“Won’t Change a Thing”: Will Clinton Escape the Durham Probe Scot Free?

Much has been made of the Durham probe into Hillary Clinton’s campaign and its involvement into the Russia hoax, including on this site.

On one hand, it’s exciting to see that information about Hillary Clinton’s alleged misdeeds is present at least somewhere in the court system, and it was even more encouraging to see that a judge slapped down Michael Sussman’s attempt to hide Durham’s allegations by claiming they were meant for political effect and were unnecessary.

Perhaps most exciting of all was seeing Democrats jump ship and turn on Hillary, at first at least, as those attacks indicated that at least some of her vulnerability was wearing off.

Unfortunately, some think that all that won’t be enough, that Clinton will once again be able to wiggle off the hook and get away with whatever it was that people associated with her campaign (allegedly) did during and after the 2016 election to falsely tie Trump to Russia.

One such person is California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who made the argument during an interview with Sharyl Attkisson.

During that interview, Attkisson led off with an introduction indicating that whatever Durham has discovered has come too late to matter. In her words:

While the Durham probe continues, there have been three indictments announced so far. One led to a guilty plea of an FBI attorney. Attorney Kevin Clinesmith doctored a document so that the FBI could get a wiretap to secretly spy on a Trump associate.

Now with the investigation approaching year three, Republican Darrell Issa says whatever Durham finds is nearing the category of too little, too late.

Issa followed up by changing some of the terminology but more or less agreeing with that characterization of the argument that the Durham probe won’t be that effective, saying:

Well, “Justice delayed is justice denied” is not some sort of a trite statement; it’s very true. Anything that comes out of the Durham Report… they could lynch Hillary Clinton, and it wouldn’t change a thing.

The fact is, time has passed. It is pretty irrelevant, except it’s a lesson to Congress that putting real-time limits and putting real meat in activities, including Inspector General’s reports and so on, is more important than ever.

The time it takes to complete an investigation, or the time it takes for Congress to get to the truth, impacts whether or not you’re going to get the truth and compliance in a timely fashion. If you can hold an administration accountable in real time, they will cooperate. If they know they can run out the clock, as they often do, they won’t.

The two go on, but that statement gets the point across: it’s too late. Clinton won not by proving her innocence, but by staying out of trouble until it was too late to hold her accountable.

Issa could be wrong, but the point seems valid: Hillary should have been held accountable long ago. Now, it’s been so long that she just might be able to escape any trouble.
