Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
The fallout from Obamagate continues to accelerate. – Attorney General William Barr announced late yesterday that he has appointed a federal prosecutor in Texas to review the thousands of “unmasking” requests made by high officials during the final weeks of the Obama Administration. This new probe will be carried out by the appropriately-named John Bash, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas.
Bash will carry out the probe in coordination with U.S. attorneys John Durham and Jeff Jensen, who are looking into various aspects of the Trump-Russia investigation.
“The attorney general determined that certain aspects of unmasking needed to be reviewed separately as a support to John Durham’s investigation,” Kupec told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
On May 13, Republican senators released a list of 39 Obama-era government officials who submitted requests for intelligence reports during the presidential transition period that identified Flynn, the incoming national security adviser.
The documents showed that former Vice President Joe Biden, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan and other officials in the Obama administration submitted requests for information regarding Flynn.
Kupec said that while the process of unmasking is not “inherently” wrong, Barr is analyzing whether Obama officials had political motives in submitting requests for reports that identified Flynn.
Barr’s move comes amid rising calls for DOJ to appoint a special counsel to investigate not just the massive unmasking operation conducted by the Obama Coup Cabal, but the massive abuse of the FISA process that facilitated the “Crossfire Hurricane” illegal spying operation against the Trump Campaign and transition team. Such calls are wrong-headed and should be roundly rejected by any thinking person.
As we saw with the incredibly abusive Mueller operation, special counsel probes invariably turn political, and often devolve into Soviet-style inquisitions complete with entrapments, Nazi-style raids on homes and the literal framing of innocent people.
Barr’s approach is vastly preferable. Instead of appointing a special counsel under a law that places no limits on timing and budgets, or sidebars on the scope of the investigation, Barr has appointed a series of U.S. attorneys to investigate small, discrete chunks of the vast conspiracy mounted by the Obama White House, DOJ/FBI and Intelligence Community to fix the 2016 election and then to remove a duly-elected President via a soft coup d’etat on American soil. Unlike the similar appointment of Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber by Jeff Sessions back in 2017, Barr’s appointees actually produce results.
Simply put, the Special Counsel law is antithetical to the preservation of a free and just society. It should never be used again, and frankly should be repealed by congress.
AG Barr is providing us all with an alternative framework for how a truly functional Department of Justice can much more effectively and efficiently get to the bottom of massive wrongdoing without engaging in FBI actions reminiscent of the KGB and unending abuses of the rights of innocent U.S. citizens.
It is no wonder, then, that the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies hate and fear him so deeply. But the rest of us who actually care about our country’s future should remain patient with this man, because he is hovering right over the target.
That is all.
