Justice Department spokesperson Kerri Kupec confirmed to The Hill that Barr had been asked about Inspector General Michael Horowitz's probe into the warrant to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page during a press conference in Memphis, Tenn.
"It's my understanding that it is imminent," Barr said. "A number of people who are mentioned in the report are having an opportunity to right now to comment on how they're quoted in the report, and after that process is over — it should be very short — the report will be issued."
Republican senators have also indicated that the report could be coming soon.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) tweeted on Tuesday that it might come out "next week when they said it would."
"Next week when they said it would." IOW, agree with him or disagree with him, but Barr is a man of his word. He means what he says and says what he means.
