The Senator speaks the truth – those who were involved from top to bottom of the government should be held accountable. The time/money they spent disrupting and putting the country through this six year hoax was a crime. Plain and simple.
Now it is time to bring this to a climax by those who are responsible for handling this – have to go forward and punish those who orchestrated it. If not, you have failed the people.

Tuberville on Durham report: ‘If people don’t go to jail … let’s don’t have elections anymore’
Opinion by William Thornton, al.com • Tuesday
Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville today said yesterday’s Durham report shows that “a whole list of people lied,” including members of Congress, about links between the Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.
Speaking to Newsmax, Tuberville said he “can’t even talk about it it’s so bad.”
Speaking on “John Bachman Now,” Tuberville said, “If people don’t go to jail for this, the American people should just stand up and say, ‘Listen, enough’s enough, let’s don’t have elections anymore. I wish there was a special investigation into the voter fraud, but it was outrageous what happened, but nobody wanted to look into it because they were afraid they were going to be called out. But it is what it is. I hate that it happened.”
Efforts to reach Tuberville’s office for clarification were not immediately successful.
Special counsel John Durham released a roughly 300-page report yesterday, finding that the FBI rushed into its investigation of ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign and relied too much on raw and unconfirmed information.
Trump and allies had claimed the investigation would expose massive wrongdoing by law enforcement and intelligence officials. However, prosecutors secured a guilty plea from a little-known FBI employee but lost the only two criminal cases they took to trial.

Trump, on his Truth Social platform, claimed the report showed the American people had been “scammed.”

“The Swamp does not like any outsider, whatsoever,” Tuberville said.
Tuberville also said Mexican drug cartels are “running our borders now,” in response to questions about the end of Title 42, the coronavirus restrictions on asylum that have allowed the U.S. to quickly turn back migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border for the past three years.
“It’s not Joe Biden,” Tuberville said. “It’s not the Democrat Party. It’s not the American people. It’s not the Border Patrol. The cartels are running it. They’re controlling it every day. It’s a disaster. It’s a crisis.”
However, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Sunday that the number of encounters along the southern border has dropped by 50% since last week.
Tuberville said Mayorkas had “lied about this the whole time.”
“You know, they sent 1,500 troops down there, to make sure they get them in quicker,” he said. “That’s all they did. We need 15,000 down there with guns to help keep them out.”
