    This just validates what most of us on the right knew all along.

    "Durham's report found that the Department of Justice and FBI "failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law" when it launched the Trump-Russia investigation.

    Durham’s report was released Monday afternoon after his years-long investigation into the origins of the FBI’s original investigation, known as "Crossfire Hurricane." That investigation looked into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election, and his report spanned more than 300 pages.

    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 in connection with certain events and activities described in this report," the report said.

    This information in part triggered and sustained Crossfire Hurricane and contributed to the subsequent need for Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation," the report states. "In particular, there was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump's political opponents.

    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 the FBI and others learned of significant and potentially contrary intelligence," the report states."

      Can there really be anyone in the country surprised by this?  I don't see how!

        It is good to see it out in the open and in major media.

          My exact thoughts.  The FBI's dirty laundry needs to be put on exhibition to the entire planet.  It's infuriating that these television drama series about the FBI won't show that organization's true colors.  At least news agencies are starting to expose them.

            It's sad they are being in a situation where they are forced to do such a thing rather than do it on their own.  All this information about Russia/Collusion was there and they ignored it.

              What it is is that all the professional journalists from the mainstream media are either deceased or retired.  If they're still alive and they're not yet retired, then they're barely active.  For example, Walter Cronkite, Barbara Walters, Peter Jennings, Harry Reasoner, Morley Safer, Mike Wallace, Jessica Savitch, Ted Koppel, and Dan Rather, just to name a few.

      Why is Trump being so witch-hunt by the Democrate?

    Agreed, it is good to see, but it no longer matters. The damage it sought, was done.

      Let the Democrate apology to Trump.

    It's interesting how the main stream media is downplaying their journalistic failures.

    The facts are now surfacing and they are being as dishonest about this report as they were about the Russia/Collusion incident.  What the main stream media has become is an embarrassment.  The FBI needs to be seriously changed to prevent such a thing from happening again.

    "Durham said in his report that the FBI investigation was based on "raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence" and "seriously flawed information," causing the bureau "severe reputational harm." It says the bureau was unable to corroborate "a single substantive allegation" from the widely discredited Steele Dossier, assembled by former British spy Christopher Steele. But the Crossfire Hurricane probe began before the FBI received the document."

    It also pointed out the double standards of the FBI.

    "Durham was also highly critical of the way the FBI investigated Hillary Clinton as opposed to Trump. The Clinton campaign helped finance the Steele Dossier, which is outrageous, but again that news is years old."

    They need to work for all people in the country and not just those in the democrat party.

      Its not... its propaganda.  It colludes with the Administration/Democrats on what message/news gets put out, and what gets buried.

      Its a corporatocracy that we have, the media answers to its advertisers, the advertisers collectively choose to support or thwart any MSM News coverage.

      Past the corporatocracy we have politicians selling out Americans for profit, and money laundering for the Party, they get away with insider trading, they get away with cutting deals with foreign governments and selling national secrets.

      This belief that the MSM is anything other than propaganda needs to stop.  Americans are bombarded with useless and false information every day.

        "its propaganda.  It colludes with the Administration/Democrats on what message/news gets put out, and what gets buried."

        You are absolutely correct.

        Objective journalism is a myth from long ago, but it did at one time exist.

          Back in the 70s there were 80 different corporations/news entities.

          Today all the various MSM outlets, TV, Online, Print, are essentially controlled by 5 corporations that work in conjunction with one another to maintain the same messaging.

          What Tucker Carlson did regarding releasing Jan 6 footage... giving Robert Kennedy Jr. a platform on primetime... not allowed.

          Even though MSNBC and FOX take opposite sides of the political spectrum, they only stray so far in that divide, they are allowed to focus on social issues... not real issues.

          For example, the 87,000 new IRS agents, the real reason why they are expanding the IRS' powers is because when it comes to tax laws... you are considered guilty and must prove your innocence, which is not how criminal or civil law works.

          The IRS has also spent hundreds of millions of dollars last year purchasing weapons and ammunition, as have some other government agencies that typically have had nothing to do with weapons or enforcing laws by force.

          Not a peep about these things in the MSM.

        Mike, the act of corporatocracy is a shameful thing.

      The Democrate must apology to Trump as I said earlier, and then to the American people, and the world.

    This Report has shook up the swamp a bit though, no doubt!  Just saw a tweet wherein Fetterman is being praised for his great oratory skills & for really going after Republicans! Which tells me, watch out for what comes next, this bunch is desperate and capable of anything!!

    You cannot have EITHER Party taking and using unto itself official mechanisms, such as the CIA, FBI and IRS, intelligence and law enforcement, for the purpose of going after political rivals.

    This is what we currently have.

    This means we no longer have a Republic.

    This has become a permanent coup. Our Republic is done, its gone.

    They know they can silence those that would speak out, just label them racist, rapist, and deplatform them, cancel culture works very well, even on a sitting President.

    They now know they can alter any election simply by having enough "Mail In Ballots" on hand to use as needed.

    You know the old saying "its not who votes that counts, its the people who count the votes that matter"... and well, when the polls close, the observers leave and the doors are locked, those "Mail In Ballots" get added.

    This is the country you live in now, soon to come, will be CBDC, Carbon Taxation, Social Credit, It will be here sooner than you imagine.
