Elder Patriot – Well, well, well. It looks like the Democrats’ interminable investigation into all things Trump has blown up in their faces.
Despite overwhelming media support for their brazen plan to subvert the presidency of Donald Trump, a new Hill-HarrisX survey found that a majority of registered voters now support an inquiry into whether official procedures were followed when the FBI began examining allegations of connections between Donald Trump‘s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.
The poll, taken between May 17-18, found that a whopping 62% of respondents support Attorney General William Barr’s appointment of U.S. Attorney John Durham to determine the origins of the Obama administration spy operations against its political opponents.
That leaves only 38% who don’t want answers to the extent of the Obama-era surveillance abuse by the intelligence community.
The poll found broad agreement in favor of the probe, across all age groups.
The results of the poll makes it politically impossible to move forward with impeachment though a growing number of Democrats, desperate to head off what’s coming, have begun pushing for it anyway.
After listening carefully to Barr’s Senate testimony, we can well imagine the reason why.
It is an almost certainty that Durham’s probe is going to implicate multiple intelligence agencies. And, when that happens, the one person they are determined to save at all costs, former President Obama, will be exposed for having run the Russia scam out of the White House.

Barr: “…spying on a political campaign is a big deal…I’m not talking about the FBI necessarily but intelligence agencies more broadly.”
Barr’s words, coupled with announcement of Durham’s appointment and the scope of his investigation, explains the recent public comments by former DNI Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and former FBI General Counsel James Baker, in addition to those of the ever-present former FBI Director James Comey.
Where Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Huber are specifically limited to investigating Comey’s FBI, Durham has a much broader mandate.
Durham is charged with investigating every intelligence agency that was involved in the Trump-Russia set up… a road that Special Counsel Robert Mueller assiduously avoided.
Kevin R. Brock, an FBI special agent for 24 years and the former assistant director of intelligence for the FBI, views their recent rush to comment and their easy access to public media platforms as a means to coordinating and communicating their stories among themselves.
Writing in the Hill, Brock opined:
Ordinarily, this type of witness activity is troubling, if not borderline obstructive when done privately. In this case, Durham may be licking his chops as a prosecutor since a certain element of finger-pointing among the principals has emerged.
Each [Brennan, Clapper, Baker, Comey, et al] also is dealing with an elephant that’s not just in the room but sitting uncomfortably in their laps. Christopher Steele’s dossier is clearly a Russian intelligence operation (“active measure” in IC-speak) that took advantage of a cooperative outreach by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
If these IC leaders didn’t recognize it as such, then it truly was amateur hour at the top. The more troubling scenario would be if each made a conscious decision to ignore the obvious Russian interference attempt and, instead, wring political value out of the dossier.
As the corrupt actions of the intel agency heads become known to the public, it will be virtually impossible to hide Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s involvement in the corrupt scheme to take down Donald Trump.
Think about for just a minute. Clinton and Obama were the Democratic Party’s chosen leaders. If they were corrupt, and no one in the entire party came forward to do anything by defend them, what does that do the party’s future credibility?
Investigative reporter John Solomon, has reported that “Bucket Five” will be the first batch of documents to be declassified.
Bucket Five comprises intelligence documents that were presented to the Gang of Eight in 2016. They pertain to the FISA application used against U.S. person Carter Page. They include all exculpatory intelligence documents that may not have been presented to the FISA Court.

It’s now just a matter of time until Trump pulls the plug on the swamp that Obama left behind.
