Ever since the Justice Department announced late last week that U.S. Attorney John Durham managed to secure a guilty plea in the first prosecution brought as a result of his criminal probe into the origins of the ‘Spygate’ scandal, the media has taken a hard pass on reporting the development.
Except when they want to quote Democrats poo-poohing the coming indictment as nothing more than Durham being a political operative for President Trump.
That’s rich, considering the upper echelon of the DoJ and FBI consisted of politicized operatives loyal to the deep state and its then-master, Barack Obama — hence the bogus Spygate ‘Russian collusion’ hoax to begin with.
But in fact, Durham is a stand-up guy, according to people who know him. And that’s why Attorney General William Barr picked him.
Breitbart News reports:
Andrew Lelling, U.S. attorney for the Massachusetts district, said U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham is an apolitical prosecutor, offering his remarks on SiriusXM's Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak.
Durham was selected by Attorney General William Barr to probe the origins of the Obama administration's ostensible investigation — which continued with the operation led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller during the Trump administration — of alleged 'Russian interference' in the 2016 election.
'I know John Durham a little bit,' said Lelling. 'He was U.S. attorney in Connecticut. He is a long-time prosecutor within the Justice Department. I think he's in probably about 30 years. He's probably the least political prosecutor I've ever met.'
Lelling added, 'So while I don't know the underlying details — or pros and cons of the investigation he's doing — what I do know is that any accusation against Durham that he is acting out of political motives, I'm confident is false. That guy is a prosecutor's prosecutor. He is an absolute straight shooter.'
[Breitbart editor Joel] Pollak noted widespread Democrat and news media denigration of the Durham-led investigation as 'political' and conducted in bad faith.
Yep. And there’s nothing new about that.
After all, the worthless ‘mainstream media’ regurgitated every single Spygate lie that they were fed without question.
Because they were in on the plot.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
