Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

FOX News Channel host Maria Bartiromo said that her sources are now saying that they no longer expect U.S. Attorney John Durham to release a report on possible wrongdoing in the intelligence community during the 2016 election before the 2020 election.

I have a scoop for Maria. IT WAS ALWAYS POLITICAL. Everyone knows this was a fishing expedition by Barr and was intended to turn up dirt on Democrats prior to the election. I'm guessing Durham hasn't found much of anything or else Barr and Trump would be falling over themselves to get it out the door.

It was political from the onset. AG Barr implied as much in his early comments about it.

I suspect the reason for the delay might be more because it is not the bombshell the Republicans thought it would be, and they thought releasing it this close to the election would do more damage to themselves than their intended target.

That's a safe bet.

"She claims her sources say that "it is now too close to the election and could be seen as politically motivated.""

Probably.

There's also the idea that AG Barr isn't quite as sure he's on the winning side that he was a little while ago, and is trying to leave some waterhole unpoisoned just in case.

Hoo, boy, has that ship sailed!

Prolly too late for that.

AG Barr not only has burned the bridges behind him, he also salted the soil.

Oddly enough, this is exactly the reason to rush a new Supreme Court justice!

If today's Republicans didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

Speaking of which, what's taking so long? She was nominated two days ago. How long does fitting some robes and scheduling a photographer take?

Looks like Jeff J will have to keep up his vigil a little while longer.

You know if there was a hint of anything wrong in the findings they would be running the chiron 24/7/365. I am surprised given AG Coverups propensity for fiction in his dealings he has not issued a "summary report" saying Hunter Biden killed the Lindberg baby and Joe covered it up.

I'm glad this is solved. About time.

Fishpaw? Where's Fishpaw? He must be still staring at a bottle of Jack after Google alerts notified him of Durham and it turned out to be this news. I bet his wife worries while he sits there muttering to himself. ' Hillary and Obama spied on Trump. Durham will get them...he will...I know it...'

Poor JeffJ. He was so sure this would nail Obama once and for all. It only helped Jeff to hoist himself onto his petard.

Durham found less than nothing, not even enough to misstate the findings and cast false doubts on people the way Comey did to HRC in 2016. So rather than going to the microphones and admitting that he and Barr have been travelling the world on the taxpayer (not Drumpf) dime on a fruitless political witch hunt, by saying he's holding his report until after the election, the Trumpanzees can still claim breathlessly that VP Biden, Hunter, and the Obama Administration are under DOJ investigation and ooooh boy are they in trouble after Dotard is reelected. Then Durham can quietly close this BS "investigation" of the oranges with as little fanfare as possible.

More fraud waste and abuse by Republicans.

Will the taxpayer get a refund??

Nope.

They are STILL looking for Obama's Waterloo and you won't find them here they will NEVER come back to apologize or admit they were wrong.

You will probably find them near your local polling booth soon trying to intimidate you and prevent you from voting. It's their only hope now.

They either (1) don't need it because Trump has a winning cheating strategy; or (2) have decided to drop it after the election to sway public opinion or sow distrust in an incoming Biden administration.

"Gosh, they must be finding TONS of horribly damaging evidence. That must be why this investigation into the ORINJES of the Russia investigation is taking so long. Crooked Hillary is definitely going to be locked up this time. Benghazi!"

If they don't release it, they can say whatever they want about what MIGHT be in it and no one will know the wiser.

That's the strategy here when the actual report comes up empty.
