THREAD: Far from supporting Trump’s claim that election was “rigged” in favor of Clinton, DOJ's #IGReport found:

👉🏼No bias in the decision not to prosecute Clinton for using private email
👉🏼Comey was "insubordinate" w/his acts that HURT Clinton

The DOJ IG did also cite then-head of FBI counterintelligence, Peter Stzrok, and FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, for exchanging anti-Trump texts and other messages, but found NO evidence that their political views impacted the investigation.🤔 2/
Although the FBI and DOJ were in the unprecedented situation of investigating BOTH candidates **during** the election cycle (which no surprise, appears to have affected some actions by individuals), importantly, the outcome of the Clinton email probe was NOT affected.🤓 3/
Don't let the Trump spin fool you! The MOST important conclusion of the #IGReport was NOT what was found, but instead, what was NOT found.🤨

Namely, NOTHING was found to support Trump's BOGUS claims that the election was “rigged” in favor of Clinton.🙄 4/
🔥Not only did the #IGReport found NO evidence of bias in the decision NOT to prosecute Clinton, the report found that that former FBI director, Jim @Comey, was “insubordinate” for some of his actions that HURT then-candidate Clinton‼️ 5/
Specifically, the #IGReport found “no evidence that the conclusions by department prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations." FBI & DOJ were appropriate w/the decision not to prosecute Clinton, based on “facts, the law, and past department practice.”😎 6/
#IGReport faulted Comey for his “insubordinate” behavior that seriously DAMAGED Clinton’s campaign, including withholding plans from his superiors for his Jul'16 news conference, as well as his infamous Oct'16 letter revealing the reopening of the Clinton investigation.🤨 7/
#IGReport criticized FBI’s slow handling of the emails found on Anthony Weiner's laptop👉🏼faulted FBI’s NY field office & former FBI counterintel chief, Peter Strzok, for delaying the investigation nearly the ENTIRE month of October.🤬 8/
We now know that FBI’s NY field office already had LEAKED the info of Weiner’s laptop to a far-right website by the time of Comey’s letter. Comey justified his letter b/c he feared that the website's story would damage the FBI’s credibility, plus he assumed Clinton would win.🤨9/
#IGReport cited Stzrok & Lisa Page for sharing anti-Trump messages in Aug16:

Page: Trump's “not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
Stzrok: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

The #IGReport found NO evidence that their views affected any investigative decisions‼️10/
What if Stzrok & Page knew of damning evidence showing a #conspiracy btwn Team🇷🇺Trump & #Russia when they wrote their messages in Aug16? What if they both believed then that Trump was an agent of Russia and/or #China, as he has demonstrated repeatedly while in the WH⁉️ 11/
I still don't believe that this excuses their messages, given their then-active role on the #TrumpRussia🇷🇺probe. 12/

Despite the spin by Trump & cronies in an attempt to discredit anyone/anything related to the #TrumpRussia🇷🇺probe, the #IGReport actually blows up Team Trump’s seditious #conspiracy theory that the “deep state” “rigged” the election for Trump‼️

PS: the “far-right website” to which **FBI’s NY field office leaked** info about the Clinton emails on Weiner’s laptop was Gateway Pundit, tying in Erik Prince and Rudy Guiliani, who also knew in advance‼️


PPS: **for Clinton.
