U.S. Attorney John Durham will soon interview former CIA Director John Brennan, another sign that the investigation of the Trump-Russia investigators is ready to wrap up by the end of the summer.
Durham, the federal prosecutor from Connecticut appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Crossfire Hurricane inquiry and to scrutinize the conduct of the law enforcement leaders and intelligence officials involved in it, has asked to interview Brennan, according to "people familiar with the request" cited by NBC News, and the former top spy and vociferous Trump critic has reportedly agreed to the sit-down. The same report cites sources who suggest Durham's inquiry may be nearing the finish line.
Brennan has acknowledged that he is in the "crosshairs" of the criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation led by Durham. He recently claimed, and the White House acknowledged, that he asked the CIA for his official records, including his personal notes and any classified CIA documents that he had signed to help him write his upcoming memoir, but the agency denied his request.
Last year, the New York Times reported that Durham asked for Brennan's electronic communications, phone records, and other documents from the CIA, something NBC News confirmed on Wednesday.
The NBC News report also cited sources who claimed Durham has not interviewed Comey or McCabe, and another source claimed that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has been told by Durham that he will not be interviewed. (?)
So let me guess....They will release the report on Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend and the media will totally embargo the story. But all roads lead directly and indirectly to Obama - I haven't seen his invitation to talk to Durham - nor, Rice, Biden, Clinton.
Pelosi is the perfect example of a lecture my grandmother gave me when I smugly suggested that clever and smart meant the same thing. Pelosi retains the remnants of a spry political skill at riposte but understands nothing of actual governance as a duty to serve the American people faithfully in defending the Constitution and our exceptional way of life. She has become a vile hag haunting the halls of our Capitol in her serene ignorance of how hackneyed her gibberish has become.
[NYPOST] New York Rep. Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez Dem Congressgirl from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details. She was the inventor of the Green New Deal, though she doesn't talk about it much anymore... may be denied a speaking slot at the Democratic National Convention this month, according to a report.Although the 30-year-old Democratic socialist is one of the most recognizable new leaders in the party, centrists are opposed to giving her time to speak.
"I think [Vermont Sen.] Bernie [Sanders] and [Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth] Warren will speak, and they’ll represent the progressive wing of the party very ably," former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell told Politico.
Rendell, a longtime friend of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'... , said it would be unfair to highlight Ocasio-Cortez, who took office last year after a shocking primary win.
"If you picked AOC, why wouldn’t you pick Katie Bat Girl Porter ...Dem law professor, attorney and politician serving as the U.S. Representative for Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,'s 45th congressional district (Orange County) since 2019. Katie takes her job and her personal dignity so seriously she once showed up for a committee hearing dressed as Batman.... or why wouldn’t you pick Madeleine Dean or Mary Gay Scanlon?" Rendell said, referring to other recently elected congresswomen.
A source close to Democratic convention planning told The Post that more information about the speakers list will be released next week.
"What is currently confirmed are the Obamas will be involved, the VP nominee Wednesday, Biden on Thursday and a tribute to John Lewis," the person said.
Tell someone that it is okay to "punch a fascist" then you discover that they will come to believe that anybody they don't like can should be punched. The people of Pakistan woke up one day and discovered that the Taliban had mutated from expendable puppets to rabid animals in the same manner.
Wheeler should be asking the criminal to turn themselves in. Wheeler should be arresting the criminals and prosecuting them. They will stay home because you ask you Dumba$$ unless of course, you are their leader.
[IRNA] In a twitter post on Friday, he said when the US policies regarding Iran remains the same, there will be no difference for John Bolton, Brian Hook or Elliott Abrams.
The issue is that American officials are trying things too big for their mouths, he said.
In the message, he wrote "No difference between John Bolton, Brian Hook or Elliott Abrams; when it comes to the US #Iran policy, American officials have been bitten off more than they could chew. Same applies to Mike Pompeo, Donald Trump AND their successors."
The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday announced that Hook will be replaced with Elliott Abrams who is currently serving as the US envoy for Venezuela affairs.
He said once Hook's tenure terminates, Abrams will take charge of Iran's affairs as well.
Hook who was appointed to the post two years ago has failed to the reach the US goals of imposing ultimate pressure on Iran.
Observers wonder what Abrams as a neo-conservative diplomat who has bitterly failed in leading the US-engineered cou deta [sic] in Venezuela to victory and played a role in other US scandalous failures as well could accomplish, given the fact that there is only one week ahead before the US takes its proposal of extending Iran's arms embargo to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), a plan which is already doomed to fail. [Abrams: Another deep-stater.]
