Trump Claims Durham Indictments ‘All Point Back To The Democrats’ 


Donald Trump heaped praise on Special Counsel John Durham on Monday, commending the prosecutor for the two indictments his years-long investigation into the 2016 Russia probe finally produced late this year and claiming it’ll ‘only get deeper’ from here.

The former president, 75, predicted that Durham’s investigation, which he was first assigned to in April 2019, will show that ‘it all leads back to the Democrats, Hillary [Clinton] and the dirty lawyers.’

‘It really has come out,’ Trump said to Fox after Durham produced his second of two indictments late last week.  ‘In all fairness, while it has taken a long time, hats off to John Durham.’

‘Hats off, because, it’s coming out, and it is coming out at a level – Durham has come out with things that are absolutely amazing.’

Trump said he already ‘knew what happened’ but claimed now he had the facts to support his theory that the investigation into whether his 2016 campaign had any help from Russia to sway the US election was just a hit job.

‘We all sort of knew that happened, and now we have facts, and I think they’re only going to get deeper and deeper — and it all leads back to the Democrats, Hillary and the dirty lawyers,’ Trump said.

The latest arrest was a key source who provided information to British ex-spy Christopher Steele for his ‘dirty dossier’ of allegations against Trump.

Igor Y. Danchenko, a Russian-born analyst living in the United States, was arrested on Thursday in Virginia by federal agents assigned to John H. Durham’s special counsel inquiry into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation, according to the Justice Department.

Danchenko, 43, was the primary researcher for Steele’s dossier alleging that Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign conspired with Russia in a covert operation to beat Hillary Clinton, and that Russia had salacious videos that could be used to blackmail Trump.

Michael Sussman, a cybersecurity lawyer who worked for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, was charged in September and pleaded not guilty to lying to the FBI.

Sussman was indicted for allegedly telling the FBI in September 2016 that he was not doing work ‘for any client’ when he requested a meeting with the FBI’s general counsel to warn them of concerns from cybersecurity researchers of potentially suspicious contact between Russia and the Trump team.

At the meeting the attorney allegedly gave the FBI data and analytics from cybersecurity researchers who thought the numbers might be evidence of hush-hush communications between Trump Organization’s computer servers and Alfa Bank – a Kremlin-linked Russian financial institution. The FBI looked into the matter but found no connections.

And the probe is still ongoing, Durham told Fox.

Trump said of Durham’s findings on Monday, ‘What they did was so illegal, at a level that you’ve rarely seen before.’

‘Now, in all fairness, it looks to me like this is just the early building blocks.’

He said Durham’s two indictments after two-and-a-half years prove that ‘those are big things that are happening, and what it really shows is what a hoax it was.’

Former Attorney General Bill Barr had tapped Durham, then a US attorney in Connecticut, to look into the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe from when it began in July 2016 until Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to take it over in May 2017.

Also on Monday, Trump teased election watchers once again by telling the world that he’ll ‘probably’ announce whether he… (Read more)
