The Department of Justice inspector general announced a sweeping review Thursday of Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation actions leading up to the November election - in response to criticism from both sides of the aisle over how the agencies handled the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

Horowitz will try to see if FBI Director James Comey's press conference and letter to Congress before the election about a new probe into Hillary Clinton's emails were appropriate under agency guidelines.

The FBI had no immediate comment on the broad review, though Comey has told friends and employees he had few good choices in the investigation into Clinton's handling of classified information on her private email server.

The Thursday statement from the Justice Department's Inspector General said there will also be an examination of whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should have recused himself from participating in the Clinton e-mail investigation. Just days before the November 8 election, Comey sent a second letter to Congress saying nothing discovered during the examination of the computer caused them to change their original assessment.

Democrats, including Clinton herself, have suggested that the decision to reopen the investigation 11 days before Election Day contributed greatly to her loss. The FBI later said it would not change its conclusion. His public disclosures were sharply criticized by Democrats and former high-ranking Justice Department officials.
