You didn’t forget about John Durham, did you?
After a slow start, the Durham investigation is finally getting interesting.
You see, in his latest filing, Durham used the phrase “active, ongoing criminal investigation” at least 3 times.
According to legal experts familiar with Durham’s work, this appears to be indicative that Durham intends to present charges against people…
…including people high up the chain.
At least one testimony has already happened behind closed doors.
More details below:

Currently, the focus appears to be on one of Hillary’s top campaign lawyers.
This is critical.
Because a top lawyer for the Clinton campaign will have details about any misconduct within the campaign.
The Epoch Times confirms:
The government’s criminal investigation into former Perkins Coie partner and Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann isn’t over yet.
This was revealed in Jan. 25 court filings from special counsel John Durham, who’s investigating the origins of the Russia probe that plagued the presidency of Donald Trump.
According to Durham, Sussmann worked with a group of individuals to devise allegations regarding a purported secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. Sussmann pleaded guilty on Sept. 17 on a single-count charge of lying to the FBI.
Durham on Jan. 25 said that the “government also maintains an active, ongoing criminal investigation of the defendant’s conduct and other matters.”
Durham’s filing was made in response to objections defense attorneys have about the timeliness of him providing discovery materials.
With trial set for May 16, U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper ordered the government on Dec. 14 to provide all unclassified discovery to Sussmann by Jan. 28, and all classified material by Feb. 11.
Durham told the judge in his filing that his office is working hard to make those dates.
May 16 can’t come soon enough.
Until then, it is unlikely that there will be any other major developments.
However, don’t discount any surprise announcements!
Who knows what Durham has been working on behind the scenes?
