It’s been a very long time since we’ve heard from special counsel John Durham. But that is about to change.
The former U.S. attorney was tasked by President Trump to investigate matters related to the 2016 Election. But when Joe Biden “won” in 2020, it looked like Durham’s criminal probe was dead in the water.
Now, as the statute of limitations approaches, we are seeing action.
Durham was investigating how the Obama administration and other Democrats foisted their Russian investigation. Many Americans believe the left wrongly targeted Trump, framing him for colluding with Russia. Durham’s original probe grew into a criminal investigation, sparking hope that the wrongdoers would finally face justice.
And after many years, Durham is taking action.
From Daily Wire:
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.
“Sussmann relayed data and analysis from cybersecurity researchers who thought that odd internet data might be evidence of a covert communications channel between computer servers associated with the Trump Organization and with Alfa Bank, a Kremlin-linked Russian financial institution.”
It appears Durham may have found a thread that goes all the way back to Hillary Clinton. He is expected to indict Michael Sussman, an attorney, for allegedly lying to the FBI.
Sussmann claimed that “odd internet data” he had found proved a connection between Trump and a Russian bank. This was back when the deep state was trying to find dirt to prove their accusation that Trump worked with Russia.
But even the FBI didn’t think Sussmann’s “evidence” had any merit, so it wasn’t even mentioned in any report. What is interesting, however, is what Sussmann went on to claim. He said he was meeting with the FBI all on his own. He was not representing any client.
However, he later testified to Congress a year later that he was representing an unnamed client that “specialized” in cybersecurity. Why does that matter?
Well, first off, that means he lied to the FBI—which is something worth investigating. On top of that, it seems Durham has records that show Sussmann was working for the Clinton 2016 campaign, around the time he met with the FBI.
Is this a solid link between Sussmann’s attempts to frame Trump? We can’t be sure. But it certainly raises suspicions. Durham is probably indicting him in order to get more details about his work with the Clinton campaign.
Could we be finally getting to the bottom of this web? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
