Justice Dept nearly finished with report probing FBI investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia

Published

on

The long-awaited report on the FBI’s investigation of President Donald Trump’s campaign appears to be nearly ready for release.

The Justice Department inspector general is asking witnesses to review drafts of the report over the next two months to submit feedback on their testimony, which suggests the report is almost complete, reported the Washington Post.

The witness feedback could potentially lead to additional investigation, which would slow the process, but one Justice Department official has said Nov. 20 had been pencilled in as a possible release date.

Other officials, however, have said the report would likely be released after Thanksgiving.

“I anticipate that the final report will be released publicly with few redactions,” said inspector general Michael Horowitz recently in a letter to lawmakers.

The inspector general has been investigating the origins of the FBI probe, especially on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court approval of surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Conservatives hope the report will help them argue that the FBI investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia was corrupt, and Republicans want the Justice Department to release the report next week, as the House conducts an impeachment inquiry.

Jared Kushner is ‘officially overseeing’ Trump’s 2020 campaign ‘from his seat in the West Wing’: NY Times

Published

The administration of President Donald Trump has had multiple scandals for using federal government resources to aid his 2020 re-election campaign, but senior White House advisor Jared Kushner is his de facto campaign manager, The New York Times reported Thursday.

"Hours before the House Judiciary Committee was set to take a historic vote to push President Trump to the brink of impeachment, campaign officials gathered across the Potomac River for a state-of-the-race briefing in which they described how the Republican Party had been transformed into the “beer and bluejeans party” crafted in Mr. Trump’s image," the newspaper reported, despite the fact Trump claims he does not drink beer and is not known for wearing anything other than suits and golf attire.
