President Donald Trump is going to enjoy a yuge 72nd birthday celebration on June 14, as the highly-anticipated Inspector General’s report on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal will be released on that day.
Michael Horowitz, the Obama-appointed IG, made the revelation in a letter to Senator Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Horowitz also revealed that the Senate Judiciary hearing on the matter is scheduled for June 18, four days after President Trump’s birthday.
The Inspector General is an independent division of the Department of Justice whose mission is to investigate fraud, abuse, and misconduct in the DOJ, which oversees the FBI.
Despite the fact that IG Michael Horowitz was appointed by former president Barack Obama, he has demonstrated on numerous occasions that he is unbiased and nonpartisan.
According to the Washington Post, the IG report is expected to blast former FBI director James Comey and other senior-level Obama holdovers in the DOJ and FBI for their gross mishandling of Hillary Clinton’s unsecured email server.
A draft report from the DOJ’s internal watchdog described Comey as “insubordinate,” and slammed former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch for mishandling the Clinton email investigation.
The Inspector General’s review will also reveal if former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe had improperly leaked secret info to Hillary’s 2016 campaign.
McCabe was fired in March 2018 after he admitted he lied to FBI investigators regarding his 2016 decision to leak intel to the Wall Street Journal about Hillary’s email probe.

So far, the IG has uncovered the anti-Trump texts between former FBI attorney Lisa Page and her lover Peter Strzok, the former FBI deputy assistant director of counterintelligence.
Page and Strzok were having an affair while working on Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Trump campaign. In their 50,000 anti-Trump texts, Page and Strzok mocked President Trump as “an idiot” and discussed having “an insurance policy” to undermine his presidency.
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said he believes parts of the IG report were leaked to the media to ensure it won’t be changed by high-level Obama holdovers in the Department of Justice.
“They want people ..to see the original,” Dershowitz told Fox News.
Dershowitz — a lifelong liberal who voted for Hillary Clinton — said the IG report reaffirms that there was no need to appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller (the former FBI director under Obama).
“We have the Inspector General. He is independent and he does a great job,” Dershowitz explained. “All of this [Muller’s expensive probe] could have been done through the Justice Department and regular lawyers. You don’t need to bring in a multi-million-dollar group of people with a target on the back of specific individuals. That’s not the way justice should operate.”
