According to new court filings, Durham has gotten access to a large amount of FBI files in his push to uncover the Barrack Obama administration’s moves to promote fake allegations against Trump during the 2016 election. Team Obama’s fake investigation of these anti-Trump hoaxes, called Crossfire Hurricane, depended on the discredited Steele dossier, which was funded for by liberal party activists.
The Washington Times says that “Three times during his submission Mr. Durham informs the judge that his team is doing an ‘active criminal investigation’ not limited to former Clinton campaign legal adviser Michael A. Sussmann.”
Durham was appointed as the special counsel in Dec. 2020 in order to guard the investigation, which started while he was a United States Attorney, from being destroyed by the Biden White House. Joe Biden promptly fired every Trump-appointed U.S. attorney in his first weeks of being in office.
This is obviously not great news for Joe Biden, who was implicated in the scandal. During his confirmation hearings, United States Attorney Merrick Garland would not commit to guarding the Durham investigation.
Durham now has access to more than 130,000 pages of fresh material, with 492,000 additional pages expected. It is much harder for a president to get rid of a special counsel than a United States attorney. It will be interesting to watch and see if Garland and Biden attempt to obstruct the ongoing investigation as it goes forward.
This comes at a time when Biden’s approval has shrunk down to nothing and the public turns on him at a rapid pace. A scandal of this magnitude would undoubtedly ruin the Biden administration and pave the wave for Trump to easily return.
Trump has not yet officially announced his return to politics or that he will run for president in 2024, but with the rallies he is having many people say it is a very real possibility that 2024 will feature a return of MAGA.
