Trump says Federal Bureau of Investigation was 'plotting against' me

GOP lawmakers demand drafts of DOJ report on Clinton email investigation

DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz noted in his final report that his investigators asked FBI agents assigned to the Clinton case - known as "MidYear" - why they did not seize the devices given they may have been used to store classified emails.

After leading the email investigation, Strzok became a top official on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Trump or his associates colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

President Trump is right: It looks awful that an FBI agent involved in both the Hillary Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations privately texted this to someone: "We'll stop" [Trump from becoming president]. It noted that Mr. Strzok, in a text message, had vowed to stop Donald J. Trump from winning the presidential election.

In one August 2016 exchange between the lovers, Page asked Strzok if it was possible that Trump would become president.

The final report, released Thursday, clearly states that "we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed".

Mr. Giuliani maintained the report showed President Trump's firing of Mr. Comey was warranted and was not obstruction of justice by the President.

Democrats said the inspector general's report provided no grounds to undermine Mueller's continuing investigation.

In September 2016, as part of the investigation into his communication with the underage teen, an FBI agent in NY found hundreds of thousands of emails on Weiner's laptop that were possibly relevant to the Clinton investigation.

The report also ironically revealed that Comey used his own personal email account to conduct government business from time to time, but there was no indication that any classified information was transferred using his personal email.

But the 568-page report did no such thing.

While polls have shown a majority of Americans believe Trump should cooperate with the investigation, recent polling suggests an increasing number of people have begun to view the investigation as politically motivated.

Trump's lawyers have been in negotiations with Mueller's team since the end of previous year over terms of an interview. Comey, however, managed to infuriate Democrats and Republicans with his actions-the former by announcing in the final weeks of the campaign that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into new information related to the email server, and the latter for subsequently concluding that she didn't break the law.
