FBI Director Christopher Wray said Monday that the bureau is implementing more than 40 “corrective steps” in response to a Department of Justice inspector general report on the investigation into the Trump campaign and 2016 election interference.
The report found the FBI’s decision to launch and carry out the investigation targeting four Trump campaign officials was not affected by political bias, a conclusion Wray highlighted while also noting the bureau fully cooperated with the nearly two-year internal review by Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
The report was, however, critical of certain aspects of the FBI’s handling of the investigation
“Accordingly, the FBI accepts the Report’s findings and embraces the need for thoughtful, meaningful remedial action,” Wray said in a response included in the nearly 500-page report.
“Because our credibility and brand are central to fulfilling our mission, we are also making improvements beyond those recommended by the OIG,” Wray added.
