Did Horowitz just confirm that there is another IG report which has not been tampered with by Rosenstein and Wray?
I got the impression several times in the Oversight Hearing today that Horowitz was trying to make it clear that the report was edited by others. He said this when he was being question about conclusions and about concealing names and other information.

Another new item we learned was, the FBI very carefully avoided naming Hillary Clinton as a target or subject of the e-mail investigation. So they could avoid having to say she was suspected of wrongdoing.
Mr. Palmer: "Are you aware that Strzok went to London in July of 2016?"
Horowitz: "I've learned of that through various public reports"
Mr. Palmer: "Thank you. Would it be fair to say that McCabe approved that trip and approved the expenditures for that?"
Horowitz: "I don't know the answer one way or the other"
Mr. Palmer: "I just wonder what other justification there could have been for a trip to London at that particular time other than the Russia probe and what concerns me was that when he returned he almost immediately launched that probe, that McCabe approved him going to London and he came back and he launched it. Do you think that there's any possibility that Strzok had prior knowledge that Christopher Steele was assembling the dossier?"
Horowitz: "That's one of the issues that we are / have been asked to look at. So we're in the middle of that work on how that played out with regard to the FISA application."
Mr. Palmer: "I'm glad that you made that point because another question I need to ask. Was there any possibility that the dossier was at least part of Strzok's 'Insurance Policy'? Because that statement came later I believe.
Horowitz: "That's right. The insurance policy statement came up on August.."
...They go on to discuss McCabe's bias due to Clinton contributions to his wife's campaign.
Mr. Palmer: "Do you think that either of them had knowledge that the Clinton campaign paid for the dossier?"
Horowitz: "... that is something that is part of the review that we are doing"
