    AG William Barr appoints prosecutor to examine origins of Russia investigation, source says

    https://www.chicagotribune.com/natio...513-story.html



    Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if intelligence collection involving the Trump campaign was "lawful and appropriate," a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Monday.

    Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to conduct the inquiry, the person said. The person could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

    Durham's appointment comes about a month after Barr told members of Congress he believed "spying did occur" on the Trump campaign in 2016. He later said he didn't mean anything pejorative and was gathering a team to look into the origins of the special counsel's investigation.

    Barr provided no details about what "spying" may have taken place but appeared to be alluding to a surveillance warrant the FBI obtained on a former Trump associate, Carter Page, and the FBI's use of an informant while the bureau was investigating former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos....

    2. so I guess they'll be looking into the oranges of the investigation

    When do they issue arrest warrants for the Obamas and Clintons?
    As soon as there's proof they broke he law. This time they won't have Valarie Jarrett, Brennan and Comey to protect them.

    4. Barr will end up being the one

    Going to prison doing this and other things for trump. He will face the consequences for what he's doing. He should be very scared , and having sleepless nights, because he's already in deep , deep trouble.
    That's the Democrats for you. Fascist. Authoritarian. Threatening contempt charges and worse for following the rule of law and not doing whatever helps the Democrats the most.

    8. Red meat for the ignorant base.

    They so much want to see Hillary and President Obama in prison.
    They broke the law. They lied, and they spied on a opposition presidential candidate and set up the whole Russia thing in order to try to overturn a legitimately elected President that they didn't like or agree with.

    I look forward to a year of schadenfreude as real crimes are revealed that the Dems, Obamas, Clintons, and DU-folk hoped would be kept secret by President-who-now-never-will-be Hillary. Hubris receiving its natural due reward.

    Don't count on it. At best and I do stress "At Best" we'll get the known bad actors. Comey, Ors ect.

    Situations like this rarely have direct finger prints right to the top. Even though there is enough to indicate they knew and was involved.

    Look at the IRS targeting. Enough there to show many top Dems including Obama knew it was going on, and even made special requested targeting. But to-date, not even Lois Lerner sites behind bars.

    I hopefully, look forward to the same thing. It looks like Barr made a good choice in John Durham, he actually exposed some of Mueller's past ethical lapses. However the wheels of justice turn slowly. Good prosecutors like to be thorough, dot all the Is and cross the Ts. The MSM will cover for the traitors as long as possible. When indictments come out you will hear these words and phrases on CNN: "political revenge" "banana republic" "prosecutors can indict a ham sandwich" etc. We need indictments, trial and verdict BEFORE the end of Trump's term in office. If Trump loses re-election (which I think is unlikely), the new democrat president will stop all proceedings on inauguration day. These people, who put partisan politics above the rule of law, do not need to be defeated at the polls, they need to be destroyed and driven into the margins of society along with the KKK.

    CourtTV will be back on the air soon, unfortunately federal courts do not allow cameras.

    Comey, Clapper and Brennan daily spew poison from the mouths on MSM. I suspect they are accumulating a war chest to hire teams of lawyers to drag out their pre-trial with superfluous and trivial motions until the new democrat president can save them and shut the prosecution down.

    I'm hopeful but still nervous.

    They thought they wouldn't be caught so they never built fail-safes into their coup-plan.

    They're architects of a spectacular failure, which reduced the Democratic Party to a Party of hate and hypocrisy. They have nothing else.

    Forgive my skepticism but I'll believe it when I see it. Weasels have a way of slithering out of things. It's what separates them from the other animals (except the weasels, of course).
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    The origins of the Russia investigation lead to a fictional dossier, written by Nellie Ohr for Fusion GPS, and brought to Christopher Steele in Britain to create the impression that Mrs. Ohr's creative writing project was actually Steele's own labor and research.

    Mrs. Ohr's creative writing project was then presented to the FISA court, where the FBI leadership vouched for its authenticity--"See, here is Christopher Steeles signature right here!"-- and, thus fooled, the FISA court approved the warrant.

    The FISA approval, however, was not really for approving future spying on Trump associates (though it did so) but to RETROACTIVELY cover all surveillance (spying) that had been going on previously--possibly up to 4 years previously--on Trump and other candidates as well (like Ted Cruz).

    What Barr will find is that Obama's FBI had been illegally using the NSA database for political purposes, and not just against Trump. THIS is the real scandal.

    The reason the FISA was necessary (and hence the need for Mrs. Ohr's creative writing project) was that NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers discovered and shut down the illegal spying (surveillance) in April of 2016.

    That left Barry, Hillary, and the rest scrambling for a way to make the illegal legal--to pretend there was a legitimate reason to spy on Trump. They settled on getting a FISA warrant to cover their collective asses. And the need for the FISA led to Mrs. Ohr creating Russian collusion fiction as a contractor for Fusion GPS.

    I agree this is most likely what happened and what they'll find. Obama was all about CONTROL and weaponizing the government against Republicans and anyone who didn't agree with him. It's why he constantly liberal like claimed that his administration was oh so transparent when it was the least transparent. It was how he hid what he was doing. Then when something DID get out he was "Oh, I learned about it on the news.". Yea, right. And that's what he'll probably say about this as well when they can no longer lie about it.

    Oh this is getting good.


    Bill Barr’s scope and probe is much wider than previously known.It was revealed Tuesday that Barr and Durham are working closely with CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats and FBI Director Christopher Wray on surveillance issues related to Trump’s 2016 campaign.

    This suggests a broader inter-agency effort is underway.According to Justice Department sources, John Durham is specifically targeting the CIA and it’s role in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe – Former CIA Director John Brennan and his “machinations during the 2016 campaign will come into sharper focus,” says investigative reporter Paul Sperry.
    An email from fired FBI Director James Comey from December 2016 that indicates it was John Brennan who pushed the dossier to be included in the IC report.
    A source inside the CIA blames Comey for including the dossier.
    Reports are coming out today that Comey is attacking Brennan.
