Morning Greatness: Durham’s Walls Are Closing In

Good Friday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president delivers remarks at the 2019 Second Step Presidential Justice Forum in Columbia South Carolina

Durham turns the dial up to 11

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s amp goes up to 11 now.

Sources say that Durham’s probe into DoJ scheme to defeat Trump and then sabotage Trump after he won election “has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation.” One of the sources said that the Horowtiz FISA report will make it clear why Durham has moved the dial to that vaunted 11 position. I hope we get the Horowitz report soon.

Now “Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges, and impanel fact-finding grand juries.”

The Democrats are not happy. Schiff and Nadler responded:

“These reports, if true, raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,” they said. “If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.”

Shouldn’t we just “let Durham do his job?” And the DoJ has already been “used as a tool of political retribution” as both Schumer and Nadler know. They are so lit up because their risky scheme, the one they were complicit in, is in danger of being revealed. Say, has Schiff ever dumped out all that evidence of treasonous collusion with RUSSIA he was honking about?

The New York Times, a subsidiary of the derp state treasonists, wants you to know that the new criminal investigation “is likely to open the attorney general to accusations that he is trying to deliver a political victory for President Trump.” And then the paper immediately makes “accusations that he is trying to deliver a political victory for President Trump.”

The Times ignores that the Mueller investigation, costing tens of millions of dollars, didn’t produce the litany of crimes all the garbage tabloids promised. It didn’t produce anything. So how did this come to pass, an investigation that cost tax payers so much money and ruined the lives of so many people in Trump oribit? Well the NYT doesn’t want to look into that because the NYT was party to it.

Report on FISA abuse: long with few redactions

Is this thing ever going to be released? I feel like we’ve been teased this report is on the verge of release for months. Any day now, I guess.

Michael Horowitz, the inspector general, informed Republicans and Democrats on four congressional committees with a status update on the report, which will detail an investigation into whether the FBI complied with laws and policies in applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“The goal from my standpoint is to make as much of our report public as possible,” said Horowitz, adding that he anticipates the final report “will be released publicly with few redactions.”

Light a fire under it, fellows.
