Shipwreckedcrew addresses the unthinkable: If No Indictments Prior to the Election, What Is Durham’s End Game? Read the whole thing, but I think these few excerpts will give a good idea of what could happen.
First, SWC briefly addresses what I just wrote about at considerable length--what's taking Durham "so long":
I believe that the recent declassification and release of SOME information about the role of the Clinton Campaign in amplifying the Trump-Russia hoax has also created new investigative leads for Durham. I think Durham has a ton more information on that subject than the public has seen.
If I was leading this investigation, I would want to run those down before I started to “show my cards” to my targets. I expect when an indictment is filed — and I believe one will be filed — it will include and extraordinarily detailed conspiracy count — maybe more than one conspiracy — in terms of laying out the evidence against named and unnamed co-conspirators. ...
I would maintain that the recent declassifications and release of certain documents almost certainly did NOT create "new investigative leads." Declassification and access are two totally different things. I assume that Durham had access to the declassified documents long ago--the declassification had nothing to do with Durham's access to the documents, only to the public's access.
Then he gets to the heart of the matter:
The question really is “What is the end game if Biden wins?”
My guess is that Durham will have one or more indictments returned in December or early January, ahead of the inauguration. I think Attorney General Barr will then accept Durham’s resignation as US Attorney and name Durham as a “Special Counsel” under DOJ Regulations in simultaneous actions. He might do the same thing with US Attorney Jensen in Missouri who seems to be investigating the actual cases brought by the Special Counsel’s Office.
... whoever might be Attorney General in a hypothetical Biden Administration could fire Durham and shut the investigations down. But that action would have to be taken with all the allegations and evidence — in the form of a detailed and specific conspiracy charge — in full view for the public to see. The political consequences of taking such action could be quite high.
