Special counsel John Durham is reportedly scrutinizing British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s main source for his discredited dossier, using a subpoena to obtain documents from the Brookings Institution related to its employment of Igor Danchenko, a researcher who visited Russia in 2016 as he worked for the ex-MI6 agent.

The outlet said Durham obtained records from the left-leaning think tank in Washington, D.C., related to Danchenko, who worked for the organization from 2005 to 2010 as a Russia researcher but is best known as the main source for Steele’s discredited Trump-Russia dossier in 2016.

How long has this Durham BS being going on for?
OMG, this investigation needs to either sh*t or get off the frakin’ toilet already.
Durham is Swamp; he’s part of the problem. Reports by persons looking into his activities say he’s “done nothing.”
well, look at the bright side - Trump asked for proof of life and it only took the press a month to get there
12 Apr 2035.
He’s scrutinizen and investigaten. Scrutinizen and investigaten. How long can he do all this scrutinizen?
This ass clown Durham is trying to use this “investigation”, as his retirement plan.
Worthless lackey mookabooker he is.
So the IDIOT is just now thinking the dossier might be a key part and should be looked at?
Was there a “John Durham Sighting” today? Big Wow! Sure it wasn’t footage from an old Newreel? As a kid I used to see those at the picture show.
who, Im so done with this circus merry go round that leads to a Hannity nothing time bomb
Stay running that Kubuki Theater act to continue to fool us into thinking the Rule of Law still exists in America .
Results of his investigation will be released shortly after the statute of limitations tolls.
For as long as the money budgeted for this farce does.
Then when there’s about a month’s payroll left, a “report” will begin to be compiled stating that not enough time or funds were allocated to reach a definitive conclusion...... nothing to see here.....please move along..
Tick Tock zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Durham, like that SOB Barr is a total fraud.
This will wind up as a White Wash.
Please just spare us anymore about Durham. He’s not doing squat. At this rate any crimes he accidentally uncovers will be well beyond the statute of limitations.
“Mistakes were made.....”
