I’ve linked to a Fox News post that quotes an “insider” as saying that Durham would not be switching to a criminal investigation if he did not already have targets that will definitely be indicted on criminal charges. And he said that there must already be some cooperating witnesses to ensure that these indictment will be certain.
The implication is that this “insider” is former or current Justice Department personnel who speaks from experience. Sounds reasonable. Read it and see what you think. Apparently some of the coup have already been contacted that they will be interviewed. Brennan was one of those.
Schiff and Nadler are outraged that the Justice Department isn’t restricted to only Republican targets. This is my favorite quote:
“The Department of Justice under AG Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a joint statement after learning Durham’s probe had become a criminal inquiry. “If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.”
Oh, the irony.
