He may no longer be our president, but he's still stacking wins and owning his enemies. 

The years-long investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation is over. Its conclusions were damning for the FBI, the Department of Justice, and their allies in the media. The game is over, and Donald Trump has won. 

The FBI's long list of corruption and politically motivated actions has finally been exposed. Special Counsel John Durham's 300-page report reveals what we've known since the 2016 election: the FBI has become the political police force of the Democratic Party. Fueled by animus toward the now-former president, these agents engaged in overreach and malfeasance for which someone should be imprisoned. We can sift through the years of nonsense all week. The only headline liberal newspapers should have today can be summarized in three words: Trump was right

He was right about these actions being part of the Deep State cabal, a loose confederation of intelligence and DOJ officials who intentionally engaged in operations aimed at hamstringing the Trump administration. The leaked cables between then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and ex-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak are a primary example—these are never known to the press unless someone in the IC delivers them gift-wrapped to the media. The FBI's hatred of Trump is detailed in the text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. Page was a bureau lawyer, while Strzok was a top counterintelligence agent; both were involved in an extramarital affair. The tens of thousands of messages embarrassed the FBI, which has long channeled professionalism and objectivity in its actions. 

Strzok's message to Page, where he said the FBI would stop Trump, stood out the most. He tried to pass that off as him exhibiting his patriotism. Strzok signed off on the spy operation against the Trump campaign, which was started when he, then-FBI Director James Comey, and ex-deputy director Andrew McCabe decided to use the Steele Dossier to get this circus going. The dossier was a piece of political propaganda, an opposition research project funded by the Clinton campaign. 

They knew this and that there was evidence that this could be riddled with Russian disinformation. This key detail was omitted because they wanted to keep the illegal spy warrants which targeted Trump officials alive. The core evidence behind this charade was deficient. 

"The objective facts show that the FBI's handling of important aspects of the Crossfire Hurricane matter were seriously deficient," wrote Durham. "Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the (Justice) Department and FBI failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report." 

And here's the kill shot: 

"Neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation." 

Heads must roll at the FBI, a tall order since no one has been adequately punished for this attempted coup. It's treason. Punishment for treason should always be death, and if this tall order is met—all family members of the conspirators should have their citizenship revoked. But this will never happen, as the political class always protects its allies. For now, the FBI is and should be viewed as a joke and not afforded any deference it once commanded over this massive election interference scheme, which it thought would remain hidden. Remember, the agency was confident that Hillary would win the election. When she didn't, Obama officials scrambled, with Barack hosting a critical meeting in January 2017, where he and his cronies drafted a game plan to protect this hoax. 

After years of knowing the truth, we've been mostly vindicated about Trump. For liberals aghast at the findings or still clinging onto hope that some smoking gun evidence exposing Trump as a Russian agent will be unearthed soon, I don't know what to tell you—you're mentally ill and should ask your doctor if Paxil is right for you.
