Horowitz's 400-page report, the culmination of a almost two-year investigation, will be released December 9; he will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on December 11.

According to the Washington Post, IG Michael Horowitz plans to release his report next week which asserts that the FBI did have enough information to open an investigation into members of the Trump campaign in 2016.

"If it follows how his other reports have gone, it will probably include a lot of really damaging information about what the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other parts of the Department of Justice were doing, but it probably won't come down very hard on the people who were doing it", she said. The inspector general, Michael Horowitz, operates independently, meaning Barr can not order him to change his conclusion.

Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in a statement Monday that "the inspector general's investigation is a credit to the Department of Justice", that Horowitz's "excellent work has uncovered significant information that the American people will soon be able to read for themselves", and "rather than speculating, people should read the report for themselves next week" and "draw their own conclusions".

Barr was speaking at the third annual Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service in Policing when he compared police officers to war veterans and called on citizens to show them comparable respect. "I have long believed that the predicate for investigating the uranium deal, as well as the foundation, is far stronger than any basis for investigating so-called 'collusion, ' " he told the Times. It's not clear where he obtained that information.

The highly-anticipated report is expected to drop next week. But "the threshold to open the Russian Federation investigation was not particularly high", the Times reports. Barr could decide to go a completely different route and instead of writing a formal letter, he could make his objections known publicly.

"[American people] have to start showing-more than they do-the respect and support that law enforcement deserves, and if communities don't give that support and respect, they might find themselves without the police protection they need", Barr told the event's attendees.
