The Department of Justice’s sweeping investigation into the origins of its Trump-Russia probe is now a criminal investigation, according to the New York Times and NBC News. The development comes after a Monday report stating Attorney General William Barr has expanded his department’s review, noting that U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is heading up the review, has “found something significant and critics should be careful.”

Seems to me Durham should expand his investigation into the faux Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine too including investigating demonrat congressional politicians like Jabba and Pencil Neck. Others too. One poster took me to another article about the soon to be released every week for eons IG report. Apparently the IG said there was little redaction. I take that to mean nothing to see if the report. The FBI/DOJ dirty rotten FISA abuse is being covered up.

Schiff and Nadler have already released statements calling this a plot by Trump and his stooge Barr to obstruct their impeachment inquiry. Good luck with that tactic.

Re #4, that will come from the Grand Jury. They are the ones who issue indictments after reviewing evidence, hearing testimony, etc. Durham has been providing them with that…continues to do so. That is why Barr brought Durham in.

Once the indictments start rolling, and they will, this basement impeachment charade will go up in smoke. The Democrats have known all along that this was coming.

To briefly recap–Sidney Powell filed a motion (see my piece about Michael Flynn’s motion to compel production of Brady material).

About two dozen frustrated House Republicans on Wednesday stormed the secret room where House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been running the closed-door impeachment inquiry. Led by House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the Republican lawmakers attempted to enter the room where Schiff has been bringing in current and former State Department officials to testify on whether President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine in exchange for alleged help with the 2020 election. A senior Pentagon official working on Ukraine, Laura Cooper, was scheduled to testify, but due restrictions set by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Schiff, members of the Armed Services Committee

The Big Fake News today is that Ukraine’s top diplomat, William Taylor, delivered a smoking gun to Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) secret impeachment hearings. That is not hyperbole, those are the headlines — “smoking gun.” So here we are again with Russian Collusion 2 in full swing, with the WALLS CLOSING IN ON TRUMP, and all of it backed by a coordinated news cycle about how President Trump is toast, done, over and out, corrupt and kaput fer realzies this time.

Joe Biden has come under fire his double standard after he lambasted Donald Trump as 'despicable' for comparing the impeachment inquiry to 'a lynching', when he made the same comparison himself in a resurfaced 1998 interview in defense of Bill Clinton. On Tuesday Trump took to Twitter to call slam the inquiry into his presidency as 'a lynching'. 'So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching. But we will WIN!' he tweeted.

Motorists in socialist Venezuela have long enjoyed the world’s cheapest gasoline, with fuel so heavily subsidized that a full tank these days costs a tiny fraction of a US penny. But the economy is in such shambles that drivers are now paying for fill-ups with a little food, a candy bar or just a cigarette. Bartering at the pump has taken off as hyperinflation makes Venezuela’s paper currency, the bolivar, hard to find and renders some denominations all but worthless, so that nobody will accept them. Without cash in their wallets, drivers often hand gas station attendants a bag of rice, cooking oil or whatever is within reach.

A massive drug bust in Southern California led to the confiscation of 18 pounds of fentanyl — enough to create 4 million lethal doses, authorities said. The huge seizure amounted to half of the fentanyl snagged in Orange County this year, with investigators nabbing about $1.25 million worth of the deadly opioid last Wednesday, the Orange County Register reported. “The threat this extremely potent drug poses to our community is increasing exponentially, not subsiding,” Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said in a statement. The sheriff’s office said they also seized a semi-automatic handgun, heroin, methamphetamine and $71,000 in cash.

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen took aim at President Trump in a new interview Friday, saying the president doesn't "grasp" the meaning of being an American. In an interview on "CBS This Morning," host Gayle King asked Springsteen about a recent Trump rally in which the president bragged that his election victory in 2016 was accomplished without the support of celebrities like Springsteen, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. "You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" King asked. "Not really. Anything's possible," the New Jersey musician responded. King noted that "a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country," with Springsteen agreeing that it's a "very frightening time" in America.

The firm said that "flight shaming," which it defines as "the inherent guilt that an individual feels as a result of one's aviation-related carbon footprint" is causing consumers to explore alternative modes of transportation when possible and to look for ways to offset their carbon emissions. Citi estimates that over the next five years the cost of carbon offsetting economy flights will grow to $3.8 billion per year. It will either be absorbed by the

A fascinating look inside Democrats’ deepest fears about 2020 comes from a Bloomberg columnist. Democrats are afraid of President Trump expanding his voting base to people who haven’t voted in recent elections. (snip) what if Trump represents not a last gasp of cultural and racial revanchism but a new wave? What if the trickle of white men who voted for the first time in years in Wisconsin in 2016, despite widespread predictions that Trump’s candidacy was doomed, is followed in 2020 by a wave of previously nonvoting white males who conclude that Trump’s brand of tribal aggression is at last something worth voting for?

On Friday during Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) funeral, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton used a Biblical analogy to take a veiled shot at President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump. Clinton was comparing Cummings to his namesake, the Biblical prophet Elijah, who stood up against wicked King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. Clinton said, “Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven — but he also prayed and worked for healing.” She added, “Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.” The crowd roared in acknowledgment.

Shocking photographs of Democrat Katie Hill posing naked with a tattoo of what appears to be a Nazi-era Iron Cross on her bikini line while smoking a bong and making out with her young female aide have been obtained exclusively by DailyMail(dot)com. The congresswoman, 32, was also pictured naked brushing the young woman's hair, who DailyMail(dot)com can identity as Morgan Desjardins, 24, from Santa Clarita, California. Desjardins began a relationship with Hill and Heslep shortly after she started working for Hill in 2017, before the three-way affair broke down this summer when Hill told both her husband and her

I think I know what the deal is with all the gushing adoration Tulsi Gabbard has somehow managed to wrangle from ordinarily sensible conservatives. Think of a regular guy walking down the hall in high school, and the head cheerleader passes by and says, “Hi.” The dude’s going to think she’s awesome. Of course, just because she is polite doesn’t mean Regular Joe is ever going to take her to the prom. Tulsi gets Strange New Conservative Respect for several reasons, but the primary one is that she doesn’t seem to hate our guts. She is what an opponent should be – an opponent, not an enemy.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham condemned as "nuts" the actions of more than two dozen House Republicans who stormed a closed-door deposition of Defense Department official Laura Cooper on Wednesday afternoon. "They’re making a run in the SCIF! That’s not the way to do it. That’s nuts," Graham said as the GOP House members remained in the Capitol basement, stalling the House Intelligence Committee's questioning of Cooper. The group of rogue congresspeople was led by Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, who has been sharply critical of the Democrats' secrecy in the early stages of an impeachment probe against President Trump.
