Remarks: In his interviews this week, Barr provided a treasure trove of information about what stands to be one of the most important investigations into our U.S. intelligence community of our time. His signposts indicate that we can expect a shakeup of a system that may have been broken for decades.

(01.) Durham outcomes not till late spring/summer 2020
(02.) The FBI did spy on Trump.
(03.) Surveillance of Trump campaign associates was a travesty and there were many; cases of abuse.
(04.) Day 1 the FBI investigation generated exculpatory information tending to point to the targets innocence and nothing that corroborated Russia collusion
(05.) It’s a big deal to use the US. law enforcement and intelligence resources to investigate the opposing political party and I cannot think of another recent instance in which this happened.
(06.) Evidence to start the investigation into Trump associates was flimsy from the start and based on the idea that trump aide George Papadopoulos expressed he may have had pre-knowledge of a democratic national committee computer hack, however, it was actually just an offhand bar room comment by a young campaign aide who described it a merely a suggestion of a suggestion a vague allusion to the fact that the Russians may have had something they can dump. But by that time on May 2016, there was already rampant speculation online and in political circles that the Russians had hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails in 2014 and that they might surface, so that the idea Papadopoulos comment showed pre-knowledge of the democratic national committee hack and dump is a big stretch.
(07.) It was wrong for the FBI to presume the trump campaign was part of a plot they should have gone to the campaign and discussed the suspicions.
(08.) The normal thing to do would be to tell the campaign that there could be an attempted foreign interference, there is no legitimate explanation as to why the FBI did not do this, the FBI’s explanation is that they only do defensive briefings, they are certain if there is no chance that they are tipping no one-off, this simply is not true and is not plausible and doesn’t hold water because our intelligence officials and President Barrack Obama, repeatedly contacted the Russians, the guilty party to tell them to cut it out.
(09.) If the purpose were to protect the election, you would have given the Trump campaign a defensive briefing you could have disrupted any foreign activity in time to protect the US. election.
(10.) As to the FBI’s motive, that why we have Durham; I’m not saying the motivation where improper but it’s premature to say they weren’t
(11.) The inspector general operates differently as an internal watchdog; Horowitz approach is to say that if people involved give reasonable explanations for what appears to be wrongdoing and he can’t find documented or testimonial evidence to the contrary he accepts it.
(12.) Contrary to much reporting Horowitz did not rule out improper motive he did not find documentary or testimonial evidence of improper motive those are two different things.
(13.) Instead of talking to the Trump campaign the FBI wired up sources and had them talk to four people affiliated with the Trump campaign in Aug Sept and Oct 2016.
(14.) All the information from the surveillance came back to exculpatory regarding any supposed relationship to Russia and specific facts, but the FBI didn’t inform the FISA court which approved wire tapes against former trump campaign volunteer carter page four times.
(15.) At one point early on the FBI didn’t have enough probable cause for a wiretap warrant so it took the Steele dossier information against trump which they had done nothing to verify and use that to get the wiretaps.
(16.) The wiretaps allowed the FBI to go back and capture carter pages communications, emails and other material from weeks months and even years ago.
(17.) Should the four FBI applications to wiretap the Trump campaign aid carter page have ever been made considering there were seventeen, critical omissions or errors by the FBI making it appear they had better evidence than they had, this is the meat of the issue if you spend time to look at what happened you would be appalled
(18.) The FBI withheld from the court all of the exculpatory information and lack of reliability of the main FBI source, Christopher Steele who was being paid by the democratic national committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to find evidence connecting Trump to Russia.
(19.) The major takeaway is that after the election in January the FBI finally talked to one of Steele’s important sources to try to verify some of the dossier information and sourcing, as they are required to do, this Steele source told the FBI he didn’t know what Steele was talking about in the dossier and he had told Steele that the information he had provided was supposition and theory at that point it was clear that the dossier was a shame, yet the FBI didn’t tell the court and continued to get wiretaps based on the dossier.
(20.) Further, the FBI told the FISA court that Steele’s source, had been proven reliable and truthful in fact what the source had told the truth about was the dossier was garbage, it is hard to look at this and not think that it was gross abuse.
(21.) Were the four FISA judges who approved the wiretaps against trumps campaign associate Carter Page badly misled by the FBI; yes!
(22.) Are people going to be held accountable including people at the very top of our intelligence agencies and FBI, we they’ve all gone
(23.) The whole Russian collusion hype was a bogus narrative hype by an irresponsible press that proved entirely false in the end. Are former FBI agent James Comey and former FBI agent Andrew McCabe and others implicated in the Durham investigation I think there was a failure of leadership in that group quoting the inspector general that the explanations he received we not satisfactory you can draw your own conclusions
(24.) Why haven’t we already thrown people in prison these things take time, the government has to have proof beyond a reasonable doubt before we indict, it is a substantial hurdle, nobody is going to be indicted and go to jail unless this standard is met.
