Devin Nunes: John Durham ‘is being blocked’ from bringing fresh charges by someone in DOJ

According to Devin Nunes, the Department of Justice may be blocking Special Counsel John Durham from bringing fresh charges in his investigation into potential misconduct in the FBI’s Russia probe that plagued former President Donald Trump during his time in office.

With his prosecution of Igor Danchenko, a key source in the now-debunked Steele Dossier, for allegedly lying to FBI agents, it appears Durham’s investigation into the scandal-soaked affair is finally coming to a close — a fact Nunes says shows “there’s something else going on with Durham.”

“I think what you’re seeing this week in this trial, and I think it relates to Carter Page’s six-year odyssey where he can’t get his life back, there’s something else going on with Durham,” Nunes told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Friday. “He has put, systematically, the FBI on trial here. He has showed us that there were so many people that were not just working for the Clinton campaign and the DNC, they also happened to be working for the FBI or, later, after the fact they start to work for the FBI when they knew that they were actually liars and they’re not credible.”

“So I think what is happening here, Durham is being blocked,” he stated. “I don’t say this lightly. He is being blocked by somebody within the Department of Justice where he cannot bring the charges that should be brought right now. And those are charges of conspiracy, of lying to Congress, misleading Congress, defrauding the government —”

“How can he be blocked?” Hannity interjected. “If he has probable cause, how can he possibly be blocked?”

Nunes didn’t elaborate, but implied it’s the only explanation for the lack of charges.

“I just don’t see how he hasn’t been able to bring very basic charges,” he said. “There are so many people that simply lied to Congress and misled Congress. He hasn’t even been able to bring those.”


“I think what Durham has been able to show here– remember, they went after Carter Page long before they got the FISA warrant. So, simply, this was a cooked-up plan by the Clinton campaign and the DNC targeting innocent people like Carter Page. They involved the FBI. The FBI played along with it and then covered it up.”

“They covered it up with the money,” Hannity said. “Isn’t that why they paid Danchenko?”

As BizPac Review reported, the FBI paid Danchenko more than $200,000 to be a confidential informant from 2017 to late 2020.

Unfortunately, the information the Russian national provided was largely bogus.

“So they submitted a FISA application with knowingly false information,” Hannity stated. “Is that true, Devin?

“Yeah, absolutely,” Nunes replied. “What I’m saying to you, I think it’s bigger than that. I think what Durham has exposed is there was no one within the FBI that had any evidence whatsoever to target Donald Trump or Carter Page or anyone else for that matter.”

Hannity predicted that the FBI, the DOJ, and the Clinton campaign will face no consequences for their alleged “malfeasance” and abuse of power, used “to influence the election.”

“Look, I think that’s where this is headed,” Nunes agreed. “It just seems like Durham’s hands are tied somehow, some way. Someone is not letting him bring the charges that he should be bringing right now. Maybe I’m wrong. I hope I’m wrong. This is a very interesting trial.”
