DOJ launches internal Clinton emails investigation

The quick hits from the DOJ's Inspector General:

  • Comey under fire: His possible failure to follow FBI procedures regarding both the public announcement not to prosecute Clinton and his letters to Congress about Huma's emails are part of the probe — even more damning: whether his "investigative decisions were based on improper considerations."
  • @FBIRecordsVault not verified: The FBI's FOIA Twitter account springing to life in the midst of the Huma debacle is part of the investigation.
  • "Heads up": Possible leaks to the Clinton camp will be examined, spurred by a leaked email from a DOJ official to Podesta warning him of impending developments during the investigation.
  • Breathe easy, Hillary: "The review will not substitute the OIG's judgment for the judgments made by the FBI or the Department regarding the substantive merits of investigative or prosecutive decisions."
