Skip to comments.Durham Expanding Team, Making Progress In Probe
Posted on 12/14/2020 12:52:45 PM PST by blam
Special Counsel John Durham is adding prosecutors to his team and making "excellent progress" on his probe into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation, Fox News reported on Monday.
A federal law enforcement official familiar with the probe told Fox News that it is unclear, however, who those prosecutors are.
Durham was appointed by Attorney General William Barr last year after special counsel Robert Mueller completed his investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to sway the 2016 presidential election.
Barr then elevated Durham’s status to that of a special counsel, explaining in a letter to the Senate and House Judiciary Committees two months ago that he did so “in advance of the presidential election … to provide him and his team with the assurance that they could complete their work, without regard to the outcome of the election.”
Fox News reported last week that Durham was moving "full speed ahead" with his investigation after Election Day, even though Durham has been silent about the probe.
Durham’s investigation has so far resulted in one criminal charge against former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was accused of changing an email connected to the surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide. However, that prosecution did not allege a wider conspiracy within the FBI.
The New York Post reported that congressmen have already begun debating how they want Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee to respond to the matter, as his choice to lead the Justice Department will be the only one with the ability to fire Durham or revoke his prosecutorial authority

Yawn. Drawn out until the end with zero consequences
A decade later..............
He will finish his investigation in the year 2035 with no indictments....I can’t wait!!!!
The Durham farce will be disbanded/fired/shelved/concluded day one if Sleepy Joe & Kamel-Toe get in.
D-rats will face ZERO heat for it.
says Captain Obvious . . .
Sure he is, it’s just more stall to placate us until they can have biden dismiss it all.
I appreciate their attempt to convince me that the rule of law will be enforced.
“Mistakes were made”
Durham’s grandson takes up the case!
This is just a lawyer receiving a government paycheck, trips to Europe, perks, all for doing nothing and producing nothing. Sounds like he has a few friends would wanted in on this deal, so they will likely try to milk this for another few years, and when they are told to wind it down, will quietly release a meaningless report, then move on to another easy gig.
What he’s investigating is no longer relevant. The Biden criminality is. Not that we’ll hear about that.
I think Barr made him a special counsel to prevent his investigation from being derailed.
There will be justice any day now! Boom! Bam! Bombshell! Tic toc, tic, toc! Rah, rah, sis boom bah!
Run out the clock so we don’t have to act.
What a gig, lots of money, no time limits, no accountability, dream job.
Any. Day. Now.
Trump should fold up the Druham farce with the simple comment that we already know what happened.
Insert Yawn here...
