As Barr Prepares Next ‘Russia’ Investigation, FBI’s Mystery Man Turns Heads

Now comes the true test of Barr’s commitment to “transparency”, as he begins to investigate the real reason behind the RussiaGate conspiracy.

Attorney General Bill Barr is currently on my television screen, hand to the temple, answering Congress’s combative questions in his signature, droll manner.

Yesterday’s testimony by Barr was similarly staged, with lawmakers growing frustrated with the AG’s unwillingness to answer several questions, specifically in regard to the Robert Mueller probe of the “RussiaGate” theory.

This has led Barr into territory he likely wishes he would have avoided, with congressional figureheads now demanding that he begin to investigate the origins of the entire “RussiaGate” conspiracy – something that will surely reflect poorly on the Barack Obama administration’s action in the run-up to the 2016 election.

One mysterious man in particular has come under increasing scrutiny in this fight, and the American people deserve answers.

The Justice Department’s internal watchdog reportedly is scrutinizing the role of an FBI informant who contacted members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, as part of a broader review of the early stages of the Russia investigation.

The New York Times reported that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is looking into informant Stefan Halper’s work during the Russia probe, as well as his work with the FBI prior to the start of that probe.

Halper, an American professor who reportedly is deeply connected with British and American intelligence agencies, has been widely reported as a confidential source for the FBI during the bureau’s original investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. That official counterintelligence operation was opened by then-senior agent Peter Strzok, who has since been fired from the bureau.

Halper’s fingerprints are all over the “RussiaGate” fable.

During the 2016 campaign, Halper contacted several members of the Trump campaign, including former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and former aide Carter Page. Page also was the subject of several Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants during the campaign — which is an issue at the heart of the IG’s investigation. Republicans, including President Trump, have alleged misconduct in the bureau and Justice Department’s handling of those FISA warrants.

At the end of the day, the American people only want transparency in their government.  After all, sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Now it will be up to Barr and the DOJ to give it to them…or face the consequences of an angry electorate.

Bloomberg Buys Last-Minute Political Ads On Behalf Of Joe Biden In Texas And Ohio

Published

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who just so happened to run the country’s most expensive failed presidential campaign in history, is now apparently blowing through a wad of cash in a last-minute attempt to buy some political ads on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The ads have been purchased in key states that are known strongholds for Republicans, Ohio and Texas. Via Daily Wire: The last-minute advertising amounts to $15 million – a fraction of what Bloomberg is spending in Florida to support Biden – and represents internal polling suggesting President Donald Trump is vulnerable in the two states, The New York Times reported. “Howard Wolfson, one of Mr. Bloomberg’s closest aides, said the former mayor had recently asked his team to run a round of polls to see whether Mr. Trump had unexpected vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the campaign’s closing weeks. Up to this point, Mr. Bloomberg’s general-election activities have focused on Florida, where he has pledged to spend $100 million supporting Mr. Biden,” the outlet reported. “The Bloomberg team conducted polling in a number of states over the weekend and came away convinced that Texas and Ohio represented its best targets — narrowly divided electoral prizes where the war for television airtime is not already cluttered with heavy advertising on either side. The team presented Mr. Bloomberg with the numbers on Monday morning and he gave the go-ahead.” “We believe that Florida will go down to the wire, and we were looking for additional opportunities to expand the map,” Wolfson told the outlet. “Texas and Ohio present the best opportunities to do that, in our view.” The big focus of the campaign ads being put out by Bloomberg will be the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ads running in Texas will…
