44 Republican Senators led by Marsha Blackburn have penned a letter to AG Merrick Garland demanding the Durham report be made public.
“We ask that you provide an update on the status of Special Counsel Durham’s inquiry and that the investigation’s report be made available to the public upon completion,” the letter states.
Per The Hill:
Durham, who previously served as the U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut before becoming special counsel last year, has been reviewing the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s influence in the 2016 election since 2019, when he was tasked by the Trump administration to evaluate the bureau’s probe.
Durham resigned as U.S. attorney after Biden took office, which is routine for politically appointed federal prosecutors, but he was kept as special counsel so he could continue his probe.
The investigation made headlines last week when The Wall Street Journal reported that Durham is presenting grand jury evidence and preparing his report.
He reportedly wanted to have the review finished by the end of this summer, but the newspaper reported that the target date will likely be delayed, according to people familiar with the matter.
