After the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump continued to claim that Hillary Clinton’s campaign spied on him. He maintained that it was a covert effort to link him to Russia for the left’s agenda.
Most mainstream news outlets dismissed the claims at the time, but Trump hasn’t changed his stance. And ever since, Special Counsel John Durham has been investigating the matter.
Now, a new court filing shows that in fact, Trump and Durham might have been correct all along.
The report erupted in Washington over the weekend, stunning politicos and lawmakers in Capitol Hill.
Fox News revealed that former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman has been charged with lying to the FBI. He supposedly said in September 2016 that he wasn’t doing work “for any client.”
However, Durham’s filing on February 11 maintains the opposite: it says that Sussman “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients,” including the Clinton campaign.
Here’s part of the initial report:
The filing says that Sussman and the tech executive had met and been in contact with another lawyer who was working for the Clinton campaign.
The filing says that during the summer of 2016, the tech executive worked with Sussman, an investigative firm retained by a law firm on behalf of the Clinton campaign, and employees at tech companies to gather ‘data.’
The filing added that Tech Executive-1 enlisted the help of researchers to “mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia.”
Durham’s report said this unnamed Tech Executive was trying to “please certain VIPs,” evidently referencing people at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.
Former President Donald Trump was quick to react to the explosive reveal. In a statement on Sunday, he said:
What Hillary Clinton and the Radical Left Democrats did with respect to spying on a President of the United States, even while in office, is a far bigger crime than Watergate.
It will be interesting to see how it was covered by the media and what Mitch McConnell and the RINOs will be doing about it. This is an insult to the Republican Party, but a far greater insult to our Nation.
Trump added that anyone involved “should be subject to criminal prosecution.”
The former POTUS even suggested that “in a stronger period of time in our country,” the guilty would be potentially facing the death penalty. And he said “reparations should be paid” to anyone damaged by the scandal.
No matter what happens now, though, it appears Trump has been vindicated — based on these filings, at least.
Trump wasn’t the only Republican leader to claim Hillary Clinton was behind the fabricated Russia/Trump collusion narrative, and many have been calling for a deeper probe into the matter.
That’s why Durham’s investigation began in the first place. And while it has taken some years, it seems the results are close at hand.
And if it can be proven that Clinton’s campaign spied on Trump before and potentially after the 2016 presidential election, that would be a gigantic development. And it wouldn’t be good news for Democrats, either.
When the next presidential election rolls around, everyone might wonder: will the left attempt another spy campaign?
- A filing by Special Counsel John Durham alleges that Hillary Clinton’s campaign tapped tech executives to fabricate the Trump/Russia narrative.
- Former President Donald Trump calls it “bigger than Watergate,” and says everyone involved should face criminal prosecution.
- Republican leaders and other politicos have blamed the Clinton campaign of inventing the far-left narrative during the 2016 presidential campaign.
