Attorney General William Barr has been very busy lately getting to the bottom of the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign and trying to prevent Trump from winning the 2016 election.
Barr and the prosecutor running the investigation, John H. Durham, just shifted into a criminal inquiry and that means corrupt Obama-era officials could be held accountable.
This has already infuriated Democrats, but Barr just pulled the trigger and left former National Intelligence Director James Clapper totally speechless.
Appearing on national television, Clapper was practically speechless after he found out that “the feds have opened a criminal probe into the Russian collusion hoax,” wrote the Boston Herald’s Howie Carr.
Carr wrote that Clapper was “disillusioned” and had a “meltdown for the ages.”
“Well, I should … you know be very curious since presumably … I uh I guess uh I’m one of those under investigation and … I uh don’t know —” said Clapper in response.
After stuttering and stammering to respond, Clapper frantically questioned the timing of this probe by claiming it was related to the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
“I just uh uh, you know, read the clip, um, about 20 minutes ago, um, I found the timing interesting given, uh the uh, increasing heat around the impeachment inquiry and so, uh it it uh, the timing’s interesting,” he stuttered.

Clapper’s meltdown on national television came after Barr said Durham will “get to the bottom of things” and that shifting into a criminal inquiry means that it’s “possible” Obama officials could be indicted.
Republicans are counting on indictments or at least a report that shows wrongdoing on the part of former FBI Director James Comey, former DNI head James Clapper, and others in the way they went after Trump to investigate him even before he took office in 2017.
Giving Clapper even more of a reason to be nervous, it was reported that a former top Obama official has agreed to cooperate with Barr’s investigation.
Former FBI general counsel James Baker is working with Barr and assisting in his probe.
Baker is important to this whole investigation because he was the one who initially leaked the information that led to the probe against then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The former FBI general counsel had leaked information to the Washington Post, which ran the story at the behest of Clapper.
Baker played a big role in the FBI going after Flynn and kicking off the phony Russia probe — so the fact that he’s cooperating with the DOJ is a very big deal.
This also comes after it was revealed that the Department of Justice announced last week that an administrative review of the Russia investigation has shifted into a criminal inquiry.
This means that Barr and Durham now have the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to convene a grand jury, and to file criminal charges.
It certainly appears that Barr and Durham have already found evidence of criminal wrongdoing regarding the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.
They wouldn’t have turned their investigation into criminal inquiry if there wasn’t evidence of Obama officials potentially breaking the law.
The president has turned the tables, and the American people will soon learn of the corrupt actions taken by Obama and his allies to take down Trump.
