U.S. Attorney John Durham has been making some decent progress in his investigation into the Russian Hoax and the FISA warrants, and that is why Democrats in Congress are starting to get nervous.
Rep. Jerry Nadler is even trying to wiggle his way into the investigation.
Nadler wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr late last week demanding documents and interviews with 15 officials that have some knowledge of cases of personal interest to President Donald Trump.
In a four-page letter, Nadler said,
“The Judiciary Committee needs to examine a range of recent actions that smack of political interference, including the Department’s withdrawal of the Roger Stone sentencing recommendation; intervening in the handling of the Michael Flynn prosecution; overruling the decision to relocate Paul Manafort to Rikers Island; opening investigations into career officials involved in the Russia investigation; and a series of controversial interventions into sensitive antitrust matters.”
“Our democracy is founded on the notion that no one is above the law, and strict adherence to the rule of law has separated us from all other nations. Attorneys General have supported this principle on a bipartisan basis throughout our history, but that principle is now under assault. There is also a long history of Attorneys General cooperating in oversight inquiries led by both Democrats as well as Republicans, and given the stakes for our nation, we expect Attorney General Barr’s full cooperation here.”
Out of the 15 officials, Nadler would like to interview Durham was one of them. Barr has until March 13th to reply “given the urgent and serious nature of these requests.”
Durham, a top prosecutor in Connecticut, was on the list of officials. Nadler asked that Barr respond by March 13 "given the urgent and serious nature of these requests."
A spokesperson for Durham declined to comment and referred the Washington Examiner to the Justice Department's public affairs office. The DOJ did not immediately return a request for comment.
Trump gave Barr “full and complete authority to declassify information” in the "investigation of the investigators" last year. Durham was assigned to review possible misconduct by federal law enforcement and intelligence officials during the counterintelligence investigation into Trump's 2016 campaign by Barr, who said in the spring that "some of the facts" surrounding the inquiry "don't hang together with the official explanations of what happened." Following the DOJ watchdog’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act report, Barr said he told Durham to focus just as much on the FBI’s actions after Trump’s election in November 2016 as before it.
House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes said at CPAC on Friday, “I have faith that Durham is going to get to the bottom of this. I really do.”
This is exactly why Nadler is worried. He knows that Durham will get to the bottom of it, too.
Nadler is afraid of what Durham will find, which is why he's trying to wiggle his way into the investigation any way he can.
