Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said any report compiled by special counsel John Durham on the origins and conduct of the Russian investigation “may not be as broad as we want it to be.”
Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, told the Sara Carter Show podcast that he remained confident in Durham’s probe, which largely has been concealed from public view.
“I’m still positive, and I guess I have to be, that people are going to go to jail, and they are going to be prosecuted for the Russia grand fiasco and the Russia hoax,” Nunes said on the Thursday podcast.
“It may not be as broad as we want it to be, but look, there are some major perpetrators. I think, as you and everybody else know, we’ve made over 14 criminal referrals. That doesn’t mean 14 individuals. That means 14 different criminal referrals involving multiple individuals.”
Nunes added that bad behavior determined not to be criminal would provide congressional overseers reason to make changes they see fit, the Washington Examiner reported.
Durham’s investigation, into the origins of the FBI’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, has been ongoing since the spring of 2019. It has lasted longer than special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia inquiry.
Durham was allowed to continue the investigation despite leaving his role as the U.S. attorney in Connecticut after the Biden administration replaced Trump-era attorneys.
Then-Attorney General Bill Barr said Durham should submit interim reports, as well as a final report once the investigation has been concluded.
