DOJ's criminal probe is NOT news, and it's NOT a Trump counterattack on impeachment circus

Folks on the left are acting like last night's 'revelation' told us something new. It's news to them that a pair of seemingly oblique Department of Justice investigations may reveal possible criminal activities during the 2016 election and the months immediately following.

It's not news. Not new news, anyway. I wrote about the subject here, weeks ago:
Democrats and the media would have you believe that DOJ's work in the last few weeks is in response to the Ukraine affair. The reverse is true: The Ukraine affair is a preemptive strike against what Democrats rightly believe will be a very ugly account of their spying on the 2016 Trump campaign.

But wait, there's more. We'll examine what pulling up the Ukrainian floorboards revealed a bit later...
A little more than a week later, I wrote about it again:
The drumbeat started sounding way before President Donald Trump had a cordial, totally innocent telephone conversation with newly-elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last summer.

Politico shows that the investigations started in 2018. Other news sources show that the release of Horowitz's report has been delayed more than once, meaning that it has resulted in a farther-reaching probe with lots of information that will be news to John O Public.

Other news sources show that as Horowitz's probe draws to its close, a second and seemingly oblique probe by John Durham is expanding. Durham is adding investigators and widening the scope of his investigation.
A week or so ago, I laid out a case that several highly respected liberals were sounding alarms over the events that have transpired since the dud of the Mueller Report fell flat last spring:
The Trump presidency is the first to reveal a full-blown schism between the intelligence community and the White House. Senior figures in the CIA, NSA, FBI and other agencies made an open break from their would-be boss before Trump’s inauguration, commencing a public war of leaks that has not stopped. 
Taibbi outlines a set of 10 different examples in which the intelligence elites selectively and salaciously leaked information designed to damage Trump's legitimacy and credibility. Then they offer "expert commentary" on their own manufactured press. They started almost the day after Trump's inauguration and continue to this day.

This is the stuff you'd expect from a spy thriller by John LeCarre or Robert Ludlum but with the technological proficiency of Tom Clancy. Only this isn't fiction. It's really happening.
Here's former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper stammering, deflecting and worrying about the "timing" of yesterday's "news."
Don't fall for this deflection, folks. The left will try to frame the Horowitz-Durham probes as a desperate attempt by the Trump administration to fight back against impeachment. As you saw here back on October 1, the reverse is true: Impeachment proceedings are a desperate attempt by the left to get into the news stream before Horowitz and Durham drop their payloads on who did what to whom while trying to prevent Donald Trump from becoming your President.

When even well known and well respected liberals are telling you that something is wrong, listen up!

Extra point: What did Barack Obama know, and when did he know it?
