The dominoes are falling!
Just days after the charges against General Michael Flynn were dropped by the Department of Justice, it has been revealed that John Durham is moving "full-throttle" on the Russian probe review.
Specifically, Durham is investigating the origins of the Russia probe.
Multiple sources confirm that top federal prosecutors are involved in the review.
President Trump even brought attention to the issue with a series of "OBAMAGATE" tweets.
#Obamagate was the #1 trending topic on Twitter with over 1.48 million tweets.
Every day, it appears that more and more evidence is released that undermines the origins of the Russia probe.
First, newly unveiled FBI documents showed that General Flynn was "set up" and that dirty FBI agents were TRYING to get him to lie.
Then over 50 pages of material were declassified by the House, showing that James Clapper claimed he never briefed Obama on Flynn-Russia phone calls.
Former FBI Director James Comey claimed that it was Clapper himself who briefed Obama.
Andrew McCabe confirmed Comey's statements in his recently published book.
Now, it appears that there's even more evidence for John Durham to review in regards to the Russia probe. Per Fox News:
U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham is going “full throttle” with his review into the origins of the investigation into suspected Russia-Trump coordination in the 2016 election, with additional top prosecutors involved in looking at different components of the original probe, sources told Fox News.
Two sources told Fox News that Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri who was tapped by the Justice Department in February to review the case of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, is continuing to help with Durham’s investigation even after the DOJ’s move last week to drop the case against Flynn.
The sources told Fox News that interim U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Timothy Shea is also assisting with components of the investigation.
“They farmed the investigation out because it is too much for Durham and he didn’t want to be distracted,” one of the sources told Fox News.
“He’s going full throttle, and they’re looking at everything,” the source told Fox News.
The Justice Department declined to comment on Jensen and Shea’s involvement.
Any indication that Durham could be building a case against anyone involved in the original Russia probe, however, is sure to inflame tensions between the Trump administration and congressional Democrats -- who already are ramping up accusations that these Justice Department reviews have become politicized. They slammed Attorney General Bill Barr for the DOJ’s decision Thursday to drop the Flynn case.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who was a key figure during Trump's impeachment proceedings, called the decision “outrageous."
vThe retired Army lieutenant general for months has been trying to withdraw his plea, aided by a new attorney aggressively challenging the prosecution’s case and conduct.
Breadcrumbs were being dropped in the days preceding the decision that his case could be reconsidered. Documents unsealed the prior week by the Justice Department revealed agents discussed their motivations for interviewing him in the Russia probe – questioning whether they wanted to "get him to lie" so he'd be fired or prosecuted, or get him to admit wrongdoing. Flynn allies howled over the revelations, arguing that he essentially had been set up in a perjury trap. In that interview, Flynn did not admit wrongdoing and instead was accused of lying about his contacts with the then-Russian ambassador – to which he pleaded guilty.
Jensen reportedly was the one who recommended dropping the case to Barr.
President Trump promised to drain the swamp, and if this new report is any indication, the swamp has a massive reckoning coming its way!
Divisive investigations, witchhunts, and impeachments attempts have not damaged President Trump.
Rather, they've only deepened political divisions and have exposed corruption at the highest levels of government.
Very little is known publicly about Durham's work.
Much of the review has taken place behind the scenes with very few leaks to the national media.
However, General Barr confirms that the evidence appears to be a pattern of misconduct and corruption, not sloppiness.
According to the National Review:
U.S. attorney general William Barr implied in an interview Thursday that U.S. Attorney John Durham is prepared to prosecute former intelligence community officials if evidence shows they illegally surveilled the 2016 Trump campaign over allegations of collusion with Russia.
Barr, who tasked Durham last May to review the origins of the Russia investigation, told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham that the Connecticut U.S. attorney is “looking to bring to justice people who were engaged in abuses if he can show that there were criminal violations.”
“My own view is that the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness, there was something far more troubling here; and we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” Barr stated. “And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted.”
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani predicts that there will be massive indictments as a result of the investigation.
Specifically, Giuliani predicts that Barr will prosecute Comey for "treason," the Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, believes the Justice Department has former FBI Director James Comey cornered.
Giuliani said he had no insider information but predicted that Attorney General William Barr is preparing to bring charges against Comey for his role in the case against Trump’s former national security adviser retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
“I think they have Comey,” Giuliani told John Catsimatidis on Sunday's The Cats Roundtable radio show.
Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States before Trump entered the White House. The Justice Department filed to dismiss the charges against Flynn on Thursday, agreeing with Flynn’s attorneys that his interview with the FBI should never have taken place because his conversations with the Russian diplomat were “entirely appropriate.”
Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told special counsel Robert Mueller’s team that she and Comey disagreed about how the Flynn case should be handled, according to newly released notes.
Giuliani described Comey’s actions as being as “close to treason as you can get" and stated his belief that former CIA Director John Brennan "orchestrated" the effort.
“They wanted to take out the lawfully elected president of the United States. And they wanted to do it by lying. Submitting false affidavits. Using phony witnesses. In other words, they wanted to do it by illegal means. What is overthrowing the government by illegal means? … It’s treason,” he said.
His comments echo that of Trump, who celebrated the Justice Department's move to drop the Flynn case and said what the "Obama administration Justice Department" did was "treason."
Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the Russia inquiry.
With so much new evidence being declassified, we wouldn't be surprised if Durham has a wealth of information not already available to the public.
We don't know exactly what he knows, but if this many people close to President Trump are confident of corruption, we know that something sinister is definitely stirring in the swamp.
It's only a matter of time until the truth comes out!
