Durham Closes in on Hillary, Trump Declares ‘Big Things Are Happening’
'Durham has come out with things that are absolutely amazing'
Donald Trump is predicting Special Counsel John Durham's investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe will lead to big things and anticipates it is "only going to get deeper and deeper" as it "all leads back to the Democrats" and Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with Fox News, Trump weighed in on the recent indictment of Igor Danchenko, the primary source of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who created the debunked Trump dossier, which served as the foundation for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against the Trump campaign.
The phony dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie.
Last week, Durham charged Danchenko with making false statements to the FBI.
The charges stem from statements he made relating to the sources he used in providing information to an investigative firm.
"It really has come out," Trump said.
"In all fairness, while it has taken a long time, hats off to John Durham."
"Hats off, because it’s coming out, and it is coming out at a level — Durham has come out with things that are absolutely amazing," Trump continued.
"We all sort of knew that happened, and now we have facts, and I think they’re only going to get deeper and deeper — and it all leads back to the Democrats, Hillary, and the dirty lawyers."
Trump said it was a "disgrace" Clinton lawyers are "always after Trump."
"What they did was so illegal, at a level that you’ve rarely seen before," Trump said.
"Now, in all fairness, it looks to me like this is just the early building blocks."
Last month, Durham also indicted former Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann, alleging he lued to former FBI General Counsel James Baker saying he was not representing a client when making claims the Trump Organization was communicating with a Russian bank.
Durham on Thursday said the special counsel’s investigation "is ongoing."
"Those are big things that are happening, and what it really shows is what a hoax it was," Trump told Fox News.
"What happened here is incredible, going on for years, and we still did more than any administration, just about ever."
Trump also touted his administration after the years-long investigation into whether his first campaign colluded with Russia.
"We rebuilt our military, we cut taxes — the most ever — and regulations, we’ve done so much," Trump said.
"Nobody has done what we’ve done."
In September, former Bill Clinton adviser Dick Morris said the arrest would eventually lead to Hillary Clinton.
“[I]t might be that we’ve finally caught up with Hillary,” Morris proclaimed.
“We don’t know yet, but I’m going to prove it, and I think that there’s some chance now.”
