Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax resulted in a newsworthy update last week after one of the indictments Durham secured involved the name of one of President Joe Biden’s top officials.
According to the New York Post, in the indictment involving Democratic National Committee (DNC) lawyer Michael Sussmann, Fox News obtained inside information that the “foreign policy advisor” referenced in Sussman’s indictment was, in fact, Jake Sullivan, Biden’s current national security adviser.
As the Post noted, the revelation “marks the closest that Durham has come to anyone directly associated with Biden’s administration,” with many immediately raising questions about Sullivan’s future as a member of Biden’s team.
Specifically, the indictment against Sussman indicated that one of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s lawyers “exchanged emails with the Clinton Campaign’s campaign manager, communications director, and foreign policy advisor concerning the Russian Bank-1 allegations that Sussmann had recently shared.”
Fox was especially careful to note that Sullivan is not — at least at this time — being targeted in Durham’s investigation, rather he, so far, has only been mentioned.
However, Sullivan might not be totally out of the proverbial woods, yet, as some members of Congress, including Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), suggested that all of the Russia collusion hoaxers will eventually have to come clean, and pointed at Sullivan as a prime example.
“If Jake Sullivan was involved in the hoax, he should come clean and give a full, honest account of his role — but I won’t hold my breath for that,” Nunes said.
The White House has been pressed in recent days, especially following Durham’s latest indictment of Russian national, Igor Danchenko, on what it’s willing to say about the debunked Steele dossier and the current state of the investigation. So far, the White House has refused to comment.
“I refer you to the Department of Justice. I’m not going to comment on that from here,” said Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre when asked about the situation last week.
