Remember Lesley Stahl when Trump said his campaign was spied on: “This is ’60 Minutes.’ We can’t put on things we can’t verify.”
Have you noticed that liberal media outlets are largely ignoring the latest findings of the Durham Investigation? It should come as no surprise.
They talked and reported obsessively over any new development about the Trump Russia collusion hoax, but look the other way on Durham.
Over the last few years, when they did talk about Durham, it was to downplay the investigation.
Angelica Stabile reports at FOX News:
’60 Minutes,’ CNN, MSNBC, downplayed, criticized Durham probe of Russia investigation
The mainstream media is getting a wake-up call after new allegations in the Durham investigation that President Trump and his campaign were being spied on.
Special Counsel John Durham released in a filing Saturday that the Hillary Clinton campaign hired techs to “infiltrate” Trump Tower and White House servers to establish a “narrative” to link Trump to Russia. The new findings contradict various doubtful media coverage from programs like CBS’ “60 Minutes.”
In an October 2020 interview, Trump appeared on the newsmagazine to address the ongoing investigation and his claim his campaign was spied on. He was shot down by host Lesley Stahl, who insisted the president was spreading unverified information.
“There’s no real evidence,” she said. “This is ’60 Minutes.’ We can’t put on things we can’t verify.”
Meanwhile, former CNN dynamic duo Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo criticized John Durham and the Trump administration back in December 2019 for being adamant about uncovering the truth, yet coming up short.

Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner takes us a bit further down memory lane:
No spying on Trump? 35 times Big Media lied
In his latest court filings, special counsel John Durham isn’t just taking down team Clinton’s wall of defense against charges of spying on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, but he’s revealing just how vigorously the liberal media worked to hold that wall up.
Over five years, news personalities on the “Big Three” networks and left-leaning cable channels repeatedly dismissed the charges. “There was no spying” was heard as often as Trump’s claim of “fake news.”
But now that Durham has suggested a pattern of spying on Trump’s home, campaign, and White House, media critics such as the Media Research Center are reminding the public just how much the pro-Clinton media lathered on the “no spying” lie.
This video is really something to behold.
