If you were reading the Wall Street Journal late last week, you might have noticed a story about a federal prosecutor, John Durham, from Connecticut. He is the man that Attorney General William Barr tapped a year ago to look into irregularities allegedly committed surrounding the 2016 election, possibly by high-ranking officials in our intelligence community. All of America is absorbed with the coronavirus pandemic. I am, too, but there are other matters of great import to be decided before this year is out. Durham’s investigation is one of them.
According to the Journal, when Durham became anxious about canceled flights to Washington, he personally drove down I-95 in March in his own vehicle to continue his investigations. If you have seen pictures of the steely-eyed prosecutor, you will agree with me that I-95 was to be avoided when the prosecutor was driving down it. I would not want to have a fender-bender with him.
Apparently he has been asking a lot of questions hither and yon, in the UK, in Italy, and in Australia. Yet his real focus is apparently Washington. He seems interested in the uses to which former British spy Christopher Steele’s now-discredited dossier was put and by whom. He has been asking questions of CIA officials and persons at the National Intelligence Council. It is a center within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which organized the collaboration of the CIA, the FBI, and the National Security Agency (NSA). Readers of this column may recollect that I observed back in 2017 that all these offices worked together at the behest of one man back in 2016 and 2017. That man would be John Brennan, the head of CIA. As my colleague, George Neumayr, noted in a column in 2018, Brennan’s agglutination of intelligence agencies was given the Orwellian designation “inter-agency taskforce.” Full Story - American Spectator - R.

Corruption, Nepotism, Malfeasance and Chicanery of Democratic Politicians
Show me a prominent Democrat, and chances are there's a suppressed scandal in their History. Show me a prominent Democrat that is 'scandal-free' and chances are they're newbies who just haven't been caught yet. Americans are fond of ridiculing foreign regimes as inherently corrupt banana republics, and coconut kingdoms where graft is the rule of thumb. Wake up America, people who live in glass houses should definitely not throw stones.
