Donald Trump responded to the long-anticipated release of special counsel John Durham’s report into his probe of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation by claiming that the government is trying to interfere with the 2024 election just as it did in 2016, Mediaite reported.
In an ALL CAPS rant on Truth Social Wednesday morning, Trump accused the Department of Justice and the FBI of framing him in 2016 and said they are continuing to try to frame him today through the various investigations taking place in Atlanta, Washington, and New York, which he described as James Comey “AND THE SLEAZEBAGS ALL OVER AGAIN.”
In his post, Trump referred to special counsel Jack Smith’s probe into his handling of classified documents as the “BOXES HOAX.” He referred to Fulton County Georgia DA Fani Willis’ probe into possible 2020 election interference by him and his supporters as “THE ‘PERFECT’ PHONE CALL.”
Trump called the investigators “CHEATING LOWLIFES” and claimed that all of the investigations into him amount to interference in the 2024 presidential election.
Trump closed his rant by declaring that he would win in 2024.
In his report released this week, Special Counsel Durham criticized the FBI for its handling of the Russian collusion investigation, finding that it was “seriously deficient” and caused “severe reputational harm” to the bureau.
Durham concluded that the FBI seized on “seriously flawed information” that was not up to the bureau’s “own principles regarding objectivity and integrity.”
Durham took apart the FBI for relying on the Clinton campaign-funded Steele dossier, saying the FBI opened the investigation into Trump based on a “deeply flawed” dossier. He wrote that the bureau could not corroborate “a single substantive allegation” made in the Steele dossier. He blasted the FBI for proceeding with its investigation despite a “complete lack of information” from members of the intelligence community that would corroborate the hypothesis on which the investigation was based.
