A new ABC report indicates that a draft DOJ internal report states that James Comey overstepped his authority as former FBI director.

It also states that Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s handling of the Clinton email case was rebuked by Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

ABC News writes:

“The Justice Department’s internal watchdog has concluded that James Comey defied authority at times during his tenure as FBI director, according to sources familiar with a draft report on the matter.”

ABC also explains that according to one source, the draft report said Comey was “insubordinate.”


The other bombshell in the report contains criticism of Loretta Lynch for the way in which she handled the Clinton email case: “Inspector General Michael Horowitz also rebuked former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for her handling of the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s personal email server, the sources said.”

It’s unclear exactly what criticism of Lynch is contained in the DOJ’s draft report.
