IG Report: FBI & DOJ Broke Law In Clinton Email Investigation – Referred For Criminal Charges


The Department of Justice’s Inspector General has released a report which indicated that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the DOJ both broke the law during the probe into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server.

The report was kept private, but The Wall Street Journal reported:

Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to read it, people familiar with the matter said. They are expected to have a few days to craft a response to any criticism in the report, which will then be incorporated in the final version to be released in coming weeks.

However, Former D.C. bureau chief for Investor’s Business Daily, Hoover Institution media fellow, and author of several books, including bestseller INFILTRATION, Paul Sperry, tweeted out that the IG is turning over a referral to the DOJ for possible criminal charges in the matter.

“IG Horowitz has found “reasonable grounds” for believing there has been a violation of federal criminal law in the FBI/DOJ’s handling of the Clinton investigation/s and has referred his findings of potential criminal misconduct to Huber for possible criminal prosecution,” he tweeted.

Sperry continued, “Comey/Yates targeted Gen. Flynn in C.I. investigation a yr BEFORE he communicated w Russian ambassador in Dec 2016 as a transition official–and the trigger was Flynn sitting at same table w Putin at Dec 2015 Moscow event, even tho Green Party’s Jill Stein also at table.”

“As the IG prepares to release his next report, Sally Yates is suddenly animated & agitated. She is tweet-storming against Trump, giving speeches bashing Trump, and spinning her role in the investigations in the New York Times. Yates appears worried about something ahead of report,” Sperry added.

Tyler Durden goes into detail over at Zero Hedge on recapping what all has taken place and what is expected to take place as a result of the report.  He believes that this is the foundation for appointing a Special Counsel.

He writes:

Once congress has reviewed the OIG report, the House and Senate Judiciary Committees will use it to supplement their investigations, which will result in hearings with the end goal of requesting or demanding a Special Counsel investigation. The DOJ can appoint a Special Counsel at any point, or wait for Congress to demand one. If a request for a Special Counsel is ignored, Congress can pass legislation to force an the appointment.

And while the DOJ could act on the OIG report and investigate / prosecute themselves without a Special Counsel, it is highly unlikely that Congress would stand for that given the subjects of the investigation.

After the report’s completion, the DOJ will weigh in on it. Their comments are key. As TrumpSoldier points out in his analysis, the DOJ can take various actions regarding “Policy, personnel, procedures, and re-opening of investigations. In short, just about everything (Immunity agreements can also be rescinded).

With the wheels set in motion last week seemingly align with Congressional requests and the OIG mandate, and the upcoming OIG report likely to serve as a foundational opinion, the DOJ will finally be empowered to move forward with an impartially appointed Special Counsel.

The question now though is, will we ever see any justice in the matter concerning Hillary Clinton’s crimes?  It’s one thing to deal with criminal activity in the DOJ and the FBI, even though it’s like the fox guarding the henhouse.  It’s another to actually deal with a woman, who we know because of the evidence we’ve seen and the laws we have, who knowingly broke the law.
