(LibertySociety.com) – The report released by Special Counsel John Durham has prompted even the toughest critics to publicly admit that the FBI made multiple grave mistakes when they decided to investigate the Trump campaign for collusion with Russia. Jake Tapper of CNN, who is no fan of the former president, said on air on May 15th, 2023, that “to a degree it does exonerate Donald Trump,” while also noting that the report is “devastating to the FBI.”
Tapper did not commit much time to the matter, although he did open his show with details of the report, highlighting the fact that Trump’s supporters always believed that he was innocent and that Special Counsel Durham would ultimately prove that. While most networks published stories about Durham’s findings, MSNBC took another route by interviewing Andrew Weissman, who previously worked on the Russia investigation under Robert Mueller. Weissman claimed that the Durham report was a “big fat nothing.”
Catherine Herridge from CBS News wrote a lengthy article detailing the Durham investigation from its inception until the release of the report. Other outlets, such as the New York Times, ultimately updated their readers on the outcome of the investigation. However, a May 17 analysis from the outlet called it an underwhelming conclusion to a years-long investigation due to the lack of new revelations.
Former President Donald Trump and other Republicans believe that the officials who opened the investigation should be held accountable, with the 45th President calling it “treason” and blasting the agency for what they put the American people through. Some lawmakers have called for the FBI to be cleaned out from top to bottom to prevent something like this from ever happening again.
