    SAYS DEPOSITION IN HANDS OF SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE by Sharon Rondeau (Aug. 1, 2019) — On Thursday night’s “Hannity,” John Solomon of “The Hill” said he can report with certainty that U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham has interviewed Joseph Mifsud, the mysterious Maltese professor who in spring 2016 approached then-Trump volunteer campaign aide George Papadopoulos with allegations that “Russians” had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. Earlier this year, Durham was tasked by Attorney General William Barr with investigating the origins of the Russia “collusion” investigation which clouded the first 2+ years of the Trump administration and encompassed...

    When then-AG Jeff Sessions announced 15 months ago that US Attorney for Utah, John Huber, would be conducting a review of the FBI’s use of wiretapping on the Trump campaign, initial hopes soon turned to disappointment that nothing seemed to be happening. But yesterday, former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker rather casually mentioned (or perhaps let slip) during an interview with Sandra Smith that Huber is looking at “Comey’s memos and the like…. And there’s a lot of things Bill Barr is going to be bringing to a conclusion.” Watch below, cued to the moment he mentions this: (hat...

    Speaking to WMAL radio, former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova informs the audience that declassified documents will begin to be made public starting Wednesday July 31st. Additionally, Mr. diGenova states confidently that U.S. Attorney John Durham is not conducting a “review”, but is conducting a full criminal investigation with a grand jury empaneled and currently receiving testimony from witnesses.

    It used to be a truism of American politics that we only have one President at a time. That there was a strong tradition ensuring the ‘peaceful transition of power” from one administration to the other. President Barack Obama is obliterating those quaint traditions of American democracy. Indeed he seems to have set up a government in exile, in Washington DC, while he seeks to undermine and sabotage the sitting President.

    They really counted on Hillary wining, didn't they? Former director of National Intelligence James Clapper is in panic mode, realizing that the so-called "intelligence community" he supervised under President Obama is about to be revealed by Atty. Gen. William Barr and U.S. atty. John Durham as a weaponized arm of the Clinton campaign, with indictments to follow. The man who lied to Congress about spying on the American people was shocked back in April to hear Barr testify before Congress that yes, he thought the Trump campaign had been spied upon by his political opponents. As Breitbart reported: Well, I...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Justice Department review of the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation is “broad in scope and multi-faceted,” and intelligence agencies have already been asked to preserve records and make witnesses available, according to a letter sent to Congress on Monday. Attorney General William Barr said last month that he had directed John Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut and a veteran prosecutor, to determine if law enforcement and intelligence authorities engaged in improper surveillance as they investigated potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign to sway the 2016 presidential election. “It is now well-established...

    The Justice Department on Monday offered more details to Congress on the investigation that Attorney General William Barr ordered into the intelligence collection on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election. In a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said that the inquiry is being primarily conducted by U.S. attorney John Durham out of Justice Department offices in Washington, D.C. Boyd wrote that Durham, the U.S. attorney from Connecticut, is receiving assistance from “number of U.S. Attorney’s Office personnel and other Department employees.” “The Department has made existing office space in Washington...

    Washington (CNN)Attorney General William Barr's review of the origins of the 2016 Russia investigation and surveillance issues surrounding President Donald Trump's campaign will be "broad in scope and multifaceted," examining actions by US and foreign intelligence agencies, "as well as non-governmental organizations and individuals." This latest description of Barr's controversial project was in a letter from the Justice Department to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, marking the first time the department had explained in detail the information being gathered from the intelligence community since Trump granted Barr broad authority to declassify sensitive intelligence materials late last month.

    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...

    Attorney General William Barr said Special Counsel Robert Mueller “could’ve reached a decision” on obstruction in an interview with CBS airing Friday. When asked about Mueller’s Wednesday statement, Barr said he wasn’t sure what Mueller was “suggesting.” Mueller cited 11 instances where President Trump ‘possibly’ obstructed justice. Now, Barr says he’s looking into potential wrongdoing by the U.S. intelligence community. It’s an argument investigative reporter Sara Carter has been making for nearly three years. Carter said former CIA director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, and his boss, former...

    Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence agent who compiled the hoax dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump and Russia, refuses to cooperate with the Department of Justice’s investigation into the origins of the Obama administration’s spying on then-candidate Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to Reuters. A Reuters source close to Steele’s private investigation outfit, Orbis Business Intelligence, said the ex-spy has chosen not to answer questions from Connecticut’s U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was recently appointed by Attorney General William Barr to examine the probe’s origins. Reports of Steele’s unwillingness to cooperate with the Durham comes days after President...

    "Robert Mueller was knee-deep in this scandal, along with Andrew Weissman and the agent sent to prison, but because Reno gave him very limited authority, Durham was not able to prosecute Mueller, who was not in the FBI at the time. Mueller kept four innocent people in jail for years to protect the informant status of Whitey Bulger, a mass-murdering Boston mobster who ended up dying in California, and it ended up costing the government $100 million plus in civil judgments."

    The Federalist ^ | 5/30/2019 | H.A. Goodman
    At a certain point, it can’t be mere coincidence that every major figure involved in probing Trump’s campaign is linked to Hillary Clinton in some manner. The Federal Bureau of Investigation had a budget approaching $10 billion during James Comey’s tenure as its director. Combined with budgets for the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency, these agencies cost taxpayers around $30 billion annually. Therefore, one would think that incriminating evidence derived from the FBI, NSA, or CIA could have linked Donald Trump to Russian hackers or Kremlin operatives, if that evidence existed. Instead, almost all the major findings used...

    John Durham, the prosecutor tapped by Attorney General William Barr to investigate how Trump-Russia allegations emerged and spread within federal law enforcement, has already been looking into whether the FBI’s former top lawyer, James Baker, illegally leaked to reporters. In fact, the U.S. attorney from Connecticut appears to have begun that work more than seven months ago, to judge from an underreported transcript of an October congressional interview with Baker. The Baker interview, at which Durham was not present, suggests that the prosecutor nevertheless has some people very worried. Baker testified about the Trump-Russia affair on Oct. 3 before the...

    In middle school, it's hard to be different. It's even harder if a student identifies as LGBTQ. This week, a couple of teachers at Central Park School for Children in Durham, North Carolina, decided to enlist the help of some local drag queens to celebrate the unique differences between the school's students. Taylor Schmidt, an eighth-grade teacher at the school, and his colleague, Schara Brooks, saw the impact bullying and other negative behavior was having on students in their school who identify as LGBTQ. They said students were even leaving the school because of some of their experiences. In December,...

    It is crucial that the origins of the Russia investigation involving members of the Trump campaign be known. What was the impetus of the two-year probe into those in Trump’s sphere? Why were Trump associates spied on? Why was a document paid for by Democrats, using Russian resources, used in a FISA court to justify surveillance of Trump’s team? To answer these questions and more, Attorney General William Barr has appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to conduct an inquiry. As the Associated Press reported, the inquiry will focus on whether the government’s methods to collect intelligence relating to the Trump...
