Inspector General Michael Horowitzs widely anticipated testimony next
week before the House Oversight Committee has been postponed, as the
Justice Department IG has pursued new leads in his review of the Hillary
Clinton email investigation, according to a congressional letter and
sources familiar with the matter.
It is of the utmost importance that your review be as fulsome, complete
and unimpeded as possible, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the chairman of the
committee, wrote in a recent letter to Horowitz obtained by Fox News.
Horowitz was scheduled to appear before the committee on May 8. But Gowdy
told Horowitz he wants to reschedule his testimony as close to the day
the report is finalized as is practicable.
Gowdy said the decision to postpone is based on the representations in
an April 23 letter from Horowitz.
The developments suggest Horowitz is still working to complete his review
of the FBI and DOJ's handling of the Clinton case. Sources familiar with
the review have told Fox News that Horowitz has continued to pursue new
leads and witnesses in recent weeks.
During a speech Friday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said he
expects Horowitzs review will be finalized soon.
Within the next few weeks, I anticipate that our inspector general will
complete a comprehensive, fair and nonpartisan report that answers many
questions about how the Department of Justice handled a high-profile
investigation during the last presidential campaign, Rosenstein said. We
will learn from it, and our Department will do better in the future.
Elements of a related review already have been made public. In April, a
Horowitz review faulted former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for his
role in a media leak about the Clinton Foundation. In that report,
Horowitz said McCabe lied four times -- three times under oath -- and
referred the matter to the U.S. Attorneys office for possible criminal
McCabe has vowed to fight the allegations, saying then-FBI Director James
Comey knew of his media engagement with the Wall Street Journal, but
wanted to distance himself from disclosures.
Horowitzs forthcoming report is also expected to examine actions taken at
the bureau by Comey. The former director confirmed in an interview with
Fox News last week that he had spoken with Horowitzs team about his
handling of memos documenting his conversations with President Trump.
Gowdy did not set a new date for the testimony, but, considering the short
congressional calendar in May, its possible Horowitzs testimony could be
put off until June.

ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its

Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
