The DOJ and the FBI are deliberately trying to slow and censor the release of a damaging report on the Hillary Clinton email probe. The DOJ’s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, completed a 400-page report on the FBI’s handling of the case several weeks ago. The DOJ and FBI are currently reviewing the document. The report will supposedly show that the investigation was completely bungled by fired former FBI Director James Comey. But there is a real effort to water down the report and for those mentioned in the report to cover themselves.
Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) recently said that “It’s been almost a year and a half and it is time that Congress receives the IG report. This has gone on long enough and the American people’s patience is wearing thin. We need accountability.”
Sara Carter reports:
Another congressional official, who’s been fighting to obtain documents from the DOJ and FBI, said it is no surprise that they are putting pressure on Horowitz. According to the official, “They continue to slow roll documents, fail to adhere to congressional oversight and concern is growing that they will wait until summer and then turn over documents that are heavily redacted.”
Former FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe is also expected to come under fire in Horowitz’s latest Clinton report. In April, McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the inspector general released a scathing report and a criminal referral for lying under oath.
The IG report is expected to reveal Comey’s handling of the bureau’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server. He faced enormous scrutiny from both Democrats and Republicans for his handling of the case during the election and his decision to hold a press conference in July 2016 to not bring charges against her.
In a turn of events, Democrats later changed their position on Comey after President Trump fired him at the request of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who stated that he failed in leading the investigation into Clinton.
Even President Trump is openly questioning why this report is taking to long to come to light:
What is taking so long with the Inspector General’s Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey. 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. Transparency!
