Because nobody did anything wrong. Yes, you read that right. It's not that they've given up trying to find out who showed David Ignatius Top Secret information (a tech cut)--they know that. Believe me, they do. No, it's that it's OK to do that when the person targeted is President Trump's National Security Adviser:
In one inquiry, code-named Operation Echo, investigators opened a leak case into a Washington Post column about phone calls in late 2016 between Sergey I. Kislyak, the former Russian ambassador to the United States, and Michael T. Flynn, then Mr. Trump’s incoming national security adviser. The leak was one of several matters under scrutiny by John H. Durham, the special counsel investigating the officials who opened the Russia investigation.
Prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington investigated whether the disclosures came from former Obama administration officials who had access to sensitive information about the phone calls, according to two people familiar with the investigation. The investigators ultimately found no wrongdoing, one of the people said.
Prosecutors in Washington also recommended that the office close its investigation into Walid Phares, a former Trump campaign adviser suspected of secretly working on behalf of the Egyptian government in the months before Mr. Trump took office to influence the incoming administration.
Michael R. Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney in Washington, signed off on closing both of the cases on prosecutors’ recommendations, according to a person familiar with the investigations. A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment.
I can't wait for the coming Durham indictments. But don't kid yourself--I'm no longer kidding myself. This is about Bluto Barr's DoJ. The hypocrisy in all this is enough to take your breath away.
UPDATE: You wanna see hypocrisy? Actually, the depravity that Tucker reveals in his monologue goes far beyond mere hypocrisy:
