Federal prosecutor John Durham, who has launched a criminal investigation into the origination of the investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign and its possible ties to Russia, is said to now be scrutinizing what role former CIA director John Brennan played in the investigation.

According to the New York Times, Durham has requested various documents from the CIA including Brennan’s emails and call logs. The prosecutor is looking into what Brennan knew of the Steele dossier, how the dossier was received by the agency, and whether Brennan conferred with former FBI director James Comey regarding it.

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the dossier played a “central and essential” role in the FISA application to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. In his report released earlier this month, Horowitz also confirmed that the FBI did not inform the court that the dossier, which some in the CIA believed amounted to an “internet rumor,” was commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign, and was never independently verified by the FBI.

Durham is also trying to discover if Brennan privately contradicted any public testimony he made regarding the Russia investigation.

In interviews since the Horowitz report was made public, Attorney General William Barr has said that Durham’s investigation was casting a wide net by looking at several aspects of the Russia investigation.

“He’s not just looking at the FBI, he’s looking at other agencies, and departments, and also private actors, so it’s a much broader investigation,” Barr said. Durham “is looking at all the conduct both before and after the election.”

Durham upgraded the investigation from an administrative review to a criminal probe in October, but it’s unclear what, if any, criminal acts he’s uncovered.

  1. It is my hope that U.S. Attorney John Durham is starting at the very bottom of the barrel, at the sludge at the bottom, John Brennan, and working his way up to the ”FROTH” on the top, our corrupt former President from Kenya, Barrack Hussein Obama, and all of the garbage in between.
    Obama had the opportunity to lead our country forward, but he re-established RACISM, and as the wife of Abama’s former Naional Security Advisor, Gen. Jim Jones, USMC, Ret., stated: Obama staffed his admininstration with a “bunch of Chicago Thugs”.

  2. How does this happen in the USA? Answer: Because of the corruption on Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Clinton, Comey, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Strok, Mueller, Biden, and do many others. I repeat “their” own words: “No one is above the law”. Especially these people. God is the reason Hillary Clinton did not win the 2016 election. God did not want the world destroyed and He still doesn’t. God be with President Trump, Barr, Horowitz, Durham and those fighting to uncover the truth and hold the traitors accountable. Amen.

  3. Dems are running scared this is why they feel they must impeach the president and place a democratic president so the cover-up can continue. It’s easy to put this puzzle together. I pray more people will open their eyes no

  4. Everything is starting to unravel for the Dems and Obama’s cronies. Why in the world would Susan Rice write herself an E mail, stating “Obama did it by the book “!!

  5. John Brennan while station chief for the CIA in Saudi Arabia, approved all the visas for the 911 high hackers over the objections of his entire staff.
    They killed 3000 people at the wtc. Brennan is reportedly also a Moslem.

  6. Agreed! Once he turns one of these cockroaches they will be pushing each other into the path of the speeding train to save their own skin
