Durbin Statement on Reported Abuses by Special Counsel Durham
SPRINGFIELD – U.S.
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chair of the Senate Judiciary
Committee, today released the following statement regarding a bombshell New
York Timesreport about alleged misconduct by Special
Counsel John Durham:
about abuses in Special Counsel Durham’s investigation—so outrageous that even
his longtime colleagues quit in protest—are but one of many instances where
former President Trump and his allies weaponized the Justice Department.
Department should work on behalf of the American people, not for the personal
benefit of any president. As we wait for the results of ongoing internal
reviews, the Senate Judiciary Committee will do its part and take a hard look
at these repeated episodes, and the regulations and policies that enabled them,
to ensure such abuses of power cannot happen again.”
