“Durham’s team also reportedly looked into a number of other issues … that Trump has publicly denounced — without indictment. This includes potential wrongdoing by the CIA and other parts of the US intelligence community on issues related to Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election in favor of Trump. connected”.
It’s also worth remembering here what the FBI’s original counterintelligence investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election actually found: that Russia actively sought to interfere in our election with the express purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton. They did so because they believed Trump would be better for their interests.
So it’s not over yet, and that’s all.
But what seems clear is that all of Trump’s announcement of the Durham probe has been empty. Three low-level indictments are not a “century crime,” as Trump has said. Nothing that has come out so far suggests that Hillary Clinton or anyone in her orbit had anything to do with the start of the FBI’s counterintelligence operation to look into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
These facts, of course, will not interfere with Trump’s ongoing obsession. Lately, he’s been using his Truth Social platform to vilify the Justice Department and, if the Durham probe turns out to be nothing more than a hamburger, he’ll likely insist he’s rigged the department against him.
Evidence for that claim? non-existent But that won’t stop his core from believing in him. Like they did about it being the thing that would blow the lid on the whole big conspiracy of people to get that Durham probe out, or something.
