BOOM!


Monday, May 13, 2019 8:52pm - WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if intelligence collection involving the Trump campaign was “lawful and appropriate.”


So we're back to shoddy reporting standards ''a person familiar with the matter'' more leaks...


The person said Barr has appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to conduct the inquiry.



Durham has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes and the Boston FBI office’s relationship with mobsters.


I'm not very familiar with those investigations, maybe someone else can chime on on substance.

Does this mean the Democrats efforts to arrest AG Barr now fall under ''obstruction of justice'' considering it was corrupt Democrats who helped the investigation grow legs and continue to push it in congress and the house?

From Wikipedia


In December 2000, Durham revealed secret FBI documents that convinced a judge to vacate the 1968 murder convictions of Enrico Tameleo, Joseph Salvati, Peter J. Limone and Louis Greco because they had been framed by the agency


emphasis mine..


In 2002, Durham helped secure the conviction of retired FBI agent John J. Connolly Jr., who was sentenced to 10 years in prison on federal racketeering charges for protecting Bulger and Flemmi from prosecution



Durham's task force also gathered evidence against retired FBI agent H. Paul Rico who was indicted in Oklahoma on state charges that he helped Bulger and Flemmi kill a Tulsa businessman in 1981. Rico died in 2004 before the case went to trial.[6]



Durham also led a series of high-profile prosecutions in Connecticut against the New England Mafia and corrupt politicians, including former governor John G. Rowland.[6]


seems to be the right man for the job..


In 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder appointed Durham to lead the Justice Department's investigation


well looky, Democrats even liked him back in the day...

They're going to "throttle" the "reports" to coincide with the 2020 election campaigns 😎

Lots of dirty things going to get exposed on official levels ㊙

Looks like Rosenstein threw Comey under the bus for his shoddy work on the Hillary investigation and his comments about him. Getting interesting. On my Fox feed.

Looks like it is happening!
And Rosenstein unloads on Comey as a partisan "pundit".

This means subpoena's, grand jury's, indictments are coming!

That's good. I hope they get unrestricted access and security clearance and can clean this mess up once and for all.

(Will the same people who complained about the Mueller investigation costs do the same thing here too?)

I hope justice prevails, but I have my doubts about our government.

Serious doubts.

I think (behind closed doors) heads will roll, but we won't see it.

My theory is that Rod Rosenstein was able to retire quietly if he rolled over on the Obama Justice department and the attempted coup.

This one shouldn't cost too much...

After all, it's not an investigation looking for a crime and a lot of what needs investigated has already been documented under oath or part of electronic records already subpoenaed..

To the OP, nice to see Barr is moving forward.

As another poster stated, I am guessing now that looking into Barr at all now (or tweeting anything bad about him) should now be considered Obstruction of Justice.

Naa... who am I kidding... like the MSM and Democrats would hold themselves to the same standard they apply to others.

S&F for the news!

You should have left the triple posts up.
They need to read it 3 times so it sinks in.

Why would anyone complain about an investigation into
a criminal conspiracy at the highest levels of government?

**

I do not fully trust Rosenstein, however he sure cleaned up his act.

Rod's statement on Comey - A full cold blast!



"Now, the former director is a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul," Rosenstein said. "That is disappointing. Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors. Generally, we base our opinions on eyewitness testimony."

Hahahaha

" selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul"

"Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors"

Oh my looks like Comey may have rode his horse a bit too high?

Let them try. In the end, they should have just gave him the $ for the wall. Apologized. Kissed the ring. And look toward 2024. No, they doubled down and are ending up in crosshairs.

I'm sure he won't hire 18 angry Republicans to create an entrapment and evidence fabrication team.
