Durham Bombshell: ‘Smoking Gun’ Suggests Dems Were In ‘Joint Venture’ To Smear Trump

(Liberty Bell) – With all of the talk about the indictment of former President Donald Trump and the constant failures and gaffes coming out of the Biden administration, we all seem to have forgotten about the investigation being conducted by Special Counsel John Durham. Well, new reports have divulged that Durham is revealing smoking gun evidence, which consists of a text message, that shows a Clinton campaign lawyer lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Durham is now ready to show the effort to smear Trump with the debunked Russia collusion allegations was a “conspiracy.”

John Solomon of Just the News wrote, “In a bombshell court filing late Monday night, Durham for the first time suggested Hillary Clinton’s campaign, her researchers and others formed a ‘joint venture or conspiracy’ for the purpose of weaving the collusion story to harm Trump’s election chances and then the start of his presidency.”

“These parties acted as ‘joint venturer[s]’ and therefore should be ‘considered as co-conspirator[s],'” he went on to write concerning the investigation.

“Durham also revealed he has unearthed a text message showing Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann falsely told the FBI he was not working on behalf of any client when he delivered now-discredited anti-Trump research in the lead-up to the 2016 election. In fact, he was working for the Clinton campaign and another client, prosecutors say,” Solomon continued in his piece.

“The existence of the text message between Sussmann and then-FBI General Counsel James Baker was revealed in a court filing late Monday night by Durham’s team. Prosecutors said they intend to show Sussmann gave a false story to the FBI but then told the truth about working on behalf of the Clinton campaign when he later testified to Congress,” he added.

“Jim – it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss,” Sussmann commented in a text message to Baker on Sept. 18, 2016, according to the new court filing. “Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own – not on behalf of a client or company – want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”

Prosecutors have shown that the text will now become essential evidence at a trial to demonstrate that Sussmann told a whopper to the FBI. If you are interested in reading the court filing, you can find it here.

“The defendant lied in that meeting, falsely stating to the General Counsel that he was not providing the allegations to the FBI on behalf of any client,” the motion filed by Durham stated. “In fact, the defendant had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including (i) a technology executive (“Tech Executive-1”) at a U.S.-based Internet company (“Internet Company-1″), and (ii) the Clinton Campaign.”

The prosecutor then pointed out that in House testimony delivered by Sussmann a year later, he admitted that he approached the FBI after being instructed to do so by his client.

“We had a conversation, as lawyers do with their clients, about client 1 needs and objectives and the best course to take for a client,” Sussmann remarked in his testimony delivered in a deposition taken by then-House Intelligence Committee Republican investigative counsel Kash Patel. “And so it may have been a decision that we came to together. I mean, I don’t want to imply that I was sort of directed to do something against my better judgment, or that we were in any sort of conflict.”

Durham then informed the court he currently has plans to present the evidence that Sussmann worked in cahoots with the Clinton Campaign, tech executive Rodney Joffe, identified as Tech Executive-1, and several others in what he called a “joint venture” to push a now debunked narrative that Donald Trump had a secret computer channel at the Moscow-based Alfa Bank in order to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

“As an initial matter, the Government expects that the evidence at trial will show that beginning in late July/early August 2016, the defendant, Tech Executive-1, and agents of the Clinton Campaign were ‘acting in concert toward a common goal,’ … namely, the goal of assembling and disseminating the Russian Bank-1 allegations and other derogatory information about Trump and his associates to the media and the U.S. government,” Durham’s team explained.

“The evidence of a joint venture or conspiracy will establish,” the prosecutors declared, adding, “that in November 2016, soon after the Presidential election, Tech Executive-1 emailed a colleague, stating, “I was tentatively offered the top [cybersecurity] job by the Democrats when it looked like they’d win.'”

“In sum,” the special counsel noted, wrapping things up, “the above evidence, public information, and expected testimony clearly establishes by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant and Tech Executive-1 worked in concert with each other and with agents of the Clinton Campaign to research and disseminate the Russian Bank-1 allegations.”

Patel, one of the main individuals who help to uncover the false collusion narrative along with former Congressman Devin Nunes, stated that the new filing by Durham is probably one of the most important in the investigation up to this point.

“Durham has just shown the whole world what major pieces of our Russiagate investigation revealed,” Patel asserted. “Hard evidence, emails and text messages, showing the Clinton Campaign, Fusion GPS, Perkins Coie, Joffe, and the media were all synced in August of 2016 pushing the false Alfa Bank server story, while also all working on the Steele Dossier matter. Durham submits all this evidence as ‘joint venture conspiracy’ under the rules of evidence.”
