Marie Bartiromo had an outstanding program yesterday. She devoted much of it to the IG report and bore down to the nub of it. I can’t find the full thing right now, but this is a piece to start with.
Today is the big day when the IG heads to Capital Hill to testify as well as Strzok. I have yet to hear that it will be open, though we were promised by the GOPers that it would be. CLOSED.. yep.. Thanks GOP. UPDATE A comment:

My cable company will air it, not sure of others. ( I had checked earlier)
Here we go:
Dershowitz told Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” that FBI agents are allowed to have partisan proclivities but that he “draw[s] the line” at FBI agents expressing a desire to influence an investigation.
The inspector general report that came out this week revealed a new text message from Strzok to his colleague and lover Lisa Page promising “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president. (RELATED: STRZOK: ‘We’ll Stop’ Trump Presidency)
“FBI agents are allowed to be biased. They’re allowed to support political candidates, that’s part of the law,” Dershowitz said. “Where I draw the line is when an FBI agent says, ‘we’ll stop him.’”
“That’s not an expression of bias; that’s not saying who we’re gonna vote for. That sends a message to the American people that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is going to interfere in an election in an effort to try to stop the election of one candidate rather than the other,” he said. “That to me was where the red line was crossed.”
Dershowitz also asserted that this text message precludes Strzok from continuing to be an FBI agent.
