(Aug. 6, 2019) — On Tuesday night’s “Hannity,” host Sean Hannity said more than once that his sources have informed him that once U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia “collusion” probe is completed, it “will shock the conscience of a nation.”

Earlier this year, Durham was tasked by Attorney General William Barr to launch a probe into the predicate for the FBI’s opening of a counterintelligence operation into the 2016 Trump campaign given that a follow-on 22-month probe completed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his 19 prosecutors found insufficient evidence of a conspiracy between Trump campaign aides and the Russian government.

FBI officials opened the probe at some point during the campaign cycle, with the official date said to be July 31, 2016.  However, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes claims it began in 2015 by targeting Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret) after he spoke at an event in Russia.

The U.S. intelligence community would later leak portions of Flynn’s conversations during the 2016 transition period with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to The Washington Post.  Trump had selected Flynn to be his national-security adviser, a position which came to an abrupt end on February 13, 2017 as a result of the leaked transcripts and what appeared to be Flynn’s mischaracterization of the substance of his calls with Kislyak.

Currently U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, Durham has acquired a reputation for conducting non-partisan investigations over many years, including into members of the intelligence community.  In the 1990s, he successfully prosecuted then-FBI Special Agent John Connolly for shielding Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger when Mueller was serving as an assistant U.S. attorney for the district.

Later in Tuesday’s program, investigative journalist Sara A. Carter said her sources have indicated that Durham’s investigation is proceeding rapidly.

Last week, John Solomon of The Hill reported that Durham’s office was able to conduct a recorded interview with the mysterious Joseph Mifsud, who in April 2016 approached then-Trump informal campaign adviser George Papadopoulos to say that “Russians” possessed potentially-incriminating information on Hillary Clinton, likely in the form of emails from the private server she used when she served as Barack Hussein Obama’s secretary of state.

Papadopoulos, who was interviewed by members of Congress and the Special Counsel’s office, the latter of which successfully prosecuted him for lying to the FBI, has come to believe that the U.S. intelligence community, in tandem with European intelligence services, was dispatching informants to “entrap” him.

In his July 24 sworn congressional testimony, Mueller did not dispute that his team determined that Mifsud lied to U.S. authorities in early 2017 but that his team declined to prosecute him.

Since Trump took office in January 2017, the leadership of the FBI and Justice Department have undergone significant personnel changes. FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired in March 2018; Counterintelligence Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok was fired in August 2018. Strzok’s supervisor, William Preistap, retired; FBI Director James Comey was fired in May 2017; and Comey’s General Counsel, James Baker, was demoted and later resigned in May 2018.

Comey is believed to be at the center of a forthcoming DOJ Inspector General’s report, the release of which has been delayed because of new information which has reportedly come to light.

On Tuesday Strzok filed a lawsuit against the FBI and Justice Department, claiming that he was fired for “political” reasons.  McCabe has also taken legal action stemming form his termination, although not directly refuting its basis that he “lacked candor” when interviewed by the inspector general’s office about media leaks.

Both Strzok and McCabe have demonstrated a political animus toward Trump.

  1. Hi Sharon,

    And “whew” dittos to OPOVV

    Whew to his entire post and especially the last paragraph where he refers to one known enemy that is within our gates: “…and the Joint Chiefs of Staff still allow Muslims to be in our military, and…”.

    Another known enemy that is within our gates and has been using the internationalist Muslim jihadis as sock puppets is the Marxist internationalists. It looks like the WW2 Nazi Muslim ummah (community), which has, for 1400 years, had a theocratic global vision of conquest, has been infiltrated by atheistic internationalist Marxists and has become a hybrid, the Nazi/Marxist Muslim “ummah”, and some internationalist hybrids are being allowed into our military by the Joint Chiefs. The internationalist Muslims are not “using” the Marxists as “sock puppets”, it is the internationalist Marxists who are “using” (i.e., they, as atheist theists even “pray” 5 times daily) the Muslims as “sock puppets”.

    While not all Muslims are jihadis, it seems that all jihadis are Muslims, aka Nazi Muslim, aka Muslim Nazi, aka, Marxist Muslim, aka Muslim Marxist (= M&M = different colors). Since Islam is not a race, opposition to Muslim conquest is not racist. Also, “islamophobia” should not continue to be construed as meaning that non-Muslims “fear” Islam. Instead, control the language to promote freedom and start responding to the “islamophobia” trope by saying that “islamophobia” really means that Muslims “fear” non-Muslims. It is Islamists who have the phobia of non-Muslims, and that is why they do not want to dialogue about “change” within Islam and instead go straight for the jugular vein because, as their “how-to-be-holy” book says, they are to go for the throat if the non-Muslim will not convert to Islam.

    Robert Spencer from Jihad Watch, who used to educate U.S. government agencies about Islam until BHObama swamp creatures removed him from his position and stopped the use of certain words related to Islam, still doesn’t get respect from the U.S. government after 8 years of BHO and almost 3 years of DJT.

    Well, at least Robert still has his Twitter account with the white check mark on the blue background. Also, Kevin Shipp is speaking out too. See Kevin’s YouTube video while it is still active –

  2. I’ve been in the thick of it, in the muck and the mire, since the night that Barry Soetoro, aka Barack “WHERE’S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?” Obama, was nominated to represent the – what’s a flat-line meter called? An EKG machine? Thank you – anti-America Socialist Party nitwits Democrats.

    Shortly after my first editorial for The P&E, I started to receive information from active duty members of our military from all over the world. Some communications were even sent from ships at sea and from the Pentagon. But as soon as we all realized that Obama was, indeed, trying to “fundamentally transform America” and that it wasn’t good news for any of us, my military sources started to dry-up. But when AG Eric Holder refused to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation – as soon as it became apparent that Obama had no respect for our Constitution – my sources completely shutdown; dried-up overnight.

    But that’s not the point of my comment: the point is that everyone is still afraid to speak-out; to be a whistle-blower; to expose the truth. And that’s too bad, because when we used to hear about the truth about the Rules of Engagement from Afghanistan; when we learned about the Muslim men with little boys, beating women and animals, the sources went dark, and dark they have stayed. Everyone is still afraid of the Obots and the Deep State.

    LTC Terry Lakin hasn’t been pardoned and the Joint Chiefs of Staff still allow Muslims to be in our military, and as long as those conditions remain the same, we’ll still be kept in the dark as far as what our military personal are thinking and doing these days.


  3. I’ll be satisfied when Hillary Clinton and the person who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama, are held accountable for their treason.

  4. The results of this investigation better shock the conscience of our nation to the extent that our nation demands the indictment, arrest, trial, conviction and imprisonment of anyone/everyone associated with the attempted coup of the presidency of Donald J. Trump and/or associated with entrapping then prosecuting members of his campaign, transition team and administration.

    If that doesn’t happen then “We the people…” have lost our nation.
