State Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has found “reasonable grounds” for believing the FBI and the Justice Department violated federal criminal law in their handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, according to investigative reporter Paul Sperry.
Horowitz, who informed members of Congress Wednesday that his draft report has been completed, has referred his findings to John W. Huber, the U.S. attorney in Utah, for possible criminal prosecution, Sperry said . . .
He also said the report found former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates targeted Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who briefly served as Trump’s national security adviser, in a counter-intelligence investigation one year before Flynn communicated with the Russian ambassador in December 2016 as a Trump transition official.
The trigger, Sperry said, was Flynn sitting at the same table with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a December 2015 event in Moscow . . .
