While Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been doing everything in his power to undermine the investigation of the origins of the Russia probe, Attorney General William Barr is touting the integrity of U.S. Attorney John Durham and his now-criminal inquiry.
Barr struck and shattered Schiff’s narrative that this is a partisan investigation in an interview Monday, noting that two Democrat attorneys general have entrusted federal prosecutor John Durham with investigations before, according to National Review.
Dems in Panic Mode
When Barr announced the Durham investigation was now a criminal matter, it caused a wave of panic throughout the Democratic Party.
Schiff immediately went on the circuit to tell anyone who would listen that he would not accept the outcome of this investigation because it is nothing more than the Justice Department being weaponized by Trump.
The funny thing about Schiff’s explanation, though, is that he more or less made Trump’s argument for him on how politicians should not act after an election.
Everything Schiff said to discredit Durham’s investigation actually holds true — only, it holds true for the impeachment inquiry.
Going by the Book
Before Durham was put on this investigation, he was widely respected and feared. He had a reputation for putting politics aside and getting to the bottom of any case, no matter where it led him.
“He’s a 35-year veteran of the department, great reputation for non-partisanship. He was selected by two Democratic attorney generals to do sensitive investigations for them,” Barr said of the U.S. attorney.
Barr went on: “He’s a by-the-book kind of guy. He’s thorough and fair, and I’m confident he’s going to get to the bottom of things.”
Even with that reputation, though, Democrats are doing everything in their power to spread a bogus narrative about it. House Judiciary Democrats even sent a letter to Barr demanding he recuses himself from anything related to the impeachment due to his relationship with the President.
The “other” shoe is about to drop on Democrats and you can smell fear in D.C., make no mistake about that.
Schiff can do all the press conferences he wants, but that is not going stop the FBI raids on key players in the Russian collusion investigation that now seems imminent.
