WASHINGTON—Attorney General William Barr has told top Republicans that the results of a wide-ranging inquiry into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 Russia investigation won’t be made public before the election, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and his allies in Congress and his campaign had hoped the findings would be released before Nov. 3, potentially shedding new light on the underpinnings of the investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Mr. Trump has been calling for the prosecution of his political rivals to result from the probe. Told by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh that Mr. Barr had informed lawmakers a report by election day was unlikely, Mr. Trump said, “If that’s the case I am very disappointed.

“I think it’s a terrible thing, and I’ll say it to his face,” he said of Mr. Barr on the radio show Friday. “That’s a disgrace. I think it’s a disgrace. It’s an embarrassment.”

Mr. Barr had been pressing Connecticut U.S. attorney John Durham to produce at least a partial report before Nov. 3, creating friction with some members of Mr. Durham’s team who said they needed more time to complete their work, people familiar with the matter said.

Nora Dannehy, a longtime associate of Mr. Durham, left the Justice Department because of the way Mr. Barr managed the probe, decisions to declassify certain documents, and disagreements over how they would present conclusions in a report, according to the people familiar with the matter.

Because it might demonstrate that the entirety of the Obama administration was crooked, including the VP.  Or it might show that the Barr/Durham effort was as much of a white wash as we expect it to be, showing that they too are part of the deep state.

In other words, it will show the truth, one way or the other.  It’s the job of Washington bureaucrats to bury the truth.  The people need to make decisions based on what the FedGov tells them – not the truth.

    And when will those JFK assassination “Investigation” notes be released to the public?

    If y’all don’t understand, yet, the “public servant” class does not care about you, the crimes committed by “public servants”, or providing the truth in an investigation.

    They just want more of your stuff.

    The liability mitigation firm of Barr-Durham is achieving their goal of running the clock out.
    Durham’s team has everything they need for mass necktie parties using lamp posts on ‘K’ Street, if they were really inclined to do so.

    I expect nothing better form Barr, who is a Bush-Clinton deep state guy in sheep’s clothing. Remember, Barr headed the Justice Dept. for the Ruby Ridge massacre., and later claimed he was not involved. He also pushed gun control during the Clinton years.

    Trump needs to kick Barr to the curb and find someone who will really go after the Obama/Clintons/Biden axis of evil.

    If such a person exists.

    I subscribe to a service that daily provides three quotes from historical figures on the topic of “liberty”. Apropos of the instant discussion, today’s offering included this from Madison:

    “A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
    — James Madison
    (1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President

    Hopefully Trump gets re-elected and fires Barr. But I’m not holding my breath.

    Barr has worked himself into a nice little position hasn’t he. If Biden wins he will have blackmail material the likes of which threaten the entire democrat party. If Trump wins he is still in the catbird seat. He can use the investigative material to whatever end he chooses.

    Barr was Pappy Bush’s AG. He is still Pappy Bush’s man.

    But Barr plays the bagpipes good, and that gets the “conservatives” greatly aroused.

  12. On October 13, 2020 at 4:16 am, Hudson H Luce said:

    Trump had been obviously compromised by the time the purge of Bannon et al occurred, about three months into his administration. He is nominally Chief Executive, but has actual control over very little in the way of policy.

  13. On October 13, 2020 at 7:38 pm, Randolph Scott said:

    Barr is an overweight NoBody that just happens to be appointed US Atty General. He needs to be unappointed because he is worthless. He is more worthless than a typical self entitled nba blackass.
