Special counsel John Durham has found explosive new evidence to support his working theory that Hillary Clinton – in an effort to deflect attention from the probe of her abuse of classified information and defeat Donald Trump – colluded with Russians and with establishment media to smear the Republican candidate with the Russia collusion hoax.
In a court filing earlier this month, Durham said the evidence in his probe of the Obama administration’s investigation of the now-debunked charge of Trump-Russia collusion is leading him to conclude that Hillary Clinton, her operatives and her campaign formed a “joint venture or conspiracy” to undermine Trump during the 2016 campaign.
Durham already has presented evidence that indicted Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann falsely told the FBI he was not working on behalf of any client when he delivered to the bureau the bogus claim that Trump had a secret communication channel with the Kremlin at the Moscow-based Alfa Bank to hijack the election. The false allegations against Trump ended up on the front pages of major newspapers citing anonymous sources familiar with the FBI probe.
Now, the Washington Times reported Tuesday, Durham has obtained evidence that undermines the last line of defense for Sussmann and the Clinton campaign: that the campaign hired the research firm Fusion GPS to do legal work, and the firm’s actions, therefore, are protected by attorney-client privilege.
Ahead of the upcoming trial of Sussmann, a former partner at the Clinton campaign’s law firm Perkins Coie, Durham obtained hundreds of emails showing employees of Fusion GPS peddled to journalists unverified allegations against Trump.
Individuals tied to Clinton’s campaign tried to keep the damning evidence from the trial by asserting Fusion GPS’ “research” for the campaign should be protected under attorney-client privilege.
The Times reported the Fusion GPS emails to news outlets led to New York Times and Reuters articles about the FBI investigating the now-debunked Alfa Bank story.
The Fusion hired hands also peddled a false story published by the Wall Street Journal about a Trump adviser meeting with a former KGB official close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
And, among many more stories, was a Washington Post article about the false claim that a Trump campaign adviser was investing in Russia.
Fusion GPS was the firm that commissioned the infamous dossier of bogus, salacious claims about Trump – later shown to be sourced by anonymous Russian operatives – that was the catalyst for the Obama Justice Department’s investigation of alleged Trump-Russia collusion. Earlier this month, the Federal Election Commission fined Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee for hiding its funding of the debunked dossier.
It was Sussman’s partner at Perkins Coie, senior Clinton campaign official Marc Elias, who pushed the dossier to the FBI. The document was the primary evidence presented to a secret FISA court to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
