The U.S. Department of Justice will soon decide whether to close down the investigation into the origins of Russiagate, a lie fabricated by Barack Obama’s FBI, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, and the Democratic National Committee among other bad actors seeking to ruin Donald Trump. U.S. Attorney John Durham, named special counsel by former Attorney General William Barr in October 2020 after more than 18 months of dawdling, has uncovered a damning trail of evidence to show “collusion” existed not between Trump and the Kremlin but between Democratic Party interests, including the national news media, in an attempt to rig the 2016 presidential election.

It’s unclear whether Durham will issue a final report on the matter; what is clear, however, is Durham’s effort has been an abysmal failure in terms of holding anyone criminally responsible for the biggest political fraud in modern history.
Rather than targeting those at the top of the scheme, including former FBI Director James Comey and U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to name a few, Durham has pursued minor offenses against low-level operatives resulting so far in one guilty plea and one acquittal.
If Joe Biden’s Justice Department doesn’t extend the inquiry—and there is no reason at this point to believe it will—the Durham investigation will go down as yet another massive failure in the face of provable and destructive Democratic Party corruption at the highest levels. Those same escape artists instead are now emboldened, brazenly using the Justice Department to prosecute Trump voters and advisors to build a long-desired criminal case against the former president for his alleged role in the “attack” on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Americans are witnessing something unprecedented: a congressional committee handpicked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi working seamlessly with a highly partisan Justice Department to criminalize political dissent. Contrary to the solemn insistence of known liars like Schiff and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), none of it has anything to do with the four-hour disturbance on Capitol Hill more than 18 months ago but everything to do with dragging America into banana republic-style territory complete with political prisoners, kangaroo courts, secret police, forced confessions, and nonstop propaganda under the guise of “news.”

As this Democratic Party crusade has unfolded over the past year and a half, most Republican officials have been silent as the regime flagrantly flouts the Constitution and the boundaries of decency and tradition. Some leaders, most notably Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), have embraced the description of January 6 as an “insurrection” and blame Trump for what happened that day.

While congressional Republicans bury their heads in the Democrats’ latest pit of political quicksand, their voters are not as gullible. According to a report this week by Axios, a GOP-led House is planning to retaliate for the conduct of the January 6 selection committee by launching an investigation into the committee itself—not necessarily because top Republicans have the stomach for the fight but because they are getting an earful from their constituents. “The base is out for blood on subpoenas,” tied to investigations of January 6, Hunter Biden, the coronavirus response, and the Afghanistan withdrawal, a House Republican aide told Axios.

The only question, the aide said, is “how far [House Minority Leader Kevin] McCarthy wants to go” should he become speaker of the House in 2023.

That remains an open, and unsettling, question. McCarthy has been loath to punish Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) for accepting Pelosi’s appointment to the committee. Only after significant blowback did McCarthy replace Cheney as his hand-picked conference chairman in May 2021; she remains on the House Armed Services Committee. A few days after the Capitol protest, McCarthy urged Trump to “accept his share of the responsibility” and floated the idea of censuring the president as an alternative to impeachment.


As dozens of Capitol protesters have languished for months, some for more than a year, in a political prison in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol building where he works, McCarthy has said nothing in their defense. When confronted recently by Fox Business News host Maria Bartiromo about the plight of the political prisoners, McCarthy said “they shouldn’t be held for this long” then quickly pivoted to concerns over inflation and the open border.
