Prosecutor John Durham has finally concluded his report and the FBI’s probe into alleged Trump ties to Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign season. And the findings are HUGE — despite what some in the mainstream media may say. In this clip, Glenn explains exactly what the Durham Report says, what it means for the FBI, and why Glenn wouldn’t be happy until ‘people GO TO JAIL.’

GLENN: Let's go to Jake tapper. Because I think this one is the only example of an honest reporter, from yesterday on the Durham report. Here's what he said on CNN.
VOICE: Regardless, the report is now here, it has dropped. And it may have not produced everything that the Republicans have voted for.
It is regardless, devastating to the FBI. And to a free, it does exonerate Trump.
GLENN: Wait. What? So you know, Jake tapper was one of the first ones to really jump on the bandwagon and say, is this true.
He was involved in a Russia scandal. So for him to reverse himself, that's a big deal.
For him to be on CNN and reverse himself, that's a big deal.
Maybe we're starting to see a little bit, a little bit, of actual journalism come out from Jake tapper.
Now, here's what we found out. This is -- is this quite amazing. What we found out yesterday was the FBI had zero -- zero Intel or faith in any of this.
So they opened an investigation on something, they had no faith on. They had no Intel. And more importantly, what we found out, is that they had been briefed on the fact, that Hillary and her campaign, was going to discredit Trump by claiming Russian collusion.
Joe Biden was made aware of Clinton campaign plans. I was told, in a meeting, August 3rd, 2016. August 3rd, 2016. By then, CIA director, John Brennan in the Oval, with Barack Obama, Biden, and James Comey, the FBI director and other senior administration officials. They were discussing Russia's efforts to interfere in the election. And according to Brennan's handwritten note and his recollections from the meeting. He briefed on relevant intelligence, known to date on election interference. Including -- this is in a quote. The Clinton plan intelligence.
Now, what was that? Durham writes, specifically, Director Brennan's declassified handwritten notes reflect that he briefed the meeting's participants, regarding the alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on the 26th of July, of a proposal from one of her campaign advisers, to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services. End quote.
Now, how can any American say, this is not a big deal? Not only did all of this -- and we knew it came from the Clinton campaign. Remember the early stories was, this came from a G.O.P. operative.
Remember that? That was the early thing. This came from a G.O.P. operative. They were doing -- they were doing research. No. No.
The president, the FBI, the CIA. Everyone knew that it was decided on July 26th, and then briefed in the Oval in August. That Hillary Clinton had something called the Clinton plan intelligence he has
Where she would release things, to try to get the spotlight off of her email scandal. Durham noted, that even though Comey was in attendance at this meeting, it did not spark any FBI action.
So Comey knew from the beginning, so every time you saw Comey on television, saying, well, we don't know. And there's some evidence that we really have to look into.
He had been briefed, in August. And took no action on Hillary Clinton. Then when the Durham report came out. Not the Durham report.
The Christopher Steele file. When that came out, they all knew that that was the Clinton plan intelligence. The Durham report goes on to say, none of them had any faith in it, at all. In fact, while filing for the FISA court filings, to be able to spy on Trump, the Durham report says, the agents didn't then or in hindsight have any belief that any of these things were true. Okay. So let's just start adding up the crimes here. You have Intel, that one campaign is going to release false information to tie them to the Russians.
Your FBI knows it. Your CIA director is briefing the president. The vice president, Joe Biden. About the Clinton planned intelligence.
And they do nothing. But then when they are delivered something that they know comes from the Clinton campaign, they turn on the machine.
They then start -- the FBI then starts leaking this information, to the press. Which they have zero confidence in.
Durham noted, that during Comey's attendance at this meeting. It didn't spark any FBI action. He further highlighted August 22nd email, that an FBI cyber analyst sent to the bureau employees and senior intelligence officials, informing them of the details of the Clinton plan.
They failed to remember any follow-up actions, the bureau might have taken after the second briefing on it.
Then the FBI, when they got the Steele dossier, remember, the one that no one in the administration believed. Anything in it.
The one that they knew came from Clinton. The one they had been told months before, was coming, in the Clinton campaign. What was it? The Clinton planned intelligence.
When they got it, they went to Christopher Steele. He's the author of the dossier.
And offered a million dollars. We'll pay you and your primary sources money, if anyone was able to prove this.
So now, when Hillary Clinton's operatives couldn't get anything really solid, they pass it to the FBI, the FBI looks at this, and goes, this is garbage. Yeah, I know.
But it could be true. All right. Offer him a million dollars, if he could come up with something.
Okay. Anybody have a problem with that?
Then they went, one of the FBI agents, Brian Auten, traveled to Rome, and met with Steele on October 2016.
And he made the offer, knowing that it relied primarily on one person or subsource.
The bureau paid that subsource.
That subsource was Igor Danchenko. They paid him almost a quarter of a million dollars, even after he was unable to provide any evidence for a single claim.
Your tax dollars paid him. Now, this will get worse.
More shockingly, according to the Durham report, the FBI had significant evidence that Danchenko, himself, was Russian intelligence.
It had closed a counterintelligence investigation into him, on -- in 2011.
Because agents mistakenly believed he had left the country.
The FBI investigated Danchenko as a possible Russian spy from 2009 to '11, after a colleague at the Brooking Institute, the left-leaning think tank where he worked, told the FBI that Danchenko raised the prospect of paying him for classified information, if the colleague joined the Obama administration.
A second Brookings employee also told the FBI, he suspected Danchenko of being connected to Russian intelligence.
It became a full-fledged investigation, when the FBI realized that Danchenko was a known associate of two other spies and had contacts with known Russian intelligence offices. And had said, he wanted to join the Russian diplomatic service. He also told another person, he worked on special matters for the Russian army. And that his Russian passport listed him as connected to the Russian military intelligence service. They paid him, 250,000 to prove that Trump was colluding with people like him.
He couldn't come up with that evidence. Let me take you to Jonathan Turley. Jonathan Turley said, the APA. The AP tried to dismiss this as not the crime of a century. That Donald Trump termed it.
But whether or not anyone will ever be held accountable, is hard to get around, that indeed nothing like this has ever been done before.
Or that it was so damaging and divisive to our nation. What's criminal is that it appears people might get away with it. That doesn't mean it wasn't the crime of the century. It just means, people are not being held to account.
There is so much wrongdoing involved in all of this, but let's point out one big lie, that we always knew was a lie, which the report now confirms.
Do you remember when Adam Schiff, then the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, claimed he had seen evidence, that he couldn't share with us, demonstrating the Russian collusion.
Now that the report verifies, there never was anything, what was that evidence, Adam?
Given Durham's findings that there was no basis for action, taken by the FBI. And launching the investigation. It would be a good time for former House intelligence chair, Adam Schiff to reveal the evidence that showed the Russian collusion.
There is no evidence. So here's what you have, America.
You have a former president, that knew someone was going to attack the Republican candidate, and make up a story about Russian intelligence so the press would not talk to Hillary Clinton about her emails.
The president knew about it. The vice president knew about it. The CIA knew about it. And the FBI knew about it. But they took no action at all.
Now, if that isn't throwing an election, I don't know what is. If that's not making sure, your person wins.
Because you immediately follow it up, with being delivered that -- that you know is false.
Being delivered, and then start leaking everything to the press, from official sources.
I don't know.
I'm not going to be happy, until people go to jail.
Now, the FBI did come out. And they said in their statement, the conduct in the 2016, and 2017 special counsel examined was the reason that the current FBI leadership already implemented dozens of corrective actions, which now have been in place for some time. So they fixed it.
Nothing to see here. No one went to jail. No one was fired. No one was held accountable. But trust us, they say, we fixed it.
Boy, I'm so close to using a word that I know I can't use. And follow it with you, to the FBI.
There is a serious problem. So how do we fix it?
Because they ain't going to fix it. I'll tell you in 60 seconds.

Okay. There is so much more to report on what happened yesterday. But I want to give you a little ray of hope here.
Got a Twitter message from somebody who follows me. Marcus. I have personally moved on from Trump. But I can clearly understand why President Trump can't move forward.
You want to pay President Trump back for everything that he did, then you should be on the bandwagon.
Because the best thing we can do, is make sure the people who did that to him, and would do that to you, or anybody else, that they disagree with, goes to jail!
I can't move on. Dear God, who will hold the Democrats (accountable?
Well, I'm not sure it's the Republicans. But we are going to try on Thursday night. A new angle entirely.
I had a team of researchers here on Blaze media do a little digging to uncover as many Hunter Biden crimes as they could find. Mind you, I told our researchers to only provide us with the list of crimes, which they have concrete evidence.
Crimes that are so obvious, so well-documented, that a half wit prosecutor, could secure a conviction.
Nothing even close to the line, just wow, did he do that!
So let me give you a couple of the crimes, we've uncovered. In Arizona, 2016. Hunter crashed his car, while on crack.
They decided not to prosecute.
Connecticut, over the space of two days, the president's son solicited six different prostitutes, to service him.
Prosecutors declined to press any charges. Delaware 2019, records from Hunter Biden's laptop. Document a minimum of nine instances of him using or purchasing illegal drugs.
Prosecutors have declined to press charges. I could go on and on.
All told, our researchers have documented. Now, remember, only the rock solid ones, 150 crimes that Hunter Biden committed. Ranging from drugs, guns, prostitution, to influence peddling and tax fraud.
These are undisputed and well-documented. Yet, nobody is pressing charges.
I am disgusted and fed up. If any of us have done a tenth of this, we would be in prison today.
I have a plan. And I'm going to need your help. To make it work.
I'm going to outline it on Thursday, this coming Thursday, 8:00 p.m. on Blaze TV.
Commercial-free, special that is happening 8:00 p.m. on Thursday.
We need all hands on deck to make this work. So tune in. Tell your friends. Tell your neighbors. Invite them over to watch the special with you.
