CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge has continued digging through IG Michael Horowitz’ report and finding even less reason for James Comey to claim it vindicated him.

The CBS News senior investigative correspondent posted a series of tweets about her observations on the Department of Justice inspector general’s report on the FBI’s Russia investigation, making it clear that Comey and others were far from vindicated as he had claimed.

The former FBI director took a premature victory lap with the release of the report and later attempted to downplay his role in the investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign.

“So it was all lies. No treason. No spying on the campaign. No tapping Trumps wires. It was just good people trying to protect America,” he tweeted.

And in testimony before the House Judiciary Committee last year, Comey expressed his “total confidence” in the bureau’s agents that the FISA process was followed. But last week he admitted he was wrong while still claiming the report’s damning finding of errors and omissions were just due to “sloppiness.”

Herridge continued to pour through Horowitz’s report and noted even more eyebrow-raising observations.

“The more you read, the more you find,” Herridge noted in one tweet with images of the highlighted report and her notes.

Comey’s assertions to President Trump about the FBI not investigation the allegations in the Steele dossier seem to be refuted by the IG’s report.

Apparently Comey either thought no one would actually be reading the report from Horowitz or perhaps he did not even read it himself, as some Twitter users surmised.
