    So who leaked portions of the IG report to the Washington Post? And why?

    It's reasonable to assume that it was leaked in order to minimize the impact of Durham's report. Remember, Horowitz was appointed by Obama, so it's not surprising that the Democrats are running with WAPO's story that Donald Trump and his campaign weren't spied on.

    "Attorney General William P. Barr has told associates he disagrees with the Justice Department’s inspector general on one of the key findings in an upcoming report — that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching an investigation into members of the Trump campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, is due to release his long-awaited findings in a week, but behind the scenes at the Justice Department, disagreement has surfaced about one of Horowitz’s central conclusions on the origins of the Russia investigation. The discord could be the prelude to a major fissure within federal law enforcement on the controversial question of investigating a presidential campaign.

    Barr has not been swayed by Horowitz’s rationale for concluding the FBI had sufficient basis to open an investigation on July 31, 2016, these people said."

    Mueller v2.0

    [​IMG]

    The rumor this morning in Jeff Bezos's Washington Post was "Barr doesn't accept key inspector general finding about FBI's Russia investigation."

    The story implied that Obama was perfectly justified in spying on Donald Trump in the summer of 2016.

    This story overshadows the release of Adam Schiff's impeachment report, Nothing Burger, Whopper Lie.

    $20 million for the Mueller inquisition

    Exactly one year ago today on December 3, 2018, the Fake News media lied and told us the Mueller report would end the Trump presidency.

    All those stories of the demise of President Donald John Trump were wrong. After nearly 2 years of investigating, Mueller had nothing on President Trump. Not one thing. This was all a sideshow aimed at ruining the president's prestige and reputation.

    Mueller was not man enough to admit it, but he exonerated the president of the false conspiratorial charges concocted by Obama and his minions of collusion.

    Now we are supposed to believe that Schiff has the goods and Barr does not?

    The Schiff report is comical.

    He calls tweeting "witness intimidation."

    But there is not one violation of federal law in the document. No citation is made because President Donald Trump never broke the law.

    I can see why the propagandists at Jeff Bezos's Post wanted to change subjects this morning.

    Republicans ripped Schiff apart in their rebuttal report.

    They said, "In 2017 and 2018, Democrats introduced four separation resolutions in the House with the goal of impeaching President Trump. On January 3, 2019, on the Democrats’ first day in power, Rep. Al Green again introduced articles of impeachment.

    "That same day, Rep. Rashida Tlaib promised, 'we’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the [expletive deleted].'

    "In this context, it is difficult to see the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as anything other than a partisan effort to undo the results of the 2016 election. Rep. Green said on MSNBC in May 2019, 'If we don’t impeach this President, he will get re-elected.'"

    Impeach.

    The public is not buying this.

    Rush Limbaugh said, "Over the weekend, you know what I didn’t hear? I didn’t hear anybody talk about impeachment. They are talking about the New England Patriots maybe floundering, people talking about Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals bragging about how much money they saved. Nobody’s talking about impeachment."

    Democrats need to win over at least some Trump supporters because public opinion drives how senators will vote, not party loyalty. Democrats need a supermajority to remove President Trump because they need almost half the Republican senators to defect.

    Tarring President Trump with impeachment is a nothing burger. He will wear it as a badge of honor.

    And the poor soul unlucky enough to be nominated by Democrats will wear it like a Scarlet Letter.

    I wonder if Barr will admit Horowitz has exonerated Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Page, Obama, Mueller, Strzok, et al. like he did for Trump after the Mueller investigation.

    of course it is bunk, as it does not confirm the narrative set out to confirm. therefore, new investigations must be held, with other investigators, who are not obama-controlled deep state puppets.

    That isn't the question Durham was tasked to answer. He was asked to determine if the predicate justified the loosing of the entire DOJ/FBI/IC on an opposition presidential campaign. And the way the Left keeps trying to spin that the question is something else is interesting.

    Durham is reviewing whether the government’s “intelligence collections activities” of the Trump campaign were “lawful and appropriate.”

    He will “illuminate open questions regarding the activities of U.S. and foreign intelligence services as well as non-governmental organizations and individuals.”

    The purpose of the Review is to more fully understand the efficacy and propriety of those steps and to answers, to the satisfaction of the Attorney General, those open questions.

    It is now well established that, in 2016, the U.S. government and others undertook certain intelligence-gathering and investigate steps directed at persons associate with the Trump Campaign. The Attorney General has stated publicly at congressional hearings and elsewhere, these remain open questions relating to the origins of this counter-intelligence investigation and the U.S. and foreign intelligence activities took place prior to and during that investigation.

    Of course not. Trump was innocent of wrongdoing, and Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Clapper, Brennan, Page, the Ohrs, Steele, Rosenstein, et. al. who misused the FISA process to illegally spy on Trump, as well as other crimes deserve to be indicted.

    The Horowitz and the Durham investigations have exonerated all of them.

    Too bad Barr, and you, are not honest enough to say so.

    You fell for a hoax, and don't have the humility to admit it to yourself.
