Sean Hannity dropped an interesting piece of information on his show this week. According to his sources, Attorney General William Barr may already be in possession of the IG FISA abuse report.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Sean Hannity: Sources say William Barr may have inspector general FISA abuse report
Fox News host Sean Hannity said Attorney General William Barr may already have the Justice Department inspector general report on the investigation into alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses.
“Sources are telling me it may now have already been handed to the attorney general,” Hannity said on his Monday evening show.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz has not made any public statements about the investigation in months, but Barr said he expected Horowitz to complete the inquiry in late May or early June…
Horowitz began his investigation in March 2018, examining the Justice Department’s and FBI’s compliance with legal requirements as well as policies and procedures in applications filed with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court related to onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page as part of a larger counterintelligence investigation into President Trump’s campaign.

This is just one of the many reasons Democrats are in a mad dash to discredit Barr.
CBS News reports:
House to vote to hold Barr and McGahn in contempt next week
The full House of Representatives will vote on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress on June 11, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Monday.
“The resolution will authorize the Judiciary Committee to pursue civil action to seek enforcement of its subpoenas in federal court,” Hoyer said in a statement. “It also authorizes House Committees that have issued subpoenas as part of their oversight and investigation responsibilities to seek civil enforcement of those subpoenas when they are ignored.”
The House Judiciary Committee voted earlier this month to hold Barr in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with its subpoenas regarding documents related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report. President Trump has asserted privilege over the entire Mueller report and underlying documents.
And they probably should be.
