Former congressman and Chief Executive Officer of the Trump Media & Technology Group which owns the hugely popular Truth Social platform, Devin Nunes, called for those involved in the Trump-Russia Collusion Hoax to face trial.
Nunes’ remarks came after John Durham released his final report, which concluded FBI had zero verified intel when it launched its Crossfire Hurricane investigation into Trump in 2016.
In a 300-plus page report sent to Congress, Durham wrote:
“Neither U.S. law enforcement nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.”
Durham added that the investigation of Trump’s campaign was based on “raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence.”
The FBI responded to the revelations with a weak statement that admitted fault but claimed” “dozens of corrective actions” have already been implemented due to the investigation.
“The conduct in 2016 and 2017 that Special Counsel Durham examined was the reason that current FBI leadership already implemented dozens of corrective actions, which have now been in place for some time,” the agency said in a statement.
The FBI argues that their errors might have been avoided if the recommended measures had been implemented sooner.
“Had those reforms been in place in 2016, the missteps identified in the report could have been prevented. This report reinforces the importance of ensuring the FBI continues to do its work with the rigor, objectivity, and professionalism the American people deserve and rightly expect,” the agency concluded.
As General Michael Flynn pointed out, “The report itself provides evidence that the FBI had insufficient, predicate intelligence to open an investigation, that the FBI did not properly analyze any information, and that the FBI had a biased predisposition to open an investigation.”
Rep. Devin Nunes outlined the potential next steps for Congress following the Durham report on the Trump-Russia hoax, saying those responsible should be put on trial.
“If I were still there, what I would be advocating for is that… Durham did really clean this up. We did learn a lot of new information that even I didn’t know there was some new information in there and really kind of nailed it down to the very few people that were involved in this”
Nunes called for all financial documents of people involved in the Trump-Russia hoax to be subpoenaed and brought in for depositions.
“If I’m the Republicans now, and you really want to follow through, and you really want to put shine sunlight onto this, you need to subpoena all of their bank records, all of these people, because a lot of them, we don’t know where they’re getting paid now,” Nunes said.
“Also, then you need to bring them in for depositions because the only thing you have now is to expose these people publicly,” he added.
“There’s very few players involved in this. A lot of them have not faced the fire of the Congress – or a public trial – and that I think is what Congress needs to do. They need to put these people on trial.”
