What about the inspector general?

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report.

"We did not look into collusion questions", Horowitz said in explaining how his report doesn't address Trump's culpability.

Horowitz confirmed Monday that his office is also now looking into Comey's disclosure of memos he wrote about interactions he had with Trump. "We'll issue a report when the matter is complete".

"No he won't. We'll stop it", Strzok replied.

"Documents provided to the Committees show foreign actors obtained access to some of Mrs. Clinton's emails - including at least one email classified 'Secret, '" the memo says.

We also found that in key moments, then-FBI Director Comey clearly departed from FBI and department norms, and his decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the Justice Department as fair administrators of justice. "'Grossly negligent" is a legal term that would make you subject to ten years in prison for grossly negligently handling classified information...

Reminded by Leahy that as FBI director, Comey testified publicly that the agency in fact was conducting an internal investigation into leaks to Giuliani, Wray responded: "There are a number of things that I probably would have done differently". "The Media Policy in effect both at the time of these events and now authorizes only four employees at FBI Headquarters to speak directly to the media without prior authorization", the report observes. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.

More importantly than anything, it totally exonerates me.

Referring to the Russian Federation investigation, Giuliani said "when it's over", Trump would retain his pardon power and could issue pardons as he sees fit. "The conduct, the character the principle that I see in those people every day is extraordinary and would be an inspiration to the members of the committee".

"Are you investigating Comey's handling of his memos and does that include the classification issues", Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley asked.

The investigation also looked at whether McCabe should have recused himself from the Clinton case since his wife received campaign contributions from the political action committee of then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally, in her failed state Senate run.

The senator also suggested that the FBI's decision to have two agents and two prosecutors in the room when Clinton was interviewed also appeared to be a political decision.

"Director Wray, I have to say that I was disappointed by your response last week to the inspector general's report", said Sen.

Wray, a Trump appointee, also stood by Mueller's work. A stoic Christopher Wray put his stamp on the report, touting the sections that clear the Federal Bureau of Investigation of systemic bias and promising accountability for agents found to have broken the rules.

Republicans seized on the messages to push Horowitz on whether bias actually did affect the Clinton email investigation.

The hearing Monday seemed to foreshadow that his time in the spotlight is not done.

Horowitz did confirm to Grassley there was an open investigation into how Comey handled the memos he wrote memorializing his conversations with Trump before he was sacked past year.

"No rule, policy or practice is flawless, of course", Horowitz said.

FBI Director Chris Wray and Inspector General Michael Horowitz are the two witnesses.

Grassley said he invited Comey to testify at the hearing today as well, but his lawyer said he was out of the country - a statement Grassley questions after a tweet from Comey on June 16 showing him in Iowa.

"Peter Strzok should not have a job anywhere near our Justice Department", said North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, a Republican who is close to Trump, after a briefing on the report.
