Special Counsel John Durham released his 300-page report on the investigation into Trump-Russia collusion on Monday and found the FBI and Department of Justice “failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law” in pursuing an investigation of the Trump campaign in 2016, and that “there was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump’s political opponents.”
Of course, it took six years to get to the truth and there has been no real accountability. In fact, the key players in the charade continue to claim that their politically motivated efforts were justified.
U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, being among the usual suspects — Schiff insisted in 2019 that there was “ample evidence of collusion in plain sight,” a message he repeated ad nauseam on cable TV news and social media.
“The Durham investigation was flawed from the start. It began for a political purpose – to satisfy Trump. It resulted in two spectacular failures at trial. And ended with nothing to show for four years of effort. Bottom line: FBI had a good reason to investigate – Durham didn’t,” the Democrat tweeted.

Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who signed off on a falsified FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page, responded to Durham’s report to say it “was never a legitimate investigation.”
“I stand by the investigative decisions that we made to open the investigation first on the Trump campaign and the possibility that the Russians were trying to influence it and then later on Donald Trump himself,” said McCabe, who was fired after lying about leaking to the media.
Here he is explaining to CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the decision to investigate Trump was “absolutely appropriate.”
Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe finally responds to the Durham report that calls out his poor leadership at the FBI.
He claims the report “betrays” Durham’s “deep misunderstanding” of how the FBI conducts investigations.

Yes indeed, the deep state lives on.
But Schiff, whom Donald Trump infamously nicknamed “Pencil Neck,” draws special ire from folks with his dishonest partisanship. Here’s a quick sampling of some of those responses, as seen on Twitter:
Lying #SackOfSchiff. You’re a traitor to the U.S. and lied for > 3 years about having Russian collusion evidence. You don’t belong in Congress, you belong in prison.

Folks, this is a traitor to the American Republic and everything she stands for. He betrays the Democrats that elected him, and the Republicans that have to put up with him. He leaked serious intelligence information without care or reprise, so much that our CIA had to with-hold…

Every thing you and the Democrats have done has been for political purposes and money laundering.
You are a disgrace to the office and to this nation.

You’re a con artist, professional liar, and a political grifter. If lying to citizens were a crime, you’d have a hundred life sentences. You disgust me!
