Stan Twardy is quoted in an article, "Durham's Probe Now Enmeshed in Politics of Impeachment," published by The Connecticut Mirror. The article focuses on Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was appointed by U.S. Attorney General William Barr to examine former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
According to reports, in addition to investigating Mueller's Russia probe, Durham may also be looking into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in light of impeachment inquiries over President Trump's interactions with Ukraine. As reported in the article, Durham is likely facing political pressure to draw certain conclusions from his investigations. "It's not John's fault that it's become a political football, but John's going to call the shots" said Twardy, a former U.S. Attorney in Connecticut who worked with Durham when Durham was an assistant U.S. Attorney.
Twardy also told The Connecticut Mirror "John will be an honest broker and this is what the nation needs," noting that Durham is "completely apolitical." "There is nobody I would trust more than John Durham to do an investigation," said Twardy.
