DOJ Spokeswoman: Expect a Durham “Report” By The End Of Summer…or not

DOJ Spokeswoman Kerri Kupec was on Fox News with Bill Hemmer this afternoon. During the course of her interview, she told Hemmer that her bosses expect a “report” from U.S Attorney John Durham and his investigation of ObamaGate by the “end of summer.” Or…maybe not.

Here’s a clip, followed by a transcript:

Transcript:

Hemmer: John Durham – when will there be news on that?

Kupec: Well, we hope to see a report by the end of summer. Obviously, this is a criminal investigation – the goal is not a report, it’s a criminal investigation. But certainly, there is a story to be told there. The American people deserve resolution, and frankly, justice deserves resolution. Justice needs to be restored, and I think that report is going to be really pivotal to that one-tiered system of justice. [crosstalk]

Hemmer: You say by the end of the summer? Is that a guarantee?

Kupec: There are no guarantees in life, but we certainly hope to see one by the end of the summer.

Hemmer: Can you guarantee pre-election, Kerri?

Kupec: Bill, I will just tell you this: We are hopeful, and we expect to see a report by the end of summer.

Hemmer: Thanks for coming on today.

[End]

I like Kerri Kupec. She is really good at her job and a credit to the institution of the DOJ. That having been said, this interview does not inspire confidence in any way, shape or form. Do we “hope” to see a report by the end of summer, or do we “expect” to see said report? Or are we hopeful and expect to see such a report, but we aren’t sure when it will or will not come?

And what the hell is a report supposed to do for us in any event? As Kupec said herself, Durham is running a criminal investigation here – the only reports we need to see are those on national television reporting on indictments with very visible and public perp walks taking place in the background as the talking head drones on.

Reports are what Michael Horowitz does. They are what congressional committees do. U.S. freaking attorneys prosecute cases. They convene grand juries and seek indictments, and if they want that damn grand jury to indict a damn ham sandwich they had better damn well be able to get that damn indictment.

I do not want to see any tedious report from John Durham. I want to see indictments and perp walks and witnesses testifying and James Comey and John Durham crying and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page being shipped off to separate federal prisons.

Please, Ms. Kupec, go back to the DOJ, get your talking points straight, and stick to the story. At least give us that. We are not stupid children and deserve better than this.

That is all.

Watch as Texas Cong. Michael McCaul Lays Waste to Adam Schiff

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

Here is a Republican House member who is unafraid to speak the truth. – Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, who has represented Texas’s 10th congressional district since 2005, appeared this morning on Fox News for an interview with Bill Hemmer. This interview is well worth the watch just because of who McCaul happens to be.

As you watch the clip below, and/or read the transcript that follows, keep in mind that Rep. McCaul is a man who is currently the ranking GOP member on the House Homeland Security Committee. From 2012 through 2018, McCaul served as the Chairman of that committee. This is a man who knows where all the bodies are buried, and who has no naivete about what Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan are really up to with their fake impeachment scam. First, here’s the clip:

For those of you who, like me, still like to read stuff, here is a transcript of this clip:

Hemmer: You were in that deposition yesterday. I know you’re not gonna say a lot – did Adam Schiff shut down your Republican colleagues in their questioning of the witness or not?

McCaul: Yeah, we haven’t objected to any of their questioning. On the other hand, Adam Schiff continues to shut down Republicans’ lines of questioning. On important issues, in terms of who was privy to the phone call, who was with the whistleblower – anything close to the whistleblower gets shut down.

I think the whistleblower is probably the most important witness, because it’s one person in Washington who launched this entire impeachment inquiry, and yet we have no access to him, we can’t talk to him, we don’t know who he is, and he won’t testify.

Hemmer: So, what’s the strategy behind Adam Schiff trying to keep you from answering those questions you just laid out?

McCaul: I have my own thoughts about that. [crosstalk] I personally think that what’s come out in the press, that there were conversations between Adam Schiff and his staff and the whistleblower, and that this complaint was all a contrived, you know, concocted event that took place to move forward with impeachment proceedings.

Hemmer: You say ‘contrived’ and ‘concocted’? What was contrived and concocted?

McCaul: Complicit. In other words…

Hemmer: In what way? Just be specific. This is, this is of the highest import here. He was complicit in what, sir?

McCaul: I think they were complicit in working with the whistleblower to come forward with his complaint and start this entire impeachment inquiry. I think that’s why Adam Schiff is so protective of the whistleblower, because he is concerned about the truth that will come out if we get access to him.

Hemmer:  Uh, the suggestion there is that the whistleblower ultimately, or even the witnesses along the line may not be that credible in the end. [Noooooo…you think?] Is that the suggestion you’re offering now?

McCaul: The best evidence is the phone call itself, which I don’t think is worthy of an impeachment proceeding. But I, my theory is that Adam Schiff and his staff had access to the whistleblower, and were complicit with this complaint being filed, which started this entire charade, this entire impeachment inquiry.

[End]

Folks, Michael McCaul is not a guy who just spouts off random accusations and theories. Nor is he one of the GOP’s rabble rousers in the house. McCaul is a guy who is always very careful and measured in this public statements.

When he publicly says that it is “my theory” that Schiff and his staff basically put the whistleblower up to it in order to create fake grounds for this impeachment scam, it’s because he basically knows this to be the case.

This little 2:18 interview is a signal that even the most careful and self-restrained members of the GOP house caucus have grown weary of Shiff’s and Pelosi’s scam and have not been moved in any way by their parade of fake whistleblowers and partisan hack witnesses.

A very good sign. Maybe even a key inflection point.

That is all.
