Federal prosecutor, John Durham, is presenting the Trump Russia collusion hoax case to a grand jury today and an indictment could be just hours away.
Durham’s grand jury is exploring the theory that someone presented the FBI with fabricated evidence in 2016 Russia probe.
He wants a cybersecurity lawyer indicted for allegedly lying to the FBI in 2016 about former President Trump and Russia.
There’s a five-year statute of limitations for such cases, meaning the deadline to bring charges is this weekend.
Durham is zeroing in on a Sept. 19, 2016, conversation between the lawyer, Michael Sussmann, and an FBI employee, a source said. The statute of limitations expires this weekend and questions remain on whether he will have funding to continue his investigation past the end of the government’s fiscal year on Sept. 30.
Durham has yet to submit an official report to the Justice Department, but portions are expected to include unfavorable information about the FBI, two sources told Fox News. Durham has cast his net wide and is apparently looking at individuals outside of government, according to the sources.
Durham was appointed to the position in 2019 by then-Attorney General William Barr, with a mandate to examine how the FBI and intelligence community set about investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and potential coordination with former President Trump’s campaign.
