Durham comes out with statement to basically say Faux News got the Hillary spying nonsense wrong. In his words they overstated the facts, go figure. Wonder if they'll put out a retraction 🤣

The special counsel implicitly acknowledged that White House internet data he discussed, which conservative outlets have portrayed as proof of spying on the Trump White House, came from the Obama era.

“If third parties or members of the media have overstated, understated or otherwise misinterpreted facts contained in the government’s motion, that does not in any way undermine the valid reasons for the government’s inclusion of this information,” he wrote.

Former President Donald J. Trump has seized on the inaccurate reporting to declare that there is now “indisputable evidence” of a Clinton campaign conspiracy against him — and to suggest that there ought to be executions. Mr. Trump, Fox News hosts and others have also criticized mainstream journalists for not covering the purported revelation.

Will it matter to that crowd? I have my doubts.

Don't you see? Obama's Deep State Lizardmen must have gotten to him. It's the only explanation. They also hushed up Hunter's Laptop!

The damage has been done. People will think HRC was corrupt. Doesn't matter if it was true, just like before. You only need to plant the seed, then the natural ignorance found in many people will let it take root....

The reality is Hillary was already flawed and should also step aside for new blood in the party but you are right.

Maybe as a candidate to some people she was "flawed"..............but her political career is over only because people's minds are very narrow.........................History has somewhat rarely seen such an obviously qualified candidate as HRC, and certainly many less qualified

She keeps telling those who assume, she's not running in 2024. She's just out helping the base for the 2022 elections. But people will try to make it a deal I'm sure.

I still think this is a huge whataboutism. They think it makes trump and his Russian friends innocent.
