Chairman @ChuckGrassley: @SenJudiciary Committee to hold hearing entitled: “Examining the Inspector General’s First Report on @TheJusticeDept Decisions Regarding the 2016 Presidential Election” on Tuesday, June 5 at 10:00 a.m.

Fox News reported:

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is slated to testify before congressional committees next month, presumably after the release of his long-awaited report on the FBI’s Hillary Clinton investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign, Fox News has learned.

Both the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight Committee are preparing to have Horowitz appear before them in early June, according to a congressional source.

On Tuesday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said his committee would hold a hearing titled “Examining the Inspector General’s First Report on Justice Department Decisions Regarding the 2016 Presidential Election” on June 5.

In June, House Republicans also plan to interview three FBI officials linked to the agency’s handling of the Clinton email probe, part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees.

To be interviewed are: Bill Priestap, assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division; Michael Steinbach, former head of the agency’s national security division; and Steinbach’s predecessor, John Giacalone.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz informed lawmakers two weeks ago on Capitol Hill his much-anticipated report on the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation entered the final stages.

Sources are saying the report on the FBI’s 7th floor under Comey’s Directorship is absolutely damning and “worse than expected.”

James Gagliano, a retired FBI agent who left the bureau in 2015 said buckle up because the IG report will be very damning. 

So far, Inspector General Michael Horowitz, an Obama-appointee has delivered.

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.

As a result of these investigations and reports, Andrew McCabe has been criminally referred to the Justice Department twice.

Unfortunately without an active Attorney General, none of the criminal referrals sent to the DOJ will result in indictments.
