Some reports have come out implying that U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into FBI misconduct about the alleged link between the Trump campaign and Russia have finished.
The ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan says that just isn’t the case.
According to Jordan, he expects some kind of report “real soon.”
Jordan says he has been in close communication with the Justice Department, and that Mr. Durham is doing his work.
Jordan says that though he is frustrated that it hasn’t come out sooner, getting the facts to the American people is a top priority.
The Washington Examiner has more on Jordan's expectations on the Durham probe:
A top Republican investigator said he expects U.S. Attorney John Durham to release a report "real soon."
Rep. Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, reported on Sunday having "numerous talks" with the Justice Department.
"Mr. Durham is doing his work. I expect some kind of report ... real soon," Jordan said when asked by Maria Bartiromo on Fox News about the criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation.
He did not provide more specific details.
Durham was appointed by Attorney General William Barr more than a year and a half ago to investigate misconduct by federal law enforcement, intelligence officials, and others related to the FBI's inquiry into links between President Trump's campaign and Russia. So far, the prosecutor has secured one guilty plea from a former FBI lawyer.
According to sources for Fox News, the Durham investigation "remains full steam ahead:"
U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe remains “full steam ahead,” a source familiar with his progress told Fox News, despite concerns from Republicans and allies of President Trump that the probe has been dormant following Election Day.
“Durham remains full steam ahead,” the source familiar with the investigation told Fox News.
Another source told Fox News that his investigation “is definitely still happening,” despite radio silence coming from the U.S. attorney from Connecticut.
Durham’s investigation has produced one criminal charge so far, against former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was accused of altering an email related to the surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide. That prosecution, though, did not allege a broader conspiracy within the FBI, and the conduct it involved had largely been laid out in a Justice Department inspector general report from last December.
After the Clinesmith charge, Durham’s team went silent. Two sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News over the summer that Durham was not finished with several lines of investigation, which he believed were “critical.”
One source told Fox News Durham had been “feeling more pressure to get this done and wrapped up” over the summer, but said that Durham “does not want this to be viewed political,” and would likely “punt it to after the election,” which he ultimately did.
Durham was appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr last year to investigate the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe, shortly after Special Counsel Robert Mueller completed his yearlong investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.
Though various sources have claimed that Durham has haulted his investigation, other reliable sources aside from Rep Jordan are claiming otherwise.
All we can do at this point is wait.
