Attorney General William Barr revealed Sunday in an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that before the summer’s end Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham will update the American public on the Justice Department’s investigation into what he’s uncovered regarding the FBI’s probe into Trump campaign and Russia.
Bartiromo’s interview with Barr on “Sunday Morning Futures,” is the first time the Attorney General has given a time frame for the information. He also noted that he was surprised by the lack of public interest in Durham’s investigation.
Unfortunately, in the opinion of this writer, the lack of public interest in the Durham probe may have more to do with the Justice Department’s secrecy to discuss the investigation publicly and the failure – as of yet – to indict or hold many of those involved legally accountable for their actions.
Although Barr has been the most informative on the Durham investigation during his interviews, other Justice Department officials have been less than cooperative when asked about developments in the probe and therefore making it less likely to garner public interest.
Durham’s investigation, however, is expanding on the evidence amassed by both Congress and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s December report. That report revealed numerous omissions and lies in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Application on Carter Page, a short term 2016 Trump campaign volunteer.
“So that has been surprising to me, that people aren’t concerned about civil liberties and the integrity of our governmental process in terms of the future of Durham’s investigation,” Barr said. “You know, he’s pressing ahead as hard as he can. And I expect that, you know, we will have some developments hopefully before the end of the summer.” Still, Barr made it clear that Durham’s probe is expected to continue passed the November’s election.
He noted one caveat, that depends “on who wins the election.”
He also discussed with Bartiromo the unmasking of Trump campaign officials during the 2016 elections saying, “I would say it’s unusual for an outgoing administration, high level officials, to be unmasking very, you know, very much in the days they’re preparing to leave office. Makes you wonder what they were doing.”

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’
The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”
The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”
An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.
In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.
Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”
As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”
Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
