This is really something….
Not sure what to make of this yet.
I don’t know.
But I do know that it would have been very easy for Merrick Garland and the Biden Regime to just “defund” and shutdown Durham.
But it hasn’t happened.
In fact, he is fully funded to continue.
Take a look:

Watch it for yourself here.
Short clip on Rumble:
Fox News had more details:
Special Counsel John Durham is “still in action” investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday.
During testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Thursday, Garland was asked about the status of Durham’s now years-long probe.
Garland said the special counsel is “still in action.”
“I think you can readily assume that his budget has been approved,” Garland said. “We don’t normally make a statement about those said things.”
Garland added: “You would know if he weren’t continuing to do his work.”
Former Attorney General Bill Barr appointed then-U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham in 2019 to investigate the origins of the FBI’s original Russia probe, or Crossfire Hurricane, which began in July 2016, through the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in May 2017, shortly after Mueller completed his years-long investigation into whether his campaign colluded or coordinated with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Mueller’s investigation yielded no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 election, though the question of whether Trump obstructed justice was left open in the final report.
In August 2020, Durham charged former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith with making a false statement –the first criminal case arising from his probe. Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation.
Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that he was “not a source” for another government agency. Page has said he was a source for the CIA. The DOJ relied on that assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to eavesdrop on Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
