It was recently reported by ConservativeBrief that Special Counsel John Durham said in a court filing last month that attorneys for the 2016 presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers that were in Trump Tower, and after the election in the White House, in order to create an “inference” and “narrative” to link Donald Trump to Russia.
Fox Business host Stuart Varney believes that Durham likely did “Democrats are favor,” arguing the news could prevent Hillary Clinton from mounting a 2024 presidential run as rumors swirl she may mount a bid.
“This is unbelievable. In the media Trump’s hatred still rules. The Durham report also revealed that the current National Security Advisor played a role.
Look at this, three weeks before the election in 2016 Jake Sullivan said, ‘Computer scientists have uncovered a covert server linking the Trump organization to a Russian-based bank.
This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery to Trump’s ties to Russia,’” Varney said.
“Sullivan is now the mouthpiece for President Biden in the Russia-Ukraine standoff. He is the National Security Advisor and he’s at the heart of this nonsense six years ago. Now in one respect, John Durham did the Democrats favor, Hillary will surely not be running in 2024,” he added.
The revelation was made in a court filing late last week that centered on potential conflicts of interest connected to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been charged with allegedly lying to the FBI.
The bombshell news was first reported by Fox News:
Durham filed a motion on Feb. 11 focused on potential conflicts of interest related to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent. Sussman has pleaded not guilty.
The indictment against Sussman says he told then-FBI General Counsel James Baker in September 2016, less than two months before the 2016 presidential election, that he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and held a meeting in which he presented “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communications channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.
In the February 11 filing in a section titled “Factual Background,” Durham said that Sussman “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.”
It said that Sussman’s “billing records reflect” that he “repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations.”
The filing showed that the Tech Executive and Sussman met and talked to another law partner, who was serving as General Counsel to the Clinton campaign. That attorney, sources said, is Marc Elias, who worked at the law firm Perkins Coie.
Durham’s filing states that in July 2016, the tech executive worked with Sussman, a U.S. investigative firm retained by Law Firm 1 on behalf of the Clinton campaign, numerous cyber researchers, and employees at multiple internet companies to “assemble the purported data and white papers.”
