From what he said, not anything very big. I won't be holding my breath. I want about 3 dozen CIA, FBI and DoJ folks in prison. Anything less will be a disappointment, and miscarriage of justice.

I don't think it is unreasonable to ask for a status report. Nothing super detailed, but just so we know people are working.

The development will be that additional details are being investigated which may move the report to somewhere in the mid 2040's.

The Phantom Piper blows another dreary tune. There will be prosecutions right after Chiang Kai-Shek takes mainland China. And the Cubs win the World Series. OOPS, that actually happened, but was only improbable, not impossible. It's sad to have practically zero faith in our Departure of Justice. 'proper pace', 'facts of the investigation'.

Yeah hi, my name's Michael Flynn and my pals here with me are George Papadopoulos, Roger Stone and Carter Page. They have mortgages with you too. Yeah, so although the FBI made us penniless and we have all the evidence to prove it, Barr said there'd be "developments" on his investigation against the felons who illegally destroyed our lives, so could you take the fact that he'll have "developments" this Friday as a mortgage payment from all of us? What? No, you won't? We'll all have our homes foreclosed and you can't use the promise of Barr's "developments" as payment? Okay, well thanks for listening.

And so, we have Durham's probe lumbering along (there once was someone named Huber who did nothing at all but collect his salary - lucky him in times like these); and gangstas crashing and burning through Portland and Chicago and wherever; and someone named, Cannon, I believe, who is a SOCCER STAR, who took umbrage when fans who love this country shouted USA, USA, when players took a knee during the National Anthem. Everything and anything goes in the good ol' USA - so that when a five-year-old white boy riding his bike gets shot in the head by his black next-door neighbor because the child crossed his killer's property line, it gets nary a peep from the mainstream media (or from our Hollywood STARS) because it does not fit the narrative of black lives matter. There's something wrong with these pictures. The old used to envy the young, and now it is the other way around.

"...Barr also vowed that there will be “significant developments” in the Durham probe prior to the 2020 election..." And seconds later said that there would be charges if the misdeeds can be proven "beyond a reasonable doubt." Lindsay Graham in questioning Sally Yates asked her if you knew then what you know now would you have signed to renew the FISA court application. She said "no." There you have it. IMHO, everyone's got a 'get out of jail free' card. The reasons: like Hillary: "they broke the law but they didn't mean it - no malicious intent" or, "charges/involvement can not be proven beyond reasonable doubt." I hope no one skates. But, I won't be surprised if they do.

The news was good, and it's a former FBI lawyer, Clinesmith, who pleads guilty to altering a document from the CIA. So, as a 38 year-old he will be disbarred as a result of this felony. What was also stipulated in the filing today was that in August 2016, the FBI was told by the CIA that Carter Page was an operational asset. People outed a CIA operative, regardless. Thus, they KNEW prior to the first FISA warrant in October 2016 they were lying to the Court, and lied 3 more times. But, that the FBI and the CIA also were well versed on the scheme, and ignored everything likely because they were all already in deep, and had to keep pushing the story in hopes something would help them.

President Trump will participate in every day of the Republican National Convention (RNC), an untraditional move for the nominee who is typically highlighted on the final night of festivities, Fox News has learned.But Trump already bucked tradition once before when, four years ago, he made a surprise appearance on the first night of the RNC in Cleveland to introduce his wife, Melania, before her speech to the 2016 delegates. This time around, Trump is slated to give his acceptance speech on the fourth and final night of the convention on Aug. 27 -- "probably" delivered from the White House, he told the New York Post.

Yet there is at present little evidence that "severe side effects" are common in COVID-19 patients who take hydroxychloroquine, with the majority of reported adverse events being relatively mild and only a small fraction of reported effects so far being dangerous and/or fatal.

The 90-year-old Hungarian-American and billionaire philanthropist told La Repubblica that Trump is a “confidence trickster” who unexpectedly won the 2016 U.S. election and was inadvertently working to “undermine democracy from within,” per a translation of the interview on George Soros’ website.

It is no secret but public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way up into California political life by being a very public escort and mattress for California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown. Willie Brown is 30 years older than Harris and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. With Joe Biden’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years. Of almost equally significant concern is what Harris represents to hard-working women across the country who devote years to their careers

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.
