Trump Responds to Durham’s Bombshell FBI Report

1 min read

Special Counsel John Durham, who reviewed the investigation of former President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, issued a scathing final report on how the FBI launched and carried out its case.

The FBI’s investigation, known as “Crossfire Hurricane“, lasted nearly a year after the 2016 presidential election and accused Trump’s campaign of “either wittingly or unwittingly” coordinating with the Russian government’s attempts to interfere in the election.

Durham’s report concluded authorities did not have sufficient information to open the case in the first place.

“The objective facts show that the FBI’s handling of important aspects of the Crossfire Hurricane matter were seriously deficient,” Durham wrote, saying the FBI relied on “raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence.”

“As the more complete record now shows, there are specific areas of Crossfire Hurricane activity in which the FBI badly underperformed and failed, not only in its duties to the public, but also in preventing the severe reputational harm that has befallen the FBI as a consequence of Crossfire Hurricane,” Durham wrote.

“Importantly, had the Crossfire Hurricane actors faithfully followed their own principles regarding objectivity and integrity, there were clear opportunities to have avoided the mistakes and to have prevented the damage resulting from their embrace of seriously flawed information that they failed to analyze and assess properly,” he continued.

A key note in the report is the FBI’s inability to corroborate any of the notorious Steele Dossier, yet it was used as a basis for warrants and to continue the investigation.

Trump and Allies React

Trump posted to his Truth Social platform shortly after the report was issued.

“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!” Trump wrote.

Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted that he reached out to Durham to testify about the results of his report next week.
