Several pundits have focused on almost exclusively on Michael Sussmann, a lawyer for the DNC doing the bidding of Hillary Clinton, being charged with lying to the FBI and have ignored the more damning revelations contained in the indictment. John Durham has his sights on Hillary Clinton’s Campaign and those who enabled this false attack on Donald Trump.
One of the biggest clues is present on page 20 of the indictment:
Michael Sussman[ n] – Atty : [Law Firm- ] not doing this for any client Represents DNC, Clinton Foundation, etc.
Michael Sussmann was not licensed to practice law in Arkansas. The Clinton Foundation was and is based in Arkansas. How can a lawyer admitted to the bar in Washington, DC and New York carry out legal affairs for a 501 C3 corporation registered in Arkansas? That is one of the questions that Sussmann will have to answer. What was he doing for the Clinton Foundation in the District of Columbia when the Clinton Foundation has no legal foundation to operate in the District of Columbia?
Sussmann also was billing his time to Fusion GPS, which, according to the indictment, was acting as an agent for the Clinton Campaign:
Indeed, and as SUSSMANN concealed and failed to disclose, ( i ) SUSSMANN had spent time drafting one of the white papers he provided to the FBI General
Counsel and billed that time to the Clinton Campaign, and (ii) the U.S. Investigative Firm – which at the time was also acting as a paid agent of the Clinton Campaign – drafted another of those white papers.
This is not an extraneous issue nor is it inconsequential. Sussmann was acting as an agent for the Clinton Campaign. This means the Clinton Campaign is in the cross hairs of John Durham.
Paragraph 33 of the indictment lays out the identities of the others implicated in this conspiracy:
Further demonstrating that SUSSMANN carried out the aforementioned work on behalf of his clients, SUSSMANN continued in the weeks following this meeting to coordinate with Tech Executive- 1, Campaign Lawyer- 1, and the U.S. Investigative Firm to disseminate the Russian Bank- 1 allegations to the media SUSSMANN continued to bill his time for such work to the Clinton Campaign.
Tech Executive is alleged to be Rodney Joffe of Neustar. Others have speculated it is Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google. Regardless, the Tech Executive is now a target of the investigation and will likely be indicted. The “Campaign Lawyer” is most likely Marc Elias, formerly a partner with Perkins Coie. The fact that Elias left Perkins Coie is unusual to say the least. And the “U.S Investigative Firm” is Fusion GPS. Durham’s team has not leaked a word about the legal status of these three entities. But based on Durham’s previous investigations of FBI corruption connected to the Whitey Bulger case, it is highly unlikely that he is ignoring their role in enabling this conspiracy.
The members of the Clinton Campaign staff implicated in this conspiracy are identified in paragraph 25e of the indictment:
