@john258 Spying on a political campaign is a big deal.  It needs to be investigated and if it did take place, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  It's the only way to repair the reputation of the worlds stellar law enforcement agencies inside the US Government.  Get aboard or get out of the way...  We finally have an AG that will get it done.

President Trump with Attorney General William Barr: Newly empowered.
 

This effort is expected to accelerate following Trump’s decision Thursday to empower Attorney General William Barr to declassify CIA, Pentagon, and Director of National Intelligence documents as necessary to access “information or intelligence that relates to the attorney general’s review” of the Russia probe.

 

In other words, he’s gaining the authority needed to investigate the investigators.

 

CIA sources immediately objected in the New York Times that assets’ lives would be at risk, stunting Langley’s ability to recruit. Perhaps. But the argument is a bit shopworn, raising the question whether intelligence managers are looking to protect their agents and sources, or aiming to protect themselves.

 

There are a growing number of indicators that the leading players in the 2016 election drama are turning on one another, making a mad dash for the lifeboats to escape being dragged under with the political Titanic that is Christopher Steele and his dossier. These are many of the same people who had been eager to exploit the dossier, that collection of memos paid for by the Clinton campaign and supposedly sourced from Russia. Once treated like the Rosetta stone of collusion, the Steele documents now seem even to Trump antagonists more like the Howard Hughes diaries.

Hey, President Obama, remember, What goes around comes around...

 

 

 


Still at it. You see the far right really pushing this subject as their leadership knows if they can win here it will lead to their ability to put people in jail for criticizing Trump, and to deflect from a story now developing about Barr. That story is about Barr and the law firm he worked for. Seems it had a clients a lot of the Russians who fund trump, along with the Russian bank that was involved. They got Trump in to Russia, and supplied the money for his projects. They are all close to Putin. Looks like Putin could have all the US secret intel from the JD, and FBI by now. With this new move they will get all of our intel from every branch who collects it. That will give Putin the name of the Russian who gave the CIA the information that Russia was going to interfere in our 2016 election. He can then kill him or her. Our far right Reb. at work.

What is Mr. Barr doing?

 

The attorney general has echoed the president’s concerns about spying on Mr. Trump’s campaign. Mr. Barr recently assigned John H. Durham, the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut, to examine the origins of the Russia investigation in a review that the attorney general is overseeing.

 

Mr. Barr also wants to know what the C.I.A. and other American intelligence agencies were doing in 2016 and what they knew about Russia’s effort to sabotage the election. The C.I.A. director, Gina Haspel, was the agency’s station chief in London in 2016 when Australian officials passed Mr. Papadopoulos’s information about Russia’s email hacking to the United States and when Mr. Halper arranged his meeting with Mr. Papadopoulos. It is not clear what Ms. Haspel knew about the operation, but a person familiar with the events said that the British intelligence service MI-5 was made aware of F.B.I. activities in London.

 

On Friday, the president said he hoped that Mr. Barr would look at Britain: “We’re going to find out what happened and why it happened.”

To answer your question ‘What is Mr. Barr doing’ - he is corrupting the DoJ for partisan purposes.


What are you basing your comment on?  

 

That is your opinion.  

 

Got it, you hate Trump so everything has to be about carrying out that action.  

 

Go for it, 2020 election is around the corner.

 

You guys are just too funny!! (and predictable I might add)

What A Joke!! And a potential threat to our National security and security around the World. 

Again, trump sinks the presidency to another lower than low than low. 

 

And I cannot understand how those that support this illegitimate investigation and clown show, can consider themselves Patriots and Americans. How?


What threat to security do you see?? As far as revealing intel sources I'm sure we can count on common sense in that area. But remember, there were calls (here and elsewhere) for full release of the Mueller report.

Well, trump is the object of the last 2.5 years, and they are still tracking him. It’s what happens when you are working with an enemy.  And now he is continuing his obstructing and subverting our justice system. And now he’s being overruled in the courts. 

Investigating the investigators is another piece of trump wanting to be an authoritarian ruler and destroying our country. 

Who wants to live under a dictatorship?

trump, barr, and putin want you to. 


Stop watching CNN and return to the real world. The Mueller investigation is over and both Mueller and Barr said "no collusion and no obstruction of justice".  You and the left can pretend that the investigation is still "on track" but it is OVER!  Next the real investigation of the left begins which will end up in some Dems going to jail!
