During an interview on Fox News, Former Department of Justice Chief of Staff Kash Patel spoke about Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into the handling of the Trump-Russia investigation and whether Hillary Clinton’s campaign had any involvement in pushing false information to harm Trump and his campaign.
Patel argued that the first indictment from Durham is laying out a broader explanation of corruption in efforts to funnel information to the FBI in 2016.
Patel also said the sheer length of the 27-page indictment issued last month against cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussman indicated its importance.
“The John Durham indictment against Michael Sussman for lying to the FBI is normally about 2-3 pages long at max,” Patel said. “A 27-page indictment is reserved for those mob-style conspiracy cases or large scale fraud cases that the Department of Justice brings.”
“What I believe John Durham is doing is laying out a sweeping indictment so that the American public can begin to understand what the corruption was and who exactly was involved,” he said.
“What [former FBI Director James Comey] should have been investigating was the collusion links between the Democratic Party, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the [Democratic National Committee] to funnel this information into the FBI, fraudulently so, and now it’s coming to light,” he continued.
“America’s finally starting to see the truth of what happened behind this indictment,” he declared.
“The one thing that doesn’t lie is bank records and money records, and that’s what John Durham is basing his conspiracy investigation on because he cited eight other individuals, not by name,” Patel said.
“John Durham’s only in his second year of the most political scandal in U.S. history, so I believe in the next six months, look out for indictments for folks like [former Wall Street Journal reporter] Glenn Simpson, [and FBI agents] Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, he said. “I believe they’re cooperating with him. I think you’re going to see these indictments start coming out on the individuals at the top, it’s just going to take a few more months.”
