While I’m not onboard with some of what the author writes, this is a pretty interesting piece.
from the American Thinker:
Does William Barr Have the Guts?
When asked if William Barr has the guts to do what needs to be done, a semi-famous conservative Twitter pundit answered that Barr has the guts, but what he lacks is prosecutable crimes.
If this seems like utter nonsense to you, you are not alone. It is nonsense until you consider that successful prosecution also requires an unbiased jury willing to convict. The point might have been that Barr lacks a D.C. jury pool that would be eager to impugn swamp creatures with the same zeal demonstrated for the prosecution of Roger Stone. This is a particularly tough pill to swallow for the sober masses who are watching our nation be systematically imperiled by Democrats and the media. read more
As of yet, we don’t know who or how many people, and in what agencies Michael Horowitz passed on to William Barr and John “Bull” Durham for potential criminal prosecution, but it had better be some from the FBI – at the very least.
As John Solomon writes in his most recent report, two of Trump’s people have either gone to prison or are awaiting sentencing for making a single false statement. According to Horowitz, no less the nine false statements were given to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA), yet not a single head has rolled to date.
Something had better come of this , and sooner than later.

AG William Barr Says Release Of FISA Report Is ‘Imminent’
Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that the release of an inspector general’s report on FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign is “imminent.”
Multiple news outlets reported Tuesday that Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general, has invited witnesses interviewed in connection with the investigation to review portions of the forthcoming report. The step is routine in investigations conducted by inspectors general, and typically signals that the release of the report is near. read more
from The American Spectator:
The Withered Branches on Mueller’s Poisoned Tree
He inherited a hopelessly biased probe and has made it worse.
The civil libertarians of the press — those card-carrying ACLU members who toss and turn at night worrying about the diminution of “privacy” — all rushed to the defense of the FBI after the release of its disgracefully flimsy FISA warrant on Carter Page. The hypocrisy of it all takes one’s breath away, as reporters and commentators, normally so censorious of privacy violations, coldly cheered the government’s harassment of Page. read more
