It's been a long time coming and frankly too late for both the 2020 election and the 2022 election, but the Durham Report is finally out and frankly for those of us with two brain cells to run together, it is not shocking that a massive abuse of power has been exposed.
"Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane (the investigation of Trump Russia by the FBI) and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report," the report said.
The report added that "senior FBI personnel displayed a serious lack of analytical rigor towards the information that they received, especially information received from politically-affiliated persons and entities.
"This information in part triggered and sustained Crossfire Hurricane and contributed to the subsequent need for Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation," the report states. "In particular, there was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump's political opponents."
In other words, there should never have been a Mueller investigation because there should never have been an investigation into collusion in the first place. It was clearly political hackery and a massive abuse of power.
"The Department did not adequately examine or question these materials and the motivations of those providing them, even when at about the same time the Director the FBI and others learned of significant and potentially contrary intelligence," the report states.
"I, and much more importantly, then American public have been victims of this long-running and treasonous charade started by the Democrats — started by Comey," former President Trump told Fox News Digital. "There must be a heavy price to pay for putting our country through this."
But will there be? Will anyone pay for the abuse of power?
