U.S. Attorney John Durham is apparently negotiating with individuals on guilty pleas in the Russia collusion scandal.
Durham was appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr last year to investigate the origins of the Russia scandal. It was alleged for two years that members of President Trump’s inner circle colluded with Russian intelligence officials to rig the 2016 election in Trump’s favor.
After years of investigations, the accusations have been shown to be largely false and baseless. Durham was charged with finding out whether there was criminality involved in the actions of those who initiated the investigation.
The revelation was made by Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova on the radio program Mornings with the Mall this week. DiGenova was asked when the public could expect to see the results of Durham’s investigation.
“I suspected all along that Durham was going to do his best to get something done by September,” DiGenova responded. “Actually, I suspected it would be June, indeed I knew that that was the time table but the COVID-19 virus put off some grand jury appearances.”
“And I do know that they are in negotiations with some people for some guilty pleas. So it may very well be that some guilty pleas occur initially at the same time that the report is issued. They may piggyback those together simultaneously,” DiGenova said.
Several FBI agents have been shown to have acted improperly in the case against President Trump’s former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, for example. As a result of those revelations, the Department of Justice recommended that the case against Flynn be dropped. So far, the judge in the case has refused to dismiss the case however.
