Durham's investigation is now criminal probe

The Justice Department’s internal review of spying on the Trump campaign has evolved into a criminal investigation, according to anonymous sources who spoke to the Associated Press and The New York Times.

Attorney General William Barr assigned U.S. Attorney John Durham on May 13 to review the origins of the Obama administration’s counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign.

The designation as a formal criminal investigation gives Durham’s team the ability to issue subpoenas, impanel a grand jury, compel witnesses to give testimony and bring federal criminal charges.

It is unclear what potential crimes are being investigated and when the inquiry turned into a criminal one.

Top Obama-administration officials were involved in several forms of spying on the Trump campaign, including the use of a maximally intrusive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant of Trump-campaign associate Carter Page. The government also deployed at least two spies and used intelligence collected by overseas sources.

The FBI’s counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign began in late July of 2016 and eventually evolved into Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe. Peter Strzok, the agent who led the FBI probe, sent messages expressing animus against Trump, spoke of stopping Trump from becoming president, mentioned an insurance policy in case Trump was elected, and mentioned impeachment shortly after joining the Mueller team.

Mueller concluded the Russia investigation earlier this year, finding insufficient evidence to establish that anyone colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

If anyone thinks that anyone within 15 miles of Manafort isn't or shouldn't be watched after he went to work for Russian proxies in the Ukraine is willfully naive.

Once Trump had the story on this guy, he did the rational thing and got the fuck rid of him.

When this is written out long hand, you'll see that intelligence agency / LE interest in Manafort went back at least a decade before working for Trump and, my sense, Obama's people gave Trump's campaign a friendly 'think twice' notice once Manafort was announced as campaign chair.

Yet when the Vice President's son was getting paid millions from Ukrainian and Chinese proxies, it was considered business as usual and not worth spying or investigating.

I am sure this information is stored as well, in case it is needed at some point.

You'd be surprised at the extent to which CIA's work involves reading the trade presses here and overseas.

I'm disappointed in you accusing Trump of rational behavior.

Hubert will be the first one indicted from what I understand along with the Rod Rosenstein indictments.

I'd say that anyone dabbling in E. European politics or oil/gas business should be suspect unless proven otherwise.

Wonder who it is that flipped. Maybe Rosenstein?

Another investigation. So ho hum. How long has it been since anybody has been indicted and imprisoned on anything but a partisan motivated selective prosecution procedural crime frame job?

Remember Barr shaking his sweating wattles and vowing to get to the bottom of the Epstein non-suicide?

Epstein? Who's Epstein? Oh, that, just fogeddaboutit.

Likely Hunter Biden was being tracked. Stupid fuck is easy enough to follow in the trade magazines.

Tillerson probably had any story worth knowing about the appointment.

I'm just waiting to see where the moral decay of the Republicans & Democrats lead America.
