As the media and Democrats count their electoral chickens before they hatch, President Trump and the Republicans appear to have an ace up their sleeve – the Durham investigation.
The Durham investigation, headed by veteran prosecutor John Durham, is looking into the origins of the Russia investigation.
Durham’s boss, Attorney General Bill Barr, just assured us that we won’t have to wait forever for the results of the probe. In fact, we can expect developments before November.
Attorney General Bill Barr announced in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation of the Russia probe’s origins will likely yield “developments” before summer is over, despite delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
In the wide-ranging interview that aired on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Barr said that he was surprised by the overall lack of public interest in Durham’s investigation, which follows a Justice Department Inspector General report that revealed inaccuracies and omissions in applications for warrants to conduct surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“So that has been surprising to me, that people aren’t concerned about civil liberties and the integrity of our governmental process in terms of the future of Durham’s investigation,” Barr said. “You know, he’s pressing ahead as hard as he can. And I expect that, you know, we will have some developments hopefully before the end of the summer.”
Barr is right – the media’s lack of curiosity is strange, at least if you believe that the media is interested in reporting the news instead of propagandizing for the Democrats.
But like it or not, they’ll have to pay attention when Durham comes forward with his findings. That’s a day that the Democrats dread.
