Former FBI Director James Comey has responded to the DOJ Inspector General’s report which concluded that he was “insubordinate,” used personal email for official business, and “deviated” from FBI norms.

Highlights:

“the inspector general’s team went through the F.B.I.’s work with a microscope and found no evidence that bias or improper motivation affected the investigation”

“But even in hindsight I think we chose the course most consistent with institutional values.”

“The report also resoundingly demonstrates that there was no prosecutable case against Mrs. Clinton”

“We knew that reasonable people might choose to do things differently and that a future independent reviewer might not see things the way we did.”

“I never imagined the F.B.I. would face a choice in late October 2016 either to tell Congress we had restarted the email investigation in a significant way or to conceal that fact.”

Comey’s carefully crafted response to the report can be read below via the New York Times:

James Comey: This Report Says I Was Wrong. But That’s Good for the F.B.I.

The Department of Justice’s independent watchdog, the inspector general, has released a report that is critical of my decisions as F.B.I. director during the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email account. The report concludes that I was wrong to announce the F.B.I.’s completion of the investigation without coordinating with the attorney general and that I was wrong to inform Congress in late October that we had reopened the investigation.

In both situations, the inspector general’s team concludes, I should have adhered to established norms, which they see as mandating both deference to the attorney general on the public announcement and silence about an investigation so close to an election.
