A new report released on Friday indicated that the highly-anticipated testimony from Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been postponed as new leads have emerged in his review of the criminal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told Horowitz he wanted to reschedule his May 8 testimony due to revelations made in an April 23 letter from Horowitz.
Fox News reports:
The developments suggest Horowitz is still working to complete his review of the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Clinton case. Sources familiar with the review have told Fox News that Horowitz has continued to pursue new leads and witnesses in recent weeks.
“It is of the utmost importance that your review be as fulsome, complete and unimpeded as possible,” Gowdy said.
Gowdy added that he wants the testimony rescheduled “as close to the day the report is finalized as is practicable.”
Fox News noted that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said on Friday that he expects Horowitz’s report to be completed soon.
“Within the next few weeks, I anticipate that our inspector general will complete a comprehensive, fair and nonpartisan report that answers many questions about how the Department of Justice handled a high-profile investigation during the last presidential campaign,” said Rosenstein. “We will learn from it, and our Department will do better in the future.”
