Surber is talking about Dem fears that their absurd Impeachment Theater is about to get squashed by Reality--yes, the capital "R" is intended. According to the Daily Kos, Barr is preparing a comprehensive All-Conspiracies-Report--a report that will gather all "Trump conspiracy theories into one package. The Daily Kos is preparing the spin: It's all just to divert attention from Orange Man Bad! So here's Surber's conclusion:
Daily Kos, citing no sources, reported,
"Barr and his associates have been racing to complete this report so that it can be dropped on the impeachment inquiry before the holidays. Major parts of the report apparently remain unwritten, but the fact that the publicity campaign is getting underway in advance of the report’s completion is not exactly a sign that this is going to be a contrite nothing major found report. And Barr has been at the center of forwarding Trump’s conspiracy theories and supporting attacks on the intelligence community. He’s already said, 'I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal. I think spying did occur, but the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.'
"The report coming back could declare no evidence to support Trump’s conspiracy theories and say that Barr found that spying to be adequately predicated. Don’t count on it. And don’t count on there not being indictments."
Democrats are afraid because they know there is no such thing as adequately predicating political spying. This is Obama's Watergate.
Whether Barr is up to the task remains to be seen. I doubt it, in part because I think he wants to live.
Chuck Schumer said the intelligence community can get back at you six ways to Sunday. We have only seen three of their ways.
Actually, of course, there could be adequate predication for spying on a political campaign. The problem for the Dems, in the case of the Trump campaign, is to persuade a doubting public that the Steele "dossier" was "adequate predication." Yes, go ahead and laugh.
