The man appointed during the Trump administration to investigate the origins of the FBI’s 2016 Russia probe, John Durham, has many in the FBI and Washington on edge for evidence he's about to be present to a grand jury in a lengthy report.
While many have forgotten about Durham and his investigation, which has now gone on longer than the two-year tenure of special counsel Robert Muller, the indictment of Michael Sussmann, the lawyer accused of making false statements during the 2016 presidential campaign to slander then-candidate Donald Trump, has certainly jarred those that stand to be indicted as well.
Former Department of Justice Chief of Staff Kash Patel told Fox News' “America's Newsroom” on Monday that Durham's probe into the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign is a “very well laid-out conspiracy charge” against those involved.
KASH PATEL: I was the lead investigator for [House Homeland Security Committee] Chairman Devin Nunes, driving the Russia investigation on Capitol Hill and I was actually the staffer that took the deposition that cited Durham's indictment, so, I’m intimately familiar with this.[Michael] Sussman is the centerpiece for these allegations because he ties the Hillary Clinton campaign to Fusion GPS to Christopher Steele to the Department of Justice and the false information they fed to the FBI and DOJ to spy on the presidential campaign.
It’s exactly the heart of the matter being a former federal prosecutor. It’s a 27-page indictment for a lying count that you normally have about five pages to discuss. It is a very well laid-out conspiracy charge that outlines other figures involved that I just mentioned.
