The truth about the biggest political crime in American history is coming into focus.
Hillary Clinton never thought this day would arrive.
And now this courtroom smoking gun was devastating news for Hillary Clinton.
Special counsel John Durham dropped bombshell court filings that made it clear Durham was pursuing an expansive investigation into the origin of the Russian collusion hoax.
Durham indicted Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI during a 2016 meeting where Sussmann pitched the FBI on the deranged conspiracy theory that a server at Trump Tower communicated with the Kremlin-linked Alfa Bank.
Sussmann allegedly falsely told FBI agents he was not working on behalf of a client when – in fact – text messages and billing records led Durham to charge that Sussmann was talking to the FBI in his capacity as an agent of the Clinton campaign.
But this is no mere process crime.
CNN reported that the court filings preview Durham’s intent to show an expansive effort by the Clinton campaign and its allies to frame Donald Trump for colluding with Russian intelligence during the 2016 campaign.
Sussmann was charged with lying in regard to a September 2016 meeting with a senior FBI official, where he provided a tip about strange cyberactivity between the Trump Organization and a major Russian bank. Prosecutors say Sussmann falsely denied providing the tip on behalf of a client — and was really working for the Clinton campaign at the time. He has pleaded not guilty.
The new filings on Monday suggest that instead of narrowly focusing on Sussmann’s alleged lie and the specific meeting where it allegedly occurred, Durham plans to describe at the trial how the Clinton campaign tried to dig up dirt about then-candidate Donald Trump and his ties to Russia.
Attorneys for Sussmann want the judge to block Durham from introducing evidence about the dossier at trial and to stop prosecutors from calling Steele as a witness at the trial next month.
Durham’s court filing described a “joint venture or conspiracy” between the Clinton campaign, its researchers and agents to concoct the Russian collusion hoax.
Donald Trump and his supporters spent years waiting for the “Durham report” which many conservatives hoped would outline the conspiracy to bring down the Trump presidency using a lie conjured up by Democrats.
The Sussmann indictment now looks like a “speaking indictment” where Durham intends to lay out the basics of his report through court filings outlining Durham’s findings.
Trump and his supporters expected more indictments out of the Durham investigation.
In addition to Sussmann, Durham charged researcher Igor Danchenko for lying to the FBI about where he obtained the so-called “intelligence” that ended up in the Steele dossier.
There is still a chance Durham could bring additional criminal charges.
But what is clear is that Durham will present a case that is damning for the Clinton campaign.
And that will only increase the pressure on if Hillary Clinton knew about this scheme to subvert American democracy.
