It was reported yesterday that now-special counsel John Durham is expanding his Russiagate probe and “making excellent progress.”
But blogger Jeff Dunetz makes the depressing point that it might be just more talk that all leads to nothing. Durham has dragged this out so long that many voters didn’t even know about the Democrat hoax to overturn the 2016 election until after the 2020 election (which Democrats now claim that it’s insurrection to challenge.) Meanwhile, anyone paying attention (or reading this newsletter) has long known who did what and who ought to be in prison for it.
Dunetz compares these regular rumors that “indictments are coming” to Lucy continually yanking the football away from Charlie Brown. He also notes that if Biden gets in, all Durham will be able to do is submit a confidential report to a Biden-appointed Attorney General, who for all we know will be someone personally involved in Russiagate. I would not bet against that AG dropping it right into the nearest shredder. All the work Durham did, and all the years he put into it, would come to nothing. Pardon me if I’m beginning to suspect that that was the whole point of putting so many years into it.
