The Morning Rant | Main | Update: Is Clinesmith Cooperating and Giving Information Against Higher-Ups?
August 14, 2020

Barr: There Will be "A Development" In the Russia Hoax Investigation, But Nothing "Earth-Shattering"
Yup: Clinesmith to Plead Guilty to Falsifying Record

The smart money was always on these guys chickening out and only indicting Clinesmith, a low-level employee caught actually altering evidence. Maybe McCabe, too, if we're lucky.

That seems to be where they're going. Mistakes were made, improper training, blame "the system" because the system can't get fired and can't go to jail.

They have James Comey as an emergency scapegoat if the small fish aren't enough.


#Durham AG Barr promised developments as early as today in a Fox interview where he explained the probe's two core objectives: "...the American people need to know what actually happened. We need to get through the story of what happened in 2016 and 17. That will be done...

The second aspect of this is - if people cross the line. If people involved in that activity violated the criminal law, they will be charged." Barr told Sean Hannity there was some delay with COVID but he is "satisfied with the progress" + "there are going to be significant developments before the election but we're not doing this on election schedule...We're not going to do anything inappropriate before the election, but we're not being dictated to by this schedule.

What's dictating the timing of this are developments in the case + there will be developments. Tomorrow there will be a development in the case. You know it's not earth shattering development but it is an indication that things are moving along at the proper pace as dictated by the facts in this investigation."

Update: Yup: Clinesmith.

Little fish and blaming "the system."

The more power, the more insulation.

Update: Paul Sperry says that sources tell him that Andrew McCabe may face criminal charges:
