The long-awaited Department of Justice Inspector General report on the handling of the Clinton email investigation by the Justice Department and FBI has been released.

The report, roughly 500 pages long, focuses on former FBI chief James Comey and the decisions he made during the course of the Clinton investigation, CBS News’ Paula Reid reports. It describes Comey as "insubordinate" while also criticizing then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for weak leadership.

Conservative Republicans in particular have been calling for the report to be released, and President Trump has long blasted the Justice Department and FBI, demanding answers and information.

"What is taking so long with the Inspector General’s Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey," Mr. Trump tweeted earlier this month. "Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker! There are so many horrible things to tell, the public has the right to know."
