(RightWing.org) – On May 15, Special Counsel John Durham released his long-awaited final report, summarizing his four-year inquiry to determine whether federal officials — namely the FBI and the Justice Department — violated the law in connection with their investigation involving Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Attorney General Merrick Garland released the 306-page document later that day without any redactions, additions, or other modifications. The Durham report’s release sparked an immediate response by media personalities, notably one by Fox News host Jesse Watters.
Watters reacted to the document’s release in an unabashed airing of his “Jesse Watters Primetime” show. He began by noting that Durham found out what the rest of the country already knew — “the whole Russia/Trump collusion story was a hoax [created] by Democrats.” He also spent considerable time discussing allegations that Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 campaign received illegal contributions from overseas sources and the FBI and Justice Department’s decision to “frame Trump as a traitor” instead of investigating those claims.
Durham report FINALLY dropped but it told us what we already knew. Trump-Russia Collusion was a GIANT HOAX— started by The Democrats, a DNC Hatchet Man made up the “Pee Tape Story”, and the FBI shut down 2 investigations into The Clintons! #FoxNews pic.twitter.com/44LGzuyYcZ

Turning his attention to President Joe Biden, Watters stated that while Justice Department officials were “illegally spying” on the Trump campaign, “Barack Obama’s vice president was [accepting] foreign bribes.” Watters didn’t elaborate on that claim or offer any evidence supporting it. However, it echoes information obtained from the litany of investigations recently launched by House Republicans into the Biden family since they regained control of the chamber earlier this year.
For example, Right Wing recently reported on a memorandum released to the public by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability detailing the transfer of over a million dollars to several members of the Biden family. A business partner of First Son Hunter Biden named Rob Walker, reportedly funneled money from a Chinese company to Hallie Biden, the wife of the president’s deceased son Beau Biden.
Walker also sent money to a company owned by the president’s brother, James Biden, and to current and now-defunct companies and corporations controlled or linked to Hunter Biden. It remains to be seen if this is what Watters was referring to or not.
