Durham & Schiff Have Intense Back & Forth During Hearing
John Durham has been testifying on Capitol Hill this afternoon and the career prosecutor has already shown why Democrats are trying to run the clock out on his investigation.
Durham’s opening statement went right to the heart of the matter and highlighted the massive problems with the Russia-collusion narrative that the Left attempted to push for four years. Unsurprisingly, Durham quickly found himself in a verbal sparring match with Democrats who had no real response when presented with the facts.
But one exchange stands out as a particularly crushing blow. During Rep. Adam Schiff’s questioning, the California congressman tried to bring up the infamous Trump Tower meeting, which Schiff himself had previously called a massive cover-up.
John Durham makes a fool of Adam Schiff

Durham, however, was having none of it. In a single sentence, the prosecutor reminded Schiff of the time that he accepted a phone call from two Russian comedians who alleged they had “dirt” on then-president Donald Trump. Photo of “dirt”, that is.
The Democrats’ own collusion narrative had backfired on them, right there in the middle of a congressional hearing.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Rep. Schiff has gotten himself into trouble when publicly trying to defend the Russia hoax. He infamously claimed to have seen evidence of then-candidate Trump colluding with the Russians, only for that statement to be debunked within hours.
But don’t bother telling the Democrats that. After four years of wild allegations, they’ve made up their minds and nothing is going to change them.
Today’s hearing is just one more reminder that too many Democrats have done little to actually hold the people involved accountable for their part in the whole fiasco. Tomorrow’s vote on censuring Schiff for his role in pushing the narrative serves as a final insult to injury.
It’s all too typical of the party that went all out in search of impeachment at any cost. It’s a shame because it was really John Durham’s job to make sure that, this time, the truth actually won out.
