Barack Obama thought that Joe Biden would destroy a worrying investigation.
But that no longer is a possibility.
William Barr made one move that sent Barack Obama into a frenzy of fear.
The way the Obama administration treated the Trump campaign is utterly scandalous.
The FBI under Obama spied on members of the Trump campaign using the Steele Dossier, information that was paid for by the Clinton campaign as the basis.
It was a horrible abuse of power against a political rival and it needs to be thoroughly investigated.
The Durham investigation has been set up to conduct this investigation and is focused on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation within the FBI.
Barr says Durham is authorized “to investigate whether any federal official, employee or any person or entity violated the law in connection with the intelligence, counter-intelligence or law enforcement activities” directed at the 2016 presidential campaigns,but more specifically the Trump campaign.
The Democrats would love to be able to squash the investigation.
However, Attorney General William Barr has appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to be special counsel.
This means that Durham will have “extra protection” and it will be harder if there is an incoming Democratic administration that wants to fire Durham.
Barr made this change to protect the Durham investigation in October before the presidential election. “I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.
Barr also revealed to the Senate Judiciary Committees that Durham had uncovered “additional information.”
“Although I had expected Mr. Durham to complete his work by the summer of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as additional information he uncovered, prevented him from doing so,” Barr wrote. “In advance of the presidential election, I decided to appoint Mr. Durham as a Special Counsel to provide him and his team with the assurance that they could complete their work, without regard to the outcome of the election.”
“Special Counsel Durham scope is broad + encompasses recently declassified docs,” CBS News Investigative Reporter Catherine Herridge noted. “This may set up interesting dynamic with nexus to then VP Biden. Declassified records include unmasking @GenFlynn + Jan 2017 WH meeting where, according to notes, ‘VP’ raised Logan Act.”
When the FBI listens to foreign nationals over the phone talking to an American citizen they are supposed to “mask” the identity of the American.
However, Joe Biden specifically asked to know Michael Flynn’s identity be revealed even though Flynn’s call with the Russian ambassador was perfectly appropriate.
Before this information was released Biden tried to deny that he was involved at all in the surveillance of Trump’s campaign.
“I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in May and claimed that it was a “diversion.”
