Attorney General Bill Barr said Wednesday that while he didn’t want to do anything to “affect the election,” he’s trying to get parts of the Durham probe completed before then.

Before the House Judiciary Committee last month, Barr declined to promise that he wouldn’t release the report before the election.

“We are gonna proceed with this investigation and not put it on hold right now during election season,” Barr said Wednesday on an interview on “The Buck Sexton Show.”

“We’re all aware of the calendar and we’re not going to do anything for the purposes of affecting an election, but we are trying to get some things accomplished before the election,” he said.

He declined to answer Sexton’s question about if the probe is in its final stages, but promised that “people will be held accountable” if prosecutor John Durham finds that any criminal laws were violated.

The probe has become increasingly colored by partisanship as President Donald Trump openly hopes for, and pins Barr’s legacy on, Durham finding evidence to discredit the origin of the FBI’s investigation into his campaign. And, as Trump has made clear, he wants that exculpation before the November election.

“Bill Barr can go down as the greatest attorney general in the history of our country, or he can go down as an average guy,” Trump said Thursday, about the probe’s findings. “We’ll see what happens.”

“(Barr and Durham) have all the answers,” he added. “It goes all to Obama, and it goes right to Biden.”

Witnesses who sat for interviews with Durham told CNN that they sensed investigators were under pressure to deliver findings before the election.

Barr has repeatedly broken with Justice Department practice by speaking out and opining about Durham’s ongoing investigation. During a Fox News interview, he called the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign “one of the greatest travesties in American history.”

CNN also reported Thursday that Barr initially wanted Michael Mukasey to head the probe. Mukasey was attorney general during the George W. Bush administration, and, later, a law partner of Rudy Giuliani. Mukasey has advocated publicly for the Mueller probe to be called off.

During his interview with Sexton, Barr added that he and FBI Director Chris Wray have been discussing “checks and balances” to install in the FBI to avoid replicating the “abuses of the past.” He did not, however, discuss last week’s report from the director of national intelligence that found that Russia is supporting efforts to damage Joe Biden and boost Trump during the 2020 election.

    Georgia governor Brian Kemp has announced that he is dropping his lawsuit against the city of Atlanta for implementing a mask mandate, according to the AP.

    The lawsuit against Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and the City Council was filed July 16, with Kemp claiming that it defied his executive order that said local governments cannot implement coronavirus measures that are stricter than the state’s regulations. While Kemp has strongly urged people to wear masks, he has not instituted a state-wide mandate.

    Joe Biden told pool reporters in Wilmington, Delaware that Donald Trump’s comments about not giving more funding to the US Postal Service (USPS) to carry out mail-in voting was “pure Trump”.

    “He doesn’t want an election,” he added.

    Pool report: "During the pool spray at the briefing, [Biden was asked]: 'President Trump today said that he opposes funding for the Postal Service, tying it to mail-in voting. What do you think about that?' Mr. Biden responded: 'Pure Trump. He doesn't want an election.'"

Thu, 13 Aug 2020 15:28:05 +0000 BlogLikes - Find Most Popular Blogs Sheriff: Fairfield Man Arrested 4 Times In Past 4 Months For Possession Of Stolen Motor Vehicles FAIRFIELD (CBS13) — A suspect in a car linked to a series of crimes in Vacaville was arrested after a high-speed chase that ended in the crash on Tuesday.

    The Solano County Sheriff’s Office says a white Chrysler 200 was reported stolen out of Suisun City on Monday. At some point on Tuesday, Vacaville police officers spotted the car and tried to pull it over, but they had to break off their chase after it got dangerous.

    Later in the afternoon, a Solano County sheriff’s detective spotted the car again in Fairfield. Deputies converged on the car, which tried to speed away onto Highway 12.

    The chase reached speeds of up to 110 mph, deputies say, with the suspect eventually crashing near the Highway 12 and Interstate 80 transition road.

    The driver – 21-year-old Fairfield resident Gustavo Ibarra – tried to run but was quickly arrested.

    Deputies say Ibarra has been arrested four times in the past four months in connection to possession of a stolen motor vehicle. He’s also facing charges of recklessly evading law enforcement.

    Several items believed to have been stolen in recently vehicle burglaries in the area were found in the car, deputies say.

    A ridiculously beautiful BMW R100 The 'Good Ghost' is an amazing BMW R100 project currently being featured on BikeEXIF.

    DIRK OEHLERKING HAS a portfolio of incredible builds, but there are two machines that stand out. They are the White Phantom and Black Phantom—two classic BMW boxers, with exquisite hand-formed bodywork and an unusual art deco vibe.

    Dirk refers to his Phantoms as "two that belong together, like Yin and Yang." But those two have now become three, as another Phantom rolls out of the Kingston Custom workshop in Gelsenkirchen. The 'Good Ghost' is a remarkable build that takes cues from its siblings, but elevates the style to dizzying new heights.

    UC Davis Health announced Wednesday that it hopes to enroll as many as 200 people from the greater Sacramento metropolitan area in the clinical trial that involves roughly 30,000 people worldwide. The trial is in partnership Pfizer and BioNTech, who have developed a COVID-19 vaccine candidate.

    UC Davis Medical Center

    The Sacramento area was selected, in part, because of UC Davis Health’s ability to reach minority communities quickly. Sacramento is the third most ethnically diverse city in America, according to U.S. News & World Report. Stockton is number one.

    “We are uniquely positioned to help with a possible breakthrough due to our clinical  trial s expertise, ability to recruit for clinical  trial s quickly, and track record of outreach to minority communities,” said David Lubarsky, vice chancellor of human health sciences and chief executive officer for  UC   Davis Health.

    UC Davis Health says ideal candidates for the study are those who are between 18 and 85, at risk of being infected with COVID-19 such as health care employees; restaurant and retail store employees who work around lots of people; and essential workers who spend a lot of time outside their homes.

    People from ethnic and racial groups disproportionately affected by getting COVID-19, such as Latinos and Blacks, are especially encouraged to participate.

    The research trial, known as a phase 2/3 study, seeks to determine the efficacy and side effects of a single nucleoside-modified messenger RNA (modRNA) candidate from their BNT162 mRNA-based vaccine program. The vaccine candidate has undergone rigorous evaluation in the United States and Germany and has previously shown significant positive results, according to UC Davis Health.

    “ UC   Davis  and our research group are pleased to be part of this global  trial , which is a testament to our long history of working with our pharmaceutical partners to improve the lives of not only our patients, but people around the world,” Albertson said.

    “Although there are a number of COVID-19 vaccine candidates worldwide, this one differs because it utilizes a novel modified mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid), which includes a piece of the genetic code of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19,” Haczku said. “We are very excited, as this is the first time in history that mRNA-based vaccines are used against an infectious disease. Based on the promising results of preliminary  trial s, we expect to see protection of vaccinated individuals against COVID-19,” Haczku said.

    The goal of the trial is to prevent COVID-19 in those who have not been infected by SARS-CoV-2 prior to immunization and preventing COVID-19 regardless of whether participants have previously been infected by SARS-CoV-2. The secondary goal is preventing severe COVID-19 in those groups.

    If the vaccine candidate’s success continues, Pfizer and BioNTech have stated they are on track to seek regulatory review as early as October. If regulatory authorization or approval is obtained, the companies plan to supply up to 100 million doses by the end of 2020 and approximately 1.3 billion doses by the end of 2021.
