That's an idea that Shipwreckedcrew came up with. I was toying with the idea of writing something suggesting that the recent bombshell declassifications were tied to the coming election, but I couldn't think of the right way to put it. SWC found that way:
I'm guessing -- and its all been speculation -- that the releases the past 3 days are an alternative to a "Durham Report." One guts the Flynn case, and another is huge new on the Page investigation. This is for electorate consumption.
They also suggest that Durham is probably wanting more time, and this is the alternative disclosure vehicle. Remember that Trump gave Barr ultimate DeClass authority, so the FBI cannot block DeClass any longer. So this stuff is coming out because Barr wants it out.
This makes sense to me. Barr and Durham surely understand that this investigation is one that the nation has a huge stake in. For the public to want to know what is going on is entirely reasonable, no matter what the legal difficulties with releasing information may be. You can't write a report that's just a few pages long, and once you start writing you're likely to also raise more questions in the minds of your readers. Of course, that's also true about declassifications, but a report is viewed as something that's supposed to be somehow complete in itself. Narrowly targeted declassifications may be a good alternative--one that shows that you're doing something, making progress, but doesn't give too much away.
