The Clinton email report is coming

"We found no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias, or other improper considerations", the report said, according to the source.

Former FBI Director James Comey "deviated" from FBI and Justice Department procedures in handling the probe into Hillary Clinton, damaging the law enforcement agencies' image of impartiality even though he wasn't motivated by political bias, the department's watchdog found in a highly anticipated report.

Five officials were identified in the report, which had some connection to the email probe whose political bias was a "discredit to themselves, sowed doubt about the FBI's handling of the midyear investigation, and impacted the reputation of the FBI".

Comey, in his own response, says the IG report seems fair, but he disagrees with parts of it. They exchanged thousands of text messages, some of which were pointedly anti-Trump.

"One of the most damming pieces of evidence was a never before seen text message from embattled FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok to his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page where he suggests that he will not allow Trump to become president", she adds.

"The OIG report makes clear that we've got some work to do", Wray said.

One example cited in the new report is an email exchange between Strzok and Page on August 8, 2016.

The inspector general's report was originally expected in May, and earlier this month, Trump questioned on Twitter whether its publication had been delayed because the findings were "being changed and made weaker". Comey informed Congress of the new evidence just days before the election.

The report underscores efforts by senior FBI and Justice Department leaders in the final stages of the presidential race to juggle developments in the Clinton investigation - she had used private email for some government business while secretary of state - with a separate probe into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation that was diverting FBI resources and attention.

The second major wave from Comey was the revelation that evidence from an ongoing probe of Anthony Weiner, a disgraced former congressman from NY who resigned from office in 2011 after sending pictures of himself nearly entirely naked to teenagers, had caused him to reopen the investigation into Clinton's potential foul play.

More recently, the President has signaled a hope that the inspector general's report will vindicate his instincts on Comey. "The conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation".

Republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees say they have "substantial questions about whether DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation properly analyzed and interpreted the law surrounding mishandling of classified information".

"What is taking so long with the Inspector General's Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey", Trump tweeted on June 5.

"The FBI should not have spoken publicly about the case after recommending against criminal charges", the two Democratic leaders said.

Clinton and her supporters, on the other hand, have complained that the timing of Comey's announcement that the investigation was being reopened badly hurt her chances to defeat her Republican rival. The servers at hand were not authorized for official government business, but Comey ultimately reasoned that a prosecutor would be out of line to press charges in the matter.
