Bzzzz, wrong - this ain't in the public domain yet, it's my take on things but it will (hopefully) be more public after today as I've sent a message to Mike Cernovich and Stefan Molyneux to address it more vigorously.
Just out of curiosity, has infowars ever published a lead that you have sent them?
If so that's pretty cool, especially because you're not American.

Ok I found an actual news link about this.
And umm guys...this review was under the Obama administration.
Not a review ordered by trump or his admin.
And it was an internal review on how he handled his "she's not guilty but I'm going to publicly indict her anyway" speech.
The Justice Department inspector general will review broad allegations of misconduct involving FBI Director James B. Comey and how he handled the probe of Hillary Clinton’s email practices , the inspector general announced Thursday.
The investigation will be wide-ranging, encompassing Comey’s various letters and public statements on the matter and whether FBI or other Justice Department employees leaked nonpublic information, according to Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.
Horowitz said Thursday that he will explore the circumstances surrounding the actions of Comey and others
Horowitz wrote that his inquiry will extend back to at least July — when Comey announced he was recommending the Clinton case be closed without charges.
He wrote that he will explore “allegations that Department and FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public information” — potentially a reference to Giuliani, who seemed to claim at one point he had insider FBI knowledge. Horowitz also said he would explore whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should have been recused from the case. McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe, ran for a Virginia Senate seat and took money from the political action committee of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a fierce Clinton ally.
Notably absent from the list of matters being considered is Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch’s controversial meeting in June with former president Clinton aboard her plane on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport.

Interesting. So this started before Tump took office. Wasn't a directive from him. Wonder if it will come up in the hearing/

OIG does go after whistleblowers but only under certain circumstances. Every agency has established channels through which you're supposed to report improper or illegal activity in your agency. The Inspector General of your agency is actually one of those channels. That's whistleblowing. Just taking it to the press and exposing a bunch of classified info on your own accord is not whistleblowing and it's not protected under the law. If you reported it to the OIG, they investigate it, determine if a crime is indeed happening, and if it is they will report that to the appropriate level, such as the agency head or to a congressional committee. They do so in a manner that protects classified information, and sometimes certain elements are made known to the public, sometimes they're not. That's up to the agency or the committee to decide. It's not up to the individual who discovered the improper activity to decide what the public needs or doesn't need to know, ala a Bradley Manning or Edward Snowden.
