We Owe a Debt of Gratitude to Sundance at TheConservativeTreehouse

Everyone should go to TheConservativeTreehouse.com and read this piece put up by Sundance last night, detailing his briefing of lead investigator for John Durham, William Aldenberg.

No one outside of the Department of Justice knew Aldenberg’s identity as Durham’s lead investigator until Sundance revealed his name a few days ago. That had been kept secret, as has the entirety of Durham’s investigation and findings thus far.

Now, we know, thanks to Sundance’s determination and perseverance.

I don’t know who Sundance is, and frankly do not care. All I need to know about him is that he has worked tirelessly over the past four years to expose the Obama-era plot by corrupt officials within the intelligence community, the FBI and the DOJ to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, and then to expose the active coup d’etat engaged in by Obama holdovers and the Mueller Special Counsel team from 2017 through early 2019, when William Barr became Attorney General and shut that effort down for good.

Sundance’s information is always grounded in public information, always cited back to its source and thus has always been completely at odds with the seditious “Russia Collusion” that has been pushed by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media.

Not being content to merely expose the details of this still-active coup d’etat effort to his readers, Sundance determined to convey it all to key officials within the federal government in order to ensure that a) they have the full story, and b) they know that we know the truth.

Over the past several weeks, Sundance has, no doubt at great personal jeopardy, managed to meet with and brief a series of key officials within congress, the executive branch, and finally, the lead investigator for Durham himself. With his briefings complete, the officials who received them now have no real cover, no plausible way to claim they just didn’t know.

And even better, as Sundance points out, they all know that we know the truth.

So, take the time to read this terrific summary by Sundance today, and when you’re done, leave a comment thanking this great American for having the courage and persistence to lay it all out to the right people.

That is all.

Did Durham Just Lure Brennan into a Perjury Trap?

Welcome to your perjury trap, Mr. Brennan. – In a very interesting piece at RedState.com, a former prosecutor who writes under the pen name “Shipwreckedcrew” lays out a strong argument detailing his belief that Friday’s 8-hour-long interview of former Obama CIA Director John Brennan by U.S. Attorney John Durham and his investigators amounted to a classic perjury trap by the Department of Justice.

The author points to the fact that, instead of holding the interview at the more logical location at DOJ headquarters or the Hoover Building in Washington, DC, Durham chose to conduct it at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia:

Second, conducting the interview at the CIA facility is an interesting decision.  Why not question him at DOJ or FBI HQ?  The CIA is not a law enforcement agency.  John Brennan no longer works for the CIA.  Any CIA records that may have been needed over the course of the interview could have been made available in a secured facility at both those locations.

But that “records” excuse may have been the very justification given for the selection of the CIA HQ as the location for the interview.

DOJ and the FBI HQ are in Washington DC.  CIA Headquarters is in Langley, Virginia.

If you are geographically challenged, you can read the distinction as “United States District Court for the District of Columbia” v. “United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.”  If John Brennan offered any false answers to the investigators during the interview, the venue for that “false statement” crime is in the EDVA, not in DC federal court.

[End]

Pretty clever, if true. This would solve Durham’s conundrum about trying to get a conviction of Brennan from DC jury, which would be overwhelmingly made up of Democrats.

The former prosecutor also points to the interesting fact that Brennan chose to speak through his lawyer, Nick Shapiro, in a written statement, rather than just blast stuff out on his Twitter account, as he does on a regular basis:

First, it’s not Brennan’s statement.  Shapiro issued the statement to Obama Administration scribe Natasha Bertrand at Politico — guaranteed to dutifully publish anything requested of her by a former Obama era intelligence official now living in fear.  Shapiro then posted a string of eight Tweets on Twitter with the same text.

Both are devoid of any words actually spoken by Brennan — there are no quotations — nor is there any support offered for Shapiro’s claims by anyone actually in the room, such as Brennan’s attorneys.

Since when has Brennan been shy about saying anything on Twitter?  Why would Brennan go “third person” and have his thoughts about the interview expressed only in the words of someone else?  The most obvious reason is the statements are not going to be exactly accurate.  Running them through a third person builds in a level of “deniability” on Brennan’s part.

[End]

As I pointed out yesterday, Brennan has spent his entire adult life lying for a living and protecting himself from being held accountable for those lies by building walls of plausible deniability. Here, we see that lifelong habit in action.

The author also expands at length on the meaning of Shapiro’s claim that Brennan is not a “target” of the Durham investigation at this time. Here is a key passage:

So if you are not a “target” — meaning there isn’t sufficient evidence at this time to charge you with a crime — then by default you are a “witness.”

But “witnesses” can, and often do talk themselves into being “targets” during such interviews.  That was the purpose of the interview, Mr. Brennan, not because you have some wonderful insights to provide Mr. Durham and his investigators to make their job easier.

One important distinction between “target” and “witness” that is not well understood, but might be in play here, is that it is against DOJ policy to issue a grand jury subpoena to someone who is already a “target”.

A grand jury subpoena is a court order, under threat of contempt, to appear and answer questions under oath without the presence of counsel.  If a person is already a “Target”, the subpoena intrudes upon their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and to be represented by counsel while undergoing “custodial” interrogation — they are under subpoena after all.  Witnesses before the grand jury are allowed to assert their Fifth Amendment right, but it forces them to assert that right before the grand jurors considering charges against them.  The government is not allowed to call a criminal defendant to take the stand in his trial and force him to assert his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent in front of the jury.  It is deemed prejudicial, and suggest to the jury that the defendant has something to hide.  The same principle applies to calling a “Target” in front of a grand jury and forcing them to assert their right to remain silent in front of the grand jurors without counsel present.

[End]

Oh. Again, as I pointed out yesterday, just because someone is not a “target” of an investigation today does not mean he will not become a “target” of that investigation tomorrow.

Isn’t all of that interesting?

There is much more in this piece, and you would to well to go read it in its entirety.

Now, this analysis may or may not be accurate. But if it is accurate, it is fair to point out that it would be entirely consistent with common DOJ practice in this kind of an investigation. These are the kinds of tactics that U.S. attorneys and other prosecutors deploy all the time.

What we have seen from both Durham and William Barr over the past year and a half is a consistent dedication to conducting this and other DOJ functions strictly by the book. Durham’s investigation has not employed the Gestapo-like strong-arm tactics or serial leaking of misleading or false information to the media, like we saw from the Mueller special counsel outfit.

Take it for what it’s worth, but this take on Friday’s meeting would be exactly the kind of thing we would expect to see from a by-the-book prosecutor like John Durham.

Durham and Barr Snag a Small Fish in an Ocean of Coup Cabal Sharks

“That’s just the beginning, I would imagine. This… what happened should never happen again,” President Trump said at a White House briefing Friday afternoon. “You’ll be hearing more.”

Durham’s “development” was a bigger deal than Barr indicated. – The guilty plea by ex-FBI/Mueller special counsel lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was not really surprising, but it is a big deal nonetheless, as it represents the first of what will likely become a series of ObamaGate dominoes to topple in the weeks to come.

In an interview with Captain Tick-Tock, Sean Hannity Thursday, Attorney General William Barr indicated that there would be a “development” in the John Durham investigation on Friday, but that it would not be “earth-shaking.” As is generally the case with Mr. Barr, that description turned out to be 100% accurate.

Clinesmith plead guilty to “making a false statement” to DOJ investigators about having altered an email about Carter Page in a manner that changed its entire meaning. Page had told investigators was a source for the CIA, and Clinesmith altered the email to say he was “not” a CIA source in order to support an FBI application for the third FISA warrant to spy on Mr. Page, which was executed in July, 2017.

Disturbingly, Clinesmith was assigned to the FBI’s National Security Division during 2016. He is an obviously leftist radical who bragged to colleagues about having played a part in the FBI’s role in trying to tilt the election towards Hillary Clinton, and to be working to “destroy the Republic.” Following Trump’s victory in 2016, Clinesmith, identified as “Attorney 2” in the Horowitz report, had this exchange with that fellow FBI lawyer:

Attorney 2: “I am numb.”

Other employee not involved in midyear investigation: “I can’t stop crying.”

Attorney 2: “That makes me even more sad.”

Employee “Like, what happened? You promised me this wouldn’t happen. YOU PROMISED…”

Attorney 2: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”

Employee: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered. The FBI’s influence.”

Attorney 2: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum.”

Employee: “That is not so….”

Attorney 2: “I’m just devastated. I can’t wait until I can leave today and just shut off the world for the next four days…I just can’t imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone. Who knows if the rhetoric about deporting people, walls and crap is true. I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost, they have to deal with an incumbent in 4 years. We have to fight this again. Also Pence is stupid.”

Attorney 2: “And it’s just hard not to feel like the FBI caused some of this. It was razor thin in some states. Plus my god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff. So who knows if that breaks to him, what he is going to do.”

[End]

Clinesmith’s obvious hatred for President Trump and the American republic obviously made him the perfect FBI lawyer to be detailed over the Mueller Special Counsel probe when it got started in May 2017, and he was in that role, working directly with lead Mueller henchman Andrew Weissman, when he altered the email in question.

It’s important to remember that Clinesmith’s wrongdoing took place on the watch of Christopher Wray, not James Comey. It also took place under the watch of Rod Rosenstein after AG Jeff Sessions had recused himself. Rosenstein and Weissman were basically running the entire Department of Justice from May, 2017 through January, 2019, when William Barr came into the AG’s job.

Clinesmith was far from the only FBI employee who was involved in the attempted coup d’etat targeting President Trump. The Horowitz report named no fewer than five such skunks who brought disgrace on themselves during this sorry episode in U.S. history.

Thus, Clinesmith’s guilty plea in and of itself was not especially earth-shaking. But the way in which its thread is likely to reverberate throughout the entire apparatus of the FBI/DOJ coup cabal that existed during 2016 and 2017 is likely to be.

It’s key to note that, in his interview with Hannity, Barr also said that Durham’s efforts would not be delayed by political considerations over the upcoming election, and that there would be more to come from him soon. As I noted above, Barr’s public statements have a way of being proven true.

Stay tuned. The fun is just beginning, and payback is going to be hell.

Why the Flynn Win and Strzok Notes are Major Obamagate Developments

Wednesday was a momentous day for anyone who cares about the rule of law and the future of the country. Which of course means that the corrupt political activists who infest our national news media have no clue about any of it, and the Democrat politicians and RINOs in Washington DC are scared to death, because they do understand, but hate it.

It wasn’t just because General Mike Flynn and his kickass lawyer Sidney Powell partially won their appeal for a writ of mandamus before the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, although that was a big part of it. The other big deal – perhaps even bigger in terms of the future of the country – was the release of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok’s notes from a meeting held on January 4, 2017 at the White House.

Let’s work with the Court of Appeals decision first. People need to understand what an incredibly rare thing it is in our country these days for any federal appellate court to slap down a federal judge as the completely out of control Emmet Sullivan was slapped down yesterday. A writ of mandamus is a step a defense lawyer takes only as a last resort, when the trial judge in their case has gone so far outside the bounds of the prevailing law that it has become impossible for their client to receive a fair trial in the court.

That reality is why so many expert observers were predicting that Powell’s request would be rejected, which would have allowed Judge Sullivan to keep stringing this case out past Election Day in November, which we now clearly see has been his goal all along. While the 3-judge appeals panel did not completely remove the case from Sullivan’s court, it did order him to dismiss ex-federal judge John Gleeson, who he had hired at taxpayer expense to improperly intervene in the case, and to dismiss the case outright, as the Department of Justice moved to do many weeks ago.

As we pointed out yesterday, Sullivan still has the option of requesting an en banc hearing before the full appeals court panel, but doing that poses very high risks for the future of his already damaged career. Regardless, yesterday’s order by the 3-judge panel preserves the separation of powers under the constitution, and will forever be a stain on Sullivan’s reputation, which had been pretty solid before his gross misconduct of this case. The decision is a huge win for the preservation of the rule of law in this country.

Strzok’s notes are just as important for one single reason: They provide a contemporary record that directly implicates both Joe Biden and Barack Obama as willing and active participants in Obamagate, providing strategic direction for the coup cabal.

The first thing to understand is that that January 4 meeting has not previously been noted as being important in any real way. The second thing to note is that Strzok himself was not in the meeting – his notes are apparently from a meeting he had later in the day with FBI Director James Comey.

Image

In that meeting, Obama, Biden and Comey (it is unknown if there were other participants) were discussing how to proceed vis a vis Flynn, who we now understand was a big target of Obama all along. Remember, when Trump met with Obama two days after the 2016 election, Trump came away from that meeting stunned that the one and only foreign policy matter Obama brought up was an admonition that Trump should avoid hiring General Flynn. I discussed the reasons why Obama was so worried about Flynn in that piece yesterday.

Here’s an excerpt:

Because, remember: Flynn knows where all of the bodies are buried here. This case was never about “Russia Collusion”; it never had anything to do with any real concerns about Flynn’s calls during the transition with Russian Ambassador Kysliak; it never had anything to do with any of the abject nonsense fantasy narratives that the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies have been pushing on the public since 2017.

This case was about protecting the dirty secrets behind Obama’s despicable deal with Iran, which, if left in place would have ensured Iran became the preeminent power in the Middle East, one armed with nuclear weapons. Flynn was fired by Obama in 2014 from his position as Director of Defense Intelligence because he raised objections regarding the negotiations over that deal, and that is why Obama/Biden and other high Obama officials could not stomach the thought of Flynn serving as National Security Advisor.

That’s why Flynn became the target of what we know beyond any doubt now was a blatant effort to frame him by the FBI; it is why he was targeted by American Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his enabler, Rod Rosenstein to begin with; and it is why Judge Sullivan has spent the past three years passing on at least half a dozen previous opportunities to dismiss this case and tolerating an unending stream of prosecutorial malfeasance in his courtroom.

[End]

In that January 4 meeting, it is obvious that Obama and Biden – who remember, actually unmasked General Flynn personally in early December, 2016 – remain very concerned about Flynn and all he knows. We see Biden himself become the first person to raise the idea of framing Flynn by using the Logan Act, an archaic relic of law under which no American citizen has ever been prosecuted. That’s how thin a reed these desperate people were pulling here.

We then have Comey telling Obama and Biden that Flynn’s calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak are “legit,” i.e., not really fit for pursuit under the Logan Act. Regardless, we next see Obama, then the President of the United States, instructing the Director of the FBI to “look at this”, i.e., trying to build a case under the Logan Act, and to “have the right people on it.”

In January 2017, who were the “right people” at the FBI to have on an effort to frame a high incoming official in the Trump Administration? Why, you’d start with Peter Strzok, of course, since by then Strzok had already led efforts to fake the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server, led the illegal spying effort – “Crossfire Hurricane” – on the Trump campaign and transition team, and to concoct false rationale to defraud the FISA court. Which is why the first thing Comey did when he got back to the Hoover Building was call Strzok – and perhaps Strzok’s bosses, Andrew McCabe and Bill Priestap – into a meeting to do a download.

Those notes, and that January 4 meeting, are a big, fat hairy deal, folks. Assuming John Durham and William Barr are really planning to execute some real justice related to Obamagate, those notes will make it very hard for them to continue to pretend that Biden and Obama themselves are above scrutiny. Once his case has been fully dismissed and he is able to speak freely, we can expect Flynn to make doing that even harder still.

It was a coup d’etat on American soil, folks, led and planned by Obama and Biden. I’ve been telling you this since mid-2017, and here we are.

As I always like to tell skeptical people: A “conspiracy theory” is not a “theory” when it is standing right in front of you slapping you in your stupid face. This one has been slapping us all for a long, long time.

Despite DC Circuit Order to Dismiss, Flynn’s Ordeal is not Over Yet

Everyone needs to cool their heels on this Flynn dismissal order for a bit. While we are all very happy that the three-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals ordered District Judge Emmet Sullivan to end his abusive treatment of General Flynn in its order Wednesday, it is a tad too soon to just assume Sullivan will simply accede to the order and dismiss the case. General Flynn himself is on with Rush Limbaugh confirming this is the case as I write this, in fact.

Sullivan is clearly a tool of the deep state, and we must remember why he has worked so hard to string this case out for years now when any righteous, ethical judge would have tossed it out of court in a summary judgment in 2018. Sullivan’s goal is the same as the deep state’s goal – to keep this case alive, and by extension keep Flynn from telling all he knows, until after November 3.

Because, remember: Flynn knows where all of the bodies are buried here. This case was never about “Russia Collusion”; it never had anything to do with any real concerns about Flynn’s calls during the transition with Russian Ambassador Kysliak; it never had anything to do with any of the abject nonsense fantasy narratives that the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies have been pushing on the public since 2017.

This case was about protecting the dirty secrets behind Obama’s despicable deal with Iran, which, if left in place would have ensured Iran became the preeminent power in the Middle East, one armed with nuclear weapons. Flynn was fired by Obama in 2014 from his position as Director of Defense Intelligence because he raised objections regarding the negotiations over that deal, and that is why Obama/Biden and other high Obama officials could not stomach the thought of Flynn serving as National Security Advisor.

That’s why Flynn became the target of what we know beyond any doubt now was a blatant effort to frame him by the FBI; it is why he was targeted by American Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his enabler, Rod Rosenstein to begin with; and it is why Judge Sullivan has spent the past three years passing on at least half a dozen previous opportunities to dismiss this case and tolerating an unending stream of prosecutorial malfeasance in his courtroom.

The bad news here is that Sullivan is either hopelessly corrupt or – more likely – hopelessly compromised, and that he is not yet out of bullets to fire, despite the ruling by he Appeals court today. The Judge could obviously string this thing out for at least another month or two simply by demanding an en banc hearing before the full membership of the DC Circuit. While the Circuit would not be obligated to grant such a motion by the Judge, fellow deep state skunks on that body would certainly be able to delay any final decision for weeks while the corrupt news media conducted a pressure campaign.

With Peter Strzok’s notes from a January 4, 2017 meeting at the White House out today and now directly implicating both Joe Biden and Barack Obama in the attempt to entrap and frame Flynn, the very last thing the coup plotters want to see now is an exonerated Mike Flynn out doing media interviews and finally, at long last, talking about everything he knows.

My most fervent wish here is that I may have completely misjudged Sullivan in this instance. Instead of being a compromised tool of the deep state coup cabal, maybe he is simply a power-mad lifetime Federal Judge who has simply lost his way and all sight of what real, actual justice looks like. If the latter is the case, then perhaps he will take today’s ruling as any rational person would do and cut his losses here.

But if I am right about him, and he really is compromised and/or hopelessly corrupt, then we should expect him to keep firing every shot he has until the day comes when he finally, at long last, runs out of bullets to fire.

BOOM: DC Circuit Court Orders Emmet Sullivan To Dismiss Flynn Persecution

This just came across the wires – will have an update later in the day.

A federal appeals court on Wednesday ordered a judge to grant the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) unusual move to drop charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

A three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals approved Flynn’s petition to intervene in the case after a district court judge had tapped an outside counsel to argue against the DOJ’s move.

Here is the text of the order from the 2-1 decision by the 3-judge panel:

“ORDERED that Flynn’s petition for a writ of mandamus be granted in part; the District Court is directed to grant the government’s Rule 48(a) motion to dismiss; and the District Court’s order appointing an amicus is hereby vacated as moot, in accordance with the opinion of the court filed herein this date,” the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled on Wednesday.

Then there’s this… – New notes taken by Peter Strzok on January 4, 2017 have just been made public, and they directly implicate both Biden and Obama in the framing of Flynn:

More coming later…

Wednesday News Roundup: Fauci Follies, Rioters Give Notice, and Barr Knows it was a Coup

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Stocks rose again on Tuesday, with the NASDAQ achieving its 21st record-high closing level of 2021. Even better, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that U.S. housing sales leapt by a whopping 16.6% from April to May, and that May’s level of sales was 12.3% higher than in May 2019. This is what the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the nation’s news media want to destroy.

Don’t expect there to be a vaccine for the Wuhan Virus, folks. – Students of strategic communications will understand that Dr. Anthony Fauci made that pretty clear in testimony to congress yesterday. Look carefully at the statement he made there:

“I still think there is a reasonably good chance that by the very beginning of 2021, that if we’re going to have a vaccine, that we will have it by then,” he said.

Now, NBC, Vox.com and other leftist fake news outlets reported on that in a way that makes it sound as if Fauci is saying we will have a vaccine by the end of this year. But is that what he really said there?

Break that carefully worded, pre-prepared statement down: “I still think…” “there is a reasonably good chance…” “if we’re going to have a vaccine…” “we will have it by then.”

So, Fauci “thinks” – he doesn’t feel confident, he isn’t sure – “there is a reasonably good chance” – define “reasonably” please – “IF we’re going to have a vaccine” – not “when” – “we will have it by then.” That’s a lot of weasel words in one sentence, folks.

That statement does not convey confidence. In fact, it conveys that the speaker has a tremendous amount of uncertainty, and perhaps even a knowledge that he really doesn’t believe we will have a vaccine – at least not an effective one – at all. So he feels the need to use this highly-qualified language in order to avoid being accused of lying later. Which, given Fauci’s track record of never having found an effective vaccine for any previous virus during his 40 year career, makes complete sense.

If you’ve been thinking that it wouldn’t be any big deal to just shut everything down again until the first of the year when Fauci and Bill Gates will presumably deliver unto us a miracle cure, you might want to think again.

The American Taliban is now putting out meeting minders. – A group of Antifa/BLM agitators gave  the U.S. Park Police and other federal law enforcement agencies a head’s up yesterday, literally announcing to the world that they plan to topple the Emancipation Monument in Washington D.C.’s Lincoln Park at 7:00 on Thursday. That’s Eastern Time, for all you folks at the FBI.

Criticism has constantly surrounded the memorial, pictured above, because of the way in which it depicts Lincoln towering over a freed person kneeling on the ground with him looking up. Below the work 'emancipation's is written

From a report in the Daily Mail:

President Trump called on Congress to act Tuesday night after protesters in Washington D.C. were seen burning an American flag.

The president branded the demonstrators ‘lowlifes’, adding that it ‘should be stopped’.

His criticism came after protesters pledged to tear down Lincoln’s Emancipation Memorial in the Capitol, vowing to return to Lincoln Park Thursday night to topple the controversial statue.

Organizers of the protest said they would not be working with the police and would achieve change ‘by any means necessary’ as they crowded near the 150-year-old statue paid for by former enslaved people.

Although paid for by former slaves, the Emancipation Memorial is criticized as it was designed by white people and depicts a former slave in a subservient position to Lincoln.

[End]

Given that we can be certain that DC Mayor Muriel Bowser will not lift a finger to preserve this memorial paid for by freed slaves, the ball here is entirely in the court of President Donald Trump and the federal Park Police. At least they know when to show up.

 

Hey, those mail-in ballots are fine – no potential for fraud here at all. You can trust those Democrats to keep everything on the up and up. Nothing to see here, er, um, well…

Body camera footage? What body camera footage? – Speaking of trusting Democrats to keep things on the up and up…

John Solomon at JustTheNews.com has an interesting piece this morning. – Yeah, Solomon has been one of Sean Hannity’s Tick-Tock crew for the past three years, but he also does tremendous investigative reporting and is often very perceptive in his analysis.

This piece is titled “Seven big hints Barr has dropped about Durham’s investigation of the Russia investigators,” which is self-explanatory. Most of it is stuff I’ve already covered here, but #4 on Solomon’s list is worth noting again:

4. Barr views the FBI’s continuation of the Russia probe after the Steele dossier “collapsed” as an illegitimate effort to remove the president.

Barr has repeatedly cited the fact that the FBI continued to rely on the Steele dossier after the former MI6 agent’s primary sub-source contradicted information in the dossier in January 2017 and March 2017 — and failed to tell the FISA court about the problems with the repudiated evidence.

“The dossier pretty much collapsed at that point — and yet they continued to use it as a basis for pursuing this counterintelligence investigation,” Barr noted this past weekend.

The attorney general suggested such behavior supports arguments that what was really going on was an attempted coup to remove Trump from office. “It is the closest we have come to an organized effort to push a president out of office,” he said.

[End]

It was a coup d’etat on American soil, organized initially by one sitting President to take out his successor. That’s what it was, and the Attorney General of the United States understands that fact.

As I keep saying, these Antifa/BLM agitators are a tiny minority of our country and do not have the power to tear it apart. However, a failure by Barr and Durham to bring any of the coup plotters to justice actually could cause that to happen. Because once we lose all faith in the American system of justice – and we are right on the verge of that taking place thanks to Obama’s utter corruption of our institutions – then the country will have lost its very foundation.

Time is getting very short before the November election, Mr. Barr. If you have crimes to prosecute, best get started now. Because if Joe Biden wins the election, all of Durham’s work will be torn into a million pieces and scattered to the winds.

That is all.

Where Democrat Collusion Fantasies are Concerned, China is the new Russia

Hey! Anybody up for the “China Collusion” fantasy scam? – That’s what’s coming next from the Democrat/Media Axis of Disinformation, as was made clear on the Sunday morning talk shows. Democrat activist hosts Martha Raddatz of ABC and NBC’s weaselly Chuck Todd kicked off the festivities, with Fake Jake Tapper playing a supporting role.

Hilariously, this entire scam will revolve around the media’s former whipping boy, John Bolton, who has suddenly become their newest turncoat hero now that he’s taking shots at President Donald Trump.

Todd interviewed bug-eyed Adam Schiff on his gabfest, “Meet the Press.” There he practically begged Schiff to start new impeachment hearings ASAP based on the baseless and unsupported fables Bolton tells in his book about Trump’s dealings with China’s Xi Jinping. As reported by Fox News:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff suggested on Sunday that former national security adviser John Bolton may soon testify before his panel – and that a fresh new round of impeachment proceedings may result from the memoir.

Schiff, D-Calif., made the remarks as Bolton, appearing on a separate talk show, charged that the Schiff-lead impeachment proceedings earlier this year were “too politicized” to bother with.

The back-and-forth came days after a federal judge determined that Bolton’s decision to publish his upcoming tell-all memoir on the Trump administration had “exposed his country to harm and himself to civil (and potentially criminal) liability,” and that Bolton had “likely jeopardized national security by disclosing classified information in violation of his nondisclosure agreement obligations.”

Schiff said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that although he hasn’t read Bolton’s book, “The Room Where It Happened,” his committee would be looking in coming days at having Bolton testify.

“If you don’t act now, and you sort of wait to act and you wait to see what happens in November, is that too late?” NBC News anchor Chuck Todd asked. “If you believe he has done impeachable acts with the Chinese government, can you really wait until after the election to put Bolton under oath, to start the process?”

“I don’t think we should wait, if we conclude that there are important things he says that needs to be exposed to the public,” Schiff responded. Specifically, Schiff asserted that “those comments that the president made when only the interpreter and President Xi [Jinping] was in the room, blessing the concentration camps of the Uighurs, it’s exactly why we want to know what he said to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin when he’s alone in the room with Putin.”

[End]

So, here we have the spectacle of a pretend-journalist basically talking joint Democrat/media strategy live on national television. At least old hacks like Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw kept their collusion with the Democrats behind the scenes, most often over champagne and caviar at the home of Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee.

But Weasel Todd isn’t the only corrupt media figure campaigning for another round of bogus impeachment activities from this congress. Martha Raddatz, who always looks and sounds as if she is right on the verge of crying (what must this poor woman’s childhood have been like?) aired a part of her “exclusive” interview with the star of this new fantasy play, Ambassador Pornstache himself.

In a tweet publicizing her interview, Raddatz said, “He didn’t want to be a part of the impeachment hearing” because “he thought it was too politicized and he wouldn’t make a difference … I pushed back on him several times,” ABC News’ Martha Raddatz said Sunday of his interview with Bolton.

She pushed back on him several times, because she’s right there with Weasel Todd, pushing as hard as she can for another impeachment effort by the Democrats in the house of representatives. Meanwhile, the man with the most perpetually furrowed brow in America, CNN’s insipid Jake Tapper, did his best to get Jerry Nadler, who comically chairs the House Judiciary Committee, to commit to impeaching both President Trump and Attorney General William Barr, but the little munchkin was having none of it:

“No, we’re not interested in Bolton’s testimony,” the New York Democrat said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” After being pressed by host Jake Tapper, Nadler acknowledged that “we may, but we’ll see about that.”

and, on Barr…

“I think he deserves impeachment. He certainly deserves impeachment. But again, that’s a waste of time because the Republicans in the Senate won’t look at that and we have, we have other ways of getting at this,” Nadler said.

[End]

Nadler said that, instead of moving to impeach Barr, his committee would move to withhold $50 million in funding from the massive DOJ budget instead, which would be akin to using a BB gun to try to bring down an elephant.

All of this – every last bit of it – was classic DC Swamp Kabuki Theater, with the Democrats who will ultimately lead this next scam pretending to be reluctant to move forward as they vet the concept on national TV. They will spend this week gauging public reaction before deciding whether or not to move ahead.

Will China Collusion become the new Russia Collusion? We will know soon enough.

That is all.

Barr to Berman: You Won’t Resign? Fine. You’re Fired.

Boom, again. – This afternoon, AG William Barr sent a scalding letter to SDNY U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, notifying him that, since he refused to gracefully resign when given a chance, he is fired. Here’s the letter:

In case you can’t see the photo properly, here is the text:

I was surprised and quite disappointed by the press statement you released last night. As we discussed, I wanted the opportunity to choose a distinguished New York lawyer, Jay Clayton, to nominate as United States Attorney and was hoping for your cooperation to facilitate a smooth transition. When the Department of Justice advised the public of the President’s intent to nominate your successor, I had understood that we were in ongoing discussions concerning the possibility of your remaining in the Department or Administration in one of the other senior positions we discussed, including Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division and Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. While we advised the public that you would leave the U.S. Attorney’s office in two weeks, I still hoped that your departure could be amicable.

Unfortunately, with your statement of last night, you have chosen public spectacle over public service. Because you have declared that you have no intention of resigning, I have asked the President to remove you as of today, and he has done so. By operation of law, the Deputy United States Attorney, Audrey Strauss, will become the Acting United States Attorney, and I anticipate that she will serve in that capacity until a permanent successor is in place. See 28 U.S.C. 541(c).

To the extent that your statement reflects a misunderstanding concerning how you may be displaced, it is well-established that a court-appointed U.S. Attorney is subject to removal by the President. See United States v. Solomon, 216 F. Supp. 835, 843 (S.D.N.Y. 1963) (recognizing that the “President may, at any time, remove the judicially appointed United States Attorney”); see also United States v. Hilario, 218 F.3d 19, 27 (1st Cir. 2000) (same). Indeed, the court’s appointment power has been upheld only because the Executive retains the authority to supervise and remove the officer.

Your statement also wrongly implies that your continued tenure in the office is necessary to ensure that cases now pending in the Southern District of New York are handled appropriately. This is obviously false. I fully expect that the office will continue to handle all cases in the normal course and pursuant to the Department’s applicable standards, policies, and guidance. Going forward, if any actions or decisions are taken that office supervisors conclude are improper interference with a case, that information should be provided immediately to Michael Horowitz, the Department of Justice’s Inspector General, whom I am authorizing to review any such claim. The Inspector General’s monitoring of the situation will provide additional confidence that all cases will continue to be decided on the law and the facts.

[End]

Barr says that he asked the President to remove Berman for cause. The corrupt news media is of course spinning the story in reverse, claiming the President forced Barr to take the action. Because that’s what our corrupt news media does.

What we see here is William Barr continuing his ongoing efforts to clean the deep state skunks and snakes out of the DOJ. It’s a big and difficult job that requires a big and difficult man. As Berman is finding out the hard way, Barr fits both descriptions.

Can’t wait for the next shoe to drop in this one.

That is all.
