Fox News is still coping with the repercussions of “parting ways” with its most popular anchor, Tucker Carlson. After going viral this week, however, some viewers are hailing “The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld as the “last trustworthy person” on Fox News.
During a segment of “The Five,” Gutfeld and the table discussed the final report by Special Counsel John Durham on the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. Gutfeld argued that the FBI’s misconduct is merely the top of the iceberg when it comes to the effort to demonize former President Donald Trump.
“The Left created a devil that was so big and so vast that they made all actions permissible. They made every institution, as the judge was saying, subject to suspicion. You can bury stories, create hoaxes, you can fund smears. It can go anywhere because this person must be stopped. Now we are left and none of it is true. So we had a half-a-decade hoax that infected and undermined every institution because we were made to believe this person is evil,” Gutfeld said about efforts to go after Trump for years.
“And then people make fun of people who are skeptical about an election? Why shouldn’t they be skeptical?” he added.

Gracelyn commended Gutfeld on Twitter for his courageous comments, tweeting, “Probably the last trustworthy person on FOX. I miss watching his program, but following the Carlson debacle, I can no longer provide ratings. I do view his online segments when I can locate them.”
Durham determined that the FBI initiated its investigation into Trump prior to the 2016 presidential election using “uncorroborated intelligence” and that agents repeatedly failed to maintain “strict fidelity to the law” throughout the investigation.
As soon as the report was made available to the public, the FBI acknowledged that several mistakes were made in 2016. The bureau also acknowledged that Durham’s findings are accurate.
“This report reinforces the importance of ensuring the FBI continues to do its work with the rigor, objectivity, and professionalism the American people deserve and rightly expect,” it added.
The Daily Caller highlighted key findings from the Hillary Clinton report:
The FBI received intelligence that Hillary Clinton’s campaign approved “a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services,” specifically by “tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee” to distract the public from her email scandals. The report indicates that CIA Director John Brennan personally briefed President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and FBI Director James Comey on Clinton’s scheme, referred to as the “Clinton Plan” in the report. Brennan recorded mentioning the plan in his handwritten notes.
According to the report, the FBI obtained the “Clinton Plan” while relying on the “Steele Dossier,” a discredited dossier containing salacious allegations about Trump’s personal sexual activity, which the FBI knew was funded and promoted by the Clinton campaign. Durham cites a meeting between the Dossier’s author, former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, and FBI agents, as well as messages between FBI officials, to demonstrate that the agents were aware of the evidence’s connection to Clinton.
The FBI and U.S. Department of Justice wasted little time investigating Trump, a “significant departure” from how they resisted efforts to investigate claims against Clinton’s campaign, according to Durham’s report.

Durham’s report also found that “neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement” of the investigation. CONTINUE READING…
