Kennedy and Scott urge Biden DOJ to respect Durham investigation – Press releases
WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today joined Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and more than 40 other senators in urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to respect the independence of the Special Counsel John Durham in prosecutions and to support the Special Counsel. efforts.
More recently, the Durham investigation apparently revealed that individuals affiliated with Hillary Clinton’s campaign exploited access to non-public data from White House Internet servers and other locations in an attempt to fabricating a narrative of ongoing communications with Russia and Russian entities.
“As you know, Special Counsel Durham continues to uncover alarming information related to the origins of the FBI’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. These findings include manipulation and exploitation highly concerning and potentially criminal federal law enforcement resources to target U.S. citizens, including a presidential candidate, based on fabricated evidence that was obtained and disseminated by individuals with close ties to a campaign rival policy, wrote the senators.
“The fraudulent abuse of the FBI’s investigative powers by these malicious actors has left a dark stain on the reputation and credibility of the nation’s premier law enforcement agency. We hope you agree that those responsible for this manipulation and exploitation must be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law by Special Counsel Durham. We further hope that you will support his important work until all those responsible for the fraud against the American people are brought to justice,” conclude the senators.
