The Corruption of the DOJ Grows

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

We now have the fourth investigation charged with ‘investigating the investigators’ who began the Russia probe. Attorney General Bill Barr has tasked the US Attorney in Connecticut, John H. Durham, with conducting yet another probe. Most press reports will say this is the third. There’s the on-going Inspector General investigation and the investigation by Utah US Attorney John H. Huber. But in fact this is the second Inspector General’s investigation into this question. Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrenched the first from its initial brief to probe leaks and potential bias against Hillary Clinton into one focused on bias against President Trump.

On their face, each of these probes is being conducted by a respected federal prosecutor. Durham has been charged with conducting other national security related investigations in the past by Attorneys General of both parties. But as we’ve discussed bureaucrats tend to go looking for things their superiors want them to find especially when their original tasking makes clear what the superior is looking for. That has clearly been the case with each of these four probes.

It’s all corrupt.
