FBI Director Christopher Wray said Thursday that the bureau has begun taking steps to address the “errors of judgment” identified in the inspector general’s new report.
The report details a range of failures on the part of the FBI in investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Wray said training will focus on the problems it raised. Specifically, he said employees will be “accountable for any misconduct,” educated about the report’s findings, and drilled on proper procedures.
He said the bureau has already targeted some of the employees whose conduct was in the report.
“First, we’re going to hold employees accountable for any potential misconduct,” Wray said. “We’ve already referred conduct highlighted in the report to our disciplinary arm, OPR, which is the FBI’s independent Office of Professional Responsibility.”
“We’re going to adhere to the appropriate disciplinary process and once that process is complete we won’t hesitate to hold people accountable for their actions,” he added.
