Report: Is Deep State Attempting to Run Out the Clock on IG Report?
Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, expressed frustration Monday following the latest delay in the release of the DOJ’s inspector general’s report on FISA Court abuse against the Trump campaign.
Sen. Grassley: “All of the delays and excuses why the Horowitz IG FISA report isn’t public yet after several months of anticipation of its issues leads me to the suspicion it’s going to be ‘deep six’ [sic] by the deep state,” Grassley wrote on Twitter.

The IG report was pushed back to last week but was not released.
And now there is no word on whether it will be released this week after last week’s delay.
Grassley suspects the Deep State may discard the findings and the public may never see the criminal activity taken by the Obama administration against the Trump campaign in 2016.
Last week former Republican lawmaker Jason Chaffetz suggested the delay was due to intra-agency squabbling over the proposed redactions. Chaffetz added that he has not seen any evidence that FBI Director Wray has been cooperative in the investigation.
Investigative reporter Paul Sperry suggests this may be an attempt by the Deep State intelligence community to run out the clock.
If President Trump is impeached before the IG report is released we may never see it.
3/3 The IG report along with all the classified docs are still being held back from the public. If impeachment beats their release, then you know the fix is in.
