From memory, the Inspector General's report has been promised in:

or Never If the deep state forces succeed.

There is a time-value to information, just as there is to money. The time value of money is so well known there are formulas to calculate it, and has to do with both lost opportunity cost and inflation, that is the devaluation of the currency over time.

Both of these apply to information as well. Knowing something sooner is often far more valuable than knowing it a little later. That's why (when they were still legitimate) reporters competed to get the scoop. And, that's why it's illegal to give some information to anyone earlier than you give it to everyone, as is the case with corporations and their financial filings.

And like money, the value of information often goes down over time, as newer information makes it obsolete.

Even if Horowitz and Barr were to rally and get the OIG Report on FISA abuse out this week, it is already considerably devalued over what it would have been worth in August or September, before the impeachment process was begun.

The Deep State is playing a very effective defense in dragging out the release further and further. But pushing out until now the MSM will be able to put forward that this is merely a response by "the embattled President and his loyal supporters" to the "impending impeachment in the House".

The value sinks further if it isn't released until after the vote, when we are in the midst of the sham Senate trial we seem destined to have to endure.

It will become much easier for the MSM to bury the story amid the drama of a Senate impeachment trial. I'm sure many others remember the Clinton impeachment fondly, as I do.

“... and now November, but it sounds like it might be Dec”
Barr report sometime in spring is the latest. As per Fox News.

Slightly OT for you CW II guys, but the only way we keep a lid on things is allowing the legitimate corrective processes, like IG reports and prosecution of Deep State actors to take place.

If these are thwarted, and there is no reckoning for what the sentient 20% of the population already know has occurred we are deep into the post-Republic post-Rule of Law, and we are effectively living in the Former United States of America.

So, a lot rides on this, and yes, reaction time is a factor in this.

As I explained above, the longer the report is delayed, the less value it has. Imagine, worst case nightmare scenario:

The impeachment goes through the House and the Senate trial results in the removal of POTUS Trump and THEN the long awaited Horowitz IG report is released, demonstrating his innocence.

This may seem far-fetched, but then, this is pretty much what has happened in the Flynn trial.

There, all the evidence supporting Flynn's innocence was not made available to him in the charging phase, as it should have been, and based on what he knew and could prove at the time his lawyers encouraged him to take the guilty plea.

Had Mueller moved a little more quickly to sentence him, we would never even be finding out all the true facts of the FBI colluding to frame him that are coming out now.

Regardless of all the delecate factors involved A.G. Barr has a duty to release the OIG report now. Not after another month of the clowning Adam Schiff has been promulgating lies daily about the President. Not after the contemptible Jerry Nadler has assembled the Impeachment charges, but right freaking now when, YES, it can have the maximum political impact.

This is basic, and it's obvious. My regard for Barr as a champion wanes with each passing day.
