Why the Horowitz Report Will Likely do Nothing to Advance the Cause of Justice

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Just a reminder: Do not put any hopes on Michael Horowitz doing anything to help bring the Coup Cabal to justice. – As we have repeatedly pointed out, Mr. Horowitz’s job is to investigate and provide cover for the bureaucracy that pays his salary. His internal role at DOJ is to “investigate” alleged wrongdoing among its employees and then to provide rationale arguing why that wrongdoing was nothing more than violations of internal policies, a simple lack of candor, innocent mishandling of documents, etc.

He might make the occasional criminal referrals targeting low-level functionaries – the Peter Strzoks and Lisa Pages of the world – but if you’re waiting for him to do the same where Jim Comey or Rod Rosenstein or Sally Yates are concerned, you are going to be highly disappointed when his long-awaited report on FISA abuse is released next week. So don’t hold your breath anticipating any real effort to bring the real bad actors in all of this to anything resembling justice coming from a career apparatchik like Horowitz.

In fact, the media supporters of the coup cabal have been working overtime this week to prop up Horowitz and mask the reality that his latest report is going to be just another basic white-washing of rampant DOJ corruption during the Obama years. A great example of this coordinated effort between the DOJ butt-coverers and their media supporters came recently from the New York Times, who else?:

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz put together a chart of all the mistakes he found the FBI made in the process of obtaining warrants to wiretap former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The list of “numerous” errors and omissions appears in a draft report containing the findings of Horowitz’s year-and-a-half investigation examining the DOJ’s and the FBI’s compliance with legal requirements and policies in applications filed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, according to the New York Times.

See, in the world of Michael Horowitz, even the most egregious abuse of the process or leaking of classified material or defrauding of the FISA courts is just a “mistake,” an “error” or an innocent “omission,” all to be explained away as quietly as possible in order to protect and preserve the institution. Why, he’s even going to provide a nifty chart to illustrate it for all of you visual learners out there. The bad actors might or might not be fired as punishment, and the occasional miscreant like Andrew McCabe might be stripped of his pension as a response to findings in one of these reports, but if you’re expecting Horowitz to provide any sort of justice in any real sense of that word, you are barking up the wrong tree.

As if to illustrate that point, the DOJ itself joined in the effort to prepare the public for this non-event report by issuing this public statement:

View image on Twitter

Appearing on Tick-Tock Hannity’s show last night, do-nothing Senator Lindsey Graham essentially recited the talking points in that statement:

“Be wary of the Washington Post and the New York Times reporting on what is coming up with Horowitz. They have been trying overtime to spin this thing to diminish its effect, to downplay it,” the South Carolina Republican said.

“I can tell you without any hesitation Attorney General Barr has every confidence in the world in Mr. Horowitz,” Graham added. “He believes that he has done a good job, a professional job, and he appreciates the work and the effort he has put into disclosing abuse at the Department of Justice.”

So basically, the message from the DOJ spokesperson du jour and Sen. Graham is to ignore all the media propoganda floating around, read the massive report for yourself (like that’s ever going to happen with 99% of the American public) and make your own judgments.

And then what? Graham says he plans to ask pointed questions of Horowitz when he appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee on December 11, two days after the report is made fully public. Oh, golly, Lindsey, do tell! Do you also plan to point your finger at him and say “tsk-tsk, tut-tut?”

Um, and then what? Is Graham or anyone else in the U.S. Senate going to do anything to demand any real justice? Not really, because they don’t have any power to do so, and probably no intention, either. They can write letters and do their own criminal referrals on the Comeys and Strzoks and McCabes and Pages and Bakers and all the other Cabal players, but as we have repeatedly seen, the professional snakes embeded at DOJ just toss them into the trash can and play the waiting game.

But what about William Barr and John Durham? What about their investigation? Well, as we’ve repeatedly noted, they are your only remaining hope of any real justice ever coming about on any of this. But here’s the deal: William Barr might only have another 12 months at DOJ. If the 2020 election goes the wrong way, he will be out of a job faster than Rod Rosenstein can sign off on a fraudulent FISA application.

Meanwhile, the Michael Horowitz’s of the world go on, remaining embeded within their safe, tidy, butt-covering jobs at the DOJ for as long as they want to hold them. William  Barr is a political appointee who serves at the pleasure of the President; Horowitz is a lifetime apparatchik who serves at his own pleasure and whose lone true function is the preservation of the institution that makes that possible.

For those few who do take the time to read it, Horowitz’s report will no doubt contain a huge amount of very damning information about the real bad actors in the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. But unless Barr and Durham decide to act on that information, it will all be long forgotten just a few months from now.

That’s reality.

That is all.

How the Coup Plotters Have Ensnared Themselves in a Trap of Their Own Making

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

I’m old enough to remember when MSNBC’s fake on-air talent was condemning others for spreading conspiracy theories. – There really are no depths to which MNSBC and CNN will not plumb in order to give Deep State enemies of the people a paid microphone on their fake news programs.

The latest hired contributor at MSNBC is the sleazy ex-U.S. attorney Andrew Weissman, otherwise known as the guy who really ran the Mueller Witch Hunt and wrote the Mueller Report. Appearing with fake host and former George W. Bush adviser, the truly demented Nicolle Wallace on Friday, Weissman made it clear that, once the current Democrat/media Ukraine narrative has crashed and burned in spectacularly failed fashion, the Deep State coup plotters plan to go right back to pushing their spectacularly failed Russia Collusion conspiracy theory.

Asked by Wallace about the alleged call between Ambassador Gordon Sondland and President Trump, which supposedly was placed on Sondland’s unsecured cell phone in a Kiev restaurant, Weissman speculated that it’s all part of a grand conspiracy by Mr. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to fix the 2020 election!

I swear I do not make this stuff up:

“You know that call is going to be monitored by the Russians… Do you care about the Russians having it?”

“Why weren’t the president and Ambassador Sondland worried about the fact that the Russians would undoubtedly in Ukraine be able to hear this conversation?” he then asked.

“If your thinking is ‘I don’t care because the Russians will be siding with me in the 2020 election,’ then you’re all on the same team,” the former Mueller prosecutor hypothesized.

So, there you have it, folks: The Democrats and their willing media co-conspirators signaling their plans for the next chapter in their never-ending coup d’etat efforts. No doubt they already have folks at Fusion GPS, Crowdstrike and Christopher Steele – along with some high-powered law firm through which they can launder all the money – signed to contracts to assist in the next effort to frame a President of the United States.

This latest revelation by one of the leading figures in the endless series of coup plots goes back to the question posed here at the Campaign Update on November 10: How Does the Never-ending Coup d’etat End?

Of course, the better question to ask is, does this never-ending coup d’etat effort ever end? The answer to that is obviously a resounding “NO.” It will just continue, morphing into the next false narrative even as the previous narrative crashes and burns, becoming increasingly shrill, careless and violent as time goes on and the plotters’ frustrations mount.

This is a game the Democrats can play with America’s very existence since they control 95% of the corrupt national news media, and it is a game they feel they must play since Donald Trump’s very presence in the office of the presidency threatens to expose and destroy the continued ability of the DC Swamp denizens to fleece the nation – and other nations, as Quid Pro Joe and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter blatantly did in Ukraine and China.

Make no mistake about this: Donald Trump is going to be re-elected next year in what is shaping up to become an epic electoral college landslide. He is going to be President of the United States of America for five more years, and the never-ending coup d’etat will continue for the duration, and even after he has left office.

The simple fact of the matter is that the coup plotters and their media co-conspirators have no choice now. They’ve come this far and completely exposed themselves to anyone who is paying attention. Even if the Democrats wanted to chuck it all and try to focus on actually doing real government stuff, they are completely bankrupt of any policy ideas that are not already proven failures.

Add that to this new reality: The Republicans are suddenly, finally starting to strike back. We now know the Horowitz Report, as timid and white-washing as it no doubt will be in its findings, will be released on December 9. We know that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham continue to expand the scope of their own investigation into the origins of the never-ending coup. And we know that Senate Republicans are gearing up to mount a long and aggressive Senate trial effort once the House sends over its inevitable baseless articles of impeachment, with even Lindsey Graham suddenly sending out letters and demanding all sorts of information from the State Department.

Thus, even if the Democrats wanted to bring the coup plot to a screeching halt, the inertia they’ve created with their Russia Collusion and Ukraine hoaxes now makes that impossible to achieve.

How does the never-ending coup end? It doesn’t, because the Democrats and their willing, corrupt media co-conspirators have ensnared themselves in a trap of their own making.

That is all.

William Barr Gives a Grand Speech – Now, About that Investigation…

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Attorney General William Barr delivered a hard-hitting speech at the Federalist Society’s National Lawyers Convention on Friday evening. – In the speech, the AG presented a vigorous defense of President Trump and his administration, and a pointed take-down of the Democrat-funded “resistance” and its repugnant, ongoing efforts to destroy the country from within.

It’s more than an hour long, but well worth your time to watch. Below is a video of the speech, followed by key outtakes from the transcript:

Outtakes (full transcript can be read here):

Unfortunately, over the past several decades, we have seen steady encroachment on Presidential authority by the other branches of government.  This process I think has substantially weakened the functioning of the Executive Branch, to the detriment of the Nation.  This evening, I would like to expand a bit on these themes.

One of the more amusing aspects of modern progressive polemic is their breathless attacks on the “unitary executive theory.”  They portray this as some new-fangled “theory” to justify Executive power of sweeping scope. In reality, the idea of the unitary executive does not go so much to the breadth of Presidential power.  Rather, the idea is that, whatever the Executive powers may be, they must be exercised under the President’s supervision.  This is not “new,” and it is not a “theory.”  It is a description of what the Framers unquestionably did in Article II of the Constitution.

So let me turn now to how the Executive is presently faring in these interbranch battles. I am concerned that the deck has become stacked against the Executive.  Since the mid-60s, there has been a steady grinding down of the Executive branch’s authority, that accelerated after Watergate.  More and more, the President’s ability to act in areas in which he has discretion has become smothered by the encroachments of the other branches.

Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called “The Resistance,” and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration.  Now, “resistance” is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power.  It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate.  This is a very dangerous – indeed incendiary – notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.  What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the “loyal opposition,” as opposing parties have done in the past, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.  

Congress has in recent years also largely abdicated its core function of legislating on the most pressing issues facing the national government.  They either decline to legislate on major questions or, if they do, punt the most difficult and critical issues by making broad delegations to a modern administrative state that they increasingly seek to insulate from Presidential control.

Of course, Congress’s effective withdrawal from the business of legislating leaves it with a lot of time for other pursuits.  And the pursuit of choice, particularly for the opposition party, has been to drown the Executive Branch with “oversight” demands for testimony and documents.  I do not deny that Congress has some implied authority to conduct oversight as an incident to its Legislative Power.  But the sheer volume of what we see today – the pursuit of scores of parallel “investigations” through an avalanche of subpoenas – is plainly designed to incapacitate the Executive Branch, and indeed is touted as such.

In recent years, we have seen substantial encroachment by Congress in the area of executive privilege.  The Executive Branch and the Supreme Court have long recognized that the need for confidentiality in Executive Branch decision-making necessarily means that some communications must remain off limits to Congress and the public.   There was a time when Congress respected this important principle as well.  But today, Congress is increasingly quick to dismiss good-faith attempts to protect Executive Branch equities, labeling such efforts “obstruction of Congress” and holding Cabinet Secretaries in contempt.

In recent years, we have seen substantial encroachment by Congress in the area of executive privilege.  The Executive Branch and the Supreme Court have long recognized that the need for confidentiality in Executive Branch decision-making necessarily means that some communications must remain off limits to Congress and the public.   There was a time when Congress respected this important principle as well.  But today, Congress is increasingly quick to dismiss good-faith attempts to protect Executive Branch equities, labeling such efforts “obstruction of Congress” and holding Cabinet Secretaries in contempt.

One of the ironies of today is that those who oppose this President constantly accuse this Administration of “shredding” constitutional norms and waging a war on the rule of law.  When I ask my friends on the other side, what exactly are you referring to?  I get vacuous stares, followed by sputtering about the Travel Ban or some such thing.  While the President has certainly thrown out the traditional Beltway playbook, he was upfront about that beforehand, and the people voted for him.  What I am talking about today are fundamental constitutional precepts.  The fact is that this Administration’s policy initiatives and proposed rules, including the Travel Ban, have transgressed neither constitutional, nor traditional, norms, and have been amply supported by the law and patiently litigated through the Court system to vindication.

Indeed, measures undertaken by this Administration seem a bit tame when compared to some of the unprecedented steps taken by the Obama Administration’s aggressive exercises of Executive power – such as, under its DACA program, refusing to enforce broad swathes of immigration law.

Conservatives, on the other hand, do not seek an earthly paradise.  We are interested in preserving over the long run the proper balance of freedom and order necessary for healthy development of natural civil society and individual human flourishing.  This means that we naturally test the propriety and wisdom of action under a “rule of law” standard.  The essence of this standard is to ask what the overall impact on society over the long run if the action we are taking, or principle we are applying, in a given circumstance was universalized – that is, would it be good for society over the long haul if this was done in all like circumstances?

For these reasons, conservatives tend to have more scruple over their political tactics and rarely feel that the ends justify the means.  And this is as it should be, but there is no getting around the fact that this puts conservatives at a disadvantage when facing progressive holy far, especially when doing so under the weight of a hyper-partisan media.

In essence, the Court has taken the rules that govern our domestic criminal justice process and carried them over and superimposed them on the Nation’s activities when it is engaged in armed conflict with foreign enemies.  This rides roughshod over a fundamental distinction that is integral to the Constitution and integral to the role played by the President in our system.

This is a very dangerous and indeed incendiary notion to import into the politics of a Democratic republic. The fact is, that, yes, while the president has certainly thrown out the traditional beltway playbook and punctilio, he was upfront about what he was going to do and the people decided that he was going to serve as president.

[End of Outtakes]

There is much, much more, but these outtakes highlight the essence of the speech, which is powerful, incredibly well-thought and well-drafted, and shows without doubt that Barr has a clear-eyed understanding of the war the disloyal, seditious left is waging on the foundations of the American Republic.

But at the end of the day, this is just a speech and these words, while great, are just words. They only will ultimately have real meaning if they are intended to serve as the prelude for the long-delayed Horowitz Report to be finally issued and for the investigation of U.S. Attorney John Durham to start bearing fruit in terms of public perp walks, indictments and most importantly of all, convictions involving the high Obama officials who created and led this ongoing coup d’etat.

How about it, Mr. Barr?

That is all.

James Comey is Moving to New Zealand, and Other Great News for America

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

Great news, everyone! James Comey is moving to New Zealand! –  The Nation’s Teenage Drama Queen and former FBI Director James Comey will be moving to New Zealand in November, 2020, after Donald Trump wins his inevitable re-election. That’s the promise the big, tall doofus made to MSNBC fake journalist Nicolle Wallace during a Saturday appearance at some minor event in Nashville:

James Comey: But we have something in common. And I said it when I sat here with the first question you asked. We have a set of values that are at the core of this country that hold this place together… Our leaders must reflect the glue that holds us together. They can’t be people who lie all the time. They just can’t. And I hope people see that’s true whether they are Republicans or Democrats.

Nicolle Wallace: What if he wins again?

James Comey: I will be, from my new home in New Zealand, but I still will believe in America.

So, we got that going for us, folks.

Of course, Mr. Comey didn’t say how he would make it all the way to New Zealand from his future cell in a federal maximum security prison. He probably has an escape plan that involves blending in with the drapes [think about it]. Regardless, we can be sure that in his weird mind, he is no doubt already there.

Speaking of people who lie all the time, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator is now lying about where he went to college:

Transcript:

“I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State. And I don’t wanna hear anything negative about Delaware State here – they’re my folks. But all kidding aside…but the fact is, HBCU’s are in trouble financially.”

As the hilarious Benny Johnson points out in a subsequent tweet, Joe Biden actually attended the University of Delaware, which is not an HBCU and most definitely not Delaware State.

Oh, hey, looks like our military bagged the leader of ISIS on Saturday. – People all over the Twitter world were wondering what in the hell was happening about 10:00 CT last night, after President Trump issued the following tweet:

What could it be? No one knew, and the President wasn’t telling, and still hadn’t told as of this writing early on Sunday morning.

But here’s a big clue: Reports began to circulate shortly after the President’s cryptic tweet that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the “leader” of ISIS, had been killed during a U.S. military raid in Syria. al-Baghdadi reportedly detonated a suicide vest as U.S. troops closed in on his position. So now this human piece of pond scum gets to go meet his promised 77 virgins, and boy, is he going to be surprised when he finds out what they really are.

Gosh, what a strange and unlikely coincidence this is. – Almost lost amid all the myriad Spygate developments on Friday was this little piece of extremely interesting news: Disgraced ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe quietly dropped his “wrongful termination” lawsuit that he had laughably filed a couple of months ago.

Quite the coincidence that that happens less than 24 hours after the country learned that the Barr/Durham administrative investigation had become a full-fledged criminal probe.

Ok, we all know that this is no coincidence at all. And that is great news for America.

That is all.

James Baker Flips and Sydney Powell Lowers the Boom

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.

[End]

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.

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.

Italian Prime Minister Confirms Spygate Meetings With William Barr and John Durham

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Katherine Herridge reported at mid-day on Wednesday that Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte testified under oath that he had approved meetings between Italian Intelligence agents and U.S. Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham. 

Here is a clip of Herridge’s report (transcript follows below):

 

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here is the transcript:

Host Harris Faulkner: U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe has now expanded based on information uncovered in Rome. And we are getting new information about that visit by Attorney General William Barr. Katherine Herridge has the latest.

Katherine Herridge: Our correspondent Amy Kellogg, who is based in Italy has confirmed that in the last few the Italian prime minister has testified to parliament that he did permit the meeting with the attorney General with Italian Intelligence on the subject of the Russia investigation, and he described this move as “the correct decision, and that everything was arranged through proper diplomatic channels.”

The other piece of information we are getting from Italy is that these meetings occurred August 15 and September 27 in Rome.  And that dovetails with some new information we have had here at Fox News, which is that during one of these trips, William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham gathered new evidence and that it was on that basis that they expanded the investigation into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 “Russia Collusion” case.

My contacts are report that Durham is “very interested to question” the former Director of National Intelligence, that’s the nation’s top spy chief, James Clapper, as well as the former CIA Director, John Brennan, who recently dismissed the idea.

[Clip of a very nervous Brennan being interviewed on MSNBC on Oct. 3 here]

The reason this matters, Harris, is that it shows that the Durham investigation is truly global in nature, and it dovetails with our reporting that these trips to Rome have been very consequential for that investigation. This has now been confirmed by the Italian Prime Minister under oath with parliamentary testimony.

This report by Herridge, one of the few remaining real journalists still working in our otherwise fake national news media today, confirms previous rumors and reporting that Barr and Durham decided to expand their Spygate investigation based on information they’ve obtained from multiple overseas trips to Italy, Australia, London and Ukraine.

It also helps to explain why the leaders of the Coup Cabal, including Clapper and Brennan, have been nervously planting stories with eagerly-cooperating fake news outlets like the New York Times, CNN and Politico over the past several days.

The more nervous these treasonous skunks are, the better for America.

That is all.

Durham Will Interview Brennan – Explains This Week’s Deep State Media Push

Today’s Campaign Update, PART III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Suddenly, it all becomes clear. – News broke on Tuesday that, consistent with earlier rumors, U.S. Attorney John Durham has formally requested an interview with Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan, and plans to also interview Obama-era Director of National Intelligence James Clapper:

This news explains why the Usual Suspects in the fake news media have been putting on a full court fake news press in their support of their Deep State heroes. As reported previously here, Saturday was the New York Times’ day to do the toadying, Sunday was NBC’s day, and Tuesday was Politico’s day in the shilling well.

Brennan himself had obviously gotten wind of Durham’s intentions early this month, as he nervously speculated on October 3 to MSCIA’s fake host Nicolle Wallace that he might well have to testify to Durham and his investigators:

Check out that body language. That is one very nervous liar right there.

Brennan has already been revealed to have lied multiple times when he testified along with Comey and Clapper before he House Intelligence Committee back in 2017, but perjury should be the least of the issues Durham will want to explore with the former chief spy.

The Saturday deep state narrative promotion piece by the NYTimes noted that, while Durham has already interviewed “dozens” of current and former Obama officials during the course of his investigation, he had yet to question the principles who we know organized and executed the effort to fix the 2016 election and then to remove a sitting President via a coup d’etat.

Today’s news proves that he’s getting around now to questioning the targets.

Cool.

That is all.

“This is Gonna be a Bang-Bang Couple of Weeks” – Joe diGenova

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In case you missed it, take 10 minutes out of your day to watch the clip below. – Laura Ingraham had Rudy Giuliani and Joe diGenova on together for a 9 minute segment Tuesday night, and both men were very blunt in their assessments of the sordid behavior of Nancy Pelosi and her House Circus Clown caucus, the status of the fake impeachment process, and of the Barr/Durham investigation, among several other topics.

Here’s the clip:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here are some key quotes from Giuliani and diGenova:

Giuliani: “I would love to testify [before the House Intel Committee], give me a half hour to point out  ‘Biden inc.’. Four decades of crime. I’d love to do it.”

Giuliani: [After seeing clip of Cory Booker saying he’d love to question Giuliani if he testifies before Senate Judiciary Committee] “I have to go into the arena with Spartacus? Gee, I don’t know if I could handle it. I mean, he’s a really tough guy. I don’t know. Man, he really scares me.

“He was a terrible mayor. I was a mayor of a city [New York] and I turned it around. He was a mayor and the city [Newark] had more crime when he left than when he came in.”

diGenova: “This is why this notion that you are going to keep these witnesses identities secret, while they are trying to nullify an election, commit regicide, and remove a president of the United States is ludicrous. Everybody knows that in all likelihood, Fusion GPS was involved with this person, this ‘anonymous informant’ – I refuse to call him a whistleblower because he is not a whistleblower under the law – and everybody knows that there is a former FBI agent[!] who worked with this whistleblower, as he is now called.

“So, we’re going to learn a lot about the fact that this person never wrote this document, this was drafted by a committee of political consultants and researchers and people affiliated with the Democrat National Committee.

Giuliani: “Adam Schiff is a witness. You can’t preside over a hearing where you’re a witness. Also, how can it be possible that we can’t test the credibility of these witnesses? You can’t come to a conclusion unless you can test credibility. For example, this law firm – Campos, Dampos or whatever the name of it is – was offering money to people. They were offering help with your mortgage, expenses, they were bribing the witnesses to come forward. You don’t think I’d want to cross examine the witness with that?”

diGenova: “Here’s the deal. This [IC] Inspector General is a moron. When he wrote that analysis he was wrong about the law, this was not a ‘matter of grave concern,’ he got slapped down so badly by the office of legal counsel when they analyzed the facts. This guy, Michael Atkinson, is a moron. There is no way around how bad a job he did. He’s an embarrassment to the inspector general cadre.”

Giuliani: “I’d just like to explain to ‘little Schiff’ that propounding and presenting a false narrative of someone’s guilt is called obstructing justice. He did it. He did it right in front of the American people, he did it for about 20 minutes. And he did it again, earlier, when he said he had evidence of ‘Russia collusion’. Where’s your evidence, Schiff? You’re a liar – I’m calling you out as a liar. Where’s your evidence?”

diGenova: “If it weren’t for double standards, Democrats would have no standards at all. This is just insanity…that tape of Schiff, just watching him, bug-eyed, performing like a loon, and watching him pronounce these nostrums that are stupid and unsupportable legally, this is the chairman of a major committee, and Pelosi, you know, trying to keep her dentures in her mouth while she’s talking to him, is just there, abiding by this, it’s outrageous.”

Giuliani: “And it would be funny if it wasn’t such a horrible, horrible trashing of our constitution.”

diGenova: [Asked how confident he is that big things are coming from IG Horowitz’s report and the Barr/Durham investigation] “This is gonna be a bang-bang couple of weeks.”

There’s much more in there, so please watch the whole thing. The fun is just beginning.

That is all.
