Had to throw Trump a bone after publicly stating Powell is full of shit and there’s no evidence of any systemic fraud. Doesn’t want to get smeared and end up on the death threat list of the Trumptards.

I am curious what pretext he is using for making this a special counsel.

lol Barr really doesn’t even know the law.

28 CFR 600.3

“The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government.”

John Durham has been a US Attorney since 2018.

Sam miller - lol Barr really doesn't even know the law.

28 CFR 600.3

Send him an email and tel him what the law is.

im sure he would appreciate your opinion

Dude is taking twice as long as Mueller’s international investigation, to investigate something whose potential perpetrators are all in the same fucking building and actually signed and filed all the potential evidence.

lol

I thought an independent counsel comes from outside the government, whereas a special counsel is within. 

lmao good luck with that.  Biden will replace Barr and Durham immediately.  The new special prosecutor will come in and after a week determine no improprieities were committed by the intelligence community and the whole investigation will be shut down.   Just like Biden did with the Ukraine investigation into Burisma.   The only difference is, Joe won't have to do a quid pro quo billion dollar threat to make it happen this time.

I'm starting to get the feeling barr likes to toy with the media. 

10 days before he appointed durham to special counsel these were some headlines

Oct 9, 2020 - Politics & Policy

Barr tells Republicans Durham report won't be ready by election

Maybe I'll do some profiles on McCabe, lisa page, peter strzok, james clapper, john brennan, stefan halper, Igor dancheko, etc

Does not appear to be narrow in scope either

So — the question was asked multiple times, ‘why doesn’t Barr appoint a special counsel?’. & the answer was the same as it was when Jeff Sessions denied the request more than two years ago.

It wasn’t necessary. You only use the special counsel regulations to conduct an investigation when you think the DOJ may not be able to conduct it without interference, like when Trump fired Comey.

So this is a standard move. It’s only worth doing if Trump lost the election, which Barr seems to be acknowledging finally, and now the move is relevant to protect it. 

The only change on dynamics is that now Durham will have a reporting requirement under the special counsel regs. It doesn’t give him more power or reach, just protection.

" The Special Counsel may be disciplined or removed from office only by the personal action of the Attorney General. The Attorney General may remove a Special Counsel for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies. The Attorney General shall inform the Special Counsel in writing of the specific reason for his or her removal."

Terminating a special counsel is not as easy as it sounds, or both Clinton and Trump would have removed their respective special counsels.

Oct 19th was so the same day Schiff and Nadler sent a letter to horowitz asking him to investigate the DOJ for trying to influence the election in favor of trump
