As the political world remains in a state of turmoil, a new player has stepped into the arena to shake things up. Special Counsel John Durham, along with his team, is making big moves behind the scenes against the FBI.
Political Signal reports that the investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Russia probe has taken a sharp turn in recent weeks. Durham, a veteran prosecutor appointed by former Attorney General Bill Barr, and his team are working diligently to investigate potential misconduct by FBI agents and others involved in the case.
The report goes on to suggest that the Durham probe could lead to criminal charges against former FBI officials, including former Director James Comey and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. If true, this would be a significant development in one of the most controversial and closely-watched investigations in recent history.
The Durham probe began in 2019 and was initially focused on determining whether the FBI properly obtained warrants to surveil Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide. However, the investigation has since expanded to include other aspects of the Russia probe, as well as the FBI’s conduct in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Some have criticized Durham’s investigation as politically motivated, designed to discredit the FBI and the broader intelligence community. However, others argue that it is necessary to ensure that those who abused their power are held accountable.
Regardless of one’s political views, it is clear that the Durham probe is a consequential investigation with significant implications for the political world. If Durham’s team uncovers evidence of wrongdoing, it could have a significant impact on the outcome of the 2020 election, as well as the broader political landscape for years to come.
It remains to be seen what the full extent of Durham’s investigation will uncover. However, one thing is certain: the political world will be watching closely to see what ultimately comes to light.
