criminal investigations of Obama or Biden

Original Article

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Russia collusion investigation is not expected to lead to a criminal investigation of either former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Attorney General William P. Barr said Monday. “As for President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement based on what I know, I don’t expect Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Mr. Barr said. “Our concern of potential criminality is focused on others,” he continued. Mr. Barr also offered vague details into the investigation’s progress saying he has a “general

Please tell me, AG Barr, if those two can get a free pass on treason and an attempted coup, why should any of us ever obey any laws ever again? You might as well call maintenance and have them sandblast the words “Equal Justice Under Law” off the front of the SCOTUS building.

What happened to...'no one is above the law'? Rather convenient when President Trump was in the cross hairs but crickets chirping when it's the beloved muslim marxist and his partner in crime.

Why should Obama, Biden, and the Clinton's be immune from investigations? Haven't I witnessed Trump being investigated for 3 years? Trump answered interrogatories sent over by Mueller. What is with the no investigations or even questions allowed for Democrats? This is not going to do. If Mr. Barr won't do it, then I hope Trump will get someone else.

That is fine, we need to STOP pointing this directly at Obama or Biden, and focus on Brennan, Clapper, Rice, Comey, Strzok, Page, Pientka, etc... The spotlight will eventually cascade up them as either being so out of touch with what was happening in their administration, or they will eventually be implicated in some way. And, he is stating that the DURHAM probe won't likely lead to criminal investigation, but does not rule out other investigations beyond Durham. Don't let the media distract you from the main parts of the investigation and probe by focusing on Obama-Biden, or even Hillary, for that matter. The MSM will protect them all, so don't allow them to distract from the overall investigation and probe.

Great care is taken to shield such people from provable criminality. Plus in the Mulatto's case there is the question of putting together a jury of his peers that will convict. All this goes into the calculation. In an ideal world they would be breaking rocks. But is the world was ideal they would behind Hillary and Bubba.

Only fools couldn’t see this coming. Where’s the Billy Barr Fan Club now that he’s said it himself? What a freakin’ swamp rat. Get his butt out of the DOJ, Mr. President, or stop whining about being a victim. This is sickening (or is it the same ploy used on Flynn - “no worries, you don’t need legal representation”)?

Who is gonna throw themselves upon a sword to protect Hillary? Let's see how this plays out-Barr is playing it veryclose to the vest and doesn;t want to give anything away until indictments start coming down. Who knows where this will lead? A 20 year prison sentence will do wonders for a faulty memory!

So if the part time non tenured lecturer community organizer who never passed the bar punk commits a crime there is nothing to prosecute. If he kills a person in broad daylight and thousands are witnesses there is nothing to see, moving right along. The law just applies to the little people. Rather interesting new law in the US isn't it??

Just confirmation that Durham will issue a report, not indictments. The Republicans once again prove that they are indeed the stupid party. And that we were equally stupid when we chanted “Lock her up!”. Trump rallies will never be the same. Several years after Trump leaves office we’ll learn that in order to avoid tearing apart the country that Trump decided not to prosecute the Obama officials who tore apart the country. Mitt Romney will praise him for this, no matter how foolish it was.

I've kept up with much of this stuff Barr and his crew have been investigating but was never under the delusion ANYONE would actually be prosecuted so haven't taken much of it seriously.

I am not threatening to do it, nor am I advocating that it be done, but am just saying that we have seen enough instances where failure on the part of government to prosecute true and egregious criminality leads to fed up patriots/citizens taking care of matters themselves.

When will they learn that they don't need to answer every question? "Can['t comment on an on-going case..." or "on-going investigation..." let 'em sweat a little. Or, as an old MA politician once said, "Never write when you can speak; never speak when you can nod; never nod when you can wink." They probably don't want to touch the chief executive. I doubt the same courtesy would be afforded to President Trump in 5 years when he returns to civilian life. We're getting weary of the Left skating. But, why should we be surprised? After all, they go to the same private schools, the same prep schools, the same Ivies, the same Ivy law schools. They go to the same parties, marry each other, their children marry the offspring of their fellows; they end up in the same law firms and wall street firms and judgeships, in lots of courts; and one darned day they end up in government, local, State, Federal. There they ply their wares, stuff each other's pockets, give each other's children the plum positions and guaranteed seats in the prestigious schools and firms and on and on and on and on and on and on it goes ad nauseum ad infinitum.

Both Obama and Biden are cleaver enough to have established what is called plausible deniability for anything improper they may have orchestrated. The way to catch them is to have some of their underlings who are being investigated blow the whistle on them to save their own butts. It’s probably not time for that yet.

The keyword there is unlikely. It could be decoy to throw them off and to tamp down tensions. However not surprised by the statement. When an outgoing president is part of a coup to oust an incoming president what is that called? It's a lot more than high crimes and misdemeanors. It will be interesting to see who sings first, who will take the fall and who will try for plea agreement.

I read that many thousands were unmasked during the Obama administration, including Justice Roberts, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Scalini, etc. Who's to say it isn't still happening? It would explain a lot of behavior e.g. Barr, Lindsay Graham, Emmett Sullivan and Trey Gowdy. One of the focuses is porn habits. It would explain a lot.

And this is why the dems keep on and on. Justice is very one sided. If there's a D behind your name, you can do anything. If there's an R behind your name, you can't breath wrong or else you'll get impeached. What is wrong with Barr? President Nixon was impeached for far less than what Obama did. Oh right, there's a D behind Obama's name. Please put a stop to these criminals.

Former President Barack Obama on Saturday criticized President Donald Trump in all but name as he gave a televised commencement address for high school seniors. Obama's message to graduating high school students came at the end of an hourlong television special. Obama panned 'so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs' who do 'what feels good, what's convenient, what's easy.' 'That's how little kids think,' he added, 'which is why things are so screwed up.' The 44th President did not mention Trump by name, but there was no mistaking who he meant.

Phil Murphy has cited the statute frequently the last two months as he’s issued a series of orders to place the state in near-lockdown to fight the coronavirus pandemic. But in an unexpected development, some government agencies in Murphy’s administration have also cited the law to reject requests from media outlets seeking public records related to how the state has responded to an outbreak that has killed more than 10,000 residents

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Russia collusion investigation is not expected to lead to a criminal investigation of either former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Attorney General William P. Barr said Monday. “As for President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement based on what I know, I don’t expect Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Mr. Barr said. “Our concern of potential criminality is focused on others,” he continued. Mr. Barr also offered vague details into the investigation’s progress saying he has a “general

You have more anti-Trump people, by far, than ever before,” Trump said. “Looking for a new outlet!” (Tweet) This tweet came after the president retweeted several posts from conservatives attacking the network.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Ron Wilkins endured 37 days on a ventilator, a failed kidney, medical paralysis and a mountain of medical bills. As he slowly recovers from a near-death bout of COVID-19, the disease brought on by the coronavirus, at an acute-care hospital near San Antonio, Wilkins and his loved ones now face a new worry: States pushing to reopen stores and local economies. (Snip) The debate over how fast states should reignite their economies flared last week when Dr. Rick Bright, a government immunologist, told a Congressional committee that the window is closing fast to prevent the “darkest winter

Even though the FDA says the use of Hydroxychloroquine was up to a patient and their doctor, Monday’s evening newscasts saw ABC, CBS, and NBC clutch their pearls after President Trump admitted he’s been taking the anti-Malaria drug for several days to prevent catching coronavirus. Acting as though he was self-medicating and not telling viewers that the drug needed a prescription to obtain it, which meant his doctor approved it, these liberal networks decried the medial precaution. ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News kicked off their newscasts

Republicans are preparing a multi-million dollar, multi-state effort to recruit volunteers to monitor voting places for fraud, a move that could bolster President Donald Trump's claims Democrats will cheat in the November election. President Trump repeatedly has complained elections are rigged: that Bernie Sanders lost the Democratic primary to Joe Biden because of it, that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in 2016 through cheating, and even last week's California special election, that Republicans won, was rigged.

A friend, who thinks politically as we do here, phoned this morning after just hearing Barr's comments doubting that Obama or Biden would be criminally prosecuted. We both would love to see it, but consider how destructive the Dems' legal efforts to get Trump to testify so they could prosecute him have been for the past three years, and then imagine what could happen if the precedent were set to prosecute future presidents of either party. Such a spectacle would draw worldwide attention and obliterate everything else our country needed to be doing that would have more impact on our country's, and even the world's, future.
