MSNBC is trotting out their national security analyst Malcolm Nance to spread unfounded and frankly, ridiculous rumors about President Trump stealing the 2020 election by going after Obama, Biden, Clinton, and Brennan for corruption and treason. Heck of a way to make living for a guy who was in the Navy at one point and has since gone off the deep end.
He floated his accusation with no evidence and as a rumor that the Department of Justice’s newly-launched criminal investigation into the origins of the agency’s Trump-Russia probe could be “the ultimate distraction to help steal an election.” Do tell. Where have we heard this before? Oh yeah, it’s a remix of the 2016 presidential election allegations by the left and the media. Democrats always accuse Republicans of conspiring to steal an election when they are about to lose.
“WARNING: I heard a DC rumor fm a close Trump source in May 2017 he wanted to charge Obama, Biden, Brennen & Clinton w/treason over Russia. Now with Barr as AG this may be crazy but viable. It could incite civil unrest…the ultimate distraction to help steal an election,” Nance wrote on Twitter. Give me a freaking break. He knows it’s the left that is into attempting to steal elections no matter what it takes even if it means a coup. This guy has been spewing slanderous and libelous lies against Trump for years now.
“The Justice Department had previously considered it to be an administrative review, and Attorney General William Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to lead the inquiry into the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. It is unclear when Durham’s inquiry shifted to a criminal investigation.
“Durham is examining what led the U.S. to open a counterintelligence investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign and the roles that various countries played in the U.S. probe. He is also investigating whether the surveillance methods and intelligence-gathering methods used during the investigation were legal and appropriate.
“Shifting the DOJ’s sweeping review into a criminal probe enables Durham to subpoena witnesses for testimony and documents. It also authorizes Durham to impanel a grand jury and file charges. The development was first reported by the New York Times.
“Joining Nance in expressing concern about the development was CNN legal analyst Elie Honig, who accused the Trump administration was “fully weaponizing DOJ for political purposes.”
“Attorneys General *can* be impeached,” Honig noted.

“In a subsequent tweet, the CNN employee downplayed Durham’s new reported powers, predicting the probe will “never convict a single person on a single count.”
“News of the criminal probe follows an NBC report stating Barr recently expanded his agency’s review, noting that Durham has “found something significant and critics should be careful.” Durham reportedly requested interviews with several CIA analysts involved in studying Russia’s activities during the 2016 presidential election, prompting some of them to hire lawyers.
“Durham has reportedly received briefings on the “four corners” of the FBI’s use of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants as part of the bureau’s counterintelligence operation into the Trump campaign. “Durham is specifically reviewing the FISA warrant obtained by the FBI to surveil former Trump aide Carter Page, as well as general issues relating to surveillance during the 2016 campaign and matters flowing from the FISA process,” Fox News previously reported.
“Appearing before Congress in May, Barr testified that he believed “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign, but would not comment on whether it was undertaken within accordance of the law.
“I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” he told the Senate Appropriations Committee, before adding, “I am not suggesting that those rules were violated, but I think it’s important to look at them.”’
Ok haters. Let’s make a deal. I know enough from the available public record and my career as a prosecutor to see that even if Barr dredges up charges here, he will never convict a single person on a single count. If you disagree, say it on record now and I’ll laugh later.

Gee, the left weaponizes impeachment whenever they don’t like what someone is doing evidently. And they aren’t untouchable… if Barr and Durham can gather valid evidence and testimony, these people will have to answer for their crimes. Their arrogance is their downfall here.
You can just smell the fear on the left over all this. And all of America is smiling because of it.
