Investigative reporter Sara Carter: If Durham doesn’t bring indictments, nothing will stop ‘attempted coups’ in future

Maybe the next time the president won't be as strong as Trump

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) In the shadows of the daily anti-Trump news cycle and against the backdrop of the president’s impeachment drama, a lone U.S. prosecutor continues his work to unravel details behind the most brazen coup attempt in the history of our country.



U.S. Attorney John Durham, appointed by Attorney General William Barr to look into the origins of the Obama-era “Spygate” probe of the 2016 campaign of President Donald Trump, is now conducting a criminal investigation, suggesting that he believes laws were violated.

Of course, that fact alone doesn’t automatically translate into indictments, as we’ve seen time and again when it comes to Justice Department decisions in the past to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for criminal mishandling of classified emails and James Comey for criminal violations of leaking sensitive materials.

And that’s going to be a very big problem in the future if the effort by Durham does not produce some tangible results like indictments and, hopefully, prison sentences for the guilty, investigative reporter and Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter told Sean Hannity Friday night.

The network reported:

Investigative reporter Sarah Carter said Friday it will be hard to defend against flimsy investigations and violations of civil liberties if Connecticut federal prosecutor John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Russia investigation doesn’t result in strong indictments.

Carter told “Hannity” that the known facts should help defend against a repeat of the FBI actions that ensnared former Trump campaign associate Carter Page and others during the 2016 campaign.

“The important thing to remember here is that even though Attorney General William Barr is going to have all of these new rules in place in an effort to avoid this happening in the future, I talked to sources today: Former senior FBI officials that say if there aren’t indictments — if people don’t actually pay the price for what happened here — which was an attempted coup, basically, on the president of the United States, and also just destroying the civil liberties of an American citizen, Carter Page, then what’s going to stop the next person?” she said.

It’s hard to argue with that, but Americans concerned with what Obama allowed his FBI and Justice Department to do — target the presidential campaign of a major party candidate — have little faith at this point that anything substantive is going to happen to the guilty.

Time and again “official Washington” has demonstrated there really are two systems of justice in America — one for the tiny elite and one for the rest of us. That said, there is evidence that Durham’s investigation is progressing, as we reported last month.

From her new perch at CBS News, ace national security and investigative reporter Cathrine Herridge reported late last week that Durham, appointed directly by Attorney General William Barr, was onto a “strong paper trail” of documents that surfaced in the first several months following the president’s inauguration in January of 2017.

As reported by fellow ace investigative correspondent Sara A. Carter, “The documents, which are being kept close hold, were hinted at by Attorney General William Barr in an interview he did with NBC in December and reported on by CBS News Friday.”

Carter notes that the documents “span a time period from January, 2017 until May 2017, just before the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.”

Barr has already hinted at the expansive nature of the Durham criminal probe. In June we noted:

The Justice Department on Monday announced that its probe into abuses of the FISA court and surveillance authorities by U.S. intelligence, federal law enforcement, and ‘third-party” non-governmental organizations against the 2016 Trump campaign have been expanded and are “broad,” as legal experts predicted convictions at the end of the process.

Attorney General William Barr pledged a ‘deep dive’ into what appear to be systemic abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court by ranking DoJ, FBI, and intelligence officials in the Obama administration, as his hand-picked U.S. attorney, Connecticut-based John Durham, casts a wider net.

“The review is broad in scope and multifaceted, and is intended to illuminate open questions regarding the activities of U.S. and foreign intelligence services as well as non-governmental organizations and individuals,” said Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).



Around the same time, we noted that Durham had already met a number of times with Barr.

Time will tell. If anything, President Trump is shrewd and it could very well be he’s biding his time with this probe — and, perhaps, a separate Rudy Giuliani-led investigation into the Bidens, should those findings become politically ‘useful.’

But Carter’s assessment is the correct one, we believe: If the guilty get away with the coup attempt against Trump, there will be another one. And maybe that president won’t be nearly as strong as our current president.

No doubt, the perpetrators of the coup attempt got away with massive violations of the law. This is cops protecting their own, even dirty cops. How high does it go?

“We can’t take that chance. We have to have an insurance policy.” Well, I am part of the insurance policy. Me and my vote! If the guilty remain free from prosecution for trying to nullify an election, What I and everyone who agrees can do is shun and shame and make their life living hell. So bad they will have to abandon life within the shores of the U.S. as did their corrupt President Obama. Seriously, what would you say to Comey, Brennan, MCcabe, Clapper, Strock, Page, if you had the chance? I surely can think of several things. If… Read more »

I am very concerned that NOTHING has happened, NOBODY has been charged, and THE CROOKS are all yelling on TV, every day. Some excuse the speed by saying “justice grinds out slowly”… When NOTHING has happened, I don’t believe it…

I am sorry to say, but I don’t see anything happening on this past a few low-level folks being sacrificed while the rest get a scolding.

A career Beltway relative fairly high in the federal govt told me 40 years ago when Reagan was elected:
“Presidents come and go. We are always here. We are the ones who really do everything.”

Anything you see in the way of “justice” will be window dressing. The war against the socalled Deep State people are talking about was lost a long time ago.

This goes directly to Obama and everybody under him , every single person involved MUST BE PROSECUTED to the fullest extent of the law . This is by far the largest criminal corruption case in United States history and we know a ton of people in Obama’s administration committed Treason including himself and MUST MUST MUST be charged with it. Barr better bring in a lot more prosecutors because Durham can only handle so much. Many say Barr DOES NOT have what it takes and he is likely to let a lot of criminals off the hook . Everybody on… Read more »

My great, great grandpa was a hanging judge. The only Justice for times like these is Military Justice, and President Trump signed the paperwork to take down satanic pedophiles and traitors in 2017. GITMO has been remodeled, and 160+ new personnel added. Demon-seeds are fucked!

Durham will come through, or we will have a 2nd American Revolution where citizen Patriots will organize, arrest, and hang traitors!

That’s my prediction!

I AGREE WITH SARA TOTALLY… THERE ABSOLUTELY “HAS” TO BE JAIL TIME SENTENCES FOR “ALL” THE GUILTY PARTIES INVOLVED IN THIS COUP… WHICH MEANS, DOZENS OF THEM. OTHERWISE WE CAN KISS OUR SUPPOSED REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT GOODBYE, AND THANK OUR FOREFATHERS FOR WHAT THEY DID FOR US FOR AS LONG AS IT LASTED… FOR FROM THAT DISMAL POINT WE ARE HEADED FOR THE SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT THE LEFT SO DESPERATELY DESIRES, AND THE DEEP STATE WINS.

The best timing for some indictments is May and June at the latest. Barr will not want to be accused of manipulating the vote which is against DOJ policy in any event.

People like me, which is to say nobodies and everybody have been saying the exact same thing for three years now. And here’s something else I’ve been saying. If Trump doesn’t begin to hurt not only his political opponents, but the vested interests that have been opposing him, he will never get any respect from them. Why should they? Why would they? They oppose him for free. There should be a price, a considerable price that they should have to calculate and weight.

Globalists want us to revolt. Then the steel boot can come down and their reign of oppressive terror can start in earnest. There will be no indictments, there will be NO enforcement of the law on anyone that agrees with dissolving our country, NONE. If they press, I guess the people should AIM HIGH, while they go low.

Don’t worry about it. Most of us recognize that we’re living in the Final Days before the Second Coming. If Durham can’t get it done, we all know Someone who certainly will.

Dems are holding the door open for more coup attempts. It is the public reaction that should be worrisome if Barr/Durham do not serve indictments on and prosecute the coup plotters and participants.

I hope that Durham & Burr are just being shrewd and holding their powder until that have “beyond a reasonable doubt” in the bag. THEN fire away. I don’t think it’ll happen before the election however.

Well, the few firings that have happened this week are steps in the right direction. I do think that POTUS is extremely patient when it comes to seeing something through. I like to believe that he is just waiting for something before they start with indictments and arrests. It may be he’s waiting for the goods on Biden and I just saw today that Rudy has turned over all of his evidence to the DOJ, Barr actually acknowledged that today. It’s gotten so out of control that its going to be a marathon battle to remove certain aspects of it… Read more »
