This ain't his first rodeo...

 

No, it isn't jim.  But let's let the man speak for himself.  The following is the Questionnaire John H. Durham completed for the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary when he was nominated as Connecticut’s U.S. Attorney, dated 11-6-2017.  (He doesn't mention any "rodeo")

Thank you Mick for posting the House Committees', Defendants, 5-10-19 response to dt's request for a prelimanary injunction.  I found it facinating.  I cannot find that a judge has ruled on it yet.  Seems that should be soon though.

What I did find was Plaintiff trump's "Reply" to the Committees, in support of his Motion, filed yesterday, 5-15-19.

I belive when a ruling does come, a judge will find for the Defendants.  Any dt supporter would do well to read both documents.  That would especially be you jim...since this is your topic.  And if the going gets tough?  Just keep repeating "rule of law, rule of law".

 

I also found more interesting pleadings re this investigation with the compiler's particular take on these matters.

After the Russians spent a million and a half per month to give the election to a moron, it was pretty obvious. Even the Republicans could not argue that we needed an investigation.........although they tried.

Just let the investigation take itself where the facts are. Heard that before. Let's wait and see.

That's a great idea - too bad you dont feel the same way about the Investigation into Trump

 

Or maybe you do - let's ask

 

The Investigation into Trump is being illegally & unconstitutionally obstructed by Trump

 

If your post is really Credible - then I'd like to hear you say -

 

Trump should provide the requested documents & testimony

 

And what was that - that you said - let the investigation take us where the facts are

 

That's sounds very reasonable & if Trump wont let the Investigation take US wherever the FACTS are - he should be Impeached

 

RIGHT?

 

 

 


You already reached a conclusion... so that's not investigation, right? Investigations are neutral and surely you and your ilk are nothing of the sort.  The investigation by Mueller is over. If the dems want to start a "different" one... fine, but they don't get a "do over". Go to court for the redacted portions. 

 

I can explain things to you but I can't understand them for you.

WHO IS JOHN DURHAM, THE MAN ASSIGNED TO EXAMINE THE ORIGINS OF THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION?

BY:  Mary Margaret Olohan | Reporter

 

  • Attorney General William Barr reportedly assigned U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation.
  • President Donald Trump nominated Durham to his current position as the Connecticut U.S. attorney in 2017. 
  • He enjoys a bipartisan reputation and successful track record in investigating high-profile cases including Whitey Bulger and CIA abuse of terrorism suspects.

 

Attorney General William Barr reportedly assigned U.S. Attorney John H. Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation, but this is not the first high-profile case Durham has undertaken.

Durham became a Justice Department lawyer in 1982 and has conducted special investigations for both the Republican and Democratic Parties, The New York Timesreported Monday.

 

Durham went after Connecticut street gangs in 1992 and prosecuted mobsters in the Gambino, Genovese and Patriarca crime families, TIME Magazine reported. Durham was also responsible for exposing former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland’s corruption in 2004, which led to the governor spending a year in prison.

 

Former Attorney General Janet Reno commissioned Durham to investigate the FBI’s relationship with informant and Boston mobster Whitey Bulger in 1999. Durham’s team was responsible for indicting Bulger cronies Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi and special agent John Connolly Jr. who are portrayed in “Black Mass,” according to The Day.

 

Durham also investigated a case at the request of former Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey in 2008 involving videotapes the CIA destroyed that depicted the torture of terrorism suspects. He further examined the CIA’s handling of detainees at the request of former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. under the Obama administration in 2009, according to The NYT.

 

President Donald Trump nominated Durham in 2017 to be Connecticut’s U.S. attorney. Durham received bipartisan support and the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed him in February 2018, according to New York Magazine.

 

“Though a registered Republican, Durham generally is regarded as apolitical,” The Washington Post reported in 2009 as Durham began to investigate the CIA.

 

“We are confident that Durham will continue this record of success in providing strong leadership to the office. … John Durham has earned immense respect as a no-nonsense, fierce, and fair prosecutor,” Democratic Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy said when they recommended him to Trump, according to Heavy.

“Colleagues say Durham is thorough and cautious in deciding whether a case deserves to be prosecuted,” a TIME Magazine article noted of Durham in 2009. “But once he fixes on a target, the veteran lawyer usually catches his prey.”

 

Durham is married to Susan Durham and has four sons and eight grandchildren. Two of his sons are prosecutors.

 

“Other than an overwhelming commitment to the cause of justice, the two great devotions of John’s life are his Catholic faith and his family,” John Durham’s longtime friend and colleague, Deputy Chief State’s Attorney Leonard C. Boyle, said in 2018, according to The Day.

 

Boyle also added that John Durham has “an extreme work ethic” and strong abilities to take the complicated details of a case and “weave it together into a tapestry of detail.”

 

John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation is the third known investigation into the 2016 election and potential Russian interference, according to The NYT. (RELATED: Russia Probe Under The Microscope? Barr Reportedly Taps US Attorney Known For Investigatin...

 

Trump and his officials have encouraged the Justice Department to appoint one person to investigate why Trump associates were spied upon, particularly after the release of the special counsel’s report.

This is going to be very interesting.

Perhaps we could just term this as a continuation of lies and false accusations by barr, and certainly by trump. Let the public hear Mueller testify and read the unredacted report along with supporting information. 

Patience...no thanks. Past time for the real evidence to show up.

most of the Aides who worked with Trump in 2016, are already in prison for their crimes related to the Mueller investigation. The only holdout so far is Trump, unfortunately, but I think his time may be coming...stay tuned.

I don't think it will take 2+ years to investigate the dirty tricks propogated by the Dumocrats and it could spell jail for some.@Nothappening...........I don't think it will take 2+ years either. If someone finally has the konoles to put the right people in prison, it should be over and the country will be better and safer for the move.
