A full-scale criminal investigation

October 25, 2019

Late Thursday, Washington was rocked and the Democrats’ media sycophants were rolled by the news that U.S. Attorney John Durham's probe into potential FBI and DOJ misconduct from before the 2016 election through early 2017 has officially shifted from an “administrative review” to a full-scale criminal investigation.  That means Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges, and impanel grand juries.

Fox News reported that “Durham's probe had expanded significantly based on new evidence uncovered during a recent trip to Rome with Attorney General Bill Barr.” One Fox source claimed that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz's upcoming report on alleged FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign would be coming out very soon with few redactions, and it would shed light on why Durham’s probe is now a criminal investigation.

Not surprisingly, the New York Times tried to frame the news as Barr and Durham enacting political retribution on Trump’s attackers (funny how they first claimed there were no Deep State attackers, now they praise them and claim that holding them to account for any crimes they committed is “retribution” against people they claimed didn’t exist for doing things they claimed never happened.)  Equally predictably, pantomime impeachment pushers Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler issued a statement to try to preemptively tar the investigators’ motives, reading in part, “If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.”

(Pause for you to stop laughing.)

They then quickly scurried back to their locked-door, double super-secret impeachment hearings where only they are allowed to question witnesses and selectively leak testimony and the President has no legal representation or due process rights.  Proving the ever-more-obvious truism that if you want to know what the Democrats are doing these days, just listen to what they accuse Trump of doing.

(On a side note, I love how all these reports tell us that the Rogue’s Gallery of Deep Staters we’ve all come to know are “lawyering up.”  Hey, why do they need lawyers?  It’s only an investigation, not a trial!  Shouldn’t they have to be questioned separately, in secret and without lawyers present, to ensure they don’t “coordinate their stories?”  Later, if they go to trial, that’s when they can have lawyers.  I’ve been hearing that garbage from all sorts of pompous media lefties all week long about the House impeachment circus, and I now expect it to be reeled in faster than a six-ounce trout.)

At this writing, this is still a breaking story, so I’ll have to see what details emerge and write about it in more depth later.  For now, here’s the Fox News write-up on what we know so far.

ConservativeTreehouse.com explains how the New York Times is attempting to spin the story to downplay it and protect the Democrats, including an exculpatory claim that the CT author shows is “demonstrably false.”

Finally, for a take on this subject that’s actually a fun read, check out Roger L. Simon’s explanation of who are the biggest losers in the announcement of the criminal investigation: the mainstream media.  They’ve spent the past three years exhibiting criminal incompetence by missing the real story while pumping out partisan propaganda and fake narratives.  This is worth reading just for Simon’s description of Adam Schiff as the Democrats’ “junior league Southern California Torquemada.”

This is only the beginning.  It looks as if there are a lot more shoes still to drop, and let’s hope a lot of people in Washington will be getting the boot.

    For AOC Just read she decided not to have children because of climate change.
    I frankly do not care what her reason is but am so glad she has decided not to procreate. This world could not stand for another one like her---they breed and vote and worse, they get elected May she forever hold to her convictions on child bearing

    I have held my breath for the last two years, I'm blue in the face with steam coming out of my ears at the same time. With all the problems facing America from Fentanyl flowing across our Southern border uninterrupted because the Border patrol is busy taking care of undocumented Democrats to trade deals that would position America to bring China into the fold of FREE-FAIR trade to making the Tax cuts permanent to sustain the Growth that was stymied by the previous administration using military funds to promote Social Justice and alternative energy sources and on and on while the Dim Wits continue to Search for a CRIME to impeach the sitting President on.
    I am, according to the Life Insurance Industry actuarial tables, PAST my due date. So for me I should be sitting back enjoying the Clown Show that I saw coming years before GHW Bush's administration but I Grieve for my Grand Children having to fight the Revolutionary War all over again all because academia has FAILED and the MEDIA that seems to think they will be immune from the coming carnage. I sadly award the media 10 out of 10 Forrest Gump's, Academia gets 8 of 10.

    Can not wait to here charges are being brought against the traitors in our government. Anyone in a government position that is there for self profit and does not care about America and the American people should be in jail. Traitors one and all. Amen.

    My suspicion is that this is part of the reason Obama doesn't endorse Biden. There was enough shady dealings in Obama's scandal-free presidency that Obama doesn't want a close lens applied to it, especially when it would be primarily defended by a gaffe-ridden hero like Joe. And Obama is politically savvy (and self-preserving) enough to know this. It also makes me sad for Biden because it shows that he was a useful person to himself as a white, easily-swayed figurehead but is easily cast aside for the sake of one's political ambitions. But I just had a strange thought: Biden would also represent a denouement to Obama's presidency. He is enjoying being a background player, but a Biden presidency would really force that to come to an end. It would be like an epilogue to his own presidency, if that came about.

    Gov. Huckabee...
    --- Excellent presentation in the newsletter - much information...
    --- Theory or perhaps fact - Pres. Trump pulling troops out of Middle-East will also enable Israel to be in position to defend themselves - no American troops in harms way and Israel now enabled!!!

    In order to get unfiltered information, is anyone looking into the use of SPLC by social media (twitter, YouTube, etc.) to censor/approve postings?

    OK....WHEN are they going to put the "silver bracelets" on the "Hildabeast"??
    And, when will the likes of Comey, Brennan, and all the slimey creatures from State, and FBI, and NSA, as well as the clowns at the DNC get the "Hoist by their petard" treatment?
    We are having the same kinds of things with our Reps at the federal level. IE; our Rep Katie Hill, who jumps from bed to bed, and even has affairs with un-elected, and volunteer aides !!!!

    Now that the spying on the Trump campaign is turning criminal, I am sure Hillary Clinton will want to jump into the Democratic Race for President to give herself cover just like Slow Joe B.
    Every time a prominent Dem gets looked into for criminal activity, they declare their intent to run for President.

    Isn't it amazing how everything the Democrats do is political and for only one reason an that is to get Trump out of office. When Republicans find evidence that Democrats have committed crimes then we become the bad guys using the same laws as no more than political tools. The left has become so twisted from hate they no longer have any conception of Right an Wrong or Good or Bad, they just think they are the only ones who are good and everyone who doesn't follow their agenda is bad. American society made a turn for the worse 50 years ago and we are at the brink of going down the Drain. Maybe we do need a Revolution to bring back the old patriotism this country was founded on as most of the immigration we have had in the last 50 years have not brought those who really wanted to be Americans just some meaningless hybrids here to escape being killed or from starvation in their own countries that they still somewhat cling to.

    I can't believe the rampant three ring circus of the Democratic House and biased media.

    Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer are the ringmasters and clowns in Ring #1. Ring #2 is Intellect & garbage disposal challenged AOC, Anti-Semite Ilmar whatever last name she's using at the time, Foul mouthed, anti-semite Tlaib, & Pressley will follow whatever the others do. Center ring is a mix of Clowns In America, Deep State Spooks & Mockingbird Media.

    How is it than these people can look themselves in the eye when they look in a mirror? I can barely stomach them. The world must think that they're pathetic and corrupt, not to mention laughable.

    I can't wait for this circus to leave town... hopefully never to return. Maybe Hollywood will hire them for a remake of "Ship of Fools."

    I just pray that Durham and Barr get ALL the facts out to the citizens of this country! I also hope they bring charges against Crooked Hillary and Evil Obama! This has been going on for too long! They need to pay for their crimes! They think they are untouchable and better than anyone else in this country!

    It does appear that we can now hope.
    When all the bad national news commentators are out of a job for trying to ruin America, I can only hope, then I hope you can have an evening national news spot to take their place. Some of them are fine for giving national weather,etc. but we need an honest and intelligent man to do the serious stuff.

    While all of this, and everyone glued to Syria, a city in Mexico came under attack, after the Mexican government captured El Chapo's son. Unforunately he was let go. This is across the southern border. The cartel need to be classified as terrorists.
