Investigative journalist, Sara Carter is warning that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is being pressured to slow walk and scrub large sections of his report before releasing it to Congress.
There is no secret why they are doing this. From every insider account, the report is devastating to the FBI and the DOJ. Some have said it is much worse than anyone thought. Horowitz’s first report made a criminal referral against former deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe for lying multiple times under oath. The new report is said to implicate the entire 7th floor of the FBI, where all the high ranking officials have their offices.
Sara Carter reported:
The Department of Justice and the FBI are deliberately attempting to slow roll and redact significant portions of DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, according to numerous congressional officials and investigators.
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.”
“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!”

It is quite possible that Horowitz’s report will be heavily redacted by the FBI and the DOJ. If that happens, one of two things need to be done. The president can declassify all the documents which he is constitutionally empowered to do or Chairman Devin Nunes can demand all the documents be sent to him unredacted or he will start impeachment proceedings against all the top brass.
The games must stop here. They are trying to run the clock out and make sure none of this information is available to the public before the midterm elections.
