The New York Times Published Fake News About Trump Campaign Contacts with Russian Officials, Durham Report Finds
In a bombshell report released by Special Counsel John Durham on Monday, it was revealed that The New York Times published fake news in 2017 about routine contact between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. The Times headline read, “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence,” but the entire story was fabricated, according to the report.
The Truth About the Trump Campaign and Russian Intelligence
- The FBI did not possess any intelligence showing that anyone associated with the Trump campaign was in contact with Russian intelligence officers during the campaign.
- The FBI’s own records show that reports published by The New York Times in February and March 2017 concerning what four unnamed current and former U.S. intelligence officials claimed about the Trump campaign personnel being in touch with any Russian intelligence officers was untrue.
- The Durham report found “neither U.S. law enforcement nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.”
This report caps off a two-and-a-half-year investigation into the origins of the Russia hoax established by Attorney General William Barr.
