Some time ago, Attorney General Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russian probe. Soon, we learned that the case had turned into a full-blown criminal investigation. Then, we heard nothing. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a solid development. But Barr just revealed something might be coming out as soon as today.
You probably remember what many are calling “Obamagate.” Both during and after the 2016 Election, top Obama officials were investigating the Trump campaign (later, his transition team), searching for evidence of Russian collusion. The only problem? There had never been evidence of Russian collusion and it appeared this probe was really an attempt to take down Trump.
Attorney General Barr said there were “irregularities” about how the DOJ handled this probe, so he appointed “bull dog” Durham to investigate. It didn’t take long for the case to turn into a criminal investigation—meaning some former Obama people might be prosecuted and sent to jail.
Now, Barr is announcing something will come out Friday.
There will be “a development” Friday in Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation, Attorney General William Barr told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview Thursday…
“There are two different things going on, Sean,” Barr said. “I said the American people need to know what actually happened, we need to get the story of what happened in 2016 and ’17 out. That will be done.
“The second aspect of this is, if people crossed the line, if people involved in that activity violated criminal law, they will be charged.” [Source: Fox News]
Barr revealed the information will not be “earth-shattering” but it will show the investigation is moving along.
Much has come out over the years about how Obama’s FBI and DOJ possibly violated the law to spy on Trump and his people. They used Clinton’s bogus and discredited dossier to acquire a warrant to spy on Trump campaigner Carter Page. It was even revealed they altered information to mislead the FISA court.
FBI agent Peter Stzrok called what they were doing an “insurance plan,” suggesting they would prevent Trump from entering office. Other evidence suggests that the Obama administration was trying to build a case to stop Trump from winning. They not only violated our democracy but broke the law to do it.
Barr’s DOJ has been on the case for a while. Recently, we learned that even Obama and Biden were in the loop about these attempts. Barr might reveal information in the coming months that might implicate the former vice president himself, sparking attacks from the left that he’s trying to interfere with the election.
The AG made it clear this case in not on an “election schedule.” He said they’re not doing anything inappropriate before the election, but he’s not being “dictated” by the election either.
If Democrats are worried about what he reveals before November, it might suggest they know something. Something that might hurt their candidate’s chances. Or, they just know how corrupt the Obama administration was and fear what Barr might reveal.
Regardless of what they are thinking, it’s obvious that nothing Barr reveals from now until the Fall will be good for the Democrats. Their party went to great lengths to undermine our democracy and hurt the incoming president. They threw aside any shred of integrity for our elections and way of life, just to try to get a corrupt woman into the White House.
Democrats should be very fearful about what Barr is about to reveal.
