WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, released the following statement after the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General released a report detailing the FBI’s actions prior to the 2016 election including the handling of the investigation into classified information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server.

“The Inspector General report shows real problems within the FBI and Justice Department.  While some questions have been answered, many new questions have been raised. It is virtually impossible to have conclusive, irrefutable evidence that bias led to Director Comey’s exoneration of Hillary Clinton. The report shows, however, violations of FBI and DOJ policy, serious lapses in judgment, and questionable contacts with news reporters. I’d like to thank Inspector General Horowitz for a thorough investigation conducted with integrity, and look forward to his testimony before my committee on June 27th.”
