Larry Johnson Writes, Attorney General Barr Has ‘Pulled the Trigger’
Oct. 26, 2019 (EIRNS)—Writing on the “Sic Semper Tyrannis” website, Larry Johnson, a former CIA analyst who helped create the VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity), proclaims that the counterpunch against the attempted coup has been kicked into high gear under the direction Attorney General Bill Barr. Johnson writes:
“I do not believe that it is a mere coincidence that these three events occurred late last night [Thursday night]:
“1. The investigation of the roots of the plot to destroy Donald Trump and his Presidency is now a criminal matter.
“2. A letter from Inspector General Horowitz announcing that his report on the FISA fraud would be out shortly with no major redactions.
“3. The Government caved to Honey Badger Sidney Powell and allowed her to fully expose criminal conduct by Michael Flynn’s prosecutors.
“What is going on? Two words. Bill Barr. The Attorney General has pulled the trigger and altered the landscape in the Russiagate saga. Having been granted full authority by the President to declassify information, including intel from the CIA and the NSA, he has now acted in a powerful, but low key way.

Criminal penalties attach....
“Christopher Wray and his sycophants last night folded like a cheap tent in a hurricane in terms of blocking release of the Inspector General report on FISA abuses. They also withdrew the FBI objections to the Exhibits that Sidney Powell had attached to her brief explaining why the FBI had engaged in criminal activity against her client, Gen. Mike Flynn.
“When Durham goes to the CIA, the DIA and the NSA asking questions and demanding documents they must cooperate or face criminal charges. That is the gamechanger.”
