On Monday, a groundbreaking report by Special Counsel John Durham sent shockwaves through the nation as it unveiled a startling revelation—the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI had gravely neglected their duty to adhere strictly to the law during their investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
In a statement exclusively disclosed to Fox News Digital, the FBI acknowledged the severity of the findings and disclosed that they have already taken swift and extensive action to rectify the missteps uncovered by the Durham inquiry. This decisive response showcases the present leadership’s commitment to accountability and the urgent need for reform.
Had the recommended changes been implemented in 2016, the disconcerting blunders detailed in the report could have been effectively averted. The FBI acknowledges the imperative to proceed with unwavering rigor, objectivity, and professionalism, firmly upholding the trust and expectations of the American people.
Fox News received the highly anticipated report on Monday afternoon, marking the culmination of Durham’s exhaustive multi-year investigation into the origins of the FBI’s initial inquiry, codenamed “Crossfire Hurricane.” The primary objective of this probe was to ascertain whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election—an investigation that has captivated the nation for years.
Without delay, the Justice Department made the comprehensive report, spanning over 300 pages, available to the public. Within its pages, the report unveils a damning indictment of the Department and the FBI, concluding that they egregiously failed in their mission to uphold the law with utmost fidelity throughout the events and activities extensively detailed within.
Durham’s meticulous review revealed a disturbing lack of analytical rigor exhibited by senior FBI personnel regarding the information they received, particularly from politically affiliated individuals and entities. This failure in scrutiny directly contributed to the initiation and perpetuation of Crossfire Hurricane and eventually necessitated the appointment of Special Counsel Mueller to conduct a further investigation.
Significantly, the report highlights the overreliance on investigative leads provided or financially supported, either directly or indirectly, by Trump’s political opponents. Disturbingly, the Department failed to adequately scrutinize or question the motivations behind these materials, despite crucial intelligence that contradicted them reaching the FBI Director and others during the same period.
The release of the report serves as a stark reminder of the critical imperative to ensure the FBI conducts its work with utmost integrity and impartiality, meeting the expectations and rightful demands of the American people.
