On Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham discussed the upcoming release of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report with the Fox News host and told him to “stay tuned.” The moment was at the end of the segment with on Fox News and is and will leave many Trump supporters breathless.
The moment starts at the 4:50 mark when Sean Hannity asks the South Carolina Republican if the IG report is the “real deal.” Graham responds: “You can put this one in the bank.”
Graham announced Monday that he is going to be holding a hearing on December 11 featuring Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
Graham announced the hearing and praiased Horowitz as a “good man that has served our national well.”
“I appreciate all the hard work by Mr. Horowitz and his team regarding the Carter Page FISA warrant application and the counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign,” Graham said. He continued saying that the IG “will deliver a detailed report of what he found regarding his investigation, along with recommendations as to how to make our judicial and investigative systems better.”
This comes along with the news that the inspector general is finishing up an investigation into the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference and alleged coordination with the 2016 Trump campaign.

There have been rumblings that the IG report is expected to be released soon. As PEN Media previously reported, the report from Horowitz is expected to “be made public before Thanksgiving and the outcome is alleged to contain several criminal referrals,” sources told journalist Sara Carter.
Graham met with Attorney General William Barr earlier in November to get an update on the classification review being carried out by the Justice Department and the FBI into Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report.
On November 6, Graham told host Martha MacCallum that the report “is about done” and that Horowitz will “talk about what he’s found in terms of FISA intelligence abuse in the counter-investigation of the Trump campaign.”
“I think his report is going to be stunning. I think it is going to be damning. I think it’s going to prove that the system got off the rails and we need corrective action. Where I go from there I won’t know until I hear from him,” he said.
Horowitz announced back in September that he had completed his year and a half long investigation.
