While the Democrats continue to toil away with their “formal impeachment inquiry”, another, ever-more damning investigation is taking place right alongside.
Over at the Department of Justice, a frantic probe has been undertaken in order to understand exactly how and why the Obama administration was able to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign – an unethical bit of political espionage that could very well have instigated the entire “RussiaGate” investigation itself.
At the heart of the matter is the Steele Dossier: An alleged packet of tabloid-esque assertions regarding Donald Trump’s preference for the bodily functions of Muscovite prostitutes and how Vladimir Putin is using this information to blackmail Trump.
It sounds unbelievable because it is unbelievable.
Now, the Department of Justice is attempting to get to the bottom of why this was allowed to occur, and who was responsible for such an immoral leap in litigious logic.
Attorney General Bill Barr believes that trouble lies ahead for those involved.
Attorney General William Barr on Monday discussed John Durham probe into the origins of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia in 2016 in a sit-down interview with Fox News.
Barr told Fox News Durham is “making great progress” in his investigation and shared he is “confident” Durham is “going to get to the bottom of things.”
“We’ll let the chips fall where they may,” Barr outlined. “I think they all know John Durham’s reputation and we’ll just see how it turns out.”
The probe is conveniently timed, as the Democratic push for impeachment seems destined to turn official on Thursday with a House vote.
Barr and Durham have both indicated that the “SpyGate” investigation is also entering a significant escalation this week.
