Confirmed: John Durham's Investigation Is Much Farther Reaching Than Originally Thought

After years of silence, we finally started to get news regarding John Durham’s probe into the Trump-Russia investigation. As RedState reported, Michael Sussmann, one of the shadowy lawyers at the center of the false Alfa Bank story targeting the Donald Trump campaign, was indicted.

Then something happened last week that raised eyebrows. The FBI raided the residence of Oleg Deripaska. While the left tried to spin it as another move against Paul Manafort, others suspected it had something to do with the Durham investigation.

That theory was bolstered today after it was revealed that the scope of Durham’s investigation is reaching much farther than originally thought.

Durham is definitely making moves if he’s going after Fusion GPS and the DNC along with the individuals he’s targeting. I certainly didn’t expect that given how quiet things have been for so long. I think most had assumed he was getting ready to wrap things up. In fact, there was a report that stated that some months ago. Yet, he’s burst onto the scene with a big indictment and is apparently not done yet.

Could he be getting to the bottom of the DNC “hack,” which has always seemed more likely to be a leak based on the evidence we have? Will Fusion GPS operative Glenn Simpson get caught up in all this? We can hope as it would point to some semblance of justice being administered.

What we do know is that numerous Democrat-backed groups and figures spread false allegations during the 2016 election in order to try to destroy Donald Trump. Those people need to pay a price if we are to ever rid our system of such corruption and interference.

Another piece of news involves Durham’s budget, which AG Merrick Garland all but confirmed has been extended. In other words, he’s not closing up shop anytime soon.

“I think you can readily assume that his budget has been approved,” Garland said. “We don’t normally make a statement about those said things.”

Garland added: “You would know if he weren’t continuing to do his work.”

We are looking at a probable expansion of Durham’s reach, and I’m as surprised as anyone. I really thought he was going to deliver nothing. When Sussmann was indicted, I then figured he was the sacrificial lamb and that would be the end of it. But now Durham is branching out into places Democrats really don’t want him snooping around.

Let’s hope there’s a lot more to come as this continues. Nothing will ever truly make amends for what happened during the 2016 election, but corrupt Democrat operatives going to jail would be a nice consolation.
