    How hard could it possibly be to indict the guy who (‘allegedly’) faked, and manufactured a lie that carter Page was NOT cia/FBI connected? It would take a bottom-half law student from a bottom-half lawschool less than a day.

        BACKGROUND ON President TRUMP NEW USAAG SDNY:
        The United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY, or S.D.N.Y.) is the chief federal law enforcement officer in eight New York counties: NewYork (Manhattan), Bronx, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, Dutchess and Sullivan. Founded by President George Washington through the Judiciary Act of 1789, the office represents the United States government in criminal and civil cases across the country.

        Walter Joseph “Jay” Clayton III was a Law Clerk for Judge Marvin Katz a President Reagan Appointment. Another PENN Graduate, Clayton joined Sullivan & Cromwell full-time in October 1995 and became a partner in January 2001. At Sullivan & Cromwell, Clayton was a member of the firm’s management committee and co-managing partner of the firm’s General Practice Group. He specialized in mergers and acquisitions transactions and capital markets offerings and represented prominent Wall Street firms, including Goldman Sachs. He served as an adviser to numerous companies regarding issues related to the SEC, Federal Reserve, Department of Justice, and other agencies.

        Clayton has also helped multiple corporations raise money through initial public offerings, including Alibaba Group, Ally Financial, Och-Ziff Capital Management, Oaktree Capital Management, Blackhawk Network Holdings, and Moelis & Company. During the financial crisis of 2007–2008, Clayton advised Bear Stearns in its fire sale to JPMorgan Chase in 2007, Barclays Capital in the purchase of Lehman Brothers’ assets following their bankruptcy, and Goldman Sachs in connection with the investment by Berkshire Hathaway.

        Clayton disclosed to Government Ethics that his other Corporate Clients had included TeliaSonera AB, Ally Financial, Deutsche Bank, UBS, Volkswagen, SoftBank Group, The Weinstein Company, Pershing Square Capital Management, Valeant Pharmaceuticals and Individual Clients included Ocwen’s former head William Erbey, Paul Tudor Jones, former Attorney General of Ireland Peter Southerland, CDW founder Michael Krasny and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman.

        Clayton earned $7.6 million in 2016 from his firm and has a family wealth of at least $50 million. A substantial portion of his holdings were Vanguard Group Mutual Funds & Private Funds Managed by Apollo Global Management, Bain Capital, J.C. Flowers & Co., and Richard C. Perry but he divested these investments upon confirmation.

        On 20 January 2017, President-Elect Trump nominated Jay Clayton’s as SEC Chairman with Endorsements from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

        U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, (D)Nevada, expressed concern that Clayton represented Swedish firm TeliaSonera in a proposed venture that would combine Russian telecommunications MegaFon and Altimo. But 4 April 2017, the Senate Banking Committee voted 15–8 to take Clayton’s nomination to the full Senate, with 3 Democrats Voting in favor followed by Senate voted 61–37 to Confirm Clayton as Chairman of the SEC.

          • Theoretically, it is because the nominee is seeking either a higher level job, or changing to a different job; in the corporate world, you are normally interviewed again to determine whether you can handle the new position.

            Practically, it is a chance for Senators to ensure that the person going into the position won’t upset their apple cart. Blue slips are thus very valuable – both as self-protection and as political trade goods.

    • Whether for better or worse, Barr is conducting an old school, ethical investigation based on evidence, as opposed to the Mueller / Weissman Gestapo operation.

      If Mueller had a prima facia case against any of DJT’s associates like Barr / Durham have with Kevin Clinesmith (Mueller had to dig up previously discarded matters and manufacture process “crimes” to get anyone over a barrel) he would have the guy behind bars facing the prospect of a lengthy period of incarceration with the only possibility of mitigating that predicament being the “truthful” testimony against his co-conspirators. Unfortunately for Mueller, there were no co-conspirators because there wasn’t any conspiracy to begin with.

      Clinesmith on the other hand, is a different story. We know there was a conspiracy, we know there were crimes (Deprivation of Rights under Color of Law) to begin with, yet Barr is either letting him sweat or has him cooperating without any of it leaking to the press. The notion that Clinesmith will never be charged is just plain unfathomable.

      Barr / Durham are either going to preserve the country’s faith in the rule of law or are going to pave the way for thugs like 0bama / Holder / Brennan / Comey etc. to do as they please in the future.

      Yes, it is that simple.

        Basically agree. Clinesmith is a SURE thing for indictment or guilty plea with cooperation.

        The longer it takes to get him, the better for the overall Investigation. They are taking their time (which we all hate)—to get it right.

        They may disappoint in the end, but Clinesmith is a sure thing….Strzok is a high probability, and McCabe is likely, on matters other than the lies he told about the leak.

        Just my opinion.

    The most likely reason that Maria’s glasses disappear briefly at 11:38 is that this is a follow-up question that was asked at the very end of the session, after Maria had removed her glasses. She didn’t need them then, because she was no longer referring to her notes and was speaking off the top of her head. The piece was then edited into the main body of the interview, to add more detail to the questioning.

    My life’s work has been in media, with emphasis on audio and video production. Segments are often rearranged in the timeline of an interview. Usually such edits are unnoticeable, but the missing glasses give this edit away. I don’t think there is anything to be inferred by the edit. It’s just a follow-up question that needed to be in the proper section of the interview.

Along that line has Deputy Dawg, I mean that intrepid sleuth Miss Lindsey, come forth with anything of use from those hearings? Of the cast of characters in D.C., best hope for a swamp draining lies with DNI Ratcliffe, possibly Mark Meadows providing a bit of back room dealings of congress, and PDJT serving up a massive document dump to help DOJ find some justice.

        Offering little explanation, Barr announced in a news release late Friday night that Berman would be replaced on an acting basis by the U.S. attorney in New Jersey, and that Trump would nominate Clayton for the position. Berman issued a remarkable statement in response, insisting he had not resigned and had no intention of stepping aside until the Senate confirms his replacement. (This is what Barr was going to do on Friday)

        After Berman refused to step down, this is what Barr did on Sat.:

        In his letter Saturday, Barr appeared to change course from his original plan to bring in Craig Carpenito, the U.S. attorney in New Jersey, to lead the New York office — a move that legal experts had said was on especially shaky ground. The shift allows for Berman’s deputy to take over. Strauss is well respected in the office but, during a time when she was working in the private sector, made numerous campaign contributions to Democratic political candidates.

          We need to focus on the most important things. Berman is out now. And he was fired so he won’t even be placed in some other position. He’s gone, just like Strzok and Page. But because the swamp is deep and the traitors have their tentacles in everything, and there seems to be an unending supply of these roaches, Strauss will have the top spot for a while.

Some will say this was Barr’s intention all along…to placate and run out the clock…I guess we won’t know till it all plays out. In a way I hope the left keeps poking/attacking Barr because forcing him to protect/justify himself may bring some results/revelations sooner rather than later.

      He’s fine with the attacks and expects them. I’d also assume that some of the people attacking him also know what side he’s really on so as to be careful not to take it too far. DC is pure corruption. This Country is done.

      We don’t know what Barr is running. We do know no one has been indicted. We know the clock is running out. Hell, it’s nearly July and we’re still waiting. Whatever you think of the Dems doesn’t matter, their tactics are working. Meanwhile, Barr talks a lot.

        Dem tactics are based on falsehoods and corruption…fabrications. We don’t want to mimic them. If we have to become like them to win then we wouldn’t really be winning anything. I’m not defending the slowness of Barr nor am I making judgments about his intentions. I’m just saying legit investigations take a lot more time than fabricating out of whole cloth. I do wish he’d speed it up as much as possible.

    Las Vegas bookmakers had odds and were accepting bets on whether Trump would be impeached at the height of the Mueller investigation.
    The same bookmakers have no odds available that I could find as to whether anyone
    will be indicted for the Coup attempt against Trump.
    I think they acknowledge what we all know,
    that Barr is a fraud, and will never bring charges against anyone
    at DOJ/FBI who matters. Maybe a token fall guy. Maybe.

      Barr explicitly said that work is continuing.

      And by the way, Sundance’s headline is incorrect. COVID-19 did not stop the probe. Barr explicitly stated that interviews were slowed down and there was disruption of the grand juries but that Durham continues to work. Start at 6:10 in part 2.

      Did you see President Trump being interviewed by his son for Father’s Day? At the end of the interview, DJT told him he could stay and refilm asking questions- but the President was leaving. He said many news people do it when they didn’t like the way they asked the question, and then insert it. Very insightful.

    Watched this three times, each time something new to see/hear. Maria Bartiromo is the best interviewer out there – she asks questions and lets the person answer! And she asks questions we want reporters to ask!

    I get the impression there is a ton of things actually happening; in one case where she asked a question on one thing and within his answer was like a ‘give of permission’ for for her to then ask him about mail-in ballots!

    His response on the question about the conversation in the bar (Part 2, 8:25 minutes in) “that’s the official version of what happened” – seemed like a very interesting choice of words; as if there is a real version but the government is going to go with that ‘official’, i.e. public, version for now, until it’s time to reveal the real events – was the impression I got.

    Am really looking forward to her show Monday morning, (means I have to get up at 3 in the morning being on west coast time), hoping her reactions, comments, what her sense of what’s to come, because of this interview, may also give us deplorables a better insight in what’s to come DOJ-wise.

    Durham is presently more important than Barr.

    There IS an “untouchables” list (Obama, Biden, both Clintons, perhaps SSCI) and Durham understands that.

    Apart from the untouchables, Durham chooses charges and defendants, as well as the time and sequence. Durham won’t act without fully informing Barr, but Barr will NOT overrule any decisions Durham makes.

    I appreciate AG Barr giving U.S. Attorney Durham the time and resources needed to put together a bulletproof case. Mr. Durham efforts will be the talk of the world and the cases he bring will be analyzed by every lawyer, historian, and government entity for decades.

    My advice to him would be to tune out the naysayers and do the job he was hired to do. In a couple of months he can lay it all out for better or for worse.

    Glad Barr brought up the issue of the ballot secrecy problem involved in mail in voting. I would advise anyone voting Republican to do so in person unless you absolutely can’t get to the polls. The dimms want mail in voting for only one reason and that’s to tamper with the results.

      Ballot by mail also would give Antifa and/or BLM the ability to disrupt or intimidate in-person voters on election day. Knowing that the Democrats are pushing their people to stay away from the polls, the votes lost would be disproportionately Republican ones.

      My plan: vote in person on the first day of early voting. This is Texas so I will most certainly be using an approved photo ID.

      We have 26 precincts, so 26 polling locations will be open on election day in November. There are not enough police and deputies to post one at each location.

    Barr is doing the only thing he can to ‘restore’ the ‘integrity’ of the DOJ and FBI and that is removing all the people responsible for the coup attempt. Prosecuting anyone will ultimately delegitimize all of the FBI’s Case history, so that won’t happen.

    Do we accept the removal of the people responsible for the Coup attempt as sufficient retribution, knowing that is all we are ever going to get? It seems to be a Hobson’s choice, take it or leave it.

    I am willing to live with it, provided Trump is re-elected. If Trump isn’t re-elected, that means we lost the battle and the Rule of Law is over. May God have mercy on their souls . . .

It is all about protecting the bodies that are hidden and the scum that should be prosecuted and be behind bars.

    The title of this interview should be, “Barr Plays Bagpipes While Traitors Walk.”
    At 4:30 mark Barr speaks about Justice should be applied equally blah blah. Maria states that it wasn’t in Flynn’s case vs Comey and McCabe. Barr then says we are attempting to dismiss the Flynn case. Another words, Barr is equating crimes by McCabe and Comey with Flynn. What the F##k
    At 5:20 mark Barr makes this incredible statement, “It has been stunning that the coup has not been reported by the press. ” Please , someone sit Barr down and explain the main stream media is an arm of the Democrats. There have been a dozen books on the coup yet no indictments. This only emboldens the coup plotters. In fact they are warming up in the bullpen for a 4th act.
    5:50 Mark -Barr says the Durham investigation could be in jeopardy if Biden wins in November. Too me that is the money line in the whole interview. His procrastination killed this investigation. That is Barr’s out.
    650- More Bulls%%t from Barr regarding the difficulty in calling grand juries due to the virus.
    7:30 Barr states ,”This the closest we came to an organized effort to pushing a President out of office. No judgment on motivation by the people involved.” When you use words like pushing and imply I don’t know why they did it . It is wink and a nod to the traitors. In fact the whole interview was a wink and a nod to the bad guys.

      The poster seems right on. Barr came across as a worthless lump. Recited empty tropes and academese to placate and justify doing nothing. He goes out of his way to cite a Democratic Senator as a fount of wisdom which should be absorbed. Gotta cross that aisle and link arms. Justice and the country burning en route to being overthrown are remote, abstract issues to him. He’s most interested in appeasing or at least not arousing corrupt senators, which is what he is really afraid of.

You have no rational reason at the moment to think that Barr is protecting the coup-plotters. He’s been quite open about his goings on. And never forget: Barr is the person who stopped the Mueller witch hunt. He shut that stupid thing down and then deprived the Mueller team of the ability to delay releasing the results. And remember too he gave permission for Mueller to testify, which backfired bigly on the Dems. Remember how excited the Dems were about “Mueller Time!” ? 🙂
