Durham Report: FBI Never Should Have Investigated Trump-Russia Ties

Yesterday, Special Counsel John Durham publicly released his report on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe into ties between President Donald Trump and Russian officials. The intent of the probe, code-named Crossfire Hurricane, was to find out “whether individuals associated with the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign were coordinating, wittingly or unwittingly, with the Russian government.”

In 2019, then Attorney General William Barr asked Durham to begin an investigation into Crossfire Hurricane; Barr suspected the probe itself had been launched without sufficient evidence. Trump repeatedly accused the fbi of being motivated by political purposes. The Durham report shows he was right.

Crossfire Hurricane was predicated on tips given to the fbi by Trump’s political opponents, people who stood to gain from the marring of Trump’s reputation.

Durham’s conclusion? The fbi had no “actual evidence” of collusion between Russian officials and Trump’s campaign before commencing with Crossfire Hurricane. Durham criticized the fbi for relying on “confirmation bias,” casting aside pertinent information that didn’t fit with their claims that Russia helped Trump rig the election.

Following the release of the report, Trump wrote on Truth Social:

Wow! After extensive research, Special Counsel John Durham concludes the fbi never should have launched the Trump-Russia Probe! In other words, the American public was scammed, just as it is being scammed right now by those who don’t want to see greatness for America!

Incriminating Obama: Then Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan’s handwritten notes show that he briefed President Barack Obama and his staff on the intelligence. Apparently, Obama knew all about the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton … to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.”

On July 28, 2016, Brennan met with Obama and White House personnel to discuss information related to the 2016 presidential election. Immediately after, according to the report, “Director Brennan and other agency officials took steps to ensure that dissemination of intelligence related to Russia’s election interference efforts, including the Clinton Plan intelligence, would be limited to protect sensitive information and prevent leaks.”

The majority of news outlets aren’t reporting on Obama’s involvement in the investigation, despite it being one of the most pertinent findings in the report. Clinton’s campaign plan to link Trump with Russia is something that Obama, the president of the United States at the time, knew about and may have directed. Why aren’t more people concerned about the role he plays in all of this?

One would think that a 306-page report slamming fbi officials for corruption regarding an investigation into a presidential candidate would result in some arrests. That has not been the case.

Durham charged only three defendants during his four-year investigation. Two of these were acquitted by jurors. The third, who pleaded guilty, wasn’t even given prison time. What is more disturbing is that those who were the cause of these lies aren’t even be considered by those reporting on it.

Corrupt to the core: The Federal Bureau of Fabrication continues to get away with its unlawful tactics, and it is covering the tracks of the officials who give the marching orders. There is a deep-rooted evil in the U.S. Read America Under Attack to gain the full picture and understand who is behind this assault.
