Bill Barr and Donald Trump installed John Durham to investigate the Russia hoax and to find criminal conspiracy in the Clinton and Democratic establishment, a task which John Durham failed at.
May 31, 2022

John Durham was named Special Counsel by Bill Barr (at the request of Donald Trump) to investigate crimes by the Democrats and the Clinton campaign. His only case so far was against DC lawyer, Michael Sussman, and stemmed from alleged lies that he made to the FBI. Well, after just 6 hours of deliberation (a crazy short time, by court standards), the jury found him not guilty.

What a giant waste of time, money and resources. Oh, and a waste of the judicial system resources.

The Washington Post reports that the trial focused on a single charge of lying to the FBI in 2016 while working for the Clinton campaign. The verdict was not a difficult one to come to, two jurors told the Post.

One juror said “Politics were not a factor. We felt really comfortable being able to share what we thought. We had concise notes, and we were able to address the questions together. Personally, I don’t think it should have been prosecuted. She added that the government “could have spent our time more wisely.”

The second juror confirmed that in the jury room "everyone pretty much saw it the same way.”

Durham has been a giant failure since his appointment 3 years ago. He is continuing on his stupid witch hunt, looking for an outcome that fits the false narrative spewed by Trump for 6 years now - that he is the victim of a coordinated witch hunt. Durham has another trial planned for the fall, this time involving "a researcher accused of lying to the FBI about his research into Trump."

FOX was very upset, as you can see in the above clip. They blame the DC jury pool for being too Democrat, assuming that they were mostly Clinton supporters.

Twitter had thoughts:

Time to tell John Durham "You're fired."
