The WaPo Rolls Out a Narrative-Setting Story on the Huber Investigation
DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon

Posted on 01/10/2020 4:26:10 AM PST by EyesOfTX

Are you possibly getting a wee little bit tired of all this WINNING yet? No? – Yeah, you know what’s coming: All major U.S. stock indexes – the NASDAQ, the S&P 500 and the Dow – closed at all-time record high levels on Thursday as the markets recognized the soundness of the Trump Administration’s strategy vis a vis Iran even as the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies raged on about it. And it’s only going to get better today, as pre-market trading futures indicate the markets will open at new record levels later this morning. Truly, it never gets old.

Is Hillary finally off the hook on her fake Foundation influence peddling? – If you believe the Washington Post, you will think she is. The corrupt news fakers at the WaPo reported yesterday that the “investigation” supposedly being conducted by Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber – a lifelong Democrat and Obama appointee – into the machinations of the Clinton Foundation has ended without result. Thus, if the report, based solely on the Post’s usual anonymous sources, is to be believed, the Huber investigation turns out to have been just another of so many false promises made by the worthless ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who announced his assignment of this task to Huber in early 2018.

It has long seemed obvious to me that Huber was actually doing nothing real on this “investigation;” thus, this report comes as no real surprise. But this is the Washington Post, after all, filing yet another foundation-devoid report based on nothing but “sources” who refuse to be named. As we have seen time after time over the last four years, this sort of report has well over a 50% chance of being a completely false story, nothing more than an attempt by someone who might be a target of the “investigation” to set a favorable narrative in advance of the issuance of whatever findings Huber may decide to produce. We have seen this tactic time after time after time, as corrupt media outlets like the WaPo work hard to provide cover for their Deep State benefactors.

So, it is always wise to wait a few days to see what else might pop up.

It is interesting to note that this story is chock-full of all sorts of qualifiers and weasel words, which indicates the reporter(s) who worked on it are attempting to spin a yarn and want to be able to claim ignorance should future revelations prove it to have been inaccurate. Here are some examples:

The very first paragraph says the investigation “has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.” What that sentence really says is that the investigation hasn’t ended at all and the “sources” on whom the reporter is relying aren’t really sure of what they are telling the reporter. This confirmed in paragraph 3, which says, in part: “Current and former officials said that Huber has largely finished and found nothing worth pursuing — though the assignment has not formally ended and no official notice has been sent to the Justice Department or to lawmakers, these people said.” Oh. Ok. Paragraph 4 reinforces that the investigation is not actually closed with this opening: “The effective conclusion of his investigation…” An “effective” conclusion is not a conclusion. Thus, we see the early paragraphs of the story completely contradict the headline. This investigation – to the extent it is a real investigation – is not closed at all, and someone in the Deep State is worried about that fact.

The next part of any good Deep State cover story is to glorify the bad actors at the DOJ who are most likely also the people leaking this information to the WaPo’s reporter.

Paragraph 11 takes care of that task with this: “But from the start, senior officials inside the Justice Department viewed Huber’s task as unlikely to lead to anything of significance…” That would be “senior officials” like Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and James Comey and Lisa Page. You know – all those “senior officials” who no longer work at the DOJ. There is much, much more of this kind of nonsense in this story, including three paragraphs later on that are designed to create sympathy for poor, poor Hillary Clinton, but you get the point: This is just another Deep State narrative creation story dutifully rolled out by the sympathetic corrupt reporters and editors who infest the WaPo and our national fake news media.

Again, I harbor little belief that Huber has been doing anything real in this investigation as it relates to the Clinton Foundation, and am not anticipating any real results from it in terms of doing anything to punish the Pantsuit Princess for her blatant selling of the Secretary of State’s office to the highest bidders. But this particular WaPo story, planted as it obvious has been by Deep State interests, raises the prospect that Huber might be onto something tangentially related to the Clinton Foundation, something that has some Deep State skunk or snake worried.

So, best to wait a few days and see what else develops on this front before just assuming Huber has a big bag of nothing. Because more often than not, narrative-setting stories like this one clearly is turn out to be proven false by subsequent events.

That is all.

What was this, an investigation by Twitter from Utah. If this a hole found nothing wrong with obstructing justice by destroying evidence, at a minimum, he should be fired ASAP.

The “trust” sunshine pumping gaslighting was used by the Uniparty to hamstring POTUS and the MAGA agenda for the first two years of Trump’s presidency. During that time he got basically none of his agenda through a GOP controlled congress. Those years are gone forever, obviously.

AG Barr confirmed Huber never started an investigation.

WILLIAM BARR: Right, so Huber had originally been asked to take a look at the FISA applications and the electronic surveillance but then he stood back and put that on hold while the Office of Inspector General was conducting its review, which would’ve been normal for the department. And he was essentially on standby in case Mr. Horowitz referred a matter to him to be handled criminally. So he has not been active on this front in recent months and so Durham is taking over that role. The other issues he’s been working on relate to Hillary Clinton. Those are winding down and hopefully we’ll be in a position to bring those to fruition.

JAN CRAWFORD: So he won’t be involved in this(IE:FISA) really at all then?

From your article which Tom Fitton also is using as a source
According to The Washington Post
Do I need to explain what the Washington post is?

He never started an assigned investigation on the FISA abuse subject. He ostensibly has been investigating the Clinton foundation, which Barr also confirmed.

Mark Meadows asked him to report on an on going investigation. What do you expect him to do go and tell them?
