With every leak and politically-motivated witch hunt, Americans are losing faith in the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies. 

Many Americans rightfully believe that the FBI is no longer focused on doing their job but rather in putting Donald Trump and his supporters in jail.

But Merrick Garland nearly fainted after Special Counsel John Durham made one alarming claim.

Americans are losing trust in the politically-motivated Department of Justice

Ever since former President Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, many conservatives have believed that the FBI has been targeting him and his supporters.

After some diligent investigative efforts by Special Counsel John Durham, it appears that belief is true. 

On Wednesday, Special Counsel John Durham publicly testified before Congress for the first time since the release of his ground-breaking report, indicating that the “Russian collusion” hoax was nothing more than a complete fabrication. 

During the hearing on Wednesday, Durham claimed that “the FBI was too willing to accept and use politically funded and uncorroborated opposition research, such as the Steele dossier.” 

“The FBI relied on the dossier and FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) applications, knowing there was likely material originating from a political campaign or political opponent,” he added.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) then asked Durham, “what happened when you took that referral memo and shared it with one of those agents, specifically Supervisory Special Agent Number 1?”

“We interviewed the first supervisor of the Crossfire investigation, the operational person,” Durham responded. “We showed him the intelligence information and he indicated he had never seen it before.”

He added that the agent in question, Joe Pientka, “immediately became emotional, got up and left the room with his lawyer, spent some time in the hallway, and came back.”

This testimony obviously did not sit well with radical Democrats in Congress, including Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), who used his time to personally attack Durham. 

“You have a good reputation,” Cohen said to Durham, preempting a threat. “You had a good reputation, that’s why the two Democrats supported you. But the longer you hold onto Mr. Barr and this report that Mr. Barr gave you as special counsel, your reputation will be damaged, as everybody’s reputation who gets involved with Donald Trump is damaged.”

“My concern about my reputation is with the people whom I respect and my family and my Lord,” Durham shot back. “And I’m perfectly comfortable with my reputation with them.”

Democrats are enraged that their fraudulent scheme is now exposed to the public

For years, Democrats peddled this false narrative that Trump stole the 2016 election by “colluding” with Russia.

These lies not only split America even further apart, but also threatened the very foundations of the republic.

Thanks to lies created by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and sheepishly repeated by Democrats and their media allies, America may never fully recover.
