TWO-TIERED JUSTICE: Bartiromo says sources tell her Durham report ‘unlikely’ before election

Published

US Attorney John Duham Investigate Russia 1024x585 1

When I watched Fox News “Sunday Morning Futures” anchor Maria Bartiromo’s show I was upset. I didn’t want to write about it. I’ve spent nearly four years covering and exposing what I believe is one of the worst corruption and abuse of power issues in modern political history and now, again, another roller coaster ride.

The DOJ just doesn’t get it.

When Bartiromo said it is ‘unlikely’ that Justice Department appointed prosecutor John Durham would have a report before the Nov. 3 election I felt my heart sink. She’s someone I highly respect with great sources. I know this because I also have sources who are fearing the same situation is brewing at the Department of Justice. It doesn’t mean the DOJ’s appointed prosecutor John Durham isn’t doing his job, it just means that they waited too long to hold those former Senior Obama officials accountable.

The FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016 and the officials who helped weaponize the system against a sitting president is one of the most stunning violations of abuse of power in U.S. history.

Why should Durham care about the way it looks – when these crooks and traitors didn’t care at all about our nation or the American people?

Bartiromo said that her sources tell her “it is unlikely that we will get a John Durham interim report or any indictments before the election, now just 37 days away.”

Remember he doesn’t need to issue a report but he could move straight for indictments. Why should Durham care about the way it looks – when these crooks and traitors didn’t care at all about our nation or the American people?

“A debate has begun within the Department of Justice as the timing of John Durham’s criminal investigation conclusions,” said Bartiromo. “I’m being told by sources it is now too close to the election and could be viewed as politically motivated. However, I can confirm Durham’s investigation is significant, and it is expanding, reports Friday that Durham has expanded the scope of his investigation to include the Clinton Foundation donations while Clinton was sitting secretary of state.”

Why is Durham worried about what it will look like? These criminals that are now walking free never once worried about what their actions would do to our nation.

We have seen mountains of evidence. I’m frustrated and I know the American people are frustrated that nothing has been done for year. And now we’re in a waiting game? For what?

I absolutely believed based on what sources had said early on during my investigation. I believe in our system of justice. I have too. But now I’m left questioning it. Is Durham really doing what he said he would do?

Is DOJ Attorney General William Barr doing what he is supposed to be doing?

I certainly hope we’re not being played. I’m sick of that and believe me there’s enough of that to go around in Washington D.C. where political experts have perfected the art of making things disappear with time.

I, along with other journalists, like John Solomon, exposed the corruption and the unbelievable truth that Washington D.C. is a swamp filled with creatures that are still intent on removing President Donald Trump from office.

He and the American people who voted for him are the disrupters that the Washington bubble wants out. It’s the whole reason you see the so-called Republicans with the Lincoln Project utter their sanctimonious statements that they are Republicans voting for former Vice President Joe Biden.

Please don’t be fooled by that at all. They have always been the same party – these Democrats and Rhinos were just playing the American people until Trump exposed them for who they really are.

This is the real reason they are so angry and willing to do anything, everything to remove him from office and take down anyone who supports him.

I never once imagined that the biggest crooks in Washington D.C. who conspired to coup their own president of the United States and spit in the face of the American people who voted for him would be making millions off book deals, signing contracts with cable news outlets and walking around like they don’t have a care in the world.

Former fired FBI Director James Comey, his sidekick fired Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, along with a slew of other characters at the bureau have been let off easy thus far.

However, Durham may still be on track to take some of them down. Just read my most recent piece on McCabe being the center of Durham’s probe.

It may be that Durham’s team is the tightest lipped prosecution team in all of Washington D.C. history – let us hope so.

But waiting this long to bring down the hammer of justice isn’t right. What happened to Trump wasn’t just an affront to the American people but it eroded the Constitution our founding fathers fought so hard to establish.

This isn’t some long drawn out Netflix series but real life with real consequences for the future of our great nation. The DOJ and its investigators need to realize that they are warriors in a great battle to save our country and anything less is unacceptable. n

After 3 days, 12 jurors for Trump alleged hush money trial have been chosen

Published

What was anticipated to take up to two weeks has concluded in only three days. 12 jurors have been chosen for the trial against former President Donald Trump, who has been charged by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree. The charges surround alleged hush money payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to all counts, stating the trial is “political persecution.” The former president is expected to testify during his trial, and Fox News has published a list with what is known of the individuals:

Juror #1 and the foreperson: lives in New York City but is originally from Ireland. He has no children and enjoys doing anything outdoorsy. He gets his news from the New York Times, Daily Mail, Fox News and MSNBC.

When asked by Trump defense attorney Todd Blanche if he was aware Trump is charged in other cases and jurisdictions, and how that affects him, the man said, “I don’t have an opinion.”

Juror #2 Is a man who said he follows Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen on “X,” formerly known as Twitter, as well as other “right wing” accounts, including former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway.

The reason, he said, he follows those figures was so he could be plugged in to “anything that might move the markets I might need to know about.”

When asked if he would unfollow Cohen, as he may be a witness in the trial, the man said: “absolutely.”

The man also said he has “not seen any evidence” relating to the case.

“I will try to keep an open mind,” he said.

Responding to questions from Trump lawyer Susan Necheles about his feelings about the former president, the man said that Trump has done some good for the country.

“It’s ambivalent,” he said. “It goes both ways.”

The first person who was labeled juror #2 was excused Thursday morning after saying she could not be a fair juror.

Juror #3 is a young to middle-aged Asian man who lives in Manhattan. The man said he grew up in Oregon and has been an attorney for five years practicing corporate law. The man said he enjoys hiking and running, and gets his news from The New York Times and Google.

Juror #4 is originally from California, but has lived in New York City for 15 years. The man said he has been a security engineer for 25 years and holds a high school diploma, with some college education.

The man is married with three children. His wife is a teacher.

During his spare time, he enjoys being with his children, woodworking, and metal working.

The man said he has served on a jury before — on both a grand jury and a jury in a criminal trial.

The man said he gets his news from “a smattering” of news sources. As for social media, he said he doesn’t use it.

The man said he has a relative who works in finance and brothers-in-law that work as lawyers.

The man said he has no feelings about how Trump is being treated in this case.

The person who was first labeled as Juror #4 was excused Thursday morning after it was revealed that he had been previously arrested in Westchester, N.Y., for tearing down right-wing political advertisements.

Juror #5 is young and a New York native who has been a teacher of English Language Arts for eight years.

The woman was previously a caseworker at a juvenile detention center. She said she has a masters’ degree in education.

“I’m creative at heart,” she said, adding that she enjoys photography.

The woman said that she is not married and does not have children. Her mother was an administrative aide for a police department, and her godfather was a homicide detective.

The woman said she gets her news from Google and TikTok.

She was asked if Trump chose not to testify, whether she would hold that against him.

“I won’t hold that against him,” she said.

She explained that she has friends who have strong opinions on the former president but said she is not a political person and tries to avoid political conversations.

She did say, however, that she appreciates Trump’s candor.

“President Trump speaks his mind, and I’d rather that than someone who’s in office who you don’t know what they’re thinking,” she said.

When jurors were asked if they were aware Trump was charged in other cases than Bragg’s, most jurors were. However, juror #5 raised her hand to indicate that she was learning of additional charges for the first time.

Juror #6 is a young woman who lives in Manhattan. She described herself as a New Yorker. The woman is a software engineer and said she likes to dance.

Juror #7 is originally from North Carolina and works as an attorney and civil litigator.

The man said he is married with two children, and his wife works in risk management for a bank. He said he enjoys spending time outdoors and with his family.

The man said he gets his news from The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Post and the Washington Post.

When asked if his career as a lawyer would impact his ability to serve fair and impartially, or whether his opinions would get in his way, the man said that he does have “political views as to the Trump presidency” and said there were likely Trump administration policies he disagreed with.

“I don’t know the man and I don’t have any opinions about him personally,” he said.

As for his career as a lawyer, he said he does not have any opinions about Trump’s character.

“I certainly follow the news,” he said. “I’m aware there are other lawsuits out there. But I’m not sure that I know anyone’s character.”

Juror #8 has been selected. Information on this juror is not yet available.

Juror #9 is a woman who lives in Manhattan. She is originally from New Jersey and works as a speech therapist.

The woman is not married and does not have children. She said she likes to spend time with friends, go to restaurants, and go on walks.

The woman said she has never served on a jury before, and does not watch the news or follow current events too closely. The woman said she did, though, have email subscriptions to CNN and The New York Times. She said she follows social media accounts, listens to podcasts, and enjoys reality television.

The woman said she does not listen to talk radio.

The woman said she can be fair and impartial. She said she does have opinions about Trump, but said she believes she can put them aside and be fair and impartial.

Juror #10 is a man who lives in Manhattan. He was born and raised in Ohio and works in commerce for a large company. The man has a college degree.

The man said he is not married and has no children, but lives with another adult who works in accounting.

The man said he enjoys being outdoors and loves animals.

The man said he does not really follow the news, but listens to podcasts on behavioral psychology.

The man said he has no strong opinions on how Trump is treated in this case.
