No Durham Findings Before the Election

AG Barr says the probe into the Russia hoax’s origin won’t come out by November.

On Friday, President Donald Trump and Republicans received the bad but sadly predictable news that U.S. Attorney John Durham would not release the findings of his criminal investigation into the origins of the Russia-collusion hoax until after the election in November. So much for timing.

Trump learned of Attorney General William Barr’s reported announcement while live on Rush Limbaugh’s radio program. He frustratedly responded, “If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed. I think it’s a terrible thing. And I’ll say it to [Barr’s] face. It’s a disgrace. It’s an embarrassment.” Trump then hit the proverbial nail on the head, arguing, “See, this is what I mean with the Republicans. They don’t play the tough game.”

Like so many Americans, Trump is fed up with what he sees as the intentional dragging out of an investigation into the deep-state actions of Barack Obama’s administration. Team Obama first sought to prevent Trump’s election and subsequently engaged in an attempted coup against a legitimate and duly elected president.

Trump’s criticism of Barr and Durham is understandable, as Trump and the American people deserve to see what evidence Durham has collected before the election. This is not a call to politicize the Justice Department, as Democrats and much of the mainstream media have disingenuously claimed. Rather it’s a call for the truth to be revealed about the biggest political scandal in U.S. history. It’s a call for transparency so voters can be fully informed.

Beyond that, there’s the legitimate concern that if Trump fails in his reelection bid, Joe Biden and company will terminate the Durham investigation and either suppress or spin its most damning findings. At the same time, Biden and Democrats will work to affirm Hillary Clinton’s dubious and false narrative — which she trotted out yet again last week — that Trump’s 2016 victory “was not on the level.” Of course, Hillary is fighting to prevent the full exposure of just how corruptly she acted in creating the entire Russia collusion hoax — all in a devious effort to distract attention from her own blatant and illegal email scandal. Yet she has the gall to complain, “We still don’t know what really happened.” Without Durham’s full report, that’s more true than she intended.
