The decade's most triggering comedy
Special counsel John Durham’s report on his investigation into the investigators of Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 election is finished.
The report is finished and has been released to several outlets, according to reports. The full report is expected to be released at 4 p.m. EST, according to Fox News.
The Washington Free Beacon’s Chuck Ross reported on Monday afternoon that the “Durham report is finished and dropping soon.” Minutes later, Ross tweeted that he had obtained the report, a 320-page document detailing Durham’s investigation.
“One quick thing that catches my eye: FBI ended one aspect of its investigation after ‘a longtime and valuable confidential human source’ made an ‘improper and possibly illegal campaign contribution’ to the Clinton campaign on behalf of a ‘foreign entity,’” Ross said.
It's a 320-page report. One quick thing that catches my eye: FBI ended one aspect of its investigation after "a longtime and valuable confidential human source" made an "improper and possibly illegal campaign contribution" to the Clinton campaign on behalf of a "foreign entity."

Sean Davis, CEO and co-founder of The Federalist, also obtained a copy of the report. The report says, according to Davis, that 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.”
“FBI records prepared by [former FBI agent Peter] Strzok in February and March 2017 show that at the time of the opening of Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI had no information in its holdings indicating that at any time during the campaign anyone in the Trump had been in contact with any Russian intelligence officials,” the report says.

Durham gave a harsh review of the FBI.
“Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we concluded the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report,” the report says, according to Just The News.
“The FBI personnel also repeatedly disregarded important requirements when they continued to seek renewals of that FISA surveillance while acknowledging – both then and in hindsight – that they did not genuinely believe there was probably cause to believe that the target was knowingly engaged in clandestine intelligence activities on behalf of foreign power,” the report said.
