1-FBI official on Mueller team said Flynn prosecution had ‘get Trump’ attitude, collusion probe was ‘not there’
Fox News reports: An FBI official who served on Robert Mueller’s team said he believed the special counsel’s prosecution of former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn was part of an attitude to “get Trump,” and that he did not wish to pursue a Trump-Russia collusion investigation as it was “not there” and considered it to be a “dead end.”
FBI agent William J. Barnett made the comments during an interview on Sept. 17 at the Justice Department, before Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeffrey Jensen, who was tapped by Attorney General Bill Barr to review the case against Flynn. Jensen has joined U.S. Attorney John Durham’s team in his review of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. Those comments have surfaced in new government documents.
Barnett’s FBI 302 was filed by the U.S. government early Friday as part of the Flynn case.
Barnett, during his interview, detailed his work at the FBI, and his assignment to the bureau’s original cases against Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Barnett said the Flynn investigation was assigned the code name “Crossfire Razor,” which was part of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation — the bureau’s code name for the original Trump-Russia probe.
Barnett told investigators that he thought the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe was “opaque” and “with little detail concerning specific evidence of criminal events.”
DML: They’ve been out to get Trump ever since he came down the escalator to announce his presidency at Trump Tower. The greatest payback we can give the Left is a huge victory on Election Day.
2-Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announces 134 felony voter fraud charges in connection with 2018 Dem primary
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced four arrests Thursday on dozens of felony charges in connection with an alleged vote harvesting scheme during the 2018 Democratic primary elections in Gregg County.
“It is an unfortunate reality that elections can be stolen outright by mail ballot fraud,” Paxton said in a statement. “Election fraud, particularly an organized mail ballot fraud scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in voter disenfranchisement and corruption at the highest level.”
Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown, Marlena Jackson, Charlie Burns and DeWayne Ward face 134 felony charges in total, according to Paxton’s office. The allegations include election fraud, tampering with a governmental record, mail-in ballot fraud and more.
“To increase the pool of ballots needed to swing the race in Brown’s favor, the group targeted young, able-bodied voters to cast ballots by mail by fraudulently claiming the voters were ‘disabled,’ in most cases without the voters’ knowledge or consent,” Paxton’s office alleged.

3-President Trump to push for Juneteenth to become national holiday: report
President Trump will reportedly push toward the creation of a federal holiday for Juneteenth.
Ja’Ron Smith, a top administration adviser, told McClatchy DC on Thursday that the president had reversed his stance after previously declining to endorse a legislative effort earlier this year.
The June 19 holiday commemorates the cessation of slavery.
DML: We call this pandering before an election, and to be honest it will fall short. Black Lives Matter supporters don’t give two hoots what Trump does for them. Therefore, I won’t be celebrating the so-called “holiday” unless every toppled statue gets placed back in its right position. If you want to celebrate and recognize history, then it has to be as a whole versus in part.
4-Louisville protesters arrested near church that offered safe refuge: report
At least 24 protesters were arrested Thursday night in Louisville during a second consecutive night of Breonna Taylor protests.
They were arrested before 1 a.m. on charges including unlawful assembly, failure to disperse, and riot in the first degree. The demonstrators allegedly broke windows, damaged city buses, and tried to set fires.
The First Unitarian Church of Louisville had opened its doors and offered its property as a safe haven to protesters who would otherwise be arrested after a police curfew began at 9 p.m. Officers blocked the exits of a church and several people were detained, including state Rep. Attica Scott, D-Louisville.
DML: Watch the video below, will you be celebrating Juneteenth? These people want to kill anything that’s white.
White people have just been threatened with assault and kicked out of the church sanctuary grounds. Almost all press were demanded to leave as well #Louisville #LouisvilleProtests #BreonnaTaylor pic.twitter.com/NK1cJVnBU8

5-Coronavirus mutation emerges that may bypass mask-wearing, hand-washing protections
A new COVID-19 mutation appears to be even more contagious, according to a study — and experts say it could be a response by the virus to defeat masks and other social-distancing efforts.
Scientists in a paper published Wednesday identified a new strain of the virus, which accounted for 99.9 percent of cases during the second wave in the Houston, Texas, area, the Washington Post reported.
The paper, which has not been peer-reviewed, said people with the strain, known as the D614G mutation, had higher loads of virus — suggesting it is more contagious.
Though the strain isn’t more deadly, researchers said it appeared to have adapted better to spread among humans.
DML: I say it never hurts to boost the immune system. I have been healthy two years straight, and so has my wife. Our secret is so easy to understand, We focused on our immune system and doing whatever we could do to give it a boost. Along the way, we’ve been around people who were sick but we remained healthy. What works for us doesn’t mean it works for everyone, but overall the immune system is designed to help the body overcome the hurdles we face from viruses and disease. So why aren’t more doctors talking about the immune system as a weapon to mitigate the impact of illnesses? Imagine how many illnesses could be avoided or combated if people were more focused on boosting the immune system.
