Fired FBI Director James Comey faces new scrutiny after a Justice Department watchdog reportedly blasted his handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
President Trump’s June 12 summit with Kim Jong Un is back on because Trump’s cancellation forced the North Korean dictator to ‘beg’ for the meeting, Rudy Giuliani reportedly says.
Comey has since explained that Lynch’s infamous June 2016 Phoenix tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton during the probe, as well as other non-public and unconfirmed intelligence that may have suggested Lynch would short-circuit the investigation, led him to go public with the FBI’s findings that Hillary Clinton had been “Extremely careless.” A source cited by ABC News claimed the report by the DOJ watchdog specifically called Comey “Insubordinate,” with much of the criticism centering on the way he handled the reopening of the Clinton email probe in the days leading up to Election Day in 2016.
