Biden’s AG pick declines to say whether he’ll cancel Durham probe

President Joe Biden promised early on that he would not compromise current federal investigations once he entered the White House.

But according to Breitbart, questions are now being raised after Biden’s nominee for U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland refused to confirm or deny during his confirmation hearing whether or not he would cancel the ongoing investigation into “Crossfire Hurricane” by special counsel John Durham, who was appointed to the investigation by former Attorney General Bill Barr. 

Given the potential implications of what Durham’s upcoming report might say about former officials in President Barack Obama’s administration, should Garland be confirmed and later cancel the investigation, the optics — on an ethical level — would be disastrous for Biden.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) posed the question to Garland during Monday’s Senate confirmation hearing, using an example from Barr’s confirmation hearing in which he clearly pledged to let Robert Mueller continue on with his investigation at the time. Grassley wanted Garland to follow that same protocol.

Garland kept responding to the senator with claims that he needs to speak to Mr. Durham first but that he doesn’t see any reason why he would be removed, but he never gave Grassley the same commitment that Barr provided when he was confirmed, raising questions that Garland might not be fully on board with keeping Durham on the investigation.

“So senator, I don’t have any information about the investigation as I sit here today, and another one of the very first things I’m going to have to do is speak with Mr. Durham and figure out how his investigation is going,” Garland said in his opening response to Grassley.

Grassley made clear his concerns over Garland’s long and dodgy answers regarding the situation, suggesting that the nominee doesn’t appear to be fully committed.

“It’s not an answer this Committee would have accepted from Barr on Mueller. I think your predisposition, frankly, should be to protect and support the ongoing investigation as much as possible,” Grassley said.

Only time will tell if Garland, assuming he’s confirmed, will take measures to cancel the Durham probe, but from what it sounds like at this point, that option is certainly not off the table.

Garland was rejected for the Supreme Court because of his bias against the Bill of Rights, especially the 1st and 2nd Amendments several years ago. He should decline the attorney general nomination and go back to his “safe” job….

True. Durham should reveal this report which will be very damaging to the Democrats. President Trump was the best President that America has ever had.

The act would not surprise me in the least. They are, after all, a bunch of idiots. The act would only serve to verify their “guilty hands” involvement in all the ongoing investigations. Think about it. Why they want all of that to come out. Answer is, …….
THEY DON’T!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Members of the House
202-224-3841

Members of the Senate
202-224-3121

TOLL FREE:

One call per rep!

Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

I have contacted my representatives and pray that Biden-Harris administration will be found to be the fraud that they are and never WON this election. President Trump won by a large majority and the whole world knows this. This was the biggest fraud ever in the history of America. Wimpy, weak Republicans will not fight for America and roll over for the strong, evil Democrats.

To my fellow Americans, I can only say that if we don’t resist and repel this attack on our Republic, our lives and the lives and futures of our children and grandchildren it’s over, done, finished unless, we all learn to speak Chinese!

Unfortunately, Thomas, you are so right !!!

A lot of us understand exactly what’s going on, this whole sham with the Nov election was preplanned step by step by Pelosi, Obama, and all the rest of the commies in DC !!!
The only question is where are our so called
“ representatives “ ?? What are they doing ??
I only hear few voices, here and there( Cruz,
Hawley, Nunez, Jordan, Scalise and few of the new ones elected to Congress)
Why are we talking about “future elections”
since we all know that this election was a fraud? ???
Our country, unfortunately is falling apart and
all we can do is watch and wait !!!!

Disgusting, shameful!!!
This was nothing but a silent coup !!!

Have we all turned into a country of sheeple ??

Garland didn’t seem to know anything about anything. Advancing him to AG is as smart as promoting a non-doctor to head HHS. Goes along with the rest of the political fascists Dementia Joe has nominated. If there is a halt put to Durham’s investigation would that be impeachable?

They got so desperate to get rid of Trump not only because they couldn’t believe he dared to
manage to get elected in 2016 (when it was Hillary’s turn to be president ) but they realized that Trump might dig out lots of corruption and garbage that they have pushed under the rug for decades … that would’ve been the end of them, the commies !!!!
So, they had to work hard to preplan all that sham about mail in voting ( to protect the people from the virus !!! Sure !!!!)
So , they did it !!!
They knew the Republicans will do nothing but
allow them to step all over us !!!
After all, this is what they’ve been doing forever !!!!!

Pelosi is the one who planned what happened at the Capital she brought in Antifa and BLM to cause the damage and kill the women. The same guy who recorded everything and sold it for $70,000.00 he is a family friend they have pictures of them together. He was arrested but Kamala had him released they only wanted Trump supporters. Yet he was the one breaking windows and yelling burn it down.Time to make Pelosi pay for plotting against Trump and his supporters Democrats are the ones destroying America and it’s citizens. Time to make them pay for all the damage done by Antifa and BLM because they brought them in to loot burn and murder.

I have limited funds and no money available to contribute. However: Watch the “OAN – ABSOLUTE PROOF” (2 hour documentary) after reading the following:
HOW CAN MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY, THE SUPREME COURT (and others) BE SO BLIND AND IGNORANT?
IT IS “INTUITIVELY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER” THAT THIS ELECTION WAS FRAUGHT WITH FRAUD TO OVERRIDE THE LEGITIMATE VOTES!!!!
FURTHERMORE; THE SENATE AND HOUSE WERE DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY TO VERIFY ALL LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE COUNTED, AND ENSURE THAT ALL NON-LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE REJECTED!!!!
I fully support President Donald J Trump, recognize he truly loves this country and stands firmly for what is right, for the Constitution and for We The People of The United States of America.
There is a very huge silent majority who recognizes that We as well as He are under attack by the radical left. Democ’rats. (Which is what the Democrat Party needs to be renamed as that name accurately reflects their Attitude and Hate for all that is good for our nation.) Democ’rats should never be referred to as being the Democratic Party, because there isn’t anything in their platform or conduct that indicates they adhere to Democratic principles. Anyone who refers to them as being Democratic or being The Democratic Party is either ignorant or lacks even an ounce of intelligence.
Just make sure as Republican members/candidates for the Senate and House you will fully support and stand with President Donald J Trump, truly love this country and stand firmly for what is right for the Constitution and We The People of The United States of America. If you do, I am confident the huge silent majority will elect/retain you to represent them. DO IT!
