Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz on June 14, 2018, by his investigative report of the DOJ and the FBI conduct in the “Clinton Email” investigation, shocked the nation. His report has established evidence of bribery, collusion, conspiracy, deceit, fraud, incompetency, personal misbehavior, professional misconduct, and just plain wrongdoing by the highest echelon of DOJ personnel and FBI personnel.

These various acts of misconduct were known or should have been known to the highest offices of the Obama administration.

According to IG Horowitz’s report, it appears the highest former government officials of the Obama administration failed to control and supervise rogue conduct of DOJ and FBI personnel. These failures resulted in the serious internal atrophy of Constitutional mandates.

Horowitz’s report of over 500 pages was obviously sanitized by Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Rod Rosenstein under the faux guises of “national security” and “ongoing investigation.” Rosenstein is entangled in the “Russian Collusion” allegation mess dealing with the Trump election campaign. The “Russian Collusion” allegation has been all but proven to have been a Democrat-financed phony political dodge.

In July 2015, the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) composed of 16 government intelligence agencies, such as military intelligence, CIA, FBI, National Security Agency (NSA), etc. were concerned about Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified material. IC and State Department IGs referred to the FBI counterintelligence section concerns about Hillary Clinton’s classified email problems.

The FBI began its investigation of the referral about September 2015 and by November

2015 the FBI went to examine Clinton’s aides and Clinton about compromising national security secrets.

Peter Strzok, Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, was assigned to the Clinton matter. Strzok was also assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “Russian Collusion” team. He interviewed General Michael Flynn, who was indicted for lying to the FBI. (Title 18 USC Section 1001)

However, Mueller released Strzok and FBI agent/lawyer Lisa Page from his team after

Mueller learned of their conduct in the Clinton email investigation. Strzok had significant influence in the manner and direction of the Mueller investigation, even if he was with it for a short time.

On July 5, 2017, FBI Director James Comey (an Obama appointee) announced terminating the Clinton email investigation. Comey stated that Clinton was only “extremely careless” in handling classified documents. Strzok changed the words of Clinton’s conduct from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” to avoid using the criminal statute wording and damage Clinton. This change was apparently approved by several DOJ and FBI officials.

Horowitz report is book length. To summarize a few findings, he notes the following:

Bribery — FBI employees accepted inappropriate gifts from newsmedia reporters for leaking information. The gifts included tickets to sporting events, golf outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to non-public social events.

Collusion — Changing the wording of Comey’s July 5, 2017, speech exonerating Hillary Clinton.

“Collusion” is not a federal crime.

Conspiracy — The emails/texts of Strzok, Page, and 5 unnamed FBI agents/employees demonstrate not only animosity for President Trump, but hatred — including statements they will destruct and destroy President Trump and his administration. Efforts by Strzok, Page, and

Obama appointees to obtain a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) wiretap on Trump campaign personnel — “The Steele Dossier” — was based upon false, fraudulent, and omitted information.

In May 2018, two U.S. District Court Judges have determined Special Prosecutor Robert

Mueller’s investigation appears unbridled and traveled far beyond its authorized duty. One Judge questioned how Mueller’s indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort decade old financial activities related to 2016 alleged Russian election interference.

Deceit — FBI and DOJ officials who knowingly and willfully violated their oaths of office and placed their personal bias and ideology above their sworn duty to be fair and impartial. A fair reading of Horowitz’s report by any lawyer or non-lawyer shows that the misconduct by DOJ and FBI officials was beyond the pale. They lied — the “Steele Dossier” is just one example.

Fraud — The alteration of Comey’s speech of July 5 changing “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.” The knavish representations for the FISA surveillance authorizations — the last request allegedly signed by DAG Rosenstein — have fraudulent foundations.

Incompetency — Mueller’s team's overly aggressive assaults on Paul Manafort is an effort to have Manafort “rat out” President Trump. This indicates there is no case against Trump or the campaign. His team committed a freshman faux pas by outing journalists and European politicians allegedly involved in Manafort’s secret Ukraine lobbying acts.

The list goes on of questionable conduct by the Mueller team. Mueller’s team is dominated by Obama/Clinton/Democrat loyalists. Mueller’s team conduct denotes a “win at all costs” as witnessed by past admonishments issued to his team member by the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mueller’s team and their conduct are an embarrassment to present and former Federal Prosecutors, FBI agents, and DOJ employees.
