Democrats ran a victory lap after Durham’s previous case ended with a “not guilty” verdict. It didn’t seem to occur to them that, despite the decision, the case exposed Hillary Clinton and a host of others.
Clinton quickly faded from view, right as she was planning some kind of comeback. Now, Durham is gearing up his second trial—and is not backing down one bit.
From Washington Examiner:
Special counsel John Durham requested a federal court to issue 30 subpoenas for testimony in the trial against Igor Danchenko, British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s alleged main source for his discredited dossier…
Danchenko was charged with five counts of making false statements to the FBI, which Durham says he made about the information he provided to Steele for the dossier.
Why It’s Important:
Durham has issued 30 subpoenas for testimony in the case against Igor Danchenko, the man who allegedly provided false information for Clinton’s infamous dossier against Trump.
What could this mean?
We can’t predict if Danchenko will or won’t be found guilty. But we do remember the kind of testimony that came out in the last trial.
One person who testified was Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager. And what he revealed was a doozy.
He said it was Clinton who pushed for unverified dirt against Trump to be leaked to the media, when the rest of the campaign was unsure.
The former manager further linked Clinton to the infamous activity going on against Trump, the Russian accusations that were later debunked by Mueller.
The bad press that came out against Hillary during that time seemed to put a stop to a growing number of appearances she was making.
Some even suspected she was gearing up to take a run at Biden, in 2024. Now… nothing.
And that was only from one testimony.
What might come out of these 30 testimonies? We don’t know the names of those being subpoenaed, but the text of the orders is “YOU ARE COMMANDED to appear.”
These could be high-ranking people close to Hillary or other Democrats. They could be people who helped put together this “dossier.”
Who knows what we might learn over the course of this trial? We don’t know right now, but we do know one thing.
Durham is far from finished.
- John Durham issued 30 subpoenas for testimony in his upcoming trial.
