Hannity: "Operation Crossfire Hurricane" is now "Operation Boomerang" 5/2/19-

In the incredible alternative reality of Sean Hannity and Fox News, which effectively means Donald, "Act II" has begun. Sean has been pushing for weeks about "investigating the investigators" and Bill Barr (doesn't he look like John Goodman? it's scary) just gave him an orgasm. In Sean's world, everybody involved is going to jail, Comey first, so there can be "equal justice under the law". So now, Sean says "Operation Crossfire Hurricane" has turned into "Operation Boomerang" because it's going to criminally ensnare all the people involved with it. It's frighting.

NY Times from May of last year:
Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation
Days after the F.B.I. closed its investigation into Hillary Clinton in 2016, agents began scrutinizing the presidential campaign of her Republican rival, Donald J. Trump.
By Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman and Nicholas Fandos
May 16, 2018

WASHINGTON — Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark.

Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.

The agents summarized their highly unusual interview and sent word to Washington on Aug. 2, 2016, two days after the investigation was opened. Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation. But at the time, a small group of F.B.I. officials knew it by its code name: Crossfire Hurricane.

The name, a reference to the Rolling Stones lyric “I was born in a crossfire hurricane,” was an apt prediction of a political storm that continues to tear shingles off the bureau. Days after they closed their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, agents began scrutinizing the campaign of her Republican rival. The two cases have become inextricably linked in one of the most consequential periods in the history of the F.B.I.

Wikipedia has it too, never really thought about the name but clearly Sean & Donald think of it constantly.
Crossfire Hurricane was the code name for a covert counterintelligence investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) into links between Trump associates and Russian officials and suspected coordination between the Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government's interference in the 2016 United States elections.

What's scary is they have Bill Barr and a conservative SCOTUS majority. It breaks my heart people didn't get out and vote in 2016, but the bottom line is everyone who's commented said the investigation was appropriate. Once again the GOP is trying a BENGHAZI! and gosh I hope people are sick of that and remember for next year's election.

This isn't official so link may go down but this is the full episode from last night, only made it to 3:26 with the graphic "trouble for COMEY?" and the crawl "AG BARR ASSIGNS U.S. ATTORNEY JOHN DURHAM TO INVESTIGATE THE ORIGINS OF THE RUSSIA PROBE"

Classic Dolly! :lol:

Here's what "Fox News Insiders" are being fed, this has gone on all month, Hannity on 5/2:
Hannity: Trump-Russia 'Witch Hunt' Over, 'Criminal' Probes of FISA Warrants, Clinton Emails Beginning

Sean Hannity said that after Attorney General William Barr's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday, the Trump-Russia "witch hunt" is "completely over."

Hannity said Barr confirmed what he has been reporting for the past two years, but no mainstream media outlets are reporting it.

"Barr admitted during Wednesday's hearing everything we have reported the last two years and that full criminal investigations into the Deep State actors in the Clinton email scandal and FISA warrant controversy are now just beginning," said Hannity.

He accused the media and Democrats of "desperately trying to revive what is now a dead, fake, phony narrative" after the end of the Mueller probe.

"The hate-Trump media mob were wrong. They lied to the American people, and they continue to lie to the American people. They perpetrated a hoax. They pushed conspiracy theories. They lost and Operation Crossfire Hurricane has now turned into Operation Boomerang. Barr will bring equal justice and equal application of our laws to the American people," he predicted.

"They missed the biggest story in their lifetimes, and we can confirm the criminal investigations of the Deep State are, in fact, underway, in a major way," he said.

He's repeated it verbatim since then. Donald watches every night. Now Big Bill Barr starts a third investigation (these innocent civil servants should be able to sue for legal fees if the government isn't paying for their defenses).

This is going to go on for months. Hannity is in love with "Operation Boomerang". Hope it's another HUGE Benghazi pie-in-the-face moment for him and the other "hate-for-profiteers" at Fox News. John Solomon, whom Sean always refers to as a hard hitting reporter, is actually billed (and in tiny letters chyroned on the slides) as "Opinion Columnist". He isn't even considered a journalist. Which is lucky since there's no journalism involved.

Barr does kind of look like John Goodman, but Goodman has already provided his impersonation of a Trump Administration official. His version of Rex Tillerson was awesome. I don't know that I could find a Barr impression as amusing without reflecting on what damage Barr is doing to the rule of law. Tillerson was just a buffoon.

Goodman has already played Barr on SNL.

What "Democratic misbehavior"?

Hillary has already been investigated more than anyone ever and they found nothing.

If the people looking into the Russian interference obtained FISA warrants, by definition the investigation could not be illegal. FISA is pretty much abuse-proof.

Conservatives have told themselves the story that the applications for the FISA warrants were based soley on the Steele dossier.

Yes. If that were all it were, there would have been no FISA warrant.
