comey announced the reopening of the investigation. Perhaps that’s because the investigation actually DID take place in the month prior completely under the table. Because they had to search all emails and other content to make sure that HRC or others weren’t associated with any possible child porn documents on the laptop. So by the time the investigation was announced as reopened, they already knew the contents of the emails so no subsequent investigation needed to take place.

          Just a thought…

    ………

    First as Sundance said:
    “…Read, but don’t focus on, the “executive summary” or “conclusions”; those two sections were written by political administrators in FBI and DOJ leadership. Focus on the substance of the documented facts within the IG report. You’ll note the specific facts don’t support the “summary/conclusion”….”

    Second, President Trump (and AG Sessions) HAVE to take the monster they inherited and kick it into shape WHILE still running this YUGE country. Neither of them have the luxury of firing everyone and starting over, mores the pity. That means they can not go to extremes and completely condemn the FBI and the DOJ. They HAVE to support the department while still acknowledging they need to clean out the traitors and deadwood.

    President Trump is a builder and he needs to keep people’s faith in the US government at least at a moderate level so we can MAGA.

    Now with that in mind reread: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dfq-l0oXcAAJXXC.jpg

    Get rid of the political language and you, start off with the report reveals a number of significant errors by senior leadership. [ Acknowledges the problem also unsaid is the personel have been removed]

    Should be seen as an opportunity. Director Wray’s mission is to RETURN the Agency to what it was.[read should be] President Trump has no choice but to rebuild the FBI.

    Thanks Horrowitz and say this is not the end of the investigations by Horrowitz and Huber [think more indictments to come] and mentions possible Special Council if required.

    Reassures the rank and file agents who are probably even more angry than we are that the actions of some will not cause fallout on all. [Remember President Trump who has been sinned against BIGLY is their boss and could make life very tough if he wishes.]
    ……

    Believe me I am Angry enough at that mealymouth executive summary to chew steel and spit nails. Sessions comments were not what I wanted to see but I understand why they were made. Remember that 80% of the country has ZERO idea of how bad the problems really were and need to be reassured the country is in good hands. (Think MAGA Economy.)

    Bottom of page 107. Combetta can’t recall the conversation with Mills and Kendall immediately before he used bleach bit, but he can recall that he used bleach bit on his own therefore takes responsibility without implicating Clinton or anyone else. Of course, this convenient epiphany takes place immediately after he is granted immunity, and the FBI doesn’t blink an eye. UNREAL. Note the difference in approach utilized by Mueller in compelling an attorney to give grand jury testimony against Manafort in a situation where the attorney is alleged to have engaged in illegal activity. We already knew that the FBI was engaged in an intentionally narrow investigation, and we all can see the stark difference between the scope of the Clinton (toothpick narrow) and Mueller-Russia (amorphous balloon) investigations, but the readiness to dole out immunity on account of having an investigation seeking only one possible outcome is just plain sickening. Nevermind that Mills also should have been a target, as she was a government employee, not a private attorney, during most of the relevant timeframe. Nothing to see here….. Shameful.

      Maybe someone can help me to understand. I am familiar with basic industrial control theory. It is basic to understand that all instruments have some error in them. But several are involved in any one control loop. The errors don’t add to amount to one big error – rather they randomly tend to cancel the total error out. Plus here but about the same percent of error but in the minus direction there.
      If all the discretionary choices and mistakes in the investigation all point in the direction of exoneration or non conclusion why shouldn’t I suspect that was the desired outcome? Bias being the most reasonable explanation.
      No smoking gun, nothing that anyone can really get a grip on and point to as evidence of a fix – but
      an accumulation of seemingly innocent judgments and events that only go one way.
      I hope this report is so bland only because there are several criminal investigations still going on and the IG is being careful to avoid making too many details public. I hope. But I would feel much better if Congress could finally prevail on Sessions to appoint a second special council. Someone who would be forthcoming with the Congressional Committees, as well as being capable of doing a robust investigation. This report seems proof positive that the DOJ cannot be trusted to investigate itself and its partners. It does nothing but to make me feel that the cover up just goes on – now right before my eyes to add insult to injury. But I retain my one tiny bit of hope. Please let it be.

        If everyone were “investigated” this way no one would ever be convicted of anything. Imagine if these statements were about Obama’s agents talked a lot about hateful things like this. It’s obvious whitewash. The fact that it’s the president and brazenly nothing is being done means it still the agenda to get or ruin PTrump. PTrump isn’t being treated with the respect his position as president entitles him. It’s interesting that Bush professed to treat Obama with respect because he was president and said he respected the presidency – but doesn’t treat PTrump with respect. The IG report was purposely insulting in its recommendations- juvenile insulting in recommending banners on cell phones, training…

    They substantiated and gathered much evidence that is documented in their work papers that could be used for Criminal Prosecutions.

    No need to wait for any other IG reports; there is enough evidence even without this IG report to have grand juries and indictments. This IG report will help; because the facts are now documented.

    Wouldn’t PDJT now want to see if there are on-going impaneled grand jury investigations of the Clinton foundation and Uranium One. If not, wouldn’t he fire everyone.

    It’s good that the New York attorney general is suing the Trump foundation and the left continues to try and destroy him. Maybe PDJT will move up his plan and order the DOJ/FBI to release all documents. Maybe this IG report is PDJT red line. Isn’t this the right moment for PDJT to act?

      Did Horowitz really have 400 lawyers? I remember hearing Huber had 400+ but Horowitz also?

      Egads! You know what that works out to? That’s (roughy) 500 days for 400 lawyers to write 500 pages.

      In other words, the OIG needed 400 lawyers to write ONE PAGE of the report PER DAY.

      Frankly, Sundance, single handedly, probably could have written almost the same report in 3-4 weeks using his work posted here at CTH.

        Actually, that is a good benchmark, be it for good clean source code or pages of marketing material. About one page per workday, for high quality work. Exceptional quality can run a week per page.
        (Not assessing the report, which I have not read, but hopefully it is not off-the-cuff fiction.)

          FYI, notice not a single DOJ text?

          Where are the Page-Strzok 50,000 – 65,000 texts?

            As for their text, some or all could be contained in the classified attachment to this particular report.

                In due time. OIG keeps finding stuff, like the recently discovered text where Strzok said “they would stop Trump” which was sent back in 2016 before the election. The more they dig, the more threads to pull on and see what unravels. But rest assured, the MOAB has been dropped and timed for mid-terms. The rest of the stuff they continue to find will just be the cleanup. We still have a good 3-4 months to take down the majority, including the ringleaders.

        Investigate, validate then record it in the report while ensuring all is indexed and cross referenced. A lot more work than you envisioned.

    “We identified numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account to conduct FBI business. We cite five examples of such use in this section,” – Inspector General Report, page 425.
    “We asked Comey about his use of personal email for FBI business and showed him the November 8, 2016 email with Rybicki as an example. Comey stated, “I did not have an unclass[ified] FBI connection at home that worked. And I didn’t bother to fix it, whole ‘nother story, but I would either use my BlackBerry, must have been or Samsung…my phone, I had two phones—a personal phone and a government phone. Or if I needed to write something longer, I would type it on my personal laptop and then send it to Rybicki, usually I copied my own address…. Yeah. And so I would use, for unclassified work, I would use my personal laptop for word processing and then send it into the FBI.”

    Comey used an unsecure personal email account (probably free Goggle) to conduct government business and then deleted his emails? Just like Hillary who he was supposed to be “investigating” for using a secret email account (and a homebrew server) who also subsequently dumped all of her incriminating emails.

      He didn’t want her transgression investigated because doing so would have called attention to his doing the same thing with his FBI computer. Trust me, it would have come up during the ensuing free-for-all with Clinton and her lawyers – “Why are you going after me when you do the same thing yourself?” If her candidacy were threatened by an FBI investigation into shoddy handling of classified there is no doubt in my mind FBI personnel loyal to Hillary would have shanked their own director to save her hide. No doubt she had loyalists right in the director’s office. Best way to protect himself was to soft-pedal her investigation, make it at least look like he and his bureau were doing their job, and hope the whole thing blew over quickly.

    “The text messages between Page and Strzok covered a wide range of topics.
    For example, we identified a large number of routine work-related communications.
    Many of the text messages were of a personal nature, including discussions about
    their families, medical issues, and daily events, and reflected that Strzok and Page
    were communicating on their FBI-issued phones as part of an extramarital affair.
    We found that this relationship was relevant to the frequency and candid nature of
    the text messages and their use of FBI-issued phones to communicate. Some of
    these text messages expressed political opinions about candidates and issues
    involved in the 2016 presidential election, including statements of hostility toward
    candidate Trump and statements of support for candidate Clinton. ”

    From Chapter Twelve. So Strzok and Page were having an affair.

    The following Strozk email of August 8, 2016 was not captured on the FBI system.

    “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

    At first I assumed it was among the many texts that weren’t captured because of the FBI system glitch. But I checked the dates. The famous “FBI system glitch lost emails” occurred between December 2016 and May 2017. The August 8, 2016 lost email occurred before the the FBI system glitch. Other emails between Page and Strozk on August 8, 2016 were captured.

    So the failure to capture only affected the one email that is most incriminating? We are supposed to believe that? I am calling BS on that excuse. Somebody went into the FBI system and intentionally deleted “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

    1. Messing with the FBI text retention system is a felony. Destruction of evidence. Obstruction of Justice.
    2. Messing with the system shows knowledge of guilty conduct.
    3. Either Strozk did it himself, of someone in IT helped.
    4. Don’t assume this is the only email that was deleted.

    I expect the only outcome of all this will be a few low-level people will get their wrists slapped, not for breaking any laws, but for getting caught.

    As the investigative/enforcement arm of the Democrat Party, the DOJ/FBI isn’t above the law, they ARE the law.

    Silver lining re: not finding political bias.
    Schumer and Dems deems the report good, rather than politically biased.
    Next IG report (FISA?) will show political bias. And the Dems will find it harder to pivot back to demonizing the IG. They will, but they lose, yet again.
    FISA investigation is more consequential. Clear that laws, not just procedures, were broken.

    Chris Farrell stated the department of justice inspector general is where truth goes to die.

    I believe/afraid waiting for another department of justice inspector general report will be written with the same bias as today’s IG report and the Constitution is at risk by waiting.

    I wish and hope PDJT would order the justice department to release all documents, fire Rosenstein and demand to see proof of grand jury investigations.

    What am I missing, it seems like the only common sense move to make?

        Inspector General has a duty not to mislead the reader with conclusions that don’t add up. There is enough evidence even without the IG report to have Grand Juries. The IG report will be extremely helpful because it has the evidence documented. The Inspector General should have just shown the evidence without writing a biased opinion. Very Disappointed. For example:
        Prosecutors’ Interpretation of the “Gross
        Negligence” Provision in Section 793(f)(1)

        Interpreting section 793(f)(1), NSD stated that prosecutors likely would be
        required to prove that the AUSA’s conduct was “criminally reckless.” NSD identified
        factors suggesting that the AUSA’s conduct did not rise to the level of gross
        negligence, including that he testified that he did not purposely ship classified
        documents to his house, and thus he did not deliberately intend to remove the
        classified documents from a secure location. In addition, the documents were not
        separated into classified and unclassified categories, and they did not contain
        proper classification markings in that the first few pages of certain documents were
        not marked but later pages in the same document contained classification
        34
        markings. Based on these and other factors, NSD concluded that prosecution was
        not warranted.

    The interesting part is that the report states the DoJ and FBI were within their prosecutorial authority to decline to prosecute Clinton. So, QED no crime was committed, yet all the evidence in the report and information made publicly available points to a real crime…conspiracy to cover the crimes of Hillary Clinton and her staff. All of the “legal” actions taken were executed within the bounds of that conspiracy…stick that up the rear end of your robes Judge Napolitano and DoJ.

    If there is not enough direct evidence to prosecute, there sure is enough to ruin the careers of anybody who was part of the Comey cover-up and to open a civil case.

    Given the facts (those I have read so far as well as those made public by Judicial Watch) to not match the conclusions or recommendation, the ball is squarely in the court of Jeff Sessions. We will now get the answer to “Back Hat or Whte Hat?” with respect Sessions. Does he go with the recommendations or the facts?
