One of the best analysts on the subject of FBI misbehavior, former U.S. Attorney for Utah Brett Tolman, appeared on Sunday’s LIFE, LIBERTY & LEVIN. They talked specifically on the FBI’s efforts to cover up Democrats’ crimes.
The FBI did this for Hillary, of course, but they just keep following the same pattern, this time with Hunter Biden and family.
“It’s quite a moment in history,” Tolman said, “to be watching this in real time.” He says he can’t look at what they’re doing with the Biden case without thinking of what was exposed in the Durham Report.
“You have, on one side...the Vice President and President of the Obama administration, and the head of CIA, and the FBI, and DOJ, all conspiring to make a hoax look like a reality on the Russian ‘collusion’ investigation, and then you have the same offices, same agencies and many of the same people, making what is real corruption and real crime out to be a hoax.
“And they’re doing it while they’re right in front of us.”
He said that if he were still a U.S. attorney, he would’ve indicted “this case against the Bidens” a long time ago. Notice he said “the Bidens,” not just Hunter.
“I would have indicted immediately Hunter Biden,” he said, “in order to put an incredible amount of pressure on him to expose the full...level of corruption that is at stake. Everything I’ve seen, from the shell corporations that can’t define what their business is, to the movement of money, the money laundering, to the tax evasion, all of it is really the bread-and-butter of what the FBI and DOJ used to investigate 15-20 years ago.”
Tolman said that those “formers” (former FBI officials) who go on the media to say there’s no connection to Joe Biden are saying something “absolutely false.”
“There’s sufficient evidence to present it to a grand jury and to get an indictment,” he said, “and I’ll tell you why. You have [Tony] Bobulinski, who has already connected that money has flowed into the company and then out of the company, and that Joe Biden participated in receiving that money. You have, already, a whistleblower who came forward to the FBI and exposed the connection to Biden, and Chuck Grassley requested the document, so it is reliable. That’s information that a non-political DOJ and FBI would have utilized to expose what may be one of the greatest episodes of corruption our government has seen in the history of this country.”
He said that when he went to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, he got some advice from the outgoing attorney: “Don’t cede your authority and power to Washington DC...You are nominated and confirmed by the U.S. Senate, just like the attorney general. He cannot fire you; you serve at the pleasure of the President.” This powerful statement helped him make decisions independent from the influence of politics.
“That’s not the case any more,” he said. U.S. attorneys are losing their independence. “The Founders of the Constitution knew,” he said, “that centralizing that power in Washington DC would be the most dangerous thing for our country. Well, that’s what’s happened, and the U.S. attorney there, and the U.S. attorney on the...Hunter Biden case, they have ceded their authority and, I would argue, their ethics, their moral compass, to Washington DC’s gravity. And that, to me, is offensive, and it should be for the whole country, and it should suggest that Congress needs to clean this up.”
So U.S. attorneys have their own authority to act --- they don’t have to be led around by the attorney general or anyone else.
BREAKING: Tolman had something very revealing to say about January 6: “The outgoing U.S. attorney at the time of January 6 had identified a very small number of individuals that should be prosecuted, and had indicated to the DOJ that [this] was his intention. They forced him out because he did not have the same vision that they did in terms of what they would turn the January 6 prosecution into. And so I think about that and who they put in their place, and I think it is someone that will toe the line and follow what Washington DC wants. And that is the greatest injustice we have, because now we see that they will...make decisions and use their power based on politics rather than based on the facts and the evidence, which would result in a lot of people being prosecuted and put in jail, including the Biden family.”
The incoming U.S. attorney Tolman was talking about, who apparently shared the DOJ’s “vision,” is Matthew M. Graves, who began on November 5, 2021. He shares the DOJ’s “vision,” all right; in fact, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is calling for him to be impeached for malicious prosecution of January 6 protesters. The U.S. attorney on January 6 who, according to Tolman, wasn’t as aggressive as the DOJ wanted must have been Michael R. Sherwin, who was appointed on an interim basis by President Trump (uh-oh) in March 2020.
But we see from his bio at current law firm Kobre & Kim that he did move quite swiftly after January 6. “Under his leadership,” it reads, “more than 400 criminal cases were filed and over 500 search warrants, were executed throughout the U.S. in less than 10 weeks.” This says nothing about prosecutions, though, and apparently he wasn’t nearly as hot to prosecute most of the J6-ers as the Biden administration was. So Biden (what else?) replaced him with someone who was. And we’ve seen the result.
RELATED: K.T. McFarland, former deputy national security advisor to President Trump, alleged on Friday that the FBI, ‘Justice’ Department and CIA are planning to rig the 2024 election, just as they interfered with the 2016 and 2020 elections. In 2016 it was the Russia Hoax, and in 2020 it was with the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story. They’ve gotten away with it so far, so of course they’ll do it again.
“The difference is, in 2024 the evidence is there,” she said. “We now have the Durham investigation. We have all the congressional investigations. There is now hard evidence that there was election interference by the U.S. intelligence agencies and the Department of Justice.”
She also noted how terrified they must be at the thought of a Republican President if his own attorney general really investigates THEM and charges them “with the crimes they’ve committed over the last eight years.” Athena Thorne at PJ Media has more on how Politico also revealed the level of panic, both in the Deep State and among their sycophants in the media, over the thought of a so-called “rogue President” like Trump dismantling their rogue bureaucratic/surveillance state.
Despite the fact that most major media aren’t even reporting on the Durham Report, or calling it a dud when it tells the story of the biggest political scandal in living memory, Americans are figuring out that it was all a huge hoax. As Nick Arama reports in REDSTATE, a new Harvard Harris poll of registered voters shows that most believe the Trump-Russia “collusion” stories and the Steele “dossier” are fake stories.
Most of them also believe the Hunter Biden laptop is real and not Russian “disinformation,” that the Bidens --- including Joe Biden --- really have participated in influence peddling, and that the FBI is not investigating their crimes.
As Arama reports, “Voters are also very concerned about what the FBI did regarding Trump, are concerned about the interference in elections from FBI and intel agencies, and think sweeping reform is needed.” And “large majorities” feel Biden is mentally unfit and is too old for the job. Only 40 percent of Democrats say they’d vote for him in the primary and only half think he’ll win the primary.
Now, if a mentally unfit Biden could WIN, they’d still run him and continue pulling the strings. But a few more polls like this one, and the Dems will pull Biden out of the game and send in a pinch hitter.
Related: Speaking of polls, a new Rasmussen Survey of likely voters found that 42 percent think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden, although 66 percent think it’s not likely they will. A majority, 53 percent, believe it’s likely Biden has committed “high crimes and misdemeanors that would justify Congress impeaching him.” That includes over a third of Democrats and 48 percent of Independents.
Finally, here’s an idea: instead of prosecuting Americans who were NOT trying to stage a coup, how about prosecuting “DC’s finest,” who attempted their own coup --- manufactured evidence, framed Trump as an agent of Russia and perpetrated a fraud on the American people. Biden, Obama, Hillary Clinton, Brennan, Comey, Schiff, Clapper...they all participated. Surely that is illegal.
