McCarthy made the ominous prediction on Fox News host Bill Hemmer's “Hemmer Time” podcast and said he expects the answer to what really spurred the investigation to be revealed when the Department of Justice's Inspector General releases his much-anticipated report.
“We're going to start getting the answers in the next four to six weeks when we can expect that Inspector General [Michael] Horowitz's reports are going to start flowing out,” McCarthy told Hemmer.
Hemmer then asked McCarthy if he believes Barr has been under such intense fire from some corners in an attempt to “dent his credibility”.
To explain what I mean by that -- when Trump won, nobody expected Trump to win.
McCarthy also agreed with Michael Mukasey, a former federal judge and President George W. Bush’s attorney general, who criticized Mueller for not telling the public earlier there was no collusion between Trump and Russia.
