The repeated and unprecedented attacks on former President Donald Trump, as he emerged as a political outsider and won the presidency, have prompted many to question whether leading Democrats or Democratic supporters are behind these attacks in an effort to prevent the popular former president from running for reelection.
Special Counsel John Durham, a former federal prosecutor appointed to investigate the origins of the ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ fabrication by then-Attorney General William Barr, has disclosed that he has found connections between the attempts to tarnish Trump.
Several months ago, Durham revealed for the first time in a bombshell court filing that there was a “joint venture or conspiracy” between then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign, researchers, and others to fabricate the collusion story in order to hurt Trump’s chances of winning the election and disrupt his presidency.
“These parties acted as ‘joint venturer[s]’ and therefore should be ‘considered as co-conspirator[s],’” he wrote.
Just the News reported that Durham has recently released a text message that proves Michael Sussmann, Hillary Clinton’s campaign attorney, misled to the FBI about not working on behalf of any client while delivering anti-Trump research.
According to prosecutors, Sussmann was actually working for both the Clinton campaign and another client, as reported by Just the News late last year.
Durham has indicated he is willing to present evidence that the attempt to defame Donald Trump with the false accusation was a “conspiracy.”
Conservative Brief reports:
“The existence of the text message between Sussmann and then-FBI General Counsel James Baker was revealed in a court filing late Monday night by Durham’s team. Prosecutors said they intend to show Sussmann gave a false story to the FBI but then told the truth about working on behalf of the Clinton campaign when he later testified to Congress,” the outlet’s report continued.
“Jim – it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss,” Sussmann said in a text to Baker on Sept. 18, 2016, the new court filing revealed. “Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own – not on behalf of a client or company – want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”
The prosecution stated that the newly discovered text message will be a crucial piece of evidence during the trial because it will show that Sussmann misled the FBI.
“The defendant lied in that meeting, falsely stating to the General Counsel that he was not providing the allegations to the FBI on behalf of any client,” Durham’s motion said. “In fact, the defendant had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including (i) a technology executive (‘Tech Executive-1’) at a U.S.-based Internet company (‘Internet Company-1’), and (ii) the Clinton Campaign.”
