Call Sean Hannity – it looks like Hillary is finally going to be indicted!
In case you didn’t notice, I’m being sarcastic.
This Durham guy knew just like we all knew on day one that this whole thing was a hoax.
He comes out 6 years after the fact and says “I’ve determined it was a hoax.”
The US Justice Department and FBI “failed to uphold their mission” when they launched the so-called ‘Russiagate’ investigation into former president Donald Trump, the Justice Department’s special counsel, John Durham, has determined in a long-anticipated report.
In a 300-page document released on Monday, Durham condemned the FBI for treating incriminating information on Trump with a “serious lack of analytical rigor, especially information received from politically-affiliated persons and entities.”
Durham’s declaration is primarily a reference to the ‘Steele Dossier’, a compilation of bogus rumors about the former president and his alleged links to Russia that was gathered by a former British intelligence agent on the payroll of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
The dossier kickstarted the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation against Trump in 2016 – codenamed ‘Crossfire Hurricane’, which would spiral into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ‘Russiagate’ investigation. Mueller would later find that no collusion occurred between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
The Steele Dossier was used by the FBI to obtain court permission to spy on Trump’s campaign. The FBI made “basic, fundamental, and serious errors” in applying for a warrant to surveil Trump, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz declared in 2019.
“There was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump’s political opponents,” Durham wrote in his report. “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 of the FBI and others learned of significant and potentially contrary intelligence.”
“Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law,” he stated.
Durham did not, however, recommend that the FBI make any “wholesale changes” to how it handles politically sensitive investigations.
Yeah, can’t have that!
“Yeah, you ran this gigantic campaign to destroy a president – but just keep doing shit like that, it’s cool.”
Anyone could have confirmed the Steele Dossier AKA “Pissgate” was fake. A retarded child could have confirmed it.
But we’re supposed to believe it took this guy six years to figure it out?
This is all absurd.
Literally nothing is going to happen.
Sean Hannity should be prosecuted for fraud for manipulating the public into thinking people were going to get arrested for this conspiracy. The entire concept of the thing – this investigation – was to make people think the system functions.
Well, now you have the functioning of the system: the government admits it was all a hoax, then shrugs it off.
Republicans will be celebrating this like they proved something to someone.
What did they prove? And to whom?
The people who could actually do something about this are the Republican politicians. Somehow, Sean Hannity manages to never point that out.
