Despite restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic and resulting lockdown, US Attorney John Durham and his team have continued investigating the deep state putsch attempt against President Trump ‘very aggressively.’ Attorney General Bill Barr announced as much recently, lending vocal support to his hand-picked investigator.
Durham’s investigation has been looking into the origins of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation for months. Evidence already shows that top Obama administration security officials abused their power and likely committed treason to illegally surveil and sabotage the Trump campaign and presidency.
Rosenstein just told Blumenthal that he did not agree with how the investigations started. He now follows AG Barr and John Durham who have made similar comments refuting the FBI and IG Horowitz.

Barr outlines evidence of abuse of power
Barr has appeared on Fox News to say, “For the first time in American history, police organizations and the National Security organizations were used to spy on a campaign, and there was no basis for it. And the media largely drove that and all kinds of sensational claims were being made about the president that could have affected the election, and then later on in his administration, there were actions taken that really appear to be efforts to sabotage his campaign, and that has to be looked at, and if people want to say that I’m political because I am looking at those potential abuses of power, so be it. But that’s the job of the attorney general.”
Barr is waiting for Durham’s investigation to conclude to comment on what it has uncovered. All he has said is that the results will be “eye opening for Americans.”

One major aspect of the investigation is that covering the Obama administration’s unmasking of Trump associates that they were spying on. Illegality appears to be a factor at every stage of what Obama and his people were doing here. The names of Obama-era officials involved in unmasking Trump associates surveilled by the NSA were released last month through the office of the Director of National Intelligence. The list of names includes Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan, Obama’s DNI Director James Clapper, Obama’s White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Barr has noted that ‘unmasking’ is not inherently illegal. However, the records of who was applying to unmask whom can unearth a pattern of illegal and unjustified surveillance and other questionable activities.
Barr has also noted that the Trump administration is exploring how to remove liability protections enjoyed by social media companies under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
