Durham Probe Becomes Criminal Investigation

Do all roads lead to America’s Intelligence community..i.e. James Clapper, John Brennan, et al? According to breaking news, the John Durham probe has become a criminal investigation after information uncovered when AG Barr recently visited Italy, once by himself and once with US Attorney John Durham.

“In order to conceal the fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign had originated this, they set up an information laundering scheme… The Clinton campaign paid for it, but they used a law firm Perkins Coie that then used Fusion GPS that then used Christopher Steele.  Steele would then disseminate the information to Bruce Ohr at the FBI, who would be debriefed by a handler, who would then pass the information on to Peter Strzok, who would pass the information on to Andrew McCabe, who would pass the information on to James Comey. It’s similar to a money-laundering scheme. The whole point was to disguise the origins.”  Gregg Jarrett to Fox News

The Durham probe, the IG report, AG Barr

In order to unravel that confusing pile of intrigue, Barr and Durham travelled to Italy, which featured prominently as a place to meet for some of the players to plan their attacks on the Trump campaign. They asked for verification of US Intelligence actions during the time period leading up to the 2016 election and beyond. At issue: Obama Administration players John Brennan and James Clapper.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The two Obama administration officials were at the helm when the unverified and largely discredited Steele dossier, written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, was used to justify a secret surveillance warrant against former Trump adviser Carter Page.

In Italy, Barr reportedly told embassy officials he “needed a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.”

A source in the Italian Ministry of Justice told The Daily Beast earlier this month that Barr and Durham were played a taped deposition made by Joseph Mifsud, the professor who allegedly told ex-Trump aide George Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. Mifsud reportedly was explaining to authorities in the deposition why people would want to harm him, and why he needed police protection. Fox

The Federalist asked this question about all the Russian connections:

“Were the Russia connections contrived by the CIA, and was Brennan the plotter-in-chief hoping to prevent a President Trump—or to destroy him later?”

As the plot thickens and more information comes to light, it is clear that numerous deep state operatives have been after Donald Trump since the moment he entered the Presidential race. He wasn’t one of “them” and still is not.

Kill shot?
Even General Michael Flynn was at the tip of the spear, as his attorney alleges that the FBI manipulated the interview (the Peter Strzok 302 form) and conspired to destroy him. One allegation is that Clapper urged a Washington Post reporter, David Ignatius, to take the “kill shot” on General Flynn. Of course he denies making that statement.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz is supposed to release his report on FISA court abuses soon. But since it has been put off, it makes some of us skeptical that it will contain any wrongdoing on the part of people like Comey, Clapper, and Brennan.
Word that the Durham probe has moved to a criminal investigation simply means that he can now issue subpoenas and call witnesses. Geraldo says there will be a “run” on defense attorneys in DC.  But we’ll see.
The ‘deep state’ is heavily rooted in corruption, power, and money. Donald Trump has worked hard to chop off  their tendrils and it has cost him dearly.
