Off and on today, I’ve been going through Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s investigation into members of the Trump campaign in 2016 and beyond. It’s 434-pages long and I’m a slow reader, so it’ll be a day or two before I’m done. But the reactions I’ve seen so far confirm what I’ve seen in the first 150-or-so-pages: There was really bad stuff happening at the FBI under President Obama’s Department of Justice. But that’s not even the biggest takeaway of the day.
What many journalists noted but few expanded on was in U.S. Attorney John Durham’s statement regarding the IG report. If there’s a truly important piece of information to glean from today’s events, this is it.
In my humble opinion, the most important thing I've read so far today, is not from the IG report, but from Durham's statement here.

This, folks, is huge. I’ll admit, I missed it on my first read of Durham’s statement because I was busy noticing the passive-aggressive knock on the Inspector General in the first sentence. He respected the mission and the work, not the report nor the IG himself. Cute. But the next sentence is the bombshell.
“However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.,” the statement read.
The scope and scale of Durham’s investigation has always been assumed as being larger than the IG’s. Durham is looking for wrongdoings, corruption, and actual crimes that may have been committed by people in and out of the DoJ while the IG’s investigation was more about process and making sure proper procedures were followed.
But until today, we didn’t know how wide of a net Durham was casting. Now we know it’s very likely a huge one that potentially reaches into other departments, agencies, and branches of government. We knew he was investigating abroad, but the reiteration that he’s “developing” information from a vast array of sources is heartening.
In other words, Durham is going beyond directly investigating the investigators. He’s looking into connections that could reach into Ukraine and other European countries. He’s likely also looking at how Congress interacted in the investigation.
He may even be looking into the past administration itself. Many have questioned how President Obama and his team could have remained completely obliviously and hands-off in letting his DoJ run amok in this investigation. Perhaps now, we’ll find out.
The IG report wasn’t the letdown that mainstream media played it up to be for conservatives last week. There was real meat to it. But that meat may be scraps compared to what John Durham is finding. How deep does this rabbit hole go?

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
