Just when you thought the special investigation into Hillary Clinton, the FBI, and Deep State spying on President Trump’s presidential campaign was over, John Durham hits you with a bombshell.
Special counsel John Durham is reportedly expected to indict attorney Michael Sussmann, who was allegedly connected to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, for allegedly lying to the FBI during a meeting about Trump-Russia matters.
The case against Mr. Sussmann centers on the question of who his client was when he conveyed certain suspicions about Mr. Trump and Russia to the F.B.I. in September 2016. Durham plants to investigate whether Sussmann was secretly working for the Clinton campaign — which he denies.
Durham will have to bring the charges in the next couple of days due to a five-year statute of limitations on such cases.
Sussmann relayed data and analysis from cybersecurity researchers who thought that odd internet data might be evidence of a covert communications channel between Trump-owned computer servers and Alfa bank, a Russian financial institution. The F.B.I. eventually decided those concerns had no merit. Robert Mueller, who took over the Russia Collusion investigation, failed to mention the findings in his final report.
Durham reportedly found that Sussmann said during a meeting in 2016 that he was not representing any client when he sought the meeting. However, in a 2017 deposition before Congress, Sussmann testified that he sought the meeting on behalf of an unnamed client who specializes in cybersecurity.
The report said that Durham’s actions lead outsiders to believe that he is pursuing the theory that the Clinton campaign used Perkins Coie to submit suspicious information to the FBI about Trump and Russia to hurt his campaign.
As information trickles about the illegal spy campaign waged against Trump and his associates, one is left to wonder exactly when these Deep State actors – including Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama – will be forced to face consequences of their actions.
