After President Trump bashed the conclusion of his report duringan impromptu press conference with Fox & Friends on Friday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz, author of the infamous IG report, is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday afternoon at 2 pm ET, along with FBI Director Christopher Wray.
No doubt, lawmakers will have plenty of questions about the report’s conclusion, which determined that Comey and the bureau were innocent of wrongdoing, though the report concluded that Comey was “insubordinate” and also singled out several instances of political bias.
Watch live below:
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey declined to attend the hearing. Comey said he’d be out of the country but according to Grassley, was recently tweeting from Iowa.

During his introduction, Grassley, who is chairman of the committee, said that under Lynch the DOJ allowed immunity for a low-level IT worker who twice lied to the FBI about destroying records under subpoena, but under Trump, the FBI charged a campaign associate with lying for providing the wrong for a conversation.
