‘Twas the Night Before the Inspector General’s Report

It’s getting closer!

Right-wingers in Washington are sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation of Thursday’s coming Inspector General DOJ report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The document is expected to be highly critical of leaders inside the Justice Department. Two incidents have already been exposed which, some congressional Republicans say, confirm wrongdoing.

IG Michael Horowitz’s critical April report on Andrew McCabe accused the former FBI director of authorizing a leak to the press meant to “advance his personal interests” and misdirect the investigation.

Additionally, Horowitz’s actions led to the public reveal of text messages between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, which criticized Trump and other politicians during the 2016 campaign trail.

Once the report is released, Horowitz — who is set to speak at back-to-back hearings next week — will doubtlessly be forced to explains points of the investigation.

At issue in the report in particular is the behavior of former FBI Director James Comey, a particularly common target of the President and others on his side. In fact, perhaps you remember this tweet:

…and my personal favorite:

Really, it’s not often you hear a President call someone a slime ball.

Only days after being canned by The Donald in May of last year (and replaced by Robert Mueller), you may remember, Comey gave a friend — Columbia law professor Daniel Richman — personal memos regarding his interaction with the President. Richman then shared the memos with The New York Times.

In his memoir, Comey has admitted regret over failing to review emails found on Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s husband’s laptop until over a month after he was made aware of it:

“I’ve also asked myself a hundred times whether I should have pressed for faster action after hearing something about Weiner’s laptop around the beginning of October. But I did not understand what it meant until October 27.”

There’s so much to explore, which may or may not be addressed in the report. Whatever it turns out to contain, one thing is for sure: tonight, Republicans are nestled, all snug in their bed, hurriedly snoozing because tomorrow, just maybe, Santa Claus is coming. And that will be a reason to dance, like so many sugar plums in their hopeful heads.
