President Donald Trump expressed concern about the release date of an impending inspector general report into the FBI’s conduct during the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The report is expected in the coming weeks and reviews the conduct of former FBI director James Comey and other top FBI executives during the Clinton email investigation.

Trump has long-demanded an investigation into the FBI’s conduct and has hammered his attorney general for not opening his own investigation rather than referring matters to the inspector general.

A previous inspector general report on the conduct of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe recommended his termination for lying to the inspector general and leaking classified information without authorization.
