Trump takes aim at FBI texts on Twitter

Comey broke FBI procedure in Clinton email probe says inspector general

Former FBI Director James Comey

Sessions spoke at Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

In interviews included in the report, both Strozk and Page acknowledged that some of their texts could be read as showing their bias against Trump, both during the early stages of the collusion investigation and after Trump assumed office in January 2017. Trump instead retweeted a string of Fox & Friends clips featuring Jason Chaffetz, in which the former Republican congressman from Utah claimed the report undermined special counsel Robert Mueller's entire investigation.

"I think that the report yesterday - maybe more importantly than anything - it totally exonerates me".

The inspector general did not find evidence supporting assertions by the president and his allies that political bias inside the Federal Bureau of Investigation had rigged the case to clear Clinton.

Sluggish France Take Opening Win Over Australia
France got their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign off to a winning note by defeating Australia 2-1 at the Kazan Stadium on Saturday. Samuel Umtiti was involved in one of the most freakish moments at the World Cup so far in France's match against Australia.


Trump added: "And there was total bias". He was referring to the deputy attorney general, who oversees the Russian Federation probe, and Sessions, the attorney general, who has recused himself from that investigation.

He also mocked Comey for using a private email address to conduct business on the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of private email to conduct business.

Mueller is looking into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow, among other matters that may arise from the investigation.

It did not find evidence that those views seeped into the investigation.

"Cet entraîneur n'a rien à faire ici" — Ibrahimovic dézingue Deschamps
Ce qui n'est visiblement pas assez pour Zlatan Ibrahimovic qui a donné son avis sur l'absence d'un joueur en particulier. Les Bleus ont pris la tête du groupe C, devant le Danemark, victorieux 1-0 face au Pérou.


Ron Kaufman, a Quincy native who served as policy director in former President George H.W. Bush's White House, noting that President Trump has been heavily criticized for firing Comey, said the report "vindicates the president - Mr. Comey should have been let go". At least among Trump's hardline supporters, the response would inevitably refer back to Clinton and the email controversy.

The inspector general's probe focused on decisions made by Comey, at key moments during the campaign, to go public with the FBI's findings, sidestepping then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

I must remind readers, however, that Trump, upon assuming the presidency, chose to retain Comey rather than relieving him of duty, as many of us thought he should.

"FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account", the report noted.

Eight people injured after taxi hits crowds in Moscow
Russia's Interfax news agency cited a source claiming that the driver was drunk at the time of the incident. The extent of the injuries remains unclear although police say they are no life-threatening.


"The FBI's inaction had potentially far-reaching consequences", the report found, noting there were no persuasive arguments to explain the delay. The IG found the text messages sullied the FBI's reputation and "cast a cloud" over its investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's email but did not affect the investigation itself.
