The Justice Department inspector general on Thursday announced that it will launch an investigation into the FBI’s conduct leading up to the 2016 election.
The probe, which comes in response to requests from numerous chairmen and ranking members of congressional oversight committees, will look into allegations that Director James Comey broke bureau policy with his various public disclosures regarding the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Clinton’s campaign has blamed Comey and the FBI for her loss to Donald Trump. The IG will also examine allegations that “certain underlying investigative decisions were based on improper considerations.”
