John Durham investigation is over…

WASHINGTON — When John Durham was assigned by the Justice Department in 2019 to examine the origins of the investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, President Donald Trump and his supporters expressed a belief that the inquiry would prove that a “deep state” conspiracy including top Obama-era officials had worked to sabotage him.

 

Now Durham appears to be winding down his three-year inquiry without anything close to the results Trump was seeking. The grand jury that Durham has recently used to hear evidence has expired, and while he could convene another, there are currently no plans to do so, three people familiar with the matter said.

 

Durham and his team are working to complete a final report by the end of the year, they said, and one of the lead prosecutors on his team is leaving for a job with a prominent law firm.

 

Over the course of his inquiry, Durham has developed cases against two people accused of lying to the FBI. The recent developments suggest that the chances of any more indictments are remote.

 

After Durham’s team completes its report, it will be up to Attorney General Merrick Garland to decide whether to make its findings public. The report will be Durham’s opportunity to present any evidence or conclusions that challenge the Justice Department’s basis for opening the investigation in 2016.

 

The Justice Department declined to comment.

 

Durham and his team used a grand jury in Washington to indict Michael Sussmann, a prominent cybersecurity lawyer with ties to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign. Sussmann was indicted last year on a charge of making a false statement to the FBI at a meeting in which he shared a tip about potential connections between computers associated with Trump and a Kremlin-linked Russian bank.

 

Sussmann was acquitted of that charge at trial in May.

 

A grand jury based in the Eastern District of Virginia last year indicted a Russia analyst who had worked with Christopher Steele, a former British spy who was the author of a dossier of rumors and unproven assertions about Trump. The analyst, Igor Danchenko, who is accused of lying to federal investigators, goes on trial next month in Alexandria, Virginia.

 

In the third case, Durham’s team negotiated a plea deal with an FBI lawyer whom an inspector general had accused of doctoring an email used in preparation for a wiretap renewal application.

 

The plea deal resulted in no prison time.

 

Trump and his allies have long hoped that Durham would prosecute former FBI and intelligence officials responsible for the Russia investigation, known as Crossfire Hurricane. Trump has described the investigation as a witch hunt and accused the FBI of spying on his presidential campaign.

It may be, that the Investigation Phase is over…and the Prosecution Phase begins in October!

The later posts by Q and the entire QAnon and other grifter / PAYtriot movements were a psyop by the Deep State. Most of these “heroes” were nowhere to be found in 2017 and 2018. Most people who follow “Q” are really following the infiltrators of QAnon and don’t understand the difference. It is actually laughable and the fact that they need to run a counter psyop is all the proof you need that they are in trouble. So, keep on reading and watching the Fake News and sinking further into pessimism and faithlessness.

Disprove it. Q never said anything beyond “Durham” and intelligent people understand that was not a reference to a person.

The anti-Q force is strong in RINOs and Commies. Amusingly, nobody knows what “Durham” means.

The final Durham report should be leaked, just like SCOTUS draft opinions.

No, that’s to flatten the curve. Q never promised timing, only the Deep State QAnons trying to deceive the innumerable dummies.

1) Source is NY Times
2) Durham is technically part of Biden’s DOJ.
3) There are several major players in this game of chess. Durham, Barr, Flynn, Rogers just to name a few.
4) Where are the whistleblowers? Either they are refusing to come forward due to personal security reasons, or they have come forward and Durham et al is holding the cards close to his chest.
5) Devolution.

Also, Durham refers to something else besides a person. Nothing is as simple as it seems

FBI now no prestige. Laughingstock. They investigating childish non crimes like parents, garage door opener as ‘nooze’, supposed ‘roadrage’ of Trump followers when driving behind Biden RV in Texas in 2020, now the pillow guy, pres. TRUMP on some improperly stored PAPERS in his own home while snooping through melanias panty drawer, every single act dumber than the first and seemingly always caught with pants down. FBI IS DONE. YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT. Such a prestige loss is not survivable. Same CDC. so actually its oknhow stuff is going. They self destruct.

So many of you people are all depressed, believing what you read in the New York Times? Oh, you didn’t read the article to the LAST LINE? “SOURCE — NY TIMES”

I thought we were dealing with red-pilled Patriots here on Citizen Free Press. Not your finest hour, folks. Unless you are all bots, sent here by Media Matters and ACT Blue…

The article clearly says he certainly CAN convene another Grand Jury. This is a fact. Another FACT is that there exist literally thousands of Sealed Indictments that do not require a Grand Jury to prosecute, BECAUSE they have ALREADY been INDICTED. Ready? Unseal, Prosecute. That’s how it works.

If more evidence comes to Durham’s attention, and he wants to prosecute, he CAN open another Grand Jury. Otherwise, how does ANYBODY know what his plans are? Certainly nobody at the NYT knows … And have you not learned by now, any article that quotes “sources familiar with the matter” is deeply suspect, as it usually comes out the “sources” are not “familiar” with the matter, but are either stupid lackeys who know NOTHING about the actual matter, or they don’t exist at all, but are simply made up imaginary people quoted by the reporter, so he can inject his own vapid opinion.

Second time I’ve seen you post this at someone, so do you accuse anyone you disagree with of being a Q person. Very telling. I think the Durham stuff is also crap, but I never see people talk about Q crap on here. Leftists and RINOs are the usually the people who like to scream that as a slur. The same way they paint all right wing as racist and anti-female.

Source – Fake News

money quote – “… while he could convene another …” a blatant admission that their thesis means absolutely nothing.
and followed up with the ever-popular hallmark quote of fake news reports “… sources familiar with the matter said …” , usually translated as “we are making this part up”

In other words, even though he has let these poor folks go home, he would never call up a different group of citizens to hear more evidence of government corruption. That would be inhumane!!!

It was over before it started. The entire operation was designed by Bill Barr to fool President Trump and his supporters into thinking that the DOJ was going after the Derpep State Russiagate conspirators.

The long and drawn out pacifying program is now over, and those who put their hope in this very obscure character waited on a nothing burger, again. It’s all smoke and mirrors, the sewage lagoon who many call the swamp is as deep and as wide as the Mariana Trench in the South Pacific. If there were ever a fight to destroy the sewage lagoon, it would take 10 to 30 years of nothing but morally minded God fearing patriots elected to clean it out.
The Constitutional Republic can only work and be successful if it’s people are morally minded God fearing patriots. Anything else will destroy it eventually like what is happening today.

So what should we do tough guy? Go in with guns blazing? That’s exactly what they want? Think what would happen if John came out and said to everyone that this whole group of people are guilty. Nothing will happen even if he said today what we already know. That our own countrymen in power have sold our birthright and usurped our sovereign country for their gain. Who is going to throw them in jail? No one is? Our job is to wake people up and VOTE the right person in and that’s all we can do for now. We are the ones responsible for letting this corruption get a foot hold in the first place. We are too busy watching the TV or being hypnotized by the celebrities of the day or being tolerant of sin that is being promoted to our children. We allowed it to happen. When they start rounding people up and killing them in the street, than I think we will know what steps will have to take place next.

Obvious tired old strategy – hire a pretend “tough guy” to do a pretend “investigation”. And then he comes back with nothing. Then, the Dems/Left going forward say “Well, that was already investigated, and it was proven it was nothing”.
