Report: Durham Using Grand Jury to Investigate Origins of Contrived Alfa Bank Conspiracy Theory

This was the conspiracy theory that a computer at Trump Tower was sending secret messages to Moscow.

It was completely fake. As usual.

Guess where the investigative focus is landing on?

U.S. Attorney John Durham has reportedly opened a new front in his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

According to a report, Durham is seeking grand jury testimony from computer scientists behind an allegation that Donald Trump's real estate company had a secret communications channel with Alfa Bank.

The Alfa-Trump theory was first floated in October 2016, but was debunked in the Justice Department inspector general's report on the FBI's investigation of the Trump campaign.


Durham is also reportedly seeking the testimony of Daniel Jones, a former Senate Intelligence Committee investigator who partnered with Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele in 2017

The U.S. attorney investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia probe is seeking grand jury testimony from a group of computer scientists behind a since-debunked allegation that Donald Trumpís real estate company had covert computer contacts with a Russian bank, according to a report.

The New Yorker reports that John Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, has contacted the scientists in recent weeks seeking their testimony.

According to the magazine, investigators have told potential witnesses they are investigating whether two pseudonymous computer experts gave false information to the U.S. government regarding a covert communications channel between the Russian bank, Alfa Bank, and the Trump Organization.

Hillary Clinton emphasized the allegation of a possible link between Trump and Alfa Bank when it appeared in the press days before the 2016 election.
