‘Worse than expected’: IG’s coming report expected to be ‘fairly damning indictment’ of Comey’s FBI

James Gagliano, a law enforcement analyst for CNN, took to Twitter Wednesday to share that sources tell him the soon-to-be released Department of Justice Inspector General report is “worse than expected.” according to his sources.

The retired FBI supervisory special agent added that the report is “a fairly damning indictment of FBI’s seventh floor during the [James] Comey era.”

“Sources with knowledge of the impending DOJ Inspector General Report confirm that it will be a fairly damning indictment of FBI’s seventh floor during the Comey era. “It’s worse than expected,” seems to be the consistent theme …,” Gagliano tweeted.

The seventh floor is where senior officials at the FBI call home, such as fired FBI Director James Comey and his fired deputy director, Andrew McCabe, according to The Washington Times.

Did we mention that Gagliano is a CNN analyst?

Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz released a damning report last month that accused McCabe of “lack of candor” about his authorization of leaks to the media, behavior that the report said “constituted misconduct.”

Horowitz also forwarded  criminal referral for McCabe to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington D.C.

The reaction on social media centered around the question of whether the country will see “equal justice” following the release of the inspector general’s report, though some suggested the FBI may need to do some refurbishing on the 7th floor.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
