Attorney General William "Bill" Barr presented us with US Attorney John Durham to head up the investigation into the origins of the Deep State coup attempt also known as "SPYGATE", and the "Russia Investigation". Sources tell PRC that Durham is known as a " Serious, hard-charging bulldog". Sources has also informed PRC that Durham is already up to speed, and has actually been looking into these issues for weeks.
Durham has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes, and the Boston FBI office's relationship with mobsters. He is set to continue to serve as the chief federal prosecutor in Connecticut.
Why Another Investigation?
This will run concurrent with the investigations currently underway by the Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz. But, the IG does not have prosecutorial power. He can only recommend prosecutions to the Justice Department who would then have to follow up. But, John Durham has prosecutorial power and will likely use the evidence the IG has already collected, as well as others, to move this investigation along at a good pace. Sources have told PRC that the IG is nearing completion of his investigation.
We just presented evidence of where all of this is heading in our previous article: "SPYGATE: Leaked Classified SIGINT Proves All Roads Lead To Barack Obama". If that is any indication of what is to come, then it's going to be a very interesting Summer/Fall. The classified SIGINT is part of the documents that the House Intelligence Committee has regarding their investigation into Russian efforts to affect our voters in the 2016 election. Calls for Trump to de-classify the FISA documents have been ringing out on an almost daily basis. Trump, in his most recent interview said that he will do so, when "they need it", signalling that it will coincide with the reports and conclusions of investigations by the Inspector General and John Durham.
This move comes as the Trump administration has pushed for answers on why federal authorities conducted the surveillance, as well as, whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors. Sources have told PRC that Rudy Giuliani has been tasked to travel to the Ukraine to look into reports of their collusion with the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the DNC, to bring down their political rival in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Sources familiar with matter say the focus of the probe includes the pre-transition period, prior to Nov. 7, 2016, including the use and initiation of informants, as well as, potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses.
An informant working for U.S. intelligence posed as a Cambridge University research assistant in September 2016 to try extracting any possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia from George Papadopoulos, then a Trump foreign policy adviser, it emerged earlier this month. Papadopoulos told Fox News the informant tried to "seduce" him as part of the "bizarre" episode.
Republicans also have been looking for answers from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber, who was appointed a year ago by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review not only surveillance abuses by the FBI and DOJ, but also authorities' handling of the probe into the Clinton Foundation.
Huber, Republicans have cautioned, apparently has made little progress and has spoken to few key witnesses and whistleblowers. But, in January, then-Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker reportedly indicated at a private meeting that Huber's work was continuing apace.
Durham's appointment comes about a month after Barr told members of Congress he believed "spying did occur" on the Trump campaign in 2016. He later said he didn't mean anything pejorative and was gathering a team to look into the origins of the special counsel's investigation.
Democrats have pummeled Barr in frustration following revelations in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russian actors, despite numerous offers by Russians to assist the campaign. Mueller's final report has led to a bitter D.C. battle over the limited number of redactions in the report, which the DOJ says are legally necessary because they pertain to grand jury matters.
In obtaining a secret FISA warrant to surveil former Trump aide Carter Page, the FBI copy-pasted directly from a disputed Washington Post opinion article to suggest the Trump campaign may have been compromised. The bureau also repeatedly assured the court that it "did not believe" British ex-spy Christopher Steele was the direct source for a Yahoo News article implicating Page in Russian collusion.
