OpEd: Alan Dershowitz says IG should have been much tougher on Comey in report


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:

The report issued Thursday by highly respected Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation shows that FBI Director James Comey deserved to be fired for his actions. But an important question is unanswered: How has the report been changed from Horowitz’s findings as he originally presented them?

The article goes on to state the following:

The rules of the Justice Department provide that anyone criticized in an IG report has the right to suggest factual corrections. That seems fair, and if that is all that was done, there should be no complaints. But if the published draft improperly whitewashed any individuals or scrubbed any valid criticisms, we have a right to know.

The article continues:

As expected, the report was critical of Comey for “deviating” from the policies and traditions of the FBI when he made public announcements during the windup of Clinton’s presidential campaign and gave his opinion regarding her conduct in dealing with emails during the period she served as secretary of state in the Obama administration.

The report characterized Comey as “insubordinate,” but concluded that he was not motivated by any partisan political bias.

Comey’s motivations were worse than partisan. They were personal. He placed his own personal reputation above that of the department and above partisan considerations.
