More Damning Evidence Surfaces Against Hillary Clinton in Durham Probe
Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax continues to unearth more and more damaging evidence against Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with journalist Sharyl Attkisson, California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa argued that it’s time for Durham to get the ball rolling.
“Justice delayed is justice denied is not some sort of a trite statement. It’s very true,” Issa told Attkisson.
“The fact is, the time has passed. It is pretty irrelevant, except it’s a lesson to Congress that putting real-time limits and putting real meat in activities, including inspector general’s reports and so on, is more important than ever. The time it takes to complete an investigation, or the time it takes for Congress to get to the truth, impacts whether or not you’re going to get the truth and compliance in a timely fashion. If you can hold an administration accountable in real-time, they will cooperate. If they know they can run out the clock, as they often do, they won’t,” Issa said.
Sometime last month, a federal judge rejected a bid by Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann to “strike” a “factual background” section of Special Counsel John Durham’s early February court filing.
Sussmann’s legal team filed a motion demanding that the court remove portions of the Feb. 11 filing that included the “Factual Background” section by claiming that it would “taint” a jury.
“I’m not going to strike anything from the record,” noted U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Christopher Cooper during a status hearing. “Whatever effect the filing has had has already passed.”
“Allowing this case to go forward would risk criminalising ordinary conduct, raise First Amendment concerns, dissuade honest citizens from coming forward with tips, and chill the advocacy of lawyers who interact with the government,” the filing stated.
Durham’s team responded by calling his claims “absurd” and asked the federal court in the District of Columbia to proceed.
“And far from being immaterial, they went on to say that ‘the defendant’s false statement was capable of influencing both the FBI’s decision to initiate an investigation and its subsequent conduct of that investigation,” the filing continued.
In its response to the Sussmann filing, Durham’s team noted: “The defendant’s false statement to the FBI General Counsel was plainly material because it misled the General Counsel about, among other things, the critical fact that the defendant was disseminating highly explosive allegations about a then-Presidential candidate on behalf of two specific clients, one of which was the opposing Presidential campaign.”
Durham also revealed in a recent court filing, “revealed he has unearthed a text message showing Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann falsely told the FBI he was not working on behalf of any client when he delivered anti-Trump research.”
Durham also put “the courts on notice he is prepared to show the effort to smear Donald Trump with now-disproven Russia collusion allegations was a ‘conspiracy.’”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign conspired with the FBI and some other law enforcement officials to smear the Trump Campaign. But it didn’t stop there, the DNC managed to get the whole mainstream media behind their fake collusion story, and let it drag through the administration of the former president, partly to taint his image image discredit everything he tried to do.
