Judge Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. Attorney General, declined to say on Monday whether he would retain Special Counsel John Durham in his role investigating the origins of the “Russia collusion” investigation.
Former Attorney General William Barr quietly elevated Durham to Special Counsel last fall, before the presidential election, to preserve his work in a potential new administration. Barr had previously said that he believed there may have been improper political motivations behind the FBI’s launch of Operation Hurricane Crossfire into Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016. One FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, pleaded guilty to misleading the FISA court to obtain a warrant.
Ranking Member Chuck Grassley (R-IA) asked Garland whether he would retain Durham, noting that Barr, in his own confirmation, committed explicitly to allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller to continue the “Russia collusion” inquiry.

Joeker nominated this Goofball? C’mon man. Theater of the absurd.
The fix has been in since Barr said Durham would release his report before the end of last summer. Remember that? Nothing has changed. It’s a deep state game. There will never he a report.
Garland is going to make us nostalgic for Eric Holder. Well, maybe not that bad, but he’s going to do his darnedest to detonate the 2016 myth that he was some sort of moderate.
The gut is an absolute MORON an IDIOT and I am very glad he didn’t make it to SCOTUS he is far to STUPID for SCOTUS!!
gut = guy Oops
We surely dodged a bullet not having this guy on the Supreme Court. Unfortunately there is a high-capacity magazine of other bullets this Administration is ready, willing, and able to fire off in its Quest to vandalize the American system.
Is anyone really surprised by this. Hunter cleared, No Special Counsel unless it is to try and find Trump guilty of something, whether it be his failure to pay a parking ticket or some not picking up his dog’s poo.
Keep praying everyone for God’s Hand in this. . . for Divine Intervention . . .for Truth and Justice. . .in Jesus Name, Amen.
Is Summer over? Gee where did all that time go? It just flys by! Work, work, work..... give those out to the boys to play with in lieu of that other thing.....
Speaking or investigations...remember Sessions appointed Huber to look into Hillary’s Uranium deal and other Clinton Foundation irregularities? That “report” was a real eye-opener!
Judy Garland was more qualified than this guy and Judy was
a druggie, popping all kinds of pills and drinking booze.
Boy the Barr is really low for AG, Sessions, Holder, Barr and now Punchy Judy
Durham is a FARCE anyway!!
I didn’t get a “harrumph” out of that guy.
Durham is a FARCE anyways!!
Mmmm maybe not. Ever is dumping on Trump, doing everything to attack and destroy him. If Durham wanted to hurt Trump, all he has to do is fold up shop and say “did find nuthin”, and that is that. For so e reason, he hasn’t. Why?
I admire your optimism but if Garland had anything of substance it would have been disclosed a year ago. Our justice system (FBI, DOJ, SCOTUS, etc) is just another institution in which I no longer have faith in it's integrity). BTW, another institution whose integrity I no longer have faith in is the Military AS IT IS CONSTITUTED TODAY
More like watching a rerun of Sgt Schultz every day...
Just wait a month or two when something big is in the news.....just like that FRAUD HUBER!
Which means Obama hasn’t told him what to do yet.
Hardly matters...it will go nowhere. It wasn’t likely to go anywhere anyway...but certainly not now with the Biden regime in charge.
