In August of 2020 I sent this tweet to the general public after a lengthy discussion with John Durham's lead investigator:

This tweet created major controversy amid those who were deep in the research weeds on the entire Spygate/Russiagate fiasco. Few would believe that in the effort to preserve the institutions at all costs, AG Bill Barr was the Bondo application and Special Prosecutor John Durham was the spray paint.

It was all a coverup operation to hide the rot in the DOJ and beyond.

Essentially, Durham and Bill Aldenberg admitted to me that nothing the Robert Mueller team did in the preceding two years was subject to their review.

Yes, that is correct, Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann were specifically appointed in May 2017 by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to help coverup and hide the IC targeting of Donald Trump in the preceding two years. Emphasize this point, the intelligence community was targeting candidate Donald Trump, because they had the power as a result of the new surveillance state.

Mueller was to hide that IC targeting operation. Mueller had the full support of all Democrat and Republican leadership.

When Mueller was finished with his segment (2017-2019), newly installed AG Bill Barr appointed John Durham as the safety mechanism to continue the coverup operation (2019 through 2021). This became crystal clear during my phone contacts when the special counsel admitted they would not review anything the Mueller team touched.

John Durham would not, likely because he 'could not', touch any of the participants in the Trump targeting operation that were inside the government. His only accountability review was looking at those who were outside government within the Clinton Campaign, Fusion GPS, Perkins Coie, etc.

The majority of the 2015/2016 operation against Trump was conducted by inside government actors who were assisting the Clinton campaign effort. With John Durham admitting he would not look at those govt participants, essentially the Durham investigation was a farce, a joke, a total snow job. Hence... my tweet.

Today, FOIAFan is noting the budget request from the office of John Durham provides receipts for exactly what I was saying HERE - {Go Deep}. The budget memo was recently released as part of a demanded FOIA request:

Notice how John Durham is saying as soon as he gets the Danchenko issue completed, it's all over; "the office shutdown will be completed."

October 2022 - A jury found Igor Danchenko not guilty on four counts of lying to the FBI, on four occasions.
(1) Danchenko told FBI agents he received a phone call in late July 2016 Sergei Millian. However, Danchenko knew he had never received a call from Millian.
(2) Danchenko gave a false statement to FBI agents that he "was under the impression" that the late July 2016 call was from Millian.
(3) Danchenko falsely stated to FBI agents that he believed he spoke to Millian on the phone on more than one occasion, and
(4) Danchenko lied that he "believed he has spoken to [Millian] on the telephone," when Danchenko well knew he had never spoken to Millian.
The FBI didn't care about the details of the lies that were told to them; the lies served a purpose. The FBI purpose was to use the Steele Dossier as the foundation for a fraudulent all-encompassing search warrant against the Trump campaign and presidency, using Carter Page. That construct was always the motive of the DOJ/FBI use of Danchenko, Chris Steele and the infamous dossier that gave the DOJ the patina they needed for the FISA application.

The trial itself showed how corrupt the FBI and DOJ were in this scheme by:
A) offering Chris Steele $1 million for proof of the dossier content.
B) By making Danchenko a confidential human source for two years to shield him, "sources and methods", from investigative inquiry.
C) By paying Danchenko $200,000 for his time as a useful tool and confidential human source.
This is where we must stop pretending. The Durham premise of a "duped FBI" is laughable on its face. No one in the FBI or DOJ-NSD was "duped" by false information from Igor Danchenko.

The lies, as they were with Clinton lawyer Michael Sussman, were well known to be false, yet materially beneficial to the unspoken intention of the DOJ/FBI, which was to target Donald Trump. The corrupt intent of the DOJ and FBI is the basic rot John Durham was appointed to cover over.

January 2017 Danchenko interviewed by FBI. Tells FBI dossier is junk.

March 2017 FBI hires Danchenko paying him $200,000, just before renewing the FISA they now know is based on junk.

May 2017 Robert Mueller appointed to cover up all of the DOJ/FBI corruption that existed in the Trump targeting.

June 2017 Mueller interviews Danchenko, then renews the FISA.

February 2019 Bill Barr enters as Attorney General.

April 2019 Robert Mueller completes investigation.

May 2019 Bill Barr appoints Durham just to look into things. Immediately, he then begs Trump not to declassify any documents. Trump writes executive order giving Bill Barr ability to review and declassify documents.

October 2020 Bill Barr officially (and quietly), makes John Durham a special counsel. We don't find out until December (after the Nov election). Which is why in.... October 2020, FBI drops Igor Danchenko as paid informant.Put it all together and you see the continuum:
(1) Donald Trump was being targeted by a corrupt DOJ and FBI.
(2) Robert Mueller was installed in May 2017 to cover up the targeting.
(3) When Mueller is nearing his completion, Bill Barr steps in to mitigate institutional damage from 1 and 2.
(4) Barr maintains damage control and installs Durham.
(5) Durham takes over the coverup operation from October 2020 (Danchenko safe to exit with Durham appointment official).
Main Justice kept a bag over Danchenko until they needed a scapegoat, created by Durham, to sell a narrative that Main Justice was duped. John Durham charged Danchenko (working outside govt) with lying to the FBI while simultaneously avoiding drawing attention to the FBI/DOJ officials (inside govt) who knew Danchenko was lying and were willfully blind to it in order to continue attacking and investigating President Donald Trump.

James Comey, Robert Mueller, Bill Barr, John Durham, the Mar-a-Lago raid, the appointment of Jack Smith... it's all one long continuum of the same targeting and coverup operation.

Bill Barr was the Bondo application and John Durham was the spray paint.

The entire system is corrupt.

Trump is correct....
