The Federalist names and shames ’61 hacks’ who pushed the Russian collusion narrative

While deep state players discount Special Counsel John Durham’s 300-page report on the investigation into Trump-Russia collusion, along with the complicit media, the end result is that the American people were taken for a ride for years by the U.S. intelligence apparatus in furtherance of the best interests of the Democratic Party.

Durham found that 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 without any hard evidence, and that “there was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump’s political opponents.”

And while accountability is not to be expected — we are talking about Washington, D.C. —  the names of all the figures who played a key role in the deceptive campaign that not only targeted a presidential candidate but extended post-election in the hopes of destroying a sitting U.S. president should be known to all Americans.

A fitting solution here would be for these corrupt players to forevermore wear a scarlet C on their lapel, as a sign of their participation in the collusion hoax that was designed to vilify Donald Trump, but that will never happen. What did happen is that The Federalist compiled a list aptly titled: 61 Hacks Who Peddled Russian Collusion And Should Never Be Trusted Again

The list appears to be from 2019 and includes eight names from CNN, including anchor Jake Tapper, and six names from MSNBC, ranging from Joe Scarborough to Rachel Maddow.

There’s also a who’s who of former FBI officials, beginning of course with disgraced former director James Comey. Former CIA director John Brennan fittingly made the list as well.

Interestingly, Hillary Clinton is NOT on the list, despite her campaign cooking up the ruse, to begin with. Barack Obama escaped notice as well, even though the “investigation” of a presidential candidate began on HIS watch, and the Durham report noted that Brennan briefed him on events.

There are plenty of others who should be on the list… perhaps, this will not be the only compilation of names of those who have destroyed public trust to be crafted.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
