This is too funny – they aren’t going to release any report – right now! The DOJ LEFT is still hanging around the DOJ. Why didn’t AG Barr select someone on the outside who wouldn’t be involved in this mess. How could Bash not be biased having worked at the DOJ?
STL.News) – U.S. Attorney John F. Bash announced today that he will resign from the Department of Justice on Friday, October 9, 2020, at 11:59pm. U.S. Attorney Bash issued the following statement:
This Friday—eight years to the day after I first joined the Department of Justice—I will step down as United States Attorney for the Western District of Texas. Last month I accepted an offer for a position in the private sector and informed the Attorney General of my decision. I tendered formal letters of resignation to both the President and the Attorney General this morning.

The Justice Department probe into Obama administration officials accused of “unmasking” President Trump’s associates, including one-time National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, has reportedly ended without criminal charges.
The Washington Post reported late Tuesday evening that a report of the investigation would not be released, according to sources familiar with the matter.
The Daily Caller reports:
Attorney General William Barr earlier this year tapped John Bash, the outgoing U.S. attorney in San Antonio, to investigate whether Obama administration officials abused the process for requesting intelligence reports on Trump associates.
The inquiry began following the release of a document that showed that 39 officials in the Obama White House and other federal agencies requested intelligence reports that had information about former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Among those officials was then-Vice President Joe Biden.
U.S. officials routinely submit so-called unmasking requests in order to better understand intelligence reports. But Republicans have suggested that the Obama officials intentionally made requests for reports that mentioned Trump associates. The Republican theory was that government officials may have leaked negative information about Flynn and other Trump associates to the media.
It is unclear if Bash investigated the Obama officials’ rationale for requesting intelligence reports that mentioned Flynn and other Trump associates. Biden has been asked about his unmasking request during one interview and denied any wrongdoing.
What else did he expect – was Biden under oath? Or was it like Comey and Billary – who got a FREE PASS?
