1. If the Swamp crooks haven't been frightened up to now, they'll be TERRIFIED now.

A G Barr appoints John Durham to review origins of Russian enquiry.

NOTE : NO SPECIAL COUNSEL. Barr's going to make this a hard-core, DOJ led investigation.

By one of DOJs toughest attorneys. A hard SOB, John Durham.

Oh, man.

Also notice in the announcement of Durham the NYT cannot resist pushing the bulllshit narrative of the past 2.5 years.

The Mueller report reaffirmed that the F.B.I. opened its investigation based on legitimate factors, including revelations that a Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, had told a diplomat from Australia, a close American ally, that he was informed that the Russians had stolen Democratic emails.

@REX

And this risible bullshit

F.B.I. agents and federal prosecutors also obtained approval from the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to wiretap Mr. Page after he left the campaign.

cont.

Mr. Trump’s allies have pointed to the warrant as major evidence that law enforcement officials were abusing their authority, but the investigation was opened based on separate information and the warrant was one small aspect in a sprawling inquiry that grew to include more than 2,800 subpoenas, nearly 500 search warrants and about 500 witness interviews.
