(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Special Counsel John Durham is scheduled to testify before members of the House Intelligence Committee in a closed session on June 20 and publicly to the chamber’s Judiciary Committee on June 21 about his final report on the origins of the FBI’s probe into the allegations of collusion between Donald Trump and Russian officials ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas, posted on Twitter that the Judiciary Committee hearing was scheduled for that day, and added that “accountability is coming.”
National Review, after reporting the day of the Intelligence Committee hearing testimony, pointed out that the hearing would take place approximately four years after then-Attorney General Bill Barr had appointed Durham to serve as special counsel overseeing this case on the Russian collusion probe.
Durham released his final report earlier this month in which he determined that the Department of Justice and the FBI had not had any actual evidence to suggest there was any collusion at the start of the investigation. The report further noted that the probe was based on “raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence” and depended on the tips that Trump’s opponents provided.
On Thursday, Rep. Ben Cline, a member of the Judiciary Committee, told Newsmax that following Durham’s testimony the American public was going to be completely informed about how the FBI had lied to them and about how rotten the intelligence agency had become. He proceeded to argue that the FBI had used the Steele dossier despite knowing that it was false in order to probe into Trump’s campaign in 2016.
