As we grind our way deeper into the muck of 2018, President Trump certainly has his work cut out for him. Facing attacks on multiple fronts has been difficult work, but now a bit of reprieve could be in the offing.
This whole incredible experiment, Citizen President Trump, has been a bewildering spectacle only because The Donald managed to do what no other republican candidate could have done: Defeat the wicked witch of the East, Hillary Clinton, in a political contest. Don’t take that as any sort of indication of Hillary’s greatness, far from it; Hillary is ruthless and conniving in politics, and you can ask Seth Rich, the DNC, and Bernie Sanders about that claim.
To be honest, we wouldn’t have blamed Donald Trump for leaving Hillary alone to rot up in her Chappaqua, New York mansion. But no. As a man of his word, Trump and his administration have investigated the possible collusion between the FBI and Clinton that allegedly occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign. Now, the DOJ has scheduled the release of their findings for a very particular date.
The long-awaited watchdog report on the FBI and DOJ’s Hillary Clinton investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign will be released next Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said.
In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Horowitz said “we anticipate releasing the report on June 14, 2018.” That day is also President Trump’s birthday.
The inspector general also told committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in the letter that he has accepted the invitation to testify about the report on June 18, meaning his scheduled appearance before the committee is being delayed again.
Washington has been on edge since last month, when Horowitz told lawmakers the draft report was done. Congressional committees have scheduled, and then postponed, hearings with Horowitz while waiting for the report to be released.
