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!

BREAKING: Clinton herself ‘agreed’ to leak Trump-Russia allegations to press

Remember this 2016 post from Hillary herself just days away from the election? During Friday’s trial of her former attorney Michael Sussmann, some juicy details behind this vey post have emerged.

“Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, said that Clinton ‘agreed’ to leak allegations that the Trump Organization had a secret communications channel with Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media during his Friday testimony” reports National Review.

The media “report” Hillary tweeted about above, was spoon-fed to them with her blessing. Mook also revealed the “purpose” for the campaign to leak it to the press was to have a reporter “run it down” further and “vet it out.”

As for Mrs. Clinton’s involvement, Mook added that he “discussed it with Hillary as well” after which, “she agreed to” their decision to turn the loose gossip over to the press.

She was then able to use Slate’s “reporting” to discuss the fake collusion publicly. Clinton then tweeted the campaign’s press release on the “statement from Jake Sullivan on New Report Exposing Trump’s Secret Line of Communication to Russia.”

FBI agent James Baker, the then-agent who Sussmann took the Alfa Bank information to, testified in the trial Wednesday. He said he was “100 percent confident” that Sussmann said he wasn’t representing a client when they met.

A text message from Sussmann to Baker from the day prior reads: “Jim — it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own — not on behalf of a client or company — want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”

National Review reports of the case:

The former FBI general counsel said that he would have treated the meeting and subsequent investigation differently had he known Sussmann was coming forward on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

 The evidence that Sussmann delivered to Baker came in the form of Domain Name System (DNS) data that allegedly showed frequent communications between servers associated with the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The data was provided to Sussmann by Joffe, an executive at the cybersecurity firm Neustar, which was also being represented by Sussmann as part of his role as a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm.

FBI agent Scott Hellman testified Tuesday that he was immediately skeptical of the data and accompanying analysis that suggested illicit communications between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank. In fact, the quality of the analysis was so poor, that Hellman questioned whether its source had a “mental disability” in a private chat with FBI colleagues, obtained by prosecutors.

Opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which Perkins Coie hired to work on behalf of the Clinton campaign, translated the DNS data into laymen’s terms and pitched it to various reporters, including Franklin Foer, a writer for Slate.

 “We certainly hoped that he would publish an article,” former Fusion GPS employee Lauren Seago testified.

Foer obliged them, touting the claims in an article published on October 31, 2016, a little over a week before Election Day.
