Multiple sources are now indicating Inspector General Michael Horowitz’ upcoming report will include a bombshell announcement in regards to James Comey.
According to The Federalist Papers, the report will detail how the former FBI Director repeatedly lied to Trump about not targeting him in his probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In addition, and most shocking of all, it appears that Comey also placed his own personal spy in the White House to dig up dirt on Trump.
Sources tell RealClearInvestigations that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will soon file a report with evidence indicating that Comey was misleading the president. Even as he repeatedly assured Trump that he was not a target, the former director was secretly trying to build a conspiracy case against the president, while at times acting as an investigative agent.
Two U.S. officials briefed on the inspector general’s investigation of possible FBI misconduct said Comey was essentially “running a covert operation against” the president, starting with a private “defensive briefing” he gave Trump just weeks before his inauguration.

RCI’s Paul Sperry goes into considerably more detail, so be sure to read all of his report. How much of this actually ends up in Horowitz’ finished version is anyone’s guess. Usually, these reports get passed around to various impacted department heads for feedback and revisions. Sperry notes that the report isn’t expected out until September, which means edits and revisions might still take place.
These tactics are clearly J. Edgar Hoover in nature. [Read More]
