Democrats and the mainstream media have put the nail in the coffin on two key issues of past and future elections. From two different sources within the Department of Justice, news came today the media may have prematurely closed the book on some very newsworthy issues.
On the census asking about citizenship, Attorney General Bill Barr stated:
Attorney General William Barr said Monday that the Justice Department has a new legal strategy for adding a question about citizenship status onto the 2020 census, according to a new report.
“I think over the next day or two you’ll see what approach we’re taking,” Barr told reporters in South Carolina. “And I think it does provide a pathway for getting the question on the census.”
The Washington Examiner team also details how a new legal team will be put in place to implement that strategy.
But that was not the only news coming out of the Department of Justice today. The Daily Caller is reporting that:
The Justice Department’s office of the inspector general has conducted more than 100 interviews and reviewed over 1 million records as part of its investigation of the FBI’s use of the FISA process to surveil the Trump campaign, according to a letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
In a letter sent to four congressional committees on June 25, Michael Horowitz, the inspector general, said that investigators have made “substantial progress” in the probe, and that “our investigative work is nearing completion.”
This should be an interesting report and could turn the tables upside down on the Democrats now-discredited Russian collusion narrative. Was the real story of Russian collusion an out-of-control FBI out to get then-candidate Donald Trump? The Obama-appointed Inspector General Michael Horowitz's forthcoming report could shed some light on the real motive.
So while the mainstream media seems to believe some things are finished, the Department of Justice is moving ahead with them. Could be a very interesting time.
