As you probably are aware, John Durham is the U.S. Attorney selected by Attorney General Bill Barr to look into how the now-debunked “Trump/Russia collusion” fabrication came to be.
And if you are aware of this, you probably also are aware that this report is way past due; that suggested or implied due dates have been missed several times.
Now, Kerri Kupec, a spokesperson for Barr’s office is saying “we hope to see a report by the end of the summer”.
Maybe it is just the political cynic in me, but is it possible this was the plan all along? To have this come out in the middle of the presidential campaign, when it would do President Trump the most good and Democrats in general – Biden in particular – the least good?
If so, it’s a classic case of playing political hardball- one that, depending on what comes out at that time, might well be a major element of the Trump re-election effort.
