Ever wonder whatever happen to former Attorney General William Barr’s October 2020 special counsel order that John Durham’s report on the Trump-Russia investigators should be made public upon completion.
I have. I have a Google alert on it. But I get more inquiries on my car warranty than I do from that alert.
Well President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice was forced to reply to inquiries from Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Ron Johnson (Wis.) on the continuing probe on Monday.
The Senators requested answers from Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding special counsel Durham’s investigation. in a reply letter from Deputy Assistant Attorney General Joe Gaeta he stated that he could not comment on Durham’s ongoing investigation or its status.
However, Gaeta continued with, “the Special Counsel, to the maximum extent possible and consistent with the law and policies and practices of the Department of Justice, shall submit to the Attorney General a final report, and such interim reports as he deems appropriate, in a form that will permit public dissemination,” Gaeta wrote, “The Department agrees with this statement.”
So there we are. We’ll check back in a few months when it may be released on the Friday night between Christmas and New Year’s.
