Repost of a story from Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller:
- U.S. Attorney John Durham has reportedly opened a new front in his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.
- According to a report, Durham is seeking grand jury testimony from computer scientists behind an allegation that Donald Trump’s real estate company had a secret communications channel with Alfa Bank.
- The Alfa-Trump theory was first floated in October 2016, but was debunked in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign.
- Durham is also reportedly seeking the testimony of Daniel Jones, a former Senate Intelligence Committee investigator who partnered with Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele in 2017.
