44 Senate Republicans Demand John Durham
Report Be Made Public

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 8/19/2021 4:13:42 PM

The pending report from special counsel John Durham, who was tasked with investigating the origins of the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe, should be released to the public, demanded Senate Republicans in a letter this week. More than 40 GOP senators, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), signed a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland asking that Durham, a former U.S. attorney, should be allowed to continue his investigation and his report released to the public. There have been questions about whether Durham’s investigation will lack funding past the end of the federal government’s fiscal year on Sept. 30.

Didn't Durham say he wasn't doing a report -- but prosecuting cases? Well, he did catch that low-level janitor, lawyer, whatever and gave him a $25 fine.

We've all been wondering what has happened to KamaLOL. Rumor has it that she's been seen at Mike & Millie's Mini-Golf in Guilford, CT - - playing miniature golf with Durham. That's a pretty smart move by KamaLOL. Durham is a would-be Hall Of Fame miniature golfer - - and he can teach her an awful lot about the game.

At this point....what difference does it make. Whatever crimes that were committed will never be prosecuted. It's an exercise in futility. Give it up. Let it go. Move on. How about focusing on your own misdeeds like going along with whatever it is Pignasty and Chuckie want in the fake interest of bipartisanship. Our country is being obliterated and destroyed by the current crew of Satanic demon running things and enough is enough. Don't just do nothing, sit there.

Who cares? It was reported earlier in the week that the vaunted Durham report will only criticize the lowest levels at FBI, and completely isolate the top players. The republicans have to know that, and by beating this dead horse just show they are part of the cover up for the FIB.

The United States Supreme Court on Friday blocked the reinstatement of the “Remain in Mexico” program, intervening just hours before President Joe Biden’s administration would have had to restart the policy. Justice Samuel Alito, a George W. Bush nominee, in a one-page order stayed a ruling that was poised to go into effect on Saturday. That ruling would have forced the Biden administration to restart the Trump era program, formally known as the Migrant Policy Protocols (MPP).

Former U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker said Friday that he has “some grave questions” about President Biden’s “ability to lead our nation as commander-in-chief” after the Taliban seized control of the country following U.S. troop withdrawal. “I’m left with some grave questions in my mind about his ability to lead our nation as commander-in-chief,” Crocker, who led the U.S. Embassy in Kabul from 2002 to 2003, then again from 2011 to 2012, told The Spokesman-Review. “To have read this so wrong – or, even worse, to have understood what was likely to happen and not care,” he added.

The Taliban face a frontal challenge in cementing control of Afghanistan: Money. Despite their dominant military blitz over the past week, the Taliban lack access to billions of dollars from their central bank and the International Monetary Fund that would keep the country running during a turbulent shakeup. Those funds are largely controlled by the U.S. and international institutions, a possible leverage point as tense evacuations proceed from the airport in the capital of Kabul.

Minutes after President Biden on Friday said the mission to destroy Al Qaeda in Afghanistan was a success and that he knew of no circumstances where Americans had been unable to reach Kabul airport, he was flatly contradicted by the Pentagon. Al Qaeda remains present in Afghanistan, said Department of Defense spokesman John Kirby during a briefing, and yes, he was aware of reports of Americans being beaten by the Taliban as they tried to reach safety. The contradiction will raise further doubt about whether Biden is in control of the White House messaging operation, let alone the chaotic effort to bring Americans home.

DETROIT – General Motors on Friday said it is expanding its recent recall of Chevrolet Bolt EVs to newer models of the electric car due to potential fire risks. The recall expansion is expected to cost the automaker an additional $1 billion, bringing the recall’s total to $1.8 billion to replace potentially defective battery modules in the vehicles. About 73,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada are being added to the recall from the 2019-2022 model years, including a recently launched larger version of the car called the Bolt EUV. The former recall involved about 69,000 of the cars globally, including nearly 51,000 in the U.S.

During the presidential campaign, the Biden administration introduced a new word into the lexicon: a “lid.” His campaign has called a lid countless times without explanation, meaning it was cutting off all media appearances for that day. Joe Biden went on vacation to Camp David just before Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and gave no public remarks on the matter until more than 24 hours after the fall of Kabul. That was a speech Biden delivered from the White House Monday, after which he took no questions from the media. He went silent again, then delivered another speech on Wednesday, this time on COVID.

In the wake of the Afghanistan debacle, demands have arisen in Congress for President Biden to resign or to be removed via the 25th Amendment. Elements of the formerly pro-Biden media have joined in the condemnation. Many silent Democrat office holders likely want Biden out, as they fear the systemic incompetence of his administration will bring them down come 2022. But Joe can not resign or be fired. The Democrat high command will not let either happen (snip) As soon as Kamala Harris takes the presidential oath, the vice-presidency is left vacant.
