Trump blasts Comey and his 'minions' following inspector general's report

President Trump called the Justice Department inspector general's report a "total disaster" for former FBI Director James Comey, his "minions," and "the FBI." The report, which looks into the bureau's handling of the probe into Hillary Clinton's emails in 2016, said Comey's decisions were sometimes "extraordinary and insubordinate" but not ultimately the result of political bias.

"I did a great service to the people in firing him," Trump went on. "Good Instincts." Trump's FBI director, Christopher Wray, also reacted to the report, ABC News reports, emphasizing the importance of noting "what the inspector general did not find."
