Calling “deadbeat” Durham, come in “deadbeat” Durham…, are you there “deadbeat” Durham?

Well, I guess they had us all fooled when they appointed John Durham, the former United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, as Special Counsel for the Department of Justice to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

Durham was billed as this “bulldog” of an investigator, who was going to get to the bottom of it all, and start dishing out some justice.

Like I said, I guess we all fell for it once again.

Stupid us, thinking some of these treasonous “swamp” vermin would finally pay the price for their actions.  

Thomas Barrabi of Fox News reports, “Donald Trump mockingly wondered if Special Counsel John Durham is still alive, as the prosecutor’s probe drags on into the origins of the FBI’s ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation of his 2016 campaign’s alleged ties to Russia.”

“Durham has been probing the matter for about two years and was officially appointed a ‘special counsel’ by former Attorney General Barr last October. Trump has long referred to the FBI’s Russia investigation as a ‘hoax’ and has been hoping to see more results from Durham’s investigation.”

‘“Where’s Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?’ Trump said in a statement.”

Oh, he’s living and breathing alright…, but is a “swamp donkey” technically classified as a “human being?” 

I guess he would be.

“Trump has accused FBI officials of improper conduct during their investigation.”

And former President Trump has been proven to be right on almost all of his assertions.

“Special Counsel Robert Mueller found insufficient evidence to prove collusion between members of the Trump 2016 campaign and Russia.”

Mueller’s “evidence” was not only “insufficient,” it was non-existent!

You know if Mueller and his hit squad could have found ANYTHING, they would have ran with it. 

In a report from February 2, 2021, Brooke Singman of Fox News reports that, “Attorney General Bill Barr says Special Counsel John Durham is ‘making good progress’ in his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.”

“Good progress?!!!”

“Good progress,” in Barr’s eyes, apparently means no progress. 

“Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation is largely focused on the activities of the FBI as he reviews the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Fox News has learned, but sources familiar with the investigation said the prosecution of high-level FBI officials, like former Director James Comey, is ‘unlikely.’”

It’s “unlikely” because “swamp donkeys,” like James Comey, are not held to the same legal standards as someone like General Flynn, for example.

“Sources told Fox News that the investigation is ongoing and Durham completed the CIA portion of his investigation last year — and has now shifted his focus to activities of the FBI.”

Oh, goodie!

“Durham’s investigation has produced one criminal charge so far, against former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was accused of altering an email related to the surveillance of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. That prosecution, though, did not allege a broader conspiracy within the FBI, and the conduct it involved had largely been laid out in a Justice Department inspector general report from last December.”

“Clinesmith in August pleaded guilty to making a false statement to Durham’s team. The offense carried a maximum term of imprisonment of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.”

“Last week, Clinesmith was sentenced to 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service, and no fine.”

What an absolute joke.

Just to be clear, any of us “non-swampers” out here would be sitting in jail right now.

Just sayin’.    

In an article for Law.com, C. Ryan Barber, January 29, 2021, reported that, “U.S. District Judge James Boasberg of the District of Columbia said he believed the former FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, did not knowingly insert an inaccuracy into the email to mislead a secretive surveillance court as it considered extending the surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.”

“Boasberg, a 2011 appointee to the federal trial court in Washington, [this means he’s a verified “swamp rat”] said his review of the evidence against Clinesmith suggested the former FBI lawyer’s conduct was an ‘inappropriate shortcut’ to save him work. ‘But I don’t believe he was attempting to achieve an end he knew was wrong,’ Boasberg said.”

Really?

You know, the last time I got a ticket for speeding, I wasn’t intentionally trying to break the law either!

Do you think I’d have a case if I appealed my ticket to Boasberg’s court?

“Still, Boasberg said Clinesmith’s conduct had struck at the ‘very core of what the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court)] fundamentally relies on,’ namely candor and accuracy from the government, in reviewing applications for national security wiretaps.”

Ha!

So, even so, we’re going to overlook all of that.

Singman continues, “The Justice Department relied on Clinesmith’s assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to surveil Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act [FISA].

“Durham’s investigation began in May 2019, shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller completed his years-long investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.”

“Mueller’s investigation yielded no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 election.”

Although, the truth be told, they never really expected to find any “evidence” of Russian collusion, since they were the ones who made that whole thing up!

They were really just hoping to uncover, something, anything, to tie to President Trump…, and they couldn’t even do that.

“Meanwhile, in December, Durham expanded his team, adding new prosecutors, after former Attorney General Bill Barr appointed him in October as special counsel to ensure he could continue his investigation during the Biden Administration.”

“In the scope order, obtained by Fox News, Barr stated that Durham ‘is authorized to investigate whether any federal official, employee, or any other person or entity violated the law in connection with the intelligence, counter-intelligence, or law-enforcement activities directed at the 2016 presidential campaigns, individuals associated with those campaigns, and individuals associated with the administration of President Donald J. Trump, including but not limited to Crossfire Hurricane and the investigation of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III.’”

Is that supposed to make us all feel better about Durham’s “investigation?”

“Under U.S. code, the special counsel would produce a ‘confidential report’ and is ordered to ‘submit to the Attorney General a final report, and such interim reports as he deems appropriate in a form that will permit public dissemination.’”

And what’s with all of these secret “confidential reports?”

In case any of you people have forgotten, you work for the American people, and we pay the bills.

Hiding the findings of your reports behind “national security” is etting pretty old.

We know the only “security” you’re protecting is your own.

“As for Comey, the former FBI director last year said Durham’s probe was not concerning for him.”

‘“I have had no contact with him and haven’t talked to him,’ Comey told CBS News’ ‘Face the Nation’ in August. ‘I can’t imagine that I’m a target.’”

That’s funny, because I can’t imagine you wouldn’t be!

“A spokesman for Comey did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

Again, that’s odd.

“Also, over the summer, Durham’s team questioned former CIA Director John Brennan for some eight hours at CIA headquarters. Brennan later said through a spokesman he was assured he was ‘not a target.’”

“Brennan, in December, during an appearance on ‘Fox News Sunday,’ said he had no problem with Durham’s investigation continuing into 2021.”

‘“I think that is fine, I have no problems with it,’ Brennan said, adding that he has already sat down with Durham’s team for eight hours. ‘I do believe that John Durham is going to carry out his responsibilities ably and hopefully not with any political influence.’”

Sooo, Brennan hopes Durham’s investigation isn’t like Mueller’s investigation?

These “swamp monsters” really crack me up.  

Barrabi continues, “Durham and other U.S. attorneys who served under the Trump administration were asked to resign earlier this year after Biden entered the White House. Durham stepped down from his post as U.S. attorney for Connecticut but retained his status as special counsel for purposes of his ‘RussiaGate’ probe.”

President Biden has pledged not to interfere with Justice Department investigations.

Excuse us, Illegitimate Joe, if your “pledge” means nothing to us, based on the rest of your “pledges.” 

“Last year, the Senate Intelligence Committee published a five-part report detailing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Officials said some of the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russian officials were a ‘grave counterintelligence threat,’ but ‘found no evidence’ that Trump or members of his campaign colluded with Russia.”

There’s that annoying “but found no evidence” acknowledgement again.  

“The committee also determined that FBI officials gave ‘unjustified credence’ to allegations levied in the infamous Steele dossier, an unverified report compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Is it really a case of “unjustified credence” when it was they who concocted the whole treasonous scenario in the first place?

Now that Illegitimate joe is in office, with Merrick Garland as the Attorney General, we shouldn’t expect any of these “investigations” to produce anything. 

I’m sorry, former President Trump, you may have to wait until 2022, or 2024, when you’re re-elected.

“Paging John Durham, paging John Durham.”

Where the hell are you, John Durham?!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reports that, “[General] Flynn slams Durham, Senate for slow probes: ‘We’re sick and tired of waiting’”

“Generally” speaking, General Flynn is right!

“[General] Flynn spoke out a day after his criminal case was dismissed.”

“Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn expressed impatience over the drawn-out investigations of the Russia probe’s origins that are being carried out by John Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticizing both for not moving more swiftly.”

“In an interview with FOX Business’ ‘Mornings with Maria [Bartiromo],’ Flynn spoke out on the circumstances surrounding his criminal case — which spun out of the FBI’s Russia investigation — a day after Judge Emmet Sullivan dismissed it due to a pardon from President Trump.”

‘“We’re sick and tired of waiting,’ Flynn said about Durham’s probe.”

Yes, we are General.

First, they told us his report would be ready by late spring…, then by early summer…, then by late summer…, and then by early fall.

Then we were informed he didn’t want to release his report so close to the election.

Well, THE ELECTION IS OVER!!!

IT’S BEEN OVER THREE MONTHS NOW!!!

Please…, I’m dying to hear your new release date and you your latest excuse.

“Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, has been looking into the FBI’s actions in the early stages of their investigation of the Trump campaign for potential ties to Russian interference with the 2016 election.”

As a side note, Connecticut is really just one big suburb of New York City…, so, that’s where Durham is coming from.  It may help put his actions, or lack thereof, in a more understandable perspective. 

“A Department of Justice Inspector General report revealed that the FBI made misrepresentations to a court when seeking a warrant to investigate former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, and documents released pertaining to the FBI’s investigation of Flynn cast doubt on their motives. Handwritten FBI notes indicated that there was an internal question as to whether the bureau interviewed Flynn in order to learn the truth or to get him to lie so authorities could pressure him with prosecution or termination.”

“Flynn was then charged and pleaded guilty to giving false statements regarding his communication with a Russian ambassador.”

This after threatening to destroy his son’s life, as well as his, if he didn’t plead guilty.

What can you say about these slimy, deep state, turds?

“His [Flynn’s] lawyers claimed that notes from former FBI official Peter Strzok showed that then-FBI Director James Comey downplayed Flynn’s calls during the presidential transition with Russia’s ambassador as ‘legit’ during a meeting where then-President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden also weighed in.”

“Durham’s investigation of the Russia probe has yielded a guilty plea from former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith, who admitted to doctoring an email that was used to support an application to monitor Page, but so far there has been nothing in terms of accountability for anyone higher up in the FBI or DOJ.”

Clinesmith was obviously deemed expendable and got thrown under the bus. I’m sure he was compensated quite nicely to “take one for the team” and to keep his mouth shut. 

Clinesmith has since received the harshest of penalties…, probation.

What a joke.

Is there any question we have a two-tiered “justice” system?

‘“I would give a lot of room, space to Bill Barr,’ Flynn said about the attorney general, claiming that Barr has had to deal with a ‘swampy Department of Justice.’ He was less forgiving of Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been conducting their own investigation.”

I wouldn’t be that empathetic to Bill Barr, General Flynn.  He may have been dealing with a “swampy” Department of (in)Justice, but he was the boss over there after all.

‘“If you’re going to do something, do it,’ Flynn said about the Senate committee. The committee has already held multiple hearings on the subject which have featured testimony from figures including former FBI director James Comey and former acting director Andrew McCabe. The hearings have so far failed to determine who knew what about the FBI’s failures, as the former leaders have claimed ignorance or a lack of memory when asked for names.”

That’s odd!

“McCabe accused Comey, McCabe, and former CIA director John Brennan of being ‘arrogant’ and ‘smug,’ and said they lied to the American people about the Russia investigation while the media enabled them.”

“As for his particular case, Flynn said it is clear what the FBI’s motive was.”

‘“We all know that this was an effort to get Flynn to get Trump,’ he said. Flynn accused government agencies of having ‘an anti-American bent,’ while praising President Trump for his accomplishments in the face of adversity.”

‘“Look at what President Trump has been able to do despite the kinds of assault that he’s been under,’ Flynn said.”

Agreed.

“Flynn also addressed President Barack Obama, who advised Trump during the transition period not to hire Flynn. Flynn claimed that Obama feared him because he wanted to take on Washington, D.C.’s ‘bloated’ bureaucracy.”

‘“He still should be afraid of me,’ Flynn said of Obama, although he did not explain why.”

“Flynn concluded by speaking out about November’s presidential election and was confident that when the legal challenges are done, President Trump will prevail.”

‘“If you ask Mike Flynn on a scale of one to 10 who’s going to be the next president, I’ll tell you that it’s a 10 that it’s going to be Donald Trump,’ he said.”

I had hoped you’d be right, General Flynn, but sadly the democrats managed to keep President Trump from getting a second term. It was imperative to them that he not be re-elected, by hook or by crook.  

All of these “investigations” (Spygate, Hillary’s email, the attempted “deep state” coup by the FBI and DOJ, Hunter Biden, election fraud, etc.) will now quietly die in the “swampy” quicksand of the corrupt “deep state,” democrat, beaurocracy…, with the help of their co-conspirators, the fake news, mainstream media.

Yes, my friends, it’s sad state of affairs…, and it doesn’t look to get better anytime soon.

TREASON!

With all of the unbelievable evidence being unearthed as a result of the General Flynn debacle, and the release of previously suppressed depositions regarding Russian Collusion investigations, and the illegal FISA warrant applications, and the coordinated coup attempt by numerous democrats and numerous democrat “deep state” scum, assisted by their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda fake news media…, there is no longer ANY question about their TREASONOUS behavior.

ahomage 20

And make no mistake about it…, we are definitely talking about TREASON against The United States of America and its citizens.

TREASON is defined as follows: “In law, treason is criminal disloyalty, typically to the state. It is a crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s nation or sovereign. This usually includes things such as participating in a war against one’s native country, attempting to overthrow its government, spying on its military, its diplomats, or its secret services for a hostile and foreign power, or attempting to kill its head of state. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.”

Furthermore, according to 18 U.S. Code § 2381 regarding Treason: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

I, personally, would be just fine seeing these traitors walked out in front of a firing squad and shot.  That punishment may seem a bit extreme, but consider the crime(s).

Their actions have gone WAY beyond any kind of political gamesmanship.

Their actions had the intention of removing a duly elected president of These United States by ANY means necessary.  Illegal means, fraudulent means, unconstitutional means, or any other kind of dubious means.

Yes…, their actions went WAY beyond any kind of political gamesmanship.  These democrats and “deep state” democrats clearly, unmistakingly, and unapologetically, crossed the line into the disgraceful world of HIGH TREASON and TRAITOROUS behavior.

I pray that they all face justice and pay dearly for their crimes.

Here is an homage of memes I have put together regarding this collection of treasonous vermin.
