We all remember when crazy Charlie Manson used a recording of a conversation he had taped with his dog about attending a party at Dennis Wilson’s place on the night of the Sharon Tate murders to vindicate himself from guilt in the crime… and the case against him was dismissed. Or when Al Capone tied a witness into a chair in the courtroom during his trial and threatened to kill the witness and his family if he did not testify in a way that pleased him.
You don’t remember those things?
Because they didn’t happen?
Well, we are not likely to forget the reporting of Politico reporter Betsy Woodruff pointing out to Nicole Wallace that Russian Intelligence produced a report distancing themselves from collusion with the Trump Campaign prior to the 2016 election which Trump himself declassified and which duly made it’s way into the Durham report.
We’ll remember this because it really happened:
“Speaking to MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace shortly after the over 300-page report was released, Politico reporter Betsy Woodruff Swan walked through her observations.
She began with something she said was like a kind of disclaimer directed to Donald Trump himself. The report explained that there were a number of people who probably had bad judgment but that they didn’t break the law.
“He says federal law doesn’t make it illegal for campaigns to engage in unethical or uncomfortable campaign tactics, and he says that prosecutors have to make sure that if they’re charging people with crimes, the charges are against criminal activity,” Woodruff Swan explained. “What’s implicit there is Durham signaling while he found lots of information he believes to be interesting and important, so much of his findings simply did not rise to the level of criminality, and that gets to one really important piece of putting this Durham report in context — which is that it is likely to leave President Trump, former President Trump and his supporters disappointed.”
It is certainly kind of Durham to point out that no laws were broken before he upends his Santa’s bag full of toys coyly alleging that there were upon the nation’s living room floor for the Trumpist brats to play with.
And where did Santa Durham obtain some of his info clearing all the colluders and damning Federal Law enforcement?
“He homes in on intelligence declassified by the Trump administration where the U.S. intelligence community got intelligence from Russia that was Russian intelligence analysis, alleging that the Clinton campaign had decided to push claims about Trump and Russia as a way of distracting the American public from her e-mail scandal and Durham goes into this in detail. I have to say and Durham says, Durham was not able to verify that was true.”
When he asked Clinton about it, she called it crazy. When he spoke to Jake Sullivan, previously on the Clinton campaign and now serves as the United States national security advisor, he also said it was false.“
Here are Nicole and Swan dishing it up on you tube:
What a proud moment this must be for Durham’s family, who have watched him tie his already questionable Republican/Trump Hack legacy to the mizzen of the sinking U.S.S. Trump, watching as he then proceeds to set fire to the whole stinking garbage scow and rush to a lifeboat.
As Swan’s reporting illustrates, John Durham relied at least partially in his report on Russian propaganda produced after the scandal came to light, which Donald Trump thought worthy of declassification.
So what are you gonna believe, folks, Durham or the truth?
For some people this is actually an option.
