There are two critical components to understand why John Durham is the clean-up and cover-up operation as appointed by former two-time Attorney General William Barr and Barr has come back full circle to cinch it up on the eve of Michael Sussmann’s forthcoming verdict: 1-Barr was situated at Kirkland & Ellis in between his two stints as AG at the time the firm advised Staple Street Capital on its acquisition of Dominion voting, which then made its way to China via UBS and HSBC Toronto in time for the 2020 election [it included the 18 proprietary patents needed to hack Dominion machines and determine election outcomes] and 2-The same general DOJ/FBI leadership and personnel being investigated by Durham are the same ones that ran the fraudulent Robert Mueller Special Counsel.
Durham can’t undo one without undoing the other ergo neither will be undone. It’s why my words of caution pertaining to Durham date back to at least 01 Jan 20 and have been reiterated ad nauseam since.
This is the sixth article in this series and the others should be consumed for the proper contextual backdrop and evidence to this one. They’re linked at the bottom.
It’s imperative to remember that Barr wrote the scope memo establishing Durham’s authority. If unfamiliar with it and/its critical importance isn’t fully understood, this article, which contains the memo, is required reading: An Evidenced Reminder to Temper Expectations About Durham – He’s the Clean-up and Cover-up Operation.
As I’ve routinely evidenced, DOJ and FBI officials have a firewall between themselves and Durham; including a carve-out that is being made of former FBI General Counsel Jim Baker’s soft landing. Durham’s focus is essentially for only private citizens outside of the federal apparatus and it’s why the only two indictments thus fare are for Sussmann and Igor Danchenko. Remember, too, that the indictments only charge the process crimes of lying to the FBI, which are indicative of cover-up operations.
I also said this of Hillary Clinton,“Perhaps Durham will bend back on Clinton but she’s now irrelevant and disposable and so any such development would become nothing more than fat to chew-on for the partisans assuming that eventually happens. Moreover, it would be irrelevant given that Clinton has never been elected for anything other than Senator; she’s only been a failed candidate beyond her appointment as Secretary of State.”
Recall the premise I outlined in the third article in the series when I said this, “C is for cover-up. C is for clean-up. C is for Clinton. Clinton duped ’em all! That’s the flimsy and fraudulent but now clear strategy from the Durham Special Counsel prosecution of Michael Sussmann in framing the exit for this dog and pony show trial with a predetermined and scripted ending. […] “Clinton duped ’em all!” That’s what is forthcoming from Durham and it precludes the staking of any prominent heads as long contended. Sussmann is on trial for the process crime of a single count of lying to the FBI and process crimes are the historical mechanisms of cover-up and clean-up. Durham was doomed from the start and never intended to get out of the blocks. For anyone considering that any future prosecution of Hillary Clinton and her campaign is somehow a victory, I urge caution and pragmatism there, too.” […] “A Clinton prosecution would amount to no more than a constructed effort to compartmentalize the extreme criminal culpability of a wide swath of individuals and entities into an expendable container while protecting the DOJ and FBI officials caught-up in the Durham/Mueller overlay outlined above.””
In evidence of the established Moonshine positions, consider recent remarks from Barr as sourced from Zero Hedge,
“I thought we were heading into a constitutional crisis. I think whatever you think of Trump, the fact is that the whole Russiagate thing was a grave injustice. It appears to be a dirty political trick that was used first to hobble him and then potentially to drive him from office… I believe it is seditious.”
“It was a gross injustice, and it hurt the United States in many ways, including what we’re seeing in Ukraine these days. It distorted our foreign policy, and so forth.”William Barr
Notably and according to reporting, Barr continued by warning that those charges would be difficult to prove in court.
Here’s a question predicated on the fact that Barr wrote the scope memo – Is is it plausible and likely that Barr knew that those charges would be difficult to prove in court respective to the authority he granted to Durham in the scope memo and did he write that memo to ensure self-preservation and institutional preservation?
Rhetorical question. It’s ‘yes’ across the board.
Barr continued and noting that the scope memo as it was written gave the Biden Administration and Merrick Garland’s DOJ firm confirmation that they need not worry about severe exposure to criminal culpability,
“I was highly confident he would remain in office and they wouldn’t touch him. The Biden administration had no real interest in protecting either Hillary Clinton or Comey.”
“And at the end of the day, for them to lose the capital and appear to be covering something up that would then never get resolved, I didn’t think was in their interest.”
“If you don’t have the threat of a grand jury, no one will come in and talk to you. You’ll say, the usual thing is, ‘Please come in for a voluntary interview,’ he said. “And people come in because they know if they don’t, they’re subpoenaed.”
“But if there is no grand jury, they say, ‘No, I’m not coming in,’ and there’s nothing you can do.“William Barr
Respective to OIG Inspector for the DOJ Michael Horowitz, Barr said, “His hands were very much tied as to how far he could push things and how much pressure he could bring on people through most of 2020.”
ZH’s reporting says the full Barr interview will be released tomorrow.
So what do Barr’s words tell us? They tell us that as I’ve been saying this entire time that the specific language of the scope memo he offered needs to be strictly interpreted and as such and in combination with the two major premises that introduced this article, Durham is the clean-up and the cover-up.
Maybe Sussmann gets convicted. Perhaps he doesn’t. Maybe the expendable Clinton gets sacrificed. Perhaps she doesn’t. None of that matters because the firewall is in place, the DOJ and FBI are insulated and Barr just confirmed that.
Those who don’t understand this, don’t understand Durham, Barr, Barr’s full circle back and what is actually occurring right now.
