John Durham’s Recent Clinton Findings Ignored by Mainstream Media: Republicans

Republicans seized on a recent court filing submitted by special prosecutor John Durham that alleged the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee tried to infiltrate Trump campaign and White House servers, arguing that mainstream news outlets are avoiding covering Durham’s findings.

“A tech company hacked the White House and spied on a sitting President. This should concern everyone. But the mainstream media refuses to cover it,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wrote on Twitter. The lawmaker made similar comments during a Fox News appearance on Feb. 14.

“Yep, there was spying going on, and it was worse than we thought because they were spying on the sitting ​president of the United States,” Jordan told “Fox & Friends.” “And it goes right to the Clinton campaign.”

Durham’s Feb. 11 motion was connected to lawyer Michael Sussman, a former Perkins Coie lawyer who was charged in 2021 with lying to the FBI when he allegedly told the bureau that he wasn’t working for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign when he had given the agency now-debunked documents that allegedly linked the Trump Organization to a Russian bank. Sussmann has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty in the case.

Meanwhile, Rep. Michael Turner (R-Ohio) said on Feb. 13 that the investigation uncovered a “new level of corruption” that raises “grave” concerns.

“I mean, this is a threat to our democracy itself,” Turner told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “It doesn’t matter really which political campaign this is or which political party this is. This is so wrong and allegations of such ​a ​level of illegal activity that goes directly to our faith in our own government that the truth must be found​.”

Sussmann, according to the recent filing, “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign​.” Records also show that he “repeatedly billed” the campaign for his work regarding the allegations around Trump and the Russian bank.

“In connection with these efforts, Tech Executive-1 exploited his access to non-public and/or proprietary Internet data,” his filing ​stated. “Tech Executive-1 also enlisted the assistance of researchers at a U.S.-based university who were receiving and analyzing large amounts of Internet data in connection with a pending federal government cybersecurity research contract.”

Over the past weekend, former President Donald Trump issued a statement saying Durham’s court filing corroborates his longtime claims that his 2016 campaign and presidency were subject to a widespread pressure campaign directed against him for holding unorthodox views. He also faulted the media for its coverage.

“It shows how totally corrupt and shameless the media is,” Trump said in the statement. “Can you imagine if the roles were reversed and the Republicans, in particular President Donald Trump, got caught illegally spying into the Office of the President? All hell would break loose and the electric chair would immediately come out of retirement. The good news is, everybody is talking about not only this atrocity against our Nation, but that the press refuses to even mention the major crime that took place.”

So the Clinton campaign not only spied on Trump during the campaign, but they continued to spy on President Trump after he was elected in the Oval Office. All of which is completely illegal and depending on which legal scholar you ask, would potentially constitute treason for spying on a sitting President. It certainly violates dozens of federal laws on the books. All of which would constitute proof of criminal activity by Hillary Clinton, who paid Sussman through her campaign, as well as all the people who actively participated in this criminal effort.

So bottom line, of course the MSM will ignore and actively work to bury or discredit this latest finding from the Durham investigation as it 1) goes against the narrative the MSM has been peddling for the last 5 years, 2) would tarnish all the reputations of all the media people and networks who won Emmys and Pulitzers for fabricating and endlessly perpetuating the lies against President Trump that Clinton was selling, 3) partially exposes the broader level of corruption within the FBI, DOJ and CIA, along with individuals in the telco companies that violated multiple federal security laws around the interception and dissemination of classified data (by law all digital information associated with the active POTUS is deemed classified data) to parties intent on the overthrow of an active POTUS.

I suspect the next course of action by MSM will be to quickly repeat what they did regarding Hunter’s laptop. First ignore it. Then try to discredit any stories that leak out about Durham’s findings and finally parade a punch of academics and other so-called “experts” on every MSM TV news show to say it is all a big nothing burger and everyone should just ignore it. Hey, it worked for successfully burying all the documented evidence of the entire Biden family’s corruption going back years and years, so there is a high probability most of the American people will be dumb enough to fall for that play again.

I have NO EXPECTATION that anyone like Clinton, Clapper, Brennan, etc. will see either the inside of a federal court room or a federal prison cell anytime soon. No one high up in the MSM will be held accountable either. At best if the powers that be need to sacrifice someone to make people think justice was done, they will pick some low-level fall guy no one ever heard of to say he acted alone to take the fall on some minor federal charges in exchange for a few million waiting for him when he gets out of prison. Either that or the poor schlub just tragically dies in prison by “suicide”. In any event, this process by Durham is taking way too long. Which is allowing all guilty parties involved ample time to bury everything under the rug. Sorry I just can’t be more excited about this news.

YET FACEBOOK had it on their server. All in Capital letters I might add, in their headline. It was under their news articles along with the doping scandal of the Russian skater. They had the complete article too. Over 500,000 readers had read it by the time I had and all had a horrified expression or an angry expression on it. There were no likes. Guess they didn’t want to play favorites since they have been in trouble so much.

So, now will all of the awards and accolades given out for all the great coverage of the “Breaking News” on Trump’s guilt get removed from those who “earned” them ??? Seriously, lie and win an award, a Nobel Prize at that, for such great reporting on the facts!! Should be a lot of shameful guilt running around this country today….!! ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and so many news papers! I do hope you can look your family and friends in the eye and maybe say, “Sorry, got it wrong!”

Of course it was ignored. It showed that HILLDOG Clinton Treasonous Traitor’s GUILTY along with the rest of ITS TROLLS.
The FAKE liberals News Networks ONLY tell LIES.
This EVIDENCE should be running 24/7 on EVERY News Network just like they did when PRESIDENT TRUMP had 2 Ice Cream Scoops for his desert at lunch and everybody else only ate one.
Remember how FAKE Communist News Network made such a big deal over that and broadcast the report for months 24/7? But HUSSEIN Obama, HILLDOG Clinton, and DICTATOR Beijing biden with COMMUNIST harris, SWAMP QUEEN pelosi, and the rest of the SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST Party can NEVER do anything wrong with their FAKE News backup who is in their back pocket.
They keep proving my point on how THEY KEEP LYING and are YELLOW-BELLY COWARDS.

Let the FAKE News CLUCK on that.

MSM has no interest what so ever in presenting any truth of any kind in any shape or form. That is their bread and butter. Why would any of us expect them to change their spots….aside from the occasional phony change that is cautiously submitted without threatening their ratings and relationship with the liberals. They are no longer of value to this nation….propaganda is their business now.
Durham is going to come under some kind of personal or political attack in due time, especially as he
gets closer to facts that the left does not want revealed. I’m still waiting for someone to name names, shine the light on the liars and “roaches” who still operate in the dark shadows. If we don’t clean house soon, we won’t be able too.

These findings make me so angry! The MSM is complacent in these evil tactics! What Hillary and Democrats did to the Trump campaign and his presidency is a lot worse than Watergate! I hope this investigation keeps going and the truth gets out so those involve end up in jail!!! Until we hold those accountable, this kind of corruption will continue!!! If Democrats can’t win an election fairly and accept losses graciously, they should no longer be trusted with any government position! I’d say the same if Republicans stopped to this evil too!

Totalitarianism works to install the Socialistic indoctrinated weak and deviant minded youth into Main Stream Media positions to carry out the Dictatorship’s orders. The current MSM is owned by the global Cabal. Pres. Trump was right to call them ‘fake news.’ Anything the Tyrants now running this country tell the media to do, they do without question because I’m sure they’re told they would be smeared or disappear. When you have brush cleared in your yard, you get goats to take care of it. They also eat garbage. The ‘Goats’ on the Left, all our indoctrinated, as well as just plain uneducated and stupid people are feeding on the garbage the MSM dishes out. If something doesn’t change sooner than later, there will be no turning back. Acceptance of societal deviance and an attitude of entitlement are what our youth are being taught in the schools, and now beginning in preschool. This is abhorrent to anyone who has strong moral Christian beliefs. But now our faith is under attack. These morally deficient people with few working brain cells still think they can kill God. They’ll never get it, but we know that what God has told us in His word we can believe it! Those on Christ’s left, (the goats), will be told to depart into the lake of fire where the beast and the false prophet are, and those on His right, (the Sheep), He will welcome into the blessed Kingdom of His Father to live forever.
In the mean time, we do what the Lord asks of us, to keep our eyes on Him and to ‘keep watch!’

Concerning the Democrats, remember God is in control. He uses evil for his good!!!!! I pray for President Trump and his family. President Trump was placed in office by God. He protected out country. All evil rulers have fallen in past history. Hitler had 3 million soldiers, and he did not prevail against God. God Bless America! God Bless our Country!

What the Democrats and their deep state accomplishes did was blatantly treasonous and is worthy of the death penalty. Hundreds of those at every level of our government, including the various security agencies who were involved in the attacks on Donald Trump should be executed. That would include Joe & Hunter Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Jim Comey, and many others. We all know who they are. They have attempted a coup, and a prison sentence does not begin to be severe enough for what they have done. The executives and talking heads of every news network that was involved should be included in the executions. It should be done in accordance with the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution, and it should be done conspicuously on national TV.

The Durham investigation is tired and old. Nothing will ever come of it. The opportunity has past.
We all know the dems tried any and all illegal efforts to tie Trump to Russia “collusion” ( whatever that meant) but no one in DC cares. “Collusion” gave the left media something to talk about for 3
years. The media depended on “collusion” to stay alive. This case was assigned to Durham to make it go away and it has.

This is now officially a bonafide banana republic political system,There’s more evidence against Hillary Clinton than they had with watergate times ten. Our FBI andCIA are nothing more than DNC operatives and are filthy rich after knowingly and willingly undermining our sitting president with totally fabricated documents. This is a dangerous and blatant misuse of there positions and is totally unacceptable. These progressive Marxist democrats are beyond distain and have zero regard or respect for anyone or anything. Guaranteed this is business as usual for these power hungry leftists and there not even worried about anything they fabricate or do. Hillary is a extremely smart and very determined political figure and she’s right now trying to figure out a scheme to be our next POTUS, Might be the better of two extremely dangerous evils, Biden is a bumbling fool and besides literally destroying our capitalist system is going to put us into another world war.

I believe that these findings that are coming to light, including what we have learned so far about widespread 2020 election fraud, are showing that Trump was and is right about all that he has alleged throughout his presidency and to this very day! I would not doubt that there was fraud in the 2016 election as well and that Trump actually may have won by a wider margin and may have even carried the popular vote.

If half of this report is factual why isn’t Clinton cartel wearing orange suits setting in some nice federal prison? Oh wait, all the folks that would prosecute them are neck deep involved in this illegal activity. There are truly two Americas. We are no longer a nation of laws. Unelected people are circumventing our Constitution through illegal mandates and regulations that have the the impact of law. I hope the America I grew up with and love will wake up soon shake the scales off their eyes unstop the ears and demand justice be done. But I wouldn’t hold my breath. This current America is a joke.

Anyone who’s followed the corrupt political careers of the Clintons can clearly see that lies, betrayal and self serving interests have followed them from the beginning and because our MSM has become enmeshed in all things DNC the truth will never be revealed by any of these fake journalists. Besides, let Hillary run for President again and be soundly defeated again it’s the best the democrats can do following a stolen election!

It’s been ( 6 ) plus years & not a single individual has been held accountable. Looking back to Nixon’s Watergate scandal, what Hillary Clinton has perpetuated makes Nixon look like a choir boy…
Will she ever be indicted, let alone charged with a crime?; not likely, however don’t expect to see her running for politics ever again, she is basically spoiled meat at this juncture, game over, shut up & go away please…
God bless America & yes President Trump won in a landslide reelection in 2020. What is America prepared to do about this?
Meanwhile Biden & his puppet masters, i.e. the former Obama administration are going through the ” Wag The Dog ” motions with respect to Ukraine’s borders whilst our own borders are left WIDE OPEN with foreign invaders walking right in, 24/7…

Democrats live in a dream world where what is wrong is right and what is right is wrong. They have lost total connection with reality and it proves that when you lie long enough you believe the lies to be true. Sadly, many Republicans act the same way but for a different reason. It is not that they don’t understand reality, for they clearly do, but they are owned by the lobbyists who pay them to carry their baggage and vote for bad proposals, ones that undermine the very causes their party was created to take care of many years ago. Those same causes are why their voters voted for them, so they are being adversely impacted as well. Trump’s desire to clean the swamp is the only solution and until voters take the time to realize the truth, America as we love it is toast..
