STRZOK: ‘There’s Nothing to This But We Have to Run it to the Ground.’

The Durham Report Drops And Proves What the GOP Knew All Along.

The Durham Report has landed —and it’s explosive. Special Counsel John Durham found that intelligence agencies never had credible evidence to open a probe into Donald Trump, fueling the fire that some of our most trusted government agencies are weaponized and politicized.

From The Durham Report:

“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,” Durham wrote.

“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.”

That’s pretty damning stuff —but it’s hardly being covered by the mainstream media. And where it is getting covered, it’s getting downplayed and spun severely.

Ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was referenced in Special Counsel John Durham’s report Monday, told MSNBC host Joy Reid the report “never should have” been made.

“This is a predictable sad ending to an investigation that never should have taken place,” Strzok told Reid. “Shortly after [Durham] was announced in 2019, he went on the record as a prosecutor making a rare public statement that he disagreed with IG Horowitz’s conclusion that the investigation was appropriately launched and then he spent the next three to four years with a cognitive bias trying to build a case that somehow it was. We saw the results today, and the results are clearly that he didn’t come up with anything.”

As Fox News reminds us, “Although Strzok accused Durham of being influenced by bias, Strzok himself was previously fired from the FBI after perceived bias against Trump during the ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation. In 2018, multiple anti-Trump texts from Strzok were discovered from 2016. One of the texts showed Strzok asserting to former FBI lawyer Lisa Page that ‘we won’t allow’ Trump to become president.”

Reid noted that Durham referenced Strzok in his report, saying, “Our investigation gathered evidence that showed a number of those closest to the investigation believed that the standard arguably had not been met, even Strzok, who drafted and approved the opening EC (Electronic Communication), said there’s nothing to this but we have to run it to ground.”

Strzok has his story, and he’s sticking to it. Meanwhile, former President Trump says there must be “a heavy price to pay” for the damage done by “Crossfire Hurricane.”

“I, and much more importantly, the American public have been victims of this long-running and treasonous charade started by the Democrats — started by Comey,” Trump told Fox News Digital. “There must be a heavy price to pay for putting our country through this.”

The FBI released a statement acknowledging “missteps” in the wake of the Durham drop.

“The conduct in 2016 and 2017 that Special Counsel Durham examined was the reason that current FBI leadership already implemented dozens of corrective actions, which have now been in place for some time. Had those reforms been in place in 2016, the missteps identified in the report could have been prevented,” the statement said.

“This report reinforces the importance of ensuring the FBI continues to do its work with the rigor, objectivity, and professionalism the American people deserve and rightly expect,” the statement continued.

A small statement that likely won’t make this big problem go away. The GOP will want to clean house at the DOJ now more than ever.
