The hits keep coming for the Patriots, just in time as people really had been giving in to the frustration that the ‘Swamp-y” creatures who have ruled Washington DC for so long were going to get off without so much as a rebuke for their highly corrupted actions over the last five years.
A federal judge has given Special Counsel John Durham another victory. It really feels like momentum is building, leading to at least Hillary Clinton being exposed for her involvement in what is now known as the Russiagate hoax.
“U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper ruled that GPS Fusion, the research firm Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign hired to dig up dirt on Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, must turn over nearly two dozen emails to Durham’s team, and those emails will no doubt lead to major bombshells,” Martin Walsh reported for Conservative Brief.
Clinton and her associates have been desperately trying to avoid scrutinizing Clinton’s electronic activity for the entire purpose as she was serving as Secretary of State and while she was the Democrat Presidential candidate for the 2020 election.
“Those emails – which are largely exchanges between Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman and Fusion GPS – are part of a batch that prosecutors subpoenaed last year. U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper blocked prosecutors from getting 16 of those emails but allowed Durham to obtain 22,” Fox News reported.
And we know the investigation into Michael Sussman has been a watershed for Durham and those who want to see some justice in the United States over corrupt politicians.
Durham indicted Sussman, a prominent lawyer who worked for the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Sussmann was indicted for allegedly lying to FBI lawyer James Baker during a 2016 meeting about who he was representing when he gave the bureau information about Donald Trump and Russia.
“Cooper ruled that the 16 emails in question were protected by attorney-client privilege and attorney-work-product while the remaining 22 were not. Still, the judge ruled that those emails will not be admissible in the impending trial of Sussman – who is charged with lying to the FBI during a September 2016 meeting – because of the untimeliness of Durham’s request” the Fox News report added.
Recently the court drama turned to Sussmann’s legal team has been fighting Durham over his efforts to secure a number of documents from Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, which they have claimed are protected by the attorney-client privilege.
However, that is not working out well for them.
Durham has been arguing that the campaign could not hide materials based on that claim- because the materials being hidden – have already been widely distributed to third parties. Remember that the media has already been involved here and seen the same information that Durham seeks.
And now- a federal judge in Washington, D.C., sided with Durham and has ordered the former campaign to produce the documents requested by the special counsel.
This could be a devastating blow to the swamp because the emails are expected to expose who knew what- and when, leading to who was covering up what details to perpetuate their hoax on the American people about a Presidential candidate and then a sitting US president.
“UPDATE – Durham won the first part of the fight. Durham’s motion to compel has been granted. “Privileged” Fusion GPS e-mails/docs will be provided to the court for in camera review. The court will then determine whether the “privileges” apply. (Durham will get the docs.),” the Techno Fog Twitter account noted in a post containing screengrabs of the judge’s ruling.

Techno Fog reported In mid-April, the account noted in relation to the “Steele Dossier,” “Fusion GPS poisoned the public with deceitful ‘opposition research’ And now, to keep documents from Durham, the Clinton Campaign tells the court Fusion GPS was providing ‘legal advice’ The lies are catching up to them.”

According to the Washington Examiner earlier this week, Durham’s efforts to get a judge to look at documents shielded by attorney-client privilege claims from Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee were ramping up:
The prosecutor submitted a filing in federal court Monday pointing to a Federal Election Commission ruling that fined those Democrats for violating rules with the funding of research that became a central part of the effort to accuse Clinton’s rival, Donald Trump, of collusion with Russia.
The submission is part of the case against Michael Sussmann, a lawyer who was indicted in September for allegedly concealing his clients — Clinton’s campaign and “Tech Executive-1,” Rodney Joffe — from FBI general counsel James Baker in September 2016 when he presented internet data that suggested a now-discredited back channel link between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa-Bank. Sussmann has pleaded not guilty.
Durham’s motion attached recently public FEC filings, including the FEC’s “conciliation agreement” with the DNC and Hillary for America. The FEC found “probable cause to believe” the Clinton campaign and the DNC improperly reported their payments to Perkins Coie for Fusion GPS’s opposition research as “legal and compliance consulting,” the special counsel said.
He went on to note that evidence presented at Sussmann’s trial, which is set to begin this month, will indicate that in late July 2016, the Clinton attorney, along with Joffe and “agents of the Clinton campaign” were “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.
