Ben Shapiro Dissects Durham’s Report: ‘Absolute Madness,’ DOJ Needs To ‘Put Some Heads On Pikes’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Daily Wire editor emeritus Ben Shapiro on Tuesday said that the Durham report released the day prior detailed "one of the most shocking scandals in the history of American law enforcement."

    The Department of Justice released a 306-page report on former special counsel John Durham's investigations into the origins of the Russian collusion hoax on Monday. Durham's report detailed "sobering" misconduct and corruption at the Department of Justice that involved Democratic officials and politicians.

    "For years, Donald Trump had suggested that the FBI was out to get him, that they had colluded with the Clinton campaign, they'd colluded with the Obama administration, that the deep state had basically subverted his presidency. He said that it was the greatest scandal in American history, and it appears he was right," Shapiro said at the top of his show.

    Crossfire Hurricane began "during the [2016] presidential election season based on raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence," Durham wrote. FBI officials, some with stated bias against Trump, used Clinton campaign-funded disinformation in the form of the Steele dossier and other falsified evidence to justify a probe into Trump that lasted years into his presidency.

    "It is absolutely shocking. It is damning. It is apparent that everyone in the FBI knew that this investigation was bull crap right up front," Shapiro said. "It was very clear the Clinton campaign was using the FBI to launder into public view and into law enforcement a bunch of bad allegations. It was clear that upper echelons of the Obama administration knew all of this was happening."

    "The Obama administration and the FBI were fully aware of the Clinton campaign plan to plant all this information, and they went ahead with it anyway," Shapiro said, referring to a briefing that then-CIA Director John Brennan gave to then-President Obama, then-FBI Director James Comey, and other top officials in 2016. The focus of Brennan's briefing was to alert top Obama administration officials that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then a candidate for president, had allegedly approved a campaign effort to link Trump to Russia to damage his candidacy.

    "Did the Obama administration step in and [tell the FBI,] 'Hey, hold up, got to abide by the law here. The FBI and DOJ cannot launch investigations into the rival of our former secretary of state, especially now that we know that she's attempting to get us to launch an investigation into her rival?'" Shapiro asked rhetorically. "Nope, they just went ahead with it. They just went ahead. This is insane."

And NOW, this Poll from 5 1/2 years ago on Beaufort County NOW!

Considering that ancillary investigations orbiting the Mueller investigation into possible Russia collusion by the Trump campaign (still unfounded), now discovering founded improprieties and probable corruption by many Democrats their sworn bureaucrats, and now stretching back over 9 years: Should a second Independent Prosecutor be appointed to fully discover, indict and convict those corrupt?
  No, it is a diversion from convicting President Trump.
  Yes, America needs to return to its lost status as a Nation of Laws, dictated by the Rule of Law.
  I have not yet received proper direction from late night talk show hosts.

    Shapiro emphasized the FBI's central role in what the Durham report characterized as a failure of the bureau to adhere to its "guiding principles" of "Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity." The central problem at the bureau, according to Durham, is that the officials involved lacked integrity, not training, oversight, or processes.

    Shapiro said the FBI's conduct was "astonishing and frightening."

    "It is absolute madness to suggest that you should be able to open an investigation on this basis," Shapiro said. "How exactly would that even work? And the answer is, of course, well, if you have agents and the agents have power, they can do whatever the hell they want."


    The Daily Wire host did take issue with some of Durham's report. Durham did not recommend any further criminal action be taken against those involved in the scheme to undermine Trump's campaign and presidency. Shapiro said that not acting against those accountable only encouraged something similar to happen again.

    "The fact is the FBI and the DOJ would be a lot better off right now if they actually went and prosecuted some of these people, put some heads on spikes, and showed people that they were never going to let the FBI do this again," Shapiro said.

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.
