It’s being reported exclusively by Fox News that John Duraham’s investigation into the origins of the 2016 surveillance of the Trump campaign has now expanded its scope:
FOX NEWS – John Durham, the U.S. attorney reviewing the origins of the 2016 counterintelligence investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, is probing a wider timeline than previously known, according to multiple senior administration officials.
Fox News previously reported that Durham would be reviewing the days leading up to the 2016 election and through the inauguration.
However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.
Barr assigned Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, back in May to conduct the inquiry into alleged misconduct and improper surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016, as well as whether Democrats were the ones who’d improperly colluded with foreign actors.
Wow. He must be finding a lot if he’s expanding his investigation. This can’t be a good thing for Democrats.
And note that he’s not just expanding the scope, he’s adding agents and resources too.
