Ex-DOJ Officials Attack Barr as DNI Unmasks Flynn Unmaskers

Obama and his defenders aim to deflect attention away from his involvement in Crossfire Hurricane.

A mere three days after Barack Obama’s conveniently leaked private phone call — in which he blasted Attorney General William Barr’s decision to drop the case against Gen. Michael Flynn as a risk to the “Rule of Law” — comes a letter signed by nearly 2,000 former Justice Department officials sent to Congress calling for Barr’s resignation and censure.

The letter, echoing Obama’s erroneous claim that no one charged with perjury has ever gotten off scot-free, decried Barr’s “unprecedented” decision. They assert, “If any of us, or anyone reading this statement who is not a friend of the President, were to lie to federal investigators in the course of a properly predicated counterintelligence investigation, and admit we did so under oath, we would be prosecuted for it.”

These ex-DOJ officials assert as if it were an unmitigated fact that the counterintelligence investigation run by Obama’s DOJ was “properly predicated.” Yet recently released DOJ documents show that the investigation was anything but “properly predicated,” which is the central issue at the heart of Barr’s decision. No wonder Obama and this army of 2,000 ex-DOJ officials are attempting to obfuscate and attack Barr.

Who are these 2,000 former DOJ officials, and how were they so quickly organized into sending this letter? It’s clear this is an orchestrated action ultimately aimed at defending Obama. The best defense is a good offense. Obama and his lackeys are targeting Barr in an attempt to create the false narrative that he is acting corruptly in support of President Donald Trump, and therefore any of his actions taken in uncovering the deep-state plot to undermine Trump’s presidency should be rejected as illegitimate. The real objective is to lay the groundwork for defending against any possible DOJ criminal indictments against Obama era officials by U.S. Attorney John Durham.

It’s important to note that Durham’s criminal probe into the origins of the collusion hoax has only grown in scope and now is said to be going “full throttle,” as a third U.S. attorney has recently been added to the case.

Meanwhile, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell is unmasking the unmaskers of Flynn. He recently sent to the DOJ a declassified list of the Obama administration officials who were responsible for the unmasking — a significant development that may help the DOJ get to the bottom of who leaked about Flynn to the media. As Flynn attorney Sidney Powell notes, “The leak of the Kislyak transcript is a felony that should be prosecuted to the max, including a conspiracy charge for all those who decided to make it happen as part of the setup and framing of General Flynn.”

Furthermore, Barr noted last week that from what he’s seen of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation, it “did not have a basis for a counterintelligence investigation against Flynn at that stage, based on a perfectly legitimate and appropriate call he made as a member of the transition.” So, in short, the battle lines are reforming as the links connecting those responsible for orchestrating the Russia-collusion hoax appear to lead all the way to the top.
