Clinton Campaign Attorney Indicted For Lying To FBI In Trump-Russia Investigation

Published

Hillary Clinton

An attorney who represented Hillary Clinton’s most recent failed presidential campaign in 2016 was indicted on Thursday for allegedly lying to FBI officials, as part of U.S. Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into the origins of the FBI’s investigation of supposed ties between Russia and former President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Michael Sussmann, a partner with Perkins Coie who also represented the Democratic National Committee in connection with Russia’s hack of the organization, is accused of making false statements during a Sept. 19, 2016 meeting with former FBI General Counsel James Baker,” Reuters reported. “This marks the second criminal case Durham has filed so far since former Attorney General William Barr tapped him in 2019 to investigate U.S. officials who probed the Trump-Russia contacts.”

According to the New York Times, Biden administration Attorney General Merrick B. Garland has the authority to overrule Durham but declined to.
“Donald J. Trump and his supporters have long accused Democrats and Perkins Coie — whose political law group, a division separate from Mr. Sussmann’s, represented the party and the Hillary Clinton campaign — of seeking to stoke unfair suspicions about Mr. Trump’s purported ties to Russia,” the New York Times
reported. “The case against Mr. Sussmann centers on the question of who his client was when he conveyed certain suspicions about Mr. Trump and Russia to the F.B.I. in September 2016. Among other things, investigators have examined whether Mr. Sussmann was secretly working for the Clinton campaign — which he denies.”

“According to the indictment, Sussmann ‘lied about the capacity in which he was providing the allegations to the FBI’ when he met one-on-one with FBI General Counsel James Baker,” the Daily Mail explained. “That prompted to Baker to assume he was acting merely as a ‘good citizen’ rather than as a ‘paid advocate or political operative.’ He stated falsely that he was not doing the work ‘for my client,’ according to the indictment. Sussmann had handed over three ‘white papers’ as well as computer files containing evidence of the reported secret channel.”

    If it has to do with anyone named Clinton, you can bet it’s filled with lies, sleaze and political ‘dirty tricks’. Clinton (with the help of Obama and Biden) created the ‘Russian Hoax’ as a diversion (aka: a classic Democrat ‘bait and switch’) from Hillary’s e-mail scandal in those final months leading up to the 2016 election. It’s refreshing to know that those conspirators are finally being brought to justice although everyone knows they’ll never touch Clinton herself, or Obama, or Biden, or Comey, or anyone else that knew about the bogus Steele dossier.

Former Airspace Exec Accuses New Mexico’s Dem Governor, Appointees of ‘Serial Lawbreaking’

New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, as well as many of her political appointees, are being accused of serial lawbreaking. Zach DeGregorio, former Chief Financial Officer of Spaceport America has claimed among other things, that one appointee Alicia Keyes, “encouraged him to falsify an economic impact study” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Keyes also “mishandled a bond refinancing for the purpose of defrauding the state” he alleged. DeGregorio says when he attempted to report the wrongdoing, he was threatened with investigations and a firing. Specifically, DeGregorio believes he was retaliated against after filing the whistleblower complaint.

The complaint is nothing to be taken lightly. Along with defrauding the state, the lawsuit states Spaceport America’s chief client, Virgin Galactic, and its CEO, Richard Branson, had bribed Governor Lujan Grisham in exchange for “essential business” status during COVID-19 shutdowns.

DCNF reports:

The governor’s office met with Virgin Galactic shortly before Grisham “ma[d]e changes to the NM Spaceport Authority board,” “ma[d]e staffing changes at the NM Spaceport Authority,” and “made operational changes at the NM Spaceport Authority that benefited Virgin Galactic at the expense of other customers and the NM taxpayers,” according to the lawsuit.

DeGregorio is requesting $200 million for loss of future earning capacity, emotional distress and back pay. He resigned from his position in June 2020, “shortly after he filed a complaint alleging that Spaceport America Executive Director Daniel Hicks violated several state laws, which led to “possible waste and abuse of taxpayer funds.”

“In the lawsuit, DeGregorio adds that Hicks attempted to break into his email account and accessed emails DeGregorio sent to Keyes about Hicks’ involvement in alleged procurement fraud.”

14-Year-Old Gang Member Faces Attempted Murder Charge for Shooting LAPD Juvenile Division Detective

LAPD

Violence in American cities is at an all-time high, and in Los Angeles, a 14-year-old gang member faces an attempted murder charge. On Thursday a Los Angeles Police Department detective was on his way to work in South LA around 5:00 am when he was fortunate enough to only be grazed by a bullet in the back of his head.

The detective was reportedly in his personal vehicle along South Central Avenue when suddenly his windows were shattered and he felt the pain of the bullet. He drove himself to the Los Angeles Fire Department Station No. 14 across from the police station.

Enhancing the already tragic situation is that the suspect is a young boy. “Following the shooting, another police officer saw someone running in the area. LAPD officers later located the young suspect nearby on East 28th Street and Naomi Ave. He was in possession of a firearm and is a known gang member, LAPD said.”

Investigators are trying to determine if the suspect purposefully targeted the detective who works in LAPD’s Juvenile Division. The detective was not wearing his uniform, nor was he in his patrol vehicle at the time of the shooting, reports Fox LA.

“LAPD Assistant Chief Robert Marino said in a press briefing that the detective ran outside his vehicle where firefighters provided medical aid and were able to stabilize him before he was taken to LAC + USC Medical Center” adds Fox LA.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore said on social media, “Grateful our officer will survive this unprovoked attack. Just spoke with him by phone. Our Robbery-Homicide detectives have investigated and I’m confident they will identify the individuals responsible. Too many guns in too many hands.”
