I'm sure Fox and the other con media outlets will be doing corrections daily since they got it wrong. That is what Durham is saying...

Please read for content and with comprehension...


The motion to dismiss comes just days after a filing by Durham that created an uproar and was mischaracterized in some media reports — and by Trump and close allies — as having suggested that the former president had been illegally spied on by allies of the Clinton campaign, even though that was not what the document said.

Durham, the New York Times reported Friday, distanced himself on Thursday from the heated reaction in the pro-Trump media to his latest filing.

“If third parties or members of the media have overstated, understated or otherwise misinterpreted facts contained in the government’s motion, that does not in any way undermine the valid reasons for the government’s inclusion of this information,” Durham wrote in a new court pleading, the Times reported.

Durham also implicitly acknowledged that the White House–linked data lookups in question had occurred during the Obama, and not the Trump, administration
, the Times observed.

The earlier Durham filing said the company of the tech executive with whom Sussmann had worked, Rodney Joffe, had helped maintain servers for the White House and said he and cybersecurity researchers he was working with had mined internet traffic for the “purpose of gathering derogatory information” about Trump.

A spokesman for Joffe said he was an “apolitical internet security expert” who had never worked for a political party and was operating under a contract to identify potential cyberbreaches or threats against the federal government.

During the course of the work, according to the spokesman, the researchers identified what they thought were concerning anomalies related to Russian-made phones “in proximity” to the Trump campaign and the White House and prepared a report of their findings that was subsequently shared with the CIA.

The White House data that was analyzed was from the time that Barack Obama, not Trump, was president, undercutting the idea that Trump was spied on while in office.


National-security expert and former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, in an MSNBC interview, noted that claims in the agenda-driven media and by Trump allies that Durham’s filing last Friday had added weight to a long-standing Trump claim of having been wiretapped had in no way been validated.

“There was no content [in the DNS lookups referenced in the Durham court filings],” Figliuzzi said. “A wiretap is when you’re intercepting content.”

She’s guilty as hell 2Lying.

lock er up
Ha! Hilary lost. I repeat Hillary, she lost . You guys and your obsession with her is mind blowing. Unlike the most recent loser, she does not remain the head of her party. No one tried and over turn her election loss with a coup attempt and insurrection. Lock him up ( a much more likely outcome than her!)
