Durham Report: “The FBI Discounted or Willfully Ignored Material information that did Not Support the Narrative of a Collusive Relationship Between Trump and Russia”

Durham Report: “The FBI Discounted or Willfully Ignored Material information that did Not Support the Narrative of a Collusive Relationship Between Trump and Russia”

“…it seems highly likely that, at a minimum, confirmation bias played a significant role in the FBI’s acceptance of extraordinarily serious allegations derived from uncorroborated information…”

Special Counsel John Durham’s final report showed everyone what we already knew: There was no collusion between Trump and Russia in 2016 or ever.

It was all a lie. The FBI, DOJ, Democrats, and those suffering from TDS didn’t care.

Thank you, TechnoFog, for highlighting the key points!


Given the foregoing, and viewing the facts in a light most favorable to the Crossfire Hurricane investigators, it seems highly likely that, at a minimum, confirmation bias played a significant role in the FBI’s acceptance of extraordinarily serious allegations derived from uncorroborated information that had not been subjected to the typical exacting analysis employed by the FBI and other members of the Intelligence Community. In short, it is the Office’s assessment that the FBI discounted or willfully ignored material information that did not support the narrative of a collusive relationship between Trump and Russia. Similarly, the FBI Inspection Division Report says that the investigators “repeatedly ignore[ d] or explain[ ed] away evidence contrary to the theory the Trump campaign … had conspired with Russia …. It appeared that … there was a pattern of assuming nefarious intent.” An objective and honest assessment of these strands of information should have caused the FBI to question not only the predication for Crossfire Hurricane, but also to reflect on whether the FBI was being manipulated for political or other purposes. Unfortunately, it did not.

Two CLINTON Investigations

Did you know the FBI had two investigations into Hillary Clinton? Yup! Agents investigated the Clinton Foundation and alleged “illegal foreign contributions to Clinton’s campaign.”

Three different FBI field offices had investigations into the Clinton Foundation over allegations such as “foreign governments that had made, or offered to make, contributions to the Foundation in exchange for favorable or preferential treatment from Clinton.”

FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe told the offices to shut down the investigations in February 2016. Agents said no, so McCabe then said they had to get his approval to proceed with any investigative steps.

Then FBI Director James Comey made the New York field office stop its investigation.

The report details three instances of a “threat of foreign election influence by” foreign governments regarding Clinton’s campaign. It had nothing to do with Trump.

Instead, “both senior FBI and Department officials placed restrictions on how those matters were to be handled such that essentially no investigative activities occurred for months leading up to the election.”

But the FBI and DOJ had no problem diving into an investigation over a relationship between Trump and Russia.

The Clinton Campaign Plan to Tie Russia to Trump

The Clinton Campaign Plan came to be after Hillary approved a proposal “to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services.”

President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Attorney General Loretta Lynch all received briefings on the supposed intelligence from the Clinton Campaign Plan along with the CIA and FBI.

However, the FBI never vetted the information:

The Office located no evidence that in conducting the Crossfire Hurricane investigation the FBI considered whether and how the Clinton Plan intelligence might impact the investigation. No FBI personnel who were interviewed by the Office recalled Crossfire Hurricane personnel taking any action to vet the Clinton Plan intelligence. 422 For example, Brian Auten stated that he could not recall anything that the FBI did to analyze, or otherwise consider the Clinton Plan intelligence, stating that it was “just one data point.”

This stands in sharp contrast to its substantial reliance on the uncorroborated Steele Reports, which at least some FBI personnel appeared to know was likely being funded or promoted by the Clinton campaign.

Carter Page FISA Warrant

Durham found out that Comey micromanaged the investigation. Let’s look at the Carter Page FISA warrant.

The FBI agents doubted Page’s warrant and that doubt grew as the investigation grew. The agents “relied substantially on the reports to assert probable cause that Page was knowingly engaged in clandestine intelligence activities on behalf of Russia, or knowingly helping another person in such activities.”

And yet none of them could “corroborate a single substantive allegation contained in the Steele Reports, despite protracted efforts to do so.” From the report (emphasis mine):

Moreover, significant intelligence information that first became available for the FBI to review in 2018 showed that the Russians had access to sensitive U.S. government information years earlier that would have allowed them to identify Steele’s subsources. Indeed, an experienced FBI analyst assessed that as a result of their access to the information, Steele’s subsources could have been compromised by the Russians at a point in time prior to the date of the first Steele dossier report.  The review team initially briefed Counterintelligence and Cyber executive management about their findings during a conference call. Following the call, while driving home, Headquarters Analyst-3 was called by Acting Section Chief-2. Acting Section Chief-2 told Headquarters Analyst-3 that they appreciated the team’s work, but no more memorandums were to be written. A meeting was then held with Assistant Director Priestap and others. During that meeting, the review team was told to be careful about what they were writing down because issues relating to Steele were under intense scrutiny. Two weeks later, the Deputy Assistant Director for Counterintelligence, Dina Corsi, met with the review team and directed them not to document any recommendations, context, or analysis in the memorandum they were preparing. The instructions, which Headquarters Analyst-3 described as “highly unusual,” concerned the team because analysis is what analysts do. Although the team did not fully adhere to that instruction because ofthe need to provide context to the team’s findings, they did tone down their conclusions in the final memorandum. Headquarters Analyst-3 recalled that a separate briefing on the review was eventually provided by the team in the Deputy Director’s conference room, although Headquarters Analyst-3 could not recall if Deputy Director David Bowdich attended the briefing. Headquarters Analyst-3 did know that Bowdich was aware of the review itself.

Igor Danchenko

Durham indicted Danchenko, a primary subsource, in 2021 for allegedly making false statements to the FBI. He was found not guilty.

The FBI seemed to like him, though, despite placing him under investigation from 2009-2011. The agency used him after identifying him in 2017 as Steele’s source for the dossier.

However, in January 2017, Danchenko could not “provide any corroborative evidence related to any substantive allegation contained in the Steele Reports – and critically- was unable to corroborate any of the FBI’s assertions contained in the Carter Page FISA applications.”

That didn’t matter because the FBI recruited Danchenko as a source and put him on the books in March 2017. The agency completely ignored warnings about him or the previous investigation. They paid him $220,000 for three years. They also wanted to keep paying him, “totaling more than $300,000,” as Durham investigated the collusion case.

The FBI kept paying Danchenko even after they found out he lied to them. Ridiculous.

“It is extremely concerning that the FBI failed to deal with the prior unresolved counterespionage case on Danchenko,” wrote Durham. “Given Danchenko’s known contacts with Russian intelligence officers and his documented prior pitch for classified information, the Crossfire Hurricane team’s failure to properly consider and address the espionage case prior to opening Danchenko as a CHS is difficult to explain, particularly given their awareness that Danchenko was the linchpin to the uncorroborated allegations contained in the Steele Reports.”

Covid made it near impossible to collect the needed evidence here.

Maybe a GOP Congress could pass a special law to extend the statute of limitations so there can be indictments, and then repeal the law like it never existed.

Of course, if anyone wants to know why we are on the precipice, the Durham report will provide great context, bookended by the Twitter Files. Like Biden’s corruption, however, the truth will hardly see the light of day, and the dupes will crow about the virtue of their side, when they should be ashamed at their own ignorance in supporting or tolerating the anti-democratic and deceptive actions of their leaders.

In an ideal world the truth would see the light of day. Sadly, this is a world of illusion where ideal is defined by liars.

A transparently contrived dirty tricks sabotage operation cooked up by the crone Clinton campaign, with an assist from narcissist-incompetent, Obama’s, lackeys in DOJ and the FBI. With the water-carrying, mainstream media lapdogs/trained seals/sycophants dutifully parroting the allegations and accusations, no matter how manifestly contrived.

And, none of these lawless bastards will ever be held accountable for this outrageous subversion of democratic process — one thousand times worse than Watergate, in terms of the breadth and scope of illegality and the damage done to a presidential candidate’s campaign, and, a President’s administration and agenda.

He is the rightful President of the United States. THAT was a soft coup.

    Especially when the Oval Office meeting of Jan 6, 2017 is put into the mix.

    Second one in our history. The first coup was the murder of JFK.

      henrybowman in reply to | May 15, 2023 at 9:08 pm

      Third. The one in the middle was Watergate.

        guyjones in reply to henrybowman. | May 15, 2023 at 9:29 pm

        Correct me if I’m wrong, but, the latest revelations about Watergate indicate that the CIA set up Nixon, completely — is that your understanding, as well?

          henrybowman in reply to guyjones. | May 15, 2023 at 9:46 pm

          The latest revelations I heard was that the “plumbers” and their management team contained an unusual number of covert US intelligence operatives. So maybe yes.

          I believe I was aware of that fact as far back as the mid ’70s. At the time, I naturally assumed they were experts “on the White House team.” It’s only with the past 15 years of hindsight that the opposite explanation began to make even more sense.

          gonzotx in reply to guyjones. | May 15, 2023 at 9:54 pm

          Yes they did

          alaskabob in reply to guyjones. | May 16, 2023 at 12:59 pm

          Nixon told the CIA director he knew the CIA had murdered JFK. And then came Watergate. Yes, McGovern was a dangerous candidate as very sympathetic to communism, but Nixon was on a roll as the election showed. Rush wondered if the CIA cooked the Iraqi WMD intel to lure GWB into a war.

      It was the establishment of *The Fed* that was the first coup and they STILL don’t have any oversight.

    gonzotx in reply to wendybar. | May 15, 2023 at 9:54 pm


The next GOP president must raze the FBI HQ to the ground and salt the earth on which it stood. This agency is clearly irreparably corrupt and can’t change its transformation into the Dumb-o-crat Party’s secret police arm.

A long time coming. Probably won’t be any earth shattering confessions as a result of soul searching by the perpetrators of the ‘Russia collusion hoax’, aka mainstream media. They have likely long suspected they were sold a pack of lies. The constant drip of info here and there for years and all of it going in the direction of undermining this travesty. The IC is beyond redemption.

They very likely suspected from the start that, at best, this story was a ‘false but true’ pack of lies but told the story to their readers and viewers b/c it hurt the other team and helped their team. So this report demonstrating how badly wrong and intentionally so they were will be cast as mistakes were made. Then empty promises will be made about reform of internal procedures and they will move on.

JackinSilverSpring | May 15, 2023 at 8:05 pm

The FBI delende est. As for the DOJ, it must be thoroughly reconstituted with all new personnel.

The media is really downplaying the issues with the whole thing saying nobody got charged or anything meaningful and no one has been convicted.

This looks pretty much like what has been known, or at least strongly suspected, for years, presented far too late to do anything about it but fire the perps if and when another Republican ever becomes president.

Are we at the point when we are ready to admit that our government is entirely illegitimate? That the people who have gained power the manipulated elections have also weaponized the law enforcement agencies?

What is to be done?

We are in one of the darkest periods in history, where the original principles of Americanism seem farther away than ever. We are outdoing Orwell himself.

The problem with free societies is that freedom extends to abusers who use it to attack freedom. A necessary evil that requires vigilance and transparency.

If enough people do not start to recognize that it’s really not about the conveniences and addiction of of cell phones, then woke totalitariansm will become the norm.

Imagine what Trump might have accomplished if the Establishment had not tried to cheat and remove him. He spent as much time fighting them as Biden spends on vacation.

I just want to throw up my hands … and weep.

. . . no action to vet the Clinton Plan intel . . .

As in the FBI taking no action to vet the information on Hunter Biden’s computer.

I don’t want to appear to be a conspiracy theorist, but . . .

Timely justice!
No, wait, this is the opposite of that.

Exactly as predicted.

He lays out a litany of exactly how the FBI utterly ignored their own procedures to keep pushing this crap, used information they KNEW was fake to get a secret FISA warrant to spy on him, and then at the end decides ‘well gee guys I don’t actually recommend the FBI do anything differently’.

Exactly as predicted, Durham is nothing but a RINO piece of crap executing a coverup to ‘clear’ the FBI.

A whole bunch of Democrats are already screaming that because of Durham’s BS that this ‘exonerates’ the FBI.

God I am so sick of being right about the useless RINO pieces of trash.

You don’t say

But Durham couldn’t make any recommendations to make things better at the FBI/CIA


The FBI burned decades worth of good will and reputation (or whatever they still had) in order to pursue and destroy Trump, along with any supporter, potential staff member, donor, ally, or just anybody who didn’t hate him. Any scrap of fantasy that made him look bad they took as gold, and anything that countered that delicate house of cards they took great care to ignore or bury.

Every name of every leader of the FBI during this time should be scraped off the rolls, piled in the courtyard, and used as paving stones. Everybody is an example, some positive, some negative. These guys were pure negativity.

    The “Fumbling Bumbling Idiots” or “Fools Bozos Imbeciles” (take your pick) don’t deserve our respect and support. The leadership should be shot for treason. I wonder how the rank and file agents really feel about their corrupt-to-the-core organization.

At least Durham didn’t pretend, as Barr eventually did, that the CIA “stayed in its lane.”

It’s time for the House to call on Obama, Clinton, and Comey to testify under oath.

    And only YEARS too late. But that was the whole point of Durham’s bogus investigation. To push the whole thing down the road so far that nothing will be done to punish the guilty. And Durham succeeded beyond his wildest dreams and now can retire knowing he successfully covered for the democrats.

    • Nobody will be getting early morning raids by by the FBI thug mobs
    • Nobody will be getting indicted
    • Nobody will be getting perp walked out of their homes
    • Nobody will be taken to court
    • Nobody will be sentenced to prison for their illegal acts and actions

    That kind of thing only happens to republicans. It will just be business as usual for the democrats.

    Thanks for nothing Durham. You might as well have not bothered with your “final report” for all the good it will do.

So when will there be ANY punishment? There won’t be. The law is such a farce. GEE … I wonder if there would be any punishment if a DNC office were to be firebombed? I wonder if there would be any punishment if a FBI office were to be firebombed? Asking for a friend. LOL. Our forefathers are spinning in their graves.

If all the bad guys walk, as per custom, who cares if they’re chastised in some belated report?

When is he going to confirm Newton’s law of gravity?

“…it seems highly likely that, at a minimum, confirmation bias played a significant role in the FBI’s acceptance of extraordinarily serious allegations derived from uncorroborated information…” The Durham Report

No. It wasn’t ‘just’ a lie or even confirmation bias. It was a criminal conspiracy driven by the DNC, the Clinton Campaign and aided and abetted, at every turn, by Congressional Democrats and the ‘Deep State’, which is totally controlled by deeply embedded and highly partisan Democrats. Since ferreting out and firing these miscreants is nigh onto impossible the answer is the dismantling of their habitat; the highly UN-Constitutional agencies, bureaus and sinecures that give them cover and resources to wreak havoc and engage in outright coups d’etat.

End it ALL and END IT NOW. Restore American to the Constitutional Republic that we were given by the framers and founders.

I am in a rage right now, even against people here who continually attack a man who had the FBI target him, by merely running for president, and hindered his presidency long before COVID. [And didn’t stop there] A crazy woman [who calls her pet Vagina] wins a verdict against him who did “her patriotic duty” [her words for bringing the case]. He made mistakes, often, but it was not to enrich himself. I don’t like what he did with COVID, but he didn’t make decisions for the purpose of hurting anyone. The vaccine pushers don’t even give him the credit and blame him for people who fought the vaccine. Those Trumpers! Uggh This report is so disconcerting. No one will pay for this, except Trump, who pays every day. So sorry, if R.D. gets his feelings hurt because Trump tries to belittle and mock him. It is more of a wimpy boot camp for what will face RDS if he becomes the nominee.

    bobguzzardi48 in reply to willow. | May 16, 2023 at 10:28 am

    Exactly It was a criminal conspiracy and William Barr’s appointe Special Counsel Durham issued a “mistakes were made” report and all those involved keep their highest level security clearances, their generous pensions, and lucrative private sector contracts.

    Only Donald Trump can take on the Swamp. Trump 2024

    CommoChief in reply to willow. | May 16, 2023 at 11:16 am

    I doubt DeSantis gets in his feels about Trump playing to the Only Trump base with his phrasing. Politically he is doing the smart thing for now in largely ignoring Trump, which likely frustrates Trump b/c he relishes the verbal sparing where he is the center of attention and sends some of his most ardent supporters into a bit of a rage.

    The folks you should worry about are the voters who don’t find Trump’s antics funny anymore and will use it as a reason to vote against him in ’24 just as many of them did in ’20. That is especially so for the folks who voted twice for Trump but who tire of his antics; those are voters who may possibly block Trump from getting the GoP nomination.

    Personally I think Trump’s antics are hilarious. They remind me of the old school pro wrestling promotions. Others don’t find his sarcastic wit and bombastic communication style as admirable as we do and those voters may be the difference.

      venril in reply to CommoChief. | May 16, 2023 at 3:40 pm

      That style was what made him pretty much impervious to the usual attacks.

        CommoChief in reply to venril. | May 16, 2023 at 7:04 pm

        If by he you mean Trump was impervious to attack you are mistaken; a great many voters got turned off by that bombastic style. Particularly so for women in the suburbs.

        A mere 200K votes in 2020 was the difference in retaining the WH, Senate and gaining control of the HoR. Deliberately choosing to offend those 200K voters with a bombastic communication style seems to have been a mistake.

        I would prefer to have my candidates take the oath of office v the d/prog candidates. If that means using less combative language to appease the 200K we needed but didn’t get so be it. There is no substitute for victory and the victors hold office and exercise the power of those offices.

    gonzotx in reply to willow. | May 16, 2023 at 1:49 pm

bobguzzardi48 | May 16, 2023 at 10:23 am

Only reading excerpts and commentary, it appears that Special Counsel Durham did NOT find any criminal intent by any of the high ranking FBI, DoJ or CIA officials involved; “Mistakes were made”; very serious mistakes but no criminal laws were broken. Is that correct? Is that what Special Counsel Durham report says? No crimes were committed; no prosecutions and all involved keep their highest level security clearances and pensions and private sector contracts. .

This is a reminder why Trump 2024 is necessary.

SuddenlyHappyToBeHere | May 16, 2023 at 11:25 am

By the way, whatever happened to Milstein?

In the words of General Akbar, “It’s a trap!”

DNC knows how to manipulate the news cycle to guarantee Republicans nominate DJT as their presidential candidate.

They also know the fake, pernicious legal attacks they have in store imagined to erode DJT’s reputation especially among all the “new” (read: illegal alien) voters.

There is no way the globalists and communists will ever “allow” free and fair elections especially as DJT has proven himself as ther member real enemy.

I have no answers. Just observations from decades of experience.
