Trump and Barr began an investigation that lasted longer and cost US taxpayers more than Muller’s probe but was a Nothing Burger.
The twice impeached, indicted sexual predator promised Durham’s work would reveal “the crime of the century.” As usual, he is a loudmouth liar and loser bullshit artist.
The pathetic probe culminated in a 48-month investigation since May 2019, that ran longer than special counsel Robert Mueller’s original 22-month investigation. Durham charged three people, one of whom pleaded guilty and two won acquittals at trial.
Durham spent nearly $6.6 million as special counsel from October 2019 through September 2022, the most recent figures available, but no mention of the trip Barr and Durham took to meet with Italian investigators.
