The verdict is another blow for John Durham. Trump’s AG Bill Barr appointed the Trump ally to find bias in the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign in 2016. None exists.
Durham lost both cases that have gone to trial in his 3½-year investigation. Durham has cost taxpayers more than $5.8 million.
In May, a jury in D.C. federal court acquitted cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann, who also was accused by the special counsel of lying to the FBI.
Journalist and professor Bill Grueskin collected the headlines from the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page for the past year. They read: “Durham Cracks the Russia Case,” “Durham Delivers on Russiagate,” “John Durham Shows How the FBI Lets Its Informants Mislead It,” and so on.
Trump predicted Durham would uncover “the crime of the century”. Wrong again. The trial should be Durham’s last.
