“A court filing by John Durham from earlier in February regarding a motion to inquire about possible conflicts of interest in the Michael Sussmann case presents some interesting insights into the Durham probe,” reports have stated.
This is definitely going to be interesting, since it’s going to allow a deeper investigation and insights, going back to the aftermath of the 2016 elections.
“Back in September of 2021, Sussmann was indicted for allegedly giving false a statement to former FBI General Counsel James Baker back in 2016 during the lead-up to the election,” reports have informed.
In short, Sussmann had handed over some “white papers” coupled with data files that purported contained evidence to promote the “Alfa Bank/Trump Organization hoax.”
Per the charging document, during that September 2016 meeting with the FBI, Sussmann had “stated falsely that he was not doing his work on the aforementioned allegations ‘for any client,’ which led the FBI General Counsel to understand Sussmann was acting as a good citizen merely passing along information, not as a paid advocate or political operative.”
Obviously, Sussmann was later found to be acting on the behalf of numerous clients – including the Clinton campaign.
And that’s why the charges have been filed this last September.
“As set forth in further detail below, it is possible that conflicts of interest could arise from the fact that Latham and/or its employees (i) previously represented others in the Special Counsel’s investigation whose interests may conflict with those of the defendant, (ii) previously represented the defendant and his prior employer in connection with events that likely will be relevant at trial or at any sentencing, and (iii) maintained professional and/or personal relationships with individuals who could be witnesses in these proceedings.”
