“Lisa Monaco signals support for continuing Durham investigation”

President Biden‘s nominee for deputy attorney general Lisa Monaco on Tuesday signaled her support for Special Counsel John Durham to continue his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

During her confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday, Monaco committed to providing Durham the necessary resources to continue his probe, which began in the spring of 2019.

“Mr. Durham has been allowed to stay on, and I have no reason to think that’s wrong,” Monaco said. “As deputy attorney general, it will be my job to make sure he has the resources and I will be committed to doing that.”

Monaco’s response comes after Biden’s nominee for attorney general Judge Merrick Garland also said he saw “no reason” why Durham should not be left in place to complete his investigation.” Foxnews

Comment: IMO this is really bad news for the Bidonians. Both Garland and Monaco have now committed to continuing the Durham investigation, providing it with resources and not interfering with it before completion.

Durham’s grand jury is up in Connecticut, not down here in the DC Democrat fortress. I would be willing to bet that he has been careful about jury selection. That would be the case here in the Eastern District of Virginia.

From having served on several federal and state grand juries I can state unequivocally that the the jury itself or the prosecutor can take the investigation wherever they want to go.

A question asked at the end of a jury’s service is “Is there anything else that you think should be investigated?”

Dum da dum dum! pl

    That’s the right answer – for her.
    That means that she knows that NOTHING is going to come out.
    Why not support a non-investigation?
    Durham’s so-called “investigators” are FBI agents who are not exactly going to do much digging into their own agency – careers and pensions to protect.
    I have no doubt that Durham is on a beach somewhere waiting for things to calm down before he takes his partnership in a major swamp law firm.

      That is a bit much. Why not just shoot yourself in despair to avoid having to sit through all this awfulness? Reminds of a sign I saw once in an FFL mess. “Alcool tue lentement mais ca ne me fait rien. Je ne suis pas presse.” (alcohol kills slowly , but that is nothing to me. I am not in a hurry) I, too, am not in a hurry.

      • TV says:

        First, I’m not shooting myself over the garbage people in the swamp.
        Second, after the last 4 years (and probably more like 16-20 years), I’m thoroughly convinced of the total venality and dishonesty of anyone associated with the US government – and their underwhelming incompetence.
        A minority is outright corrupt and the rest look away.

          Maybe you should start your own blog entitled something like “The Gates of Hell.”

          A blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then…sometimes justice is done. Other times someone gets busted for something unrelated, and starts playing “let’s make a deal.” I’m generally pretty cynical, however, when folks start playing “let’s make a deal,” dirty deeds come to light. Some dirty deeds are hard to sweep under the rug.

          On the other side, a pessimist is either constantly being proven right, or being pleasantly surprised.

    Recent stories about a key figure flip in Russiagate, while unnamed , was accompanied with a photo of the smirking Peter Strozk. Could this be his revenge after learning former lover Lisa Page flipped first, and he was fingered to be taken down?

    Surely this speculation can rank right up there with who in the British royal family wondered about the color of Archie’s eyes, or whether the child would look like Diana’s horse master?

    • Dan says:

      Maybe others figured this out sooner, but to me it looks like it was a cia/British intel operation that was adopted by the democrats, but the fbi’s role beyond comey/McCabe was more about being manipulated and suckered into starting an investigation. Declassified stuff other day showed strzok trying to fight hysterical media characterizations and hype. And the way someone released the strzok/page texts early on now makes me think someone was trying to frame them as the center of the story.

      • Mal says:

        Dan, it’s been an MI6 operation since the day they planted Obama in the White House. Lots of manipulation, lots of suckering, you are familiar with how the Brit media (intel control) works?……….and yes, me being Irish makes me biased, not stupid.

        Just wait till somewhere down the road, wee Archie becomes the first Democrat Elected King of the USA. Ouch!

  3. Jose says:

    Respectfully, I also believe nothing is going to come out of this.

    The Department of Injustice is like the Priests that covered up the pedophiles for the Greater Good of the Church, look where that led.

    On another blog, someone suggested firing the entire FBI and using the US Marshall in their place…lol

    Disturbing reports about Wisconsin election departments and state election law subversion take-over by Zuckerberg funded group requires further investigation too:

    Back in August, Barr had said there would be “significant developments in the probe before the election” and that his office would have no problem releasing a report prior to the vote.

    By September, one of Durham’s top aides quit reportedly because she didn’t like the political pressure Barr had put on the special investigation team to release their report prior to election day.

    So far they got one FBI lawyer on a guilty plea for altering an email used in a FISA application against Carter Page.

    • Dan says:

      And fbi lawyer clinesmith’s role was really investigated and revealed by IG horowitz’s investigation, so Durham can’t claim that one either. I’ve seen no evidence any investigation is even taking place.

      It’s possible Durham and his team have been intimidated and deterred from pursuing anything serious – much personal risk and not much personal gain by defending or aligning with trump. Also possible some just wanted to slow it all down and deny Trump any political victory or vindication, wait until after he’s gone to reveal anything.

      Personally I’m over it. Whatever they couldn’t accomplish while Trump was in office certainly became more difficult once the perps resumed control. They’re not letting a good soldiers like adam schiff or politicized cia get touched, at best we’ll get a few more patsies who don’t have sufficient political connections.

    • Deap says:

      Covid-covid-covid – remember Barr expressed great frustration not being able to get witnesses to appear to testify…because of covid-covid-covid. One more covid advantage: Democrats.

      Covid for the Democrats was the Shmoo creature from the Lil Abner comic strip. Whatever Democrats needed before the election, the Covid Shmoo was ready to hatch it out for them.

  6. Noel S. Cowling says:

    Could Biden’s nominations be a means of taking attention off of his son?

    • Pat Lang says:

      Noel S. Cowling

      I suppose anything is possible but unless you, like TV, a wealthy man living in retirement in the country, believe that all, all, is illusion then such a position makes no sense and does not belong here. Despair is a mortal sin and I do not run a Despair “shop” here.

  7. Fred says:

    I wonder what part of Monaco’s participation in the spying on Trump is going to come out (that hasn’t already)?

    It’s unlikely to have much effect on the cryogenic experiment currently installed in the White House.

    Wasn’t Lisa Monaco associated with the Kavanaugh “lynching” advising Christine Blasey Ford on her legal & media strategy? She was photographed at the Senate hearing with the Blasey team bench.

    What is taking Durham so long to indict the perjurers Rosenstein, Sally Yates and whoever signed the fraudulent FISA application on Carter Page? There’s no “I didn’t know what I was signing” excuse when putting your signature on an affidavit under penalty of perjury. The fact that he hasn’t indicted yet the most simple slam dunk crime of known perjury is mighty suspicious of what the intent of his “investigation” actually is. Maybe this goes the way of Comey’s investigation of Hillary with the perjurers labeled “extremely careless” in rubber-stamping “career officials”?

    When has the Swamp ever taken another card-carrying Swamp member to task? Are there any examples?
