Solomon told Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs Tuesday that he’s seeing activity from DOJ that indicates Durham’s investigative team “is trying to bring those first indictments, and I would look for a time around Labor Day to see the first sort of action by the Justice Department.”
Solomon said he is hearing from defense lawyers and people “on the prosecution side” that complications with the coronavirus pandemic are “slowing down” the grand jury process.
“But everything I’m seeing on the ground, real reporting, suggests that there’s an ongoing criminal investigation intent on bringing indictments and possibly some plea bargains. The first action, the first evidence of it in the public will probably be around Labor Day. That’s an awful long time to wait, but I do see activity that looks like they’re building a criminal case right now,” he said.
There’s a chance, he noted, that the flurry of activity will be a lot of sound and fury that ultimately signifies nothing, but he’s aware of “a lot of activity consistent with building prosecutions and preparing for criminal plea bargains.”
I can't say I have a lot of confidence in Solomon's predictions. Nevertheless, this is the best we have for now. Except for AG Barr's earlier statement about developments before the end of summer.
