CLIFF NOTES ANALYSIS ON THE FINAL DURHAM REPORT
Legitimate or Illegitimate?
Fruit of the Poisonous Tree
Fruit of the Poisonous Tree is a legal terminology in that if the source (the "tree") of the evidence or evidence itself is tainted, then anything gained (the "fruit") from it is tainted as well.
The Durham reports findings determined there was no evidence of Trump Russian Collusion and that the FBI never had any legal basis to open up its investigations into Trump and his team members.
Durham, in his report, wrote: "Neither U.S. law enforcement nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation," Durham wrote. Crossfire Hurricane is the FBI codename for the investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign."
The information from the FBI Crossfire Hurricane investigation and the manipulation of the Intelligence Community Activity Report (ICA) was the justification for the Scope memo and appointment of a Special Counsel by the DOJ.
Because the evidence was tainted and derived illegally from the FBI Crossfire Hurricane investigation, the DOJ violated the Fruits of the Forbidden Tree doctrine as Mueller's team of lawyers knew beforehand there was no Russian collusion. Yet, they proceeded knowingly and willfully in constructing a Russian collusion narrative to frame members of Team Trump with a crime. These are major Brady violations by the DOJ lawyers involved and are potential crimes.
In the interest of Justice, both the DOJ and Congress should demand that all those convicted by Mueller's team expunge their records of convictions.
The question for the media and the Congressional Oversight Committee that needs to answer by SC Durham is: Why didn't Durham conduct a conspiracy investigation knowing there was a conspiratorial plan to destroy Trump? In his court filings and Final Report, Durham established a prima facie case for Conspiracy, meeting the criminal elements for Title 18 USC 371, under the fraud statute of defrauding the public.
Why didn't Durham follow the investigative leads and evidence to its logical conclusion of holding those accountable for the Conspiracy to destroy Trump?
Durham conducted more of an administrative investigation focusing on the process instead of criminality.
Durham never pursued a conspiracy investigation; by not doing so, Durham has left the nation in a significant predicament; how will those involved in the greatest corruption scandal, the crime of the Century, “The Trump Russian Hoax” conspiracy, ever be held accountable in a court of law.
The excellent news is Durham, in his court filings and final report, met all the elements of the crime of Conspiracy under Title 18 USC 371 the criminal conspiracy statute to defraud the American public by establishing the conspiratorial agreement that this was a well-designed conspiracy plan to destroy Trump and is continuing today as the statute of limitations are still in play until 2028.
The most salient point for the public, is that there is still a legal pathway to restore the public trust in the justice system and Rule of Law.
In 2025 a new President with a new AG will have three years left (2028) to conduct a conspiracy investigation in finishing Durham what Durham failed to do by beginning from the origins of the conspiratorial agreement in connecting the dots of each overt act with the roles of those involved by obtaining their communications, combined with the evidence already documented by Durham and the Inspector General reports which I believe would provide the conclusive proof needed for a successful prosecution of those involved for their roles in the crime of the century, the Russian hoax conspiracy.
