Durham investigation

Horowitz report is enough to make J. Edgar Hoover blush

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

FBI agents — operating at the behest of powerful appointees of the Obama administration — deliberately doctored foreign intelligence to obtain secret warrants to spy on an active political campaign. Here in the U.S. This is no longer opinion or speculation. This is fact, backed up by exhaustive investigation and extensive evidence. The fact that these massive abuses are getting short-shrift in the media today only reveals the extent to which the media has been a co-conspirator in this travesty. They have become outright defenders of a police state, where spying on innocent Americans seeking political office is now perfectly acceptable to them.

Declassifications Show Durham Is Democrats’ Worst Nightmare

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Let’s hope the CCP virus is no longer too heavily with us this summer because America is going to need its full attention, or what’s left of it, for what’s coming down the pike—the Durham Report and all that entails. The Chinese communists apparently fudged the data on the CCP virus, commonly called the novel coronavirus, and lied about it, but what is becoming clear is that our FBI, at least part of it, is or was not all that much better. Who among the Democrats will have the courage to stand up against this? I am sad to say that I am skeptical that any will. The results, where it might lead, might be too devastating for them to handle.

The Last Trusted Prosecutor in Washington

Jim Geraghty, National Review

If Durham chooses to bring charges against any official who launched the Trump probe, history suggests he is extremely likely to persuade a jury to convict the accused and sustain those convictions upon appeal. And if he does not bring charges, it is extremely unlikely that any other prosecutor could have succeeded; regardless of what the official did, the evidence would not be there to convict or sustain a conviction. John Durham’s career is full of big, high-stakes, politically charged cases, but this one is the biggest, highest-stakes, and most politically charged of all. Luckily, it seems like his whole life has prepared him for this moment.

Durham Investigation Is Criminal: a Disaster for the MSM

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

It's just been announced that the John Durham investigation into the provenance of the Russia probe has turned into a criminal investigation. Subpoenas and grand juries are coming, real ones, not the Star Chamber counterfeits being orchestrated by the panicked Democrats and their junior league Southern California Torquemada. To those of us who have been watching this spectacle from the beginning, this was inevitable. After all, where'd the Mueller/Russia probe come from in the first place? Since there was absolutely no there there, it makes no sense that it wasn't a fraud from the outset. Who started it? We should soon be finding out.

Democrats' Fear of Durham About to Reach Panic Level

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What has Durham found, possibly in concert with his superior AG William Barr, that necessitated expansion of his work? This indeed should strike fear in the hearts of the Democrats. The Department of Justice holds the whip hand. They can indict people. Yes, the Democratic Congress can impeach. And no wonder they are trying their best to do that now. They are riding high--or some of them may think they are. But most of the public doesn't know the full story or anything close. The truth rarely emerges quickly. One would advise the Democrats to reconsider, but they don't seem able to do it. They probably have too much to lose.
