FBI report says anti-Trump texts 'cast a cloud' over probe

11 monthes ago   |   By

WASHINGTON - As the FBI investigated both candidates running for president in 2016, two FBI employees exchanged thousands of personal texts and messages that included a running political commentary - including newly released messages in which one of them expressed a desire to "stop" the election of Donald Trump.
In a highly anticipated report released Thursday, the Justice Department's internal watchdog said those messages sullied the FBI's reputation and "cast a cloud" over its investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's emails, even if they did not affect the investigation itself.

Watchdog report blasts FBI but doesn't hand Trump total win

11 monthes ago   |   By

WASHINGTON - An inspector general report condemning the FBI's actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation blasts former FBI Director James Comey but also denies total vindication to the president who fired him.
