A newly released memorandum from the retiring Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) on today's highly anticipated Inspector General Report from the Office of the Inspector General via Michael Horowitz suggests that both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice dropped the ball in charging Hillary Clinton with violations of the Espionage Act.
Trey Gowdy is also the Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, where he's already reviewed the Inspector General Report before making the following statements on his website today.
Representative Gowdy on Hillary Clinton:
<blockquote>“I am alarmed, angered, and deeply disappointed by the Inspector General’s finding of numerous failures by DOJ and FBI in investigating potential Espionage Act violations by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.</blockquote>
Representative Gowdy on the FBI Cover-Up:
<blockquote>“This report confirms investigative decisions made by the FBI during the pendency of this investigation was unprecedented and deviated from traditional investigative procedures in favor of a much more permissive and voluntary approach. This is not the way normal investigations are run.”</blockquote>
Representative Gowdy on FBI Mishandling of the Clinton Investigation:
<blockquote>“The investigation was mishandled. The investigatory conclusions were reached before the end of the witness interviews. The July 5th press conference marked a serious violation of policy and process. And the letters to Congress in the fall of 2016 were both delayed in substance and unnecessary in form.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>“Moreover, the treatment afforded to former Secretary Clinton and other potential subjects and targets was starkly different from the FBI’s investigation into Trump campaign officials. Voluntariness and consent in the former were replaced with search warrants, subpoenas, and other compulsory processes in the latter. Many of the investigators and supervisors were the same in both investigations, but the investigatory tactics were not.”</blockquote>
Representative Gowdy on James Comey:
<blockquote>“Former Director Comey violated Department policy in several significant ways. The FBI’s actions and those of former Director Comey severely damaged the credibility of the investigation, the public’s ability to rely on the results of the investigation, and the very institutions he claims to revere.”</blockquote>
Representative Gowdy on FBI Bias:
<blockquote>The report also conclusively shows an alarming and destructive level of animus displayed by top officials at the FBI. Peter Strzok’s manifest bias trending toward animus casts a pall on this investigation. Bias is so pernicious and malignant as to both taint the process, the result, and the ability to have confidence in either.”</blockquote>
Representative Gowdy on overall failure of both FBI and DOJ:
<blockquote>”The law enforcement community has no greater ally in Congress than me. But continued revelations of questionable decision making by FBI and DOJ leadership destroys confidence in the impartiality of the institutions I have long served, respected, and believed in.”</blockquote>
Representative Gowdy on the damage done by the FBI to its integrity.
<blockquote>”This is not the FBI I know. This is not the FBI our country needs. This is not the FBI citizens and suspects alike deserve.</blockquote>
Representative Gowdy on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and new FBI Director Christopher Wray’s role to attempt to restore America's faith in federal law enforcement agencies:
<blockquote>“It is now urgently incumbent on Attorney General Sessions and Director Wray to take decisive action to restore Americans’ confidence in our justice system.”<blockquote>
All of the statements from Trey Gowdy today are bombshells, and come after he's reviewed the Inspector General report.
Simply stating that Hillary Clinton violated` the Espionage Act is brutal enough as is, not to mention that today we saw Peter Strzok emails released proving the witch hunt against the 45th President of the United States of America was indeed premeditated.

This is enormous. The plot thickens. The Inspector General Report will be out any moment.
