Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr has put Hillary Clinton on notice, warning the former Secretary of State that Special Counsel John Durham is closing in on her.
Barr spoke to Fox News about Durham’s investigation into the Trump-Russia hoax origins.
As Slay News previously reported, it recently emerged in court documents that Durham has already dragged former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta in for questioning.
Durham is clearly closing in on Hillary Clinton’s inner circle and the investigations gather momentum.
According to Barr, Durham’s probe could go all the way to the top.
“I think the question all along has been that this was a campaign-dirty-trick to get the government to investigate allegations — scurrilous allegations — about Donald Trump and then leak that right before the election,” Barr said.
“And so that raises two questions: Was the Clinton campaign developing this false information and feeding it in for that purpose? And what was the FBI’s role on this?
“It tells me that Durham has dug very deep and he has developed some good information and he thinks he can make a criminal case here.
“And there’s never been a doubt in my mind that if there’s a crime to be proven in and brought by the prosecutor, Durham will do it.
“The whole classification system is for the president — it’s his authority that is used for it,” he said of the Democrats’ new plan to accuse Trump of taking classified information with him to Mar-a-Lago.
“And he can classify or declassify things if he wants.”
Durham’s recent filing says, for the first time, that Hillary Clinton’s campaign, her lawyers, a tech company, and others formed a “joint venture or conspiracy” to smear Trump with false ties to Russia.
Durham’s argued in his filing that he should be allowed to admit certain evidence in court because ‘these parties acted as ‘joint venturer[s]’ and therefore should be ‘considered as co-conspirator[s] for the purpose of [Rule 801(d)(2)(E)] even though no conspiracy has been charged.’”
Ex-House Intelligence Committee Republican investigative counsel Kash Patel said:
“Durham has just shown the whole world what major pieces of our Russiagate investigation revealed.
“Hard evidence, emails, and text messages, showing the Clinton Campaign, Fusion GPS, Perkins Coie, Joffe, and the media were all synced in August of 2016 pushing the false Alfa Bank server story, while also all working on the Steele Dossier matter.
“Durham submits all this evidence as ‘joint venture conspiracy’ under the rules of evidence.”
