IG's report expected to reveal truth behind DOJ actions

A constitutional attorney expects the soon-to-be-released inspector general's report will expose the depth to which Barack Obama's DOJ meddled in the 2016 president campaign of Donald Trump.
Barring any last-minute change, the long-awaited report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be released Thursday and the American public will know a great deal more about the Obama administration's handling of investigations into Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
In a letter to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Horowitz said the report's release is on schedule and is nearly through the "review and classification" process to which such reports are ordinarily subjected.
President Trump has complained about how long it has taken to get the report out. Matt Barber, co-founder and chief counsel of Christian Civil Rights Watch, says the foot-dragging is clearly an attempt to obstruct justice.
"They don't want ... discovered the depth to which the Obama administration DOJ meddled in the campaign of the opposing party's presidential candidate. This is unprecedented in history," he tells OneNewsNow.
U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, says Barber, is a big part of the problem. "I have said for months that Rosenstein needed to be fired and replaced," he adds. "He's very likely complicit in much of the nefarious activity in the spying and so forth."
As to the "review and classification" process mentioned by Horowitz, Barber believes the IG's office will redact much of the report – and "the parts they redact will probably be the parts that would implicate them the deepest," he says.
"So this has never been about protecting national security; this has never been about getting to the truth. This has always been about planting a spy in the Trump campaign and at every level trying to unseat a now-sitting president – and frankly it's treasonous."
But the constitutional attorney remains hopeful that the IG's report, regardless of redactions, will shed light on just how deep this conspiracy went.
