DOJ Stonewalls, REFUSES to Provide Congress with Russia-Trump Docs

The Justice Department's internal watchdog is set to release a hotly anticipated report next week that is expected to condemn department leaders and the FBI over the investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign into Hillary Clinton's private email server.

A report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation's internal watchdog into the agency's handling of an enquiry into the management of emails by former USA presidential candidate Hilary Clinton will be released next week, the agency said on Thursday.

Citing unnamed sources, ABC News said the inspector general report, which could be released as soon as this week, said Mr. Comey's behavior was "insubordinate".

U.S. Congressional committees are also now investigating the FBI's handling of the enquiry in 2016.

The president's critics charge that he is trying to undercut the credibility of whatever ultimately results from the work of the office of Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

The agency was concerned that Clinton's use of a non-government computer server may have jeopardized classified information.

The report also is expected to address whether active and retired FBI agents in NY leaked information about investigations of the Clinton Foundation charitable organization and the discovery of a trove of Clinton-related emails shortly before the November 2016 election. He also committed to testifying in front of lawmakers on June 18.

Following that meeting, Lynch took the unusual step to say she would not recuse herself from the case, but would accept the FBI's recommendations in the probe.

Before Comey he did so, at least one senior Justice Department official informed the Federal Bureau of Investigation that publicizing the decision so close to the election would violate longstanding department policy.

"I don't remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she's going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she'll be illegitimate the moment she's elected, the moment this comes out", he said. "Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker!"

The IG was originally scheduled to complete its findings by the end of May.

'What is taking so long with the Inspector General's Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey, ' Trump tweeted.
