When Special Counsel John Durham finishes his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, his report will likely be made public, a Department of Justice official suggested in a newly released letter.
Durham is investigating the department’s counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign and associates, which was riddled with errors and malfeasance.
The timeline for the probe to wrap up is unclear, but then-Attorney General William Barr indicated last year the final report should be made public.
Gaeta declined to comment on the investigation’s status but said the department does back the portion of Barr’s order regarding public dissemination of the final report and any interim reports.
“The Department agrees with this statement,” he wrote.
Gaeta’s letter was sent on July 13 and made public on Friday.
Durham was a U.S. attorney for many years but was replaced along with every other U.S. attorney by President Joe Biden earlier this year.
