Trump: Durham Report Shows Public Was Scammed.

Trump Claims Durham Report Proves Coordinated Effort to Interfere with 2016 Election

A spokesperson from the office of former President Donald Trump on Monday stated that the investigative report released by Special Counsel John Durham “proves” a coordinated effort in the federal government to interfere with the 2016 election.

“WOW! After extensive research, Special Counsel John Durham concludes the FBI never should have launched the Trump-Russia Probe! In other words, the American Public was scammed, just as it is being scammed right now by those who don’t want to see GREATNESS for AMERICA!” Trump, currently a Republican candidate in the 2024 presidential race, wrote in a statement on Truth Social.

The Durham Report

The former president’s response came shortly after the Department of Justice (DOJ) published the long-awaited Durham report (pdf) on Monday afternoon. The report found flaws in the FBI’s 2016–17 investigation into the Trump campaign, which, Durham wrote, was based on unvetted and since disproven allegations that Trump colluded with Russian entities.

The Trump campaign said the report shows the existence of a coordinated campaign “peddling disinformation to defraud voters in 2016” and to remove Trump from the presidency after he won the election.

Trump’s Response

“This totally illegal act had a huge impact on the Election. With an honest Media, we are looking at the Crime of the Century!”

The former president’s response came shortly after the Department of Justice (DOJ) published the long-awaited Durham report (pdf) on Monday afternoon. The report found flaws in the FBI’s 2016–17 investigation into the Trump campaign, which, Durham wrote, was based on unvetted and since disproven allegations that Trump colluded with Russian entities.

“The Durham Report spells out in great detail the Democrat Hoax that was perpetrated upon me and the American people. This is 2020 Presidential Election Fraud, just like ‘stuffing’ the ballot boxes, only more so,” Trump wrote in another statement.

Durham’s Findings

In his report, Durham concluded that “neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.” Crossfire Hurricane is the FBI’s codename for the agency’s investigation of the Trump campaign.

The FBI had “significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump’s political opponents,” the report reads.

Furthermore, Durham’s report found that agents “repeatedly disregarded important requirements” when they made surveillance requests on the Trump campaign—initiated under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act—in the absence of a “genuine belief” that there was a probable cause to investigate the target.

It added: “Our investigation also revealed that senior FBI personnel displayed a serious lack of analytical rigor towards the information that they received, especially information received from politically affiliated persons and entities.”

On these grounds, the special counsel wrote in his report that DOJ and the FBI “failed to uphold their important mission” of following the law in its investigation of the Trump campaign.

Trump Campaign’s Response

“This report proves there was a coordinated effort by Never Trump activists in the government to falsely accuse President Trump through lies and deceit,” Steven Cheung, Trump campaign spokesman, told The Epoch Times in a text message following the release of the Durham report.

“The Russia Collusion Hoax was masterminded by Deep State officials at the Department of Justice and the FBI to take away the Presidency from President Trump and the American people,” the spokesperson said.

Conclusion

The Durham report has sparked controversy and debate, with both sides interpreting its findings to support their own narratives. Regardless of one’s political affiliation, it is important to carefully consider the evidence presented and draw one’s own conclusions.
