While the Durham investigation has taken far longer to produce results than anyone wanted, it is becoming increasingly clear that he has been incredibly thorough.
With each successive filing, more details are being filled in that tie Hillary Clinton’s campaign to the plot to weaponize the justice system against a presidential nominee, and later, a duly-elected sitting president.
People had wondered why there were so many pages in the original filing. It’s because he was entirely confident that the allegations he has been leveling are backed up by a lot of supporting evidence.
We’ve seen a few bombshells already — including evidence that tech wizards were surreptitiously monitoring Trump’s electronic activity even AFTER he was elected and sworn in.
Now we’re seeing him provide evidence that shows the predicate of the investigation was a setup based on bogus evidence.
Durham also alleges that Sussmann in February 2017 provided an “updated set of allegations,” including the Alfa Bank claims, and additional allegations related to Trump to a second U.S. government agency, which Fox News has confirmed was the CIA.
In his filing Friday, Durham says the government expects to “adduce evidence at trial” that will reflect that the FBI and the CIA “concluded that the Russian Bank 1 allegations were untrue and unsupported.
“For example, while the FBI did not reach an ultimate conclusion regarding the data’s accuracy or whether it might have been in whole or in part genuine, spoofed, altered, or fabricated, Agency 2 concluded in early 2017 that the Russian Bank 1 data and Russian Phone Provider 1 data was not ‘technically plausible,’ did not ‘withstand technical scrutiny,’ ‘contained gaps,’ ‘conflicted with [itself],’ and was ‘user created and not machine/tool generated,” Durham wrote.
However, Durham states that “the Special Counsel’s Office has not reached a definitive conclusion in this regard.” —FoxNews
The Alfa Bank allegation was critical to how Trump had been framed as potentially compromised by Russian interests. But it was in some way doctored. But they were used anyway. You’d think the Mueller Report should have been able to discover that — if they had been working with an open mind rather than looking to confirm their assumptions.
Durham also states the evidence establishes that Sussmann “carried out his September 19, 2016, meeting with the FBI in order to, among other things, further the interests of the Clinton campaign with assistance from” Fusion GPS.
In the filing, Durham also points to notes from a former FBI assistant director that state, among other things, that “the dossier’s author was hired” by Fusion GPS to “dig up dirt on Trump for an unnamed U.S. client.”
“The fact that FBI headquarters received on the same date both sets of information involving the same political campaign (Clinton campaign), the same law firm [Perkins Coie] and the same investigative firm [Fusion GPS] makes Steele’s involvement in these matters relevant,” Durham wrote. —FoxNews
An anonymous writer who goes by the online name TechnoFog has been leading the charge on the Crossfire Hurricane scandal from Day One. He has some thoughts on what’s going on here that were sent out in his email blast.
Dagon being granted immunity is certainly important, as Durham states that Rodney Joffe – who led the Alfa Bank hoax effort – remains a “subject” of the investigation. While Sussmann and others argue that it’s impossible to prosecute Joffe because of the 5-year statute of limitations, Durham disagrees, stating: “defense counsel is not – and could not be – aware of all the evidence that the Government has collected and continues to collect, or the possible violations of law it is investigating.”
Durham will also be granting immunity at trial “for an individual who was employed at” Fusion GPS. I initially suspected this was Christopher Steele but was steered in the right direction after some smart folks noted the person was “employed” at Fusion GPS (as opposed to Steele, who was “retained” by Fusion GPS). This person might be Laura Seago.
…Finally, I leave you with some questions to consider. Start asking why
Durham[He more likely meant to write ‘Sussman’ here] and Joffe were so desperate to provide the FBI and CIA with dirt purportedly linking Trump and Russia. Sussmann himself provided false statements to federal officials, and it’s becoming more and more likely that someone potentially fabricated this evidence. Sussmann and Joffe risked charges – and thus jeopardized their lucrative careers – to tie Trump to Russia.
Considering the personal costs to both men, are we to believe that this was only about politics?
Or maybe this all leads back to the DNC hack… —Technofog
In a follow-up article he asked an even more pressing question:
The scandal we are seeing come to light just isn’t about Hillary and Joffe and Sussmann. It’s not limited to Fusion GPS, FISA abuse, or Igor Danchenko.
It’s also about the willingness of U.S. intelligence to target the President. And on that topic, the CIA has some serious questions to answer. —TechnoFog
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
