Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed John D. O’Connor.
The main headline of the long-anticipated Durham Report of Special Counsel John Durham tells us what most of us already knew: the Russian Collusion investigation was a hoax.
But the truly revealing and troubling part of the 306 page report is its detailed description of sickening partisanship, dishonest if not provably criminal. When CIA Director John Brennan gained credible intelligence that the Clinton Campaign of 2016 was concocting a false story that the Trump Campaign was colluding with Russia-all to divert attention from its own corruption of the DNC against rival Bernie Sanders-he reported that intelligence to the Obama Oval Office in a meeting with President Obama, advisor Susan Rice, and FBI Director James Comey. So did these supposedly honest officials take steps to investigate the Clinton Campaign? No. Brennan and Comey immediately formed a “Fusion Team”, a high level group controlled by senior leadership, and taking jurisdiction over all related matters. Isn’t this a good thing-investigating Clinton’s dishonest interference? It would have been, but they were not investigating that. They were investigating the very thing that Clinton so ardently wanted-an investigation of Russian electoral interference, the exact narrative Clinton was pushing against Donald Trump. So dishonest leadership completely flipped the script to help on candidate get elected. In so doing, and knowing that Clinton’s Steele Dossier was largely sourced by overt and covert Russian agents and oligarchs, the FBI and Special Counsel aided and abetted the very activity they should be investigating, foreign assisted electoral interference.
