Former President Donald Trump said in an interview that the criminal investigation into the origin of the Russiagate probe, headed by Special Counsel John Durham, is just getting started.
A lot more is going to come out — and it’s going to be bad news for his rivals, Trump predicted.
In an interview with Epoch Times’ Kash Patel, who previously worked as chief of staff to former Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller, Trump expressed his frustration with the speed of Durham’s investigation.
However, Trump did say Durham “did come up with some really interesting stuff with the lawyers and [former Democratic lawyer Michael] Sussman and all of these people, number one.”
That’s just the beginning, predicted the 45th president.
“I hear there’s a lot coming. So, I think the jury is out,” Trump said. “We’re going see what happens. But what he’s doing is one of the most important jobs being done right now in America.”
Trump also addressed his previous statements of frustration on the Russiagate origins probe.
When Durham “came out with that initial statement and report, and it was big. And that’s felt like a foundation for very big things to come. So hopefully, who knows?”
“We’re going to see. I wish it were faster. We’re going to see what happens. But it was a criminal. I call it the crime of the century,” he continued. “It is really the crime of the century. And it changed everything, including the election, it changed everything. It was so disgusting, what took place. And all of the things they said about me and Russia: ‘It was them and Russia. It was them and Russia, they worked with Russia. And they would lie.'”
“I watched this Adam Schiff. I call him, respectfully, watermelon head, because his head is shaped just like a watermelon,” Trump joked. “I’d watch him go up to the microphone, and act as so hurt.”
“He’s so hurt, talking about Trump and Russia, when he knew it was a rigged deal — when he knew it was a fake. He knew it was fake. He was one of the people that made it up, along with Hillary Clinton and others.”
“Maybe they’re looking at him?” Patel asked about Durham’s probe.
“These are bad people. So, I hope John Durham, for the good of the country, comes up with everything that you know took place, and that everybody knows took place because it has been exposed,” Trump said.
“It would be really nice to have it fully exposed. So we’ll see what happens. I will give you a really good answer, hopefully, in a year from now.”
