Thin layer of whitewash

The Inspector General's report is out, and the facts as spelled out in the document do not support some of the conclusions - the most notorious conclusion being no evidence of political bias on the part of Comey et al. Nonetheless, the facts, in and of themselves, are pretty damning and underscore the need for a thorough reform of the FBI.

Update: Veeshir, in the comments -
My solution still stands. Fire everybody above GS-9 in the Dept. of "Justice" and replace them with Judicial Watch employees. Use Freepers to fill out the numbers if necessary.

Update II: More from Powerline's John Hinderaker. Money quote:
A common theme of the FBI employees’ responses to the IG’s questions is that, yes, they certainly were Hillary Clinton partisans; and yes, they absolutely detested Donald Trump; and, too, they thought Trump voters were beneath contempt and Trump’s election would threaten the survival of the republic. But those were only their private political views, and didn’t affect the judgments they made while investigating Hillary’s obviously illegal server on the one hand, and the Trump campaign’s nonexistent alliance with Russia on the other. Right.

No one can read the vicious, hateful, over-the-top partisan vitriol that FBI employees directed against Donald Trump–Strzok and Page are not the only ones quoted in the IG’s report–and give any credence to that claim. These high-ranking FBI agents were politicized to the core and were determined to do anything they could to secure their candidate’s election. Failing that, they plunged into the faux Russia election story in hopes of discrediting President Trump or even, as they explicitly discussed, bringing about his impeachment.

Yes, but we can take some comfort in the fact that they are all stupid as hell.
