In the same AP article where Attorney General Bill Barr said that the FBI didn’t have evidence of voter fraud, he admitted that he had extended the investigation into Crossfire Hurricane by appointing John Durham to continue his work and released a letter about it to the House of Representatives dated Tuesday, Dec. 1.
“The current investigation, a criminal probe, had begun very broadly but has since “narrowed considerably” and now “really is focused on the activities of the crossfire hurricane investigation within the FBI.” Durham to issue a public report of findings, Eric Carlson of Epoch Times reported.
Members of the Bureaucratic State were not happy:
Barr explained in a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary committees that in May 2019 he directed Durham, a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to investigate some “intelligence and law-enforcement activities related to the 2016 presidential election.”
Barr said he had expected Durham to complete his work by the summer 2020. However, the pandemic and additional information he uncovered prevented him from meeting that deadline.
The attorney general, in the letter, also said that prior to the presidential election he decided to appoint 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.”
“AG Bill Barr has appointed John Durham as a special counsel — meaning he can’t be easily fired even in a new administration — and tells @AP the Durham probe has “narrowed considerably” to focus on the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation,” posted Tom Fitton a member of President Trump’s team to evaluate Judicial appointments.
Catherine Herridge reported, “Order Establishing Special Counsel. Language matters. Criminal. Scope FBI + Mueller team “The Special Counsel is authorized to investigate whether any federal official, employee, or any other person or entity violated the law in connection with the intelligence, counter-intel, or law-enforcement activities directed at the 2016 presidential campaigns, individuals associated with those campaigns + individuals associated with (Trump) administration including but not limited to Crossfire Hurricane” + Special Counsel Mueller.”
“DurhamSpecial Counse lDurham scope is broad + encompasses recently declassified docs. This may set up an 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,” Herridge reported.
Joe Biden was the one who came up with framing General Mike Flynn with violations from the Logan Act.
Evidence emerges that Durham was appointed mid October and that Durham will be focused on the Crossfire Hurricane scandal from within the FBI.
Opponents of Trump feel that Barr made a mistake with the appointment because he has to be from “outside the government”, forgetting that Mueller is a former director of the FBI.
