DURHAM: ‘Smoking Gun’ Text Message That Implicates Hillary Clinton Campaign In ‘Conspiracy’

In a text message released Monday, Special Counsel John H. Durham revealed that Michael Sussmann, a lawyer for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, misled the FBI when he reported accusations about Donald Trump and Russia in 2016.

The text message is being called a “smoking gun” because it appears to be written proof of the allegations against Sussmann and the Clinton campaign. Durham’s filing also suggests that the Clinton campaign was involved in a “conspiracy.”

The filing (via Just the News) asks the court to include certain evidence against Sussmann, and to exclude other evidence that the defense insists must be part of the case. The text message complements claims that Sussmann lied to the FBI verbally.

As the filing notes (original emphasis):

“The defendant provided the FBI General Counsel with purported data and “white papers” that allegedly demonstrated a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and a Russia-based bank (“Russian Bank-1”). The Indictment alleges that 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.

Indeed, on September 18, 2016 at 7:24 p.m., i.e., the night before the defendant met with the General Counsel, the defendant conveyed the same lie in writing and sent the following text message to the General Counsel’s personal cellphone:

Jim – it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. 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. (emphasis added).

The FBI General Counsel responded: “Ok. I will find a time. What might work for you?” To which the defendant replied: “Any time but lunchtime – you name it.”

The defendant’s billing records reflect that the defendant repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations. In compiling and disseminating these allegations, the defendant and Tech Executive-1 also had met and communicated with another law partner at Law Firm-1 who was then serving as General Counsel to the Clinton Campaign (“Campaign Lawyer-1”).…

In his meeting with Agency-2 employees, the defendant also made a substantially similar false statement as he had made to the FBI General Counsel. In particular, the defendant asserted that he was not representing a particular client in conveying the above allegations. In truth and in fact, the defendant was continuing to represent at least Tech Executive-1– a fact the defendant subsequently acknowledged under oath in December 2017 testimony before Congress (without identifying the client by name).”

Durham also wants to admit into evidence a tweet from Hillary Clinton quoting Jake Sullivan in support of the hoax:
