During a recent Homeland Security Subcommittee hearing a top FBI official admitted she has never read the Durham Report.
Jill Murphy who serves as the FBI’s deputy assistant director of counterintelligence, told a room full of Republican lawmakers that she has not had time to read the Durham report.
In response to Murphy’s shocking statement Rep. August Pfluger of Texas said he was speechless.

Per The Hill:
Republican lawmakers denounced a senior FBI official during a hearing Tuesday after she said she hadn’t read special counsel John Durham’s report on the agency’s investigation into former President Trump’s alleged Russia ties.
“I’m honestly speechless at this point in time,” Rep. August Pfluger (R-Texas), chair of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence, told Jill Murphy, assistant director of counterintelligence at the FBI.

All though most FBI officials have not read the Durham report the FBI did previously release a very weak response to the Durham Report.
