Former lawyer for Clinton’s 2016 campaign, Michael Sussman, is being charged with “falsely stating to the general counsel that he was not providing the allegations to the FBI on behalf of any client” when giving false information to the FBI about a tie between then-candidate Trump and a Russian bank with ties to the Kremlin.
New filings by Durham also show he also gave false information to the CIA, having told the agency he met with the FBI, but about something “unrelated.” The information Sussman provided to both federal agencies was provided by “Tech Executive 1” identified as Rodney Joffe.
The data was used to create “an inference” and “narrative” to try and tie Trump to Russia, added Durham. In his court filing Friday, Durham added the CIA had concluded that the data Sussman gave to them was “not technically plausible” and was “user created.”
The data, gathered by Joffe, was exploited “by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump” said Durham in February.
In his filing Friday, Durham wrote he believes the government expects to “adduce evidence at trial” that will reflect that the FBI and the CIA ‘concluded that the Russian Ban 1 allegations were untrue and unsupported.”
Additionally, Durham wrote:
“For example, while the FBI did not reach an ultimate conclusion regarding the data’s accuracy or whether it might have been in whole or in part genuine, spoofed, altered, or fabricated, Agency 2 concluded in early 2017 that the Russian Bank 1 data and Russian Phone Provider 1 data was not ‘technically plausible,’ did not ‘withstand technical scrutiny,’ ‘contained gaps,’ ‘conflicted with [itself],’ and was ‘user created and not machine/tool generated.”

MI police memos confirm 2020 nationwide voter fraud; info was even given to FBI
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office has confirmed that there was in fact a state investigation into thousands of suspected fraudulent voter registrations during the 2020 election. Additionally, the information was referred to the FBI. According to police memos reviewed by Just The News, Michigan authorities suspected there was a possible voter registration fraud scheme occurring across multiple states during the 2020 election and were concerned enough to bring in the FBI.
Just The News writes “but what happened since remains mostly a mystery” adding:
Department and Michigan State Police, a firm called GBI Strategies was under scrutiny as an organization central to alleged voter registration fraud in the 2020 presidential election, which was first investigated by city and state authorities before the FBI took over.
Contacts between local law enforcement and the FBI continued into 2022 but there is no evidence of what happened after that in the memos obtained by Just the News through state Freedom of Information FOIA requests.
Police from Michigan interviewed GBI Strategies employees there and cited specific instances of registrations that appeared suspicious or fraudulent, the memos show. One State Police memo described the possible crime being investigated as “Election Fraud by Forgery.”
Specifics of what happened include the city clerk’s office saying that a woman dropped off fraudulent voter registrations on Oct. 8, 2020 and said she worked for GBI Strategies, the police report reads.
The police interviewed the woman, called “Suspect 1” in the police report, and she explained that she “receives $1150.00 a week, hotels services and a rental vehicle for her work.”
She also said she was “tasked with finding unregistered voters and provide them with a form so they can get registered and obtain their ballot,” according to the police report. “Suspect 1 initially stated that her ‘canvassers’ earn money for each person that completes the form. She later told us that they are paid $9.25 per hour with extra money for working weekends.”
Muskegon police interviewed yet another woman who worked for GBI Strategies from Atlanta, Ga. She worked with another man from Atlanta and had a supervisor from New York. The woman also mentioned a Philadelphia office.
Danny Wimmer, press secretary for the State Attorney General,told The Detroit News that GBI Strategies conducts voter registration drives and is headquartered in Tennessee.
Earlier this month, Wimmer, told Just the News that among 8,000 to 10,000 voter registration forms that were submitted to the Muskegon clerk before the 2020 general election, some were suspected to be fraudulent.
“An organization turned in some thousands of voter registrations throughout the fall of 2020, estimated on the high end to be cumulatively 8-10,000, and some within those batches were found to be suspicious or fraudulent,” Wimmer said. There were legitimate registrations within the batches. The city clerk receiving the batches alerted authorities when she began noticing irregularities.
“None of the fraudulent material was incorporated into the state’s qualified voter file, and this had no effect on any ballot requests or associated processes. This attempted fraud was detected because the system worked,” Wimmer added.
The Muskegon Police Department began investigating GBI Strategies after the Muskegon City Clerk’s Office reported suspected voter registration fraud, according to a police report first dated Oct. 16, 2020, which Just the News obtained from a FOIA request.
