Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed on Sunday that U.S. Attorney John Durham is on the verge of releasing a report on his criminal inquiry into the origins of the Russia collusion investigation.
Durham, who was appointed to the task by Attorney General Bill Barr, has been quietly conducting the probe since the spring of 2019, and though President Trump and his supporters hoped for more definitive action before the election, Durham has been highly resistant to political pressure to reveal his findings.
Jordan is the House Judiciary Committee ranking member and reported on Sunday that’ he’s had “numerous talks” with the Justice Department.
“Mr. Durham is doing his work. I expect some kind of report … real soon,” Jordan told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo.
Durham has been notoriously tight-lipped about the process and findings of his probe into the Crossfire Hurricane investigation that alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in 2016. However, another report released on Sunday alleges that Durham is planning on shutting down his probe of the controversial investigation.
Co-founder of the Federalist, Sean Davis, tweeted on Sunday that “A source familiar with Durham’s ongoing investigation of the bogus Russian collusion operation tells @FDRLST: ‘Durham isn’t doing anything. Dropping his investigations. He’s worried about blowback from Biden. What an absolute disgrace.'”
The Justice Department has not responded to reports that Durham is dropping the investigation.
Davis added later, “A separate source who has seen the evidence compiled during the course of Durham’s investigation told @FDRLST this afternoon that there’s “more than enough evidence to indict multiple” involved in the Russian collusion hoax operation to take down Trump.”
