Former president Barack Obama lied when he claimed he knew nothing about his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, using a private, unsecured email server to conduct top-secret government business.
That’s what the Obama-appointed Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, indicated in his 500-page report, where he found that numerous Obama holdovers in the upper ranks of the FBI were unprofessional and biased in their investigation of Hillary’s email server.
Obama told CBS News in 2015 that he found out about Hillary’s private email server at “same time everybody else learned it — through news reports.” But the IG report shows that Obama had emailed Hillary on her private email server numerous times.

Moreover, the FBI scrubbed Obama’s name from a report detailing its investigation of Hillary’s server to shield Obama’s identity. Otherwise, they would have to admit that not only did Obama know that Hillary had used a private, unsecured email server to conduct classified government business, but he participated in the reckless scheme.
This has caused rampant speculation that the Obama FBI did such a sloppy job “investigating” Clinton’s email server because they didn’t want to implicate then-president Obama.
The Federalist’s Sean Davis noted this sentence from the IG report: “The IG found that Obama was “one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail[.]com account.” Now we know why Clinton was never going to be charged with anything related to her secret e-mail scheme.”
Davis continued: “Obama knew about Hillary’s secret e-mail scheme, because she e-mailed him using her private address “while in the territory of a foreign adversary.” That finding was removed from Comey’s statement exonerating Clinton.”
The National Review’s David French (an avowed Trump hater) agreed with Davis, tweeting:
- “Hillary was unbelievably reckless.
- Scrubbing the reference to Obama was an enormously consequential change.”

Another Twitter user concluded: “Pretty obvious why the FBI beat around the bush with Hillary: Obama White House was implicated.”
Liberal media are gleefully chanting that the Inspector General found “no bias” among the upper levels of the FBI. That’s not what he said.
IG Michael Horowitz said he found no “documentary” evidence suggesting that the partisan bias exhibited by James Comey, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page produced “specific investigatory decisions.”
Keep in mind that the Inspector General is like the human resources department of a corporation: Its job isn’t to find wrongdoing among its own employees; its job is to protect the corporation it works for.
These Twitter reactions should provide some clarity.
1) Don't believe anyone who claims Horowitz didn't find bias. He very carefully says that he found no "documentary" evidence that bias produced "specific investigatory decisions." That's different #IGReport

As a former federal prosecutor, I am astonished and disappointed by the tremendous level of bias and animus revealed in the IG report. My preliminary review leads me to believe that President Trump deserved better than he got from the FBI and DOJ.

Rudy Giuliani says IG report should lead to "disgraceful," Peter Strzok being jailed "by the end of next week," and a shut down of the Mueller probe. pic.twitter.com/ruSlG9rLsY
