John Durham Claims Sussmann Also Lied To The C.I.A…


It’s bad enough to lie to the F.B.I., but to tell similar lies to the C.I.A?

Testimony from an ex-agent alleges that Michael Sussmann misrepresented his intentions and the fact that he was representing a high-profile client’s interests to the C.I.A…

These allegations are similar to those John Durham cites relating to Sussmann’s initial approach toward the F.B.I in 2016.

Michael Sussmann should have known better, it baffles me that an elite lawyer thought that he would get away with tellings lies to the most sophisticated intelligence operation in the world…

Sure, the C.I.A. did not like President Trump—many in the security state have a known vendetta against the man, but the agency keeps detailed records on everything. They’re an intelligence agency!

Why would any sane person interact with these people, and expect that evidence of their actions would not eventually surface, or potentially be used against them at a later date?

Was the climate surrounding the deep state apparatus so bad in 2016 that high-ranking lawyers, politicians, and bureaucrats actually thought that they would get away with this indefinitely?

Here is the latest allegation against Sussmann:

The New York Post claims:

One ex-spy — identified in court only as “Kevin P.” — recalled that he and a colleague met with Sussmann at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., in February 2017, shortly after Trump took office.

Sussmann gave the men two thumb drives that he said came from unidentified “contacts” and showed a secret, cyber back channel between a Trump Organization server and Russia’s Alfa Bank, Kevin P. said


Washington Examiner explains:

A senior officer in counterintelligence missions at the time, Kevin P. said Sussmann told him other lawyers at Perkins Coie represented Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, but “he made it clear that he did not have any connection with that.”

He noted that “he had contacts that provided him the information” related to the Alfa Bank allegations, as well as what the CIA veteran referred to as “secondary information” on “another technical security threat.
