President Trump’s former personal attorney John M. Dowd told Fox News that the Justice Department watchdog’s report on the FBI’s actions in the Clinton email investigation wasn’t nearly tough enough on fired FBI Director James Comey.
In the report released Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz called Comey “insubordinate” and deviating from “well-established department policies.”
Dowd told Fox News in an email, “The clear evidence of his usurpation of power, violation of his oath of office and material false statements to the public and the Congress all to conceal his own misconduct warranted a criminal referral of Comey’s conduct. The finding of no bias was ludicrous. The OIG findings support the President’s decision to fire Comey.”
