Raise your hands, anyone who thought special counsel John Durham’s probe into the outrageous treatment of President Trump by the Obama FBI, DOJ, CIA, and State Department was ever going to amount to anything.
As Durham’s investigative “work” finally wraps up, it’s embarrassingly obvious he’s just another swamp creature with a nice suit, a bad goatee, and no spine.
A stroll back in time to May 2019, makes Durham’s ensuing abdication of duty abundantly clear. Back then, Fox News’s Brooke Singman described Durham as “aggressive, tireless, and fair.”
Three years later, we can see that Durham’s been about as aggressive as a Prince Edward Island oyster in a foul mood. If he’s been tireless, it’s been strictly in service to his Deep State masters. And when all the major players involved in the attempted coups against Pres. Trump walk with their pensions, licenses, and CNN jobs firmly in hand — and they will — you can throw “fair” right out the window.
Your first clue that this investigation would be merely a sham of a travesty of a farce was Singman pointing out in her article that Durham has done highly sensitive work for “both sides of the aisle.” In other words, Durham was the Mitt Romney of special investigators: a Democrat wolf in RINO clothing.
Clue #2 from this three-year-old article was the Fox writer elaborating on how Durham’s boss, then–attorney general Bill Barr, was working “collaboratively” with FBI head honcho Chris Wray (who’s currently hunting down conservatives); CIA director Gina Haspel (who stated that “Trump was like a six-year-old” and that we’re on our way to a “right-wing coup”); and DoJ inspector general Michael Horowitz, who’s made a career of not noticing Democrat malfeasance.
Talk about a stacked deck. Everyone running the Durham show was a NeverTrump, and they collaborated!
As it ends not with a bang, but a whimper, what has the Durham special investigation accomplished? Not a thing. more. h/t NAAC.
