You know what? If this keeps up I WILL join AntiFA. But I digress –

Top House Democrats called for Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham for their investigation of the Trump-Russia investigators one day after Senate Democrats made the same request.

“We write to ask that you open an emergency investigation into whether” Barr, Durham, and other Justice Department political appointees “are following DOJ’s longstanding policy to avoid taking official actions or other steps that could improperly influence the upcoming presidential election,” the Friday letter from the Democratic leaders said. “We also request that you evaluate the authority and scope under which” Durham “is operating” because Barr “has only provided vague and shifting statements about the purpose and scope of the investigation.”

Barr recently denied that he is being pressured by President Trump in his handling of Durham’s inquiry and claimed that any actions taken won’t affect the 2020 election. Barr has stressed that the Durham review will abide by Justice Department guidelines and has repeatedly said that despite urging from Trump, former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden, who is now the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, are not under criminal investigation.

The six-page Friday letter, signed by Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York, Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff of California, Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, and House Administration Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren, followed a Thursday letter led by Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris along with nine other Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee urging Horowitz to audit the investigation by Barr and Durham into the origins of the Trump-Russia inquiry and the conduct of law enforcement and intelligence officials during that investigation.

So what do we have here? We had the Mueller investigation spying on Trump. We have Durham now reviewing the FBI and the Mueller investigation. And NOW we have a request from the Democrats for the DoJ to investigate the Durham probe. Can there be any bigger circle jerk on the taxpayers dime?

That’s why I am saying I might join AntiFA. Maybe we do need a revolution to clear the cobwebs AND the swamp that is DC. Just not the socialist kind, more a return to a strict constructionist mind frame for what is really in the document. No Fed regulators, ditch the FBI, any State that can’t balance their budget 4 years out of 5 become territory till they do, etc.

Here is a link to the letter. Barr has iterated the matter of delicacy this close to the election.

Time to water that Tree me thinks.

    3 – In other news MI judges says Dems will have 14 days after election day to steal election with mail-in ballots. Between MI today and PA yesterday… Trump going to need a blow-out.

    1 – I posted elsewhere yesterday for the 100th time…the fact Wray still has his job is a horrible reflection on president Trump, should have been gone 3mo after hired, even if one factors in all the politics and backstabbing senate he should have been gone a week or so after Mule’s rpt. That he’s still employed (among dozen other things) telegraphs to me he’s not in control. Wray can not be head of the fbi in the aftermath of the election.

    Hopefully NFL is taking notes …

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/09/18/socially-distanced-german-soccer-team-gets-thrashed-37-0/

    A German soccer team has been thrashed 37-0 because its players insisted on observing rules about ‘social distancing.’

    The defeated amateur football team SG Ripdorf/Molzen II were worried that their opponents SV Holdenstedt II had been exposed in a previous fixture to a player who had tested positive for Chinese coronavirus.

    So, to protect themselves from this deadly threat SG Ripdorf/Molzen II decided to field only seven players (the minimum required to avoid a fine for forfeiting the game). The players then failed to participate in the game – allowing their opponents to walk all over them

    Should Trump quickly push the nomination of Barrett ahead, it would put the Democrats it would put the Dems into an interesting conundrum, regardless if the vote is before the election or not. I don’t think they could resist tearing into a woman nominee just as they did with Kavenaugh and the optics of that would not be good.

    Commenter at Instapundit:

    “My guess is that she was in hospice for weeks, if not months and they covered it up to leave no time for a replacement.
    All of the justices on the court likely knew, and it did not leak. So, it is possible there was a coordinated effort to deny Trump another pick. We will have to see when the details come out.”

    If the Dims and BLM/AntiFA riot, yes I repeat myself, they seal their fate. The polls are already cratering about BLM. Fact they are a point lower than before the Floyd incident happened. — https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?geo=US&q=%2Fm%2F012hdhkj — Compare May 24th, the time frame of Floyd’s death to today.

    Strategm would seem to dictate that Trump would immediately tender her replacement to the Senate knowing full well the outlying result. The Left can’t contain themselves and Trump is betting he can. The screeching and hollering is good for his brand and bad for theirs.

    Here is the response they received from Inspector Sean McGinty to a business owner:

    As far as a long-term plan I don’t have one. I have lost 30% of my street officers since the end of May. Budget cuts from COVID-19 and an additional 1.5 million from the council in August we have let go 17 CSO’s and cancelled a recruit class of 29. A potential Cadet class slated for January of 2021 was also eliminated. I takes about a year to get a police Officer onto the streets with hiring, backgrounds and field training so reinforcements aren’t coming anytime soon. We are doing everything we can with what we have. I hate to see great businesses like yours and the rest of your corridor being victimized and feeling unsafe. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

But in keeping with the thread op…. first we gotta get the nominees’s fbi file, then we gotta investigate the fbi’s investigation, then of course D’s gotta demand their own, then we need an investigation into that investigation. bla bla bla.

    47 – Criminal getting streets named after them…lovely (I’d say it’s a first but it’s not), if he had some how lived probably be appointed mayor.

    Tactical considerations, via Legal Insurrection blog:

    “Kamala is on the Senate Judiciary Committee. If Trump nominates someone then she’s off the campaign trail for the rest of the election. Also, remembering her performance, re: Kavanaugh, the normals will be reminded of her idiocy. I see no downside.”

    Though, to be fair, Kama has not spent much time on the campaign trail thus far.
