Barr Elevates John Durham to Special Counsel, Instructing Him to Continue Investigating the Russiagate Op Even Under Another President

Normally, this would mean that Biden would have political difficulty firing Durham, as Trump was warned he would have if he fired Mueller.

You can fire special counsels. The conventional wisdom is that you'd face too much political backlash if you did, though.

But I think we all know that the leftwing propaganda media is going to start demanding that Durham be fired, giving cover to a new Saturday Night Massacre.


Update: Durham was appointed special counsel, without publicity, on October 19th.

Relatedly: A commenter said Barr had shot down any notion of election fraud.

That's not exactly true. He actually said that as far as one of the several types of election fraud under discussion -- that of a computer program systematically changing Trump votes to Biden -- they'd found no substantiation of that.

He did say that they had not found evidence of fraud big enough to swing the election.


Which is, yes, unhelpful. And also bullshit.

(Corrected: Barr did say more than I first thought he did.)

Jenna Ellis fired back at Barr:

Via Tami.
