More details about what Durham is investigating

Real Clear InvestigationsCybersecurity experts who held lucrative Pentagon and homeland security contracts and high-level security clearances are under investigation for potentially abusing their government privileges to aid a 2016 Clinton campaign plot to falsely link Donald Trump to Russia and trigger an FBI investigation of him and his campaign, according to several sources familiar with the work of Special Counsel John Durham.

Durham is investigating whether they were involved in a scheme to misuse sensitive, nonpublic Internet data, which they had access to through their government contracts, to dredge up derogatory information on Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign in 2016 and again in 2017, sources say — political dirt that sent FBI investigators on a wild goose chase. Prosecutors are also investigating whether some of the data presented to the FBI was faked or forged.

If this article is correct, Durham appears to have something significant he can use to apply leverage that will encourage people to flip on others. However, everyone he appears to be targeting remains outside the government, though some of them have ongoing contracts with likely access to intelligence data on internet traffic similar to that they used to create the alpha bank hoax.

No more excitement until there are more indictments.
