Special Counsel John Durham’s case involving the FBI is taking a strange turn in its latest effort, according to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s interview on CNN, the Washington Examiner reports.
“There’s really very little here relevant to what he supposedly was hired to investigate,” McCabe said during an interview with Wolf Blitzer on Thursday.
“He’s getting pretty far afield from the FBI. In fact, the recent indictment and these subpoenas really hold the FBI more in the position of victim rather than subject of an investigation,” he continued.
McCabe added: “So it’s a bizarre turn of events, and it’s one that I’m sure is disappointing a lot of Republicans.”
Criticized by Dems
“The endeavor has long been criticized by Democrats and legal observers, who claim the inquiry is meant to undercut special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged ties between the Trump 2016 campaign and Russia,” the Examiner reported.
“Former President Donald Trump and his allies have championed it as a means to rid corrupt officials, including in the FBI, out to settle political scores,” the report added.
As former President Donald Trump continues to hint toward making another presidential run, the new developments regarding a hoax Russia hit job on his presidency have become another reference point in his ongoing attacks on the left.

Along with his focus on “the Big Lie” and Biden’s failures, the former president is building on every nugget available to build his momentum toward the candidates he is supporting for the 2022 midterms and, likely, his own 2024 presidential run.
This Saturday, Trump heads to Iowa for another of his signature rallies, with his rating among the state’s voters higher than ever, according to Fox News, placing him now at 53% in the key swing state.
The combination of Durham continuing his case serves as part of a bigger picture in the growing Trump puzzle of pieces that are beginning to come together for 2024.
Only time will tell if the Durham probe turns up any more funny business from the Russia collusion hoax, but if it does, you can count on Trump using it to his full advantage.
