When Joe Biden moved into the White House, there was immediate pressure put on all U.S. Attorneys to resign.
John Durham, who is running the probe for the Russian origins that was started under AG William Barr, has now finally succumbed to the pressure and resigned his post.
According to the report, he will, however, continue on as special counsel in the Russian origins probe (Crossfire Hurricane).
Time to Go
Biden was hoping to clear out anyone that had any ties to Trump.
Now, turnover in the U.S. Attorney’s office is very common during a change of administration, but the acting AG wanted sweeping changes, with all but one person being told to hit the road.
Durham, upon resigning, stated, “My career has been as fulfilling as I could ever have imagined when I graduated from law school way back in 1975.”
He added, “My love and respect for this Office and the vitally important work done here have never diminished.
“It has been a tremendous honor to serve as U.S. Attorney, and as a career prosecutor before that, and I will sorely miss it.”
As far as Crossfire Hurricane goes, Durham has been a major disappointment to conservatives.
We all expected a final report before the election, but we did not even get a sniff of where Durham was when Election Day approached.
President Trump was also rather disappointed, stating at the time, “These people should be indicted, this was the greatest political crime in the history of our country, and that includes Obama and it includes Biden.”
Biden’s AG nominee, Merrick Garland, refused to get into specifics regarding this investigation during his confirmation hearings, so we have no idea what the future holds or if there even is a future for Crossfire Hurricane.
