Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is falsely asserting that Hillary Clinton spied on the Trump campaign and the Trump White House. The claim is based on a series of headlines based on a court filing by special counsel John Durham. Durham is doing an investigation into allegations that Trump was spied on and the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. What Durham actually found was that a lawyer linked to the Clinton campaign shared internet traffic data related to Trump-connected networks with the CIA.
There is no evidence that the data was obtained illegally or that the opposition research continued once Trump became president. But that didn’t stop Marjorie Taylor Greene from telling a small crowd of supporters in Texas, “I mean, can you guys believe that here we are how many years later? This is 2022 and we’re still hearing the truth coming out about how the Hillary Clinton campaign spied on candidate Donald J. Trump. And then even further they hacked into the White House and spied on the President of the United States?” People like Rep. Greene are brazenly coming up with these allegations out of thin air and they’re not at all what is being argued by the Durham court filings.
