BREAKING: Barr-Durham Investigation Is Now Officially a Criminal Investigation

This is coming in the form of some hilarious spin from The New York Times, but the big news here is that my previous speculation was correct. The Barr-Durham probe into the origins of the Trump-Russia fiasco is now officially a criminal investigation.

From the link above.

WASHINGTON — For more than two years, President Trump has repeatedly attacked the Russia investigation, portraying it as a hoax and illegal even months after the special counsel closed it. Now, Mr. Trump’s own Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation into how it all began.

Justice Department officials have shifted an administrative review of the Russia investigation closely overseen by Attorney General William P. Barr to a criminal inquiry, according to two people familiar with the matter. The move gives the prosecutor running it, John H. Durham, the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to impanel a grand jury and to file criminal charges.

You can just imagine the spittle flying as they typed this. They really, really don’t want this to be looked into and by shifting it to a criminal investigation, the DOJ now has full power to compel witness testimony. That’s bad news for a lot of people who have been flailing about, insisting there’s no reason they should be investigated.

Of course, instead of just sticking to the facts, the unbiased reporters at the Times described the shift in this manner.

The opening of a criminal investigation is likely to raise alarms that Mr. Trump is using the Justice Department to go after his perceived enemies.

Yes, that’s the problem here. Not that the DOJ has enough evidence to start criminally investigating people, but that it’s happening at all and some might be “alarmed.” Isn’t it weird how they had none of these reservations with the Obama administrations investigation into Trump, nor the Mueller investigation.

There’s not many more details in the article so we’ll have to wait to see what the next moves our, but a lot of people are going to be sweating a little more profusely tonight.

Texas “investigating” mom turning 7 year old boy into a girl

Westlake Legal Group abb11320-6f33-42fe-ae2e-1df92f98630e Texas “investigating” mom turning 7 year old boy into a girl transgender The Blog Texas puberty investigation Greg Abbott child abuse

When Ed Morrissey wrote about the story of seven-year-old James Younger in Texas, the outrage among readers was immediate and palpable. That’s completely understandable, given the circumstances. A jury recently decided against his father, Jeffrey Younger, in his attempt to gain custody of his twin sons to prevent their mother from “transitioning” James into a girl. This would be done through a process of administering dangerous puberty-blocking drugs, female hormones and eventual chemical castration. The story made national headlines and people were up in arms.

The judge in the case has postponed the final ruling and perhaps there is still hope for James. Governor Greg Abbott has announced that the state is investigating the case, hopefully as potential child abuse. (Washington Examiner)

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said that two government departments are investigating after a jury returned a verdict against Jeffrey Younger, who was petitioning for full custody of his son, in part to avoid his ex-wife’s plan to infuse him with puberty-blocking hormones.

Abbott waded into the controversy surrounding Monday’s verdict, which gave Anne Georgulas sole custody of James and his twin brother, Jude. Georgulas, who has been telling her son he was a girl since he was 3, supports giving hormones that would block his adolescence. She also wants the court to mandate that the boy’s father call James “Luna.”

“FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services,” Abbott said on Twitter Wednesday night.

Launching an investigation is one thing, but the state will need to act quickly. If the jury’s verdict is allowed to stand and the father is denied his parental rights, young James could be off to whatever deranged doctor the mother is working with before anyone is the wiser. If there’s ever been a case crying out for intervention by child protective services, it’s certainly this one.

The doctor should be investigated as well. The medical profession has succumbed to some form of mass hysteria over the past few years, driven by political correctness more than science. If the AMA won’t step in on this matter then some form of legal remedy should be sought in Congress.

While I dread saying this aloud, this case may turn out to be precisely what the nation needs. James Younger is still in jeopardy and we don’t yet know if he can legally be rescued, but an important issue is finally being brought to light at the national level. How any civilized human being can hear this story and not be outraged is beyond belief and this unfolding tragedy may be what it takes to finally spur Congress to action.

This child’s unbalanced mother began telling him he was a girl at the age of three. Allow me to emphasize that. The child was three years old. How on Earth is any three-year-old child possibly mature enough to start making decisions about things like gender? Most teenagers struggle with issues of puberty and sexuality. And at only seven years of age, the mother is preparing to have her son filled up with unnatural hormones and puberty-blocking drugs, followed by chemical castration that can never be undone. By the time the boy is old enough to actually become interested in sex, he will be permanently sterile and likely unable to engage in sexual activity.

And all of this would be allowed to happen under the hands of a licensed medical professional. The woke brigade and the trans mafia have managed to throw centuries of progress in medical science out the window and turn some doctor’s offices into the Island of Dr. Moreau.

These practices need to be outlawed nationally. What adults choose to do to their own bodies is up to them, even if they wish to permanently mutilate themselves. But the government has an obligation to protect children who are unable to provide informed consent for such horror shows.

No, Republicans Entering the SCIF to Protest Schiff Did Not Endanger National Security

Earlier today, Republicans barged in on Adam Schiff’s sham impeachment investigation, which he is inexplicably holding in the Capitol’s SCIF. That would be the room that is supposed to be used to share and view classified information among members of Congress.

Schiff has no actual reason to be using the room and he’s essentially using it as his own personal shield. A way to keep the public and Republicans in the dark as he selectively leaks information to the press to push his narrative.

While many people wringing their hands over the Republican move was predictable, some of the claims crossed the border into absurd.

Take this one for example.

This is laughably ridiculous. The SCIF is not some secret dungeon lair containing all of America’s deepest secrets. It’s simply a room with secure communications and guidelines to protect classified information when it’s actually be transmitted inside.

The problem? Nothing Schiff is doing is actually classified or sensitive, ergo there is no national security threat presented here. It’s like claiming someone might drown by walking into a drained pool. The SCIF is checked after every use to ensure there’s nothing compromised anyway.

Some on the right also chose to lose their minds over this as well but we’ll save that for another article.

The main point here is this. The country’s national security is going to be just fine after some Congressional members entered a room not even containing classified proceedings. Relax. This entire proceeding by Schiff is a sham and everyone knows it. He’s trying to hide behind classification that doesn’t actually exist while shutting everyone out of the process so he can set the narrative. Worse, he’s not even on the Judiciary Committee, who are supposed to be leading any impeachment investigation. Republicans did the right thing today but shaking things up. Sitting around and fretting on Twitter was no longer an option given the Democrat’s actions.

Andrew McCabe Does an Interview and Makes a Stunning Admission

Westlake Legal Group comey-mccabe-620x348 Andrew McCabe Does an Interview and Makes a Stunning Admission Steele dossier Russia Politics Michael Flynn investigation george papadopoulos Front Page Stories Front Page Fraud Fishing Expedition FISA Featured Story donald trump democrats corrupt Carter Page Andrew McCabe Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

I’m not sure if he meant to admit this or if he’s just so brazen that he doesn’t care. Probably the latter.

Andrew McCabe, who’s currently facing a coming indictment for lying to the FBI (while also moonlighting as a CNN analyst of course), did an interview on his time at the FBI during the Trump-Russia investigation. Along the way, he made a pretty important admission regarding the origins of the probe.

McCabe said the FBI opened its case in late July 2016 based on information about Trump adviser George Papadopoulos.

“We open the case, and then we think, ‘OK, now who are we actually going to investigate?’” McCabe said at the event, which aired Tuesday on C-SPAN.

“Who do we know who is associated with the campaign who has known, significant ties to Russian intelligence?” he asked rhetorically. “We quickly come up with four names that will not surprise you.”

Wait, so they started the investigation without even knowing who they were going to investigate? Why, it’s almost as if they were simply fishing around Trump’s campaign for political reasons.

Seriously though, that’s probably something he shouldn’t be saying out loud, as it confirms what most of us have been saying for years. This entire fiasco started without probable cause under the false pretenses of a counter intelligence investigation, which effectively removed all guardrails on Comey and McCabe. Instead of having a crime or action to go on, they simply started chumming the waters and filling in the blanks as they went.

It’s also no coincidence that three of their first four targets came from the Steele dossier. In this same interview, McCabe sought to defend the document even as it’s been exposed as the dumpster fire that it is.

He also sought to defend Steele and his salacious dossier, which the FBI used to obtain surveillance warrants on Page.

“It is raw source reporting,” McCabe said, “and Steele presented it as such.”

“We knew that Steele was working a number of different sources, some of which has sub-sources, and sub-sub-sources, and he would represent that in the reporting, as any good source should. It didn’t come with his imprimatur of, ‘this is all gospel.’ It was like, ‘this is what I’m hearing,’” said McCabe, who is under Justice Department investigation.

“That’s how good sources report.”

It should scare everyone that this guy was at the highest levels of ensuring national security. “That’s how good sources report?” By funneling abject garbage sourced from Russians that was so ridiculous that it was nearly all debunked the moment it went public? If that’s true then we should just disband the FBI because they suck at their jobs. They treated the Steele dossier as legitimate for months while it took news outlets a few days to tear most of it apart. That’s America’s best and brightest? Or perhaps just most partisan.

This guy needs to be brought down hard. If he walks after all this, justice is truly not blind in this country.

James Comey Was Spying On Loretta Lynch

Westlake Legal Group ap-comey-lynch-620x413 James Comey Was Spying On Loretta Lynch The New York Post Spied Sandbagged Politics media bias loretta lynch lied james comey investigation informant Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI doj democrats Allow Media Exception

Attorney General Loretta Lynch listens at left as FBI Director James Comey speaks during a news conference at the Justice Department in Washington, Thursday, March 24, 2016. Seven hackers tied to the Iranian government were charged Thursday in a series of punishing cyberattacks on a small dam outside New York City and on dozens of banks _ intrusions that reached into American infrastructure and disrupted the financial system, U.S. law enforcement officials said. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

James Comey really had a thing for spying on people I guess. But don’t call it spying. Call it “human surveillance” so as not to offend the sensibilities of the media.

A new report has come out, based on a coming book by Pulitzer winning journalist James B. Stewart, in which it is revealed that former FBI Dir. Comey had a high level informant placed inside then Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s office.

This via The New York Post.

Lynch had made major career advances in the 1990s under President Bill Clinton — and her boss, President Barack Obama, plainly supported Hillary’s candidacy. Plus, Obama was also implicated in the scandal, since he’d exchanged multiple emails with Clinton at her non-government address — a fact they were all keeping from the public.

Stewart reports that Comey’s “highly placed informant” indicated that Lynch wouldn’t let the FBI investigation add to Clinton’s woes. An email reportedly from the head of the Democratic National Committee assured a civilian that “Lynch wouldn’t let the Clinton investigation get very far, suggesting that Lynch would protect Clinton,” Stewart writes.

There are two parts to this. One, the fact that Comey was running an informant against his own boss (the DOJ oversees the FBI) is pretty shocking. This guy apparently just had no boundaries at all. It’s like he was trying to be a the modern day J. Edgar Hoover but without the secret sex life.

The other, perhaps more newsworthy aspect of this is that Lynch was sandbagging the investigation to help Clinton. That’s been long suspected and multiple pieces of evidence have come out over the years pointing that direction. This may be the most direct accusation yet and it matches up exactly with what transpired. While Lynch claimed she was sitting on the sidelines, essentially recused without being recused, she knew the decision to not go after Hillary had already been passed down by her own DOJ. The game was rigged even while she was smiling for the cameras and claiming she’d do whatever the FBI wanted.

At this point, all these revelations are more intriguing that actionable. It’s not illegal for Comey to do what he did and Lynch is certainly not a sympathetic character herself. WHat it does show is just how underhanded these people were. Power was simply something to be abused and politics played a central role in many things they did.

John Durham and Bill Barr Have Expanded Their Investigation Into the Trump-Russia Fiasco

Westlake Legal Group COMEY-MUELLER-01-620x326 John Durham and Bill Barr Have Expanded Their Investigation Into the Trump-Russia Fiasco russiagate Politics No collusion media bias john durham John Brennan investigation Front Page Stories Front Page Fiasco Featured Story donald trump democrats corruption bill barr Allow Media Exception

Just when you think Bill Barr and John Durham aren’t going to deliver anything worthwhile, we go and get leaks like this that re-peak my interest.

As we’ve known for most of the year now, the DOJ is currently conducting a probe of the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. This includes possible corruption in the FISA process, as well as the improper surveillance of Trump and his campaign. Except now it appears they aren’t just looking into the origins anymore. A new report is saying that the investigation has expanded to cover post the inauguration.

John Durham, the U.S. attorney reviewing the origins of the 2016 counterintelligence investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, is probing a wider timeline than previously known, according to multiple senior administration officials.

Fox News previously reported that Durham would be reviewing the days leading up to the 2016 election and through the inauguration.

However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.

The highlighted portion is key. What exactly has he been finding that’s led to a widening of the probe when we all expected it to be contracting?

We do know that a lot went on in the weeks following Trump being sworn in, eventually culminating with the firing of partisan hacks like Sally Yates, who finds herself at the center of much of the action taken after Trump was elected in November. Yates, along with a cabal of Obama officials, were working diligently to plant the seeds of the Russia collusion hoax and lay the groundwork for what would engulf the new administration for over two years.

Of course, we also know that James Comey and company were still renewing FISA warrants months after the inauguration and they were no more backed by evidence than the original ones.

I will say this. I’ve been very skeptical of Barr dropping the hammer on anyone here, but it does appear that he’s going after many of the aspects that have been previously ignored. While I think the IG report will fall flat (it is an Obama appointee after all and Horowitz did his best to whitewash his last report on the Hillary investigation), perhaps the DOJ will end up bringing about some justice here?

We’ll find out.

CNN Brings On Andrew McCabe to Analyze the Case Against Andrew McCabe

Westlake Legal Group andrew-mccabe-caricature-620x443 CNN Brings On Andrew McCabe to Analyze the Case Against Andrew McCabe Steele dossier Russia Politics Paid Analyst media bias james comey investigation Hilarious Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI donald trump doj democrats corruption CNN brooke baldwin bill barr Andrew McCabe

Caricature by DonkeyHotey flic.kr/p/Ct4G4K https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/

CNN simply has no shame left. That’s all I can figure at this point.

Andrew McCabe is currently under criminal investigation and it’s all but been confirmed that he will face prosecution in the near future. Despite all that, CNN continues to use him as an unbiased “analyst” commenting on the FBI. That’d be the same FBI he lied to multiple times, leading to his firing. You can’t make this stuff up.

But just when you thought it couldn’t get dumber, Brooke Baldwin brought McCabe on to trash “conspiracy theories” that include his actions, even though we know he did what he did and that it’s not a conspiracy theory. There just might be a conflict of interest there. I don’t know, just thinking out loud.

This is CNN (via The Federalist).

Baldwin asked McCabe why Attorney General William Barr is meeting with foreign counterparts to find out more about the hoax that duped the U.S. government into spending two years and millions of dollars unsuccessfully searching for Russian collusion with the Trump campaign to steal the 2016 election.

Well, if the guy who lied to the FBI multiple times testified to something, it must be true, right? And if you right a book, then that’s like double-super truth telling.
In regards to his assertion, it’s actually very much still a mystery because we do not know if there was even probable cause to do half the things they did in opening and conducting the investigation. What evidence were they using to take the unprecedented step of investigating the campaign of a current candidate for President? The most obvious answer is the garbage Steele dossier, but even if you buy the spin about Papadopoulos, questions remain there as well. Why was he invited to Italy? Why was he approached by several different assets working with the FBI? Was it a setup? There’s plenty there for Barr left to mine and McCabe clearly wants him to stop.

While being paid to talk on-air as a contracted CNN contributor, McCabe questioned the validity of an investigation into his and James Comey’ misconduct. McCabe is being investigated for repeatedly lying to the FBI’s inspector general about his decisions while at the FBI. Comey has been criticized by the Justice Department watchdog for violating FBI rules. Both are implicated in applications to a secret court to spy on the Trump campaign.

Think about this. CNN is paying a proven liar, who was fired from the FBI, to comment not just on the FBI, but the case against him. This is done not as an interviewee, but as a paid analyst.

Worse, Baldwin offers zero pushback on anything he says. She just sits there and nods along, as if there are no questions surrounding McCabe’s personal conduct. Then she points him to commenting on Barr looking into “Trump conspiracies,” even though McCabe has been shown to be at the center of many of the questionable actions at the FBI during his tenure and that much fo what they call “conspiracies” have been shown to have some basis in truth. At one point, it was a “conspiracy” to suggest the FBI had run assets against the Trump campaign. Now, they’ve admitted it. Same for the usage of the Steele dossier in the FISA warrants against Carter Page.

I think we’ve reached the point where literally anyone can be rehabilitated and handed a CNN gig as long as they parrot orange man bad enough. It’s both hilarious and sad.

Democrats, Media Wet Themselves Over a New Trump “Scandal” Involving the Australians

Westlake Legal Group a8636803-f428-4e76-ab5b-b516cf1d9e5e-620x317 Democrats, Media Wet Themselves Over a New Trump “Scandal” Involving the Australians Ukraine Trump-Russia Investigation The New York Times scandal Politics phone call investigation Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats crossfire hurricane Austrlians AG Barr

Just when you thought things couldn’t get dumber, Democrats and the media hand their beer off and go headfirst into another wall.

The background is of course the phone call between Trump and Zelensky, the Ukrainian President. On the call, Trump, after Zelensky brings up Giuliani’s work (which centered on Biden), simply asked if it could be looked into. He doesn’t ask for dirt to be manufactured, he doesn’t mention the 2020 election, and he applies no pressure or quid pro quo to the situation. Yet, we are assured this is an impeachable offense.

Naturally, because the narrative must be formed and solidified, now any foreign interaction involving any request about an investigation is being spun as scandalous.

The latest involves the Australians, who were at the center of the start up of Crossfire Hurricane, the Trump-Russia investigation. In reality, the Steele dossier clearly played a more significant role, but the claims about George Papadopoulos and an Aussie diplomat at a bar have become the go to excuse for why Democrats spent 2016 and beyond investigating a political enemy based on no evidence.

Trump, being the primary target, wants to get to the bottom of this and asked the Australians to cooperate with AG Bill Barr’s ongoing, official investigation into the matter. This set hair on fire across the left because apparently the president can’t even request cooperation in investigations anymore.

He “pushed” him! Unheard of!

This is ludicrous. The investigation into the origins of Crossfire Hurricane is an official investigation. It is completely legitimate and it is completely proper for a president to ask his foreign counterpart, who’s country is near the genesis of the matter, to cooperate with Barr.

Keep in mind that this interaction with the Australians is yet another illegal leak as well. So the intel community, in the middle of insisting Trump is the bad guy here, are still leaking information for political reasons. Instead of questioning this, the media are running with it like lackeys, not even stopping to wonder how coordinated this all feels.

The pushing of this story does reveal something, and it is that the Democrats think they have a weak hand on impeachment. That’s why they are rushing to reinforce a narrative that Trump was acting improperly regularly. Evidence doesn’t bear that out but this Australian thing lets them say “look, he asked someone else to help him politically!” No, he asked someone else to cooperate with an investigation which needs to happen.

Meanwhile, the IC is scrambling, throwing everything they’ve got out there for one reason. The IG report on their misbehavior is coming and they want to cover themselves, muddying the water as much as possible. In reality, that’s what all this is about. It’s not a coincidence these leaks happened right before the DOJ was getting ready to drop the hammer.

They are scared. We’ll see if their strategy of screaming “look a squirrel” works.
