Amid the global panic surrounding COVID-19, much of the fighting in Washington and the culture war seems to have been forgotten. Nevertheless, the Democrats need to be held responsible for the wasteful, deceptive, and illegal events that precipitated the so-called “Russia collusion” conspiracy.
The investigation into the inception of the Russia collusion probe continues despite the outbreak. Attorney General William Barr told the Wall Street Journal last week that the probe is going to continue regardless of the outbreak. Democrats involved in the wiretapping and the illegal collection of data used to obtain warrants will not be able to use shelter in place orders as cover from subpoenas and other investigative actions.
Barr said, “There’s some confusion, but we’re trying to keep up the mission.”
He has assigned U.S. Attorney John Durham to take charge of the investigation. Durham and his team of investigators contacted Sir Andrew Wood, the former United Kingdom Ambassador to Russia, recently. Wood told the WSJ “[My] answer to an email inquiry from a member of the team about 2016 was that I had nothing to add to the public record.”
This is not the first time Durham and his investigators have tried to interview former or current British government employees on this subject. They have been trying to get in touch with Christopher Steel, the former British spy who was paid by an IT firm working for the Clintons to draft the debunked and scatological story about Trump being involved with Russian prostitutes.
Requests for an interview with Steel have all been rejected by the British government.
But Durham and his team of investigators have spoken with numerous people at the CIA. These interviews focused on individuals who were working with the National Intelligence Council at the time and on the involvement of the then NIC director, John Brennan.
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the most prominent Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, told reporters that Durham and Barr have not yet updated legislators on the progress of their investigation. Jordan said that the probe into the origins of the Russia collusion investigation is likely to continue through summer and into fall.
But this is not the only example of the Trump administration taking advantage of the distraction of the COVID-19 crisis to impose some much-needed justice in Washington. Recently, Trump announced that he was declaring war on cartels operating in the United States. These brutal criminal organizations have set up shop in many Democrat-run cities.
We haven’t forgotten the way Democrats defended MS13, the gang whose motto is “Kill, Rape, Control,” when Trump referred to them as “animals.” Dozens of articles were published portraying these brutal thugs as harmless children. Who can forget the infamous image of Nancy Pelosi hugging an MS13 gang member? Just like Antifa, there is reason to believe that deep state Democrats have used MS13 as a proxy army, allowing them to strike fear into citizens and their political opponents while police are directed to stand down.
Trump’s declaration of war came in response to three women and six children were massacred by cartels.
