Upon reading special counsel John Durham’s 27-page indictment of attorney Michael Sussman, I found myself asking, “Is there anything Perkins Coie lawyers would not do to keep their Democratic clients in power?” Thanks to Durham, we know they launched a cyberwar against candidate Donald Trump that makes their work on the Steele dossier seem half-hearted. What we need to know is whether their work in producing Barack Obama’s birth certificate was any more legit than these other misadventures.
As to Sussman, he stands accused of lying to the FBI, “to wit, on or about September 19, 2016, the defendant stated to the General Counsel of the FBI that he was not acting on behalf of any client in conveying particular allegations concerning a Presidential candidate, when in truth, and in fact, and as the defendant well knew, he was acting on behalf of specific clients, namely, Tech Executive-I and the Clinton Campaign.”
Durham could have summed up the charge in a page. Instead, he spent 27 pages outlining the skullduggery behind the deep state war on Donald Trump. According to Durham, Sussman worked with at least three high-tech firms, two university researchers, and several media outlets on a cybersmear campaign against candidate Trump that dwarfed the Steele dossier both in scope and in sophistication.
The Steele dossier was commissioned by Perkins Coie attorney Marc Elias, managed by Fusion GPS, and executed by international man of mystery, Christopher Steele. Elias makes a cameo appearance in the Durham report as “campaign lawyer 1” as does Fusion GPS, here labeled “U.S. Investigative Firm.”
The real star of the indictment, however,
is not Sussman but the still unidentified “Tech Executive-1.” Sussman
was billing time, ample time, both to the tech exec and to the Clinton
campaign. According to the indictment, the exec used “his access at
multiple internet companies to conduct opposition research and create a
‘narrative regarding Trump.’”..........To Read More...
