Quietness of Durham investigation provokes concern about seriousness

In May 2019, then-Attorney General Bill Barr tasked United States Attorney John Durham with uncovering the origins of the infamous Trump–Russia collusion probe.

Fox News later revealed in October 2019 that Durham’s inquiry had morphed into a criminal investigation. However, there has been little in the way of new developments since — and many on the right, including former President Donald Trump himself, are extremely dissatisfied with the results so far.

Tom Fitton, who serves as president of the conservative group Judicial Watch, expressed concern over the cost of Durham’s investigation, according to The Washington Times.

Durham’s team only spent $1.5 million in the first six months of its investigation — just 25% of the amount that former special counsel Robert Mueller’s operation spent over the same time frame investigating what turned out to be a complete hoax.

“The resting state of an office”

According to Fitton, the relatively low number “demonstrates what I think observers have already concluded: the investigation is low energy, and he’s disinterested in getting to the bottom of the worst government corruption scandal in government history.”

Instead of an active investigation, Fitton believes that amount of money spent suggests that Durham was presiding over “the resting state of an office.”

Fitton isn’t alone in his doubts about the efficacy of Durham’s undertaking.

“Where’s Durham?” Trump said in March, according to Fox News. “Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?”

Sources say Durham remains at work

Still, Fox cited anonymous sources within the Department of Justice who expressed confidence that Durham was focused on the task at hand.

While one unnamed figure acknowledged the investigation has been “dead quiet,” the individual remained convinced that work remains “ongoing.”

Another source opined that Durham is “is not the kind of guy to be idle,” calling him “a very diligent, hardworking, serious guy” who “wouldn’t stay in that job a minute longer than he has to.”

Durham’s investigation has thus far produced only one criminal conviction, that of former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith, who pleaded guilty last year to one count of making a false statement. He was sentenced to 12 months of probation and 400 hours of community service.

  8. Not one comment about the article, only scanners trying to get money from people that don’t have it to lose.
    Why do you allow this!

  9. What do all these advertisements of online “jobs” have to do with the subjects
    of any of these articles? They should be put in their own category somewhere else under their correct heading such as “Online Job Reviews.”

    No one reading an interesting article wants to suddenly have to read these
    advertisements about a totally different subject. They are becoming increasingly intrusive and irritating.

  10. Please stop these people from commenting on their stupid jobs. When I read an article about something I am interested in, and want to read the comments on the article, I can’t even read those comments for all the ones posting about how much money they make. Who cares about the money they make. They need to get a real job, then they can brag about it!

  11. Durham is just like Bill Barr. They are both useless pieces of crap, who try to act like they’re tough! They are big nothings!

  12. I would like to know who suggests or picks these people like Durham, the first guy and Barr. Are they suggested to Trump by republicans, rinos or democrats. How do we end of with the democrats on these commissions. If they are recommended to Trump then those people need to be removed from Trump and Trump needs to accept names from republicans he can trust and if it turns out he can’t trust them than a rino is exposed. We find out that the first guy turned out to be radical democrat who convicted in his state three innocent men to cover up for someone who was an informant with criminal status. One of the innocent men died in jail. The state the committee investigator came from hates the guy and he’s doing major against republicans investigations in our capitol. Durham had a democrat background and now it comes out so does Barr. How was Trump convinced to accept these crooked American law people.

  13. I think there is so much corruption in Dc that even those that appear untouched are also tied to some corruption. So much so that they cannot operate truthfully and without bias. Such appears to be the case with Barr and Durham. Very sad state of affairs for our country. The swamp in DC needs to be completely cleaned out. Dems and Repubs.

  14. Google won’t allow my comment but all these people spouting off by their income. He is like part of a jury. He may see the crime and others at work say no, no, no that information will destroy us and we can’t let that out and so these people are let go to those who are continuing to destroy, loudly accuse others of what they are doing and still doing seeing us as the blame. Why are we so weak and can’t stand up for the truth? As one that fell in that trap once I would never back down again because the truth must prevail for the good of all of us even if some are set on fire because they are continuing to set fire on “we the people”. (He had one woman quit because she didn’t agree with him so what was the disagreement?)
