Skip to comments.Review of Russia Inquiry Grows as F.B.I. Witnesses Are Questioned
Posted on 10/19/2019 7:11:33 AM PDT by yesthatjallen
The review, led by the prosecutor John Durham, has focused on former investigators who are frequent targets of President Trump.
Federal prosecutors reviewing the origins of the Russia investigation have asked witnesses pointed questions about any anti-Trump bias among former F.B.I. officials who are frequent targets of President Trump and about the earliest steps they took in the Russia inquiry, according to former officials and other people familiar with the review.
The prosecutors, led by John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, have interviewed about two dozen former and current F.B.I. officials, the people said. Two former senior F.B.I. agents are assisting with the review, the people said.
The number of interviews shows that Mr. Durhams review is further along than previously known. It has served as a political flash point since Attorney General William P. Barr revealed in the spring that he planned to scrutinize the beginnings of the Russia investigation, which Mr. Trump and his allies have attacked without evidence as a plot by law enforcement and intelligence officials to prevent him from winning the 2016 election.
Closely overseen by Mr. Barr, Mr. Durham and his investigators have sought help from governments in countries that figure into right-wing attacks and unfounded conspiracy theories about the Russia investigation, stirring criticism that they are trying to deliver Mr. Trump a political victory rather than conducting an independent review.

When the Slimes says “unfounded” that means it is true with metaphysical certainty!
Russian collusion hoax = Real
Investigating the origins of the Russian hoax = Right-wing, white-supremacist wacko conspiracy! Damnit, why can’t Drumpf just let us destroy him like we do to all other Republicans?
Ironic, since that was the reason for the Russian hoax and impeachment.
The NYT is pure propaganda.
If theyre creating that narrative, then theres a reason for it. I suspect the B-17 squadron is right over the target.
Has there ever, in recorded history, been an allegation (absurd or not) leveled against a conservative that was labeled unfounded in MSM reportage?
Yes, its a rhetorical question.
It’s almost like they are accusing him of doing what they did.
Which would be an unprecedented tactic.
Well so what! What they are trying to do is akin to trying to stop an Abrams tank by shooting tennis balls at it.
The other dig is when they throw in “without evidence.”
The Old Gray Whore is foolish in actively attempting to discredit the investigation.
Pissing into the wind is counter productive
Closely overseen by Mr. Barr, Mr. Durham and his investigators have sought help from governments in countries that figure into right-wing attacks and unfounded conspiracy theories about the Russia investigation...
If the Dems did nothing wrong, and these are all conspiracy theories, then there is nothing to worry about with Dunham’s investigation. Right NYTimes?
They're trying to get ahead of the release of these investigations.
They're going on the offense that these investigations are purely political. When the reports are released this will be their defense.

some good clues in the article
Leakers in the FBI and the NYTs trying to control the narrative before the investigation is released.
NYT’s source is equivalent to “someone who breathed at some time”. They have descended to “fake leaking”.
If the Dems did nothing wrong, and these are all conspiracy theories, then there is nothing to worry about with Dunhams investigation. Right NYTimes?
Exactly right. If they’re so innocent they should welcome, if not push for, this investigation.
Journalism. It's dead Jim.
