Trump said Friday, as he has before, that the Mueller probe, too, "has been totally discredited".
His claim to have been vindicated is not true.
The report may give rise to the debate over the extent to which Comey's actions secured Trump's victory. "And if you read the report, you'll see that". Wray said the report merely found "errors in judgment".
We knew that Strzok, an FBI agent who was involved in both the Clinton investigation and the FBI probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, had engaged in an extramarital affair with an FBI lawyer named Lisa Page. And while Mueller has charged 20 people and three companies, he's been silent on both points. They were plotting against my election. Noah joked. "So the report ruled that the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents showed a willingness to stop Trump, but they didn't actually do something?"
"The IG Report totally destroys James Comey and all of his minions including the great lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who started the disgraceful Witch Hunt against so many innocent people", Trump tweeted Saturday morning, adding, "It will go down as a dark and unsafe period in American History!" "We'll stop it", Mr Strzok responded.

The other half of the residents in a more vulnerable area are allowed back during the day if conditions are safe. A small explosion occurred at the summit of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii, officials said Sunday morning.
The report found no "documentary or testimonial evidence" that the lovebirds' political bias had directly affected their work, but conceded that "the conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation". He specifically called out Comey, whom he fired in May 2017. Trump added that he feels "badly for some people, because they've gone back 12 years to find things about somebody. What he did was so bad in terms of our Constitution, in terms of the well-being of our country".
The report chided [then-Attorney General Loretta E.] Lynch for indecision after meeting with former president Bill Clinton on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport in the late stages of the campaign. KSTP questioned him about the report, but he declined to comment. It also concluded that Comey's actions were not motivated by political bias.
TRUMP: "We have 13 angry Democrats. It might overcompensate, right? once they're anxious about that perception you're halfway there to make them bend over backwards for you and in this case break policy for you to make sure they definitely don't help the Democrats and they thereby help the Republicans instead". But the special counsel is a Republican and some others on his team owe their jobs largely to Republican presidents. This conclusion is similar to a memo Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote.
"I can remember like it was yesterday where I was and what I was doing when I learned of these text messages", he told CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin.
