The latest from the Durham investigation which should have been completed ages ago is not good news. According to reports, Durham’s team only this month found out about key evidence that should have been analyzed months ago.
As most Americans know, corrupt Obama officials during the 2016 Election used a false document (the Steele Dossier) as a basis for spying on the Trump campaign and Administration. This dossier was a lie created by the Hillary gang and the DOJ and FBI used it anyways in a coup attempt to have President Trump removed from office.

When Jeff Sessions was removed from office, Bill Barr came in and in May 2019 created an investigation into the beginnings of the Russia collusion sham. Per Lawfare blog:
In May 2019, Attorney General William Barr tapped Connecticut’s U.S. Attorney John Durham to look into issues related to the origins of the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. Durham is alongtime federal prosecutor inConnecticut known for leadingorganized crime and public corruption cases. In 2008, Attorney General Michael Mukaseytasked Durham with investigating the CIA’s destruction of interrogation videotapes. A year later, Attorney General Eric Holderexpanded Durham’s mandate to examine CIA torture allegations.
Now, Durham is conducting a comprehensive global probe of the U.S. government’s investigation of the Trump Campaign’s connections with Russia. The investigation covers pre- and post-election matters, and reportedly has come to include the unmasking of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and the basis for the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia tried to help Donald Trump win the election in 2016. These are all matters on which President Trump has publicly commented. Before and after Durham began his investigation, Trump has often claimed, in fiery rhetoric, that the Trump campaign investigation, and the unmasking of Flynn, and the intelligence community’s assessment, were illegitimate. He has also charged that some of the people apparently under investigation by Durham engaged in misconduct on matters under investigation. Attorney General Barr has also publicly commented that some of the people under investigation engaged in serious wrongdoing.
This investigation has led to almost nothing to date. (At times there were doubts that the investigation was actually in place.)
Yesterday (Tuesday, January 25) some documents were uncovered in the Durham case as noted by Techno Fog:
Today, Special Counsel John Durham provided a “discovery update” to the court in the Michael Sussmann case. In this filing, available here, he disclosed that his team has obtained a tremendous amount of information ranging from a variety of sources – including Perkins Coie, the Hillary Clinton Campaign, and former DNC/Clinton lawyer Mark Elias.
While Sussmann has been charged with giving false statements to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker regarding the Alfa Bank/Trump Organization hoax (background here), Durham notes that the “Government also maintains an active, ongoing criminal investigation of” Sussmann’s conduct.
The Conservative Treehouse asked a good question in regards to the recent actions reported in the Durham investigation.
