Trump tells the outlet:
“This is one of history’s biggest political scandals. I had to defend myself against her and those crooked individuals for three years, and you will never be able to entirely restore your reputation. How can I repair my reputation?”
The president is done, and he states that all of the resources devoted to investigating him over nonexistent Russian Collusion could have been better utilized elsewhere, such as preventing us from having a “real danger with Russia.”
He then turns his sights on those he feels let him down when it came to preventing something like this from happening. “And, if we had real leadership rather than people like Mitch McConnell and Bill Barr, they would have taken action,” he adds.
The basic facts: Sussmann is being prosecuted in the Durham case, which RedState has been covering extensively. On Friday, Mook, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, directly connected her with pushing the false Alfa Bank story. This came after Thursday’s testimony during which former FBI General Counsel James Baker said that the bureau looked into the bank tale and found “nothing there.”
George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said that, despite the fact that she’s “Voldemort-like,” Hillary Clinton will almost certainly not face “actual responsibility” in the Durham investigation.
In 2019, Durham was tasked with looking into the origins of the FBI’s initial Trump campaign investigation, known as Crossfire Hurricane. Crossfire Hurricane resulted in the Mueller investigation, which cost taxpayers $32 million for two years’ worth of work.
A lot of digging has occurred, yet no one has been held accountable.
Trump’s key question is: how does he get his reputation back? I ask, too, where do we the public get our money back, as well as two years of trust in our government and media? So many people in “authority” let us down, from corrupt former FBI Director James Comey to conspiring former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to Robert Mueller, a formerly respected figure.
Russia Collusion remains a serious and repugnant blemish on our nation’s reputation, and one can only hope that Durham’s prosecution of an obscure lawyer in the plot leads to the real culprits being brought to justice.
Meanwhile, Trump will never receive an apology from the individuals mentioned above, and his reputation will never be fully restored. He may take pride in knowing that he was right all along—and they were wrong—but it’s doubtful that this would provide him much comfort.
