This will be a very interesting power struggle of outsiders vs swamp-dwelling entrenched insiders. Expect everyone investigating the investigators to be mercilessly trashed, much more than has already occurred, as they, hopefully, get closer to the truth.
I have every confidence in Barr’s ability and grit, and the competence of his people – but a word of caution. Let us not get our hopes too high, as we often do, that this time, the swamp-people will finally be brought to justice. This is, after all, a classic David vs Goliath scenario.
Barr / Durham
from the American Spectator:
The CIA Is Running Scared
Barr’s bloodhounds are sniffing up Langley’s skirts.
Last Wednesday the intelligence community launched its first attack on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into its illegal acts and abuses of power during the 2016 election. In a New York Times article entitled “Justice Department Seeks to Question CIA in its Own Russia Investigation,” the IC makes clear its fear of the results of Barr’s investigation of their spy operation on candidate Trump in 2016 that continued through his early presidency.
The article, obviously written at the behest of its intelligence community sources — “current and former American officials” — is the first of many concerted attacks on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation of the joint CIA/FBI spy operation. Many other articles, based on carefully crafted leaks to the media and Congress, are sure to follow because current and former high-ranking officials of those agencies (and probably the NSA as well) have a lot to lose.
John Durham, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, is running the investigation under Barr’s direction. From the Times report, we can easily deduce the fact that those who ran the spy op — including CIA Director Gina Haspel — are running scared from the Durham investigation. read more
