John Brennan escapes prosecution
in John Durham investigation: Report

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 8/8/2020 4:39:49 AM

Former CIA Director John Brennan appears to have dodged prosecution in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation. After NBC News reported Thursday that Brennan agreed to do an interview with Durham, signaling that his investigation is nearing its end, a lawyer familiar with the situation told NPR that the Obama-era CIA director has been told he is not a target of prosecutors. Instead, this source said, the interview will mainly consist of technical questions. The news is sure to disappoint some of President Trump's most ardent supporters who believe Brennan and other top officials in the Obama administration

I would indeed be very disappointed because there would no justice in the Democrat version of Marxist America. Please vote for our great President Trump, the best ever.

Well, here we go again folks,,,,,if this story is true the mighty escape prosecution again. Durham and Barr are not going to indict their old buddies who they know well and probably are still socializing with . They may throw out a few indictments for a few underlings but not the hot shots (Comey, et al) just to make it look like they have been hard at it for the last year or so. Total BS from beginning to the end a huge cost to the taxpayers.

Maybe I am a conspiracy theorist but all along I knew the real traitors would never see Justice..This certainly proves beyond any doubt that Barr, whose best friend is the criminal Mueller, is a hack coverup artist and never intended put on anything but a show for the deplorables!

We kept being told for over a year that Bull Durham was doing the job, that you could tell by the tight lid he was keeping on leaks. Now we find that Bull was doing nothing, and there were no leaks, because Bull and Barr did not want the taxpayers to know they were getting paid for nothing.

I am really starting to think this republic isn't worth saving. So many people are too big to be held accountable even for pedophilia. It might be better just to send Kim Jung Il the coordinates for DC and be done with it.

The source is NBC news. I don't believe anything until I see the report. However, I listened to Dan Bongino's podcast and he laid out the case quite clearly that the "fall guy" for Spygate will probably be Comey.

Many of the gang over at Free Republic think this is fake news.. I hope they are right. But I have a feeling that it was just another play in the D.C. Kabuki Theater, stringing us along, and pulling the football away at the last second, just like Lucy did to Charlie Brown so often.

Yes, I would be disappointed if Brennan, Clapper and Comey all sailed off into the Sunset. Disappointed, but not surprised! Look at the Clintons. He was re-elected after the Lewinsky Affair. She should have gone to jail when the private Servers were found out. And All of them, Bill, Hillary and Chelsey should have gone to jail for the millions they made from the Clinton Foundation Scam. Just goes to show you that we actually DO have Untouchables in this country!

Im not taking a position one way or another until the fat lady....er fat person...sings. i dont trust the media and I dont trust the prosecutors. Three things to remember: What we know to be true is different than what we can "prove" in a court. Statements said in public and in front of friends dont carry the same weight as written statements or statements made in front of a prosecutor. You can lie in public all day long, so long as you dont lie to the prosecutors. Most prosecutors wont bring a case if they dont think they can win it. Unlike liberal prosecutors who will bring a case for political purposes or gain.

I hate to admit that Trump’s DoJ and FBI have treated the Obama & Hillary crime syndicates no differently than if Hillary was elected in 2016. Cannot understand why Trump allowed such gross malfeasance, but he has. Then again, how could Trump’s DoJ prosecute Brennan when two of the most senior plotters in the coup, Biden and Rice, may be the Democrat candidates for President & VP in 2020? What’s truly odd is that coup plotter Joe stated this week that he would prosecute Trump if elected. No charges specified, but Biden knows that the FBi can frabricate a felony that his DOJ would falsely prosecute and that an Obama appoi;ted federal judge will gladly serve as co-prosecutor.

Hmmmm, well, we will know soon enough whether the government is so corrupt that short of starting all over in every agency, nothing changes. I just cannot accept that because we have always been the country that is able to beat the bad guys. Hope has kept my spirits up but it is waning at an alarming rate. I just pray that somehow we will find out that there are men of integrity willing to take on the behemoth of corruption that is destroying our beloved country. Time will tell. I feel so bad for the President because he seems to be the only one who really cares about holding criminals accountable.

I like the comments that start with “ what we know is” , we know nothing! We think we are getting straight information from our trusted sources, are we? The rich and powerful have led this country for ever. Get on YouTube and watch Men who built America. Some of these guys we probably thought was great and they were but at the end of the day they were in control. Some of the rich have different ideas and different beliefs but they didn’t getting rich being humble and kind. I can deal with that, it’s capitalism but this violence has to end. Allowing the crap that’s going on in Portland and the murders in Chicago and New York is total bull. The round up MS 13 is a good thing,why not antifa?

So former FBI Swecker, clearly the source for this speculation, knows what Durham is doing? This is a guessing game, folks… Reporters are eager for tidbits. Guessers are happy to provide. How would Swecker know what was going to come out of this. As for “a lawyer familiar with the situation”, they’re all guessing. Trying to read moves … This is intended to rattle us. That’s why they take the trouble to say “The news is sure to disappoint some of President Trump's most ardent supporters who believe Brennan and other top officials in the Obama administration.” It isn’t “news”. Just guessing.

If there are no criminal indictments, then the time and effort are wasted. Even if Durham reports that there is absolute proof of a conspiracy to overthrow the president, the MSM will never report it and the cretins will suffer no political consequences.

Exactly, #36. We don’t know what will happen beyond our speculations. The one thing I do know is that we have an all knowing, all powerful and omnipresent God, who does know everything that is going on and is in control in the affairs of men and nations, including the United States of America. His will is going to be done in spite of every deception and device to make it otherwise. I’m still praying that there are enough people in our government and in our country who are doing the same, and that God will grant our country the mercy we so desperately need, but do not deserve. God was with Gideon and the three hundred who defeated the Midianites by His grace. May He be with PDJT, grant him accurate information and knowledge, and bless him and the few who stand with him with guidance, strength, courage, health and safety to do what must be done for good to prevail and the evil of this “deep state” to be destroyed. To God be the glory! His will be done.

The Democrats’ Cavalcade of Lies 2 replies

The Democrats’ convention is painful to watch — a display of nonstop demagoguery about “saving the planet” from pols who can’t even save America’s cities. Pundits purr that the Democrats offer a “return to normalcy.” But almost everything about their agenda is abnormal — from leaving America’s border open to defunding the police to imposing transgenderism on America’s youth. The Democrats take no interest in the basic requirements of running a country and instead tout what ruins one. Notice how little they talk about the essential functions of government while blathering on about extraneous ones. The party of lockdowns, shutdowns, and national mask mandates

The timing could not have been more inconvenient for Democrats. The day before they eulogized the Black Lives Matter movement and elevated it to the centerpiece of their national convention, a white man was dragged out of his pickup truck by BLM protesters, kicked in the head and beaten almost to death. Even more inconvenient was the fact that the victim, laborer Adam Haner, had been trying to stop these “mostly peaceful” social-justice warriors from attacking a transgender woman at the time.

But what a trick it is!” Broder went on to summarize the rookie senator’s marvelous stump speech in the presidential race. He called the performance “a thing of beauty, a 40-minute oration delivered without notes that is powering his gains in the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3 and the first primary here in New Hampshire five days later. Hillary Clinton has nothing to match it.”

The 77-year-old television personality -- full name Judy Sheindlin -- has slapped Rebel Entertainment Partners (REP) with a lawsuit seeking over $22 million for declaratory relief and alleging unlawful business practices and unjust enrichment, according to Deadline. The filing comes just two weeks after REP filed a $5 million complaint citing breach of contract against Sheindlin and a handful of CBS entities over claims that disgraced former CBS boss, Les Moonves, did some corporate sleight-of-hand to avoid answering to the network’s Board of Directors that resulted in it not getting the money it believes it's owed.

Kamala Harris does not want to be the president of the United States. She wants to be the queen of the post-constitutional remnants of what used to be the United States. On first reading, this might seem like a hysterical and overblown claim, but it’s actually quite easy to support. All one has to do is read the description of the president’s duties in Article II of the Constitution and compare it with anything and everything Harris has ever said she would do if she found herself occupying the post; the two simply do not match up.

I have in mind Ghislaine Maxwell, the apparent sex maniac who is now accused of all manner of horrendous crimes committed with young girls whom she allegedly trained to be sex slaves for the vile Jeffrey Epstein, who is often called a “billionaire.” Incidentally, I would bet he made his millions — somewhat less than billions — by blackmailing his wealthy friends after catching them in the act with the young girls he provided them. It is rumored that he had his various habitats installed with hidden cameras and filming equipment.

T he Democrats’ pundit class has a Joe Biden agenda problem. On the one hand, they are devoted to reassuring centrist voters that Biden is a soothing moderate because of things he did decades ago (say, the 1994 crime bill), because he talked down some of the most ridiculous of the left wing’s policy proposals (notably “Medicare for All”) in the primary, or because he does not speak the language of the woke “defund the police” faction. But at the same time, they are hard at work loudly telling the Bernie/Warren/AOC wing of their party: Don’t worry, Joe won’t stop you from getting what you want.

BUXTON, N.C. — The English colonists who settled the so-called Lost Colony before disappearing from history simply went to live with their native friends — the Croatoans of Hatteras, according to a new book. “They were never lost,” said Scott Dawson, who has researched records and dug up artifacts where the colonists lived with the Indians in the 16th century. “It was made up. The mystery is over.” Dawson has written a book, published in June, that details his research. It is called “The Lost Colony and Hatteras Island,” and echos many of the sentiments he has voiced for years. A team of archaeologists, historians, botanists, geologists and others

Just five kids reciting the Pledge the way I did as a kid and still do today (also without tattoos or rings hanging from my face, by the way).

The Home Shopping Network produces more dynamic programming and is far better at pushing product. Inexplicably, former “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria Bastón served as host. Wearing a white sleeveless sheath dress and a permanent expression of teary concern, Longoria Bastón repeatedly invoked the convention’s theme, “We the People.”

Michelle Obama famously said, “When they go low, we go high.” She should have reminded her husband before he gave his speech for the online Democrat convention. Standing in a room in Philadelphia, with the words “Writing the Constitution” over his right shoulder, Obama gave a speech that almost wholly ignored Biden, whom he’d ostensibly come to praise. Instead, Obama viciously attacked Trump and did a constitutional rewrite that allowed him to cast Trump as a constitutional threat. From the start, Obama was up to his old tricks. Even while he wanted to use the Constitution to challenge Trump, he couldn’t praise it.

Cindy McCain is going to bat for Joe Biden, lending her voice to a video set to air during Tuesday night’s Democratic National Convention programming focused on Biden’s close friendship with her late husband, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona. She’s just the latest Republican to join in the convention, after a number of notable GOP former elected officials — including former Ohio Gov. John Kasich — endorsed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee on Monday night. It’s a continuation of a major theme that Democrats have pushed through the first night of the convention — an effort to broaden the party’s appeal to occasional Republicans and disaffected Trump voters.

In her Wednesday DNC convention speech, Hillary Clinton implied that a “foreign adversary” could sway the U.S. elections, and suggested that an electoral college victory without a corresponding popular vote win would render the victor’s election illegitimate. “Vote for honest elections, so we, not a foreign adversary, choose our president,” Clinton implored viewers. “And don’t forget, Joe and Kamala can win by three million votes and still lose–take it from me. So we need numbers [to be] overwhelming so Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory.” Since losing the 2016 election, Clinton has repeatedly implied that President Trump has colluded with Russia both during and after his election victory.

Sounds like President Trump might be the new Michelin tire man—and that’s not a joke about his weight. Trump called for a boycott of Goodyear tires Tuesday after the company’s workplace tolerance policy banned his trademark #MAGA caps as a display of hate speech on the job. “Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES - They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS,” Trump tweeted.(Snip) The ban, which was presented to employees via slides shown by a plant manager, said #MAGA hats are “not acceptable” attire under a “zero-tolerance” policy toward hateful speech. Goodyear also reportedly told workers not to wear anything supporting particular political candidates.

Portland police declared yet another riot Tuesday night on the 83rd consecutive day of protests after a 200-strong mob of protesters torched the city's famous Multnomah Building. The group had marched to the county seat of government for the first time, smashing windows and sparking a blaze by pushing lit newspapers through the windows. One image shows the protesters had marked a window to the building with the graffiti: 'Aim here.' Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon's biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

In a recent OpEd from The Guardian, author Larry Elliot opines on the frequency of obesity among low-income households in the U.K., and points out that the problem “in the U.S. mirrors that of the U.K.” Elliot goes on to proclaim, that, “there will be less obesity when people can afford to eat better.” The premise is that poor folks are victims of one injustice or another; in Elliot’s case, he claims they are unable to afford healthy food. This notion has been floating around for several years now, particularly as it relates to children, and is one that is frequently parroted by the left in America.

Joe Biden accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination in what might have been the most awkward, unexciting way possible.After a Democratic official announced that Biden had won a majority of the party’s delegates, the virtual event switched over to the high school library where Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, waited. This segment was obviously live because the transition was so clunky that viewers had to watch the two stand there smiling awkwardly while stringed confetti fell from the ceiling.But don’t worry. Democrats made sure to include prerecorded applause from multiple guests, switching back and forth
