JAN CRAWFORD: Um, what's the status of Huber's investigation in Utah? I think the former Attorney General Sessions had asked him to look at this.
WILLIAM BARR: Right, so Huber had originally been asked to take a look at the FISA applications and the electronic surveillance but then he stood back and put that on hold while the Office of Inspector General was conducting its review, which would've been normal for the department. And he was essentially on standby in case Mr. Horowitz referred a matter to him to be handled criminally. So he has not been active on this front in recent months and so Durham is taking over that role. The other issues he's been working on relate to Hillary Clinton. Those are winding down and hopefully we'll be in a position to bring those to fruition.
JAN CRAWFORD: So he won't be involved in this really at all then?
WILLIAM BARR: No.
JAN CRAWFORD: This is his role, it's done?
WILLIAM BARR: Right.
JAN CRAWFORD: And now Durham is going to pick up--
WILL BARR: Yes, right.

More interesting comments from the complete transcript:
JAN CRAWFORD: What suggests to you there was a failure in the upper echelon at the FBI?
WILLIAM BARR: Because I think the activities were undertaken by a small group at the top which is one of the- probably one of the mistakes that has been made instead of running this as a normal bureau investigation or counterintelligence investigation. It was done by the executives at the senior level. Out of head quarters—
JAN CRAWFORD: And you’re talking about James Comey, McCabe?
WILLIAM BARR: I’m just not going to get into the individual names at this point. But I just view that- I don’t view it as a bureau wide issue. And I will say the same thing for other intelligence agencies. And they’re being very cooperative in helping us.
JAN CRAWFORD: They’re being cooperative?
WILLIAM BARR: Yes.
JAN CRAWFORD: And so you won’t will you declassify things without reviewing it with them it seems like you have the authority to do that?
WILLIAM BARR: Well in an exceptional circumstance I have that authority but obviously I intend to consult with them. I’m amused by these people who make a living by disclosing classified information, including the names of intelligence operatives, wringing their hands about whether I’m going to be responsible in protecting intelligence sources and methods. I’ve been in the business as I’ve said for over 50 years long before they were born and I know how to handle classified information and I believe strongly in protecting intelligence sources and methods. But at the same time if there is information that can be shared with the American people without jeopardizing intelligence sources and methods that decision should be made and because I will be involved in finding out what the story was I think I’m in the best decision to make that decision
He said the other issues HUBER was working on relate to Hillary.
>He said the other issues HUBER was working on relate to Hillary.
Yeah, the wording is ambiguous but the fact that Hillary is being investigated is not.
If this is true, a lot of pinot noir is going to be tossed at cats.
I don’t imagine Mr. Huber will refund the U.S. taxpayer funds he has not earned.
Durham is investigating Hillary; Hillary should be very worried.
let’s roll before she dies of old age and so will I
Read the transcript again. It would appear that Hubers focus wasnt on the FISA discrepancies, but was instead directed primarily at investigating the Witch.
Notice what IG Horowitz has started doing.
He doesnt name Gov workers (Agents) that take money from those being Investigated, that take gifts from those being investigated, and leaking sealed and sensitive information to the NYTs and WAPO.
Its less than a slap on the wrist.
Bruce Ohr still works at the DoJ!
Its worse than you think.
Wheres the Indicting to Flip?
Thats how Fed Prosecutions work. Huber has done nothing on either front.
Otherwise, people would be ambushed getting off planes and indicted for lying to Federal officers (a Felony) and then they tell the Judge they need to stay in Prison and lobby for Solitary.
Nothing has been done, its quite obvious.
And those saying Horowitz and Huber (Sessions) were frauds have been proved right.
The Huber Hillary stuff is "winding down"? Was it ever in full swing?
How many prosecutions came from that?
WILLIAM BARR: Well, we live in a hyper-partisan age where people no longer really pay attention to the substance of what's said but as to who says it and what side they're on and what it's political ramifications are. The Department of Justice is all about the law, and the facts and the substance and I'm going to make the decisions based on the law and the facts and I realize that's intention with the political climate we live in because people are more interested in getting their way politically. so I think it just goes with the territory of being the attorney general in a hyper-partisan period of time.
Horowitz didn’t pursue prosecution of unauthorized contacts with the press, the leaking of sensitive material, or taking gifts from the media, which have been attributed to Strzok, but that doesn’t mean that Durham won’t prosecute Strzok for any other criminal behavior he may have committed related to the Hillary email investigation, Flynn investigation, Trump-Russia collusion investigation, and whatever else he may have worked on. I’m assuming that Horowitz didn’t pursue charges against Strzok on those issues because Strzok had been fired, and many times that is the end result instead of pursuing charges.
“He said the other issues HUBER was working on relate to Hillary.”
Right. That’s what I read.
