Boom: Barr and Durham Shift to Criminal Investigation

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

And just like that, stuff got real. –  That squeaky noise you heard early Thursday evening was the sound of sphincters tightening in unison all over the DC Swamp. That was when news leaked that Attorney General William Barr has authorized U.S. Attorney John Durham to shift gears.

What has to this point been an administrative inquiry into the origins of the Obama-era efforts by the coup cabal to spy on the Trump Campaign and Transition team will now become a full criminal inquiry. As the New York Times reluctantly reported, the move gives Durham and his team of prosecutors and investigators “the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to convene a grand jury and to file criminal charges.”

It’s actually even better than that, enough to make the Deep State toadies at the Times and the rest of the fake news media want to cry.  Durham can in fact convene not just one grand jury, but as many grand juries as he wants and needs to convene. Better yet, because Durham is based in Connecticut, his grand juries can be convened there, outside of the 90% Democrat snake pit of Washington, DC.

Naturally, the Times, in its role as the chief propaganda organ for the Deep State, structured its story on the talking points of the Coup Cabal’s prevailing narrative. Here are the key outtakes:

The opening of a criminal investigation is likely to raise alarms that Mr. Trump is using the Justice Department to go after his perceived enemies. Mr. Trump fired James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director under whose watch agents opened the Russia inquiry, and has long assailed other top former law enforcement and intelligence officials as partisans who sought to block his election.

Mr. Trump has made clear that he sees the typically independent Justice Department as a tool to be wielded against his political enemies. That view factors into the impeachment investigation against him, as does his long obsession with the origins of the Russia inquiry.

This is all the standard nonsense. Trump has upset the DC Swamp way of doing things by being a Republican President who actually fights back when attacked. The Times and their fellow media toadies demand that Republican presidents remain silent and just take it when the DC Swamp and its propaganda machine rises to assault them.

Of course President Trump fired the utterly corrupt James Comey when he found out that Comey had spied on him and was still attempting to entrap him. Of course President Trump has lambasted Comey, Brennan and other former “top law enforcement officials,” since he knows that they were the leaders of Spygate and the neverending coup. Sure, George W. Bush and his Poppy never pushed back when the Swamp attacked – they were part of the Swamp themselves, as was Nixon.

The final 15 or so paragraphs of the slimy Times piece is a point-by-point recital of the coup plotters’ preferred narrative, no doubt dictated personally the lead plotters themselves. If it sounds like a story that was written by the Cabal’s defense lawyers, that’s because it most likely was.

You should read it just to become familiar with what you’re going to hear from Democrat talking heads and fake hosts all over cable television in the coming weeks. They will all recite passages from these paragraphs word-for-word, like the sock puppets they really are.

You can also expect the media/Democrat effort to smear Barr, which has already been underway for months, to now shift into high gear, and expand to also include Durham. The Deep State’s Alinsky-based model always requires the character assassination of anyone who rises as a threat, so that’s a given.

Interestingly, the news about this becoming a criminal investigation came right on the heels of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz telling congress in a letter Thursday afternoon that he is finally, at long last, entering the final phases of getting his report on FISA abuse ready for public release. Horowitz had announced the completion of his report on September 13, and apparently has waited all the time since for the internal DOJ/FBI classification review to be completed.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, “Horowitz said the process is “ongoing” and “consistent with our usual practice when an OIG report involves classified information.” The inspector general said he expects the final report to “be released publicly with few redactions” and does not “anticipate a need to prepare and issue separate classified and public versions of the report.”

Horowitz also said that the report is “lengthy” and “concerns sensitive national security and law enforcement matters,” which could mean a lot of different things. And hey, after taking all this absurd amount of time to complete, the damn thing had better be “lengthy.”

It is also interesting to note that both of these announcements come right on cue, as the Deep State’s favorite fake news organizations have been mounting a furious drive to preach the Coup Cabal’s gospel on a daily basis, as we have detailed this week at the Campaign Update. Obviously, the Brennans and Comeys and Clappers and Strzoks of the world know what’s coming and are doing their best to set their narrative in place before the actual truth starts coming out and indictments start flying.

At least, we hope indictments will ultimately start flying. The wheels of justice do turn slowly when the process is meticulously followed, but man, this has been like waiting for a family of turtles to cross I-10 in Houston during rush hour traffic.

Who knows what it will all ultimately produce, but as of this morning, there’s some reason to hope that at least some of the Coup Cabal plotters will ultimately face justice for their betrayals of this country.

That is all.

    I’m guessing that a lot of people have been flipped, here and overseas. Some evidence of that. That’s gonna make it hard for the fake media to deny the charges.

    The NYC Bar is trying to get Barr to “recuse himself” from the Ukranian investigation. Yeah, right. That’s desperation, in it’s full glory. They’ll (the NYC Bar)look like a pumpkin after Halloween night, and the kids have done their tricks. Boom indeed!

    The loudest sound in DC is the tick-tock of the clock marking the time until the indictments start flowing from Barr and Durham. In the cavernous heads of the coup cabal perpetrators, and others who thought it was a good idea to assist them with their plot to overthrow the election of ’16.
    Okay, the above is what I sincerely hope and pray is happening as the cabal hears the news of the investigations turning into a criminal as opposed to a civil procedure.
    That the almost daily allegations of wrongdoing re: President Donald J. Trump seem to ramp up, tells me that the rats are looking for hidey holes and quick exits should the truth get too close to them. Some will save the taxpayers money by offing themselves. Good. The more the merrier.
    Just sayin’.

      Last Week James Clapper threw X-CIA Brennan under the Bus but it all leads back to Obama giving the Orders.

      There’s going to be a lot more of this in the Future with the Deep State.

      All of them will be Charged with Treason.

      NO Activist Judge can help them because this will be a Jury Trial of Peers. All will be convicted and receive Death by Firing Squad.

      This is going to test the Republic, so get the Pop Corn ready I grantee it will be entertaining to those not involved.

    The Deep State trembles in fear. Perp walks of Bolshevik traitor RATS will be happening by this afternoon.
    Riiiiight.

    You are over the target, David. It is my hope ALL the rats in the D. C. Sewer are arrested & go to jail!

    Direct all airport personnel to be on the alert for Brennan (and perhaps Clapper, and Comey) in disguise.

    It might be wise to pull his passport.

    Cuba might provide a safe haven for the old Communist, or perhaps Iran if he is willing to convert to radical Islam–although he probably already has that covered.

    Clapper flipped. He said on TV that he did what the president told him to do. Well, son, you could be in a heap o’ trouble. That defense did not fly at Nuremberg for the other Nazis.

    Clapper is the weak link. They’ll squeeze him the hardest.

    Dave,

    You have been excellent in your coverage. Yours is the only blog I follow, Rush is the only program I regularly listen to along with the top of the hour fox radio reports.

    For the time being I have even quit going to Whatfinger for the stories as all of them get me so aggravated.

    Rush recommended several months ago to skip the MSM for a week to feel better, I have taken his advice and I do feel better.

    In 2007 I left my job in DC and moved to TN in part because I couldn’t stand the BS of the NCR (National Capital Region). My co workers were surprised as I was liked by most and trusted in my agency. One of my friends who was high ranking in the directorate was asked why I was leaving and he said because Gregg has integrity. No one ever gave me a greater complement. I left within months after the Dems took over congress on 2007 as I could see the writing on the wall and have never regretted the decision even though I have much less income.

    Unfortunately the national events since then have followed me to TN and I have followed them in great depth with much aggravation. After three years of this crap, I am glad to see something substantive beginning to happen.

    I will not follow it with the daily fervor that you do until I see real progress; tired of hearing about “Boom” it happened or it was a bad week for the swamp etc. I seldom listen to Hannity or any Fox “News” programs any more.

    However, I will continue to read and comment here, will continue to write to the President via snail mail, will continue to support him on everything, will contact my Tea Party congressman to get him to loudly support Trump and not standby quietly on the sidelines, and plan to visit a friend in Florida next fall for a month to work for Trump’s reelection in that vital swing state.

    I will also reengage when something happens that truly turns the tide on the cabal.

    Thanks for letting me vent and post my thoughts and keep up the great work.

    PS, I’m original a Red Sox fan, I liked the Orioles for awhile, hate the Yankees, respect well run teams like the Astros and the Rays. This year I am rooting for the Nats because they are about the only good thing that has come out of DC in decades and they have never won a title in their 50 years as the Expos/Nats.

      Gregg: Thank you for your kind comments, and thank you for being a contributor here. We’ve had a real, significant uptick in traffic recently, and I think a lot of it is due to our increasingly-active comments section.

    Just read article stating that Trump has given Barr full authority. Now if the Bolsheviks at alphabet soup agencies withhold documents they could be charged with obstruction.
    Also the presstitutes could be on the hook for conspiracy. There is a new sheriff in town and now you know why they hate and fear Trump.
    It isn’t just because the commie fossil RBG is on her last laps it is because he will upset the whole apple cart.
    Thank God for Trump for he is just the right guy at just the right time.
