The results of the special counsel’s report on the 2016 election may result in considerable political difficulty for President Joe Biden. Special counsel John Durham released his findings on the origins of the probe into alleged, but disproven, collusion between former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government.
The report concluded that there was no significant evidence to back the federal probe into Trump’s campaign. Durham also found significant concern that public statements regarding alleged collusion were politically motivated.
The findings correspond with conservative concerns that the American intelligence community backed the findings desired by the Democratic Party.
Durham’s report also comes as evidence emerged that such an intelligence statement may have shifted control of the White House.
The declining trust in current and former intelligence agents also comes as it was recently revealed that the CIA may have been involved in crafting the Hunter Biden letter that may have affected the 2020 presidential election.
The letter asserted that the Hunter Biden laptop, reported first by the New York Post had all of the earmarks of a “Russian information operation.” The newspaper’s Twitter account was suspended and the story was barred from sharing on social media.
The effort to have the letter signed by 51 former national security officials was reportedly organized by current Secretary of State Antony Blinken and former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell.

Further inquiry found that the laptop’s contents were true.
Furthermore, House Republicans recently announced a number of revelations about Biden family financial transactions.
This included a $1 million payment to members of the Biden family from a Romanian oligarch under investigation for corruption.
Earlier this month Rep. James Comer (R-KY) announced the findings during a press event with a number of Republican members of the House Oversight Committee.
He said that while Biden, then Vice President “was lecturing Romania on anti-corruption policy, in reality, he was a walking billboard for his son and family to collect money.”
“We’ve never seen a presidential family receive these sums of money from adversaries around the world,” he said.
