DOJ Promotes Durham to Special Counsel, Pushing ‘ObamaGate’ Probe into Biden Administration

4D chess indeed.

While Bill Barr may not be getting high marks for his recent comments on the integrity of the 2020 election, he is looking to provide a sort of gag parting gift to the Biden Administration as they prepare to assume the presidency.

Barr drew the ire of conservatives everywhere when he declared that the Department of Justice had not seen enough evidence of voter fraud to reverse the results of the election – something that President Trump and his legal team have been attempting to do for nearly a month now.

But Barr may have just redeemed himself in the MAGA movement’s eyes with a deft move in the DOJ this week.

Attorney General William Barr has appointed U.S. attorney John Durham as a special counsel to investigate the origins of the FBI’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The appointment formalizes Durham’s ongoing probe, but more significantly, would give Durham latitude to continue the politically explosive investigation after President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January.

Barr elevated Durham to special-counsel status on Oct. 19 but disclosed the move in a letter Tuesday to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.

The Biden transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Democrats have long viewed Durham’s efforts as political payback by President Donald Trump and his allies, seeking to deflect from evidence that the Trump campaign capitalized on the Kremlin’s efforts.

This means that Obama’s Vice President will be forced to endure an investigation into that former administration’s actions ahead of the 2016 election, after having been elected in 2020.

4D chess indeed.
