The report is Damning for Comey and Lynch.
Wait till people actually read it.
1. What matters is any criminal referrals to prosecutor Huber.
2. The 3rd section of the I.G. Report will focus on SPYGATE. That will make today's release look like a playground spat.

lol what a crock of BS...
'No evidence FBI aided Clinton'
'There might be evidence the FBI tried to impact the Trump campaign'
FBI : "WE'LL STOP IT"
For all those who struggle with basic math... Trying to stop Trump from getting elected is aiding Clinton.

I know everyone is partisan to one degree or another.
I just hope that this leads to people guilty of crimes, getting punished.
Is it too much to ask for?

The part about not having any evidence of political bias is specifically talking about Comey,
No, it's not. Here's the paragraph before:
In particular, we were concerned about text messages exchanged by FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, Special Counsel to the Deputy Director, that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations. As we describe in Chapter Twelve of our report, most of the text messages raising such questions pertained to the Russia investigation, which was not a part of this review. Nonetheless, the suggestion in certain Russia-related text messages in August 2016 that Strzok might be willing to take official action to impact presidential candidate Trump’s electoral prospects caused us to question the earlier Midyear investigative decisions in which Strzok was involved, and whether he took specific actions in the Midyear investigation based on his political views. As we describe Chapter Five of our report, we found that Strzok was not the sole decisionmaker for any of the specific Midyear investigative decisions we examined in that chapter. We further found evidence that in some instances Strzok and Page advocated for more aggressive
investigative measures in the Midyear investigation such as the use of grand jury subpoenas and search
warrants to obtain evidence.
That's the paragraph immediately preceding what I excerpted. It's clearly not about Comey.
Fast reader you are... and a lawyer too?
Or did you just go by what CNN is reporting right now...
People that are guilty of crimes should be punished.
"We found that it was extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same," Horowitz’s report says.
Did not seek to obtain every device, including those of Clinton’s senior aides, or the contents of every email account through which a classified email may have traversed. We found that the reasons for not doing so were based on limitations the Midyear team imposed on the investigation’s scope, the desire to complete the investigation well before the election, and the belief that the foregone evidence was likely of limited value.
