Update (1850ET): Former President Donald Trump on Monday has responded through a spokesman, saying that the report "proves" a coordinated effort by the federal government to interfere with the 2016 US election.
"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 on Truth Social.
"The Durham Report spells out in great detail the Democrat Hoax that was perpetrated upon me and the American people. This is 2020 Presidential Election Fraud, just like ‘stuffing’ the ballot boxes, only more so."
"This totally illegal act had a huge impact on the Election. With an honest Media, we are looking at the Crime of the Century!"
“The FBI discounted or willfully ignored material information that did not support the narrative of a collusive relationship between Trump and Russia.”
Crossfire Hurricane “was opened as a full investigation without [the FBI] ever having spoken to the persons who provided that information.” Days after it was opened, Peter Strzok was telling a London FBI employee that “there’s nothing to this.”
Internal FBI communications discussing the Crossfire Hurricane during its early stages: it’s “thin” and “it sucks”.
British Intelligence pushed back on Mueller requests for assistance: “[a British Intelligence person] basically said there was no [expletive] way in hell they were going to do it.”
Durham documents TWO investigations into Hillary Clinton - one involving the Clinton Foundation and one involving illegal foreign contributions to Clinton’s Campaign.
In one Clinton Campaign investigation, an FBI confidential human source (CHS) had offered an illegal foreign contribution to the campaign through an intermediary. The Clinton Campaign was “okay with it” and “were fully aware”. The CHS offered the FBI a copy of the credit card charge; the FBI never got receipts. In fact, the FBI handling agent told the CHS “to stay away from all events relating to Clinton’s campaign.”
As a result of ELECTION INTERFERENCE by @HillaryClinton and the @DNC in the 2016 election, President Trump faced 4+ years of relentless investigations and narratives BASED ON A LIE. The DOJ and FBI were actively working AGAINST him and the will of THE PEOPLE. Trump was right. pic.twitter.com/qHyFDVRFTQ— Byron Donalds (@ByronDonalds) May 15, 2023
Props to Aaron, @ggreenwald, @mtaibbi and everyone else on the liberal-left who told the truth about RussiaGate from the beginning. They were slandered, blacklisted, betrayed by so-called friends, and they deserve credit. https://t.co/EoMKxJ55LJ— Martyr Made 🦉🪓 (@martyrmade) May 15, 2023
