    From the Washington Post:

    Justice Department inspector general’s report on FBI’s Russia probe to be delivered Dec. 9

    The Justice Department’s inspector general plans to release a long-awaited report on the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign and Russian election interference on Dec. 9, setting the stage for another partisan fight over the president’s conduct and the Justice Department.

    Trump and Republicans have been clamoring for the release of the report, particularly as House Democrats have held high-profile impeachment hearings this month.

    Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he had received a letter from Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz that he planned to release the report Dec. 9. Graham said he plans to hold a hearing with testimony from Horowitz two days later.

    Grisham discounts importance of hearing witnesses

    White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham sought to discount the importance of Thursday’s two witness and accused Democrats of being motivated by a “sick hatred” for Trump.

    “As has been the case throughout the Democrats’ impeachment sham, today’s witnesses rely heavily on their own presumptions, assumptions and opinions,” Grisham said in a statement distributed shortly after the hearing resumed. “These two witnesses, just like the rest, have no personal or direct knowledge regarding why U.S. aid was temporarily withheld.”

    She added: “The Democrats are clearly being motivated by a sick hatred for President Trump and their rabid desire to overturn the 2016 election. The American people deserve better.”

    McCarthy says no need for Trump to testify

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Thursday that he doesn’t think it’s necessary for Trump to testify in the impeachment inquiry.

    “I don’t see what the president would have to answer,” McCarthy said at his weekly news conference. “The president gave his transcript. What more would you need?”

    McCarthy also said he believes Sondland’s testimony exonerated Trump, telling reporters: “I think it was very clear. There was no quid pro quo.”

    However, in his testimony Wednesday, Sondland detailed what he characterized as an explicit quid pro quo with Ukraine at Trump’s ultimate directive.

    “Was there a quid pro quo? ... With regard to the requested White House call and the White House meeting, the answer is yes,” Sondland said.

    Asked directly what he thinks was the reason the military aid to Ukraine was finally released, McCarthy said he thinks it’s because Trump “had more confidence in the change in government in Ukraine” after Zelensky’s election.

    “You had a new leader inside Ukraine,” he said.
