Here is THE TRUTH.
I do not know what the "truth" is and I will gladly wait to see what is in the report before I make any conclusions.
One thing is for sure. I would not be willing to attempt to pass off that "Q" nonsense as truth, no matter how ignorant you think people are.
I'd rather stick to the facts. What you are dealing in is fantasy at this point.

The gop owns every branch of the legislature and has a majority in the Supreme Court.. EVERY investigation is a gop investigation, because they are all beholden to trump appointees..
Everyone involved has a boss that was appointed by trump..
So it for damn sure isn’t a democrat led investigation..
We will see later today..
Maybe I’m wrong and it won’t just be grandstanding.. they will announce a new hillary investigation or have a list of firings or other charges filed..but I doubt it.
This is a real easy prediction we don’t have to wait long for.

Here's what I'm expecting based on reporting, comments by various individuals and what's known:
1. The IG report will rebuke Comey for the announcing the closure and reopening of the FBI investigations. Which will be in line with Rosenstein's memo to Trump. Trump will use this to bolster his decision to fire Comey. Trump supporters will see this as getting him completely off the hook for any potential obstruction allegations re: firing Comey. Clinton supporters will see it as confirmation that Comey announcing the reopening of the email investigation hurt Clinton.
2. Some sort of rebuke of former AG Lynch for the tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton.
3. Strzok & Page will get dinged again for their texts with something about an appearance of bias. There's supposedly a couple previously unseen texts that will be suggestive but there will be no direct proof of impropriety. The pro-Trump crowd will seize on these texts and renew demands for a second SC.
4. McCabe leaking to the WSJ and lying about it.
What won't be there is any substantive evidence of a conspiracy to let Clinton off the hook or that Comey took any actions motivated by a desire to help Clinton or hurt Trump.
There will be stuff for everyone to cherry pick/ignore and plenty of room for both sides to argue. Attention will eventually move to the probe of the FBI's counterintelligence investigation which probably won't be wrapped up before the midterms.
