Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said he expects Special Counsel John Durham of the Justice Department to deliver a “damaging report” on the FBI’s botched investigation into former President Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.
According to him, the report might be released as soon as next week.
According to Sara Carter, Nunes believes a number of former senior Obama officials might face prison sentences.
“Nunes is one of the few Republican Party members who still believe justice will be done. Despite widespread predictions that the Durham inquiry will fail to provide justice, he spelled out his views on The Sara Carter Show and stated he hasn’t given up faith in Durham’s probe,” wrote Carter.
Donald Trump and many of his followers have questioned the credibility of Durham’s investigation, which has yet to be made public despite being in the works since Trump’s election.
Durham has yet to decide whether or not to take any action in the current probe, which has been kept under wraps.
Durham resigned as Connecticut’s top federal prosecutor in February, but he remained the special counsel for the Justice Department’s inquiry into the Russia probe’s beginnings, which are widely believed to be the work of political operatives.
Durham was named as special counsel by then-Attorney General William Barr last October to investigate the origins of the FBI’s now-discredited investigation against Trump.
Numerous FBI officers who worked under President Obama were fired or resigned as a result of the DOJ investigation.
According to Carter, the investigation was led by Nunes’ “intense and all-encompassing investigation during his stint as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.” “The investigation focused on the targeting of Trump by senior Obama officials at the FBI and in Obama’s executive branch.”
Sara Carter reports:
Nunes understands the difficult task faced by Durham who is up against some of the worlds best trained intelligence officials and powerful bureaucracies. And the fight for Nunes isn’t over, he is been asked to head the investigation into the alleged unmasking by the NSA of Fox News television host Tucker Carlson.
Several weeks ago, Carlson disclosed that the National Security Agency was monitoring his communications to Russian officials as his team was trying to coordinate a possible interview with President Vladimir Putin. An alleged whistleblower, with direct knowledge of the NSA spying, informed Carlson that his communications had been delivered to a major news outlet in Washington D.C. in an attempt to discredit him.
Durham is up against some of the world’s top-trained intelligence personnel and large bureaucracies, which Nunes recognizes as a challenging challenge. And Nunes’ fight is far from done; he has been asked to lead a probe into the NSA’s alleged unmasking of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.
Carlson revealed a few weeks ago that the National Security Agency was listening in on his talks with Russian authorities as his team attempted to schedule an interview with President Vladimir Putin. Carlson was informed that his conversations had been provided to a major news organization in Washington, D.C. in an attempt to discredit him by a supposed whistleblower with direct knowledge of the NSA surveillance.
“Can you tell me where John Durham is? What happened to William Barr? “How do you feel about the report?” Carter inquired.
Nunes responded by stating he expects the report to be given and that individuals responsible for the investigation will be held accountable.
