[Ed. – This is what I’ve been assuming, and it’s the reason this is taking so long. It takes a lot longer to track down the origins of what was essentially a RICO operation than to merely document procedural violations. Remember: the speedy-trial clock starts the minute there’s an indictment, and through discovery, that puts Durham’s evidence in the hands of the usual-suspect network of law firms that defends all the Spygate principals. Durham and Barr have to pull the threads all the way first.]
Attorney General William Barr shed new light on U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation.
He told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that Connecticut’s top federal prosecutor is unearthing troubling evidence and vowed prosecutions if laws were broken and a case can be made.
“My own view is that the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness. There is something far more troubling here, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it. And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted,” Barr said in the segment of the interview that aired Thursday evening.
The attorney general told Durham to focus just as much on the time period after the 2016 election as before it.
