Buzz surrounding U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins into the Russia collusion investigation is growing, and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows announced on Sunday that he “expects indictments” from Durham, and that “it’s time that people go to jail.”
The Obama administration’s attempt to undermine the legitimacy of Trump’s 2016 victory is unraveling before our eyes, and the results of Durham’s probe have never been so highly anticipated.
Meadows appeared on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo and discussed the progress of Durham’s investigation. Durham has been nearly completely silent during the course of the investigation, with other Department of Justice officials occasionally weighing in to give brief updates.
Top Justice Department Spokeswoman Kerri Kupec told Fox News last week that the American people can expect a report from Durham by the end of the summer, though she did not give any indication whether or not Durham will issue any indictments.
“There is a story to be told there. The American people deserve resolution, and frankly, justice deserves resolution,” Kupec told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer, adding that “we expect to see a report by the end of the summer.”
Meadows, who was a member of the House Oversight Committee during ex-special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, weighed in on what he believes should be the outcome of the probe.
“I think the American people expect indictments, I know I expect indictments based on the evidence I’ve seen. [Senate Judiciary chairman] Lindsey Graham did a good job in getting that out,” Meadows told Bartiromo.
“We know that they not only knew that there wasn’t a case, but they continued to investigate and spy – and yes, I use the word ‘spy’ – on Trump campaign officials, and actually even doing things when this president was sworn in and after that, and doing it in an inappropriate manner.”
The truth comes out
The Trump administration and GOP-controlled Senate has made major strides in declassifying and releasing documents related to the Mueller investigation and the now-debunked Steele dossier, a document compiled by ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele which reportedly paid a key role in the Russia collusion investigation.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (D-SC) released documents on Friday that proves that the Obama administration’s FBI used Steele’s dossier to launch an investigation into former Trump operative Carter Page while omitting information that undermined Steele’s credibility.
Meadows continued, “you’re going to see a couple of other documents come out in the coming days that will suggest that not only was the campaign spied on, but the FBI did not act appropriately as they were investigating.”
“It’s all starting to unravel, and I tell you, it’s time that people go to jail and people are indicted,” Meadows declared.
