FBI leadership is largely ignoring the Durham report.
The 306-page report concluded a four-year investigation which found that the Obama-era FBI launched its Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the Trump campaign despite having zero evidence of Russian collusion, and that top government officials including then-President Obama himself knew that the entire “Russian collusion” narrative was a bogus narrative spawned by the Clinton campaign.
While speaking to the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence, FBI assistant director of counterintelligence Jill Murphy admitted that she hasn’t bothered to read the report, and then later told Rep. Dan Bishop that she hadn’t even been briefed on the Durham report either.
“Why is that not a matter of such import that you would want urgently to understand what the special counsel concluded about the work of the counterintelligence division? In such a grave case?” Bishop asked.
“If you’d like a brief on the Durham report from the counterintelligence division, I’m happy to take that back,” Murphy said.
“Wow, that sounds almost contemptuous,” Bishop replied, adding “I’m just without words, that the FBI is unconcerned … Do you intend to read it?”
