NBC just issued a report verifying that AG Barr has approved expansion of the Durham probe to include scrutiny of both John Brennan and Thomas Clapper.
Naturally, NBC tried to spin this down.
“If Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined. The Justice Department has not detailed any, and a spokeswoman declined to comment for this story.”
Seriously! NBC can’t imagine any potential wrong doing. Media outlets like NBC can never imagine any criminal acts done by anyone other than Donald Trump.
However, even the Peacock shows signs of waking up:
“Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”
NBC called Mulvaney’s comments about the DNC server possibly being in Ukraine and about alleged interference in the 2016 election to be a wild conspiracy theory.
They quote the following from Tom Bossert, Trump’s first homeland security adviser:
“It’s not only a conspiracy, it is completely debunked,” Bossert said. “And at this point I am deeply frustrated with what he and the legal team is doing and repeating that debunked theory to the president. It sticks in his mind when he hears it over and over again and for clarity here … let me just again repeat that it has no validity.”
He continued: “United States government reached its conclusion on attributing to Russia the DNC hack in 2016 before it even communicated it to the FBI, long before the FBI ever knocked on the door at the DNC. So a server inside the DNC was not relevant to our determination to the attribution. It was made up front and beforehand.”
It must take really brilliant analysis to determine that Russia was hacking the DNC server before it was even hacked. Bossert admitted that this was the conclusion before anyone bothered to tell the FBI and before notifying anyone at the DNC. It was certainly before anyone analyzed that server. If anything, this seems to indicate fear that finding that DNC server will destroy the narrative. Otherwise, why pretend it didn’t matter?
These kinds of mistakes are easily ignored by people like Adam Schiff and the fawning MSM. They will not be ignored by people like John Durham and William Barr. At some point, if there is even an attempt to impeach Trump, his lawyers will at least get a chance to cross examine people. If there was a plot to interfere in the 2016 election and then try to overthrow a sitting U.S. President, then it is time for those involved to be afraid, very afraid.
The clock is running out on Democrats. Next Monday there will be only 30 days before Thanksgiving. That will be followed shortly by Christmas and New Year’s. Odds are high that it will be difficult if not impossible to even get an impeachment vote before January. It is also increasingly difficult for someone else to enter the race for the DNC nomination. Any new candidate has about two weeks to even get their name on the ballot.
In the meantime, some people are showing slight signs of actually waking up. When the Peacock crows like this don’t be surprised if other members of the MSM start to wake up too.
