Within news circles everywhere, all people can seem to talk about is the recently released Inspector General’s report that detailed a series of failures from top federal officials in charge of investigating the presidential election.
Hillary Clinton’s response, however, blew up the internet when she commented on Kyle Cheney’s tweet that stated:
The IG found that on numerous occasions, COMEY used a personal GMail account to conduct official FBI business, according to a source briefed on the report.”
She wrote out a simple three-worded retort:
But my emails.”
That was all she needed to say. The IG Report spoke for her.
Shortly after the report hit, James Comey wrote out a response of his own with a special New York Times op-ed, admitting that the IG Report was, in fact, “critical” of him.
He also stated that he was wrong to have “informed Congress” in late October that the FBI had re-opened its investigation into Clinton just weeks before voting was to begin in the presidential election.
To this day, Hillary Clinton and her campaign say that’s what handed Trump the presidency more than anything. If it weren’t for that “critical error” Mrs. Clinton might be sitting in the White House instead of Trump today.
But – Comey stated, along with current FBI Director Christopher Wray, that the report also was important for “not finding any evidence of political bias” at the bureau. That directly contradicts what Trump has been saying for the past year now, that somehow the FBI has been out to get him. The IG report is more evidence this isn’t the case.
Here’s the other biggie: The IG Report, however critical of Comey, also proves that there “was no prosecutable case against Mrs. Clinton,” as Comey had concluded. That proves Trump and his supporters were wrong on that one, too.
