Skip to comments.Barr’s Plan to Release Interim Durham Report Violates Protocols James Comey Was Supposedly Fired for Breaking: Lawyers

U.S. Attorney General William Barr is planning to publicly release an interim report on U.S. Attorney John Durhams probe on the origins of the Russia investigation before the presidential election, the New York Times reported Friday. Lawyers and former DOJ officials lambasted the plan, noting that departmental protocol specifically prohibits leveraging an ongoing investigation in any way to impact an upcoming election.
Government officials told Times that expectations had been growing in the White House and Congress that Mr. Barr would make public, ahead of the election, some kind of interim report or list of findings from Mr. Durham before he completed the investigation (emphasis ours). A person familiar with the matter added that Barr had wanted Durham to wrap up his probe quickly.

These protocols are BS.
I can see how it should be frowned upon to arrest an actual candidate. It would put a real damper on a campaign if, let’s say, Joe Biden were frog-marched to a jail cell in October. That’s probably not OK.
But let’s look at Comey. He’s a traitorous crook. If we arrest him, that somehow has a real impact on Joe Biden’s campaign?? What an interesting statement that is. Would the media like to explain how Comey’s crimes implicate Joe Biden?
Law enforcement must have the ability to enforce the law and arrest bad guys. The Left just loves to take those options away.
“violates....protocols” You mean the ones the Democrats weren’t following?
The Left is doing everything in its power to rig, influence and manipulate the election - but Trump had better not do any of that...
Has Barr actually said that he plans to release an interim report? I guess I missed this?
Although I'll believe it when I see it, and any supposed "report" is a poor substitute for indictments and convictions.
But if this "John Durham" caricature can do something to prove his actual existence, that would be helpful, one would suppose.
Like when the FBI issued the report that exonerated Hillary Clinton just before the election?
He never said there would be an interim report.
As a functional part of the seditionist conspiracy, the lawyer must be arrested
He can not claim immunity as an officer of the court
All these dudes and dames that may be indicted are NOT presidential candidates.
Barr explained this protocol as a big "not a real time rule"....which actually lets Comey off the hook.
“...noting that departmental protocol specifically prohibits leveraging an ongoing investigation in any way to impact an upcoming election.”
Mueller and the democrats did it routinely for the 2018 election. Not a word of protest, and that was not the reason Comey was fired.
At this point I have NO confidence in any damned thing federal gub mint.
(Barr? Durham?) = horse crap.
Not providing the report is a political act that will affect the election. It will help Biden who was part of the ongoing coup.
Perhaps Barr will use the same protocols that McCabe and Comey used...Comey is the one ‘above reproach’...
“At this point I have NO confidence in any damned thing federal gub mint.”
Many if not most of us have been at that point for a long time.
If he releases the report on November 4, they’ll say it’s impacting the 2024 election. Why are they so certain that it will impact Biden’s campaign negatively? Because of their own complicity?
Im surprised it took eleven posts before that was pointed out. Comey was fired for being an incompetent political hack. Not firing him on day one of his administration was a mistake on Trumps part.
Comey was fired for conspiring against the incoming President. The election was already over. He was also fired on Rosenstein’s recommendation for arrogating on himself the job of the US Attorney’s office, making decisions whether or not to prosecute based on his investigation. DNC = Dragging Nuckle Cretins
