Attorney General William Barr’s probe into the Russian collusion investigation’s origins has turned into a criminal investigation, according to a New York Times report.
Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham started the review in May, and the precise date of when it turned into a criminal investigation is unclear. The change in the nature of the effort may indicate that serious proof was found of illegal behavior by rogue members of the federal deep state.
Durham now has the power to subpoena testimony from witnesses relevant to the investigation, create a grand jury, and levy criminal charges.
The fake news media is already freaking out over the news.
“This is the Justice Department investigating itself, potentially bringing criminal charges against its own officials. That itself would be — that would get you a page in the history books under any circumstances. Under these particular circumstances, it’s — this is stunning,” MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said on her show Thursday night.
It was bad enough Trump and Barr were wasting resources on this. But now they are fully weaponizing DOJ for political purposes.
Attorneys General *can* be impeached. https://t.co/Pm2sJaXjRw

It has always been extremely clear that Trump viewed DOJ as a vehicle to protect himself and his allies and punish his foes. Barr is just willing to carry that out. And the Fox propaganda apparatus is there to point out targets and stir up confusion.

Democratic officials are panicking over the possible ramifications of this news as well.
Yes, Barr must be disBarred. But let’s stay focused: all evidence suggests @realDonaldTrump used your money to extort Ukraine. Nothing matters more than holding him — and him first — accountable. Stunts like this are Trump-directed distraction devices. https://t.co/UOMcBzaaf3

While the Democrats are desperate to discredit this ongoing criminal investigation, they conveniently overlook the fact that Durham has a sterling reputation.
Before Barr called upon Durham to lead the probe, Democratic senators from the state of Connecticut praised him effusively as a man of impeccable character when he was nominated to the post of U.S. attorney:
It will be difficult for Democrats to impugn the reputation of Durham, who has an unblemished record of public service going back decades.
Sens. Dick ‘Da Nang’ Blumenthal (D-CT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) even wrote a gushing endorsement of Durham after Trump nominated him as a U.S. attorney in 2017.
“John Durham has earned immense respect as a no-nonsense, fierce and fair prosecutor, and we are pleased that the White House has agreed with our recommendation that he serve as United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut,” Blumenthal and Murphy said.
The left-wing, anti-Trump officials talked about Durham’s exemplary record and praised him effusively.
“As an Assistant United States Attorney, John Durham has proven himself time and time again in some of the most challenging and sensitive cases,” they said.
In their press release, Blumenthal and Murphy advertised Durham’s record of qualifications including his work “on the U.S. Department of Justice’s Boston Strike Force on Organized Crime, where he led the high-profile prosecution of former Supervisory FBI Special Agency John J. Connolly and mob bosses James “Whitey” Bulger, and Stephen “the Rifleman” Flemmi.”
The Democrats are clearly terrified of what Durham has uncovered, as the chickens are coming home to roost following their failed coup attempt against President Donald Trump.
Deep State Profiles Coronavirus Protesters as Domestic Terrorists, Warns of Violence From Anti-Quarantine Demonstrators
This is the new war on terror.
The deep state is demonizing protesters who are taking to the streets because their livelihoods are being destroyed as a domestic terrorist threat.
The federal government is warning the so-called essential workers and government bureaucrats that they may be targeted by anti-quarantine demonstrators with violent attacks. The feds have transitioned from focusing on ISIS and Al Qaeda to profiling freedom lovers in fighting their war on terror.
“Some illicit actors probably will view any continued state-mandated orders as government overreach, and anticipated safety guidelines and policies—specifically the use of face masks—probably also will serve as a driving factor behind continued violent incidents related to the pandemic,” analysts with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wrote in their assessment.
Protesters have been demonized because they have demonstrated their 2nd Amendment rights at anti-lockdown rallies across the country. However, the actual instances of violence have come from authorities enforcing the Draconian policies instituted primarily by Democrat governors across the nation.
Big League Politics reported on one woman who was dragged out of the Michigan Capitol for attempting to report on the legislature, suffering horrible injuries and having a PTSD-induced panic attack in the process:
Anti-quarantine protesters in Michigan are claiming that they were accosted by security personnel while protesting inside the Capitol against the shutdown that is crippling the state economy.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been the target of high-profile protests in recent weeks due to her restrictions on Michigan citizens. Her goons have hassled Michigan residents for boating, cited people for gathering outdoors in private backyards, and put thousands of small businesses out of commission. This caused protesters to gather outside of her taxpayer-funded mansion last week, and commence the historic “Operation Gridlock” display that has since gone viral and spread throughout the country.
Graphic videos have been posted on social media of protesters being physically removed from the Capitol premises. One protester, Michigan United for Liberty organizer Wendy Darling, received particularly harsh treatment. During one stretch of the video, she can be seen having a panic attack. She reported suffering serious injuries and needing to be hospitalized because of how she was treated by security personnel in the Capitol.
“I went above and beyond to get extra press credentials today and then they wouldn’t let us in and wouldn’t let the Capitol Police come in and took upon theirself to assault and battery me,” Darling said in a video address to her supporters describing the abusive treatment she received while awaiting her X-rays in a local hospital.
“The numbness from the panic attack is wearing off. In a lot of pain. Whole right side of body, head, neck, back, my right wrist is the worst from the Friction burns,” Darling wrote about her incident in the Michigan United for Liberty group on Facebook.
The deep state is demonizing the anti-quarantine protesters just like they demonized President Trump as a Russian agent. This is their latest scam to maintain their stranglehold on power and keep lockdown tyranny in place heading into this year’s crucial election.
