Some Residual Russiagate

The election having stolen most of the political energy, Russiagate material has been slow to surface, but I have enough to be worth dumping while it's still fairly fresh.

A day late and a few dollars short, Fox's Brooke Singeman reports that the Durham probe moving 'full steam ahead' after Election Day 

“Durham remains full steam ahead,” the source familiar with the investigation told Fox News.

Another source told Fox News that his investigation “is definitely still happening,” despite radio silence coming from the U.S. attorney from Connecticut.
. . .
One source told Fox News Durham had been “feeling more pressure to get this done and wrapped up” over the summer, but said that Durham “does not want this to be viewed political,” and would likely “punt it to after the election,” which he ultimately did.

Dan Chaitin writes that  Devin Nunes warns 'growing concern' that Biden and Obama will shut down Durham inquiry. I wouldn't be surprised if the Biden administration didn't go after him legally.

Julie Kelly at AmGreat thinks The Obama-Trump Transition Was More Like Sedition "Barack Obama and Joe Biden may have given a public impression of the peaceful transfer of power, but they were working behind the scenes to sabotage the incoming president." while Stephen Kruiser at The PJ Media Morning Briefing  thinks  Trump Needs to Go Scorched-Earth Until January 20th. I'm OK with that. 

John Solomon at JTN, Senators release new evidence tying Hunter Biden business to communist China, Russian energy. Breitbart, GOP Senators Plan to Continue Probe into Hunter Biden’s Dealings. Follow the money. Michael Goodwin at NYPO wants President Trump to Appoint a special counsel to look into Hunter Biden deals. A good idea. See how long he lasts before China Joe fires him, and see how little the media object. 

Emails from July 13th, 2016, however, reveal Mackler strategizing how Biden, who was still serving as Vice President at the time, could “sell out” and join corporate boards to grift.

Noting the idea had “been talked about already,” Mackler reasons that if former Senator Evan Bayh could make $1 million from corporate board positions, “JRB” could do “quite well” adopting the same strategy.

Breitbart,  Report: Biden to Name Russia Hoaxer, CNN Analyst Tony Blinken Secretary of State

Former Vice President Joe Biden is reportedly set to announce this week that Tony Blinken, who supported the idea of “Russia collusion,” would be his Secretary of State.

Bloomberg News reported Sunday evening:
President-elect Joe Biden intends to name his longtime adviser Antony Blinken as secretary of State, according to three people familiar with the matter, setting out to assemble his cabinet even before Donald Trump concedes defeat.

In addition, Jake Sullivan, formerly one of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, is likely to be named Biden’s national security adviser, according to two people familiar with the matter. An announcement is expected Tuesday, the people said.
Blinken, who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security advisor under President Barack Obama, has also been a New York Times opinion writer and a “global affairs analyst” for CNN. In that capacity, he supported the “Russia collusion” hoax.

As Breitbart News reported in 2017, Blinken told CNN: “The president’s ongoing collusion with Russia’s plans is really striking, intentional or not.” He said that Russia had sown doubt about American elections and institutions.

(Subsequently, an investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.)
