Inspector General Horowitz told the DOJ and FBI operatives singled out in his upcoming report that he will not allow written rebuttals to the findings in his report.
IG Horowitz informed the witnesses that the information is classified and therefore any (more) leaks to the press will be investigated.
Expect the report around Thanksgiving.
Conservative Treehouse has an excellent report on this latest development.
The Deep State PR teams have already complained to the Washington Post:
The Justice Department Inspector General’s office has told witnesses who are set to review draft sections of its long-awaited report on the FBI investigation of President Trump’s 2016 campaign that they will not be allowed to submit written feedback — one in a series of unusual restrictions that some fear could make the final document less accurate, people familiar with the matter said.
As is the case in most inspector general probes, witnesses are being invited to review draft sections of the report and offer comments and corrections, the people said. But — unlike most cases — they are being told those comments must be conveyed only verbally, the people said.
Even though Attorney General William P. Barr and other officials have been working in recent weeks to determine what should be redacted from the report as classified or private information, people familiar with the process said that the entire draft document is marked “Top Secret,” so anyone who discusses its contents outside a secure government room could be committing a crime.
Apparently the Lawfare impeachment effort is failing.
Former fired FBI legal counsel, now Lawfare member, James Baker starts begging people to support the effort.
