The Durham Situation Heats Up: What We Know so Far

Special Prosecutor John Durham, who has been conducting an air-tight investigation into the origins of the “Russian collusion” hoax for nearly 3 years now, has emerged from the shadows to issue his second indictment since the probe began. John Durham is perhaps one of the most enigmatic and elusive characters in the seemingly endless “Patriots vs Deep-State” waltz. Durham has been described as a “Low-profile professional” and the label seems to be spot on since there hasn’t been so much as a silent fart from the man in all this time. 

The investigation has been so quiet for so long that it has caused a great deal of skepticism among speculators and press folks alike as to whether or not anything will ever come of it, even causing former president Donald Trump to ask “Where’s John Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?” It’s certainly a stark contrast to DC establishment goons like Adam Schiff who has on many occasions intentionally leaked information to Big Media in an effort to drum up sensation, completely circumventing proper governmental processes. 

Durham’s first major indictment in over a year targets none other than Hillary Clinton lawyer Micheal Sussman, but before we open that can of worms let’s take a stroll down memory lane…

 Hillary Clinton, just days before the 2016 election, made several provocative claims about her opponent. Clinton tweeted out on Halloween night that Donald Trump had a “secret server” he used to communicate privately with the Putin-tied AlphaBank. Naturally, the press went buck wild with the hearsay as if it were an incontrovertible fact, giving the allegations wall-to-wall coverage. The witch hunt eventually fizzled out but the damage was done, even today there are still plenty of folks out there who believe the Russia collusion story is God’s honest truth despite the complete absence of evidence. Special counsel Robert Mueller probed and prodded for months only to eventually concede that he “did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple efforts from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.

Now we have the indictment of Micheal Sussman, a cybersecurity lawyer for the Obama/Clinton cabal’s go-to law firm, Perkins Coie. Sussman was indicted for lying to the FBI about the source of the information that he gave to the bureau regarding the AlphaBank claims, and for essentially sending them on a wild goose chase for political purposes. Sussman provided an FBI general counsel three whitepapers and several datafiles allegedly containing evidence of the existence of the purported “secret server”. During the meeting, Sussman lied about the capacity in which he was providing the allegations to the FBI, stating falsely that he was not doing it for any client (Clinton) as a political advocate or paid operative but rather as a “good citizen”, merely “passing along information”. Despite Sussman’s attempt to paint himself as some kind of hero, the indictment claims he was in fact working at the behest of one “US tech executive” (intrigued to learn who this could be in reference to) and Hillary Clinton. The indictment goes so far as to state that this nameless tech executive “exploited his access to non-public data to conduct opposition research concerning Trump”.

It’s been a little more than a week since the indictment and not much is known as to where things will go from here. Congressman Devin Nunes, who is a Ranking Member of the House Permanent Committee on Intelligence, recently laid out the situation to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo:

“We’ve made 14 criminal referrals to the Department of Justice. I expect every one of those to be looked into. For God’s sake, the American people, the taxpayers pay for us to do this work.  We don’t have guns here in Congress, we can’t go out and arrest people.  All we can do is do an exhaustive investigation which we’ve done despite being stonewalled by the Department of Justice. We’ve done our job, now we expect Durham to do his job, which I think he is doing…”
