BAM! It’s a quick uppercut to the jaw of the Deep State delivered via Attorney General William Barr in the form of a brutally powerful statement following today’s release of the IG report.
AG Barr makes clear he has the Deep State in his sights and he appears fully prepared to take this to the finish line.
Indictments are coming…
And don’t forget, the AG’s statement came within hours of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s own official rebuke of the IG report as well as detailed by D.C. Whispers HERE
AG Barr went even further than Durham in his condemnation of the attempted coup against President Trump:
“The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken. It is also clear that, from its inception, the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory. Nevertheless, the investigation and surveillance was pushed forward for the duration of the campaign and deep into President Trump’s administration. In the rush to obtain and maintain FISA surveillance of Trump campaign associates, FBI officials misled the FISA court, omitted critical exculpatory facts from their filings, and suppressed or ignored information negating the reliability of their principal source. The Inspector General found the explanations given for these actions unsatisfactory. While most of the misconduct identified by the Inspector General was committed in 2016 and 2017 by a small group of now-former FBI officials, the malfeasance and misfeasance detailed in the Inspector General’s report reflects a clear abuse of the FISA process.”
MALFEASANCE AND MISFEASANCE – those are terms reserved exclusively for people who committed crimes and are particularly serious when associated with government officials.
Remember, the Attorney General has access to information that the Inspector General did not, and also has the power to arrest.
If you were disappointed in the lack of serious fireworks via today’s IG report then you haven’t been following the D.C. reports close enough. The IG report was never going to be the “big” moment where justice finally prevails against the Deep State.
That moment is coming in the forms of Attorney General Barr and U.S. Attorney Durham. Read AG Barr’s statement above once again if you need further convincing. That is a very strong condemnation and signals indictments are in fact coming. Whispers suggest early 2020.
