Joe Biden is hoping that his attorney general will be able to clean up Obama’s dirty work.
There’s already a plan in motion.
Barack Obama breathed a huge sigh of relief because this investigation is doomed.
During the 2016 election, the FBI under the Obama administration used evidence bought and paid for by Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton as justification to spy on the Trump campaign.
The evidence that Trump was in league with the Russians was extremely faulty, however, the FBI lied to the Justice Department in order to get warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign.
The Durham investigation is a special counsel looking into the allegations of criminal wrongdoing done by the Obama administration.
Yet President Joe Biden’s pick for attorney general, Merrick Garland, doesn’t see any need for the Durham investigation to continue.
Sen. Chuck Grassley asked that Merrick Garland continue to support Durham’s investigation and keep the Biden White House from meddling with the inquiry into Hunter Biden.
“With respect to special counsel Durham’s investigation, I expect that he will be allowed to complete his investigation,” the Republican senator said. “If confirmed, will you commit to providing special counsel Durham with the staff, resources, funds, and time needed to thoroughly complete the investigation?”
“So senator, I don’t have any information about the investigation as I sit here today, and another one of the very first things I’m going to have to do is speak with Mr. Durham and figure out how his investigation is going,” the judge replied. “I understand that he has been permitted to remain in his position, and sitting here today, I have no reason to think that that was not the correct decision.”
Grassley asked Garland for clarification if he was saying that Durham would only be removed “for cause” but Garland didn’t commit to that.
“I would have to have an opportunity to talk with him,” Garland said. “I have not had that opportunity. As I said, I don’t have any reason, from what I know now, which is really very little, to make any determination on that ground. But I don’t have any reason to think that he should not remain in place.”
Garland also would not commit to releasing Durham’s full report.
“I am a great believer in transparency,” Garland said. “I would, though, have to talk with Mr. Durham and understand the nature of what he’s been doing and the nature of the report. But I am very much committed to transparency and to explaining Justice Department decision-making.”
Grassley noted that it would have been judged unacceptable for former Attorney General William Barr to halt Mueller’s investigation.
But Democrats, no matter how awful the wrongdoing, don’t seem to think that they should ever be held accountable for their actions.
