House Judiciary & Oversight: FBI's Handling of Clinton Investigation

House GOP leaders open probe into FBI's handling of Clinton investigation

The chairman of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees announced on Tuesday a joint investigation into how the FBI handled last year's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server.

"Decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 have led to a host of outstanding questions that must be answered," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said in a joint statement.

The two Republican leaders said they have questions about the FBI's decision to openly declare the bureau's investigation into Clinton's handling of classified information, while quietly investigating Trump campaign associates.

They are also interested to know why the FBI decided to formally notify Congress of the probe on two separate occasions; why the FBI — rather than the Justice Department — recommended that Clinton not be charged after the investigation concluded; and the reasoning behind their timeline for announcing such decisions.

"The Committees will review these decisions and others to better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn. Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken," their statement continued.

House panels to grill Comeys former chief of staff on FBI probe of Clinton

A pair of House committees on Thursday morning will grill former FBI Director James Comey’s onetime chief of staff as part of an ongoing joint probe into the bureau’s handling of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

For months, FBI official James Rybicki has been hotly sought by Republicans, who have suggested his testimony could provide support for President Trump’s decision to fire Comey in the spring of last year.

Rybicki is expected to face questions from members of the Oversight and Government Reform and the Judiciary committees on the drafting of Comey’s 2016 memo clearing Clinton, that year’s Democratic presidential nominee, as well as a series of texts between two agents criticizing 2016 election candidates, including Trump.

Lawmakers will be limited to questions related to how the bureau handled the Clinton investigation, according to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). The narrow scope is likely to avoid conflicting with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia. That investigation includes probing whether Trump’s dismissal of Comey was an effort to obstruct justice.

Former Comey aide grilled by House panel for over seven hours
Two House panels on Thursday questioned former FBI Director James Comey’s former chief of staff during a closed-door interview that lasted more than seven hours.

FBI official James Rybicki faced questions from lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee and the Oversight and Government Reform Committee as part of a joint investigation into the way the bureau handled the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

Democrats have slammed the investigation as a sham designed to distract from the federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia, while Republicans have defended it as a legitimate oversight exercise. Oversight chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) characterized the interview as nothing more than a standard deposition.

Lawmakers of both parties filtered in and out of interview tight-lipped on the details of the interview, although they largely indicated that Rybicki was cooperating with the questions. Without divulging particulars, Gowdy described it as turning up previously unknown information. Like a similar marathon interview with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in December, the briefing was confidential but not classified. <BIG SNIP more blah blah "A colossal waste of time” at the link>

CNN
Justice Dept. watchdog briefs lawmakers on investigation into FBI's Clinton email probe

(CNN)The Justice Department watchdog briefed a bipartisan group of lawmakers Tuesday on its investigation into the FBI's actions during the 2016 election, including its probe into Hillary Clinton's emails.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is nearing the conclusion of the investigation, which includes scrutiny of the actions of senior officials, such as former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Horowitz met Tuesday with House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, the panel's top Democrat, Elijah Cummings of Maryland, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia and top Democrat Jerry Nadler of New York. ...

In the fall, Republicans on House Oversight and Judiciary Committees launched their own investigation into the FBI and Justice Department's handling of the Clinton email probe. The committees have held two closed-door interviews, with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and James Rybicki, who served as Comey's chief of staff. ...

Horowitz's report is expected to be completed as early as March, although that date could still be pushed back. Asked if the report was likely to come out in March or later, like April, Gowdy said "April."

GOP close to issuing subpoena for Justice records linked to Clinton probe, lawmaker says

A top House Republican is preparing to subpoena the Justice Department for records gathered by its inspector general in his review of how the FBI handled its 2016 investigation of Hillary Clinton, according to two GOP sources familiar with the congressman’s plans.

Lawmakers have clamored to obtain the 1.2 million documents that the inspector general, Michael Horowitz, has gathered in his investigation, which has already led to the ouster of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on the eve of his retirement. But so far, Republicans have complained that the Justice Department has turned over only a few thousand of the documents.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is preparing to issue an “imminent” subpoena to the department to produce the documents, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) said in an interview. A Republican committee source also confirmed that the subpoena was expected to come soon. ...

Ratcliffe, a former prosecutor, said the forthcoming subpoena was a reflection of frustration among GOP lawmakers with the pace of cooperation from the Justice Department, which also clashed with Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee over classified intelligence about its decisions to surveil a former Trump campaign aide in 2016 and 2017.

Reuters
Justice Dept. watchdog to report on Clinton-related FBI leaks

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A long-awaited U.S. Justice Department internal watchdog report on former FBI chief James Comey’s public disclosures on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state and whether FBI employees leaked information to try to hurt her 2016 presidential bid is expected to be issued next month.

The report from Michael Horowitz, the department’s inspector general, arises from an investigation he launched about a week before Republican President Donald Trump, who defeated Democrat Clinton in the election, took office in January 2017.

In a letter last week to Republican Representative Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Horowitz said his office was “working diligently” to complete the report and expected to release it in May.

Horowitz’s letter did not offer details of what will be in the report. In a Jan. 12, 2017 letter to five congressional committees, he enumerated 2016 election-related issues his office would look into.

Clinton has called the FBI investigation into her emails and Comey’s public disclosures about it significant factors in her loss to Trump, who fired Comey as FBI director in May 2017.

Justice Dept. inspector general finishes draft of report on Clinton email case

The Justice Department inspector general has completed a draft of its report criticizing law enforcement’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe, and current and former officials will begin reviewing the findings this week and lobbying for changes before the report probably becomes public next month.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz notified lawmakers in a Wednesday letter that the draft report was complete and being made available to the agencies and individuals examined in the probe.

The report is expected to blast former FBI director James B. Comey for various steps he took in the investigation, particularly his announcing in July — without telling his Justice Department bosses what he was about to say — that the FBI was recommending that Clinton not be charged, and for revealing to Congress just weeks before the presidential election that the bureau had resumed its work.

It also will probably take aim at others at the FBI and Justice Department, and provide President Trump, a frequent vocal critic of the department and Comey in particular, political ammunition to press his case that law enforcement has been out to get him. Trump last month blasted former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe after the inspector general released a separate report accusing the ex-No. 2 official of inappropriately authorizing a media disclosure, then lying several times to investigators about it.

CNN
McCabe seeks immunity for testimony in congressional hearing over FBI handling of Clinton email probe

(CNN)Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has requested the Senate Judiciary Committee provide him with immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying at an upcoming congressional hearing focused on how senior officials at the FBI and Justice Department handled the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server, according to a letter obtained by CNN.

"Under the terms of such a grant of use immunity, no testimony or other information provided by Mr. McCabe could be used against him in a criminal case," wrote Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has requested McCabe testify next week.

Grassley, an Iowa Republican, has quietly requested that several former officials appear in front of the Judiciary Committee to discuss the long-awaited internal Justice Department report, which sources say will detail a series of missteps surrounding the Justice Department and FBI's investigation into Clinton's handling of classified information while secretary of state.

The inspector general's report has not yet been released, but Grassley has invited former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify as well, according to those familiar with the plans.

ABC News
DOJ watchdog finds James Comey defied authority as FBI director, sources say

The Justice Department's internal watchdog has concluded that James Comey defied authority at times during his tenure as FBI director, according to sources familiar with a draft report on the matter. ...

There is no indication the president has seen – or will see – a draft of the report before its release. Horowitz, however, could revise the draft report now that current and former officials mentioned in it have offered their responses to the inspector general's conclusions, according to the sources.

Almost from the start, the long-awaited report was expected to chastise Comey for his handling of the Clinton-related probe. But in apparently describing Comey's defiance of authority, the draft report was criticizing a man who prided himself on his leadership style at the FBI and has since dedicated his post-government life to promoting a new generation of effective leaders.

The draft of Horowitz's wide-ranging report specifically called out Comey for ignoring objections from the Justice Department when he disclosed in a letter to Congress just days before the 2016 presidential election that FBI agents had reopened the Clinton probe, according to sources. Clinton has said that letter doomed her campaign.

Before Comey sent the letter to Congress, at least one senior Justice Department official told the FBI that publicizing the bombshell move so close to an election would violate longstanding department policy, and it would ignore federal guidelines prohibiting the disclosure of information related to an ongoing investigation, ABC News was told.

So Comey misbehaved, and it hurt Clinton, instead of trying to help her, as Trump and Fox News have been pushing.

That's a bombshell. :sarcastic:

House committees set to examine Justice Department's internal FBI report

The House Oversight and Judiciary committees have scheduled a June 19 hearing to examine the forthcoming inspector general report on the Justice Department’s and FBI’s alleged misconduct ahead of the 2016 presidential election. The document will be released on June 14th.

The backdrop: This comes after ABC News reported Wednesday that the DOJ's internal watchdog concluded that James Comey sometimes defied authority during his tenure as FBI director, citing sources familiar with a draft report on the matter. The document is also reportedly critical of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch over her handling of the federal investigation of Hillary Clinton's personal email server.

Trump to receive briefing on inspector general’s Clinton email report before it goes public

Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein is expected to brief President Trump on Thursday about the inspector general report on law enforcement’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe before it is released to the public, people familiar with the matter said.

Capitol Hill staffers were told Tuesday that scheduling and logistical conflicts would make it necessary for the Justice Department to shift its planned Thursday morning briefing to the afternoon, according to people familiar with the congressional plans. The scheduling change was apparently made to accommodate the White House, though staffers were not told the precise reason, the people said. They spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk freely about schedules that were potentially still in flux.

The president “is really anxious to see the report,” said a person familiar with the planned Thursday briefing for Trump, which is expected to take place around the same time that lawmakers are informed of the inspector general’s findings. White House lawyer Emmet Flood is also expected to be present for the briefing, but Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, is not, the person said. ...

Inspector general spokesman John Lavinsky said in a statement that the office occasionally gives pre-release briefings to Congress and the media, adding that, “for the Justice Department to brief the White House in the same manner and at the same time as the OIG briefs Congress and the press is consistent with this process.”

The long-awaited inspector general report on the FBI, Comey, Clinton, and 2016, explained

Michael Horowitz is an Obama appointee who started this review long ago. But Trump hopes to use his findings to discredit Comey.


A hotly anticipated inspector general report about then-FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation is finally complete. It’s set to be released to Congress Thursday afternoon — and is guaranteed to become a lightning rod in President Trump’s clashes with his own Justice Department.

Michael Horowitz, the inspector general writing the report, is an Obama appointee, and when he first announced he was reviewing into the DOJ and FBI’s actions all the way back in January 2017, many Clinton supporters eagerly hoped he would take Comey to task for actions that they felt inappropriately affected the presidential election.

But we now live in a world where former FBI Director James Comey is a prominent critic of Trump and an important witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the president obstructed justice.

Even though Horowitz’s report isn’t about the Russia investigation at all, it will be released in a political context dominated by both Mueller’s probe and Trump’s attacks on his Justice Department. Indeed, Trump has signaled that he’s eagerly anticipating the IG report, since it‘s expected to criticize Comey, and he is trying to undermine Comey’s credibility.

DOJ watchdog says no proof FBI officials' Trump criticism impacted probes: report

The Justice Department's ethics watchdog reportedly found no evidence that the political leanings of two FBI officials, who exchanged text messages critical of President Trump during the 2016 election, directly impacted the FBI's investigations, while noting that their conduct "cast a cloud" over the bureau's actions.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz did not find that FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page "directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed,” according to the report’s conclusions, which were obtained Thursday by Bloomberg.

“We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed,” Horowitz's report conclusions reads, according to Bloomberg. ...

Page and Strzok have faced a barrage of attacks by conservatives who say their "anti-Trump" text messages serve as proof of systemic bias against the president.

Bloomberg
Comey Broke From FBI Procedures in Clinton Probe, Watchdog Finds

Former FBI Director James Comey “deviated” from bureau and Justice Department procedures in handling the probe into Hillary Clinton, damaging the agencies’ image of impartiality even though he wasn’t motivated by politics, the department’s watchdog found in a highly anticipated report.

“While we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part, we nevertheless concluded that by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz said in the report’s conclusions, which were obtained by Bloomberg News.

Although the report being sent to Congress on Thursday doesn’t deal with the origins of the probe into Russia meddling in the 2016 U.S. election and possible collusion with those around President Donald Trump, the president and his Republican allies in Congress were primed to seize on it as evidence of poor judgment and anti-Trump bias within the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department.

Horowitz examined actions taken by top officials before the 2016 election, including the handling of the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. The inquiry expanded to touch on an array of politically sensitive decisions by officials including Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

GOP lawmakers demand drafts of DOJ report on Clinton email investigation

Republican Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Ron DeSantis (Fla.) and Matt Gaetz (Fla.) are requesting all unrevised drafts of the Department of Justice's (DOJ) report on the procedures it used during the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email use.

In a letter sent to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Thursday, the lawmakers -- all members of the House Judiciary Committee -- argue congressional oversight is needed, as drafts were circulated within the DOJ and FBI before the report was made public.

"Your team has worked to ensure that this report is thorough and accurate; however, an investigation of this magnitude and consequence deserves heightened scrutiny to ensure that the process has not been compromised in any way," they wrote. "The trust of the America people depends on it. We are concerned that during this time, people may have changed the report in a way that obfuscates your findings." The lawmakers noted the DOJ has previously rebuked requests for documents related to the investigation, adding they don't believe the security concerns cited by the agency are valid.

"Unfortunately, over the past year, the DOJ has repeatedly fought requests by Congress to produce documents related to this investigation, and when the DOJ actually provided documents, the materials have been heavily redacted," they continued. "Past and present DOJ officials have asserted security concerns, even though the documents have not legitimately contained security issues."

The RWNJs have been waiting anxiously for this report for a long time. It appears they are going to be disappointed. Deviating from departmental policy is not breaking the law, and thus no one is going be handcuffed and perp-walked. Hannity is going to be mad. :-D

Klayman will have fun with it though. After all, he predicted the report will be just another cover-up. And this will "prove" that he was right.

I'm off to see what the Q anon idiots are saying...

Ask and receive: Newsmax: Larry Klayman: IG Report on Comey a 'Cover-up':
The Justice Department's conclusion that former FBI Director James Comey deviated from protocol but wasn't motivated by political bias in the handling of a probe into Hillary Clinton's email server is a "cover-up," former federal prosecutor Larry Klayman charged Thursday.

"No surprises here," Klayman, founder of the government watchdog Freedom Watch, said in an interview with Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live."

The Latest: Wray defends FBI after scathing report

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on a report by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation (all times local):

5:55 p.m.

FBI Director Christopher Wray is defending the FBI in response to a scathing inspector general report that heavily criticized the actions of his predecessor in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Wray says the report only addresses a specific set of facts and the actions of a handful of officials. He says “nothing” in the report “impugns” the integrity of the FBI workforce as a whole.

Wray also says the report found “errors in judgment” and policy violations, but it found no evidence of political bias or improper consideration “actually impacting the investigations under review.”

The report released Thursday criticizes former FBI Director James Comey, calling him “insubordinate” and saying he broke with longstanding policy. It also criticizes the politically charged texts of a handful of agents.
