Special Counsel John Durham filed new evidence Monday night against Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who has been charged with making false statements to the FBI in 2016 regarding the Trump organization and a tie to Russia’s Alfa Bank.
In a meeting with the FBI, Sussmann allegedly did not disclose that Clinton was his client. “Sussmann allegedly falsely claimed that he was not at the meeting on behalf of any client” writes National Review. The newest evidence includes a text message which supports that. The evening before the meeting, Sussman sent a text to an FBI official saying: “I’m coming on my own- not on behalf of a client or company – want to help the bureau.”
Durham’s Monday filing also includes references to the dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele. “A number of the allegations included in the Steele dossier, which was used by the FBI to obtain surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, have since been discredited” adds National Review.
National Review reports on the intricacies of the Steele/Sussmann/Clinton web:
Steele was a subcontractor for Fusion GPS, a research firm that Sussmann’s former law firm, Perkins Coie, had hired to look into potential links between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Marc Elias, a campaign law specialist and one of Sussmann’s partners at Perkins Coie, was representing the Clinton campaign and hired Fusion GPS.
Though Sussmann’s indictment does not mention the Steele dossier, Durham’s new filing refers to the dossier and Steele, including a meeting with Sussmann that Steele has said included the alleged suspicions data scientists had about odd internet data they thought might indicate a secret channel between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank.
Sussmann’s lawyers asked the judge to block prosecutors from making arguments and introducing evidence related to the dossier.

Carter on Hannity: House Judiciary Committee will subpoena DOJ over Biden classified docs
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
