(PresidentialWire.com)- Barely a week after former President Donald Trump published a statement asking if special prosecutor John Durham was still alive, new reports reveal that the man tasked with investigating the origins of the Trump Russia probe is still actively pursuing the investigation.
According to CNN’s Tuesday report – which cited anonymous sources, as per usual – Durham’s investigations are going ahead but have been delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The investigation is now reportedly “arranging witness interviews” and grand jury subpoenas are being used to gather documents as of the last couple of months.
So something is happening, it seems. Though, CNN hardly has the best track record on reliable reporting.
While Durham resigned from his position as United States attorney in February, he stayed on in his role as special prosecutor in the investigation into the roots of the Russia probe. He was appointed by former Attorney General William Barr and was expected to dig deep into the FBI witch hunt that ultimately failed to find any evidence to support their theory that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
But not much has happened.
CNN said that “people briefed on the matter” – those unnamed sources we mentioned earlier – believe that “some witnesses” have been asked about how information from Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who produced a fake dossier used by the FBI to justify their investigation, managed to reach the FBI in the first place.
Those same sources also said that “at least some of the questions on which Durham’s investigators have homed in have to do with the way other FBI officials responded to intelligence gathered before the applications to surveil Page.”
It is unclear, according to the CNN report, whether Durham is pursuing any additional criminal matters beyond the guilty plea from former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith.
In the meantime, Democrats continue to smear former President Donald Trump and perpetuate the proven lie that he conspired with Russia.
Last week, the former president asked, “Where’s Durham?” Is he still a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?”
The question drew pretty huge headlines as it was issued on an official Donald J. Trump letterhead and written in the style of a tweet.
I guess it turns out that Durham is a living, breathing human…but still no word on when the results of his investigation will be made public.
