IG Report Rips into James Comey
The contents of the Justice Department’s inspector general have been the main focus in US politics since they were released on Thursday.
While Democrats and the GOP may debate the finer points of the explosive document, one thing is for certain: the report didn’t pull any punches when it comes to its evaluation of former FBI director James Comey and how he handled the investigation into both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
The report called Mr. Comey “insubordinate” and described the breakdown of the chain of command in the FBI under Comey as “extraordinary”. It outlined details of five different FBI agents who exchanged anti-Trump and pro-Hillary text messages all while working on the investigation into both candidates and leveled the blame at Comey for allowing such bias and partisan behavior to continue unaddressed under his watch.
The result, according to the inspector general, was that Comey’s actions undermined trust in the FBI and created a divide in the United States that we are still feeling the effects of to this day. All told, the report no doubt comes as a major blow to the ego of James Comey, who has relentlessly defended his actions even as the evidence of how poor his leadership was continued to mount.
