House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) was furious after reading the findings of a lengthy report put together by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) after the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton Email Probe.

Gowdy, who’s had the chance to look at the report before it’s released to the public, said in a statement that he is “alarmed, angered, and deeply disappointed” by “numerous failures by DOJ and FBI” in investigating potential Espionage Act violations by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

He said the report confirms the FBI made “unprecedented” invesitgative decisions and “deviated from traditional investigative procedures in favor of a much more permissive and voluntary approach.”

He said the investigation was “mishandled,” called Comey’s July 2016 press conference announcing that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring charges against Clinton a “serious violation of policy and process,” and that Comey’s late Oct./early Nov. 2016 letters to Congress were “delayed in substance and unnecessary in form.”

Comey sent a letter on Oct. 28 announcing that the FBI would look deeper into the Clinton Probe when new emails were discovered on Anthony Wiener‘s laptop. On Nov. 6, two days before the election, Comey once again cleared Clinton.

Gowdy also said it showed different treatment of Clinton and Trump campaign officials.

Gowdy took heat recently for defending the FBI after news of their informant emerged. Maybe this is his way of making amends.
