DOJ Watchdog Finds Comey Engaged in 'Insubordinate' Behavior During Clinton Email Probe: Report
ABC News reports that sources confirm the Justice Department's internal watchdog will release a report concluding that fired FBI director James Comey engaged in "insubordinate" behavior during the 2016 election cycle.
According to ABC,
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.
Hillary Clinton has repeatedly cited Comey's unorthodox letter to Congress as a major factor in the election of President Donald Trump.
The conclusions of the watchdog are at odds with answers Comey gave during an April interview with George Stephanopoulos. At the time, Comey said he would not defy an order from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and that he "believe[s] in the chain of command."
