Although former President Donald Trump campaigned in 2016 on a pledge to “lock up” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Clinton remained a free woman when he left office.
However, a report this week suggests that it may still be too soon to say whether Clinton will face justice for her alleged crimes.
In the spring of 2019, then Attorney General Bill Barr tasked former U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham with looking into the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe.
In October, Fox News was able to reveal that Durham’s inquiry had since morphed into a criminal investigation with the power to convene a grand jury.
Durham suggests that he may call Clinton aides to testify
That power was retained when, shortly before stepping down from office, Fox News reported that Barr elevated Durham to the status of special counsel, allowing him to continue his work during the Biden administration.
Just the News editor in chief John Solomon noted in a piece on Wednesday that Durham is particularly interested in the Steele Dossier.
The document is a collection of salacious rumors about Trump that were compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele at the Clinton campaign’s behest.
One of its sources was Igor Y. Danchenko, a Russian citizen with Democratic ties who was indicted by Durham last month on charges of making false statements to the FBI.
As Solomon pointed out, Durham filed a motion in Danchenko’s case that suggests he is planning to call some of Clinton’s aides and close associates to testify.
“Kash Patel: There is no such thing as coincidences in these types of investigations”
“The Clinton Campaign financed the opposition research reports, colloquially known as the ‘Dossier,’ that are central to the Indictment against the defendant,” the motion was quoted as saying.
It then discusses the possibility of “potential conflict issues” that could occur if “one or more former representatives of the Clinton Campaign (who are represented by defense counsel’s firm) are called to testify at any trial or other court proceeding.”
Solomon recalled a recent conversation on his podcast with Kash Patel, who formerly served as chief investigative counsel for the House Intelligence Committee. He quoted Patel as saying that this information has clear significance, saying, “There is no such thing as coincidences in these types of investigations.”
