U.S. and U.K. Intelligence Agencies Worry About John Durham – Scrutiny of CIA Draws Media Apoplexy…

There was once a time, not that long ago, when the mainstream left was highly critical of the CIA, and scrutiny of dubious claims by U.S. intelligence was a common occurrence. Of course all of that changed when those same intelligence agencies were weaponized to target a political enemy that was also the enemy of the left, namely Donald Trump.

Now, in the era of modern political narratives, no intelligence claim against the Trump administration is too outlandish. Regardless of dubious sourcing, it’s all pushed as fact so long as the target of the claim is President Donald Trump.

As a result it is not a surprise how targeted weaponization became the cornerstone of the Russian narrative, and sketchy intelligence claims of Russian involvement in elections became the mortar that binds the bricks.  The end product is tenuous at best; and if anyone starts to scrutinize the instability of the construct they too become a target.

Last year U.S. Attorney John Durham and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr were reported to be spending time on a narrowed focus looking carefully at CIA activity in the 2016 presidential election.  That CIA activity is directly related to the construction of the December 2016 Joint Analysis Report (JAR), and January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA).  Both constructs are so critical to the Russia narrative that anyone who dare question the information becomes an immediate risk and target.

Using information from U.K. media, and looking closer at yesterday’s New York Times report about investigations of the CIA, in this outline we will explain where corrupt U.S. and U.K. interests merge; what specific action was taken, & why the mortar is crumbling.

2019 – “One British official with knowledge of Barr’s wish list presented to London commented that “it is like nothing we have come across before, they are basically asking, in quite robust terms, for help in doing a hatchet job on their own intelligence services””. (Link)

The U.K. Independent ran the above quote last year based on British intelligence officials who were concerned about scrutiny on their aligned activity with the U.S. CIA during the 2016 election.  More recently, yesterday the New York Times ran an article breathless with concern about DOJ inquiry and Attorney John Durham questioning the CIA directly.

2020 […]  The Justice Department has declined to talk about Mr. Durham’s work in meaningful detail, but he has been said to be interested in how the intelligence community came up with its analytical judgments — including its assessment that Russia was not merely sowing discord, but specifically sought to help Mr. Trump defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

[…] The analysts could have been engaged in standard bureaucratic behavior like obeying the filtering process or hoarding sensitive information. Or perhaps they were trying to cover something up. The questions asked by Mr. Durham and his team suggest they are looking for any potential basis to support making the latter reading, officials said.

[…] Mr. Durham has interviewed F.B.I. officials and agents who worked on the bureau’s Russia investigation, called Crossfire Hurricane, and for the special counsel who took over the inquiry, Robert S. Mueller III. They have also interviewed C.I.A. analysts.

Mr. Durham and his team also interviewed around a half-dozen current and former officials and analysts at the National Security Agency, including its former director, the retired Adm. Michael S. Rogers, last summer and again last fall. The Intercept first reported the interviews of Admiral Rogers.

But Mr. Durham has not interviewed the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey, his onetime deputy Andrew G. McCabe or Mr. Brennan. Mr. Durham has requested Mr. Brennan’s emails, call logs and other documents from the C.I.A. to learn what he told other officials, including Mr. Comey, about his and the C.I.A.’s views of a notorious dossier of assertions about Russia and Trump associates.  (NYT Link)

It is important to remember how critical the Russian interference narrative is to the activity that took place in 2016.  If you take away the mortar, the building collapses. If the concrete evidence is not there to support the intelligence claims of 2016/2017, then all justification for the downstream “investigations” is lost.

Without the Russia narrative, those who weaponized intelligence for political surveillance are naked to the world.  The Russia narrative is essential for their justification of everything.  In a world with a functioning media the high importance of a key detail would mean even more scrutiny on that detail was warranted. Alas, in the world of orange-man-bad, the concept of a functioning media is as visible as a rotary phone.

The two-year investigation that generated the Weissmann/Mueller report contains claims that Russia hacked the DNC servers as the central element to the Russia interference narrative in the 2016 U.S. election.  This claim is perhaps the sketchiest.

It is also important to remember just how extensive the operations of the CIA were in 2016; because it is within the network of foreign and domestic operations where FBI Agent Peter Strzok is noted as a bridge between the CIA and FBI operations.

By now people are familiar with the construct of CIA operations involving Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor now generally admitted/identified as some kind of a western intelligence operative who was tasked to run an operation against Trump campaign official George Papadopoulos in both Italy (Rome) and London. {Go Deep}

In a similar fashion the CIA tasked U.S. intelligence asset Stefan Halper to target another Trump campaign official, Carter Page. Under the auspices of being a Cambridge Professor Stefan Halper also targeted General Michael Flynn. Additionally, using assistance from a female FBI agent under the false name Azra Turk, Mr. Halper also targeted Papadopoulos.

The initial operations to target Flynn, Papadopoulos and Page were all based overseas. This seemingly makes CIA exploitation of assets and targets much easier. However, there is an aspect to the domestic operation also bearing fingerprints of the CIA; only this time due to the restrictive laws on targets inside the U.S. the CIA aspect is less prominent. This is where FBI Agent Peter Strzok working for both agencies starts to become important.

In their text messages Strzok has a working relationship with what he called their “sister agency”, the CIA. Additionally, CIA Director Brennan has admitted Strzok helped write the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) which outlines the Russia narrative.

Also late July “Electronic Communication” from the CIA to the FBI originating FBI operation “Crossfire Hurricane” was party authored from the CIA by Strzok.  The fast moving Strzok immediately used that EC, to initiate Crossfire Hurricane as authorized by his boss FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap.  Then Strzok traveled to London to debrief intelligence officials there about the Australian Ambassador to the U.K, Alexander Downer and his contacts with George Papadopoulos.

Peter Strzok appears as a very eager, profoundly overzealous James Bond wannabe, who enjoyed a role acting as a bridge between the CIA and the FBI. The perfect type of FBI career agent for CIA Director John Brennan to utilize. [Strzok gets CIA service coin]

Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson hired CIA Open Source analyst Nellie Ohr toward the end of 2015; at appropriately the same time as “FBI Contractors” were identified exploiting the NSA database and extracting information on a specific set of U.S. persons.

It was also Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson who was domestically tasked with a Russian lobbyist named Natalia Veselnitskya. A little reported Russian Deputy Attorney General named Saak Albertovich Karapetyan was working double-agents for the CIA and Kremlin. Karapetyan was directing the foreign operations of Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Glenn Simpson was organizing her inside the U.S.

Glenn Simpson managed Veselnitskaya through the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. However, once the Fusion-GPS operation using Veselnitskaya started to unravel with public reporting… back in Russia Deputy AG Karapetyan unfortunately died in a helicopter crash.

Simultaneously timed in late 2015 through mid 2016, there was a domestic FBI operation using a young Russian named Maria Butina tasked to run up against republican presidential candidates. According to Patrick Byrne, Butina’s handler, it was FBI agent Peter Strzok who was giving Byrne the instructions on where to send her. {Go Deep}

Additionally, Christopher Steele was a British intelligence officer, hired by Fusion-GPS to assemble and launder fraudulent intelligence information within his dossier. And we cannot forget Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch who was recruited by Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe to participate in running an operation against the Trump campaign and create the impression of Russian involvement. Deripaska refused to participate.

All of this context outlines the extent to which the CIA and FBI were openly involved in constructing a political operation that settled upon anyone in candidate Donald Trump’s orbit.  Much of this overlapping operation was seemingly directed by Peter Strzok operating with a foot in both agencies. [Strzok gets CIA service coin]

Thus we see the importance of the Russian Conspiracy-Interference Narrative.  Without that baseline all of the aforementioned operations have no justification.  Again, this Russia narrative is the critical mortar that binds the investigative and political surveillance bricks.

All of this engagement was admittedly controlled by U.S. intelligence; and all of this was intended to give a specific Russia impression. This predicate is presumably what John Durham is currently reviewing.

The key background point is to see how committed the CIA/FBI were to the narrative of Russia interfering with the 2016 election. The CIA, FBI, and by extension the DOJ, put a hell of a lot of work into it. Intelligence community work that Durham is now unraveling.

John Durham is looking at the construct of the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA); and talking to CIA analysts who participated in the construct of the January 2017 report that bolstered the false appearance of Russian interference in the 2016 election. This is important because it ties in to the next part that involves Julian Assange and Wikileaks.

On April 11th, 2019, the Julian Assange indictment was unsealed in the EDVA.

From the indictment we discover it was under seal since March 6th, 2018:

(Link to pdf)

On Tuesday April 15th, 2019, more investigative material was released. Again, note the dates: Grand Jury, *December of 2017* This means FBI investigation prior to….

♦The FBI investigation took place prior to December 2017, it was coordinated through the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) where current FBI chief legal counsel Dana Boente was U.S. Attorney at the time, while also holding jobs in Main Justice.

♦The grand jury indictment was sealed from March of 2018 until after Mueller completed his investigation, April 2019.

Why did the DOJ wait?

What was the DOJ waiting for?

Here’s where it gets interesting….

The FBI submission to the Grand Jury in December of 2017 was four months after congressman Dana Rohrabacher talked to Julian Assange in August of 2017: “Assange told a U.S. congressman … he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents … did not come from Russia.”

(August 2017, The Hill Via John Solomon) Julian Assange told a U.S. congressman on Tuesday he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents he published during last year’s election did not come from Russia and promised additional helpful information about the leaks in the near future.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican who is friendly to Russia and chairs an important House subcommittee on Eurasia policy, became the first American congressman to meet with Assange during a three-hour private gathering at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder has been holed up for years.

Rohrabacher recounted his conversation with Assange to The Hill.

“Our three-hour meeting covered a wide array of issues, including the WikiLeaks exposure of the DNC [Democratic National Committee] emails during last year’s presidential election,” Rohrabacher said, “Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.”

Pressed for more detail on the source of the documents, Rohrabacher said he had information to share privately with President Trump. (read more)

Knowing how much effort the CIA and FBI put into the Russia collusion-conspiracy narrative; and knowing how absolutely critical it was to justify all the surveillance that had taken place prior to the 2016 election; it would make sense for the FBI to take keen interest after this August 2017 meeting between Rohrabacher and Assange; and why the FBI would quickly gather specific evidence (related to Wikileaks and Bradley Manning) for a grand jury by December 2017.

Within three months of the grand jury the DOJ generated an indictment and sealed it in March 2018. The EDVA sat on the indictment while the Mueller probe was ongoing.

As soon as the Mueller probe ended, on April 11th, 2019, a coordinated effort between the U.K. and U.S. was executed; Julian Assange was forcibly arrested and removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and the EDVA indictment was unsealed (link).

As a person who has researched this three year fiasco including: the ridiculously false 2016 Russian hacking and interference narrative; the “17 intelligence agencies”, Joint Analysis Report (JAR) needed for Obama’s anti-Russia narrative in December ’16; and then a month later the ridiculously political Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) in January ’17; the timing against Julian Assange was far too coincidental.

It doesn’t take a deep researcher to see the aligned U.S/U.K motive to control Julian Assange because the Mueller report was dependent on Russia cybercrimes, and that narrative is contingent on the Russia DNC hack story which Julian Assange disputes.

The Weissmann/Mueller report contains claims that Russia hacked the DNC servers as the central evidence to the Russia interference narrative in the U.S. election. This claim is directly disputed by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, as outlined during the Dana Rohrabacher interview, and by Julian Assange on-the-record statements.

Now Watch This Brief Interview:


The predicate for Crossfire Hurricane was Russia interfering in the 2016 election.

The predicate for the FISA warrant against U.S. Carter Page was a Russia investigation, that included the Steele Dossier as evidence, and the use therein was contingent on Russia interfering in the 2016 election.

The predicate for Robert Mueller’s investigation was specifically due to Russian interference in the 2016 election; and the possibility of Trump-Russia collusion.

All of these predicate claims are demonstrably false or wildly overstated using the most tenuous of stretched interpretations.   This is what John Durham is looking at.

The fulcrum for the media to push the Russia interference narrative is the Intelligence Community Assessment; and the primary factual evidence claimed within the ICA is that Russia hacked the DNC servers.  A claim that is only made possible by relying on forensic computer analysis from Crowdstrike, a DNC contractor.

When it comes to reviewing all of the predication aspects, the CIA holds a massive conflict of self-interest in upholding the Russian hacking claim.  Thus we see members of the CIA and intelligence apparatus within media stories outraged over being questioned.

Without the initiation by the CIA, the FBI also is exposed.  Thus the FBI holds a massive interest in maintaining the Russia hacking (Crowdstrike) claim.

Additionally, all of those foreign countries whose intelligence apparatus participated with John Brennan and Peter Strzok also have a vested self-interest in maintaining the Russia hacking and interference narrative.

Most worrisome, Julian Assange is the only person with direct knowledge of how Wikileaks gained custody of the DNC emails; and Assange has claimed he has evidence it was not from a hack – but rather from a leak by a source inside the DNC.

This Russian “hacking” claim is ultimately so important to the CIA, FBI, DOJ, ODNI and U.K intelligence apparatus; and right there is the most transparently obvious motive to shut Assange down as soon as U.S. and U.K. intelligence officials knew the Mueller report was going to be made public.

            Kirsten Powers was oddly prescient when she said (about Benghazi) “Mistakes were made but nobody made them”.

            I am with nyckers. We got our hopes up with Huber, Horowitz, Barr, Durham, and what have we got to show for it? Indictments, of course. Of those OPPOSED to the Deep State Bureaucracy (Flynn, Manafort, Stone, Papadopoulos, others). Not one of the real conspirators/felons has been indicted much less go to jail.

            Barr, Durham — all of them — are trying to run out the clock. We’re now in election season so they won’t want to do anything to “influence” the election. If Trump wins, they’ll drop back twenty yards and punt. If he loses, well then we don’t need to investigate, just say nothing happened and even if it did, they learned their lesson and won’t do it anymore.

            Obama and Hillary are above the law so those who might implicate them have only to threaten to do so and they’ll be above the law, too. This ain’t rocket science…it is corruption that has been going on since before Rome fell.

    How would the United States Citizens handle the indictment and prosecution of a very popular past President. We are divided, militia groups formed wearing black sky masks willing to do what ever the “change man” beacons. Fires burned and will again. The Left is willing to do “Whatever it Takes” to keep the lies and deceit alive. Does AG Barr reflect on the citizens receipt of a very entangled wicked web of information that is almost unbelievable and yet probable and provable. Will the potential Perp walk break our great country in two, for good? If the DOJ doesn’t do anything we are broken permanently anyway. Maybe the black hats are betting on just that. We The People crave the truth and demand it but at what cost? Let’s face it the letter agencies have no “The Untouchables” anymore, they are afraid IMO. I am thankful for our brave President Trump. He has taken the weight of all of us on his shoulders and yet he still stands and fights. Arrest the top underlings of the corrupt Obama presidency, send the message.

    Bear with me on this. Anyone who has worked in a large corporation will immediately get this. Suppose a complete doofus is put in charge of your department. He has informed everyone that your department’s primary mission will now be chasing pink unicorns. A couple will cheer and yell “Great! I hate those F’ing unicorns!” The rest, the good employees in the department, understanding that the decision was made well above their pay grade, internally roll their eyes, think to themselves “this too shall pass,” say out loud “you got it, chief,” and set about planning pink unicorn chasing operations. The good ones don’t attempt to undermine the policy decisions made by those whose job is to make policy.

    So, when we consider Vindmnan, and the whistleblower, and the small group, and others, and rightly condemn them for attempting to undermine policy made by those elected to form it and those appointed to carry it out, just remember that those we now condemn for not undermining Brennan and Comey, and the rest, were just doing what GOOD employees, good soldiers, are supposed to do. Read the first paragraph again. The trick, after the fact, is to identify and weed out the unicorn haters.

    So where am I going? Haspel. Since she has been in charge, name one of their ops that has gone bad, or one network that has been blown and rounded up. Heck, name anything currently in the news about that agency, other than the roundup of unicorn haters. We out-negotiated China and Canada and did a historic trade deal with the communist leader of Mexico. Gee, it’s almost as if we had read their top secret deal memos. [wink] We killed Bag Daddy, Sooleyman, and assorted others, and the consensus seems to be that those were strictly military intelligence ops. And at that planning session, when someone thought he heard someone whisper in his ear and turned but no one was there, then suddenly got a brainstorm “let’s look HERE,” all was as is should be.

    A slight breeze rustles the curtain, but no one is there. No more pink unicorns, and the unicorn zealots stand alone in the cold.

    I saw a photo the other day of Adm Rogers with a stern look and the caption “What is it about WE HAVE IT ALL that you don’t understand?” Durham is assembling the relevant pieces of it as a legal case to present to the grand jury.

    In light of an article in the Aug. 17, 2017, edition of the Los Angeles Times entitled: “Rep. Dana Rohrabacher meets with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, plans to tell Trump what he heard,” I’d like to amend my original letter to the FBI to include this disturbing new information demonstrating the potential depths of Rohrabacher’s political and financial ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin.
    Despite the fact that intelligence agencies across the globe have repeatedly and continuously asserted that WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange coordinated with Russian actors in their leaks of DNC emails, and that Rohrabacher’s colleagues have claimed that he is paid by Vladimir Putin, Rohrabacher took this meeting anyway.
    In the statement released by Rohrabacher’s office and his subsequent interview with the Daily Caller, it was revealed that Congressman Dana Rohrabacher not only met with the infamous fugitive Julian Assange, but that he and Assange also talked about “what might be necessary to get [Assange] out” and discussed a pardon from Trump.
    As an American citizen, I strongly urge you to open up an investigation as soon as possible and if necessary, subpoenaing the necessary documents to make a determination about Congressman Rohrabacher’s potential unlawful ties to Russia and its officials. The American public needs to definitively know whether Rohrabacher has any financial ties to the Russian regime.

      (With hand up) Question, please. I know leadership has thought this through, and we’ve discussed the strategic goals extensively, but, and I’m only asking, is there any chance that by executing this plan, we ultimately end up fuxxing ourselves? We’ve hit the King with enough ammo to empty an armory, and he’s still standing. I ask, humbly, has leadership discussed internally any strategy, other than to continue shooting, looking forward to 2024?

        Good point, didn’t think of that. Durham is looking for additional proof of their perjury and crimes. Eyewitness and verbal accounts are too often wrong or fudged as it is. A bit more difficult to fudge hardcopy.

          Ringleaders get interviewed last. It gives them the opportunity to unwittingly contradict the collected evidence and testimony, should they choose to take it.

    Great summary. The only thing I can think of that is not mentioned is the $10k that Israeli “businessman” Charles Tawil gave to Papadopoulos in an apparent effort by the Mueller team to entrap him when he entered the country.

    The stakes are so high for so many western intelligence organizations that I remain pessimistic about the likelihood that the whole story will be revealed, but I will continue to hope.

    Here is a good account, by Angelo Codevilla, of what needs to be done to clean up our intelligence apparatus:

    …but again, I remain pessimistic that anything like this will happen. The dissident political movement is spreading fast in the West, and the ruling class seeks to contain it. The intelligence organizations (esp. CIA and FBI) are central to this task.

Someone recommended Durham Barr…..Who???

    Remember, Barr says Durham will have his investigation wrapped up by Spring/Summer…..How could Barr possibly know that…??? Makes Zero sense…..How can you put a time-frame on something you’ve never seen before or experienced…..??? Unless you already know the outcome….

    Lastly, virtually all of the exposed proven corruption, criminal and unethical behavior at the FBI/DOJ and other Bureaucracies has been willfully committed by Lawyers…and not one single Lawyer has had their Law License suspended or revoked…..Half of Congress are Lawyers……The corrupt Foreman(Juror) in the Roger Stone trial is a Lawyer and big Democrat…….See the pattern???

    Since it appears no one is ever going to get indicted and even if they did they would never be convicted by a jury so honestly at this point IMO PT should just issue the order to declassify everything and appoint a Declass Czar to push, fight and ensure it all does get declassified and exposed for public consumption.

    Take Sundance’s list and go one by one exposing them and at least the truth is out to the public.

      The Department of Justice (DOJ) will no longer pursue criminal charges against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, closing a high-profile case against the former official whose conduct during the 2016 election came under intense scrutiny.

      “We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe, arising from the referral by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to our Office of conduct,” wrote two officials from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office. “Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the Government at this time, we consider the matter closed.”

    If McCabe walks, then that means everybody walks.

    You roll up a conspiracy from the bottom up, by eliciting a guilty plea from a conspirator and a cooperation agreement in exchange for help at sentencing. The guy testifies and hangs others, and you work your way up the food chain. Barr has terminated this process.

    Barr is Swamp and Deep State, and has truncated the investigation into the biggest political conspiracy in this nation’s history. I expected nothing better, but it’s still an outrage.

    And he intervened on Stone’s sentencing recommendations only as a camouflage effort for this travesty of justice on McCabe and Muh Russia. This is all a choreographed show. Swamp and Deep State has won. McConnell put Barr into that AG job to do precisely this.

    Always save the big fish for last.

    On another note, McCabe’s lawyers just announced he is no longer under investigation and cleared of all charges. Weasel words that fail to agknowledge that McCabe is very much still under close scrutiny by John Durham and is far from no longer being investigating.

    It has been interesting watching the Julian Assange extradition story unfold.

    Apparently the FBI didn’t see Steele’s dossier/Fusion GPS (for Clinton) as fed information disclosed to the FBI to disrupt. Getting FISAs based on the Steele dossier/Fusion GPS (for Clinton) on their prior source Carter Page was a risk (as Stu Evans pointed out) the FBI decided to take. Hopefully the Durham probe will bring answers & accountability.

    In texts, FBI agents on Russia probe called Trump an ‘idiot’
    Messages could fuel GOP claims that bias tainted Clinton and Trump investigations.
    By JOSH GERSTEIN 12/12/2017


    In July 2016, Page expressed concern that the “sandernistas” might undercut Clinton’s campaign.

    “I’m not worried about them. I’m worried about the anarchist Assanges who will take fed information and disclose it to disrupt,” Strzok replied, referring to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who published emails hacked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

    SD’s logical and authoritative commentary is supported by facts, clearly documented and cogently connected and presented in his commentary, not speculative theories and suppositions.

    The genius of his investigating, aggregating, analyzing, and reporting of the entire coup process is both award-worthy and incalculably valuable to present and future historians.

    I have little faith that the “Big Ugly” and “The Plan” will ever be more than catch phrases created to deliver false hope to patriots everywhere.

    Moreover, the DS has a decades-in-the-making vice grip on and within our government that will “hunker-down” as necessary to both run-out the clock on the President’s efforts to expose and to dispel them, and then rejuvenate itself to resume business as usual.

    At a minimum, SD’s brilliant work will be archived in numerous places for scholars to appreciate as a mesmerizing, fiction-like collection of truths that amaze, astound, and frighten every reader who is supportive of freedom and justice as we once knew it.

    It is equally disappointing and alarming that the literal future of our nation is in the hands of two men, Barr and Durham, neither of whom have yet produced an ounce of visible, positive treatment toward stopping the Republic from bleeding-out.

    Sometimes, the good fight is lost, but the leader and his warriors who were overwhelmed are honored forever by the righteous. Is that our destiny? I anticipate we will soon know the answer, and should continue to pray fervently for the divine intervention that is necessary to overcome the evil that pervades and surrounds us.

    Something odd is going on with Mueller and Liu’s prosecutions:

    NY Times today:

    “WASHINGTON — Attorney General William P. Barr has assigned an outside prosecutor to scrutinize the criminal case against President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The review is highly unusual and could trigger more accusations of political interference by top Justice Department officials into the work of career prosecutors.

    Mr. Barr has also installed a handful of outside prosecutors to broadly review the handling of other politically sensitive national-security cases in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, the people said. The team includes at least one prosecutor from the office of the United States attorney in St. Louis, Jeff Jensen, who is handling the Flynn matter, as well as prosecutors from the office of the deputy attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen.

    Over the past two weeks, the outside prosecutors have begun grilling line prosecutors in the Washington office about various cases — some public, some not — including investigative steps, prosecutorial actions and why they took them, according to the people. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive internal deliberations.”

    NY Times spins it as “top DOJ officials” (read: political appointees) interfering with “career prosecutors’ decisions.

    Not sure how the McCabe decision figures in as Jessie Liu did recommend prosecution. Or why Flynn’s case is being re-examined, but not Stone’s.

    But given that a federal prosecutor in PIttsburgh is supposedly looking through the Ukraine material, including Rudy’s, one suspects Barr doesn’t trust many people at the DOJ (and with good reason).
