Sen. Chuck Grassley: “Durham should be producing some fruit of his labor”


The Department of Justice, led by Attorney General William Barr, is currently working overtime to root out corruption that led to the Russia Collusion hoax.

Barr charged U.S. Attorney John Durham with heading the investigation and so far he’s found may concerning matters with how the FBI conducted the Russia investigation.

Barr, unfortunately, may wait to prosecute until after Election Day.

His reasoning being that he does not want to appear to be influencing an election.

Shouldn’t those who committed crimes be charged as soon as possible regardless of whether it’s an election year?

That’s how Senator Chuck Grassley, the oldest Republican senator, sees it!

Here’s Senator Grassley’s tweets from early Monday:

Fox News has further details on the matter:

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Monday said it was "SAD" that Attorney General William Barr might wait until after Election Day to initiate prosecutions related to U.S. Attorney John Durham's ongoing probe into FBI and CIA misconduct.

Barr told Fox News last month that Americans be able to recognize "some" of the names under investigation in Durham's probe, and that he is "very troubled" by "what has been called to" his attention so far. Among other issues, Durham is reviewing whether federal agencies abused their surveillance powers to pursue figures associated with the Trump campaign.

"@realDonaldTrump #CommonSense IF NO PROSECUTIONS TIL AFTER ELECTIONS SAD SAD //just think Flynn Mueller Impeachment/ The deep state is so deep that ppl get away w political crimes/Durham shld be producing some fruit of his labor [sic]," Grassley tweeted.

The Justice Department's (DOJ's) watchdog has identified critical errors in every FBI wiretap application that it audited as part of the fallout from the bureau's heavily flawed investigation into former Trump adviser Carter Page, who was surveilled during the campaign in part because of a largely discredited dossier funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Additionally, an ex-FBI lawyer in that case even falsified a CIA email submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in order to make Page's communications with Russians appear nefarious, the DOJ inspector general found. The FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, was allegedly told by the CIA that Page had reported his Russian contacts and was essentially acting as an informant -- only for Clinesmith to allegedly omit that exculpatory information in a surveillance warrant application that framed Page's communications with Russians as a sign that he was a secret foreign agent.

And internal FBI documents unsealed in April indicate that Peter Strzok -- the now-disgraced anti-Trump former head of FBI counterintelligence -- ordered the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn to remain open even after it was slated to be closed due to a lack of so-called "derogatory" information. The materials surfaced just a day after explosive FBI communications revealed that top bureau officials discussed their motivations for interviewing Flynn in the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 -- and openly questioned if their "goal" was "to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired."

Here's Twitter responses to Grassley's tweets:

Democrats will cry foul regardless of whether there are prosecutions now or later.

So Durham and the DOJ might as well get to work and root out the Deep State corruption as soon as possible!

Just a few weeks ago, The Hill reported how Barr promised further developments in the Durham investigation this summer:

Attorney General William Barr said Sunday that “developments” in U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe are expected this summer.

Barr told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that Durham is “pressing ahead as hard as he can” with the investigation, but he was surprised about the lack of public interest in his probe. 

"So that has been surprising to me, that people aren't concerned about civil liberties and the integrity of our governmental process," Barr said.

"In terms of the future of Durham's investigation, you know, he's pressing ahead as hard as he can,” he added. “And I expect that, you know, we will have some developments hopefully before the end of the summer."

The attorney general said the coronavirus pandemic has delayed the probe, but Durham has made progress. The investigation is expected to continue after November’s election but “what happens after the election may depend on who wins,” Barr said.
