Michael Horowitz (DOJ)

In Jan, 2017 Horowitz investigated “allegations of misconduct” regarding FBI Director James B. Comey’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices and whether Justice Department employees leaked classified information during the run-up to the 2016 United States presidential election. The IG report was critical but no one was charged with a crime.

Report released Dec 9, 2019, identifying wrong doing, but no “documentary or testimonial” political bias.
