Justice Department prosecutor U.S. Attorney John Durham is questioning personnel connected to the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment, which awarded multiple contracts to FBI informant Stephan Halper. Halper, who was informing the bureau on Trump campaign advisors, is a central figure in the FBI’s original investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, SaraACarter.com has learned.
These latest developments reveal the expansive nature of what is now a Justice Department criminal probe into the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign. The revelation also comes on the heels of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report regarding the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, announced to Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday night the lengthy investigative report will be released to the public on Dec., 9.
DOJ Attorney General William Barr, who appointed Durham, is conducting a separate investigation alongside Horowitz’s probe. Both investigations are examining how U.S. intelligence agencies began investigating now debunked ties between Russia and Trump campaign personnel in the 2016 presidential election.
Multiple sources confirmed to this news site that Durham has spoken extensively with sources working in the Office of Net Assessment, as well as outside contractors, that were paid through Pentagon office.
Department of Justice officials declined to comment on Durham’s probe.
All government agencies that cant account for every penny should get a funding cut.
They need to draw the line somewhere, conclude and pick up a new investigation from where they left off. As we see in every instance in which left wing corruption is investigated, one revelation leads to another which leads to another which leads to another. There is no limit to Democrat corruption because their liberal media helps them keep it covered up.
@kitt: That’s the entire problem; no one holds government management to any standards of maintaining budgets and using their funds wisely. If their lazy, porn-watching staff can’t get the job done, they just hire more staff and ask for more money.
Reward and punishment
