Now comes the part that Hillary Clinton, her accomplices – and Democrats who have spent over two years trying to take down President Trump – truly fear.

Excerpted from Adam Goldman, Charlie Savage and Michael S. Schmidt’s article for the New York Timers, via – and please pay special attention to the part I’ve put in bold print:

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William P. Barr has assigned the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut to examine the origins of the Russia investigation, according to two people familiar with the matter, a move that President Trump has long called for but that could anger law enforcement officials who insist that scrutiny of the Trump campaign was lawful.

John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, has a history of serving as a special prosecutor investigating potential wrongdoing among national security officials, including the F.B.I.’s ties to a crime boss in Boston and accusations of C.I.A. abuses of detainees.

His inquiry is the third known investigation focused on the opening of an F.B.I. counterintelligence investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign into possible ties between Russia’s election interference and Trump associates.

Am I remembering correctly, or wasn’t this fair game when the shoe was on the other foot and it was deep-state people like james comey and andrew mccabe and peter strzok and lisa page, and john brennan and james clapper – then, ultimately, comey’s pal robert mueller and his all-Democrat/no-Republican staff investigating Donald Trump – doing the investigating?

And – allow me to borrow a page from the Democrat playbook of the past two years –  if they have nothing to hide, why would they object to this investigation taking place?

And now a question:  does anyone seriously believe that, after over two years turned up no collusion and no viable legal case for obstruction against President Trump, this investigation will do the same?

A reminder:  it is an investigation of how the Steele dossier, which was…

…opposition research not neutral research…

…bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign…

…facilitated by Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS…

…with the payments funneled through the Clinton-hired Perkins Coie law firm…

…and conducted by Christopher Steele, a Trump-hating British national who almost excusively used Russian sources to gather information he himself said was unverified…

…was used to get the FISA warrants, which were the basis of the two year Trump witch hunt.

Little wonder that the deep-state facilitators of this attempted overthrow of an elected President (what would you call it) are worried.  How could they not be?

So let’s see where this, and the other investigations Clinton & Co. are dreading, will take us.

Personally, my interest – and, I hope, yours – is to get at the truth, wherever it falls.  But, somehow, I have a feeling that truth is just about the last thing some of the players in this show, would ever want.

I wish John H. Durham every success in his efforts.
