Comey used personal email to conduct FBI business

Clinton supporters were quick to point out the the report did not cast any doubt on the email investigation's conclusion.

Perhaps the most damaging part of the report is the finding that several FBI employees who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages, raising questions about their objectivity. There was no collusion.

The report said that there was no evidence that either ever acted on their sentiments, but assailed both for "extremely poor judgment and a gross lack of professionalism".

When Trump fired Comey last May, the handling of the Clinton investigation was cited as reason.

It did conclude that former FBI director James Comey made a series of mistakes, including a "serious error of judgement" in announcing the reopening of the Clinton investigation less than two weeks before Election Day in 2016. The president said actions disclosed in the report were "a real insult" to voters in the 2016 election.

Trump fired Comey previous year.

The 500-page report criticized Comey for breaking with long-standing policy and publicly discussing - in a news conference and a pair of letters in the middle of the campaign - an investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server in handling classified information. "It highlights really indefensible texts from Strzok and to his, the woman he's having an affair with, his fellow agent Page", Avlon continued.

"Under these circumstances, we did not have confidence that Strzok's decisions to prioritize the Russian Federation investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigation lead discovered on the Weiner laptop was free from bias".

But a almost two-year investigation by the Justice Department's watchdog found no evidence that those private sentiments expressed by Strzok actually influenced his work.

Comey came in for harsh criticism for his actions in the run up to the election.

The White House immediately seized upon that aspect of the report, saying it "reaffirms the President's suspicions about Mr Comey's conduct and the political bias among some of the members of the FBI".

For those who don't think it's bad since they didn't "do anything", he urged his audience to imagine what I would be like if this happened during Obama's term. Comey, however, managed to infuriate Democrats and Republicans with his actions-the former by announcing in the final weeks of the campaign that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into new information related to the email server, and the latter for subsequently concluding that she didn't break the law.
