In his most recent filing with the court, Special Counsel John Durham revealed that five associates of Hillary Clinton have taken the Fifth Amendment and refuse to cooperate with him. Two things you need to know about the 5th amendment. First, it does not protect the innocent, it protects the guilty and secondly, you can not use it to hide someone else’s crimes. I wonder if Hillary can hear the walls closing in.
Legal scholar Jonathan Turley noted in a commentary on the filing:
[Durham] is now moving to give immunity to a key witness while revealing that the claims made by the Clinton campaign were viewed by the CIA as “not technically plausible” and “user created.” He also revealed that at least five of the former Clinton campaign contractors/researchers have invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to cooperate in fear that they might incriminate themselves in criminal conduct.
Hillary’s lawyer, Michael Sussmann comes up for trial on May 16th. Acting as an agent for Hillary Clinton, Sussmann contacted the FBI and the CIA and fed them false information on Trump and the accusations of collusion. Sussmann lied to both the FBI and CIA, but he is only charged with lying to the FBI at this time.
Jonathan Turley also noted that the false accusations of a connection between Donald Trump also involved Marc Elias and Christopher Steele. Since we are talking about what could be long prison sentences, at least one of those involved could very well fold on the others and confirm it was a conspiracy and could involve treason charges against some of those involved.
Steele is the former British spy who worked for opposition research firm Fusion GPS to produce the fraudulent Russia “dossier” that triggered government surveillance of the Trump campaign and the broader “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory.
Elias is a prominent election attorney for Democrats who arranged the funding for the “dossier” and went on to lead Democrats’ efforts to force the adoption of vote-by-mail in key battleground states in the 2020 presidential election.
Durham’s filing indicates that the government wishes to introduce evidence of communications between the “Clinton Campaign leadership” and “Campaign Lawyer-1,” who is widely presumed to be Elias, about the Alfa Bank hoax.
