FBI Prioritized Russia Probe Ahead Of Clinton Probe, According To Inspector General Report


The Department of Justice inspector general released a scathing report showing insubordination and anti-Trump bias within the Obama-era FBI.
The report called former Director James Comey insubordinate, and said FBI agent Peter Strzok prioritized the Russia investigation ahead of the Clinton email investigation.

A text message from Strzok to Lisa Page was also in the report, which suggested the pair would stop Trump from becoming president.
It was revealed the FBI showed preferential treatment to Clinton’s team, obtaining information through consent rather than subpoenas. On top of that, some electronic devices were not investigated in what appears to be an attempt to complete the probe before the election.
The government watchdog report also confirmed the FBI already cleared Clinton before interviewing her.
The president has been briefed on the report.
This comes after Attorney General Jeff Sessions suggested the results could prompt more firings in comments made Wednesday.
