After Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his nearly 500-page report showing political bias and alarming FISA misconduct at the FBI, he submitted every word of it to U.S. Attorney John Durham for criminal review. 

Durham, unlike Horowitz, has the ability to go outside of the Department of Justice and FBI to question witnesses and obtain documents. According to Attorney General Bill Barr, Durham is leaving no stone unturned by probing the CIA and other intelligence agencies. Former CIA Director John Brennan, who perpetuated the false Russia collusion narrative for years, is a target

The federal prosecutor scrutinizing the Russia investigation has begun examining the role of the former C.I.A. director John O. Brennan in how the intelligence community assessed Russia’s 2016 election interference, according to three people briefed on the inquiry.

John H. Durham, the United States attorney leading the investigation, has requested Mr. Brennan’s emails, call logs and other documents from the C.I.A., according to a person briefed on his inquiry. He wants to learn what Mr. Brennan told other officials, including the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey, about his and the C.I.A.’s views of a notorious dossier of assertions about Russia and Trump associates. …

Mr. Durham is also examining whether Mr. Brennan privately contradicted his public comments, including May 2017 testimony to Congress, about both the dossier and about any debate among the intelligence agencies over their conclusions on Russia’s interference, the people said.

Brennan also reportedly pushed the false, Clinton funded and Russia sourced dossier in 2016. 

But it seems Democrats think Durham is getting too close for comfort and therefore, they're calling on him to step down. 

Despite working for Republican and Democrat Presidents, Democrats argue Durham isn't an impartial prosecutor. The reality is, he's getting closer to exposing how entangled Democrats are with misconduct at the FBI.
