Report: IG refers FBI, Justice officials for criminal prosecution


State Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has found “reasonable grounds” for believing the FBI and the Justice Department violated federal criminal law in their handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, according to investigative reporter Paul Sperry.

Horowitz, who informed members of Congress Wednesday that his draft report has been completed, has referred his findings to John W. Huber, the U.S. attorney in Utah, for possible criminal prosecution, Sperry said.

Huber was appointed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March to work with Horowitz to investigate the accusations of FBI misconduct.
