Bombshell Hillary Report ‘Bigger Than Watergate’
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign hired a tech company to “infiltrate” servers at Trump Tower and the White House to link former President Donald Trump to Russia, according to a filing from Special Counsel John Durham.
Durham, the Department of Justice prosecutor investigating the origins of the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe, filed a motion on Feb. 11 on potential conflicts of interests of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann’s representation.
Sussmann has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent for allegedly telling then-FBI General Counsel James Baker that he was not working on Clinton’s behalf when he presented the agency with documents that purported to link the Trump Organization to a Kremlin-affiliated bank two months before the 2016 election.
Sussmann has pleaded not guilty.
But Durham’s motion alleged Sussmann “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign.”
Records showed Sussmann “repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations,” involving an investigative firm, a tech executive, cyber researchers, and numerous employees at internet companies.
According to the motion, in 2017, Sussmann provided “an updated set of allegations” on the Trump-Russia connection to another government agency.
The accusations included suspicious DNS lookups by Russia-affiliated IP addresses, which “demonstrated Trump and/or his associates were using supposedly rare, Russian-made wireless phones in the vicinity of the White House and other locations.”
The allegations “relied, in part, on the purported DNS traffic” that Tech Executive-1 and others “had assembled pertaining to Trump Tower, Donald Trump’s New York City apartment building, the EOP, and … [a] healthcare provider.”
But Durham said his office found “no support for these allegations,” and that the evidence Sussmann provided was incomplete and skewed.
Trump issued a statement saying Durham’s latest filing vindicated him.
“The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia,” the statement read.
“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution.”
