Just The News: Calls on Capitol Hill for Special Counsel John Durham to testify in more detail about his final report on the FBI’s flimsy Trump-Russia collusion probe ratcheted up Tuesday when Republican senators followed the GOP-led House’s push for him to come to Capitol Hill.
Within hours of Durham releasing his May 16 report, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan had asked him to testify before his panel on Thursday.
Durham isn’t testifying this week, but a congressional source told Just the News on Tuesday he’s expected to testify before Jordan’s GOP-led committee sometime in June.
Senate Republicans are pushing the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Illinois Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin, to hold a hearing on the Durham report’s findings – which concluded the FBI had no “actual evidence” to begin investigating allegations the 2016 Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia to win the election.

North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis was among 10 Senate Republicans to write a formal letter to Durbin on Monday calling on him to invite Durham to testify before the committee.
“Special Counsel Durham’s report on acts of bias within our intelligence community is deeply disturbing,” Tillis said in a Twitter post that included a copy of the letter.
“The Senate Judiciary Committee should hold a hearing on this report and invite the Special Counsel to appear before us as soon as possible,” he also said.
The committee’s Democrat staff office did not respond to a call Monday about whether Durbin would comply with the request.
Durham’s final report also concluded that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate the alleged collusion even though neither the FBI nor Justice Department lacked verifiable evidence of such a plot.
