WTH?? Grassley Predicts Durham Probe Into 'Spygate' Origins Won't Be Complete Before Election

Those of us who have been waiting oh-so-patiently for someone – anyone – to be charged with sedition or FISA court fraud or abuse of power or any crimes related to the Obama-run operation to undermine Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and presidency are being disappointed…again.
You remember John Durham, the federal prosecutor Attorney General William Barr appointed to look into the origins of the ‘Russian collusion’ investigation – the same probe that became a legitimate criminal investigation late last year?
Yes, well, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be completed anytime soon – or before the November elections, if we’re to believe Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa).
That, of course, means if Democrat nominee Joe Biden manages to eke out a victory against the president, the investigation will simply die off after being shut down by the incoming regime.
And once more, the guilty parties will go free, Americans will be denied justice, and faith in ‘the system’ will collapse completely.
“Barr recently said ‘this is the closest we have ever come to an organized effort to push a president out of office ‘leads me to think Durham [won’t] report any prosecutions til after election so as not influence [the] vote. SAD SAD,” Grassley tweeted Monday.
“IF NO PROSECUTIONS TIL AFTER ELECTIONS SAD SAD //just think Flynn Mueller Impeachment/ The deep state is so deep that ppl get away w political crimes/Durham shld be producing some fruit of his labor,” he added.
In June, Barr said that he expected some “developments” in Durham’s criminal probe sometime over the summer, leading many of us watching this case to speculate that some ‘well-timed charges’ would be filed ahead of the election.
“In terms of the future of Durham’s investigation, you know, he’s pressing ahead as hard as he can,” Barr said in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“And I expect that, you know, we will have some developments hopefully before the end of the summer.”
During the same interview, Barr also said he didn’t think that Durham’s probe would extend either to former President Obama or Vice President Biden (though it’s clear, based on recent ‘developments,’ both men were heavily involved in setting Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn).
“As to President Obama and Vice President Obama, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Barr said. “Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”
In a separate interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Barr noted that the idea isn’t to indict “candidates” for the presidency or their officials – like they do in banana republics.
“You don’t indict candidates or perhaps someone that’s sufficiently close to a candidate, that it’s essentially the same, you know, within a certain number of days before an election. But you know, as I say, I don’t think any of the people whose actions are under review by Durham fall into that category.
