“…people should not draw from the fact that no action has been taken yet, that that means that people or people are going to get away with wrongdoing.” – Attorney General William Barr
FoxNews.com reports that
Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News’ Bret Baier in an exclusive interview aired Tuesday that Americans will be able to recognize “some” of the names under investigation as part of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into federal surveillance abuses — and that he is “very troubled” by “what has been called to” his attention so far.
Barr asserted that despite the coronavirus pandemic, the Durham team “has been working very aggressively to move forward,” and that there “will be public disclosure” of his findings. Part one of Baier’s interview with Barr aired on Monday.
“I think before the election, I think we’re concerned about the motive force behind the very aggressive investigation that was launched into the Trump campaign without, you know, with a very thin, slender reed as a basis for it,” Barr told Baier. “It seemed that the bureau was sort of spring-loaded at the end of July to drive in there and investigate a campaign.”
The Justice Department’s (DOJ’s) watchdog has identified critical errors in every FBI wiretap application that it audited as part of the fallout from the bureau’s heavily flawed investigation into former Trump adviser Carter Page, who was surveilled during the campaign in part because of a largely discredited dossier funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Additionally, an ex-FBI lawyer in that case even falsified a CIA email submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in order to make Page’s communications with Russians appear nefarious, the DOJ inspector general found. The FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, was allegedly told by the CIA that Page had reported his Russian contacts and was essentially acting as an informant — only for Clinesmith to allegedly omit that exculpatory information in a surveillance warrant application that framed Page’s communications with Russians as a sign that he was a secret foreign agent.
Barr said he couldn’t comment on whether criminal charges were coming, including concerning Clinesmith — but that people shouldn’t become impatient. The DOJ has concluded that the Page warrant was legally improper and lacked probable cause.
“We can’t discuss future charges. But I have to say that I do find a little irritating,” Barr said. “You know, the propensity in the American public on all sides of the political spectrum when they see something they think could be a criminal violation, I say, why hasn’t this person been indicted again? And, you know, there’s the old saying that that the wheels of justice grind slow and they do run slow because we have due process and we follow the process. But people should not draw from the fact that no action has been taken yet, that that means that people or people are going to get away with wrongdoing.”
The attorney general emphasized, however, that he wasn’t concerned about criticisms of the Durham probe in an election year.
“For the first time in American history, police organizations and the national security organizations were used to spy on a campaign, and there was no basis for it,” Barr said. “The media largely drove that — and all kinds of sensational claims were being made about the president that could have affected the election. And then and then later on, in his administration, there were actions taken that really appear to be efforts to sabotage his campaign. And that has to be looked at. And if people want to say that I’m political because I am looking at those potential abuses of power, so be it. But that’s the job of the attorney general.”
One of those “familiar names” alluded to by Attorney General Barr may be Stefan Halper.
Who is he?
To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.
This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.
According to The Institute for World Politics, he is a Research Professor…
From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.
His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia
Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.
1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80 National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980 National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:
The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, Va.
1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown.

“[Stephen] Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin.” Now, this is new. Halper is part of the MI6 bunch in the U.K. that partnered with the FBI and agents from Harvard and Yale. This is the Oxford-Cambridge, Harvard-Yale connection with the intelligence apparatus of both countries. What it all means here so that Halper just another link from the Clinton campaign to the Russians in creating all of this phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ roll stuff on Trump, including the dossier. – Rush Limbaugh 8/28/18
With a list of accomplishments like those above, and the work he did for the Obama Administration’s Department of Defense, Halper made the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign. And as Rush Limbaugh said a while back, Harper is another link tying the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, the Clintons, and the rest of the phony FISA Dossier-related stuff all together.
This “contractor” evidently pulled a lot of weight in the previous Administration.
So, what does all of this mean?
It means that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the Department of Justice and President Obama “read in”, embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party. Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump.
And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Economics to sell you.
Obama and his “Deep State” Operatives made Nixon look like an amateur.
Grab the popcorn.
Things are about to get interesting.
