Once again, John Durham has had to increase his investigative team. A few weeks ago, investigative reporter John Solomon told Sean Hannity that Durham was convening a grand jury in the nation’s capital. Evidently, he gained new insight that requires more investigators. He has allegedly been keying on former CIA chief John Brennan and the alleged witnesses at the grand jury keyed on agents within the intelligence community.
Solomon says he believes the first person to be indicted will be Kevin Clinesmith who altered an email in order top frame Carter Page and make it possible to spy on Donald Trump. Clinesmith has already admitted to the crime, so that should be a slam dunk. The second indictment is likely to be John Brennan who lied under oath to congress when he said that the Steele dossier played no part in the IC assessment.
Add to that the recent accusation by a former intelligence officer that Brennan sat on the fact that Putin favored Hillary Clinton in 2016 and not Donald Trump. If true, that would set up conspiracy charges for Brennan and any other member of the FBI and DOJ who may have helped cover up thaqt fact.
CNN reported Wednesday that Durham and his team have reviewing highly classified documents inside of a SCIF [Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility] and in recent weeks added FBI agents to his team of investigators.
In recent weeks Durham has added to his team of investigators who operate in Connecticut and Washington, DC, including FBI agents and the chief of the violent crimes and narcotics section in the US Attorney’s Office in Washington, Anthony Scarpelli, people familiar with the probe said.
Durham’s focus appears to have turned toward decisions made by top officials overseeing the intelligence analysis of Russian election interference efforts in 2016, and particularly the leadership of then-CIA director John Brennan and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, according to more than a half dozen people familiar with the investigation.
Durham’s investigators have asked witnesses about examining the information that backs the US intelligence community’s assessment that the Russian interference effort was aimed in part to get Donald Trump elected, a person familiar with the matter said.
US Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News host Laura Ingraham a couple weeks ago there was ‘no basis’ for the FBI’s ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation into then-candidate Donald Trump.
Barr said what happened to Trump was one of the greatest travesties in American history.
Even more alarming was the pattern of events after the campaign to sabotage Trump’s presidency.
“I think what happened to him [Trump] was one of the greatest travesties in American history, and without any basis they started this investigation of his campaign, and even more concerning, actually is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president to sabotage the presidency,” said Barr.
