Ranking member of the powerful House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes told me on The Sara Carter Show podcast that he still expects Justice Department Special Counsel John Durham to release a damaging report on the FBI’s debunked investigation into former President Donald Trump and Russia. He also expects it will lead to prison sentences for some former senior Obama officials.
Nunes is one of the few members of the Republican Party that still believe justice will be served. He laid out his reasons on The Sara Carter Show and said he hasn’t given up faith in Durham’s investigation despite the enormous speculation that the Durham investigation will fail to deliver justice.
Many supporters of Trump, including the former President himself, have already began questioning the legitimacy of the Durham’s probe and whether or not any action would be taken by the Special Counsel in his investigation.
Durham resigned in February from his position as the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut but he remained the special counsel on the Justice Department’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. Durham was appointed in October by then-Attorney General William Barr to serve as special counsel to investigate the origins of the FBI’s unscrupulous investigation into Trump.
Over the past four year, numerous FBI officials under President Obama’s watch were fired for their involvement in the Trump probe. That probe was mainly led by Nunes’ intensive and all-encompassing investigation during his tenure as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. The probe centered on investigating the malfeasance of senior Obama officials in the bureau and in Obama’s executive branch that targeted Trump.
Nunes understands the difficult task faced by Durham who is up against some of the worlds best trained intelligence officials and powerful bureaucracies. And the fight for Nunes isn’t over, he is been asked to head the investigation into the alleged unmasking by the NSA of Fox News television host Tucker Carlson.
Several weeks ago, Carlson disclosed that the National Security Agency was monitoring his communications to Russian officials as his team was trying to coordinate a possible interview with President Vladimir Putin. An alleged whistleblower, with direct knowledge of the NSA spying, informed Carlson that his communications had been delivered to a major news outlet in Washington D. C. in an attempt to discredit him.
“As you know, the Republican conference has asked me to investigate this,” he said. “You know, I’d like to get back to the days when I was just dealing with foreign threats, and looking at what’s happening in Cuba, looking at what Putin’s doing, looking at what the Chinese are doing. But I’m always getting rolled back into this because the the Democrats in this country have weaponized our institutions over the last five, six years.”
However, many Americans closely following these investigations have been disheartened by the DOJ’s failure to prosecute those responsible for trampling the Constitution and spying illegally against political opponents. I asked Nunes on The Sara Carter Show, how can we trust that there will be any accountability against those who broke the law.
