According to a report from Fox News, former FBI Director James Comey is “unlikely” to be prosecuted as special counsel John Durham’s probe continues to look into the origins of the investigation of Russian ties to the 2016 Trump campaign.
Per Newsmax “citing unnamed sources, Fox News reported Durham completed the CIA portion of his investigation last year and has now shifted his focus to activities of the FBI.”
The report adds “Durham had been pursuing “new and credible leads” through the end of the Trump administration, Fox News reported, adding it’s unclear what those lines of inquiry entail. Durham declined to comment to the news outlet.”
Comey said last year Durham’s probe was not concerning for him.
“I have had no contact with him and haven’t talked to him,” Comey said in August while appearing on “Face the Nation” of Durham “I can’t imagine that I’m a target.”
One criminal charge has been made so far, against former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who altered an email relating to the surveillance of Carter Page.
Clinesmith pleaded guilty to making a false statement to Durham’s team, but will do no jail time.
Instead, he was sentenced last week to 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service.
Clinesmith was not fined.
