  • Bipartisan effort to reauthorize FISA, end abuses likely iced by Durham report

    Congressional Democrats have joined in bipartisan effort to reform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act amid abuses exposed in special counsel probes and in federal court. But GOP outrage over the matter, including recent calls out impeach Attorney General Merrick Garland over such matters, has likely hurt such efforts. Congressional reauthorization of FISA is due in December, with particular focus on Section 702 of the law, which permits the government to conduct targeted surveillance on foreign people outside the U.S., with the assistance of electronic communication service providers, to acquire foreign intelligence information. Beyond concerns about FISA abuses, lawmakers are also...

    “I made it clear that neither President Obama nor Vice President Biden were in Durham’s crosshairs,” explains William Barr, the Attorney General who tapped John Durham to investigate the Russia collusion hoax against candidate and President Donald Trump. In One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General, Barr also praises Robert Mueller and deputy attorney general Rob Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller to investigate Trump. “Few can appreciate the complexities Rod faced during that tumultuous time,” writes Barr, “and even fewer will know the important contributions he made to the administration and the country.” The allegedly heroic Rosenstein gets...

    Special Counsel John Durham recently appeared before Congress to answer questions about his bombshell report on the FBI’s botched handling of Donald Trump’s alleged Russian collusion in 2016, and what Americans heard in the hallowed halls of the Capitol should chill them to the core. Durham told the House Judiciary Committee, "The FBI was too willing to accept and use politically funded and uncorroborated opposition research, such as the Steele dossier. The FBI relied on the dossier and FISA applications, knowing there was likely material originating from a political campaign or political opponent." And whose political campaign you might ask...

    What did Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Loretta Lynch, and James Comey know about Russia-collusion — and when did they know it? John Durham dropped a bombshell in his testimony today at House Oversight, which will go on for at least a couple of hours or more, but this part wasn’t the bombshell. In his special-counsel report, Durham had already revealed that CIA Director John Brennan briefed these four in August 2016 that Hillary Clinton planned to paint Donald Trump as linked to Russian intelligence, presumably to shift attention away from her own e-mail scandal.That briefing resulted in a “referral memorandum,”...

    While most of the fireworks from Special Counsel John Durham’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday came from contentious questioning by the Democrats, toward the end of the hearing, there were some additional pyrotechnics compliments of the Republican members. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) ceded some of his time to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), at which point Gaetz took after Durham in a rather unexpected turn. (Video is cued up to the introduction of Gaetz’s questioning.) First, Massie set the scene: Massie: Mr. Durham, this seems to have all started with one person, but I don’t see his name...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan claimed Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that former special counsel John Durham and Republicans skewed findings and misrepresented facts. Brennen said, “When I read the report, when it came out, I think my reaction was much like others. I was very — it was underwhelming. The Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz did a good job pointing out some of the missteps, and the tactical missteps the FBI made as it pursued this investigation. And also the Senate Intelligence Committee did a review of this.”

    Former Special Counsel John Durham on Wednesday said FBI agents had “apologized” to him for the Crossfire Hurricane investigation into former President Donald Trump and his campaign from 2016 to 2019, per his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee. Durham, who was appointed Special Counsel to investigate the origins of the investigation into Trump’s campaign – which later revealed that Trump had not colluded with Russia to win the election – interviewed FBI agents who were involved in the investigation. Those FBI agents were ashamed of their work on the investigation, according to Durham, who also said that several other...

    Special counsel John Durham went after House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jerry Nadler (D-NY) Wednesday for accusing his team of “glaring investigative missteps” during its four-year probe of the FBI investigation into alleged collusion between former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia. Durham, 73, singled out the Manhattan Democrat during his opening statement at a panel hearing, saying he and his colleagues “carried out our work in good faith, with integrity and in the spirit of following the facts wherever they lead without fear or favor” and that “the findings set forth in this report are serious and deserve...

    House Select Committee on Intelligence chair, Ohio Republican Rep. Mike Turner, shared his thoughts Sunday about the upcoming closed-door testimony from Special Counsel John Durham. Turner appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and was interviewed by Jake Tapper about his plans for the Intelligence Committee. “On Tuesday, your committee is going to hear closed door testimony from Trump-appointed Special Counsel John Durham. His report concluded that the FBI should not have launched the full Trump-Russia investigation as it did. It would have been ok to do a preliminary one but not the full-bore one. What do you want to...

    Rather than write 10,000 highly specific and legally granular words to deconstruct the Trump indictment, I will share the opinion of others with supporting analysis and add some substance to the issues. Later I will compile all the various points of analysis into one very granular article. First, it is important to always remember why this indictment is taking place. The DOJ, specifically Lisa Monaco, are continuing the offensive against Trump in large part to cover for the actions of the Obama administration in the originating targeting of their political opposition. Originating Spygate operations (’15-’16), Russiagate (’16-’17), Mueller (’17-’19), Impeachment...

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | 6/6/23 | Aaron Mate
    Special Counsel John Durham’s final report faults the FBI for opening the Trump-Russia collusion investigation on baseless grounds and relying on Hillary Clinton-funded material to pursue it, all while ignoring a warning that Clinton was plotting to frame Trump as a Russian asset. Yet Durham does not address the Clinton campaign’s equally central tie to Russiagate’s other foundational allegation: that Russia interfered in the 2016 election by hacking Democratic party servers and releasing the material through Wikileaks to help elect Trump. Durham’s silence on the Clinton team’s role in generating this unproven claim comes despite his unearthing of evidence that...
  • BIG QUESTION and A BIG COVERUP – Durham Report Brings Sunlight on Detail Never Released by IG Michael Horowitz About FBI Targeting Trump

    I’m going to go into the deep weeds on this story, because many people are missing a key facet. The names behind the Trump targeting operation are included, along with citations for independent checks by House congressional investigators. Inside the recently released report by John Durham [CITATION], the special counsel outlines how former FBI Director James Comey was intimately involved in the creation of the Carter Page FISA application. Durham notes that Comey kept asking the DOJ National Security Division and FBI counterintelligence investigators, “Where’s the FISA, we need the FISA.” However, Durham never interviewed Comey or McCabe.The former FBI...

    Fusion GPS, a contractor that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, reportedly withheld over 1,500 documents from Special Counsel John Durham. These documents were sought during Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe. Fusion GPS cited attorney-client privilege in their refusal to hand over the documents, a claim that has been contested by many legal experts​. According to the initial report, Durham did not take legal action to acquire the documents. On Friday, Paul Sperry, a senior reporter for Real Clear Investigations, broke the news on Twitter, stating, “BREAKING: Hillary Clinton campaign contractor Fusion GPS held back...
