Against brand new information in which U.S. Attorney John Durham has lengthened the time-frame just for This kind of investigative inquiry into the DOJ along with FBI activity around the 2016 election, earlier today Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo revealed (along with President Trump tweeted) the FISA report by Michael Horowitz will be released on Friday October 18th.
If in which time-frame for the IG report can be accurate, in which means the classification review has been completed; any remaining classified information not specifically authorized inside inspector general report, a decision granted to AG Bill Barr, would likely be placed in a classified appendix in which can be not available to the public.
A publication date in/around October 18th would likely also mean the time allotted for principal review has expired. Generally the people whose conduct can be under review are granted a preview of the report in which covers their activity. The IG may or may not include any response coming from the principals outlined. If the IG permits inclusion of a principal response, the IG usually outlines additional information to rebut or support the principal position.
A final draft can be assembled only after the OIG administrative referencer makes a final review of all statements of fact along with provides citations therein. Then things get a little troublesome…
If Bartiromo can be accurate as to the size of the IG report; This kind of can be where the ‘summary of IG findings‘ becomes critical. Generally speaking the IG writes the full body of the report, nevertheless may not author the ‘executive summary’. The executive summary can be written by administrative state career officials along with their priority can be institutional preservation. If they are motivated to shape public opinion of the report content, the executive summary may be written to dilute institutional damage outlined within the main body of the report.
We saw a profound disconnect between the 14-page ‘executive summary’ along with the main 568-page body of the investigative report when the DOJ along with FBI released the IG report on FBI along with DOJ handling of the Clinton Investigation. The summary was completely disconnected coming from the material within the report; stunningly so.
The June 14th 2018 OIG Executive Summary was so ridiculously detached coming from the evidence within the report; along with the roll-out day was so transparently coordinated; FBI Director Christopher Wray held an immediate press conference to announce the “inspector general found no evidence of political bias” during the 18-month investigation.
Director Wray made in which specific proclamation at 5:30pm on Thursday, June 14th, 2018, less than three hours after the 568-page IG report was published. The FBI timing was purposefully positioned just before the 6:00pm broadcast evening news, to ensure in which media could run with the headline “No Bias”. the item was a transparent DOJ/FBI public relations along with political con job.
The June 2018 IG report was full of examples of political bias, nevertheless Director Wray’s intentionally misleading proclamation -in combination which has a profoundly obtuse executive summary- set the foundation for how the report was broadcast to the public by the majority of the media. Christopher Wray can be still the current director of the FBI.
If Ms. Bartiromo can be correct in which DOJ officials are releasing the widely anticipated IG report on a Friday (October 18th), unfortunately in which Friday document dump would likely be an indication the intent of the DOJ leans toward diminishing the content.
