“Russiagate In A Nutshell”: Glenn Greenwald Breaks Down Significance Of Expected Indictment Against Hillary Clinton Lawyer

Special counsel John Durham is reportedly seeking a grand jury indictment against to indict an attorney reportedly representing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign after he allegedly peddled a fake story in 2016 that the Trump campaign was using a secret server to communicate with a Russian bank – a lie promoted by Hillary Clinton herself.

According to the Washington Post, Michael Sussmann, a cybersecurity lawyer and partner at Perkins Coie, pushed the theory that computer scientists had discovered secret server connections between Trump and Alfa Bank – an allegation which was then amplified through left-wing media chambers as part of their ongoing full-court press against Trump.

The NYT reports that Durham – the special counsel appointed by former President Trump to scrutinize the FBI’s Russia investigation – will charge Sussmann with lying to the FBI.

The case against Mr. Sussmann centers on the question of who his client was when he conveyed certain suspicions about Mr. Trump and Russia to the F.B.I. in September 2016. Among other things, investigators have examined whether Mr. Sussmann was secretly working for the Clinton campaign — which he denies.

The accusation against Mr. Sussmann focuses on a meeting he had on Sept. 19, 2016, with James A. Baker, who was the F.B.I.’s top lawyer at the time, according to the people familiar with the matter. They spoke on condition of anonymity.

Because of a five-year statute of limitations for such cases, Mr. Durham has a deadline of this weekend to bring a charge over activity from that date.

At the meeting, Mr. Sussmann relayed data and analysis from cybersecurity researchers who thought that odd internet data might be evidence of a covert communications channel between computer servers associated with the Trump Organization and with Alfa Bank, a Kremlin-linked Russian financial institution. -NYT

Breaking down news of the indictment is journalist and attorney Glenn Greenwald.

The scam that Trump was using a secret server to communicate with a Russian bank was promoted by Hillary herself, and touted by media outlets led by @Slate. Like so much that comprised Russiagate, it was a total fraud concocted by the DNC & media allies:https://t.co/mwKa2REj5f

Remember that an FBI lawyer pled guilty to lying to the FISA court in order to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign official Carter Page.

The real criminals weren’t people colluding with Russia but those who perpetrated the Russiagate fraud:https://t.co/X0QgL5zdDj

Savage has done good and important reporting in the past but there’s probably no corporate journalist except Bob Woodward more linked to and intertwined with Democratic security state operatives, and that’s what happens when reporters become their tools:https://t.co/UCYaVwLnv1

And as attorney Nicholas Devyatkin notes, “Elias has completely reinvented himself as some voting rights advocate. See how MSNBC covers him without disclosing his very recent role as general counsel to the Clinton Campaign and his role in commissioning the Steele Dossier.”
