Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Has ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker turned state’s evidence in the Barr/Durham criminal probe? – You be the judge.
Last night, Ned Ryun, CEO and Founder of American Majority, appeared on One America News with host Jack Posobiec. The interview covered yesterday’s epic evidentiary tour de force in the Gen. Mike Flynn trial [more on that later] by badass attorney Sydney Powell and ended with Ryun’s startling claim that multiple former FBI/DOJ officials have confirmed to him that Baker is now a cooperating witness with Barr and Durham. Here is the vido clip of that interview, followed by a transcript:
For those of you dinosaurs who, like me, still like to read stuff, here is a transcript of the interview:
Posbiec: Two very important reports last night. First, that Barr and Durham are now conducing a criminal investigation. Second, that here comes Sydney Powell, in the Flynn Case, laying out what essentially is a conspiracy by high-level officials at the FBI and CIA working to entrap General Mike Flynn.
Ryun: Yeah, Jack, if all of these reports are true, and it’s increasingly looking like it, what we have suspected for months, that Barr and Durham were interested in getting to a criminal investigation. If this is true, they will get to the bottom of this.
The fact that we now see Durham has called grand juries. I think actually, Jack, this didn’t happen just in the last few days. I think that Durham has probably convened a grand jury weeks ago. But the amazing part is that the left, the administrative state players, the Democrats, their propagandists in the media tried to cow Bill Barr when he said that he thought there might have been spying that took place months and months ago, they tried to cow him into not pursuing this.
Bill Barr is going to pursue this, and I want to remind the listener, the viewers of this, Jack: Not only does he have experience and was at the CIA, and obviously was AG [under Bush 41] and has a lot of experience with the DOJ, people forget that Bill Barr was in private corporate practice for years. And you know what he was doing? He was a defense lawyer against government intrusion and abuse.
Bill Barr, I am convinced of this, is determined to not only get to the bottom of how this started and who abused their power, but he wants to set things right.
Posobiec: Sydney Powell has introduced into evidence the fact that Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, working together, actually edited and altered the 302 interview of General Flynn to make it appear that he had lied. What does that mean?
Ryun: The most important thing that we have to focus on is there have to be consequences. I’ve said this for months: There have to be consequences, there has to be jail time. All of this is based off trust. And I want the listeners and viewers to understand this: The law enforcement regime and the surveillance state here in the U.S. ultimately all come down to one word: Trust.
That trust has been shattered. Our trust in institutions, our trust in the people who actually are inside of those institutions have been shattered. And the only way that you restore that trust is for there to be consequences for their actions, and those consequences? Jail.
Posbiec: We have long questioned who exactly was it that leaked the highly-classified transcript of General Flynn’s phone call with the Russian ambassador. In this filing, Sydney Powell is stating that it was James Baker, the general counsel of the FBI, and that the Washington Post ran it at the urging of James Clapper.
Ryun: Yeah, no, I don’t doubt that. I do believe James Baker was guilty of leaking, I believe he did some things that he will have to bear the consequences for. But I’ve talked with some former high-level DOJ officials, Jack, who worked with James Baker back in the day. They believe that he is actually Witness #1 for Durham and Barr, that he is actually providing evidence against others inside of this entire investigation.
Let’s not forget: Not only was he general counsel at the FBI, he was also the FISA guy at the DOJ. I believe that he based a lot of what he did in the FISA process off trusting others. According to these sources, he has been used and abused, and he is actually being helpful to Barr and Durham. I think he will have to bear the consequences for some of his actions that I believe he is guilty of, but at the same time I think he’s being extremely helpful.
Posobiec: So, what you’re saying is that Baker has flipped.
Ryun: I do believe Baker has flipped based on my sources that have known and worked with Baker for years.
Posbiec: Thank you so much for being on with us today.
If Baker really has flipped, that is an enormous development in this investigation, since he will know where all the bodies are buried. Let’s hope it’s true.
As for Ms. Powell’s amazing filing of evidence in the Flynn Case on Friday, the folks over at The Conservative Treehouse have a terrific piece detailing and analyzing all of it, and you should check it out. It is long, but it is also a must-read for anyone hoping to understand how Strzok, Page and other FBI skunks attempted to frame Gen. Flynn.
For those of you who just like to look at videos, here is an interview Ms. Powell conducted with Lou Dobbs on Friday:
That is all. For now, anyway.
