Jake Sullivan has a crucial role in the Biden administration and appears to be the tip of the spear in the Biden response to the Ukraine crisis. But how did Sullivan get to where he’s at? And why are people starting to think he’ll be indicted?
It is becoming plainly obvious that Jake Sullivan is going to be indicted by John Durham.

It starts, with his last job as a Hillary Clinton campaign advisor, where he appears to have lied to officials to create the Russiagate hoax.
The Washington Times reports:
White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, already under fire for his role in the disastrous U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, is facing growing calls to resign amid questions about a suspected connection to debunked claims of collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Multiple reports surfaced last week that Mr. Sullivan, a longtime confidant of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a two-time presidential hopeful, is the “foreign policy adviser” named in special counsel John Durham’s indictment last week of Democratic lawyer Michael Sussmann, charged with lying to the FBI about what he knew about Mr. Trump and Russia.
Here’s my question – why the hell is Jake Sullivan in a position of power in the Biden administration? Were there no non-crooks available?
A tax rebellion is underway in America! Michigan is slashing taxes, South Carolina is cutting its state income tax and even Colorado is getting in on the action. Meanwhile, states like California and New York are continuing to bleed the middle class dry. They’d better wake up to what’s happening, and quickly.
The story of comedian Bob Saget’s death just keeps getting stranger and stranger. The autopsy findings show that Saget died of massive head trauma so devastating that it looks like he was beaten with a baseball bat. Now his family wants the full report sealed. As commentator Ian Miles Cheong notes:
Bob Saget was beaten to death. His skull had wounds consistent with being bludgeoned with a baseball bat and his family doesn't want people to know about it? That's weird.

The minute somebody joins a committee… they immediately suffer from committee brain. They become wildly over-enthusiastic, over-optimistic, over-pessimistic. Committees turn people into idiots, and politics is a committee. – P. J. O’Rourke
