AG Bill Barr Discusses: The Firing of IG Atkinson, The Ongoing Durham Investigation, and Current FISA Abuse Issues – Video and Transcript…

Laura Ingraham broadcasts the second part of her interview with AG Bill Barr (majority transcribed below).  In this segment we can get a sense of where the DOJ is going with the ongoing investigations by U.S. Attorney John Durham into spygate and the current status of FISA against the backdrop of the prior administration abuse.

AG Bill Barr notes John Durham will bring criminal charges against those in the previous administration: “he is looking to bring to justice people who were engaged in abuses if he can show that there were criminal violations; and that’s what the focus is on.” WATCH

[@2:49 of video] INGRAHAM – John Brennan was smashing the President’s firing of Inspector General Michael Atkinson, let’s listen:

BRENNAN – “By removing Mr. Atkinson, and I think also sending a signal to others, Mr. Trump continues to show his insecurity in terms of trying to stop anybody who was going to expose, again the lawlessness, that I think he not only has allowed to continue, but also that he abets.”

BARR – “I think the president did the right thing in removing Atkinson. From the vantage point of the Dept. of Justice, he had interpreted his statute; which is a fairly narrow statute that gave him jurisdiction over wrong-doing by intelligence people; and tried to turn it into a commission to explore anything in the government, and immediately report it to congress without letting the executive branch look at it and determine whether there was any problem.  He was told this in a letter from the department of justice, and he is obliged to follow the interpretation of the department of justice, and he ignored it. So I think the President was correct in firing him.”

INGRAHAM – “An it’s the second inspector general he’s fired since the beginning of this pandemic. And of course that’s used to say: ‘well, the president doesn’t want a watchdog’.”

BARR – “No, I think that’s true. I think he want’s responsible watchdogs.”

[@4:10 of Video] INGRAHAM – What can you tell us about the state of John Durham’s investigation? People have been waiting for the, the final report, on what happened with this, what can you tell us?

BARR – “Well I think a report y’know, may be, and probably will be, a by-product of his activity; but his primary focus isn’t to prepare a report, he is looking to bring to justice people who were engaged in abuses if he can show that there were criminal violations; and that’s what the focus is on. And, uh, as you know, being a lawyer yourself, building these cases, especially the sprawling case we have between us that went on for two or three years here, uh…, it takes some time, it takes some time to build the case.”

“So he’s diligently pursuing it, uh.. My own view is that, uh, the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness, there was something far more troubling here; and we’re going to get to the bottom of it. And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted.”

INGRAHAM – “The president is very frustrated, I think you, you obviously know that; about Andrew McCabe, uh, he believes that people like McCabe and others just were able to basically flout the laws, and so far with impunity.”

BARR – “I think the president has every right to be frustrated, because I think what happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history.  Without any basis uh, they, uh, they started this investigation of his campaign; and even more concerning actually, is what happened after the campaign; a whole pattern of events while he was President. uh, So I, to sabotage the presidency; and I think that, uh, or at least had the effect of sabotaging the presidency.”

INGRAHAM – “Will FISA abuses be prevented going forward given what happened here where FISA judges were not given critical pieces of information; material facts about evidence that informed the governments’ okaying of surveillance on American citizens.”

BARR – “You know I think it’s possible to put in a regime that will make it very hard, either to willfully circumvent FISA, or to do so sloppily without due regard for the rights of the American person involved. And also to make it very clear that any misconduct will be discovered and discovered fairly promptly.  So I do think we can put in safeguards that will enable us to go forward with this important tool.. uh.. I think it’s very sad, uh, and the people who abused FISA, have a lot to answer for. Because this was an important tool to protect the American people, they abused it, they undercut public confidence in FISA but also the FBI as an institution: and we have to rebuild that.”

    If you think this first four years have been something, the next four will be epic.
    That being said, if indeed nothing in the way of TRUE justice actually occurs, the ole’ double standard/protect the institution crap, then the plastic facade of this being a Republic will remain in place. The globalist will continue to be in control, our enemies will laugh at what phonies we are, and the spread of moral decay will go undiminished.

      I know we’re all focused on the “usual suspects” in this whole disgraceful affair, but Durham could begin by indicting a few “lesser players” whose exact role has not yet been disclosed.

      Wouldn’t it be gratifying if among the first rounded up and arraigned were Michael Atkinson (for his role at DOJ/NSD) and Eric Ciaramella (for some as yet unknown role at CIA aiding Brennan)? Perhaps Mary McCord as well (for her role as DOJ/NSD)?

      This is long, sorry…

      PDJT has said, “we got ’em.” Do any Treepers who regularly come here honestly believe he’s not going to follow through on that statement?

      “Mr. President, what did you mean by, ‘We go ’em?'”
      “Actually, Jim, I mispoke, my bad…forget I said that…”

      …is what will NEVER be said at a press conference by PDJT.

      Any prosecution is hard. TV and movies don’t make it seem so, but it is. Whether for burglary, or…say, a coup.

      Example:

      Criminal Statute for Burglary: entering a structure not your own with the intent to commit a theft, or a felony therein. (seems simple enough, right?)

      Fact Pattern:
      Man caught enters a structure, not his own, alarm goes off, and he’s caught by police as he walks outside, with a blanket (not his own) wrapped around his shoulders. Additional, relevant fact: it was the coldest day of the year.

      “Did the defendant intend to steal the blanket, or to commit a felony once he was inside the structure?” That is the question before the jury, and the State must prove:

      A) he entered the structure, and
      b) his intention was to commit a theft or a felony inside the structure.

      The defense says, “Yes, he “used” the blanket, but he didn’t intend to take it, because it was the coldest day of the year, and he didn’t want to freeze to death.”

      The question is not, “did he take the blanket”?

      Rather, the question is: did he intend to deprive the owner of the blanket.

      Then the question becomes, is there any legal justification for using the blanket? And there are lots of justifications, or “affirmative defenses” in criminal court. Typically, to benefit from an “affirmative defense” defense, the defendant must first admit to the act, which would otherwise be criminal, before offering a legal justification. Then the burden shifts back to the State to prove that the affirmative defense does not apply.

      Folks, this is all for a simply burglary statute.

      So, how do you prove intent in this burglary case?

      Two ways: Direct Evidence (i.e., confession, which we don’t have), or Circumstantial Evidence (does Defendant have prior convictions for theft, that are admissible in court (not all prior convictions are admissible)? Or, were there other items on him that he took that had nothing to do with the cold weather that could be used to show that he wasn’t telling the truth about why he needed the blanket.

      THEN, even if the State proves EVERYTHING to get a conviction, all it takes is one juror to say, “Yeah, but he was cold. Do we want to put him in prison because he was cold?” and BOOM! Not Guilty. Can never be tried on those charges again.

      These are the questions that juries deliberate. And that’s for a simple “burglary” charge where a homeless person broke into an abandoned building to look for a blanket on a cold day.

      Imagine what needs to be proved, BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, in this case.

      You might not like me pointing it out, but INTENT is an element of every criminal statute. The State (DOJ) is required to prove the actus reus (the criminal act) beyond a reasonable doubt, but also the mens rea (guilty mind), beyond a reasonable. Without the guilty mind, there is no criminal act.

      Here, we have no confessions, and never will. So intent can only be proved by circumstantial evidence. And circumstantial evidence is ALWAYS going to be subjective.

      So imagine having to stand in front of 12 people, and prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Defendant acted with purpose and intention to do the criminal act alleged, but the only evidence about the purpose and intention comes from connecting dots in what sounds like a spy novel?

      During closing arguments against Brennan:

      Juror 1 (leans over to Juror 2 and whispers: “Hey, didn’t Tom Clancy write a book about something like this back in the 90’s?”
      Juror 2: Nah, that was James Patterson, I think. Good book, but those guys had a confession.
      Juror 1: Oh, yeah, right, he did confess, didn’t he. Was there a confession here?
      Juror 3: Would you two please shut up, I’m trying to sleep, and no, there is no confession here!

      THAT is what Barr and Durham and EVERY OTHER prosecutor working on this case is worried about.

      Please stop rushing them. They know what they’re doing (that line will get me more negative remarks and comments than anything else I’ve typed here, heh).

      These things are complicated, and quite frankly, this is unprecedented, BECAUSE WE’VE NEVER HAD AN ATTEMPTED COUP BEFORE!!

      There is no playbook for them to go by, they are MAKING the playbook, as we sit here and nitpick about why so-and-so isn’t frog-marched in front of the press?!

        And the coupsters know every detail of what it will take to indict them. Many, if not most & maybe all, are lawyers & lawmakers. People like Brennan, Comey, & HRC who seem to rub our noses in their lawlessness are, hopefully, trying to make us think they are safer than they are. It’s one of the Alinsky Rules. Also, we can hope that there will be confessions. The level of evil that holds these people is way too deep for me to grasp.

            and I certainly hope and pray they don’t confess or show remorse.

            this was the most serious crime against the will of the people and the constititution..

            it was an abuse of power, like no other in the history of the united states.

            we should not desire they show contrition….it would suggest a plea deal….it would insult the justice for the crime committed.

            her is what I know about the federal prosecutors.

            if a person who does not plead guilty in this midst of overwhelming evidence of a serious crime..then heaven and earth is moved to hammer them and a judge will search aggressively to form the highest punishment possible under the law.

            we should not desire or hope these people avoid the punishment they deserve by seeking at this late hour, years after committing, doubling down, on the conspiracy of a coup attempt…and the abuse of the most powerful authorities….

            no….these prosecutors must refuse such deals or the temptations to accept lessor terms.

            these conspirators never compromised their criminal actions..they added weight to the fraud over …and over..and over..repeating endlessly…leaking the press…fraudulent manipulations….creating unnecessary national security risks by fraudulently designing a scheme that inflated military tensions between two nuclear countries..over…and over…and over.

            no..the prosecutors in these cases have to remain focused on the level of criminality and the harm ..and the existential threat to this country that these criminal knowingly and willingly invented out of thin air….

            a life sentence and all assets seized…and those harmed, recovered and restored back to their former states PLUS damages..and the entire spying laws and apparatus nuked from orbit.

            any other outcome is unacceptable.

            the judge in these cases must deal justice proportionate to these galactic sized crimes.

            I doubt any of them will be executed, but they should be. I’ll have to be satisfied they rot in prison and die alone, isolated and unable to continue harming this country…if they get epstein’ed, as they probably will, I will shed no tears.

            I’ll be watching the news carefully…I’ve said it before…dead bodies are going to start popping ….tt’s inevitable.

          Susan, if you couldn’t understand my post, then how do you think 12 people will understand this whole sordid affair?

          If I’m a defense attorney, some of the first questions I’m going to ask potential jurors are:

          1) are you familiar with the website “the conservative tree house dot com?”

          2) how often do you visit it?

          3) do you have an account that allows you to post comments?

          4) what is that account name?

          5) how often do you post comments?

          6) did you read comments posted by other people on that site?

          7) have you ever “liked” a comment

          8) how many?

          9) how often?

          I would ask that about Breitbart, FoxNews, AONN.com, and any other “conservative” site.

          If any prospective jurors said yes, then I would strike them for cause, and argue that the nature of the comments on those sites would lead any reasonable person to believe that this prospective juror is biased against the Defendant, and cannot be allowed to participate as a juror because they cannot impartially evaluate the evidence as presented.

          Before you argue with me, how many times have people posted that Comey, for example, should be frog-marched in front of the press? That shows BIAS against Comey. And if toy admit to coming here a lot, then you admit to having a LOT of bias against him, and you’ll never be allowed to serve on that jury.

          A trial is not a search for absolute truth. It is a search for truth based on the parameters and guidelines established by the judge overseeing the trial. What gets admitted, what gets kept out. Ego can testify about what. How much pre-knowledge is too much so that the judge is assured there is no blatant or latent bias.

          If you’ve never picked a jury, if you’ve never argued in a FELONY trial, if you’ve never had to abide by the rules of evidence, then with all due respect, you really don’t know what you’re talking about.

            the jury would likely have material in this case that would be overwhelminging convincing.

            the real question.as I am sure you are keenly aware..

            how competent are the investigators and prosecutors and how aggressive will they be in building iron clad cases?

            it would seem to me…and please weigh in here.

            durham plus 9 prosecutors kind of indicates to me that this is very unlikely to happen…it like asking 4 health care providers in NYC to flatten the curve.

            the criminal composition and the evidence and conspiracy scope THAT WE ARE ALL VERY AWARE OF..would require a small army of prosecutors ot effectively build cases.

            the mismatch is a big huge red flag…I’m not compelled to feel justice will be served. it’s looking more and more like putting a finger in the failed dam. on purpose.

It was always going to be difficult to prove intent, criminality etc leading up to the election. However, once Trump got elected and was sworn in and they kept it up, THEN IT BECAME deliberate and that’s where the criminals will be nailed.
        Hopefully, we’ll get a twofer with a lot of them because Russiagate and Ukraingate have the same cast of characters. Michael Atkinson is a prime example. It’s not just what he did as IG, it’s also what he did signing off on fraudulent FISAS when he was at DOJ NSD. How many of the 29 cited by Horowitz in his latest IG report were reviewed and signed off by Atkinson? My guess is a lot. Also, Impeachment was done feb 5th. Why did trump wait until a few days after this last IG report to fire him?

          Change of venue is filed by the Defense, because they don’t feel they can get a fair or impartial jury pool in the instant jurisdiction due to prejudicial statements made by the prosecutor or police, or because of unusual amounts of pretrial publicity.

          There is a hearing, and the Defendant must prove by a preponderance of the evidence (more than 50%) that to hold the trial in the instant jurisdiction would amount to an infringement of the defendant’s constitutional rights.

          The State would argue the undue burden of having to shift the resources to another jurisdiction, and the State would argue than any pretrial publicity or negative statements can be cured by the court giving direction to the jury to ignore what they’ve heard and seen, and base their verdict simply on the evidence presented in court from fact witnesses and evidence duly admitted during trial.

          The judge then makes a decision. If the judge denies the defendant’s motion, then the defendant has an issue for appeal. And that’s before the trial has even started!

          The State never, EVER, gets any leeway. They are trying to take away the liberty rights from the defendant. It doesn’t matter how HARD it is for the State to prove, IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE HARD TO PUT SOMEONE IN PRISON.

          The courts are ALWAYS going to err on the side of the defendant, because the outcome is SO monumental to the defendant’s freedom.

    Barr: My own view is that, uh, the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness, there was something far more troubling here; and we’re going to get to the bottom of it.

    I think this is the first time Barr has used the word “evidence”. I remain positive.

          Settle down Beavis – these investigations I think will go into The “later” rather than sooner. It takes time to build cases against powerful people and we don’t want them to “walk” on a minor technicality because it was t thorough enough or something was overlooked. If we are lucky, maybe at some point in Trumps next term will we see indictments and a grand jury. I say a minimum at least of a few more years. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. You don’t just snap your fingers and magically put powerful, bad people in jail – it takes TIME!

        barr has done MANY other “key” staged media pressers before …and there is a solid trend to be noticed.

        did you notice ?

        I’m just making the point…it’s been alot of talk and hand waving..

        durham plus 9 does not compute to the scale of investigations required to mount a serious prosecution against even three persons of interest!

        sh$t, in my parish, it takes 9 prosecutors and staff of 20 and three years and millions spent investigating fraud on the local waste management criimes… with 3 persons of interest in the spotlight…and that delivered one indictment !

        the numbers don’t add up.

        barr is talking …give it a few more weeks…he come up with some excuse why his prosecutors are being “blocked” in some way.

        watch for it.

        none of the facts we know about durham’s crack team of 9 make any sense at all.

        not of it.

        what are they preparing to do? take down the corruption that happen in the local laundry mat or the masage parlors in east hartford?

        come on man!

        wake up.

        barr staged phase one. look strong..look progress is on the way.

        he has a pattern..a long and demonstrated patten of it.

        you know how many prosecutors durham had on one single case of a mafia racketeering case he conducted? 28!!! TWENTY – EIGHT…

        think about it…
        what am I missing here. none of the facts support this crack team is going to be doing anything of significance any time soon.

        this is barr holding on, running out the clock..

        when trump win again..and he will…barr will probably retire…his job will be done.

        save the state of the DOJ….trump and his voters get what they want.

        fbi and cia go untouched.

        spy powers and apparatus continue unabated.

        and when that happens…and it will..

        I will also predict this: some bodies are going to take a dirt nap for the crimes committed. it’s a guarantee. This injustice will not go unpunished. If the top law enforcement and our justice department can’t get it done satisfactorily…it WILL get done. It might not happen right away, but I know there are tens of thousands of people dedicated to demonstrating true patriotism and righteous justice.

      To me, anyone who says they know there aren’t going to be indictments, etc., must be able to see into the future (and I wish they told me to sell all my stocks about 6 weeks ago).

      Sessions’ failures have nothing to do with Barr and the fact that Barr worked for a Bush about 30 years ago doesn’t necessarily mean Barr is corrupt deep state. And the fact McCabe hasn’t been indicted yet doesn’t mean he’s not going to be ultimately. Way too many assumptions based on nothing but cynicism and negativity, IMO.

      Let’s judge Barr and Durham when the investigation is complete. If this is bigger than Watergate as many of us believe, it’s got to be done right and it’s obviously going to take time. I’m sure they have a lot stacked against them.

  4. Outstanding interview by Laura. AG Barr was as forthcoming as he could be considering the case against the coup plotters is still being built. And what a case it is. One discovery leads to another as treasonous crimes are buried under layers of lies and bureaucratic secrecy, hidden in a maze of purposely misleading trails, sending prosecutors all over the world in search of irrefutable evidence that can be presented in open court … able to withstand the defense team’s obfuscatory ploys.

    Someone asked a great question earlier; how did Laura scoop Sean Hannity on the two part Barr interview? I don’t think she did scoop Hannity as I believe she and her show was selected by Barr.

    If you recall, the President gave a long phone interview earlier in the week to Hannity. Then, the Grassley letter surfaces essentially asking why Atkinson was fired. This had the appearance of a deep state distraction from CV and an attack. Suddenly, Barr shows up on Laura’s show in a controlled interview format. I believe the DOJ contacted Laura, requested the time, pre-approved all questions and laid out the ground rules.

    The WH (Meadows) may possibly have instructed Barr to go on the offensive—with the objective to nip the firing of Atkinson as an abuse of power theory and Schiff’s looming impeachment 2.0 chatter, right in the proverbial cherry blossom buds.

    Most criminal laws require proving intent. He is merely reciting a fact. Few laws are strict liability in that if you are caught, you are guilty. Think of speeding. Proving intent does require evidence that the wrongdoer knew or should have known that the action violated the law. Many of those involved and under investigation are attorneys which raiser the bar for them to disprove that they “didn’t know.” It could shift the burden to the accused to prove they didn’t know because their legal training says otherwise. Building a case to prove intent takes time. The “beyond a reasonable doubt” is a real legal threshold and much higher than circumstantial evidence.

      Trump gave him the authority to declassify, but that does not mean release.

      If you release to the public, you enable the “perps” to say that an un-biased jury could not be convened – one that would be willing to presume innocence. So, the “perps” walk free. (That’s why Chicago mobsters settled their affairs with tommy guns, not courts.)

      Barr has the legal authority to declassify materials so that Grand Juries can legally see them. The materials are criminal evidence and will be treated as such.

      Everything concerning Grand Juries is, by law, secret. Only the indictment is public, if one is handed down, and even it can be “sealed” until the appropriate time. We will know about these cases, no matter how long they took to prepare, when we read in the morning CTH that someone just got arrested. We will know nothing the night before.

        “Your Honor, the Grand Jury considered materials that have never been known at all to the public. The authenticity of the materials cannot be disputed. The Jurors testified that they based their indictments largely on these things, which they did not know of and could not have known of except in their chambers. These are exhibits #41 through #104, which remain generally classified but which may be examined by you and by the jury in the appropriate secure room.

        I do, I have plans to declassify and release. I have plans to absolutely release,” Trump said. “I have some very talented people working for me, lawyers, and they really didn’t want me to do it early on. … A lot of people wanted me to do it a long time ago. I’m glad I didn’t do it. We got a great result without having to do it, but we will. One of the reasons that my lawyers didn’t want me to do it, is they said, if I do it, they’ll call it a form of obstruction.”

        Once the witch hunt ended by Mueller we were to get answers…….still waiting…..and the only ones prosecuted were part of Trumps campaign.

        General Flynn lost everything. His reputation/name drug through the mud, he is financially ruined, and still being eaten alive by legal fees and all other costs involved. There is a fund for donations to help him, but he should never have been reduced to this level for a corrupt fraudulent government that Mr. Barr has done nothing about. Even when the IG actually recommended prosecutions the DOJ declined.

          Indicting a lawyer on a low crime like lying gets at most a couple years and generally much less — so why should they roll?

  17. I derive much optimism from the fact that we haven’t heard diddly-squat about that FBI lawyer Clinesmith who, according to Horowitz, altered an email used in one of the Page FISA renewal affidavits. That overt act is a slam-dunk, no wiggle-room criminal charge that no way in hell would Durham / Barr be able to sweep under the rug. . . . yet we’ve heard nothing. The evidence on Clinesmith overcomes the expected FBI working group defense that they were all duped by the “intelligence” fed to them by Brennan & Co. Clinesmith couldn’t have done what he apparently did in a vacuum and other FBI operatives must have known what the object was.

    If Mueller had any actual evidence that strong, he would have had that punk arrested, locked up and facing an extended prison sentence which he could only hope to shorted by testifying against the rest of his cabal. We know this because Mueller (Weismann) did this multiple times with manufactured “evidence”.

    So what is being done with Clinesmith? My guess he’s been approached, lawyered up and is cooperating – Durham / Barr opting NOT to use the unethical Gestapo tactics employed by Mueller & Co. in favor of publicizing all, or most, of the criminal charges against multiple actors near the conclusion of the investigation. This is how “clean”, above board investigations are done.

    No way in hell can they let Clinesmith skate based on what Horowitz found….there’s just no way.

    There has to be something more going on than we know about.

    • That “something more” is called “protecting the institutions”. People here who think Barr is the light at the end of the tunnel simply will not believe he is just a train coming head-on and hell-bent (i.e., determined, to provide “business as usual” cover) through that long, dark tunnel.

      We have had a long list of “lights at the end of the tunnel”, every one becoming in the end The Light That Failed (famous literary reference). The latest such was Horowitz, who just got through threatening the President with more “impeachment” nonsense, through his newly-created CIGIE (which stands for, literally, “Fraudulent Impeachment Protection Society” — and yes, I know that doesn’t spell CIGIE, I wrote “literally”). And yet the moths still rally to such false lights. Remember when Nunes and Giuliani emphasized that prosecuting Comey and McCabe were slam-dunks, “a done deal”? Yet Barr let them both go — and no, for no “good reason” whatsoever, so don’t even bother trying to defend that non-action (just one of a continuing avalanche of credibility-destroying non-actions, by everyone in authority or oversight).

    “Bull” Durham, is not going to be Bull Conner, and sick his dogs on Barack Obama. Not even Bogart would dare sink the Halfrican-Queen. Ask yourself, why would cases, that are open & shut stall? Even in the early moments of investigations, things become apparent and seasoned investigators and prosecutors can foresee the likely distant outcome. Why did the Wiener laptop vanish? Investigators knew immediately who it would eventually lead to (H). Who would Epstein lead to? Israel-Mossad/captured foreign policy/FBI/CIA/blackmailed congress/Billy C & friends. Nobody, nobody high or low is going to touch that red-hot poker. So where does any decent prosecutor (or casual spectator) see Spygate ending up? THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!

    All the federal Deep State institutions and the mainstream media, know this possible outcome & are on board to stop it by any means necessary. The crazed hyena attack on President Trump, from the Deep State, the Dumb-old-rats Party and the CNN Fake Yapper crowd, for four straight years, only makes sense with the “FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT” explanation. The narrative engineers are apoplectic to not lose early & irreversible control of the historical myth making that has already been scripted for Obama. Picture Mt. Rushmore, towering in Chicago, with Nelson, Obama, Freddie Gray and Trayvon “depicted as child,” teaching future generations “the truth.” “Don’t wreck our truth,” means no meaningful investigation.

    I’m not saying President Obama was the mastermind, but he willingly went along, with the plans of others, who got way out over their ski’s, and at some point were in too deep with their crimes, to call it off.

    So here we are, the crime of the century and all we got are World Wrestling Federation referees, looking the other way. As the assault on President Trump continues, the Durham’s, Barr’s, Q’s, Huber’s & the Sean Hannity tick-tocker talkers, will mercifully be lost at sea with the Alabama elf. Only then shall we oh so fittingly arrive at the gunfight for the October Surprise. So, in a nod to Joe Biden, who once spoke of a “storybook” man, too good to be true. President Trump will be left as the only author who can complete that storybook, by declassifying the key documents & bringing a factual and just end to the Obama/Biden treachery and launching in to his second presidential term.

    Until I see a perp walk it’s all smoke and mirrors..BS and if AG Barr reads this he is intelligent enough to understand my position..

    Us Treepers know the stench in DC.. probably 90% corruption.. and zero % indictment except Roger Stone, Manafort, Papadopoulos, Flynn… I say BS,

    Barr let this narrative of a Durham report run for the past couple months, using it as a diversion to keep the media off the scent. He didn’t have to say this. That he just now shot it down is telling me that the time is nigh, and the swamp now needs to get nervous.

    It is still working just fine and if you actually read AG Barr’s responses, he is improving his ability to play the bagpipes.
