John Durham has reportedly issued more subpoenas in his investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe.
According to a new report by CNN, one of the said subpoenas has gone to a law firm with ties to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. The move is being is interpreted as “an indication that Durham could be trying to build a broader criminal case, according to people briefed on the matter.”
Durham is said to be looking into what role influence the Democratic machinery may have exerted in trying to allege that then-candidate Donald Trump had been compromised by Russia.
In 2016, Perkins Coie’s clients reportedly included the Clinton campaign as well as the Democratic National Committee. In addition, the firm hired–on behalf of the Clinton campaign–the research company that paid for the so-called “dossier” from former British spy Christopher Steele. It was that dossier that jump started the involvement of the FBI, which led to the wiretapping of Carter Page’s phone.
Durham has been investigating the issue for two years and thus far, little information has materialized. Nonetheless, in an interview with Sara Carter, Rep. Devin Nunes warned over the summer, that the report was coming and that some people “would go to prison.”
