Donald Trump and his allies, like former Attorney General Bill Barr, ranted about the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives, saying that it was based in lies, conducted purely out of spite, and came at great cost to American taxpayers.

In response, they opened an investigation based in lies, conducted purely out of spite, and it has cost the American taxpayers millions.

Special investigator John Durham, who Barr appointed to probe the origins of the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion, suffered yet another loss in court as Igor Danchenko, the primary source of the Steele dossier compiled by the investigator who first began gathering and recording stories told to him by sources in his probe into those allegations, was acquitted of having lied to the FBI. As Danchenko had served as a longtime and treasured informant to the FBI, his handler told reporters that the investigation likely did the work of national security significant harm.

The story of Danchenko is just one of several losses Durham has faced in court following the investigation that Trump and Barr promised supporters would expose all the corruption in the investigation into his campaign. Instead, it has revealed only one case of a low-level lawyer who lied to the FBI.

According to CNN:

‘Durham has taken two cases to trial, and both have ended in acquittals. After more than three years looking for misconduct in the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe, Durham has only secured one conviction: the guilty plea of a low-level FBI lawyer, who got probation.’

Twitter had a lot to say about the failed Durham investigation, which Trump supporters once believed would vindicate their hero but has instead only underscored his ridiculousness. Read some of their comments below:
