Do you remember a former federal prosecutor named John Durham?
Yeah, he’s the guy then-Attorney General William Barr assigned to ‘investigate’ the origins of the Obama FBI/Justice Department spying operation on 2016 Team Trump.
Well, he sort of faded away the past several months, didn’t he, even though Barr gave him special prosecutor status in the weeks before Joe Biden’s theft of the 2020 election was complete.
Of course, we were used to hearing crickets from the halls of ‘justice’ throughout the Trump administration because no one who was guilty as hell of violating federal laws to spy on the former president was ever held to account.
Neither was Hillary Clinton, you recall, for her serial abuse and mishandling of highly classified emails.
But according to The Wall Street Journal, Durham has resurfaced.
'Durham has been examining potential criminal charges against several lower-level FBI employees, and people who aren't in government, according to people familiar with the matter,' the WSJ reported.
'Durham was also expected to deliver a report by the end of this summer, though that target is likely to be pushed back, some of the people said,' the report added.
The Conservative Brief adds a great deal of context:
Durham was appointed last October by then-Attorney General William Barr to serve as special counsel to look into the origins of the FBI's since-tarnished investigation into Trump.
During the course of the DOJ probe, numerous FBI officials who worked under President Obama were fired or resigned from their positions.
The length of the investigation has prompted many Trump supporters to lose hope in the DOJ's ability to prosecute those responsible for the probe if it is proven to have been manufactured as a political attack on Trump without any basis in reality.
This is certainly along the lines of “the boy who cried wolf.”
But hey, at least we know there might be a report coming sometime soon.
We’ll try not to hold our breath that someone will actually be held accountable and prosecuted by Biden’s DOJ.
We just thought you’d like to know the latest on the Durham Affair.
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
