(Worthy News) - Fired FBI Director James B. Comey was “insubordinate” and a top agent’s political bias might have skewed the bureau’s focus on candidate Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton in the waning days of the 2016 presidential race, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in a report that cast shame on the storied bureau.
The agent, Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok, was caught in a text message telling paramour Lisa Page, then an FBI lawyer, that they would prevent Mr. Trump from winning the White House, according to the report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
Ms. Page asked Mr. Strzok for reassurance that Mr. Trump couldn’t win the election. Mr. Strzok replied: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
Investigators concluded that while Mr. Comey wasn’t motivated by political bias, he did repeatedly break department rules — including with his striking July 2016 exoneration of Mrs. Clinton and his October 2016 letter suggesting she may once again be in jeopardy.
