Special counsel John Durham has been trying for three years to prove wrongdoing on the part of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, the FBI or other government officials in their handling of accusations that then-candidate Donald Trump had nefarious ties to Russia. In court, Mr. Durham's staff has alleged that there was a "plan" to create an "October surprise" that would kneecap the Republican presidential nominee. His assertions have fueled endless right-wing commentary claiming that the FBI's investigation of Mr. Trump's Russia connections was illegitimately predicated, despite compelling evidence and outside investigations showing it was warranted. From its onset, the basis for Mr. Durham's probe was fallacious.
