A special counsel creates a new, temporary office to run an investigation.
That's not what Durham is going to be doing.
Horowitz only has authority to investigate *inside* the DOJ & it's agencies like the FBI.
He can't investigate the CIA, St. Dept or non-gov't actors like Fusion GPS.
Horowitz can't just show up at the St. Dept. and ask to see records.
Fusion GPS & Crowdstrike aren't gov't agencies.
A lot of bullshit is gonna be blown up when people see the dates.
I'm going to be continually pointing that out for no particular reason whatsoever.
Including one idiot who tweeted today "Huber = just another Sessions hoax".
NOW that the Mueller SC didn't give them the results they thought they were gonna get...
A job he wasn't eligible for?
I was laughing my ass off.
"Well yes sir, Mr. Attorney General sir! I'll drop everything else I'm doing & get right on this!"
Of course they didn't.
Guess who would've been directly involved in that? There's only 3 people can sign off on those: the AG, The DAG and the...FBI Director.
To believe Trump blew both is AG/DAG picks after coming into office knowing he was being spied on is to believe Trump is an utter moron.
A large part of that plan involves cover stories to keep his enemies out of the way.
We found this out in January when @themarketswork got a copy of the transcript.
There are people out there who really think James Comey is not under any kind of investigation at all, because if he was, the DOJ would *ANNOUNCE* that he was.
But that's not how the DOJ operates when it starts a criminal investigation of a person.
What do the people saying this nonsense base it on?
Even now, this Monday, Barr makes it sound like Durham is just being handed a job he's actually been doing for 'weeks'.
A lot of stuff has been held back as people maintained a holding pattern waiting for the Mueller SC to wrap it up.
Then Rosenstein had to depart the DOJ.
NOW it's 'go' time at last.
Trump can also now do the declassification he's vowed to do anytime he wants.
Now the fun really starts.
