Either the fates have aligned, or President Donald Trump is one lucky man.
On June 14th, President Trump will turn 72 years old. And while he celebrates his birthday in style, he’s going to get a very special birthday present: James Comey’s head on a platter!
Not really…but close! On June 14th, the Justice Department will release a probe of former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation. And, word on the street is that the report will be none too complimentary.
From the Daily Mail:
Former FBI Director James Comey’s date with Washington’s political buzzsaw will be June 14. That’s when an internal Justice Department review of the agency’s Clinton email probe is set for public release.
President Donald Trump can’t wait: June 14 will be his 72nd birthday.
The Justice Department informed the Senate Judiciary Committee of its schedule on Thursday, and said Inspector General Michael Horowitz will testify in a public hearing on June 18. House Judiciary Committee members will get their chance to quiz Horowitz a day later.

Two days ago, ABC News gave an exclusive preview of the report, which is supposed to hold that Comey was “insubordinate,” namely that he defied authority by releasing the notice about reopening the Clinton email investigation just days before the 2016 election day.
One source told ABC News that the draft report explicitly used the word “insubordinate” to describe Comey’s behavior. Another source agreed with that characterization but could not confirm the use of the term.Advertisement - story continues below...

The report is also expected to be critical of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for her department’s handling of the Clinton email case. We still don’t know the extent of how critical it will ultimately be of Comey.
It’s about time this report is coming out. President Trump has demanded its release time and time again.
What is taking so long with the Inspector General’s Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey. Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker! There are so many horrible things to tell, the public has the right to know. Transparency!

The Department of Justice has been uncharacteristically slow at releasing documents related to internal investigations, such as what exactly the FBI did during the 2016 election. (RELATED: Devin Nunes Threatens To Hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt of Congress).
This kind of stonewalling has been unacceptable, and it’s about time we finally get the truth about how the Department of Justice has been fulfilling its duty.
Looks like on June 14th, President Trump won’t be the only one getting a present – the rest of the country will get one too. And it’s the best gift of all: the truth!
