House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik of New York called for criminal prosecutorial action to be taken against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and others implicated in Special Counsel John Durham’s recent Russia probe origins revelations.Stefanik unloaded on Clinton and the Democrats involved in the propagation of Russian connection allegations against former President Trump.”I have worked from the beginning to expose the Democrats’ Russia collusion hoax. National Democrats, Hillary Clinton and current Biden appointees were at the center of the biggest criminal political corruption story in our lifetime,” Stefanik said in a Tuesday email statement to Fox News Digital.DURHAM PROBE HAS ‘ACCELERATED,’ WITH MORE PEOPLE ‘COOPERATING,’ COMING BEFORE GRAND JURY

If they can do this to a sitting president, they can do it to any American,” she continued.Stefanik has been an outspoken critic of the Russian asset allegations levied against former President Trump and played an integral role in establishing the counter-investigation headed up by Durham into the origins of the allegations.In 2017, the congresswoman questioned former FBI director James Comey on the timeline of events, revealing the months of waiting before the Steele dossier paid for by Clinton-employed law firm Perkins Coie was reported up the national intelligence chain.
