Senator Chuck Grassley Ponders Lack of Durham Response Prior to 2020 Election…

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley implied this morning that USAO John Durham may not provide evidence of the already well-documented effort to remove President Trump from office until after the November election:

Senator Chuck Grassley
135 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510
Phone: 202-224-3744
Fax: 202-224-6020

Senator Grassley is chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee as well as the Senate Budget Committee. Senator Grassley was elected in 1981 and has held office for almost 40 years.

WASHINGTON DC – […] Attorney General William Barr said in May that Durham, who is investigating misconduct by federal law enforcement and intelligence officials, will likely not conduct a criminal inquiry into former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

“I have a general idea of how Mr. Durham’s investigation is going. … There’s a difference between an abuse of power and a federal crime. Not every abuse of power, no matter how outrageous, is necessarily a federal crime,” Barr said during a press conference. “Now, as to President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man. Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”

Barr told Fox News in June that he expects there to be “developments” in Durham’s investigation into the Russia investigation this summer even as he hinted that it would continue through the November election. (more)

          They do as they please with no oversite. Yes, people get to vote every 2 or 6 years, but we’ve seen how well that works. Rarely, is an incumbent unseated, and there are too many like Grassley who have been there decades and have done nothing to stop any of the abuses of power. How sad is that?

        @ zephyrbreeze… Re “PS. Naive question: Why isn’t every abuse of power a federal crime?”

        Here’s just one example why…
        If a Secret Service agent were asked by a president to stop on the way to the White House and buy his son Barron a gift for his birthday, that could be construed an abuse of power.

        However, such small potatoes should not be a federal crime; because, 1. it IS small potatoes and 2., if it WERE a federal crime, any Secret Service agent with a personal or political beef against a president could, on his own, do the same thing and then file an abuse of power complaint in order to initiate a federal criminal suit against said president and even testify to “The Crime” in federal court.

        That SS agent might even get another agent with a similar grudge against a president to testify as a witness to said federal crime and Nadler, Schiff, Pelosi, Waters etc. ad nauseam would be screaming “IMPEACH 45!” again.

        The telephone receptionists – often interns – are taught to be courteous and kind to whomever calls and to take some notes, a name and phone number.
        Few are given permission to provide dialogue on issues.

        Yes, I know of one that served in such a role for several months. With the variety of telephone calls by people from all walks of life, the listening can be informative at times, obnoxious other times and in general it can build some thicker skin.

        In general, working in a Senate office is a resume builder, for the next career step…

        And yes, depending upon the contact information provided, and the coherence of the call a reply is often generated – often depending upon the intensity of other matters – or other contacts – ongoing at the same time.

        p.s. Senators serve at the pleasure of a whole state’s population.
        The population – and issues – can generate a lot of contacts, just from one’s state.

          I’ve read a few posts by Sundance that made me wonder, “So, who’s paying attention to this blog in DC? This stuff is kind of dangerous.” Sundance recently remarked about it himself, though not in the same context.

          I can’t say if Grassley and his staff are familiar with CTH, but I can imagine hearing myself trying to explain to the courteous person on the other end of the line that, “Sundance’s research is head and shoulders above anything being offered on other blogs in both substance and insight. He’s relentless when it comes to research.”

          “Sundance has connected the consistencies and the inconsistencies in the federal government’s own documentation from the beginning. He’s been ahead of the curve with each new revelation since day one.”

          “If Grassley is truly concerned that the investigation into the original Russia hoax is tainted by political motives, and is being stalled by self serving interests, he really needs to take a good look at what Sundance knows.”

          After a short pause, I hear a kindly, “Uh huh. And can we get your email address, please?”

        The gauntlet has been thrown. Reading through the post, my question was, “Is Grassley serious, or has he been directed to begin deploying countermeasures?” Sundance’s tweet @ Grassley at the end changed everything.

        The question instantly became, “Has Grassley’s office contacted Sundance, yet?” If Grassley is as concerned as his tweet implies, it’s a no-brainer.

        The answer to the second question answers the first.

          I have my ideas about how Sundance can bring the truth and the light to the reams of dirty deeds, but not speculating in an open forum. He is smart enough to know and find out pathways on his own. But, it will take a village to help, and some in that village must have the position, rank and authority to expose it directly….along with the courage.

            Sundance, if I’ve read his posts on this correctly, is not offering to help and inform, so much as he is promising to do his level best to bust this thing open if it becomes clear that thoroughness is just another cover for foot dragging. I doubt Sundance believes he knows things the investigators have missed, and I would hope that Durham knows a few things that Sundance hasn’t discovered, or WTH is Durham doing with all the resources at his disposal?

            Sundance seems to have a plan of action to shine sunlight on the whole morass if stonewalling persists. Publicly offering to meet with Grassley, and not so subtly calling him out to back up his proclaimed concerns, is a good start.

    I appreciate Bill Barr and he’s carried the ball further than I thought he would when he was initially tapped to replace Jeff Sessions given his background.

    However, we don’t know about Durham and frankly Barr doesn’t want to do what Comey did in 2016. But Bill Barr has to know that if he does not produce before November 2020, there’s a very strong possibility Trump loses the election and then this whole affair will be swept under the rug just as past scandals such as Fast and Furious, IRS, Benghazi, etc.

    I don’t want to accuse Barr of pulling a Session’s two-step, where Sessions appointed John Huber as a cya and nothing ever came of it, but the longer Durham goes without producing results, the more I’m going to believe Durham is compromised.

    As far as Grassley, I just don’t think he’s able. He’s spent. Well past his prime. He gave up the gavel to Graham and that tells you everything you need to know.

    I would rather solicit the aid of Josh Hawley, who should be the Chairman of the Judiciary committee. He has the smarts, the energy and the incentive to take down the Deep State given his high office ambitions. This would be one heck of scalp for him that would endear him to MAGA nation.

    I would suggest to Sundance to also go and present his evidence to Hawley when he goes to present to Grassley.

    “The first thing we have to learn about fighting and winning a cultural war is that we are not fighting to “conserve” something; we are fighting to overthrow something. Obviously, we do want to conserve something—our culture, our way of life, the set of institutions and beliefs that distinguish us as Americans. But we must understand clearly and firmly that the dominant authorities in the United States—in the federal government and often in state and local government as well, in the two major political parties, the major foundations, the media, the schools, the universities, big business, and most of the system of organized culture, including the arts and entertainment—not only do nothing to conserve what most of us regard as our traditional way of life but actually seek its destruction or are indifferent to its survival. If our culture is going to be conserved, then, we need to dethrone the dominant authorities that threaten it.”

    This was written by Samuel Francis in 1993. It was the opening paragraph of “Winning the Culture Wars,” which appeared in the December, 1993, issue of Chronicles. Let that sink in.

    Part of the Big Ugly is recognizing it’s not Pelosi or Schumer whose sin is “greater”, as Christ said of the traitorous Pharisees. It’s “our side” – Barr, McConnell, Grassley, and every other two-faced traitor who schemes as they lead us to the destruction of good, for their own satisfaction and fleeting gain:

    Oh what a sight!
    How passing strange it seem’d, when I did spy
    Upon his head three faces: one in front
    Of hue vermilion, th’ other two with this
    Midway each shoulder join’d and at the crest;
    The right ‘twixt wan and yellow seem’d: the left
    To look on, such as come from whence old Nile
    Stoops to the lowlands. Under each shot forth
    Two mighty wings, enormous as became
    A bird so vast. Sails never such I saw
    Outstretch’d on the wide sea. No plumes had they,
    But were in texture like a bat, and these
    He flapp’d i’ th’ air, that from him issued still
    Three winds, wherewith Cocytus to its depth
    Was frozen. At six eyes he wept: the tears
    Adown three chins distill’d with bloody foam.
    At every mouth his teeth a sinner champ’d
    Bruis’d as with pond’rous engine, so that three
    Were in this guise tormented. But far more
    Than from that gnawing, was the foremost pang’d
    By the fierce rending, whence ofttimes the back
    Was stript of all its skin. “That upper spirit,
    Who hath worse punishment,” so spake my guide,
    “Is Judas, he that hath his head within
    And plies the feet without. Of th’ other two,
    Whose heads are under, from the murky jaw
    Who hangs, is Brutus: lo! how he doth writhe
    And speaks not! Th’ other Cassius, that appears
    So large of limb. But night now re-ascends,
    And it is time for parting. All is seen.”

  19. I have been thinking that Sundance has been leading us down a path these last couple of days. That he is trying to tell us something of the utmost importance,
    but I also think he wants us to figure things out for ourselves. He can’t do ALL the work. The burden is just too great.
    So as one bombshell after another explodes around my head, I decided to use what I call a Sundance Timeline. Just so I can keep things straight in my own mind.

    Sunday- July 5th- 6:01 PM- Sundance posts his “Inflection Points” essay. One of his most spiritually important and enigmatic. He quotes the Frost poem and implies that he “took the road less traveled.” He discusses his own values: “But for everyone, the primary bonding agent brought forward from one link to the next is ourselves, our center, our values and core principles. Our beliefs.”

    “If we tend carefully to the consideration of everyone, yet holding true to our values and principles, we can strengthen ourselves amid the face of adversity and disenchantment.”
    Many people commenting who speculate and worry that this is the end of the Tree House, that maybe Sundance is moving on. We don’t quite know what to make of this mysterious post, many are heartbroken at the thought of losing the fellowship of the CTH>

    Today- Monday- July 6- 12:05 am- a big sigh of relief is heard from Treepers around the globe as Sundance posts “Act or Be Acted Upon” in which he assures us
    “It is not my intent to be cryptic; but at a time of consequence, it is necessary. That said, the roots of CTH are deep, strong and enduring. Nothing here will change; this is your refuge and I tend to it as a happy steward. That is important to me.” Even more importantly, Sundance drops a few bombshells and reveals to us a lot of what’s been going on in the background. We find out just what he means by “inflection points.”

    It appears that someone of importance has reached out to Sundance regarding his well documented and meticulous research and writing on what he often refers to as “The Big Ugly”.

    Sundance says: “I am working right now on a project I started in December 2018. It is nearing a key inflection point, and over the next few weeks I should reach an anticipated crossroad.”

    “I have gamed-out every possible outcome you can imagine; and now enter a phase where I shall be organizing the specific details, and hopefully allies, in order to get an unstoppable chain of events in motion. If John Durham and Bill Barr deliver the brutal truth this summer, then a series of releases of information will hopefully enhance their sunlight. However, if they do not deliver the big ugly truth of it – then I will initiate events. Or I’ll go down trying.”

    Today-Monday- 4:41pm- Sundance posts the article “Grassley Ponders Lack of Durham Response prior to Election” in which he throws down the gauntlet:

    “.@ChuckGrassley Allow me to assist. You name the date and time, and I’ll meet you in your office (or anywhere) with all the verified documents you need to review evidence of a purposeful, willful and direct DOJ-FBI and USAO (DC) conspiracy to cover-up SSCI corruption. Your move.”

    Based on this 24 hour timeline, I believe that Sundance is telling us that this is it, the Big Ugly is here and now. He is putting it all on the line, taking his chances. I can only imagine whatever it was that brought him to this magnificent inflection point, but perhaps it has something to do with Independence Day, our President Trump’s speeches and the precarious state our Republic is in.
    Whatever it was or is, there is an army of Treepers from all over who are mightily armed with weapons and the knowledge that Sundance has shared with us. We will do whatever it takes. If God is with us, then who can stand against us?

      as far as i understood it, the Big Ugly term implied that the powers that be within the government, specifically the DOJ, would instigate a revelation of the truth through legal actions such as indictments of the key black hat players. It did not imply that SD would be the agent for this revelation.
      SD is one person, assumedly allied with other people, some with possible government connections. However, considering the media’s wilfull blindness to all deep state activity, we cannot expect that SD and his allies will be able to effectuate a BIG ugly, maybe at best a medium one.
      And SD’s comment on SSCI corruption seems to refer to the Wolfe case and possibly the Warner-Waldman texts re Oleg D, Assange and Steele. It would be awesome if that info was revealed to the public. However, there is zero chance the MSM will ever discuss it, short of indictments occurring.
      That being said, SD is a hero and I hope he succeeds on whatever tactic he chooses. If Hawley and other articulate politicians help him to publicize this stuff, we got a shot

      Besides the fact that indictments would almost certainly cause a sizeable percentage of possible Biden voters to sit the election out (a sufficient number to assure the election to Trump?- about 4-5 percent).
      plus, theres the matter of Justice. Crimes have been committed. The highest of crimes by the highest of people. There needs to be redress for the crimes. And there needs to be deterrence for those in position to commit similar crimes in the future. Elemental reasons for indictments now.

        Was it about Justice? Was it mostly about the impeachment talk? I think not.

        It has always been about a spiritual battle. About the things folks really believe as opposed to what they say they believe. Like “My Body my Choice” vs. Prosperity plus Law and Order. Those are the real reasons people will vote nay or yay.

        The power to be god with the power of life and death over the unborn is not something given up lightly.

How does that advance his election chances? Why is he not focused on making sure that all the information about the coup is out by any means. The liberals are playing to win by any means including the use of intimidation and violence while our side assumes that people will see all this mayhem and come to their senses. No they won’t.
    The difference between now and 2016 was that Trump was a new comer and people wanted to try something new. Also, he had surrogates on cable defending him vigorously. Can anyone name one Trumps surrogate on TV now? They don’t exist. There’s no pushbacks on the narratives that are taking root in people’s minds.
    I will say it again, if Trump, his campaign and his supporters doesn’t start focusing on winning this election by any means necessary like the left does, then kiss the presidency and senate goodbye. Why? The left are going to milk this chaos, noose-gate (that will pop up around the battle ground states as we get closer to the election) and racism till November.

    So let’s play a what if scenario out……

    What if, Barr and Durham know and have much of the evidence today that there was a planned coup attempt on PT and this country that ran for 3+ years.

    But they choose not to indict anyone or declassify anything before Nov so as to not interfere in the election.

    Thus the majority of the American people don’t know the truth and go to the polls and PT loses.

    During the transition period, indictments are filed only to be dropped post Jan inauguration or the investigation is stalled or delayed until post inauguration and then dropped altogether with the commencement of a new AG.

    Feb 1, 2021 comes and the left immediately moves on PT and his family with another bogus made up charge that takes him into the DC circuit. Yes that DC Circuit.

    The jury sides with the bogus prosecution and PT and maybe even members of his family are actually sentenced to prison.

    So in essence an innocent man, who happens to be the ex President of the US and some of his family could go to jail when the real crime, a known, months ago coup was attempted but never put out publicly because it was not PC and not wanting to interfere in an election.

    I wonder if Barr and Durham have truly thought through the possible scenarios if they choose no action on their part, prior to Nov?

Obama can simply be named as an unindicted “john doe” co-conspirator, if the evidence shows this to be true. It didn’t take very long to prosecute General Flynn, papadop, Stone, cohen, or manafort.
      This is agigantic stall. get a grip !!

    Not prosecuting the faking of evidence to get a FISA warrant, is criminal in itself. The case filing would take less than a day to write, and could be filed in less than a week. Open and shut. There is NO reason whatsoever for the “wheels of justice to grind slowly”. Pure BS. Barr is protecting the liars and coup plotters.

    FISC chief judge collyer, and new chief FISC judge boasberg (who just stopped the South Dakota-to-Illinois pipeline as an activist judge) not immediately, and severely disciplining the fraud on the FISC court by all the oath-signers, is a complete dereliction of constitutional responsibility. Disgusting. False Oath and withholding of evidence when the defendant(s) are not represented is an abomination. But OK with the FISC. Admiral rogers forced the FISC to admit 85% of spying was illegal “No problem” The FISC is crooked. Barr is also protecting the liars-to-the FISC.

    Mccabe lied under oath – no prosecution. General Flynn did not lie under oath – prosecuted inexorably.

    Wolfe released top-secret records to his ‘concubine’ => slap on the wrist. Awans go scot free.
    Papadoc setup to import $10K, foils the setup plan, => prosecuted for misremembering a date that halper and mewler confused. Stone prosecuted for ‘russian’ scam denied by wikileaks.
    The DOJ under barr remains corrupt, and continues to be the protector of the coup criminals.
