IG Horowitz Postpones Testimony to Pursue New Leads in His Review of Hillary Clinton Email Investigation
The Office of Inspector General is very close to completing a comprehensive report on how the FBI and DOJ handled Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein said on Friday, IG Horowitz will have a complete report “within the next few weeks.”
The slight delay is due to new leads Horowitz is pursuing in his review of Hillary Clinton.
Fox News Producer Jake Gibson reported on Friday that Rosenstein anticipates Horowitz’s report to be completed soon.
Jake Gibson tweeted: Rosenstein:”Within the next few weeks, I anticipate that our Inspector General will complete a comprehensive, fair and nonpartisan report that answers many questions about how the DOJ handled a high-profile investigation during the last presidential campaign.”

Fox News reported:
Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s widely anticipated testimony next week before the House Oversight Committee has been postponed, as the Justice Department IG has pursued new leads in his review of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, according to a congressional letter and sources familiar with the matter.
“It is of the utmost importance that your review be as fulsome, complete and unimpeded as possible,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the chairman of the committee, wrote in a recent letter to Horowitz obtained by Fox News.
Horowitz was scheduled to appear before the committee on May 8. But Gowdy told Horowitz he wants to reschedule his testimony “as close to the day the report is finalized as is practicable.”
The Inspector General released a scathing report on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in mid-April.
The report by the Office of Inspector General criticized McCabe for “lack of candor” regarding his disclosure to Wall Street Journal reporters before the 2016 election.
McCabe lied at least three times under oath, he lied to the Inspector General and lied to James Comey.
As a result of these investigations and reports, Andrew McCabe has been criminally referred to the Justice Department twice.
Sources tell TIME Magazine, Comey faces a punishing report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
Inspector General Horowitz opened a separate investigation into James Comey on April 20th over classified information stemming from his memo leaks.
The release date of the IG report on Comey’s memo leaks is unknown at this time.
Unfortunately without an active Attorney General, the criminal referrals remain stagnant.
