(Tea Party PAC) – This week, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has declared that if the long-awaited report on FISA abuse during the 2016 election does not come out next week as it is expected to, he will be asking if someone at the FBI or the DOJ has found a way to tie Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s hands.
We have gotten many projections on when the report is due out, the latest of which being next week.
“If FISA Inspector General Horowitz report doesn’t come out next week when they said it would then I will be very disappointed & left to wonder WHAT THE GAME IS?? Is someone at FBI or DOJ tying IGs hands??” Grassley said on Tuesday in a tweet.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to release his much-anticipated FISA abuse report before Thanksgiving and it is expected to contain several criminal referrals, reported investigative journalist Sara Carter.
Horowitz has been working on a report documenting the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] abuses by Obama’s corrupt DOJ and FBI during the 2016 election targeting Donald Trump.
“It’s as thick as a telephone book,” Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo recently said. “More than just FISA abuse.”
Horowitz’s report is also expected to reveal what TGP has reported on many times — that the FBI knew dossier author Christopher Steele (who was also used by the FBI as a CHS) was leaking to the media, but then used those leaked media reports as ‘evidence’ in their FISA warrant applications — this is known as circular intelligence reporting.
In other words, the FBI used its own leaked false information as ‘evidence’ to justify obtaining FISA warrants on Carter Page rather than independent intelligence gathered from other credible sources.
According to Sara Carter, Horowitz’s report will also contain evidence that the FBI treated Hillary Clinton’s campaign differently than Donald Trump’s camp. It will confirm reports that Hillary Clinton received a debriefing from the FBI on foreign attempts to infiltrate her camp, something the FBI never offered the Trump camp.
Michael Horowitz does not have the power to indict anyone, he can only criminally refer people for prosecution.
