Russia redux: Trump hails Durham report, media call it a nothing-burger

Trump is by far the leading candidate for the Republican nomination. Any time he’s asked about Russia in a debate or other forum – or even if he’s not asked – he’ll say the investigation was utterly discredited by John Durham. For him and his supporters, that’s case closed.


  1. There is a tactic in the military called suppressive fire.

    In military science, suppressive fire is "fire that degrades the performance of an enemy force below the level needed to fulfill its mission". When used to protect exposed friendly troops advancing on the battlefield, it is commonly called covering fire. Suppression is usually only effective for the duration of the fire.[1] It is one of three types of fire support, which is defined by NATO as "the application of fire, coordinated with the maneuver of forces, to destroy, neutralise or suppress the enemy".

    If all the Durham report does is ensure we don't have to endure another Steele report touted all over, then mission accomplished.

  2. Rather lame rationalization All your so called benefits had already been done through previous investigations

  3. Quoting from the quote above from the Wikipedia article on the subject of suppresdion fire: "Suppression is usually only effective for the duration of the fire."

    The pressure has to continue. The Durrham report took the baton from the Inspector General's findings. And Donald Trump will now keep the ball rolling up till the next Presidential election, and beyond.

  4. Nope! FBI acknowledged and made changes
    No one needs Trump to keep any ball running or to continue with his lies

  5. I reslectfully disagree. FBI has a long history of abusing its power. I hope you're right, though, that the latest changes nip all the shenanigans in the bud.
