Former president Donald Trump called for a conclusion from John Durham, the Special Counsel investigating the origins of the Russia investigation.

Expressing frustration of the delayed outcome in an interview with Real Clear Investigations and asked, “Where the hell is Durham?”
“Is that an embarrassment, or what? I wonder if Durham’s ever even going to come out with a report,” he continued. “They have him scared. Probably come out with a bad report.”
“When I heard that he was going to come out with a report sometime during the Biden administration, I said, ‘You gotta be kidding.’ It’s a disgrace. In the meantime, we don’t hear anything about him,” he added.

Trump has long referred to the FBI’s Russia investigation as a “hoax” and has been calling to see more results from Durham’s investigation.
“Where’s Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?” Trump said in a statement back in March.
