On Friday, Special Counsel John Durham, who was appointed by then-attorney general William Barr to investigate the Mueller investigation, released a filing that stated that the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers in Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign and later in the White House.
This was carried out by the Clinton campaign in order to craft a “narrative” around President Trump that would link him to Russia.
The filing was focused on Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman who was charged with making a false statement to a federal employee in 2016 by the Durham probe.
According to Fox News, the indictment against Sussman centered around statements given to then FBI General Counsel James Baker in September 2016 that he was not doing work “for any client” while he “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communications channel” between the Trump Organization and the Kremlin-tied Alfa Bank.
Despite Sussman claiming that he had no clients at the time, “billing records reflect” that he “reportedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations.”
Sussman “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign.”
In response to the filing, former President Donald Trump said in a statement that “The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia. This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution.”
The filing continues by stating that Sussman, a law firm that worked on behalf of the Clinton campaign, and numerous cyber researchers worked with a tech executive in July 2016 to “assemble the purported data and white papers.”
From this effort, the filing states that the tech executive and the cyber researchers based out of a US-based university were tasked “to mine internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia.”

The Durham filing continues by stating that the tech executive was “seeking to please certain ‘VIPs,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”
The Durham probe further stated that Sussman and his researchers exploited internet traffic related to “(i) a particular healthcare provider, (ii) Trump Tower, (iii) Donald Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and (iv) the Executive Office of the President of the United States (EOP).”
With these explosive findings by the Durham probe, it is becoming increasingly clear that President Trump’s many accusations against the Clinton campaign are finally coming to light and the attempted linkage to Russia by the Clinton campaign was orchestrated from the beginning.
