The intelligence agencies of the federal government are under intense scrutiny. But no one was expecting them to admit this.
And a top FBI official dropped this bombshell while testifying to Congress.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that Joe Biden has been weaponizing the federal government against the American people and Biden’s enemies.
The FBI specifically has been targeting Donald Trump with raids and lawsuits and pro-life activists have had their homes raided.
And Congressional Republicans are going to get answers.
During testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security, an FBI employee admitted that she had not read the Durham report.
Jill Murphy, the FBI’s Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence, appeared before Congress on Tuesday.

During the hearing, Rep. August Pfluger (R-TN), chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence, questioned Murphy about the Durham report, only to learn that she had not yet read it.
Murphy said, “I have not read that report, sir,” when asked if she was familiar with it.
When pressed again, she stated that she had not “yet” read the Durham report.
Pfluger remained silent for several seconds after her response.
“I’m honestly speechless at this point in time,” he finally said. “I’m not sure what to think of this as someone who has spent an entire career in counterintelligence.”
Pfluger then briefly reviewed the report’s findings, stating that the FBI had worked with uncorroborated information, and questioned if it was relevant to Murphy.
“So again, sir, I haven’t read the Durham report. So I’m not sure, you know, I have no knowledge of—” she responded, trailing off.
Pfluger inquired as to why Murphy hadn’t seen the report yet, to which she replied that she hadn’t had time.
The Tennessee Republican then advised her to read the report.
Durham’s final report was made public on May 15.
Though no criminal charges were recommended, the special counsel issued a stinging indictment of the FBI, noting that its handling of the investigation was “seriously deficient” and caused “severe reputational harm.”
