DOJ watchdog's FISA Report Will be Released Just in Time for Christmas!
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on allegations of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant abuse during the 2016 election will be released on Dec. 9.
During an appearance on "Hannity" Wednesday, host Sean Hannity noted Horowitz will be coming before Graham's committee on Dec. 11 to testify on the matter and went on to ask Graham not to allow a Friday night document "dump" that could muffle the coverage of the news.
In response, Graham smiled and nodded.
"It'll be December 9th — you'll get the report," the South Carolina lawmaker said.
Horowitz told congressional lawmakers in an October letter that his investigation and ensuing report were nearing their conclusion.
The "lengthy" draft report "concerns sensitive national security and law enforcement matters," Horowitz wrote in the letter, adding that he anticipated "the final report will be released publicly with few redactions."
Horowitz noted that he did not anticipate a need to prepare or issue "separate classified and public versions of the report."
"After we receive the final classification markings from the Department and the FBI, we will then proceed with our usual process for preparing a final report, including ensuring that appropriate reviews occur for accuracy and comment purposes," Horowitz wrote in the letter. "Once begun, we do not anticipate the time for that review to be lengthy."
WIBC host Tony Katz offered comments on Thursday morning:
"I love a good origins story. I want to know how it all came together. I want to know what exactly the deep state was doing to get information in front of the FISA court to get the warrants necessary to spy on Americans.
Are we kidding ourselves with this trash? Does it really matter what you call it? There were absolutely people who thought they were above the law, above the American people, and thought they could thwart the duly elected President of the United States. They thought they could disregard what the American people wanted.
They hate you for the way you voted, and therefore, they have to destroy you in order to prove that what you voted for was wrong and they were right."
