John Durham’s “dominoes” have finally fallen and there won’t be any criminal charges pressed against anyone. Several high ranking current and former officials appear to be guilty of politically weaponizing the entire “justice” system in order to intentionally influence the 2016 presidential election. They’re going to get away with it because they’re the ones who do the prosecuting.
No charges for the guilty
By now, everyone in America has seen the shocking Durham report headlines and equally shocking lack of charges. The conservative half is demanding to know how come nobody is going off to jail for the things exposed by the special prosecutor. The quick and simple answer is because the rats are in charge of guarding the cheese.
On May 12, 2023, at the conclusion of his Special Counsel investigation, John Durham turned in his final report. He handed it over to Attorney General Merrick Garland and that is the crux of the whole dilemma facing America today.
There won’t be any charges even though Durham’s report proves we have two totally separate systems of “justice.” Hillary got one and Trump got the other. The FBI played the role of “Hillary Clinton Fan Club” to shield her from anything close to a serious and exhaustive probe of the illegal activities she was charged with.

Meanwhile, The FBI went out of their way to use any uncorroborated shred of controversy they could get their hands on to destroy Donald Trump. More importantly they were trying to destroy his chances of being elected and it didn’t work.
The Federal Bureau of Instigation got away with it cold. As Durham concludes with his 316 page investigation report, they continue to get away with it because they’re the ones who do the investigations.
The DOJ simply isn’t going to press charges against themselves. Durham was appointed to investigate Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” into alleged collusion between Donald Trump and Russia in the 2016 election. It was a witch hunt, Durham concluded.
Decline to investigate Clinton
What we now know is that Hillary Clinton was the one colluding with Russia. Durham’s report reveals that the FBI was well aware that Hillary was out to do Trump in politically, using a manufactured Russian collusion claim. The bureau declined to investigate those charges, then turned around and conspired with her campaign to execute the plan.
In March of 2019, Mueller finally admitted that his probe “did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Crossfire Hurricane was a totally different story from the way they handled Hillary’s secret email server. The first question Durham looked into was if the FBI had enough solid evidence to open Crossfire Hurricane in the first place. The short answer to that is “no.”

It also wasn’t anywhere close to “consistent with how the FBI handled other intelligence it had received prior to July 31, 2016 concerning attempts by foreign interests to influence the Clinton and other campaigns.” There won’t be any charges for that. Simply because, as the Clinesmith and Sussmann cases proved, they won’t stick.
Durham concludes that the FBI had practically nothing when they opened the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Nothing except the emails between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok showing how much hostility the FBI had toward Donald Trump. The matter was opened as a full investigation without ever having spoken to the persons who provided the information.
There was no “significant review of its own intelligence databases,” “collection and examination of any relevant intelligence from other U.S. intelligence entities,” or “interviews of witnesses essential to understand the raw information it had received.” The FBI didn’t use “any of the standard analytical tools typically employed by the FBI in evaluating raw intelligence.” The were determined to press some charges even if they had to engineer the crimes to do it.
Christopher Steele and friends
Durham has some interesting things to say about the dirty dossier. “Our investigation determined that the Crossfire Hurricane investigators did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations contained in the Steele reporting. Nor was Steele able to produce corroboration for any of the reported allegations, even after being offered $1 million or more by the FBI for such corroboration.”
They did press charges against DOJ lawyer Kevin Clinesmith and he practically skated on evidence forgery.
The FBI was fed the Steele Dossier on July 5, 2016 but “it was not until mid-September that the Crossfire Hurricane investigators received several of the Steele Reports.” As soon as the file came in the door they rushed to FISA court for a wiretap on Page.

That was an especially sneaky move, Durham points out, because “this was done at a time when the FBI knew that the same information Steele had provided to the FBI had also been fed to the media and others in Washington, D.C.” There won’t be any charges for that.
Igor Danchenko turned out to be the one who cooked up everything in Steele’s bogus report. Later, under oath but also granted immunity, Danchenko confessed “his interactions with his sub-sources” were basically “rumor and speculation” and “conversations of a casual nature.” Friends in Russian intelligence wanted to see how outrageous they could be and get away with it. They got away with all of it.
“At no time, however, was the FISC informed of these inconsistencies. Moreover, notwithstanding the repeated assertions in the Page FISA applications that Steele’s primary sub-source was based in Russia, Danchenko for many years had lived in the Washington, D.C. area.” Lying to a judge is generally frowned upon but the FBI makes their own rules. That’s why there won’t be any charges.
