The Problem with the Durham Report Most Americans See


by Mark Schwendau

Department of Justice Special Counsel John Durham was called to Capitol Hill to testify and answer questions about his 6.5 million dollar, three-year report into the investigation of former President Trump related to Russian collusion.

The Democrats were not happy as they felt it was a personal attack on members of their party (i.e., Hillary Clinton), and it did not support the “Orange Man Bad” narrative of former President Trump they love to push.

The Republicans were not happy as it did not go far enough into finding Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party guilty of crimes committed against a popular seated president. They wanted people in prison after this report.

Americans were not happy in that the very thing Hillary Clinton and the Democrats tried to frame President Trump for Russian collusion.

What Special Counsel Durham’s report found was:

“…the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities….”

“…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.”

“…the Crossfire Hurricane investigators did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations contained in the Steele reporting.”

But U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made a number of observations he extrapolated from the Durham report that put the whole matter into a clearer light:

“What have we learned from the Durham Report? That the New York Times and Washington Post were given a Pulitzer Prize for writing a bunch of politically motivated crap. When it comes to reporting on Donald Trump, the mainstream media is dead.

“The Durham Report is a damning indictment of the FBI under James Comey and the operations of the Department of Justice.  Their behavior during the Crossfire Hurricane investigation reads like a page out of the Nixon playbook.

“The findings we published when I was Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in regard to the Crossfire Hurricane and the Mueller Investigation are consistent with the Durham Report.  Today, I am calling on Chairman Durbin to quickly hold a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Durham Report to fulfill the Committee’s oversight obligations.

“Not only could the FBI not verify the Steele Dossier – the essential foundation for surveillance warrants – they ignored exculpatory evidence and illegally altered evidence to continue the investigation.  The facts confirm that the investigation was launched and continued as part of a political agenda.

“Sadly, this report – which shines a bright light on problems at the FBI and DOJ – reinforces the narrative that the Rule of Law in America is subservient to political outcomes.  It is a very dangerous development and moment in American history.

“Unfortunately, when it comes to the American Left, you will not hear about the Durham Report.  The American Left celebrates bad actors like these because they had a ‘noble cause’ – taking down a political opponent.  It is a case of the ends justifying the means.  I hope they will prove me wrong and come out and make clear that the FBI and DOJ violated the constitutional protections of many, including Donald Trump, but I am not holding my breath.

“Finally, my advice to those unfairly maligned by the bogus Crossfire Hurricane investigation would be to hire a good lawyer and sue the hell out of them. Those responsible for Crossfire Hurricane destroyed reputations and lives, all in the name of politics.  Someone needs to be held accountable for using the law as a political weapon and ruining innocent people’s lives.”

The Forbes news outlet released a number of videos to YouTube that show both the Republican’s and Democrats’ level of anger in this matter:

“At today’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) grilled Special Counsel John Durham about Joseph Mifsud.”

“’So Corrupt And So Rotten’: (Rep.) Harriet Hageman (R-WY) Shreds The FBI At John Durham Hearing.”

“Adam Schiff (D-CA), Takes No Prisoners Grilling John Durham About Alleged Trump-Russia Collusion.”

Americans are angry and asking the question, “Where is the DOJ-FBI ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ type investigation related to both Hillary Clinton with Russia and Joe Biden with China???”

  1. I wish I could say this in less words and better,

    but the reason the Durham report did not produce any results such as people going to prison is that what the Durham report found ( democrat corruption ) is what keeps Democrats out of prison.

    For example,

    Durham did prove that Sussman was paid by Hillary Clinton to fabricate dirt on Trump…but the corrupt judge and jury decided that despite mountains of evidence, Sussman was not guilty.

    Every time Durham proved Democrats were corrupt, some corrupt democrat did something to block Durham from doing anything about it.

    The fact Democrats are able to keep Durham from doing anything, proves that Democrats are corrupt and control the justice system.

    I am not explaining this well, I know.

    But I know people who read this site understand what I am trying to say.

  2. Rep. Gaetz for the next attorney general! Durham? He seems Honest, but is otherwise very weak and unimpressive in this hearing. Definitely Not the “hard-charging prosecutor” we heard so much about. Fizzle.

    Did Hillary and her associates commit crimes when she started this whole dirty operation, lying to the government? If so, why no charges? What was the purpose of this special “prosecutor?” Telling the voters that the DOJ is dogshit does not require a special prosecutor. We already knew this. Not one bad actor was locked-up. I repeat, Fizzle.

    • The people who should have been thrown in prison are in the same team as the corrupt democrats who run the DOJ and FBI.

      The criminals and those who should throw them in prison are the same people.

      The criminals, the DOJ and the FBI are the same people.

      Durham did not have the power to make the DOJ or the FBI arrest themselves for being corrupt.

      Imagine a Jew in 1941 that runs to the nazis to tell them that he found out that some nazis are doing bad things and should be thrown in prison…

      the nazis would not arrest themselves, they throw that Jew in prison instead…which is basically what democrats have done with the jan6 ers and are trying to do with Trump ; anyone who exposes the democrat DOJ and FBI for the criminals they are runs the risk of being thrown in prison.

      Anyone who helps the criminal democrats gets a get out of jail free pass ( BLM and Antifa in 2020 were 50 times more violent than jan6ers yet most of them are free as birds )

      The corruption is deep and their power is gargantuesque…

  3. The YouTube links never play for me. I use a vpn service and the snooping scum at YouTube/Google block many vpns. Please, if you can link to rumble, Twitter or other video sites, it would be greatly appreciated! This YouTube vpn blockade has been happening for many months. Hate ‘em now.

  4. Investigate and spend millions every time with no one is held accountable! Nothing is ever done! Corruption everywhere. We are electing people that hate the country and the Constitution and you wonder why the country is going to hell? No laws any longer with consequences for the criminals only law abiding citizens suffer. Wake up and remove your head out of you *** and vote this haters Democrats and Republicans out! Prices on everything are up, inflation, our standing in the world is now crap. I could tell you what I real think but it isn’t allowed here!

  5. “Well, it happened so long ago…”
    Like most political evil it goes unpunished and the republic suffers greatly.

    Lesson for Democrats: Increase your dirty tricks, no one cares.

  6. Durham is a disappointment and let shifty put words in his mouth. We were told Durham was going to get to the bottom of the Trump Russian collusion. Instead the real criminals are free as a bird. What a waste of taxpayer dollars.

  7. Schiff obviously is a DAMN LIAR…Assange and WikiLeaks, unlike what he and the CORRUPTED media would have people believe, are NOT connected to the Kremlin…
