Special Counsel John Durham’s report has concluded on Monday that the FBI never had any evidence of any corroborating evidence for the FBI/DOJ Russia collusion investigation against Donald Trump and his campaign to justify its probe that cost American’s millions for years.
“Indeed, based on the evidence gathered in the multiple exhaustive and costly federal investigations of these matters, including the instant investigation, neither U.S. law enforcement nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation,” Durham said in his report.
Who was thrown to the curb and under the bus?
Everyone in the U.S.
Donald Trump, the American public, their taxpayers’ wasted money, Trump supporters and all of those Hillary Clinton supporters, she called “deplorables.”
Basically - All of AMERICA!
One has to laugh disgracefully to even believe then and after what Hillary Clinton and her political operatives concocted through their gangs and law firms. If should be noted that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was effectively opposition research of a sitting president who beat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
America was put on the guillotine politically and at the expense on a global reputational-scale for the Clintons, Obamas and Bidens falsely, and to help a woman like Hillary Clinton, who thought she was better than anyone else.
I find Hilary Clinton indefensibly dishonest and not an intellectual giant as a leader.
First met her during the 1992 campaign and her husband, years earlier as a Georgetown University student and he, a Georgetown alum. As he was climbing the ladder politically, I was climbing the ladder via the networks as a political journalist.
As a woman who served as Secretary of State, Hillary gave conflicting representations about the Arab Rising circa 2010 and 2011 and through the Benghazi attack in September 2012. She and the Obama administration officials claimed the Arab Rising was a spontaneous evolution, which it was not. They deflected and deceived the public about the Benghazi attack, which I was in a full throttle investigation at that time.
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign opposition research has raised itself to a new level of corruptive opposition research that has spilled over in a presidency that costs the American taxpayers’ money, time and global reputation, and put America and their allies at risk within the national security area and international discourse.
Hillary Clinton has lied for decades - from TravelGate to all the other scandals miring her involvement during the Clinton presidency, and even to her claiming on the TODAY show in the late 1990s that right-wingers had gone after her husband for years calumniating with the Lewinsky affair.
The truth be told - many in news and political circles had known Bill Clinton was cheating on Hillary for years.
As for the Lewinsky “saved” dress, which blew the public’s mind in August 1998, yes, it raised all of Hillary’s positions to an indefensible level of even in democratic circles in August 1998
For years, Hillary Clinton has been married to cheating husband who had no shame, and I behold - neither did Hillary because of her ambition at the cost of blaming others.
In the late 1980s when Bill Clinton was thinking of running for president, but changed his mind, he even tried to plant a negative story about Al Gore in Florida.
I know that first-hand because I was then CNN’s Political Director and Bill Clinton fed that story to me as a journalist, and I turned it on its head the next day, I was so morally outraged.
In response to Durham’s conclusion now - Donald Trump has called Durham’s finding a “total vindication” personally and has now vowed to make sweeping changes at the bureau and Justice Department if he wins in 2024.
We shall see.
Now of us know the outcome nearly 18 months from now.
Durham released a 300-plus page. You can read here.
Attorney General Merrick Garland sent Durham’s report to congressional lawmakers on Monday.
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan announced that he has reached out to the Department of Justice to have Durham testify next week.
Durham has concluded that if the FBI had taken steps, it would have found that US intelligence agencies did not have any evidence tying Trump to Russian officials.
Too bad the Intel community did not do their jobs during 2016 and even in 2020 when they concluded that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation after the New York Post first reported that story mid-October 2020
Durham report points to specifically to “highly significant intelligence” the FBI “received from a trusted foreign source pointing to a Clinton campaign plan to vilify Trump by tying him to Vladimir Putin so as to divert attention from her own concerns relating to her use of a private email server.”
“Unlike the FBI’s opening of a full investigation of unknown members of the Trump campaign based on raw, uncorroborated information, in this separate matter involving a purported Clinton campaign plan, the FBI never opened any type of inquiry, issued any tasking, employed any analytical personnel, or produced any analytical products in connection with the information,” Durham’s investigative report reads.
Andrew McCabe defended the FBI’s handling of the investigation in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night, saying that he “vehemently” disagreed with the report’s findings and calling Durham’s probe a “political errand” on behalf of Trump.
Although McCabe has been outed with his involvement of bias against Donald Trump, he is still interviewed on CNN.
