NYT Report Claims Upcoming IG Report Leaves Comey and Strzok Largely Unscathed

A new NY Times report based on anonymous sources detailing information about the upcoming IG report scheduled to be released on December 9th claims that while overall incompetence is exposed, Comey and Strzok are largely vindicated of acting with bias against Trump.

Per the NYTimes

In particular, while Mr. Horowitz criticizes F.B.I. leadership for its handling of the highly fraught Russia investigation in some ways, he made no finding of politically biased actions by top officials Mr. Trump has vilified like the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey; Andrew G. McCabe, the former deputy who temporarily ran the bureau after the president fired Mr. Comey in 2017; and Peter Strzok, a former top counterintelligence agent.

The early accounts of the report suggest that it is likely to stoke the debate over the investigation without definitively resolving it, by offering both sides different conclusions they can point to as vindication for their rival worldviews.

This morning, President Trump called in to Fox and Friends where he had a comprehensive discussion on the upcoming FISA report and the impeachment hearings.

Trump promised a “Historic” FISA report exposing “the biggest scandal in the history of our country.”

“So, you have a FISA report coming out, which the word is, it’s historic. That’s what the word is That’s what I hear,” said Trump.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News Wednesday that the report is set to be released on Dec. 9.

“Now, what you’re going to see, I predict, will be perhaps the biggest scandal in the history of our country,” the president continued, noting that he is letting Attorney General William Barr “handle it.”

“And, if it’s historic, you’re going to see something. And then, perhaps even more importantly, you have [John Durham’s report] coming out shortly thereafter — the U.S. attorney — and he’s already announced it’s criminal,” he added.

“I’ll tell you what, you have a lot of very bad people,” Trump concluded, repeatedly accusing top-level Obama administration officials of authorizing “spying” on his 2016 campaign.
