Probe Into Beginnings of Trump-Russia Investigation Continues

April 4, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

The investigation into the beginning of the probe of possible connections between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia has continued despite the coronavirus outbreak, The Wall Street Journal reports.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr, who selected Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham to lead the investigation, told the newspaper last week that the probe will continue despite the outbreak.

“There’s some discombobulation, but part of what we’re trying to do is keep up the mission,” he said.

Durham and his investigators recently contacted former U.K. Ambassador to Russia Sir Andrew Wood, who told the Journal on Thursday that his “answer to an enquiry by email from a member of the team about 2016 some weeks ago was that I had nothing to add to what was already on the public record.”

Durham and his team previously attempted to interview former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, but their request was denied by the British government. The investigators have already spoken to multiple people at the Central Intelligence Agency, focusing on those that worked at the National Intelligence Council, and on former Director John Brennan.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, told the podcast “Just the News” that Barr and Durham have yet to update legislators on the investigation, which he said will likely continue until the end of the summer.

Spokespeople for Brennan and for Durham declined to comment to the Journal on the investigation.

    Many can’t understand why the waste of money and continued probe into Russia, when we can suggest so many other groups that may cause trouble in the voting process of America. Our government needs to be on the alert of other possible interruptions by Socialist groups or Muslim countries, as they are already a threat to America. This shutdown of America, after we’ve weathered so many pandemics before, should suggest something threatening is on the edge. Here are some hints: Dr. Fauci, and Hillary Clinton’s connection with the World Health Org. and their past supports, 50 declared Socialist Communists in our congress and a growing number of Muslims in the political world. These have controversial ideas conflicting with our constitution and have already been a threat to the public. We can verify they’ve hacked our computers, and know some who have received text threats on their phones. We know that with the new technology, the public can be stalked, so we need to rethink many issues now.

    I know N Poloshi does not care about America or the American people. Her goal in life is to get President Trump out of office and stop him from getting elected again in 2020. Mrs Poloshi has even accomplished giving herself and Congress a raise in pay and that comes out of the pockets of hard working people. WAKE UP AMERICAN CITIZENS! There has never been another President treated with such disrespect as President Trump since he took the Oath of Office and the news casters that set in the briefings on COVID19 should not be allowed to return after they brought politics into the questions asked after the briefings by President Trump, Vice President Pence, and the Team working so hard trying to get the virus under control. I pray for them and God has them in his care.

    April 4, 2020 @ 6:02 pm I think it is imperative for Barr and Durham to get to the truth of the treasonous actions of these unAmerican, corrupt individuals. Their crimes are far reaching and have totally corrupted our Republic, targeted a President and anyone affiliated w him on complete lies and twisting the FISA process to serve their own evil agenda. They need to be pursued, targeted and brought to justice. Any other conclusion is a ruse and no justice at all. These corrupt people include the corrupt media. They all should be prosecuted and thrown in jail – most of all Hillary and her sick and evil, Socialist flunkies, who are despicable and destructive to our Constitution. I pray this Country, we the people, get a clear explanation of what took place and more than likely the people (all of them) are targeted and brought to justice for all their crimes.

    Father God, in Jesus Name, I pray that those who are involved in the cabal, coup, spying on the Trump presidential campaign be indicted, indicted, indicted, iarrested, arrested, arrested, and imprisoned, imprisoned, imprisoned, so that justice will prevail in this land. Heavenly Father, Lord GOD, You know very well who they are, because YOU are OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT. I also pray that if the democrats who hate and want to destroy America will not change or repent, then I beseech Thee, Father, to destroy them, cause then to suffer a crushing, crushing, crushing humiliating defeat and downfall from now to November! Thank you, FATHER GOD, in the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, I pray! AMEN.
