Posted on 10/24/2019 6:37:47 PM PDT by Jayster
The Department Justice is opening a criminal investigation into its own Russia probe. A new report from The New York Times said officials have shifted the Russia investigation overseen by Attorney General Barr from an administrative review into a criminal investigation.
The move gives U.S. attorney John Durham the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents. DOJ rules state that a criminal inquiry can only be undertaken after finding a reasonable indication of wrongdoing. The intent of the investigation will be to uncover the origin of the Russia probe, but it is not clear what potential crime Durham is investigating or what prompted the inquiry.
This comes after Special Counsel Robert Mueller III closed the official investigation months ago.
This story is developing, please check back later for more details.
From the NYT:
It was not clear what potential crime Mr. Durham is investigating, nor when the criminal investigation was prompted. A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment.
Yea you idiots.
Good step. Important. I pray for the President, his adminitstration, our Country, the Constitution, and justice.
And so it begins!
Schiff is going to be totally insane tomorrow.
I pray for the safety of all involved!!!
I’ll get excited when these Aholes are breaking rocks in the hot sun. Until then I’ll be cleaning my guns.
His whole MO has been to immunize as many as possible by calling them whistelblowers.
“It was not clear what potential crime”
Riddle me this NY Slimes what crime was the whole Muller clown show based on? “Collusion, which you furiously pimped and turned out to be a lie, is not a crime.
Won’t this screw up Cankle’s presidential run?
>Schiff is going to be totally insane tomorrow.
Not only that, but James Wolfe’s lawyers are trying to get “certain congressmen” to testify. Seems that his leaks were probably directed by congress.
Um, how would we be able to tell the difference from how he acted today. After all, he is insane today.
I get your point though.
She will announce shortly she is running. That is the best way she can claim she is a victim of Trump’s AG.
I keep hearing good things about this One America News.
I would assume they are a more credible source than the New York Slimes.
Please enlighten me on this, FRiends.
When he sat there in front of Congress and couldn't even ask basic questions from the Republican committee members that any competent prosecutor should have been able to answer, he gave very compelling evidence that his entire investigation was a sham and needed to be re-examined from top to bottom.
His admission that the FBI never examined the DNC server, for example -- even though his team had already filed criminal charges against a bunch of Russians for "hacking" into it -- was probably the most damning thing I've ever seen a Federal prosecutor say in a public statement.
Get with the program!
Sorry -- I meant "... couldn't even ANSWER basic questions ..."
