John Durham is working slowly and meticulously to ensure he doesn’t miss anything in his investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation. Durham has issued subpoenas for multiple witnesses in the investigation.
Reporter John Solomon, speaking with Sean Hannity, discussed Attorney General William Barr‘s interview with Laura Ingraham about the alleged “mistakes” made by the FBI.

Solomon revealed that he has personal knowledge that Durham has already issued subpoenas, and many of his witnesses have already testified. “I know of some witnesses that received subpoenas, I know of some witnesses that have appeared before the grand jury,” he said.
“I’ve seen some evidence of the grand jury work in the last four, five, six weeks. It’s been going on in the middle of the pandemic. And I think we’re going to get a better sense of what that looks like,” Solomon added.
Building a Case
“They’ve got to build this case methodically. and they have a good starting point,” Solomon said, discussing Durham’s process.
Based on the report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Solomon said that “we know there was a crime” which was “clearly identified in the IG’s report.”
Discussing the illegally obtained wiretap on Carter Page, Solomon said that an “FBI lawyer changed a document to deceive the court. They literally, fraudulently changed a document to deceive the court. That’s a crime.”
According to Solomon, Durham and his team “will start there and they will wind back.”
People In Power “Verified” the Lies
Hannity told Solomon that he wanted to know how the FISA applications were ‘verified’ by top officials. “What about the people that signed” the FISA applications? “Knowing that the top of a FISA application says verified and none of it was verified? What about the people who put their signature on it like James Comey?” Hannity asked.
“Yeah. And Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein,” Solomon replied. “Every time you played that Rod Rosenstein clip on your show, you’re reminded, ‘Oh, we did this right. We did this right.’ Those guys lied to us when they said that. They did nothing right. Nothing about this was right.”
“Last week, what did we learn,” Solomon added. “29 out of 29 FISAs reviewed. All of them wrong. The FBI has not been following the law for a long time on this and there has to be a reckoning… False testimony is an area that I believe Durham has been focusing on, based on the grand jury subpoenas and questions that I’ve heard.”
Who Gave False Testimony?
“We know that John Brennan gave false testimony on several occasions. Comey and McCabe lied to Congress as well,” Solomon said.
Attorney General Barr seems to agree, saying in an interview with Fox that “the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes and sloppiness. There’s something far more troubling here. And we’re going to get to the bottom of it.” Barr also referred to “the deep state’s assault on the president” as “one of the greatest travesties in American history.”
Solomon believes that those statements from Barr’s interview “were the most important takeaways.” He also wants to remind the public to have hope, saying: “It’s easy for us to become discouraged and say ‘nothing will happen’ because, outside of a few leaks from the CIA or other similar entities, we never hear anything. But Barr’s response to this question reassures us that they’re on it and that nothing Durham’s team has uncovered so far has changed his mind.”
