Senator Braun’s Statement on Report from Special Counsel John Durham

May 16, 2023

WASHINGTON – Senator Mike Braun released the following statement on the release of Special Counsel John Durham’s report.

“Special Counsel Durham’s report is thorough and damning: the Russia collusion investigation was a hoax from the get-go, was based on uncorroborated intel that was never corroborated, and should never have been opened. Media outlets and politicians that spread these baseless lies should issue retractions and apologies, and the politicizing of our justice system has to end.” – Senator Mike Braun

    Wait a minute.

    The report is thorough.
    It is NOT DAMNING. In fact, Durham made NO suggested changes to the way the FBI operates. NO CHANGES did Durham recommend. Zero.

    “John H. Durham, the Trump-era special counsel who for four years has pursued a politically fraught investigation into the Russia inquiry, accused the F.B.I. of having “discounted or willfully ignored material information.”

    “Mr. Durham’s 306-page report revealed little substantial new information about the inquiry, and it failed to produce the kinds of blockbuster revelations accusing the bureau of politically motivated misconduct that former President Donald J. Trump and his allies suggested Mr. Durham would uncover.

    Instead, the report — released without substantive comment or any redactions by Attorney General Merrick B. Garland — largely recounted previously exposed flaws in the inquiry.”
