A 'Deep State' Turning Point?

Several reports in the anti-Trump media seem to suggest nervousness about the probe being led by U.S. Attorney John Durham.

I know we’ve all been disappointed with investigations to expose the Deep State because they always seem to go nowhere. So I hesitate to even bring this up, but…

Several reports have appeared recently in the anti-Trump media that seem to suggest nervousness about the probe being led by U.S. Attorney John Durham. As you know, Durham was appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion hoax in the 2016 elections.

The stories indicate that people at the CIA have lawyered up. Other reports suggest that Durham “found something” that led him to request additional resources for his investigation. And there are reports that former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper are now under scrutiny.

That sounds encouraging. But as I wrote before, unless Durham’s report is concluded in the next eight to 10 months, we may never know the results if the left succeeds in lying its way back into the White House.

Meanwhile, my expectations for the Justice Department inspector general’s report are fading fast. That report is about potential Deep State abuse of the FISA court to enable wiretapping of the Trump campaign. Every couple of weeks we’re told that the report is ready to be released, but then it gets delayed.

The delays are reportedly due to redactions to protect national security. At this point, I suspect they are trying to strip the report of anything that could expose the Deep State’s abuse of power.

It seems Sen. Charles Grassley agrees. Monday night Grassley tweeted his concerns that the Deep State might be trying to “deep six” the FISA abuse report.
