The Timing of DOJ Inspector General Report and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s Investigation
Nov. 7, 2019 (EIRNS)—Joseph diGenova, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, and Victoria Toensing, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division of the Justice Department (DOJ), appeared on Fox News’ Lou Dobbs’ program Nov. 6 to state that the report prepared by the Justice Department’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz is “far worse” for the FBI, DOJ, and others than even they imagined.
The two cited “very reliable sources” who have viewed the draft report. As opposed to the Washington Post’s account of when the Horowitz Report will be released, diGenova explained that the delay is related to coordination with a criminal grand jury now convened and hearing testimony under U.S. Attorney John Durham.
Both predicted that senior levels of the Obama DOJ and FBI will be disbarred and undergo criminal prosecution. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), briefed Nov. 6 by Attorney General Barr on the contents of the Horowitz report, called the findings, “stunning,” and demonstrating that the Justice Department and its processes had gone “completely off the rails” with respect to President Donald Trump. This is the development Congress is literally racing to check or contain by the present impeachment farce, and next week, the Congress promise even more confetti and distraction.
