What to Expect from that IG Report, and When Do We Expect It? Let's Ask Byron York

From F*** Hollywood, Byron York's thoughts:

Continuing now, but with just the words quoted, ditching the embedded tweets:

First, looks like it might be delayed yet again. Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a June 5 hearing to discuss IG report. After delay, had to be rescheduled for next Monday, June 11. Now looks like might be delayed again. 2/

Why delays? Feet are clearly being dragged. There are snags over classified information. Also, and this is intriguing: appears in last several weeks IG got new information, interviewed new witnesses. Could have contributed to delay. Don't know what it's about. 3/

So, when IG report is finally released--looking like mid-June--what will it cover? Don't know its conclusions, but here are some subjects you can expect to be reading about: 4/

Expect discussion of 6/27/16 Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton meeting on tarmac in Arizona. IG has done extensive investigation. What was said? What were the intentions of those involved? Expect it to be covered carefully. 5/

Expect discussion of James Comey's decision to begin drafting an exoneration memo for Hillary Clinton long before the FBI had even interviewed her, or at least a dozen other key figures in the case. Also: Why hand out so much immunity? 6/

Expect discussion of Comey's intentions when he announced re-opening of Clinton investigation on 10/28/16, shortly before election day. Democrats specifically asked IG to investigate that. 7/

Expect discussion of what Andrew McCabe did when he first learned about existence of Clinton emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop in early October 2016. Did he sit on information? If so, why? What did Comey know? 8/

Expect discussion on rationale for Comey's controversial 7/5/16 statement announcing no charges would be filed against Clinton. To say it was unorthodox would be an understatement. What was he doing? 9/

Expect discussion of Lynch's refusal to recuse herself from investigation or to appoint special counsel. Plus, look for discussion of why McCabe waited so long to recuse himself even after public reporting of Clinton-related political contributions to his wife. 10/

Finally, don't expect to learn much new about McCabe 'lack of candor' situation re: leaks. Not clear whether IG will reveal much beyond what has already been released in wake of McCabe firing. End/

Trump suspects the Deep State might be trying to massage the report:

Oh, we've got some leaks about the upcoming report. It will not surprise you to hear that it's Hillary partisans who appear to be doing the leaking, pushing out the story that if Comey erred, he erred in declaring she had acted with great carelessness in setting up her completely illegal, completely hackable secret server.

That's the preview they're trying to get out there -- Sure Comey f***ed up. But only in treating Hillary poorly.

The Department of Justice's internal watchdog has concluded that former FBI Director James Comey defied authority at times during his investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of private email server, according to a report on Wednesday.

Citing a draft of Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report, ABC said Comey ignored objections from the DOJ when he alerted Congress in a letter that the FBI had reopened the probe into Clinton just days before the 2016 presidential election.

Clinton's camp has argued that Comey’s action sunk her campaign.

They're talking about Comey listing her transgressions in the announcement that also announced he would not recommend any legal action against her.

Now, it is true that the FBI's usual rule is to not comment on a case it's decided not to prosecute. But then, Comey wasn't acting in his usual FBI role. Because of Loretta Lynch's fake recusal (where she did not officially recuse herself but offered the leftist media the obvious fudge that she would "defer" to her subordinates... probably), he was actually acting as the de facto AG explaining why the DOJ would not be pursuing criminal charges against an obvious criminal.

Is this against the rules? Eh, probably. But it's curious to me that this this the only solid bit that's leaking, the Oh Poor Hillary part.

This had better not be the IG's only finding of fault here.

More: John Sexton at Hot Air posts the latest-- supposedly Lynch will be faulted for her tarmac meeting, and McCabe will be faulted for delaying seeking a warrant to get the Hillary classified emails from the Serial Sexter's computer.
