Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz testifies on Capitol Hill on June 18, 2018. Though the report largely exonerated FBI officials of the president’s most inflammatory accusations, Trump’s persistent attacks have nonetheless already damaged the bureau’s reputation. Members told the inspector general that no investigative steps were taken before the actual opening of the investigation in late July 2016. The inspector general also noted that the FBI apparently requested information from another agency but that portion remains blacked out. The inspector general criticized Ohr for failing to keep his supervisors informed of his actions, but does not accuse him of being part of a conspiracy.
