The Obama Justice Department looks bad in Inspector General’s report

There are now a lot of fingers pointing at the Obama Justice Department and claiming interference in the investigations into the Clinton Foundation. The Inspector General’s report goes specifically into the involvement of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe provided leaks about the DOJ pressure on the FBI to ease up on the Foundation. But there is more to the story.

As Written and Reported By Richard Pollock for the Daily Caller:

  • The Department of Justice Inspector General released a report Friday claiming “lack of candor” by former FBI deputy Director Andrew McCabe

  • The report also details Justice Department’s influence to close a multi-state investigation into the Clinton Foundation

  • The IG claims McCabe leaked DOJ’s pressure to end the Clinton investigation to battle claims he was partial to the Clintons

The Department of Justice Inspector General report on the “lack of candor” by FBI deputy Director Andrew McCabe also documents for the first time the Obama administration’s effort to shut down the bureau’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation, according to a review of the report by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group.

The inspector general (IG) confirmed in its long-awaited report released Friday that in 2016 the FBI had ongoing field investigations of the Clinton Foundation in New York, Los Angeles, Little Rock, Arkansas and Washington, D.C. The multi-city investigation was launched when agents found “suspicious activity” between a foreign donor and Clinton Foundation activity in the Los Angeles area, as TheDCNF reported in August 2016.

The report, authored by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, an Obama appointee, chronicles the Justice Department’s effort to to shut down the FBI’s investigation on Aug. 12, 2016. The pressure allegedly came in the form of a phone call to McCabe from a Justice Department principal associate deputy attorney general (PADAG) who pressed McCabe on the continuing investigation.The IG did not identify which PADAG made the call…..
