I’m not excited about having to report this, but it’s a real concern and I think Grassley is right to raise it.
All we have experienced is delay, delay, delay when it comes to the Horowitz IG FISA report.
I remain optimistic it is due to the fact that the report has been expanded many times, with much new evidence and new witnesses coming forward.
But an alternative, less optimistic, explanation could also be at play, and Sen. Grassley just Tweeted it out:
Is he right?
I hope not, but I can't say I doubt him at this point.
The Daily Caller had more:
Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley expressed frustration Monday at a months long delay in the release of the Justice Department Inspector General’s report on possible FBI surveillance abuse against the Trump campaign, questioning whether the “deep state” has somehow slowed the release of the document.
“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’ by the deep state,” Grassley wrote on Twitter.
Michael Horowitz, the inspector general, began in March 2018 investigating whether the FBI complied with legal requirements in applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The bureau relied heavily on the unverified Steele dossier in applications for the warrants, as well as for the main investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
Christopher Steele, a former MI6 officer, dug up dirt on the Trump campaign on behalf of the DNC and Clinton campaign. In the dossier, he alleged that Trump aides, including Page, worked with Kremlin operatives to influence the 2016 election. Steele also claimed that there was a “well-developed conspiracy of coordination” between the Trump team and Russians.
