AG Barr just signaled that things are about to get ugly for the Russia collusion team

"The biased, overeager Comey and McCabe, however, opened an unprecedented full-blown investigation into a presidential campaign. Worse, Durham possibly will show that the Comey team started involving itself in questionable intelligence community activities that improperly ran confidential sources against Papadopoulos well before they officially opened a case — a potentially big no-no that, if proven, will not go well for all involved.

That is especially true in light of what the AG went on to say during his interview. He likened the Comey team’s inappropriate investigation and subsequent fallout to sabotage, or the effects of sabotage. “Sabotage” is another powerful word, technically a wartime crime, but a useful metaphor in its ramifications, since it implicates a range of supporting crimes such as conspiracy, fraud, perjury and false statements.

The AG then ominously stated that he is not interested in simply receiving a “report” from Durham. He expects him to focus on possible criminal violations: “And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted.”

These are incredibly hopeful words to many Americans who have come to believe — after the 2008 Wall Street-driven financial collapse, after the numerous Clinton family schemes and scandals, and after the wasteful Mueller “investigation” — that the powerful are never held accountable.

This is an attorney general projecting an air of confidence, not afraid to speak truth to slippery politicians even though the pushback will be fierce and personal. In light of that, it’s hard to imagine his confidence isn’t buttressed with mounting evidence of abusive government actions.

Justice Department to seek death penalty for Boston bomber: report
Russia says it will test coronavirus vaccine on 40,000 people
This is what the Durham investigation could well conclude: A group of people aligned with or sympathetic to one political party conspired to illicitly use the authorities of the FBI to besmirch the opposing party’s presidential candidate — and that every effort should be made to indict those who can be charged as a result.

If true, such a thing has never happened before. It would represent a direct, unprecedented attack on our democracy, to fraudulently influence the voting public with lies ostensibly emanating as facts from a noble, traditionally trusted FBI. And that, indeed, would be a travesty of historical significance. One never to be repeated, we can hope, against any future president of either party."

If the object was too besmirch the campaign of a political opponent l can only say they were pretty incompetent. Since it broke AFTER Trump got elected. Seems to be kind of relavant don't you think?

What's also relavant is the fact that just the other day. The congressional judiciary committee. A BIPARTISAN comitee, led by REPUBLICANS just stated that the Trump campaign had not only extensive contacts with Russians but that some of those contacts are identified as confirmed or suspected Russian intelligence assets.

I personally understand why the FBI the agency charged with counter-intelligence would take note and investigate.

No, the object was not bad publicity. It was harrassment.

Trump was the incoming President, responsible for foreign policy. It's part of his job to communicate with foreign governments,

Trump wasn't the incoming president. He was the presumptive nominee for the GOP when those contacts were made. Again it's the FBI 's JOB to look into that.

And bad publicity is more effective BEFORE the person actually gets elected.

The theory your espousing just doesn't make objective sense.

It's bullshit. It is a practical impossibility to indict federal officials for doing their jobs. I do not doubt intelligence was gathered on the Trump campaign because they were talking with so many Kremlin stooges that we were spying on anyway. Whatever that intelligence actually was may never come to light. It was certainly never used against Trump in any overtly political way like he did with the Wikileaks.

He likened the Comey team’s inappropriate investigation and subsequent fallout to sabotage, or the effects of sabotage. “Sabotage” is another powerful word, technically a wartime crime, but a useful metaphor in its ramifications, since it implicates a range of supporting crimes such as conspiracy, fraud, perjury and false statements.

The AG then ominously stated that he is not interested in simply receiving a “report” from Durham. He expects him to focus on possible criminal violations: “And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted.”

These are incredibly hopeful words to many Americans who have come to believe — after the 2008 Wall Street-driven financial collapse, after the numerous Clinton family schemes and scandals, and after the wasteful Mueller “investigation” — that the powerful are never held accountable.

This is an attorney general projecting an air of confidence, not afraid to speak truth to slippery politicians even though the pushback will be fierce and personal. In light of that, it’s hard to imagine his confidence isn’t buttressed with mounting evidence of abusive government actions.

Justice Department to seek death penalty for Boston bomber: report
Russia says it will test coronavirus vaccine on 40,000 people
This is what the Durham investigation could well conclude: A group of people aligned with or sympathetic to one political party conspired to illicitly use the authorities of the FBI to besmirch the opposing party’s presidential candidate — and that every effort should be made to indict those who can be charged as a result.

If true, such a thing has never happened before. It would represent a direct, unprecedented attack on our democracy, to fraudulently influence the voting public with lies ostensibly emanating as facts from a noble, traditionally trusted FBI. And that, indeed, would be a travesty of historical significance. One never to be repeated, we can hope, against any future president of either party."
If the object was too besmirch the campaign of a political opponent l can only say they were pretty incompetent. Since it broke AFTER Trump got elected. Seems to be kind of relavant don't you think?

What's also relavant is the fact that just the other day. The congressional judiciary committee. A BIPARTISAN comitee, led by REPUBLICANS just stated that the Trump campaign had not only extensive contacts with Russians but that some of those contacts are identified as confirmed or suspected Russian intelligence assets.

I personally understand why the FBI the agency charged with counter-intelligence would take note and investigate.

No, the object was not bad publicity. It was harrassment.

Trump was the incoming President, responsible for foreign policy. It's part of his job to communicate with foreign governments,
Trump wasn't the incoming president. He was the presumptive nominee for the GOP when those contacts were made. Again it's the FBI 's JOB to look into that.

WRONG. The investigation did not begin until December of 2016.

Any day now. First they have to take care of Steve Bannon and then...
Yup that's why we know about the Trump tower meeting with Veselnitskaya. About damaging the Clinton campaign. The first FISA warrant was applied for in July 2016. Actually doing some research wouldn't be bad before saying somebody is wrong

Nothing will happen to the coup perpetrators. They are above the law. The US is a banana republic, but the citizens don’t know it yet.

I suspect Trump and Barr have been warned by the D Party/Deep State, that if they prosecute they can expect the same treatment once they leave office.

There are likely some that should go to prison. They won't. This is nothing more than campaign rhetoric.

This is no different than 2016's "Lock her up".

It's bullshit. It is a practical impossibility to indict federal officials for doing their jobs. I do not doubt intelligence was gathered on the Trump campaign because they were talking with so many Kremlin stooges that we were spying on anyway. Whatever that intelligence actually was may never come to light. It was certainly never used against Trump in any overtly political way like he did with the Wikileaks.
You ought to try reading articles before you comment on them.
The article is practically devoid of information. Barr is simply trying to string the "deep state" myth along for another few months. He is already using his power for political purposes by purposely appearing to investigate Trump's scapegoats. Actually issuing indictments would make him way more guilty of the same "crimes" he is fake investigating.

Okay, hate to break it to you, here's how it's going to go down.

Any jury they call will have a shitload of Hillary voters on it... or people who lost family members to Trump Plague... or people who lost their jobs to Trump Recession... They'll want to know why MORE wasn't done to stop the Russian Stooge from screwing up their lives.
