The "Durham Effect"--It's A Big Deal!

From Joe diGenova's WMAL interview this morning. Unfortunately he doesn't get into the Baker angle, but it's a nice big picture narrative:

diGenova: What you have going on right now, is, this is the Durham effect. It's like a halo. What's happening is, [Durham] is clearly investigating FBI officials and DoJ officials from the Obama era, along with Intelligence officials, for a conspiracy to violate the civil rights of Flynn, the President, and others and also to defraud the citizens of the United States. From that little letter [transmitting the Brady material] from the US Attorney in the Eastern District of Missouri we now learn a *boatload* about what Durham is doing. [comment about Durham hiring *former* FBI agents, not just current ones detailed to him]  
And in the middle of all this is David Ignatius of the Washington Post, who was the source of the famous story about Flynn's telephone call with Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador, about sanctions. It's unraveling. I expect charges--some against individuals, some as part of the conspiracy. A number of things. So, big week last week, a lot going on. 
Vince: Why would Durham hire *former* FBI agents? 
diGenova: Particular skills, and because he knows them. When you're doing something like this, which is *very* sensitive, and very *difficult,*--because this is a leak investigation as well as another type of criminal investigation--you need people you can trust. ... 
Mary: I question why it took so long for Flynn's attorneys to get this Brady evidence. ... We thought when President Trump became President and he puts his new people in and, listen, I get that we had to go through the whole thing with Jeff Sessions and hadda wait for the Mueller Report to come out, but it's been months since the Mueller report came out. Why now? Why has it taken so long? 
diGenova: Because it's coming to a breaking point. The Attorney General has tried to be patient and he's also tried to tamp down criticism by making a few statements, as you've seen, in the last week about how *serious* the investigation is, about how it's beyond just "troubling", it was serious, serious, violations of the law as far as he's concerned. 
In order to do that, in order to get to that point, you've gotta be locked and loaded from your investigation standpoint. You've gotta get people interviewed, you've gotta get people locked in on their testimony so that if they change their testimony later they can be prosecuted later for false statements--the *real, proper* use of false statements, not the phony Mueller/Weissmann use.  
And remember--What Durham is doing, he is *deconstructing* the Mueller/Weissmann inquiry. This investigation by Durham will show conclusively that the Mueller/Weissmann investigation was a fraud.  That it was never intended to find a crime. That it was intended to *entrap* the President, to get an impeachment for a false statement if he gave an interview. Which, of course, his lawyers and lawyers like us told him *never* to do, never give that information. ... 
It's taking time because he's destroying Mueller as he makes the case against Clapper, Brennan, Comey, and Sally Yates and others. This is a big deal. He's actually investigating the greatest crime in American history.

 As we've discussed here in the past, Durham is almost certainly a man on a mission. Years ago he was thwarted in his investigation of Mueller's corruption in Boston, and then saw Mueller rise to great heights in the Deep State--finally being designated by the Deep State to defenestrate the President of the United States.

Hmmm. I wonder what Rod Rosenstein is up to these days?


  1. Robert Mueller: Dirty Cop

    "What stands out most during then-FBI Director Mueller’s term in office is the two-tiered system of justice, when obvious crimes and scandals involving government officials and private-sector elites were ignored or even covered up by the FBI. What Mueller failed to do to protect our country says more than anything he did."

  2. It’s taking time because of this was a massive web of that included, whether intentional or not, some of Trump’s top guys like Sessions.

    Trump had to play this out to just survive.

  3. I hope General Flynn has had an awakening. He was a democrat, which makes me think he used to be naive or downright stupid about reality.
    Maybe he will have an awakening and get on the right side of history and help his country by talking about everything he knows about the Obama administration.

  4. Stunning tidbit gleened from DiGenova interview two days ago on Howie Carr's show:

    DiGenova says according to his sources in the past few days (as of Monday afternoon) Durham, in addition to two major conspiracy charges encompassing thousands of overt acts in support thereof, is looking at Obstruction charges against anyone who pushed false information on the FISC, to the FBI, to Congress, etc.

  5. More DiGenova:

    Some interesting additional tidbits form the Howie Carr interview:

    1. Says Jensen -- USA for EDMO -- is a former FBI agent. I'm guessing that may have had something to do with Barr's choice of him to review the Flynn prosecution -- he would understand internal workings of the agency that someone who had not been an gent would not know. which would be useful in avoiding the usual snow job FBI leadership would try to pull.

    2. DiGenova specifically characterized some of the exculpatory evidence Jensen turned over Friday, and which should be made public today or tomorrow. He states unequivocally that Jensen has turned over the hand written notes of James Baker, Comey's GC at FBI, and those notes clearly indicate the purpose of the what they were doing with Flynn was "framing" him.

    AS bad as that sounds for the coup plotters, there is an additional fact that makes even more significant: DiGenova reiterated his previous statement that James Baker is a COOPERATING WITNESS for Durham's investigation!

    That means he is NOT going to be testifying that his hand written notes of his meetings with the FBI people involved in framing Flynn meant something else. He will corroborate, not deny, the implication of the contemporaneous notes HE TOOK.

    The implication: everyone who was a coup plotter above, besides, and beneath Baker who had direct contact with him about this stuff is likely dead meat. He sang to save his ass.

    He also claims there is a mole inside current FBI leadership that leaked the fact that Boente and Ray did everything they could to prevent Baker's notes from being handed over to Flynn's attorney.

    Sounds like another potential Obstruction charge to me.
