"Mr. Mueller’s investigation should have exposed FBI malfeasance. Instead, “the Mueller team seems to have been ready to blindly accept anything fed to it by the system,” Mr. Barr says, adding that this “is exactly what DOJ should not be.”"

Wrong. Mueller *is* the system.
"But even prior to naming Mr. Durham special counsel, Mr. Barr had come to the conclusion that he didn’t “see any sign of improper CIA activity” or “foreign government activity before July 2016,” he says. “The CIA stayed in its lane.”"

Interesting, especially the word *before*.
"Mr. Durham’s probe is now tightly focused on “the conduct of Crossfire Hurricane, the small group at the FBI that was most involved in that,” as well as “the activities of certain private actors.” (Mr. Barr doesn’t elaborate.)"

"Mr. Barr didn’t order a review of the case until Mr. Flynn petitioned to withdraw his guilty plea in January 2020. Mr. Jensen’s review then made clear that the case “was entirely bogus,” Mr. Barr says."

**entirely bogus**
"...I understand that frustration. It’s painful that the system is used against Republicans and there is an AG not willing to do the same thing against Democrats. But that is the only way we find our way back,”"

Kudos to Barr for being forthright about why he did what he did.

The most appalling aspect of Dr Jill's thesis isn't even the dreadfully poor scholarship but the insight it gives into her thinking. The thesis is littered with statements like this, pigeonholing everyone and presupposing that because people look different, they cannot connect.
Developmental learners are low IQ. The college is unfortunately forced to admit them due to policy.

For all her virtue signaling, it seems like Dr Jill has some pretty strong prejudices.
Dr Jill has obviously not been out of her basement much.

The latest Ukraine document drop is really something (h/t @15poundstogo).

For starters, Ciaramella ("Yikes") and Ambassador Pyatt ("Buckle in") were astonished that the media got wind of Biden's scheme to extort the Ukrainian president.

Someone forwarded a news article on how the Biden family were scamming the Ukraine to Ambassador Pyatt. His reaction? Blame the Russian news outlet.

PS how is it possible that Pyatt is still a **current** United States Ambassador?
Here's Pyatt spreading the lie that the Ukrainian Prosecutor (who at the time was not Shokin anyway) was responsible for thwarting Burisma case in the UK.

@ClimateAudit has written extensively on this. It was the UK authorities who dropped the ball, nothing to do with Ukraine.

Here's something interesting. The latest State Department FOIA dump includes some highly redacted stuff from Steele's 2014 Ukraine dossier. Looks like his usual anti-Russia stuff. Interestingly, he was sharing it with Winer at State "unilaterally". Who was paying him to do this?
Check out the subject line for one of Steele's Ukraine dossier reports. The guy is a one-trick pony.
Haha, even Victoria Nuland had doubts about Steele's "reporting".

ICYMI, @carterwpage is suing:


for a minimum of $75,000,000.00.

I'll discuss some highlights from Carter's complaint in this thread. The entire complaint can be found here:
The best thing a good lawyer can do, if there is an opportunity to do so, is to let your opponent make your case for you. @McAdooGordon does exactly that right off the bat. This is an extremely strong opening.
This gets right to the heart of the matter. The FBI never had probable cause to spy on @carterwpage. @McAdooGordon doesn't beat around the bush and, unlike the gaslighting media and lying Democrats, calls Steele exactly what he is: a Clinton operative.
