Looks like Barr Obstructed Justice

John Durham's secret criminal investigation reportedly involved Trump, not Clinton or the FBI

The Week, January 27, 2023


When Durham and Barr made a very unusual trip to Italy in September 2019, "Italian officials — while denying any role in setting off the Russia investigation — unexpectedly offered a potentially explosive tip linking Mr. Trump to certain suspected financial crimes," the Times reports. Barr and Durham "decided that the tip was too serious and credible to ignore," but instead of assigning it to another prosecutor, Barr had Durham quietly investigate the matter, "giving him criminal prosecution powers for the first time."

"Durham never filed charges, and it remains unclear what level of an investigation it was, what steps he took, what he learned, and whether anyone at the White House ever found out," the Times adds. This "extraordinary fact" that Durham opened a criminal investigation of Trump "has remained secret," though "a garbled echo became public" when the Times, in October 2019, reported that Durham's review had become a criminal inquiry, presumably (but erroneously) because "Durham had found evidence of potential crimes by officials involved in the Russia inquiry."

Barr, "who weighed in publicly about the Durham inquiry at regular intervals in ways that advanced a pro-Trump narrative, chose in this instance not to clarify what was really happening," the Times notes.



A hearty welcome to DU, GGoss! Outstanding OP and thread!

Personally, I think Barr will claim he covered up for Trump in order to keep “Anti-Putin” national security operations secret, meaning don’t rock the boat wherein the rich get richer and the rest of humanity can drop dead.

Trump Blasts Charles McGonigal After Arrest: 'Rot In Hell'

Trump Blasts Charles McGonigal After Arrest: 'Rot In Hell'

Newsweek, 1/24/23

Donald Trump reacted with glee after a former FBI official who was involved in the investigation into the alleged ties between the former president's 2016 campaign team and Russia was arrested.

Charles McGonigal, 54, the former head of counterintelligence for the FBI's New York office, is accused of secretly working for a U.S.-sanctioned Russian oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, as well as conspiring to commit money laundering.

Prosecutors said that McGonigal is alleged to have tried to help Deripaska get off the sanctions list after leaving the FBI in 2018. He is also alleged to have taken money off the Russian billionaire in 2019 in order to investigate a rival oligarch.


In a post on Truth Social after the Department of Justice announced the charges, Trump said: "The FBI guy after me for the Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX, long before my Election as President, was just arrested for taking money from Russia, Russia, Russia. May he Rot In Hell!"



Kick to The Ancient Horror in the pants.

And its Agents o’ Chaos.

Going by the situation, the Democratic Party can make a good case for a nationwide sweep in ‘24.

This FBI guy cleared Putin-Trump connection.

He was first to let the traitor Trump off the hook in 2016.

The FBI was then run under James Comey, who Trump fired “at will” in 2017.

Trump and Wray let McGonigal stay at FBI until 2018, when he retired or got canned.

Anyone hear from Frank Figliuzzi?

Having a screw loose doesn't excuse the treason.

And WHY are there so many in the House, Kev?

They should be locked up, if not standing in the unemployment line (Thanks, Santos!).

Doesn’t let Turtle and his turd band in the Senate off the hook, neither.

All the traitors need to be held to account. Otherwise, they’ll try, try, try again.

Billionaires are collectively adding $2.7 billion to their fortunes daily. So. Trickle down.

Billionaires are collectively adding $2.7 billion to their fortunes daily — and their growing share of wealth shows trickle-down doesn't work

* A new report from Oxfam looks at how much wealth billionaires have accumulated.

* The report finds billionaires are collectively adding $2.7 billion to their fortunes daily, as inflation eats up workers' wages.

* As top tax rates fell, billionaire wealth grew — and Oxfam says wealth taxes are one solution.

The rich are getting richer, and it's an ever-growing problem as everyone else sees their wages eaten up by rising inflation.

A new report from Oxfam, called "Survival of the richest: How we must tax the super-rich now to fight inequality," finds that the richest 1% are increasingly capturing more and more wealth — snatching up two-thirds of all new wealth in the world since 2020.

"That's astonishing, right? Because it's the richest 1% grabbing twice as much money as the rest of humanity, the 99% of us, put together," Nabil Ahmed, Oxfam America's director of economic justice, told Insider.


The report finds that billionaires' fortunes are collectively growing by $2.7 billion daily, "even as inflation outpaces the wages of at least 1.7 billion workers, more than the population of India."

That's based on the difference between billionaires' wealth from March 18, 2020, adjusted for inflation, and November 30, 2022. Oxfam's analysis showed that there was a $2.6 trillion increase in this wealth during this time.



Richest times in human history, rot.

Who said anything about "an advanced space ship"? You did.

I said, I don’t know what UFOs are.

BTW: My reply to your OP was to show you there are high quality photos available for study.

Here’s an important UFO report from 2014, with video:

Chilean Navy helicopter pilot shoots video of UFO


On Nov. 11, 2014, a Navy captain and technician were on a routine daytime patrol mission flying north along the Chilean coast, west of Santiago, and filmed an unidentified flying object.

Rex Heflin took outstanding photos of a UFO in 1965.

An employee of Orange County, California, Mr. Heflin took a series of four UFO images with his office Polaroid while checking road signs that were being blocked by vegetation in 1965. Here's his first photo:

Note how the dust on the ground directly underneath the object stands straight up. That is clear evidence for physical nature of UFO phenomenon.

The brilliant and fearless Anne Druffel studied the pictures and reported:


Computer enhancement also confirmed that the UFO in Heflin’s photo is a large object, approximately 20 feet in diameter and more than 100 feet from the camera, as first estimated by Heflin. Kelson also independently detected an unusual blurring effect around the craft which he stated was not due to motion, camera focus, or to the gaussian effect. This correlates with Dr. Nathan’s finding 30 years prior of an unexplained fuzziness in the craft image.

Our reanalysis of the Heflin UFO photos in 2000 has led to the following conclusions:

1. The photos are totally consistent with Heflin’s written and verbal testimony regarding the sighting.
2. The photos depict a solid unidentified craft which is moving through the air, leaving a trail.
3. William Spaulding’s hoax conclusion in the mid-1970s was derived from faulty data.
4. The smoke-ring photo is linked by computer-enhancement data to the other three, by cloud and trail data which were previously unavailable.

There is evidence that for 28 years, three of the original four photos were in the hands of unknown persons who took good care of them while possibly accessing data from them. Why they were returned to Heflin under totally inexplicable circumstances remains an unsolved mystery.

The UFO field’s study of Rex Heflin’s incomparable photos continues, and will continue in years to come. Ongoing studies into more technical aspects are being conducted presently by Dr. Kelson, and there is more evidence emerging that the unexplained blur around the object might possibly be evidence of ionization, long speculated by many researchers and scientists in the field to be involved in UFO propulsion.

There’s a fourth pic, which was taken as the thing departed, that showed a smoke ring.

Mr. Heflin was in the right place at the right time, with his camera at the ready, because photographing traffic accidents and roadway hazards were part of his job. Were it me that day in his stead, I likely would not get a single photo. Heck, I’d probably still be staring with my jaw on my chest.

What UFOs are, I don’t know. I do know the subject deserves scientific study. For those who wonder, “Why bother?” The answer is we might learn something. For some reason, that thought seems to frighten many people.

Mondrian was a genius.

I enjoy some of his works more than others. It all merits preservation, however, as there will never be another Mondrian.
