Attorney General William Barr has been very busy lately getting to the bottom of the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign and trying to prevent Trump from winning the 2016 election.
Barr and the prosecutor running the investigation, John H. Durham, just shifted into a criminal inquiry and that means corrupt Obama-era officials could be held accountable.
This has already infuriated Democrats, but Barr’s prosecutor is about to kick things up a notch.
According to a report from The New York Times, the investigation is starting to take a deeper look into some of Trump’s most vocal enemies.
The target list in this investigation seems to be growing more and more every day. Some of the names appearing on the list also happen to be some of the same ones we have heard in opposition to Trump throughout much of his time in office.
The investigation seems to be going after key members of the FBI who were integral to the Russia collusion investigation, with sources telling the NYT that Durham seems heavily focused on the role Peter Strzok played during the wide-reaching probe.
Strzok served as the No. 2 counterintelligence analyst at the FBI before being fired last year and let go from ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team after an internal probe found that he had sent hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Lisa Page, a former lawyer at the FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair.
People like Strzok inside the FBI should be very worried, because this investigation has gone from a simple investigation to a criminal matter.
That move would not have been made unless Durham felt he had enough evidence of major wrongdoing on the part of one or more individuals.
Durham is reportedly leaving no stone unturned in his effort to get to the bottom of this corruption.
He has reportedly issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, and talked to more than 500 witnesses so far.
Strzok also sent countless salacious text messages smearing Trump, his supporters, and making a bevy of controversial comments implying he could take action to stop Trump from taking office.
He called Trump supporters a bunch of ignorant hillbillies; spoke about an “insurance policy” in the case that Trump won the election; mentioned a “secret society” to unseat a duly elected president; and implied that he and others at the bureau would never let Trump be president.
Many are still dumbfounded that Strzok was able to lead the Russia probe into Trump given his clear bias — but Durham may be getting close to holding him and other corrupt actors accountable for their plans to take down the president.
