The Special Counsel John Durham dropped a bombshell in a recent posting concerning the trial of Michael Sussmann. The FBI knew immediately that there was nothing to the hoax, but they assigned agents to investigate the matter. They told the agents that the information came from the DOJ. But, in reality, it came from Hillary Clinton’s campaign. No doubt, this was done to help Hillary to defeat Trump in the presidential election.
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager Robby Mook on Friday testified that Hillary personally approved of the dissemination of the bogus Trump-Russia Alfa Bank accusations to the media.
“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” Mook said in court on Friday.
“I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter,” Mook testified.
But, then came the new bombshell as Durham’s team revealed that Sussmann and Clinton were not the only ones passing out misinformation. The FBI did as well. By telling the agents that the information came from the DOJ, the agents would be more inclined to believe the information. Had they known it came from the Hillary Clinton campaign, they would have reached the same conclusion that they had, but much sooner.
Bonchie at Red State reports:
Sussmann is charged with lying to the FBI, something he allegedly did when he hid who he was working for while sharing the now-debunked Alfa-Bank story. That disinformation campaign, which was meant to falsely assert Donald Trump was colluding with the Russians during the 2016 election, has now been directly tied to Hillary Clinton during the trial after it was revealed that she approved its dissemination.
But apparently, Sussmann and Hillary Clinton by proxy weren’t the only ones lying. According to documents presented by Durham, the FBI lied about the Alfa Bank smear’s provenance, telling agents it had come from the DOJ. In reality, Sussmann had brought it directly to the FBI, with the leadership being aware of its origins as badly done political opposition research.
It’s just the kind of corruption, we have come to expect from the FBI. It’s time to shut them down and start all over.
