Will Durham Investigation Tank Impeachment Efforts?


Authored by Jeff Charles via LibertyNation.com,

If the recent moves by prosecutor John Durham are any indication, some important people have cause to be worried. After the investigation into the origin of the Russia probe became a criminal matter, many have speculated as to who might be in Durham’s crosshairs.

Sources familiar with Durham’s investigation recently told Fox News the prosecutor likely has evidence that crimes were committed. So who is guilty of wrongdoing, and how will the progressive left, who championed the failed Russia collusion narrative, react?

Indictments On The Horizon?

John Durham

Durham recently elevated his investigation to criminal status, which broadens the powers of the authorities looking into the matter. It means he can subpoena witnesses, call a grand jury, and take other actions. Fox News’ source indicated that the prosecutor might know already who engaged in illegal activities.

“You do not impanel a grand jury at this point unless you are going to indict,” the source said. “Durham is at a point where he knows he has crimes and now the question is how many people were involved and they have a pretty good idea of that group of people and what the charges can be and whether or not they can get some cooperators.”

If the source is correct, it means Durham possesses much of the information he needs to issue indictments. Perhaps elevating the investigation gets him closer to uncovering the rest of the crimes. If this is true, Durham’s probe is likely to send the progressive left into a tizzy; they did not expect to be on the receiving end of this strategy. So how will the Democrats and their close allies in the corporate press react if the prosecutor files indictments and makes arrests? It seems they have already given us a clue.

How Will The Left React?

The Democrats have already placed Durham in their sights, and the leaders are rushing to condemn Attorney General William Barr for daring to investigate government officials for potential wrongdoing. With no sense of irony, they accuse the Justice Department of conducting a politically motivated investigation to harm Trump’s political opponents. This is what a lack of self-awareness looks like, folks.

William Barr

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) issued a joint statement, lashing out at the attorney general. “The Department of Justice under AG Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,” they whined. “If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.”

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) claimed that Durham’s investigation is not warranted. He stated that the Senate Intelligence Committee “is wrapping up a three-year bipartisan investigation, and we’ve found nothing remotely justifying this.”

Apparently, the Democrats have embraced the “good for me but not for thee” policy over the past three years when it comes to investigations.

What About Impeachment?

In the midst of an attempt to impeach President Donald Trump, the arrests of government officials who began an obvious politically motivated investigation is the last thing the Democrats want. While they use the president’s phone call with Ukraine as a pretext to conduct yet another probe, it might not be a good look if Durham indicts other officials for doing the same.

Fox News also reported that the prosecutor is “very interested” in questioning former CIA Director John Brennan and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper. In fact, another source told Fox that Brennan was informed by his attorney that Durham might reach out to him. FBI agent Peter Strzok – a key member of the team investigating the Trump campaign – also might be a focus of the continuing investigation. He has been the subject of scrutiny since messages between himself and former FBI attorney Lisa Page revealed a distinct anti-Trump bias.

It is no secret that the Democrats have been planning to impeach Trump since five minutes after he won the election in 2016. The false Russia collusion narrative was supposed to be the kill shot to the president’s time in office. But special counsel Robert Mueller’s report revealed that their efforts were based on utter falsehoods. Now, the left has replaced Russia with Ukraine, hoping to pound a final nail in the coffin. It is clear to anyone following politics that it is out to get Trump by any means necessary.

However, if Durham’s investigation results in indictments of prominent individuals who targeted the president during the 2016 campaign season, it might be yet another demonstration that Democrats are motivated by politics when it comes to removing Trump, not a sense of duty or altruism. It is one thing to lead an impeachment effort based on “Orange Man Bad;” it is quite another if the DOJ exposes left-leaning government officials who used illegal means to damage the president.

Support for impeachment is still high, but it is sinking. As time goes on, with no new compelling evidence against Trump, it will continue to decline. If Durham arrests political actors who worked against the Trump administration, the American public will see through the effort to unseat the president through the impeachment process. Then the Democrats will not have the support they need to push it through. Either way, it looks like the Democrats’ only hope for victory lies with the 2020 election, not the impeachment process.

  1. If the democrats can dream up charges against our president then they can be investigated for real crimes that they committed. The reason they are against these investigations is they may be on the list. They should have been investigated a long time ago.

  2. The Durham investigation is a layup.The deep state is in disarray.The only people to blame for this is themselves.How do these people in the mirror ?What is sad is the liberals of America are just as blind with rage as the dems.Lock them up from Obama down.This is 10x worse than Watergate.Their can be close to 10 people at the highest level of government facing criminal charges.I hope that after they get arrested the country can heal, simply because we look like jackasses all over the world.Don ‘t blame Trump for that look in mirror lefties.

  3. And we wonder why Americans, and minorities especially hate the legal system. If they can do this to a President whether Trump or Bill CLinton it leaves one to ponder how many Americans have been ruined by a Congress with less American support or Apporval than the dog catcher that took the family pet because he has lost his collar. This is not a stretch ask most minorites and hell most people in general, they have been subject of witch hunts and it proves if the got money you get off like the Dems will here.

    • Charles, you nailed it. I work in the legal system and my job is getting innocent Americans off when set up by crooked cops, and there are far more of them than good ones. Especially in the South (I”m not from here so it was a shock.). They arrrest and set up white people, too. It doesnt matter. Conservatives seem to be fairly unaware of the part of America where Justices does not exist, or comes with a hefty price tag most cant afford.

      I try to explain to them, that this can happen to you. They think it can’t. The day the gun grabbers and Leftists take over, we’re doomed.

  4. Maybe just maybe there will be an honest legitimate INVESTIGATION this time of Hillary’s use of a private server while Secy of State including her cover up and failure to cooperate. Not sure if the waivers from prosecution (cannot remember the term) that Comey handed out like lollipops to her underlings and associates can be revoked. Would help arrive at the truth. Could be offered more strategically this time.

    • In my uneducated opinion, I think Schiff assumed Trump must have done something wrong or stupid during the Ukraine call and would never release the transcript. Bad call dumbass. Now this will backfire, this was an attempt to divert attention to real crimes as yet unindicted. Epstein, Hillary, Clinton foundation, false statements made to federal judges to initiate a Fisa warrant.
      I hope it’s on now. Of course even if Jesus was calling for honest investigations into these people he would be called a political conservative hack. Please let the games begin. If Trump has done some vile crap then we conservatives would hold him accountable and that’s fine because this ship holds many more Democrat rats that need to go down. Bring it on Democrats, I hope your filthy corrupt escapades will finally see some light.

  5. So the Democrats say that Durham investigating them is politically motivated ??? What do they think they are doing to our President ??? Are they that ignorant ??

  6. Justice for president Trump and the American people seems like a long time coming, but remember, president trump is laying the ground work by putting constitutional judges on the federal courts. No sense prosecuting just to have liberal judges dismiss the case or impose nothing sentences. Justice is coming, we just need to be patient.

  7. Shfity Schiff is such a waste of American people’s time and money. He’s a disgrace to his country, a traitor and a co-conspirator of a treasonous coup. Hopefully he’ll get the punishment he so heartily deserves. If not in this life, surely in the next! God delivers.

  8. What is up with these peop[le?, I was an Investigator for many years (and still am) If I had taken this long in reaching conclusions and finishing off the investigations with either prosecution or closure, I would have been drummed out unceremoniously by now. We urgently need some “nuremberg” style trials of all these creeps.
    Get it DOPNE, or tell the People why!

    • WORD….it’s like they are waiting too see what happens with this b.s. phone call. Or its like I have always said….democraps never pay….anyone hear their blaming Reps. that EC died cause they exposed Bmore

  9. Ignore that man behind the curtain. Just look at the wizard on the screen & click your ssd’s silver slippers together 3x while repeating “there’s no place like home” ’til you get it.
    Remember 9/11. We have been st war since then & really since 25Dec1913..


  11. THIS IS EXACTLY HOW TRUE SOCIOPATHS SOUND…. ACCUSATORY WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO APPLY WRONG DOING TO THEMSELVES. EVEN IF INDICTED, PELOSI, NADLER AND SCHIFF STILL WOULD BE TOTALLY CLUELESS. HOW FRIGHTENING THAT WE AMERICANS HAVE THEM WORKING IN SUCH POWERFUL POSITIONS…. WE NEED TO BOOT THEM OUT IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THEY FURTHER DESTROY OUR DEMOCRATIC PROCESS!!! (RE: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) issued a joint statement, lashing out at the attorney general. “The Department of Justice under AG Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,” they whined.)

  12. The thing that bothers me the most is that Durham is investigating the basis for the Trump-Russia collusion fiasco and the players who initiated it and carried it out. This pretty much ignores the fact that the same deep state didn’t stop when the Mueller team found no evidence of wrongdoing in the Russian collusion case-they just jumped to impeachment attempt 2.0 and right to the Ukrainian quid pro quo crap. The thing is, the players seem to be the same as the original ones, with a few extra thrown in, as needed. The “whistleblower in the Ukraine case traveled to Ukraine with Clinton crony Chalupa to ask the Ukrainians to dig dirt on Trump before the 2016 election. Fiona Hill, one of the people who gave damning testimony in the Ukraine case is fast friends with Christopher Steele, of Steels dossier fame. The whistleblower, Ciaramella, was also very good friends with two of Adam Schiff’s aides and CIA Director Brennan. Both Schiff and Hill are also friends with Glenn Simpson, the head of the Fusion GPS company, who paid Steele to develop dirt on Trump using Clinton and DNC money (the result was the Steele dossier). Just one big happy, corrupt, family.

    • Mueller wasn’t going to find anything wrong. He went from Bush to Obama’s FBI. Senate even approved the extra 2 years for him to do this. Same deep state, Rinos and Dems and both have NO allegiance to this Great Nation. All have made personal fortunes for themselves or their family members off OUR tax dollars. Plus their quid pro quo of “open borders” has been a national security issue, with innocent American citizens dying. Just like their “war games” as well. Innocent military, but like Hilary says “what difference does it make now?”


  13. Hopefully the report will include a bunch of the non-elected deep state that no one ever sees, who have been working feverishly against Trump since he was elected.
    I am convinced the elected demons we see every night will be prosecuted or damaged beyond future electability. Especially Schiff and Nadler. I hope Pelosi will get scorched too. She took a boatload of cash from the Ukrainians. So many demons involved. It’s mind-numbing. So much treachery and sedition. None of them should get less than 20 years.
    Schiff/Nadler statement proves the guilty dog always barks first . . .

  14. I wish that the speed of Durham’s investigation will accelerate ; but I also want the charges to “stick” after they are presented, and not have a half-done job from which people are acquitted and never again possible to pursue, because of double jeopardy laws. If charges are dropped prior to prosecution, they can later be re-introduced. But a verdict can not be upgraded to guilty from it’s previous ruling of acquittal or “not guilty.” We wish for the convictions of all guilty parties ; but often the best practicality is to give immunity to a small number of people in exchange for their testimony to convict the more egregious felons. That is, in the judicial systems of THIS life, such is frequently a necessity. However, GOD ALMIGHTY will convict people and impose eternal penalties at a much higher rate !
