Former President Donald Trump dropped some hints about special counsel John Durham’s ongoing ‘Russiagate’ origins investigation during an interview with one of his former administration officials.
Trump told The Epoch Times’ Kash Patel that Durham would “fully expose” the Russian collusion investigation while calling the special counsel’s work one of the most important jobs in America.
“We’re gonna see what happens. But what he’s doing is one of the most important jobs being done right now in America,” Trump added.
“These are bad people,” Trump told Patel, “So, I hope John Durham, for the good of the country, comes up with everything that you know took place, and that everybody knows took place because it has been exposed.”
“It would be really nice to have it fully exposed,” he added.
Trump also said he would like to see the pace of Durham’s investigation quicken.
“I wish it were faster,” Trump said. “It is really the crime of the century and changed everything, including the election.”
In a July interview on the Sara Carter Show podcast, then-Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who is now CEO of Trump’s social media startup, suggested his view might be “Pollyanna,” but that he continues to believe that Durham’s investigation into the origins of a counterintelligence operation aimed at spying on the 2016 campaign of then-GOP nominee Donald Trump will bring about convictions.
“I’m still positive, and I guess I have to be, that people are going to go to jail, and they are going to be prosecuted for the Russia grand fiasco and the Russia hoax,” he said.
“Maybe I’m a little Pollyanna, but I just have to have faith ultimately that there was a special counsel created, Durham does have the power, we are fully expecting him—it may not be as broad as we want it to be,” Nunes said.
“But look, there are some major perpetrators. I think, as you and everybody else knows, we’ve made over 14 criminal referrals—that doesn’t mean 14 individuals, that means 14 different criminal referrals involving multiple individuals,” he told Carter.
