Memo - The illegitimacy of the coming “Durham report”

Protect Democracy has put together the following memo to help Americans contextualize the so-called “Durham investigation” or “Durham probe” being conducted by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham. The probe reviews the actions of the FBI and intelligence community (IC) personnel who investigated the Trump campaign’s ties to Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The following memo explains two key points:

  1. There is no basis for suggesting that the 2016 Russia investigation was improperly pursued, much less that it was a crime.
  2. The Durham investigation is tainted by political interference from President Trump and improper guilt-presuming comments by Trump and AG Barr.
