1 month 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.

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

1 month 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.
