The Justice Department has shifted the review of the origins of the Democrats Russian Collusion investigation to a criminal inquiry. The move gives the prosecutor running it, John Durham, the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to convene a grand jury and to file criminal charges. We knew that it was a likely outcome as some involved have been known to be getting defense lawyers.
Durham, a widely respected and veteran prosecutor who has investigated C.I.A. torture and broken up Mafia rings, has been been leading one of a few investigations that are close to being brought to a close, and the Democrats and the media are running scared.
They remember all to well the outcome of pressing the Russian Collusion narrative for two years, only to have Mueller declare that no American colluded with the Russians.
But now we are to see the prequel. How did it all start? Who was responsible? Who knew what and when? What were the details?
Fox News details:
U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct in the run-up to the 2016 election through the spring of 2017 has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation, two sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News on Thursday night.
One source added that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s upcoming report on alleged FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign will shed light on why Durham’s probe has become a criminal inquiry. Horowitz announced on Thursday his report would be available to the public soon, with “few” redactions.

The investigation’s new status means Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges, and impanel fact-finding grand juries.
The details that we already know are stunning. If you have followed my writing, we have known all along that there was huge evidence of malfeasance on behalf of the Democrats. It is very telling that much of it, while well sourced and documented, is never heard from the main stream media.
But as we have gotten closer to the conclusion of the Barr/Durham, Horowitz, and Huber investigations, the details seem to emerge playing this out as the wildest 007 movie ever, spanning countries like the Ukraine and England, Australia and Italy.
Check this bit out from the same Fox article:
Fox News reported on Tuesday that Durham’s probe had expanded significantly based on new evidence uncovered during a recent trip to Rome with Attorney General Bill Barr.
Barr reportedly told embassy officials in Italy that he “needed a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.”
A source in the Italian Ministry of Justice told The Daily Beast earlier this month that Barr and Durham were played a taped deposition made by Joseph Mifsud, the professor who allegedly told ex-Trump aide George Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. Mifsud reportedly was explaining to investigators in the deposition why people would want to harm him, and why he needed police protection.
Papadopoulos has suggested he was connected with Mifsud as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.
The Democrats and the MSM are scrambling. They have been complicit in some of the darkest moments in our nation’s history.
Popcorn folks, popcorn!
