There was no evidence to support the Crossfire Hurricane investigation of former Pres. Donald Trump, Special Counsel John Durham concluded in a copy of his report exclusively obtained by The Federalist, the publication’s CEO Sean Davis reported Monday.

Davis revealed the findings of his review of the Durham report in a series of tweets (emphasis added):

“BREAKING: Special prosecutor John Durham concluded that ‘neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.’”


“MORE from Durham’s 306-page report, which @FDRLST has obtained: ‘FBI records prepared by [Peter] Strzok in February and March 2017 show that at the time of the opening of Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI had no information in its holdings indicating that at any time during the campaign anyone in the Trump had been in contact with any Russian intelligence officials.’”


“According to the 306-page Durham report, the Obama FBI tried and failed to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on [former Trump foreign affairs advisor] George Papadopoulos.”


“Durham concluded the Steele dossier was a complete joke and that the FBI failed to corroborate any of its key claims: ‘Our investigation determined that the Crossfire Hurricane investigators did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations contained in the Steele reporting.’”
