John Durham is Preparing to Release a “Large Volume” Documents
The Department of Justice is expected to release a “large volume” of classified materials and documents related to the ‘Russiagate’ case. The documents were the main source for former British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier, which attempted to sabotage then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s candidacy and subsequent presidency.
The news comes courtesy of former Special Counsel John Durham. He revealed the information in a Tuesday filing in which he also asked a federal judge to extend a deadline for the production of classified discovery in order to comply with the Classified Information Procedures Act, which governs how classified documents must be protected in criminal cases.
“To date, the government has produced over 60,000 documents in unclassified discovery. A portion of these documents were originally marked ‘classified’ and the government has worked with the appropriate declassification authorities to produce the documents in an unclassified format,” Durham wrote in the filing.
