And what ?   So what if Trump appointed Wray ?  That just means that Wray was appointed by Trump, nothing else.  Doesn't give Wray a pass on anything.  How does that change anything I have mentioned ?

And I'll just throw in that you have not disavowed the Steele Dossier.  You still believe it to be true.

Durham Inquiry Appears to Wind Down as Grand Jury Expires

 

WASHINGTON — When John H. Durham was assigned by the Justice Department in 2019 to examine the origins of the investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, President Donald J. Trump and his supporters expressed a belief that the inquiry would prove that a “deep state” conspiracy including top Obama-era
officials had worked to sabotage him.

Now Mr. Durham appears to be winding down his three-year inquiry without anything close to the results Mr. Trump was seeking. The grand jury that
Mr. Durham has recently used to hear evidence has expired, and while he could convene another, there are currently no plans to do so, three people familiar with the matter said.

 
Well it ain't exactly over.  There are indictments out that will likely bring more details to light.  Embarrassing and incriminating details ...
.
Main Steele dossier source Igor Danchenko was FBI operative: court document
 
and before this latest new revelation was the indictment itself that was about the source of VV's favorite evidence, the Golden Shower incident.  He obsessed for at least a year about all the stains on the sheets of the bed, on America and Trump.  He bought into it hook, line and sinker.  As did most everyone else here and still believes in the Dossier to this very day.  Including yourself as you have yet to say that the dossier is nothing more than election fraud material.  No one here has.

Authorities arrest Steele dossier contributor Igor Danchenko

The FBI has some splainin to do, a lot.  That and the agent who was walked out the door over suppressing Hunter's laptop by circulating that it was only Russian disinformation.  Zuckerberg confirmed that the FBI told him to suppress the laptop story in FB as well.

The FBI is at the center of all of this and has obviously become an arm of the DNC.  Taking sides of one political party to attack the candidates and various individuals of the other party and in particular a Presidential election. Two consecutive elections actually.  What part of that is not a real threat to democracy ?

.
But go on and believe that only Trump is the real problem we have regarding the election process in this country.  yep.

Cosmetics Billionaire Convinced Trump That the U.S. Should Buy Greenland
Ronald S. Lauder, the Estée Lauder heir, offered himself up as back-channel negotiator to purchase Greenland from Denmark, a new book says. Denmark said no.
Greenland was one issue that absorbed the National Security Council staff for months. Mr. Trump later claimed the idea was his personal inspiration. “I said, ‘Why don’t we have that?’” he recalled in an interview last year for the book. “You take a look at a map. I’m a real estate developer. I look at a corner, I say, ‘I’ve got to get that store for the building that I’m building,’ etc. It’s not that different.”

He added: “I love maps. And I always said: ‘Look at the size of this. It’s massive. That should be part of the United States.’”

But in fact, Mr. Lauder discussed it with him from the early days of the presidency and offered himself as a back channel to the Danish government to negotiate. John R. Bolton, the national security adviser, assigned his aide Fiona Hill to assemble a small team to brainstorm ideas. They engaged in secret talks with Denmark’s ambassador and produced an options memo.

Mr. Bolton, concerned about expanding Chinese influence in the Arctic, thought that an increased American presence in Greenland made sense but that an outright purchase was not feasible. Mr. Trump kept pushing. He suggested taking federal money from Puerto Rico, which he disparaged, and using it to buy Greenland. On another occasion, he suggested outright trading Puerto Rico for Greenland.

After The Wall Street Journal reported the interest in Greenland, Denmark’s government slammed the idea. “When it became public, they lost their political courage,” Mr. Trump said in the interview last year, as if the Danes had ever been serious about selling.

Trump apparently got on a plane in NJ this evening, wearing a windbreaker and golf shoes - and landed in DC. There’s video of him getting off the plane, going straight to the limo, and then gone, probably to his golf course.

No pomp, no announcement, no suit/tie. Tomorrow might be interesting….
Here’s how this guy happened to catch it on video… It starts innocently.

Trump's Russia conspiracy theory gets dismissed in court. Trump's claims generally don't survive a challenge to prove themselves with facts. This is the crux of the judge's dismissal of Trump's RICO case: 

“At its core, the problem with Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint is that Plaintiff is not attempting to seek redress for any legal harm … instead, he is seeking to flaunt a two-hundred-page political manifesto outlining his grievances against those that have opposed him, and this Court is not the appropriate forum,” he wrote.

(I've boldfaced the juiciest bits in this post).

Trump presented his Russia hoax theory to a court. It went poorly.

https://www.washingtonpost.com...


...

The background here is interesting, by the way. Trump presented his grand Russia hoax theory in the form of a lawsuit, alleging that Hillary
Clinton and others — FBI officials, attorneys, IT guys — had conspired against him in violation of racketeering statutes (a.k.a. RICO). The suit was filed in a specific courthouse in the Southern District of Florida, apparently with the hope that it would be heard by a particular judge that Trump himself had appointed.

It wasn’t. Instead, it landed with District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks. When Trump’s legal team quickly moved to have Middlebrooks removed from
the case, alleging bias, Middlebrooks responded by disparaging the transparency of Trump’s effort.

“I note that Plaintiff filed this lawsuit in the Fort Pierce division of this District, where only one federal judge sits: Judge Aileen Cannon, who Plaintiff appointed in 2020,” he wrote in denying Trump’s request. “Despite the odds, this case landed with me instead. And when Plaintiff is a litigant before a judge that he himself appointed, he does not tend to advance these same sorts of bias concerns.”

Aileen Cannon, you may be aware, is the jurist who recently issued a ruling of remarkable favorability on Trump’s behalf in the matter of the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago.

Middlebrooks’s blunt tone in assessing Trump’s intent carried through to his dismissal of the lawsuit this week.

“Plaintiff’s theory of this case, set forth over 527 paragraphs in the first 118 pages of the Amended Complaint, is difficult to summarize in a concise
and cohesive manner,” Middlebrooks wrote as he began picking Trump’s allegations apart. “It was certainly not presented that way.”

In short, the theory that flourished in Trump’s friendly ecosystem was that the Russia probe was a function of explicit dishonesty on the part of Clinton: that her allies sought to create a dossier of false reports about Trump and Russia and that they used stolen data to suggest a link between Trump’s business and a Russian bank.

The suit was filed only after the latter allegation became a central part of special counsel John Durham’s investigation. Durham, you’ll recall, was appointed by then-Attorney General William P. Barr specifically to try to see whether a case could be made to cast the investigation into Russian interference as flawed or biased. Unfortunately for Trump, the case was also filed before Durham’s case fell apart and before the lawyer targeted for prosecution, Michael Sussmann, was found not guilty by a jury.

“The Amended Complaint cites copiously to the indictment of Michael Sussmann and a substantial portion of the Amended Complaint contains its
allegations,” Middlebrooks writes at one point. “But nowhere does the Amended Complaint mention Mr. Sussmann’s acquittal.”)

As one would expect, the focus of the decision is on the legal merits of the case, which Middlebrooks found entirely unconvincing.

“Plaintiff cannot state a RICO claim without two predicate acts,” he writes, for example, “and, after two attempts, he has failed to plausibly allege
even one.”

Middlebrooks derides the sloppiness of the Trump team’s presentation, the obvious challenges with the statute of limitations for any such suit and the
quality of the evidence offered. At one point, he notes that Trump’s lawyers misunderstood an allegation centered on computer hacking. (“What
must be ‘off limits,’ ” he explains, “is the area of the computer from which the information was obtained, not the information itself.”) At
another, he reflects on the circuitousness of Trump’s assertions about the FBI probe into interference, code-named “Crossfire Hurricane.”

“Perplexingly, Plaintiff appears to argue that the Defendants obstructed investigation Crossfire Hurricane by contributing to the initiation of Crossfire Hurricane,” he writes. “That Defendants could have obstructed a proceeding by initiating it defies logic.”

While the decision centers on the legal questions, it does also uproot the baseless accusation itself. A report from the Justice Department’s
inspector general cited by Trump’s lawyers “compels the opposite conclusion” from the one Trump offers in his theory: The IG “concluded
that the FBI operated Crossfire Hurricane ‘for an authorized purpose’ and ‘with adequate factual predication’ that had nothing to do with any
Defendant.”

What’s more, Middlebrooks adds later: “Plaintiff does not plausibly allege that any or Trump Organization computer was hacked.” This
was an allegation Trump and his allies made repeatedly this year, elevating components of legal filings from Durham. Middlebrooks is correct: There is no evidence of any such hacking, much less Trump’s broader claim that the Russia probe was to any significant degree downstream from Hillary Clinton.

“The Inspector General Report specifically explained that the investigation was not predicated on DNC information or the Steele Dossier, but on a
tip from a friendly foreign government,” Middlebrooks wrote,
articulating what is common knowledge in the world outside of Trump’s
terrarium.

The judge made very clear that he understood Trump’s suit for what it obviously is.

“At its core, the problem with Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint is that Plaintiff is not attempting to seek redress for any legal harm … instead, he is seeking to flaunt a two-hundred-page political manifesto outlining his grievances against those that have opposed him, and this Court is not the appropriate forum,” he wrote.

The appropriate forum is cable news or Truth Social. You can’t simply pluck a mushroom off a rotting log and transplant it onto a table and expect
it to thrive. It needs the right environment, one in which credulity and fealty are abundant.


The real world is simply too inhospitable.

Lawyers thrive on adversarial situations. Even lawyers for someone as famous as Trump aren't as visible to the public as Trump press secretary Sanders or SC justice Kavanaugh. They're not going to get hassled by the general public. Can you name without googling the #BillionDollarLawyer representing Trump in the 2020 election interference criminal inquiry in Georgia? Can you name without googling the lawyers besides Johnnie Cochran who represented OJ?

If Trump ever had a strong legal case and behaved like a responsible client, he'd have his choice of the best lawyers. Most successful lawyers don't become household names like Cochran did, but winners defending high-profile clients become huge amongst their professional colleagues.

Trump is an awful client. Trump stiffs his lawyers. He doesn't know how to shut up. And he keeps placing himself in legally perilous situations. He must have known that he was committing a crime when he tried to bully Raffensperger into throwing the GA vote for him. He must have known he could get into serious legal trouble for holding onto government documents, especially the ones with the highest security restrictions.

And the lawsuits Trump brings keep getting laughed out of court. I'll post something on that later today. Looks like yourTrump's take on the Russia investigation really is utterly whackadoo.
