Republican Judiciary Committee member Rep. Andy Biggs (Ariz.) predicted Sunday an investigation probing potential abuses Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act will end with indictments.

"I anticipate that we're gonna see some very stark revelations of manipulation of the whole system for political purposes," Biggs said on Fox News. "When you see that happen, that's when I think you're going to see references or referrals for indictments, and I think you're actually gonna see some indictments."

Biggs claimed the report would uncover "essentially a coup attempt" against President Donald Trump.

The investigation, led by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, has concluded.

The inquiry focused on potential FISA abuses related to the government obtaining a surveillance warrant on Trump campaign associate Carter Page and probed the DOJ's overall handling of the Russia investigation.

Biggs said he expects Horowitz's report will be finalized by mid-September.

With regard to another investigation, the inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation that is being led by U.S. Attorney John Durham, Biggs predicted there would be "accountability."

"I think that you are going to see some accountability there," he said. "I hope we see accountability there."
