John Durham still examines the investigation’s origins into the connections between Russia and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign is also under scrutiny as part of Durham’s investigation. The Washington examiner reported, “Durham told a federal court that he is scrutinizing members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign as part of his criminal inquiry into the origins and conduct of the Trump-Russia investigation.”

His team asked the federal court judges to “inquire into a potential conflict of interest” concerning the lawyers for British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s main source for the anti-Trump dossier.
They emphasized that a separate lawyer “is currently representing the 2016 ‘Hillary for America’ presidential campaign, as well as multiple former employees of that campaign, in matters before the Special Counsel.”
At the end of the Trump admin, The GA Bill Barr elected Durham to special counsel status in October 2020.
The special counsel appointment said that he continued the administrations even under the new administration.
Durham has more evidence tied to the Clinton admin.
Igor Danchenko, a US-based but born Russian researcher, was charged with five counts because he made false statements to the FBI.
The DAanchenko indictment stated that he lied about the information he gave to Steele for his dossier, but which the FBI relied on when getting authority for the secret surveillance of one of Trump’s former campaign aides.
What Clinton has to do with this?
Two attorneys, Stuart Sears and Danny Onorato took over as Danchenko’s defense attorneys. There is Robert Trout, who presented Clinton’s campaign members in the past. Onorato and Sears said that there wasn’t a conflict of interest.
Durham’s team said that the interest of Danchenko and the Clinton campaign “could potentially diverge in connection with any plea discussions, pretrial proceedings, hearings, trial, and sentencing proceedings.” Durham listed a few problems that could be relevant to Danchenko’s defense. He explained that the Clinton campaign and Danchenko could be involved in this and try to put the blame on each other.
. “On each of these issues, the interests of the Clinton Campaign and the defendant might diverge … For example, the Clinton Campaign and the defendant each might have an incentive to shift blame and/or responsibility to the other party for any allegedly false information that was contained within the Company Reports and/or provided to the FBI,” Durham said,
With Durham, this situation may become much tenser.
