Former Department of Justice Chief of Staff Kash Patel spoke out in a new interview this week to reveal his theory in the wake of the recent news from Special Counsel John Durham’s probe.
Patel just gave his thoughts on Durham’s investigation into the handling of the Donald Trump-Russia probe and if Hillary Clinton’s campaign pushed false information to hurt Trump’s chances.
Patel claimed that the indictment of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman shows that Durham is laying out a broader explanation of corruption in efforts to funnel information to the FBI in 2016. Patel added that the length of the 27-page indictment issued last month against Sussman indicated just how important it is.
“The John Durham indictment against Michael Sussman for lying to the FBI is normally about 2-3 pages long at max,” Patel said. “A 27-page indictment is reserved for those mob-style conspiracy cases or large scale fraud cases that the Department of Justice brings. What I believe John Durham is doing is laying out a sweeping indictment so that the American public can begin to understand what the corruption was and who exactly was involved.”
Not stopping there, Patel went on to elaborate on just how deep he thinks this corruption goes.
“What [former FBI Director James Comey] should have been investigating was the collusion links between the Democratic Party, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the [Democratic National Committee] to funnel this information into the FBI, fraudulently so, and now it’s coming to light,” he continued.
“America’s finally starting to see the truth of what happened behind this indictment,” Patel explained. “The one thing that doesn’t lie is bank records and money records, and that’s what John Durham is basing his conspiracy investigation on because he cited eight other individuals, not by name.”
Patel concluded by predicting what indictments will come down next in this case.
“John Durham’s only in his second year of the most political scandal in U.S. history, so I believe in the next six months, look out for indictments for folks like [former Wall Street Journal reporter] Glenn Simpson, [and FBI agents] Lisa Page and Peter Strzok,” he said. “I believe they’re cooperating with him. I think you’re going to see these indictments start coming out on the individuals at the top, it’s just going to take a few more months.”
The American people deserve to know the truth about what exactly happened in 2016. We can only hope that Patel is correct in his assessment and that the public is about to get the answers that they deserve.
