"The National Security Archive, the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, the American Historical Association, and the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington today filed suit against President Donald Trump in his official capacity, seeking to enforce the Presidential Records Act and prevent any destruction of records during the presidential transition."

I hope this lets you sleep a little more easily, Kurt: John Durham's investigation will very likely not be squelched after Biden takes office. 



Barr Makes Durham a Special Counsel in a Bid to Entrench Scrutiny of the Russia Inquiry



WASHINGTON — Attorney General William P. Barr revealed on Tuesday that he had bestowed special counsel status on John H. Durham, the prosecutor he assigned to investigate the officials who conducted the Trump-Russia inquiry — setting the stage to leave him in place after the Biden administration takes over.

In a letter to Congress, Mr. Barr disclosed that he had secretly appointed Mr. Durham as a special counsel on Oct. 19, before the election. The action gives Mr. Durham the same independence and protections against being fired that had been enjoyed by Robert S. Mueller III, the former special counsel who eventually oversaw the Russia investigation.

“In advance of the presidential election, I decided to appoint Mr. Durham as a special counsel to provide him and his team with the assurance that they could complete their work, without regard to the outcome of the election,” Mr. Barr wrote.

The White House did not know about Mr. Durham’s appointment until Mr. Barr made his public comments on Tuesday, an official said.

Mr. Durham never fulfilled President Trump’s and his supporters’ expectations that he would bring to light some significant wrongdoing against the president before the election. But the step appeared likely to create a headache for whoever Mr. Biden appoints as attorney general, who would take over supervision of Mr. Durham’s continuing work.

Mr. Barr also empowered Mr. Durham to hunt for crimes not only during the early stages of the Trump-Russia investigation that began in July 2016, which has been his focus, but also during the period after Mr. Mueller took over that inquiry in May 2017 — making him, in effect, a special counsel for the special counsel.

A special counsel has essentially the same powers as a U.S. attorney and remains subject to an attorney general’s control, unlike past so-called independent counsels who, under a defunct law, investigated scandals like the Reagan administration’s Iran-contra affair and President Bill Clinton’s Whitewater land deal and his dalliance with Monica Lewinsky.

Still, Justice Department regulations give special counsels day-to-day independence as they pursue their assigned jobs, and they are protected from arbitrary firing by a provision that says they may be removed only “for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest or for other good cause, including violation of departmental policies.”

An attorney general may overrule a special counsel on major steps like whether to charge someone with a crime, but the department must eventually disclose that dispute to Congress.

Mr. Barr’s memo was broadly written and vague. It did not identify any suspected crime that could serve as a predicate for a continuing criminal investigation, or any particular person whom Mr. Durham was to focus on. Nor did it claim a foreign threat that would constitute any separate counterintelligence basis for an inquiry, as with the Trump-Russia investigation.

Mr. Barr also directed Mr. Durham to write a report detailing his findings that would be intended for public consumption, echoing the document Mr. Mueller compiled about Russia’s election interference and the Trump campaign, as well as Mr. Trump’s efforts to obstruct that inquiry. The special counsel regulations do not envision such a report.

    Have you ever watched a hapless parent attempt to calmly use logic and reason as their child is screaming bloody murder inside a grocery cart and demanding a sugary snack?

    That hapless parent is now Twitter. And the irate toddler is @realDonaldTrump.


    Long before he lost last month’s election to president-elect Joe Biden, we already knew Trump was to truth as a Mazda is to a dinghy. Now he’s so far off the deep end, you can barely see his greying comb-over bobbing in the chop. Trump is more delusional — and doomed — than Willy Loman. He is a cautionary tale on the self-destruction of deceit.

    He is a Mad King clutching his fake pearls and sputtering lie after lie after lie.

    If he thought there were a way to cling to power by insisting 1+1=3, his all-caps tweets would now be conspiracy theories about how math is rigged and fraudulent: “ARCHIMEDES IS A VERY BAD HOMBRE! WE ALL KNOW ARITHMETIC WAS STOLEN! WE HAVE PROOF WHITE VANS WERE DUMPING FAKE MULTIPLICATION TABLES! RUDY IS GOING TO PROVE IN COURT THAT LONG DIVISION IS A HOAX! SUBTRACTION IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

    I hate to break it to the gullible rubes who continue to swallow the dark fantasies of Dear Leader, but this election is over. Biden will be inaugurated on Jan. 20, whether or not Lou Dobbs has a million more meltdowns on live television. Sleepy Joe tucked Trump into bed as a one-term LOSER. Nighty-night. Trump Cult members might as well start hawking their MAGA merch on eBay as vintage collectibles. That’s a wrap on this four-year carnival of grievance. (...)

    I'd much rather they give him the Virgil Starkwell treatment.  He doesn't seem to wear glasses, so they could stomp on his cell phone.
