Today’s Campaign Update, PART II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The fake news outlets are taking turns parroting the Coup Cabal’s talking points. – Saturday was the New York Times day, and Sunday, it was NBC’s turn at the fake news bar as the Coup Cabal continues to try to build an exculpatory narrative in advance of the release of the Horowitz report. We’ve seen this repeatedly over the past few years, as America’s fake news media continues to toady for its Democrat masters.
NBC News started its shilling right at the top, with a hilariously-slanted headline: “AG Barr expands mysterious review into origin of Russia investigation.” Oooooohhhh, it’s all “mysterious” and stuff. The sub-head is even better: “If U.S. Attorney John Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined.”
Oh, hey, guess who no doubt fed NBC that headline and sub-head: Could it be Obama CIA Director John Brennan? It seems likely, given this passage hidden way down in the bowels of the piece:
If Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined. The Justice Department has not detailed any, and a spokeswoman declined to comment for this story.
“I don’t know what the legal basis for this is,” Brennan said, calling the probe “bizarre.”
So, Saturday’s theme parroted by the New York Times was that, hey, the Coup Cabal didn’t do anything wrong in the sham Clinton email “investigation,” and Sunday’s theme is “the Barr/Durham investigation is all mysterious and bizarre and stuff, or something.”
The NBC piece is an obvious, blatant effort to paint the Barr/Durham investigation to be somehow illegitimate, which explains the use of Brennan-fed code words like “bizarre,” “mysterious,” and “unusual” throughout. Of course, there is nothing mysterious or unusual about the investigation at all, and Barr spent a ton of time in May explaining in great detail why he was pursuing the investigation and what he and Durham would be looking at.
NBC even details much of that in its own piece:
Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general, has conducted an investigation into the FBI’s actions in launching the Russia probe.
But Barr has said he believes an IG inquiry is not sufficient to answer the questions he has about how the investigation began. In doing so, he made comments suggesting Durham had authority only a criminal investigation could provide.
In a May 31 interview with CBS News, Barr said Horowitz “doesn’t have the power to compel testimony, he doesn’t have the power really to investigate beyond the current cast of characters at the Department of Justice. His ability to get information from former officials or from other agencies outside the department is very limited.”
Barr also said in the interview that the purpose of the Durham review is to make sure there was not inappropriate surveillance of the Trump campaign.
“I had a lot of questions about what was going on,” he said. “Some of the facts that I’ve learned don’t hang together with the official explanations of what happened.”
Ok, so, what is “mysterious,” “bizarre,” or “unusual” about any of that? Barr is concerned about the origins of myriad FBI/CIA/DOJ-sanctioned efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign/Trump Transition/Trump Administration were improperly originated and conducted, and that no one has made any real effort to get to the bottom of why that all happened and who authorized the spying in the first place. So, he has detailed Durham to lead a probe to get to the bottom of it all.
IG Horowitz has no power to subpoena witnesses outside of the DOJ/FBI employee base, and no power to convene grand juries to seek indictments should crimes be uncovered. Durham, as a U.S. Attorney, does possess those powers.
This is not complicated, except for fake journalists who are set on pretending to be intentionally obtuse in efforts to deceive the American public. And that’s how we end up with these fake media outlets taking turns goose-stepping to marching music being played by the Coup Cabal.
Can’t wait to see what Monday’s theme becomes, and which fake news media outlet gets to parrot it for Brennan/Clapper/Comey and company. My money’s on ABC or The Washington Post.
That is all.
