Nothing says one is all over the target than when the liberal establishment media, on behalf of Democrats and the deep state holdovers in the intelligence community, start attacking. The harder they attack, the more one knows they are indeed, on the right track.
After Robert Mueller finished his special counsel investigation into possible Russia collusion, and determined their was no conspiring, nor cooperation on the part of any Trump campaign member, or any American, with Russia, Attorney General Bill Barr informed Congress that the DOJ would turn their eyes to investigating the origins of the Russia probe, by investigating the actions of U.S. intelligence community members which led to the original Russia probe.
Democrats in Congress squawked a bit, the media claimed Barr was investigating a "conspiracy theory," and conservatives impatiently waited to see where the investigation would lead, becoming frustrated when no news was "leaked" from the office of U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was assigned by AG Barr to head up the investigation.
The deep state holdovers however, members of the intelligence community that kept their heads down and their mouths shut while Mueller was investigating, are aware, or informed by others, who was being questioned and where the Barr/Durham investigation was leading.
Hence the Democrat freakout when President Trump spoke to the Ukrainian President and asked him to cooperate with the investigation into the origins, including the part that the company Crowdstrike played, since the U.S. Intel agencies under Obama used their third party investigative findings exclusively to determine Russia hacked the DNC servers.
THE REAL REASON DEMOCRATS ARE RUSHING FOR IMPEACHMENT
While no leaks have come from John Durham's office or team, it appears that AG Barr and U.S. Attorney Durham are all over the correct target because those deep state holdovers still in the intel community went straight to both the Washington Post and the New York Times, where these types of snakes usually go to try to shape the narrative before damaging information gets revealed, and to attack the "investigation" itself.
Not only has Ukraine been asked to share intel, but Australia has also and agreed to offer their assistance to get to the bottom of this particular pit of vipers, as the NYT reports using anonymous sources. We also see the Italians have also been asked to assist in determining what foreign intelligence agencies were used by the Obama administration to begin the spying campaign on the Trump campaign, as per the Washington Post.
Australia: The reason Australia's cooperation is important in the bigger picture is explained by Charles Cooke at National Review:
There’s no suggestion of a quid pro quo here. And there is nothing odd about Trump’s asking these questions of Australia given that Australia contributed information into the Five Eyes system that, eventually, informed the Mueller investigation and had serious effects on American politics.
Five Eyes is "A group of nations has joined with the United States to form what is known as the Five Eyes, also known simply as FVEY. This is an intelligence cooperative in the areas of military intelligence, human intelligence, and signals intelligence." (Source)
Remember it was an Australian diplomat, Alexander Downer, that was first sent to make contact with former Trump Campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, which the New York Times claimed was "How the Russia Inquiry Began," in December 2017.
John Solomon over at The Hill, in March 2018, offered a little more about Downer, showing that he "previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show."
Downer then went to a Australian intelligence agency, who then provided information to the FBI, which began the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump Campaign code-named 'Crossfire Hurricane', per American Greatness, who highlights Papadopoulos' excitement that the Barr/Durham investigation was following the right trail.
Papadopoulos continued "First, I testified against both Downer and Misfud a year ago to help launch Durham’s investigation. Now, the fruit of that accurate testimony is exposing the global nature of the attempt to set up the 2016 campaign and interfere in the democratic process. Was my patriotic duty!"
Barr has already made overtures to British intelligence officials, and last week the attorney general traveled to Italy, where he and Durham met senior Italian government officials and Barr asked the Italians to assist Durham, according to one person familiar with the matter. It was not Barr’s first trip to Italy to meet intelligence officials, the person said. The Trump administration has made similar requests of Australia, these people said.
Papadopoulos' reference to Misfud, is Joseph Misfud, who, in 2016, became involved with Papadopoulos and was accused of being a link between the Trump campaign and Russia, but Misfud was later revealed to be a Western intelligence asset.
In June, Washington Post revealed that Joseph Misfud was found by an Italian reporter at a university in Rome, where he was serving as a visiting professor, before he once again disappeared.
The Last Refuge provides more detail about Misfud, along with the video below:
According to an interview on August 18th, John Solomon reported the lawyer for Joseph Mifsud admitted his client was a western intelligence asset who was part of a CIA intelligence “operation” against candidate Donald Trump in March 2016.
Not only was the attorney admitting Mifsud was a western asset used by the CIA against Trump, but the lawyer also told Solomon about an audio-taped deposition that Joseph Mifsud gave prior to going into hiding after Trump won the 2016 Presidential election.
Barr and Durham are apparently all over the target, going to the very heart, the beginning of the operation to 1) Prevent Donald Trump from winning the 2016 election, and; 2) When they failed to prevent his win, to create an investigation in an attempted coup to remove a duly elected President.
Seeing these "leaks" from unnamed sources tells us that the media, on behalf of their puppet masters in the Intel community, and Democrat politicians, are attempting to shape the narrative before Barr and Durham expose the entire deep state conspiracy against Trump.
First, the context… On Thursday night Carl Bernstein said: William Barr is preparing to deliver “evidence of a deep state conspiracy.” Bernstein’s statement followed on the heels of Chairman Jerry Nadler proclaiming: “The President dragged the Attorney General into this mess,” [Nadler wrote on Twitter after the transcript was released]. “At a minimum, AG Barr must recuse himself until we get to the bottom of this matter.”
Then on Friday during an interview on MSNBC Morning Joe, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said AG William Barr had “gone rogue” in his efforts to protect President Trump.
Amid the newly visible sense of urgency toward a Trump impeachment effort by all of the aforementioned soft-coup participants (and more), it certainly does seem like AG Bill Barr is at the forefront of their current concern.....
Barr hasn't "gone rogue."
He is doing the job he said he was going to do and the establishment media and Democrats are freaking out because he is on the right trail, hence the immediate push for impeachment by House Democrats, which Pelosi announced before she had even read the declassified transcript of the call between President Trump and the Ukrainian President, which is her and Democrats sole reason given for the "impeachment inquiry."
Despite the frustration and impatience of conservatives over the amount of time it is taking to get information on the Barr/Durham investigation, most everyone knew that realistically, their findings would not be revealed until after the long-awaited DOJ Inspector General's report concerning possible FISA abuses perpetuated by U.S. Intelligence agency leaders on the FISA court.
That these leaks are not coming from the Durham team, and are coming out on top of each other, all anonymously sourced, is a pattern we saw throughout the whole Russia collusion sham investigation, showing attempts by the deep state holdovers to shape the narrative, despite the fact that the media and Democrats three-year narrative was blown to smithereens once the Mueller report was made public.
The level of panic is indicative that Barr and Durham are not only on the right trail, but are following every single breadcrumb, much to the despair of the liberal media and the political operatives in the Democrat party.
I'll give former Chief Strategist for President Trump, Steve Bannon, the last word here: "If they vote to impeach him, I think when all the evidence is out there, they will have signed their political death warrants."
