As the dust settles from the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump has dropped a bombshell that might just rattle the political landscape: he’s revealed that Durham’s inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation is “just the beginning.”
This latest development is certainly major news, as Durham’s investigation is already one of the most widely-anticipated inquiries in Washington. John Durham, a highly-respected Connecticut prosecutor, was appointed by Attorney General William Barr last year to look into the allegations of bias and misconduct in the FBI’s investigation of Trump’s campaign.
On November 9, Trump tweeted: “Big things are happening in our Government. What started as a Russian Witch Hunt has now become a Witch Hunt over incredible corruption and misconduct by the Obama/Biden Administration (and others)!” He went on to say, “I have declassified all documents related to Russia Hoax. These documents will show bad things happening. This is the biggest political crime in American History.”
Trump’s announcement has raised a lot of speculation about what might be uncovered in the months to come. Some are predicting that the Durham investigation could lead to criminal charges against several high-profile individuals in Washington, including former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
Others see this development as a glimmer of hope for Trump, who has repeatedly claimed that the Russia investigation was a politically-motivated “witch hunt” designed to undermine his presidency.
“President Trump has made no secret of his desire to see those responsible for the Russia investigation held to account,” said political commentator Sean Hannity. “This news could be a game-changer, and it could have far-reaching implications for the future of the Democratic Party.”
It remains to be seen whether the Durham inquiry will indeed lead to any charges or convictions. However, Trump’s latest tweet suggests that he has faith in the process, and he’s not afraid to use it to his advantage.
Regardless of what happens next, it’s clear that this investigation is far from over. As the president himself said, this is just the beginning. The next few months are sure to bring further developments and, potentially, some big revelations about what really happened during the Russia investigation.
In the meantime, political analysts, media outlets, and the general public will be following the story closely, waiting to see what will happen next. One thing is for sure: the political signal from Washington just got a lot louder.
