GOP chair ‘speechless’ after top FBI official says ‘I just haven’t had time’ to read Durham report

Just the News

Congressional Republicans condemned FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Jill Murphy at a hearing after she said she has not read special counsel John Durham’s report on her agency’s probe into allegations that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election.

“I have not yet read the Durham report, sir,” Murphy told House Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement and Intelligence Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman August Pfluger during a hearing Tuesday.

“I’m honestly speechless at this point in time. I’m not sure what to think about this as someone who has spent an entire career in counterintelligence,” Pfluger, a Texas Republican, responded.

“I just haven’t had time,” Murphy said when Pfluger pressed as to why she has not read the report, which was published May 15 and concluded that the FBI did not have verified intelligence or evidence when it opened an investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign. read more

  1. This is one of the few times it would be totally legit for a member of Congress to say “You’ve GOT to be fucking KIDDING me” during a witness testimony.

    Probably true as far as it goes, though. We make time for the things we think are important. To the Fraudulent Bastards of Iniquity, reading about something they already know about in a report they probably had a red pen on isn’t a very high priority task since it doesn’t affect what they do or how they get paid in any way, shape, or form and never will.

  2. It’s possible she hasn’t read every word, so in that sense she can say she hasn’t read it. But I guarantee she knows what’s in the report. Just another way to withhold information.

  3. I guar-an-tee that if you or I were to pull that stunt, we’d be inside a jail cell so fast, “IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE”.
    Just shows what our “betters” think of us-vs-them.

    I’ll believe that true equal justice under the law is being exercised when “them” get the exact same treatment as “us”.

  4. 9/4/01 the sleazy President FoR WHOM I DID NOT VOTE put Herr Mueller uncharge! Mueller’s job was to turn FBI into an anti conservative Gestapo. Mueller did his job well! All agents who said Ronny was a good President were purged by 09!

    Were Jill not an American hating liberal she would no longer be there! Even if she has read it she will lie and say no

    Hannity has had his he’d up his ass for 10 years! There’re no good decent men at FBI”! Had there been any there 8 years ago the persecution of Ronny backers would not have been done. Naming some Ronny folk I think most here will know: Gen Flynn, P Manafort, C.Page. GWB’s boy Mueller fabricated and paid others to fabricate “evidence’ of illegal acts these conservatives had done.

    We now know that Bush ordered the FBi to break the law in going after these conservatives. But Bush’s girl l. Lerner has never been tired AND ITS BEEN 17 YEARS SINCE SHE WENT AFTER RONY SUPER PACS ILLEGALLY; SO IF YOU THINK MUELLER, COMEY, ROD, AND THE REsT Of GWB’S GANG WILL BE TRIED you sir/mam like Hannity, have your head up your ass!

    UNIPARTY has existed for 70 years because it protects its own! Lerner is free is proof the UNIPARTY’S power.
