Attorney General Bill Barr has granted John Durham an expansion of his investigation into what started the Russian collusion hoax. James Clapper, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, and John Brennan, Obama’s CIA Director, are now expected to be interviewed by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham.

Two weeks ago, during a CNN interview, James Clapper was asked if he thinks it is right that Attorney General Barr is investigating actions taken by former administration officials. James Clapper replied that he was merely following the orders of President Obama.

“A review launched by Attorney General William Barr into the origins of the Russia investigation has expanded significantly amid concerns about whether the probe has any legal or factual basis,” multiple current, and former, officials told NBC News.

The prosecutor conducting the review, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, has expressed his intent to interview a number of current and former intelligence officials involved in examining Russia’s effort to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, Brennan told NBC News.

“Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia’s activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said…” – NBC News

The revelation that some of these officials are obtaining lawyers to respond to a non-criminal investigation into the origins of the Russia collusion investigation is very revealing. While James Comey was still FBI Director, he had officials interview Gen Michael Flynn, and in the process, they told him that he did not need a lawyer present. Some of these very officials may now be obtaining lawyers themselves, while at the same time professing that they were merely following orders and did not do anything wrong intentionally.

With Inspector General Horowitz’s report on FISA and other issues coming out shortly, we will see if they lawyered up just as a precaution, or because they might have been part of possible illegal actions.

    The entire Russian Saga has to culminate in some wrongdoing by someone and consequences NEED to be assigned. Otherwise, You will have another half of the population losing faith in their Government, politicians, and relevant agencies. We, as citizens, sit by and watch this unfold as did the Democrats with Meuller and when you get to the end and there is nothing to sink your teeth into credibility and integrity is lost all over the place. I’m not expecting too much but I am expecting that if there is some form of sabotage (Soft Coup) or remnants of wrongdoing then there needs to be an indictment as if it were an Tom, Dick or Harry walking the streets today. We need to eclipse the notion that there are two sets of Rules of Law for all of us. We should all be held accountable to the same and in this case, if not the strictest standards. There is a great deal of implied autonomy and power that goes with some positions based on Clearance levels, information surrounding those individuals, and people’s positions in general. IF they cannot be trusted to carry out their assignments with the UTMOST integrity and honor then they need to be removed and if they break any laws or rules of engagement while they are working in that capacity they need to be held 100% accountable and pay the piper for their misdeeds. This is basic and fundamental behavior for ALL of us to follow and NO ONE is exempt.
    I do hope this inquiry provides answers, recommendations, and subsequent actions to follow those recommendations otherwise it will have been done in vain. At that point, we are all no further along towards living in a civil and honest society until that day is upon us.

  • It is highly improbable that any of the remaining Democrat candidates could defeat a sitting President especially President Trump given his record of success in the Oval Office . Not any of the candidates stands out as a strong competitor against the President

  • Debra O'Neal says:

    Excellent comment!! You have “hit it right on the head” and MORE people need to send this message to our White House. I believe with all my heart that our POTUS is with us and he knows exactly how we feel. However, with EVERYTHING he is battling in Washington right now, some things will and do get pushed back. Also, we need to remember that timing is of the utmost importance!! Thank you for your comments, good read….

  • Dennis Donnelly says:

    There can be little doubt that Brennan and Clapper abused their offices in an attempt to damage Trump, regardless of what the consequences are.

  • Tactical11 says:

    President does feel EXACTLY the same way which is WHY these investigations are ongoing and the evidence will lead right to the top ( Obama WH) as being behind weaponizing the Federal Law Enforcement and Intelligence apparatus against a political opponent. This is “Watergate” x 1000.

  • Chris Cagle says:

    Absolutely they need to be interviewed, they weaponized their agencies to create the Russian hoax.

  • Beverly says:

    ALL FOUR OF THE MEN, COMEY, MCCABE, CLAPPER AND BRENNAN ARE ALL DEEPLY INVOLVED IN THE RUSSIA INCIDENT. BRENNAN WAS EVEN A COMMUNIST (REGISTERED). THESE 4 MEN NEED TO GO TO TRIAL AND BE SENTENCED INTO PRISON. AND NOT THE SWANKY GOLF CLUB PRISON, EITHER. THERE ARE A LOT OF FBI MEMBERS THAT NEED TO BE FIRED. ALSO CHRISTOPHER WRAY. HE HAS BEEN SILENT AND HE HAS STONEWALLED ANY REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION. It is a shame that we have so many people serving in our government that are corrupt. Lower level Page, both OHRS, Stroyk and any other FBI people. It is such a massive number that it is hard to remember “ALL!”

  • Beverly says:

    I agreee with everything you said. It is a shame that we allowed these corrupt people to get such a foothold in America’s democracy. These are desperate people, and I hope they all go to prison.

  • Jaine says:

    These men are guilty of treason. That is still an executable offense. There is no, “sentencing to prison.” This will be a death sentence for all involved.

  • Kenneth McCarthy says:

    Nice quietly taking them down

  • C.marto says:

    Hopefully Durham/Barr will expose guilty parties regardless of WHO they are.

  • Tracy says:

    I am so done with media and Russia, Russia, Russia. The Clinton’s have NEVER had to answer for their misdeeds if pay to play and have lived off of foreign money and the American people since Bill left office. Now we see Biden and his son basically doing the same thing but just a little differently. It is only because Trump brought it into the light. I really have no hope that all of those who used their power and positions to go after Trump in 2016 will face any consequences. There are 2 tiers of justice and they revolve around how much money you have and what your position is in society. Dems do whatever they want and NEVER have a consequence. Just look at the secret hearings they are having right now. This is what happens in communist countries and no one can stop them. I am really concerned for where our Country is headed.

  • Carol Haynese says:

    The “screwing” of Patriot’s demand answers. The ability for legislators to become millionaires in DC on the backs of hard working men and women is unconcienable. Were we fooled? That is a deafening NO!
    The “WILL OF THE PEOPLE” is bandied about from the mouths of thieves as if every citizen of the United States is unaware of
    the simmering cess pool of Washington DC. The Dems, and sadly some Reps, teeter on the brink of insanity while “the small people” live under the crushing stress of watching our country and our freedoms torn from us.
    Our beloved President Donald J Trump has worked feverishly to restore our country and return to us unsullied our land of the free. I love our fearless President and resounding defeat handed to the Dems.
    He LOVES our country!
    To unbelievers I say this; Educate yourself, dig deeper on your own, not allowing anyone to tell you who to hate. It is out there, look. In 2020 and you are faced with a ballot, vote as if your children’s life depends on it
    because it does!!

  • Oh Daddy says:

    They also need to have all personal and family assets stripped from them and any other person or business that benefited from their corruption.
    This will send a real message to the
    next set of people that want to attempt TREASON or SEDITION.

  • Robert Norvell says:

    You are right on Jaine

  • Paula J. Smith says:

    God bless AG Barr. At least now Americans will see who are the real liars. God bless Gen. Flynn & his family who were put thru hell and back.
    VOTERS: WAKE UP !!!!
    The Democrates have done nothing but focus on Pres. Trump and deflect the truth from their own lack of service to their constituents. I hope the voters display their displeasures next month by voting for Republicans of their local governments. This will send an undeniable message that we citizens are tired of the bull**** being shoveled out by the Swamp Democrats.
    God bless Fox’s Mr. Hannity, Mr. Jarrett, Mr. Levin, & others for their dedication to honesty. When are the other news channels going to stop their stupidity? Learn to write and report facts and only facts they have personally verified.
    God bless President Trump and God bless America.

  • Mike M says:

    I agree 100 Percent!

  • Paula J. Smith says:

    If anyone has any doubt about corrupt news reporting just review the final Trump/Clinton debate. You will notice how many times Hillary tapped her nose. Within a couple days Mr. Stephanopoulos and Ms. King reported and displayed when Hillary touched her nose the bias commentator would throw it back for Hillary to rebut Trump regardless the fact she had already responded.

  • Freebie says:

    They all need to do long prison sentences and that includes corrupt crooked Hillary and that dog eater Obie. What horrendous traitors!!

  • tina says:

    This whole scenario is this called coup attempt because Trump is working for the american people and giving tge government back to the people! Trump is threat to them and their power! So making this crap up is hoping to get him impeach go after Pence and try to Nervous Nancy into power! This is sick and I hope and pray that what is revealed someone will be held accountable!

  • Michael G Marriam says:

    “Just following orders”: Nuremberg baby!

  • Robbie says:

    Don’t forget, Obama wanted to hear from ZSTROK & Paige, Brennan, Clapper, Comey and whoever else he and Killary hired to spy on the Trump Campaign!! They are attempting to overthrow the President of the United States and it’s been going on for 3 years!! The Demonrats and Liberal Socialists have impeded President Trump from doing his job and they are undermining his Foreign Affairs Policies!!! It is CLEAR that the Main Stream Media and the Libtards on the Left have such animosity towards our President and a VERY CLEAR BIAS. I hope there will be some very REAL consequences for the “attempted Coup” that has been going on since day one!!!

  • “Just following orders”, Mr.Clapper? Veeerrry Interestink. Emphasis on the stink, as the fish rots from the head down.
    BHO, along with his “wingman” Eric Holder, weaponized every single arm of the United States government available to them, CIA, FBI, IRS, you name it, to violate the civil rights of ordinary Americans, let alone their intention to overturn the people’s choice of DJT to execute the office of President of the United States. They and every tool (emphasis on tool) in their tool shed (Brennen, Clapper, Comey, et al) must be fully investigated for violating their oaths of office “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”. WE THE PEOPLE are the power granters here, and the abuse of the power we granted must be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Mr. Barr, uphold your oath and do your duty.
    You seem to be off to a good start. While you’re at it, you might want to delve into the recent “selling” of the powers of the offices of the Vice President and Secretary of State by their recent former occupants. The smell from those tool sheds is offensive to the people as well.
    Do your duty. Let the power of the people’s courts, in fair and open settings, render judgement on all those fairly charged. It is time for sunshine to disinfect, and for fair and equal justice to reign. Do your duty.
