    The federal prosecutor appointed by Attorney General William P. Barr to review whether Obama-era officials improperly requested the identities of individuals whose names were redacted in intelligence documents has completed his work without finding any substantive wrongdoing, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The revelation that U.S. Attorney John Bash, who left the department last week, had concluded his review without criminal charges or any public report will rankle President Trump at a moment when he is particularly upset at the Justice Department. The department has so far declined to release the results of Bash’s work, though people familiar with his findings say they would likely disappoint conservatives who have tried to paint the “unmasking” of names — a common practice in government to help understand classified documents — as a political conspiracy.

    Well well well, who could have seen this coming?

    The real funny part of this, they found nothing AND broke the precedent of not investigating previous administrations. That'll come in handy soon.

    You mean that another phony Republican psued0-investigation for purely political purposes is unable to substantiate yet one more wild conspiracy theory that will live on in the memories of the faithful until the end of time? I am SHOCKED!!!!!
