Justice expands investigation into coup attempt against Trump

The Justice Department investigation by John Durham into the Obama-initiated spying on the Trump campaign, followed by an effort to frame Trump with the fake accusation that he colluded with the Russians, has now been expanded.

Fox News previously reported that Durham would be reviewing the days leading up to the 2016 election and through the inauguration.

However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.

Meanwhile, the Democrats effort to frame Trump again, this time in connection with his phone call with the head of Ukraine, continues to unravel. Some recent stories:

As I noted in my October 1 essay on the fake nature of the Democrat’s impeachment effort, this mirrors the situation with their fake Russian-collusion accusations. As more evidence is uncovered the more untrustworthy those accusations appear.

I remain skeptical at the seriousness of the Trump Justice Department’s new investigation however. The MO of the Washington Republican crowd so far has been to gather information that shows the corruption within the federal government, release it, and then do nothing. Unless they move forward with actual indictments this will all be another variation of failure theater.

UPDATE: This article, Who Does the Whistleblower Know?, provides a nice timeline and summary of what we presently know, all of which appear to point to real corruption on the part of both Joe Biden and the Democrats in Congress and the executive bureaucracy.

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit. If you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News

    It seems like they are trying to slow walk it, until they can put it off until after the election.

    1. Why all of the treachery and deceit and deep state set up situations to take out Trump for the Democrats?

    Because that is all the Democrats have and that is how dangerous Trump actually is to their agenda. Trump has caused the manifestation of the Democrat party existential death spiral.

    And in addition the Democrats no longer have an American centric agenda, they have mutated and now have a Globalist / anti American type agenda where their prime function is pointing out the inequities in life between groups of people, confiscating wealth from the industrious “Others”, and becoming the permanent middle men in between the two which is where they create their purpose and power. Thats it, that is all they have. And the mass of the voting American public are observing and absorbing it all and will be giving their feed back on the situation soon.

    2. Why all of the slow walking and no action so far?

    Because many on both sides of the political power equation have plans to plug into the money machine that feeds them after they “serve” (Themselves) and / or their family memebers or friends are currently plugged in to the money machine and would certainly become caught up in the sweep. The Hunter Biden / Joe Biden China / Ukrain manipulations clearly demonstrate this. CLEARLY, Joe, there is no doubt about it.

    I strongly suspect based on Barr’s posture and statements, particularly this one when an interviewer dared to ask about his concern about HIS legacy. His response: “Everyone dies”. Possibly the most chilling statement ever uttered by an Attorney General and heard by those who he would dare investigate and prosecute.

    And the fact that Barr and John Durham got on a plane and went to Italy together is another very strong indicator to my thinking that something of consequence is more likely to happen than not.

    This may become soooo huge and far reaching if Barr proceeds as is required that some other form of reconcilliation may be needed, possibly akin to the South African method devised for forgiveness? Confess your sins for some level of consequence and / or forgiveness? Pardons from the president in exchange for an honest confession? The Constitutional cleansing must happen for all of our sakes.

    What ever is coming I strongly suspect that it will be more rather than less.

    It will become much crazier and more contentious before it gets any better. And in the end, this is the best thing that can happen in the country. To sit and be content because all is calm in Washington is a signal that corruption and abuse of power is rampant.

    This chaos is just what the doctor, Dr. Jefferson, and his associates ordered.

    Obama ran out the clock on damaging investigations into his administration’s illegal activity. Now, his cronies in government, media, and the DNC are going to run out the clock on Trump doing anything about it.

    It wouldn’t surprise me that even if Trump is re-elected, that we wont see things fully investigated by the end if his second term.

    A little bit more bad news for the Democrat leadership:

    Trey Gowdy knows the system, knows the players and knows the rules and will be a big problem for the impeachment strategy. Is this the real reason that he retired form the Congress?

    Tick, tick, tick, tick………


    Its all on Barrs shoulders, will he pull the trigger? (thats what its beginning to look like)

    Bill Barr walks into the bar, and things start to go down.

    Tick, tick, tick, tick. We wait.

    Bill Barr referring to his concern about his legacy: “Everyone dies”. Not good for those who are under the magnifying glass.
