nearvideo inspector General Horowitz referred to Jim Comey for law enforcement
The former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tom Dupree, says Horowitz criminal referral for former FBI Director Jim Comey is a burst of a ” big bomb.’
The long-awaited report by justice Department inspector General Michael Horowitz about possible surveillance abuses by intelligence officials during the 2016 Russia investigation is still in the opening of the Archive process, a DOJ official told Fox News on Wednesday.
“The FBI and the justice Department work together smoothly, said at the opening of the archives to process,” the official said.
In comments to reporters at the White house on Thursday, President Trump-he, the authority reserves the right to declassify and release as much of the report, as he wants to speculate — that the final report could also implicate former President Barack Obama.
“Well, we’ll see what happens,” Trump said. “The IG report to come soon, and we’ll see what happens. I think people-I don’t know about you, in relation to the report. … I’m waiting for the report like everyone else. But I predict you will see things that will make you believe that the level of corruption-whether it was [James] Comey; whether it’s [Peter] Strzok and his lover, [Lisa] page; if there are so many other people — [Andrew] McCabe; whether you are President Obama himself. Let’s see whether or not it is President Obama. Let’s see whether or not you put that in.”
On Monday, the former Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, now a Fox News contributor, told “Hannity” that the bureaucratic wrangling has been the reason why the report is not already available.
“Apparently, there is an intra-agency debate, and really a food fight, if you have any questions about the classification,” Chaffetz said. “Remember in the last report of Horowitz, it is only seven words or so were blackened, which were. The Democrats threw a fit, she couldn’t see the whole thing. This could be blackened, 10 to 20 percent of the report.”
Chaffetz speculated that the Obama administration’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and the ex-CIA Director John Brennan could be behind the apparent delay.
CARTER PAGE, ASK YOURSELF: WHY IS HOROWITZ EVEN INTERVIEW ME?
That was a reference to Horowitz ‘ bombshell first report last year found that the misconduct on the part of senior FBI officials, including Strzok and the page that replaced the anti-Trump-text-messages during the investigation of his campaign.
Last month, Horowitz told lawmakers, his team had almost completed its report and submitted a draft of the Attorney General William Barr.
“We have now begun the process of completion of our report by adding a draft of our factual findings of the Department and the FBI, for the classification determination and marking,” wrote Horowitz last month to several house and Senate committees. “This step is consistent with our process for reports such as this, the inclusion of classified information.”
The declassification process is one of the last steps before publication.
Chaffetz: Durham expansion of Russia-the probe is bad news for Brennan, clapper
U.S. attorney John Durham builds his study on the origin of the Russia probe in the middle of the new control over Robert Miller’s appointment as special counsel. The former Republican Congressman and Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz reacts.
Horowitz and his investigators have found out, like the infamous, and obscene anti-Trump dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele was the backup of the original Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant of arrest against the former trump aide Carter-page, in October 2016, as well as three extensions.
Horowitz ‘ team examined why the FBI got Steele — and you can be funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) — a credible source, and why the Bureau used programs to strengthen Steele’s credibility in front of the FISA court.

Horowitz’s probe is not the only ongoing review of the DOJ. U.S. attorney John Durham’s investigation into possible abuse of power by the secret services at the beginning of the Russia-investigation broadened in scope recently, based on Durham’s initial findings, reported by Fox News, earlier this month.
Durham, known as “hard-charging, bulldog” attorney, according to a source, was the focus on the period prior to Nov. 7, 2016 — including the use and allocation of FBI informants, as well as the alleged improper issuance of FISA warrants. Durham was asked to help Barr “ensure that the intelligence activities of the U.S. government in connection with the trump 2016 presidential campaign is lawful and appropriate.”
