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.

    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!

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

Published

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
