Gowdy: Clinesmith indictment likely the only criminal complaint from Durham probe

Fox News contributor and former Congressman Trey Gowdy revealed on Sunday that believes there will be no further indictments stemming from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Russia collusion investigation.

Attorney General Bill Barr has indicated on multiple occasions that Durham’s investigation is drawing to a close and that the results of the probe will be made public by the end of the summer.

Barr’s statements, along with other rumors, have given Trump supporters hope that high-level Obama administration officials such as former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA director John Brennan would be made to answer for their role in the now-debunked collusion investigation.

However, Gowdy appears to believe that the indictment of Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith last month will be the only significant criminal referral stemming from the probe.

“Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo asked Gowdy to weigh in on the speculation surrounding Durham’s interview of Brennan last month. Brennan issued a statement after the meeting claiming that Durham confirmed that he is not a target of the investigation.

Gowdy replied:

My experience as a prosecutor is your status can change in an instant. You can move from being a witness to a subject to a target so I understand that Brennan’s PR machine wants us all to believe that he’s not a target.

That status can change. You’re one document or one false statement away from going from one to the other.

With respect to Durham, my expectation is that he is going to access documents that [Calif. Republican Rep.] Devin [Nunes], [Texas Republican Rep. John] Ratcliffe and I never got to see,” he continued. “He’s going to access documents that the FBI never shared with Congress and he’ll write the definitive accounting of what happened.

Whether or not there’ll be more indictments or not, I don’t know and I like to assume that there will not be.

Gowdy acknowledged that it “puts me in a small minority, but I’m assuming that the Clinesmith indictment will be the only one.”

However, he explained that whether or not high-level Obama officials suffer “criminal consequences,” the “jury has a chance in November of 2020 to weigh in and say, ‘You know what, you didn’t meet our expectations for law enforcement. We’re going to mete out the punishment, whether or not there’s an indictment or not.'”

The former congressman is one of only two GOP representatives that were allowed to view all of the redacted documents in both the Trump-Russia investigation, Bartiromo noted.

If Trey Gowdy is right it will fuel more anger toward the government and lack of justice system. WE all know Hillary was guilty as sin, she walks, WE all know Comey, McCabe, Baker, Nellie & Bruce Ohr, Rosenstein, Strickland, Page,, OMG the list goes on and on,, Brennen, Clapper,, and NONE of these treasonous snakes will be held accountable for trying to unseat a duly elected President??

I find this really disheartening & at the same time; not surprised. However, Americans that believe in America make their voices heard loud & clear on November 3rd, with a vote for President Trump, hold the Senate with more Republicans that support President Trump & his policies, we will have a better chance at seeing justice. Gaining back the House would be a real big win; slim, but possible. Biggest focus should be getting Trump another four years & holding the Senate..LETS MAKE THAT HAPPEN FIRST AND FOREMOST!

If there are no more indictment’s for the Russia collusion and the Trump impeachment then there is no justice in this country. The Obamma administration along with Clinton and additional help from others in the Democratic party, tried to oust a duly ected president. These people need to be punishecitizen d for their wrong doing . Like any other citizen. But the Democratic party seems to believe they are above the law.

Republicans can’t allow this to take our focus off November 3rd and getting our President re-elected AND holding the Senate with ousting as many of the Democrats out and filling those Senate seats with Republicans that will support President Trump & his policies. For four years, Dems have tried to distract President Trump with everything possible and he never wavered from keeping his promises to the American people. Democrats would love nothing more then to distract us with this “lack of justice”, but let’s put it on the back shelf and stand up and fight for keeping our President and the Senate. I really think the more Democrats see our disappointments on the Durham report, the more they’ll use it against us. Keep November 3rd, FIRST and FOREMOST and that will be our justice and our hope.

Great comment Claudia. You are right. We need to re-elect our President and put some allies in Congress for him. Swampers-whether Democcrat or Republican-need to be voted out.
That said, I will still be horribly disappointed in our Justice Department if they try and place the only blame on a minor FBI attorney and let the others go free. I have always trusted Bill Barr and his unbiased dedication to the rule of law. I sincerely hope that trust has not been misplaced.

And many many more ridiculous rumors and fake news for 4 years….This is ridiculous Adam Schiff is still blaming The President with Russian concluding!! This has to stop now! They are rioting and looting and killing and no one is stopping this! A democratic governor has threatened him. The behavior of the Democrats is beyond ridiculous!! Must be stopped today!!! William Barr stop this. That hoax of an impeachment needs to be reversed. Obamagate has been proved the Democrats did everything they could to harm his Presidency!

Do you think maybe that is what they are pushing for?? Maybe they want the silent majority pissed off enough to rise up and start a civil war. Seems to me since they keep back peddling saying indictments are coming and then, ohhh only one and we are done?? And then on top of all the Nancy BS and they keep putting off helping the people they basically put on house arrest losing their income and still keeping some states in lock down. Keeping us masked up. To me that is pushing too many people with alot of pent up frustration and energy(like me). I am buying a gun also. Things are going to get wayyyy worse.

This information really upset me. I totally agree with all of the comments listed above.
The Demorats are deplorable, but they get away with all their illegal deeds. I wouldn’t have thought Durham would let them all get off unscathed, but if he does, he must never be given anything regarding justice and truth again.

Our country needs justice. If these people get away with their evil ways, there will be no one left who thinks they should be held accountable.

This is really troublesome news. I understand that some people may not want to pursue action against Obama out of respect for the office. However, this is not a case of tax evasion or shady business dealings; this is treason. People who commit treason should be prosecuted. Period. Regardless of their office. If what Mr. Gowdy is saying is true, then we don’t deserve this country. Our ancestors, fathers, brothers, husband’s, sisters, wives–of all colors and backgrounds–just threw away their lives.

Your opinion is not based on any evidence– It’s just that if the investigation doesn’t come out the way U want it to, then obviously something is wrong.

This talk of having a “Civil War”, and shooting people” is NOT what America is about. I’m mad too, but I completely disagree with those that think separating our country with further violence will solve anything. This sounds a lot like a bunch of Progressive rhetoric that insites riots and hate. Is that what is going to bring justice to our President and the Republican party or is it a personal vendetta? This is the first time I’ve seen so much hate on this website and in all honesty that should not be acceptable or constructive thought here. I’m not looking to start anything here, I just hope that the anger for this injustice will play out with getting President Trump another 4yrs and holding on to the Senate on Nov 3rd. Otherwise, the hate mongering sounds like a Democrat talking.
