John Durham, the special counsel appointed by Attorney General William Barr to look into the Trump Russia just gave Hillary Clinton some terrible news. Durham just issued a new round of subpoena’s and he wants documents from one of Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s law firms.
This is bad news for not only Hillary but also the entire Dem Party because Perkins Coie, the subpoenaed law firm, is the go-to firm for the Dems political machine. CNN thinks this may mean Durham is going after the entire Dem/Hillary machine.
From CNN: In seeking additional documents from Sussmann’s former law firm, Perkins Coie, investigators from the special counsel’s office appear to be sharpening their focus on the Democratic political machinery during the 2016 campaign and efforts to tie Trump to Russia.
Perkins Coie’s clients in 2016 included the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The law firm also hired on the campaign’s behalf a research company that commissioned the dossier from ex-British spy Christopher Steele that alleged that Trump was compromised by Russia.
While working for Perkins Coie, Sussmann also represented Rodney Joffe, a cybersecurity expert referred to in Durham’s indictment as “Tech Executive-1.” In 2016, Joffe, who has not been previously identified, worked with researchers to collect internet data about the Trump Organization that Sussmann took to the FBI.
John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman in 2016 sounds nervous. CNN reported:
John Podesta, 2016 Clinton campaign chairman, declined to comment on the tactics used by the campaign.
But he called Durham’s indictment of Sussmann an “exercise in diversion and obfuscation.” He added that Barr hired Durham specifically to pursue a partisan investigation of Democrats and that after two years “he doesn’t have a lot to show for it.”
Durham recently indicted one of Clinton’s lawyers who worked for the firm, Michael Sussmann.
“Michael Sussmann is a highly respected national security and cyber security lawyer, who served the U.S. Department of Justice during Democratic and Republican administrations alike,” Sussmann attorneys Sean Berkowitz and Michael Bosworth said.
“Mr. Sussmann has committed no crime. Any prosecution here would be baseless, unprecedented, and an unwarranted deviation from the apolitical and principled way in which the Department of Justice is supposed to do its work. We are confident that if Mr. Sussmann is charged, he will prevail at trial and vindicate his good name.”
Sussmann’s lawyers “are said to have insisted that their client was representing the cybersecurity expert he mentioned to Congress and was not there on behalf of or at the direction of the Clinton campaign and that the billing records are misleading.”
According to Sussmann’s own bio he worked for the Clinton campaign. It says: Michael Sussmann, a former federal prosecutor, is a nationally recognized privacy, cybersecurity, and national security attorney.
He is engaged in some of the most sophisticated and high-stakes matters today, taking on global data breaches, government investigations, and other bet-the-company representations.
Michael’s more notable work includes his past representation of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in their responses to Russian hacking in the 2016 presidential election. This work was detailed in the best-selling books The Apprentice (2018), The Perfect Weapon (2018), Russian Roulette (2018), and Hacks (2017).
