William Barr Delivers Chilling Message to FBI for Trump

A third probe into the origins of the Russia investigation, even to pacify the paranoid president, may cause real harm.

If you come at the king, you best not miss.

That’s the message Attorney General William Barr is sending to FBI agents, whether intentionally or not. Barr has authorized yet another investigation into the FBI’s conduct probing links between Russian election interference and the Trump campaign. Even though two other entities are already investigating the same matter, reports indicate that Barr has appointed Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia probe.

In doing so, Barr is playing into the hands of President Donald Trump, who has already characterized Durham’s assignment as an investigation into “how that whole hoax got started.”

The most charitable interpretation of Barr’s behavior in defense of Trump is that he believes strongly in a “unitary executive,” where the president can order any investigation he wants. But in his quest to protect the presidency, Barr is damaging our national security. His complicity in Trump’s efforts to disparage the FBI will make it more difficult for agents to do their jobs and could discourage investigations of those in power.

1. Durham was appointed by trump in 2018.

His wiki page has some interesting cases, including former investigations of the FBI and a classified report if torture.

5. "Barr is playing into the hands of the buffoon"

No, he is part of the cabal, he has been part of it for many years and that is the reason why he does what he does. He is a corrupt ideologue SOB and he must be impeached, the problem is that Democrats do not seem to have the courage to do it.

We need to start forcing our elected officials from the Democratic party to do the right thing.

6. They won't make a black/white finding wrt start of probe. Their goal is to find

a 't' that isn't crossed....an email that they can make sound suspicious...some doubt even if fbi was 99% justified in their investigation. They will play up the doubt so that elected gop officials and judges can hang their hats on resisting subpoenas, gaining a single vote against conviction/impeachment, giving Hannity something to crow about for a month.

Whatever Durham finds, it will be bent by Barr toward keeping Trump in office. At least until war starts or the 2020 election rolls around.

We won't get closure...we'll get confusion, chaos, uncertainty, misinformation, wasted time. Unless...gop decides they've had enough, and we all know what depending on the gop for leadership and governance gets us.

7. Drumph's attempt to create a voter fraud finding collapsed in a heap.

Hope this one backfires bigly too.
