Jason Chaffetz has something interesting to say about the Inspector General’s report:
Does William Barr already have the report from Horowitz, and how would that influence his actions and words in the current political climate? As Jason says, DID that influence his appointment of Durham?
In case you missed it (I’m sure most of you didn’t), AG Bill Barr has instructed U.S. Attorney John Durham to review the 2016 DOJ and FBI surveillance of the Trump campaign.
As a Facebook friend said, Durham had to clean up the mess that Mueller left in the Whitey Bulger case, so what do you imagine he thinks of Mueller?
Mollie Hemingway’s take:
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” Tlaib said.
“And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
Since the Palestinian leadership during World War II actually worked with Adolf Hitler, I don’t understand her comments. Perhaps she is just ignorant of history, or thinks the rest of us are.
Have a great day, everybody! Don’t stop being curious!
