Text messages confirm Clinton lawyer misled FBI: ‘I’m coming on my own’
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.

House passes debt-ceiling deal with support from two thirds of GOP caucus
After hours of debate, the House voted Wednesday night to approve a bipartisan debt-ceiling deal, taking a step toward averting a default on U.S. debt. The measure passed with 314 members voting in favor and 117 members voting in opposition. 149 Republicans and 165 Democrats voted to approve the bill, while 71 Republicans and 46 Democrats voted against it.
National Review writes the measure’s passage secures “a victory for House speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who managed to keep his caucus together despite a challenge from House Freedom Caucus members intent on securing greater spending concessions from the Biden White House.”
The bill will now head to the Senate. McCarthy said the measure is the “largest spending cut that Congress has ever voted for,” but faced opposition from members of his caucus who believe the deal “didn’t go far enough in restoring pre-Covid spending levels.”
In his speech on the House floor Wednesday before the vote, McCarthy pleaded with his colleagues to support what he had bargained for with Biden:
“They demanded a clean debt limit, which really means they spend more and you pay more in taxes. House Republicans said ‘no’,” McCarthy said.“Over the past four months, we fought hard to change how Washington works. We stopped the Democrats from writing a blank check after the largest spending binge in American history… The Fiscal Responsibility Act is the biggest spending cut in American history.”
National Review reports:
The agreement suspends the nation’s $31.4 trillion debt limit through January 1, 2025, and caps spending in the 2024 and 2025 budgets.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that the deal will reduce budget deficits by about $1.5 trillion between 2023 and 2033. Director of the CBO Phillip Swagel projected that there would be reductions in discretionary outlays of $1.3 trillion over the 2024–2033 period. Mandatory spending would decrease by $10 billion, revenues would decrease by $2 billion over the same period, and the interest on the public debt would decline by $188 billion.
Biden warned of the consequences of default, saying what would follow would include an economic recession, devastated retirement accounts, and millions of jobs lost.
“I made clear from the start of negotiations that the only path forward was a bipartisan budget agreement,” explained Biden on Twitter. “No one got everything they wanted. But that’s the responsibility of governing.”

The FBI is NOT of the hook on this, as anyone with two brain cells would’ve asked Michael Sussmann how he came into possession of this information.

There is NO TRUTH in any and all of the involvements of the “””clintons”””!
As the years go by, the truths are coming out because people see the changes coming and are scared of what will happen.
The LUCIFER BRIGADE of the Left is in full attack mode. But the TRUTH is the only answer to their lies!
