People frequently state on social media that they are tired of waiting for anything from the Special Counsel’s office of attorney John Durham and have given up hope that anything major will arise from his very lengthy investigations.
People’s dissatisfaction with the limited amount of information that leaks out after a rare court case has been made public is frequently discussed in the news.
A new revelation from a former FBI agent asserts that Durham is on the move. This information gives people hope that something great is on the horizon that will dismantle some of the vast government corruption that people are aware of.
The significance of Special Counsel John Durham’s ongoing inquiry into the beginnings of the “Trump-Russia collusion” probe is outlined in an opinion piece published by The Hill.
The article by Kevin R. Brock, a former assistant director of intelligence for the FBI, notes that when Durham was appointed late in former President Trump’s tenure, the nation did not hear much from him for a year. Aside from indictments of “peripheral” characters, it appeared to many Trump supporters that Durham’s investigation would not produce much and “that elites higher up the stack are going to get away with their chicanery,” as Brock noted.
“The problem for Durham is that these perceptions were providing the Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) with increasing political top cover to shut down the special prosecutor’s office as an unproductive, politics-driven exercise in futility that is wasting taxpayer dollars,” Brock continued.
“If Durham were to be terminated, the American people might not even push back much since no one had a clue whether his investigation was bearing meaningful fruit,” he wrote.
Brock continued by stating that Attorney General Merrick Garland has already taken steps to undermine Durham by repairing the reputation of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was sacked under the Trump administration.
But, he argued, Durham could not just have a news conference and reveal the inner workings and conclusions of his probe. In lieu of this, on February 11 he utilized a relatively “innocuous” court file that contained a number of bombshell admissions, therefore revealing his conclusions.
Tucked inside the court filing, John Durham laid out a good chunk of the case he’s building, and it was stunning. Durham revealed the outlines of a corrupt conspiracy by operatives linked to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The exposed conspiracy allegedly made a contrived, fraudulent, and shocking attempt to entice the FBI and CIA to use their powers against the rival Trump campaign and presidency.
Martin Walsh reported for Conservative Brief with more details:
This recent filing by Durham was designed to have two effects. First, and most important, he has now made any decision by the president or attorney general to dump him much more difficult to undertake. The last time a president fired a special prosecutor who was making significant progress, he lost his presidency.
Durham has conveyed to the American public that his probe has legs, despite impressions of sluggish inaction. He has instilled optimism that accountability in Washington, D.C., which is as unusual as a MAGA sticker on a Prius, could actually occur.
Brock determines that, in light of Durham’s latest revelations, there are more than adequate reasons for him to continue his investigation.
Senate Democrats are also considering taking action against Durham as he prepares to issue an investigative report on the genesis of the phony “Trump-Russia connection” story following a more than two-year investigation.
Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee responded over the weekend to a well-timed New York Times piece alleging there were ethical problems throughout the inquiry that led to the resignation of several staff members.
