STOP Trump! Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, in a comprehensive and at-times scathing report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, exposed extraordinary text messages by a top FBI official vowing to "stop" Donald Trump - while calling then-director James Comey's actions in the case "insubordinate."

Hillary Clinton Mocks James Comey in Response to Justice Department's Inspector General Report

8 monthes ago   |   By

When it comes to the topic of James Comey, Hillary Clinton seems to have few words. But those words can carry a bite.
On Thursday, the Justice Department's inspector general released a lengthy report that rebuked former FBI Director James Comey for deviating from departmental procedures during his probe into Clinton's use of a private server for emails. One bit of irony unearthed by the report was that FBI officials, notably Comey himself, used a personal email account to conduct bureau business.
Clinton responded to that news with a terse, three-word tweet that referenced a Twitter meme...

James Comey came to the FBI five years ago with a reputation almost as towering as his 6-foot-8 frame. He had famously stood up to the White House over an illegal surveillance operation after 9/11, and he promised to lead the FBI into a new era after he was confirmed as director by a resounding 93-1 vote in the Senate.
On his desk in the director's suite, he kept an old wiretapping order signed by J. Edgar Hoover, his notorious predecessor, to spy on Martin Luther King Jr. - a symbol of the dark days at the FBI that Comey wanted to leave behind.
On Thursday, Comey faced a dark day of his...
