Remember how Dems and even some R’s tripped over themselves to make sure Trump didn’t interfere with the Mueller investigation? Is the Durham investigation being held to that same high standard?

Whether or not we ever see any of the key players wearing orange jumpsuits, one thing Durham has been doing is connecting the dots for some seriously unconstitutional political dirty pool.

AG Garland has made it abundantly clear that he is far more interested in carrying the water for Biden’s woke policies and political score-settling than he ever was in being an impartial public servant interested in such notions as enforcement of the law.

One might even say the AG is behaving as Biden’s ‘wing man’. Exactly the kind of thing we heard Dems losing their collective minds over with (obviously) overheated accusations leveled against Bill Barr.

His handling of those accused in response to Jan 6, his woke policies, his failure to take action against certain kinds of criminal behavior, not to mention the memo he wrote were some of the decisions that helped solidify perceptions of Garland as a partisan.

When Hillary’s inner circle began to become implicated in the Durham investigation, Republican legislators became concerned that it might be swept under the rug, much like certain other allegations that had been leveled against FBI brass or various notable Democrats in the past.

Like politicians did with the Mueller Report, Republicans in Congress took an interest in this investigation proceeding without any interference from Biden’s wingman.

According to a report at Just the News, 46 Republican senators, led by Rick Scott of Florida, wrote a letter to Garland to seek his “assurance” “that you will continue to respect the prosecutorial independence of Special Counsel John Durham and his staff, while also ensuring he is provided all resources necessary to fully, thoroughly, and completely pursue the investigation for which he was appointed.”

The letter followed by only days Durham’s motion in federal court linking Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer, Michael Sussman, and other campaign officials to a tech company that was hired to “mine” Trump data servers “for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.” —WorldNetDaily

Here’s the Judicial Watch Press release about their lawsuit because the DOJ refused to comply with FOIA requests:

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for records of communication between Special Counsel John Durham and Attorney General Merrick Garland (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:22-cv-00734)).

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the DOJ failed to respond to an August 23, 2021, FOIA request for:

1. All records of communication, including emails and text messages, between Special Counsel John Durham and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

2. All budget records related to the operations of the office of Special Counsel John Durham.

Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley raised concerns last year about whether the Justice Department was in potential conflict with the Durham investigation because a senior Justice official, Susan Hennessey, had previously made statements attacking the Durham Investigation. The senators said, in December 2021, that Hennessey “expressed a clear partisan bias against the Special Counsel’s investigation,” referring to one of her tweets: “Durham has made abundantly clear that in a year and a half, he hasn’t come up with anything. I guess this kind of partisan silliness has become characteristic of Barr’s legacy, but unclear to me why Durham would want to go along with it.”

Durham’s investigation began in May 2019, and he was officially designated as Special Counsel in October 2020.

“It shouldn’t take a federal lawsuit to get answers to simple requests for information about Garland’s communications with Durham and basic budget documents about the Durham Special Counsel operation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
