In a heated exchange in Congress, Representative Matt Gaetz challenged Special Counsel John Durham on the shortcomings of his report. It is no secret that Durham’s track record includes losing two cases and securing only one guilty plea, from the recently reinstated Kevin Clinesmith. Despite these facts, Durham still paraded around like his investigative team had been champions, shielding the country in their crusade to operate under the law.
WATCH: In a HEATED exchange Matt Gaetz questions John Durham over the shortcomings of his report, suggesting that it contained ‘SIGNIFICANT ommisions’ and failed to lead to charges against key individuals.
Do you consider the Durham Report a failure? https://t.co/ZmUUZDgEmG

Gaetz continued to question Durham and pointed out that his report failed to charge key figures like former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and showed no results against alleged lying Democrats or Russians. He also slammed Durham for not investigating Joseph Mifsud or the Mueller probe, despite his jurisdiction extending to it.
Gaetz is right about this.

Seems like Durham wants to still be invited to Christmas parties and not become the pariah Democrats in law enforcement would make him. He’s just like Bill Barr defending his social network. It’s really sad. We need law in our law enforcement, not politics.

None of this helps me buy property or even groceries. The entire government hates us.

Well, Gaetz isn’t wrong. People put so much credibility, trust and wanted accountability. Durham kind of fumbled the ball. Just my thoughts.

"they're the team that gets paid to show up and lose" 🤣😂🤣😂

To illustrate his point, Gaetz compared Durham’s role to the Washington Generals, who showed up only to lose to the Harlem Globetrotters every night. Much like the Generals, Gaetz said that Durham was there to lose and it was the omissions in his report that mattered, not what it contained.
“You are one of the barriers to the true accountability that we need,” Gaetz declared, stating that Durham had let the country down by protecting the criminals. Durham tried to retaliate by asking Gaetz if he had ever investigated a crime, which only made him look more foolish.
Gaetz concluded their exchange by questioning Durham over whether he had investigated McCabe and the Mueller team for wiping their phones. He accused Durham of shielding the people involved and acting against the country’s interests. Durham defended his actions, stating that he could only act within the bounds of the Constitution and the rule of law.
It is clear that Durham failed to fulfill his duties and hold corrupt individuals accountable. It’s time for Americans to demand the truth and show Durham that he is not untouchable. The country deserves better, and it’s time to demand accountability.
