New Durham Filing Reveals Russiagate Investigation Has Much More to Come – Opinion

Last time we saw John Durham as Special Counsel, he indicted Michael Sussmann & Igor Danchenko.

At the time, we noticed that he seemed to be not done.

Durham confirmed in court documents about discovery that his Sussmann investigation is ongoing. He also indicated that the investigation could involve Sussman’s personal information and other individuals.

The Washington Times reports:

Three times in his 19-page submission Mr. Durham tells the judge that his team is conducting an ‘active, ongoing criminal investigation’ not limited to the defendant, former Hillary Clinton campaign legal adviser Michael A. Sussmann.

They aren’t just looking for Sussmann lying. The government provided a lot of information in discovery. They have over 612,000 pages — some of which have already been turned over in discovery — which shows how extensive their investigation is. They have material from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz as well FBI internal affairs files. These documents relate to the FBI Crossfire Hurricane probe. This investigation relied on a phony dossier that was paid for by Clinton’s campaign. Material that the Durham team received from Clinton was also available.

Durham had many interviews with 24 FBI agents, as well as one Clinton campaign employee. He’s also had some before the grand jury to testify, including the person identified as “Campaign Lawyer-1” in the Sussmann indictment, reportedly Marc Elias, the former Clinton campaign lawyer.

A problem was also discovered with Inspector General Michael Horowitz. The IG had two cellphones from former FBI General Counsel James Baker that he hadn’t previously turned over to Durham, that Durham says he only found out they had this month.

Durham stated that he was only informed a week before Sussmann met with Horowitz in March 2017. That raises a lot of questions on why he was not told before about the meeting and the phones — particularly when that might reveal critical information which he might need regarding his prosecution of Sussman.

But the far-ranging and continuing scope of Durham’s investigation is encouraging and indicates he has his eyes on much more to come.
