About our John Durham news
Latest news on John Durham, a special counsel who was appointed by former Attorney General William Barr in 2019 to investigate the origins of the FBI's investigation of links between Russia and former President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. He submitted his final report on 15 May, 2023, which was released by Attorney General Merrick Garland with no redactions.
The report found that the FBI did not have enough factual evidence to investigate allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, and that it relied too heavily on tips provided by Trump's political opponents. It also criticized the FBI for treating the Trump investigation differently from other politically sensitive investigations, such as those involving Hillary Clinton. However, the report did not find any evidence of a deep-state plot against Trump or his campaign.
