Thanks to John Durham’s final report, we have a better picture of how the FBI tried to meddle in the 2016 Election. One of the worst things the agency did was investigate Donald Trump’s campaign for Russia collusion, even though it knew the “evidence” was not real.
But that is just the beginning of the revelations.
You probably remember that Hillary Clinton, who was once Obama’s secretary of state, was under investigations by the FBI. Clinton broke the law by using a private email server to conduct State Department businesses. But that was just one of several investigations the FBI had against her, all of which were dropped by James Comey. Now, Republicans want answers.
From Trending Politics:
In an interview with Fox News, U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) hinted that Republicans may re-open probes into Hillary Clinton that were dropped by the FBI in 2016…
“Because you have a situation here where they had some basis of information there to start those inquiries. And the report clearly shows, you have I believe it was Peter Strzok and other people high up in the FBI who came in, and in one meeting, shut it all down,” Donalds said.
Rep. Byron Donalds calls for investigations to be reopened into Hillary & the Clinton Foundation now that the Durham report revealed they were previously shut down by the deep state 👀

Republican Rep. Byron Donalds agreed with Rep. Matt Gaetz that the House should reopen investigations into Hillary Clinton. The FBI was investigating Clinton’s infamous “Foundation” which many believe she used to conduct a “pay-for-play” scheme.
Some have suggested that Clinton used that illegal private email server to hide what she was doing from the federal government. The FBI had several investigations open against her and her allies. But they were all dropped around the 2016 Election, in what Republicans believe was an attempt to protect Clinton’s election chances.
Donalds said that the revelations from Durham’s report suggest the agency was politically biased. Many Americans agree with that. All of its investigations are tainted now. If they went after Trump wrongly, over politics, why wouldn’t they have protected Clinton–over politics?
What would Republicans discover, if they reopened these cases? House Republicans might do it themselves, subpoenaing the FBI for records. Or they stir up public pressure, so the FBI reopens these cases again.
But the statute of limitations is running out for old Hillary. If they want this done, they need to move fast.
- House Republicans want to reopen investigations against Hillary Clinton.
- The FBI was investigating Clinton and her Foundation in 2016.
- John Durham’s report exposed the FBI’s politically-motivated activity against Trump.
