    Rep. Devin Nunes released a groundbreaking document in early 2018 that shook up Washington and proved to be the beginning of the end of the Trump-Russia conspiracy industry. His memo, released while he chaired the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, contained two stunning disclosures that are now back in the news.First, it confirmed that the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign funded a Kremlin-sourced dossier in 2016 that accused Donald Trump and his allies of various election conspiracy crimes.Second, the Democratic-financed dossier was used by the FBI to justify four wiretaps lasting one year on Trump campaign volunteer...

    In a scathing bit of mockery, former President Donald Trump issued a statement Friday night asking if Special Counsel John Durham is still alive, as the prosecutor's probe into the origins of the Russia collusion probe drags on.Durham has been looking at the FBI's Crossfire Hurricane, the bureau's inquiry into the Trump 2016 presidential campaign's alleged links to Russia, for about two years. Trump Attorney General Bill Barr designated him "special counsel" last October. ..."Where’s Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?" Trump said in a statement, according to Fox News.

    Donald Trump mockingly wondered if Special Counsel John Durham is still alive, as the prosecutor's probe drags on into the origins of the FBI’s "Crossfire Hurricane" investigation of his 2016 campaign's alleged ties to Russia. Durham has been probing the matter for about two years and was officially appointed a "special counsel" by former Attorney General Barr last October. Trump has long referred to the FBI’s Russia investigation as a "hoax" and has been hoping to see more results from Durham's investigation. "Where’s Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?" Trump said...

    When John Durham left his position as U.S. attorney last week, many assumed this was the Biden administration’s way of cutting short his investigation into the FBI and “Crossfire Hurricane.” And you can bet that’s what they’d like it to be. Fortunately, though, in anticipation of that inevitable move, President Trump “promoted” Durham to special counsel, ensuring that his investigation of the FBI would continue no matter who was in the Oval Office. And now, John Solomon reports that Durham has had a big break in the case.The story of “Crossfire Hurricane” has gone on so long — five interminable...

    Afew weeks after Donald Trump won the White House, senior officials inside the FBI had their latest heartburn about the news media's coverage of a burgeoning Russia collusion controversy and the lingering Hillary Clinton email scandal.The bureau had recently terminated its primary informant in the Russia probe Christopher Steele for leaking, and several of its leads about Russia-Trump collusion were falling apart. And inaccurate stories about the two biggest scandals in Washington were cropping up everywhere, even when FBI officials tried to work with reporters."Yes, the headline is REALLY misleading," then-FBI deputy counsel Lisa Page wrote a colleague in a...

    Christopher Wray will spearhead Dems’ offensive against Trump supporters in the wake of January 6. “We have not to date seen any evidence of anarchist violent extremists or people subscribed to Antifa in connection with the sixth. That doesn’t mean we’re not looking, and we’ll continue to look, but at the moment we have not seen that.” That was FBI boss Christopher Wray testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Wray claimed the FBI doesn’t care about ideology, but he left more than a reasonable doubt about how hard the FBI had been looking. According to a January 13...

    The House Intelligence Committee's Kash Patel said senior intelligence officials 'continuously impeded' their release – usually by slow-walking their reviews of the material.After four years of railing against “deep state” actors who, he said, tried to undermine his presidency, Donald Trump relented to U.S. intelligence leaders in his final days in office, allowing them to block the release of critical material in the Russia investigation, according to a former senior congressional investigator who later joined the Trump administration.Kash Patel, whose work on the House Intelligence Committee helped unearth U.S. intelligence malpractice during the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe, said he does...

    For the past year, defenders of the FBI have consistently downplayed the significance of an FBI staff lawyer falsifying evidence in the government’s investigation into Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia. They argue Kevin Clinesmith’s crime of altering a CIA document to obscure the fact that former Trump campaign aide Carter Page worked for U.S., not Russian, intelligence was a rare lapse in judgment by an overworked bureaucrat. It was not, his apologists say, part of any broader conspiracy to conceal exculpatory information from surveillance court judges, who never learned of Page’s history with the CIA before approving FBI warrants to...

    As Rudy Giuliani noted on Twitter, why wasn't this brought up during the sham impeachment hearings? The Sullivan brothers are quite a pair. The adopted sons of retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Kevin J. Sullivan, John and James have been on opposite sides of the ideological spectrum since the George Floyd video was released last spring. And both have built reputations of being provocateurs with John helping Antifa and Black Lives Matter while James works closely with the Proud Boys. John Sullivan was arrested yesterday in connection with instigating the Capitol riots on January 6th. A video of him and...

    John Durham A ray of hope? The White House announced on Tuesday that President Trump signed an order on December 18 giving US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham the authority to present classified information to a grand jury investigating Crossfire Hurricane. Under previous DOJ rules and regulations the Attorney General needed consent from the specific classifying agency which allowed Deep Staters in the CIA to stonewall release of documents. As TGP previously reported, Attorney General Bill Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as a Special Counsel in October tasked with investigating the Crossfire Hurricane investigation targeting the Trump campaign and...

Brennan said, “You can do a lot of damage in 70 days. He’s still the president of the United States. And is he going to carry out these vendettas against other individuals?
