The John Durham investigation is expanding as he receives 130,000 pages of new material, with 492,000 pages more to come. In his update on the Sussmann prosecution, Durham said no less than three times that his team is conducting a thorough investigation covering more than just Sussmann.
The material he is getting from the FBI internal affairs files. This could lead to conspiracy charges if Durham can show coordination in the effort to drive Trump from office, after having failed to rob him of the election using made-up “facts”.
For so long I have believed like many others that Durham was a dud, but now, I find myself second-guessing that belief as more and more court filings are piling up and taking in a larger swath of people who could be drug into the investigation as more documents are acquired by the Special Counsel. We know Joe Biden suggested that Gen Michael Flynn under the Espionage Act. He probably attended other meetings as well. What did he know or do?
The Washington Times reports that:
“Three times in his 19-page submission Mr. Durham tells the judge that his team is conducting an ‘active, ongoing criminal investigation’ not limited to the defendant, former Hillary Clinton campaign legal adviser Michael A. Sussmann.”
According to recent court filings, Durham has gained access to a significant amount of FBI internal affairs files in his effort to uncover the Obama administration’s maneuvers to promote bogus allegations against Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. Team Obama’s disingenuous investigation of the anti-Trump allegations, called Crossfire Hurricane, relied on the discredited Christopher Steele dossier, which was paid for by party activists.
Durham was appointed as special counsel in December 2020 in order to protect the investigation, which began while he was a U.S. Attorney, from being quashed by the Biden administration. Joe Biden promptly fired all Trump-appointed U.S. attorneys in his first weeks in office.
This is obviously not good news for Joe Biden, who has been implicated in the scandal. During his confirmation hearings, U.S. Attorney Merrick Garland refused to commit to protecting the Durham investigation.
Durham reportedly now has access to over 130,000 pages of new material, with 492,000 pages more expected. It is a lot harder for a president to fire a special counsel than a U.S. attorney. It will be interesting to see if Biden and Garland attempt to obstruct the investigation going forward.
