DOJ’s IG Horowitz to testify before Senate on Dec 11

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz testifies before the Senate November, 2018. He spoke about how the FBI handled investigations ahead of the 2016 elections. He will release his new report on the FBI’s FISA application and its handling of its investigation into Trump on Dec. 9. He will testify again on Dec. 11.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Dec. 11, all but confirming the imminent release of his widely anticipated report into potential FBI and DOJ surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign.

A source told Fox News last month that Horowitz’s upcoming report will shed light on why Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation.

In announcing Horowitz’s upcoming testimony, Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., called the independent watchdog a “good man” who has “served our nation well.” Horowitz was appointed to the post by then-President Obama.

“I appreciate all the hard work by Mr. Horowitz and his team regarding the Carter Page FISA warrant application and the counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign,” Graham said in a statement.
