On the Special Counsel’s Weird Prosecution of Michael Sussmann

But now Durham has spoken on his own. He has indicted a cybersecurity lawyer named Michael Sussmann for allegedly making a single false statement in a conversation in 2016 with then-FBI General Counsel Jim Baker. The allegedly false statement concerned not Trump or Russia, but whom Sussmann represented when he brought Baker some information about an alleged electronic connection between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank. (Disclosure: Baker is a personal friend and former colleague at Brookings and Lawfare.)

The indictment is, in other words, far removed from the grave FBI misconduct Durham was supposed to reveal. Very far removed. In fact, it doesn’t describe FBI malfeasance against Trump at all, but portrays the FBI as the victim of agitprop brought to it by outside political operatives. It describes the FBI as diligently running down the leads it had been fed by these operatives and then, well, dropping the matter when it learned they had no merit. The misconduct it portrays is an alleged lie by Sussmann that is, at best, wholly peripheral to the substance of the allegations Durham was supposedly peddling.

Ahhhhhhh, okay, not really. Like almost everything in Trumpworld the investigation is a fraud. One of the last vestiges of Billy the Bagman's handy work. A shining testament to the steaming pile of horseshit comprised of the baseless allegations made against the FBI in pursuit of justifying Dear Leader's grievance. Another example of the epic corruption and abuses of power Trump demanded and Barr facilitated.

The evidence presented to get the FISA warrant was BULLSHIT.....PERIOD.

Therefore all the spying was illegal.

It is not that complicated.

The IG complained about the "process" to obtain the FISA warrants. Not the actual "reasons" for the FISA warrants.
The FISA warrants were necessary and valid because Trump and his associates posed a national security risk.

It's not that complicated.

The evidence presented to get the FISA warrant should have been VERIFIED as 100% accurate.

IT WAS NOT.

WHERE IS THE PEE PEE TAPE?
As far as I've seen, large portions of the Steele Dossier has been verified as accurate.
Ask Putin where the Pee Pee tape is. I'm sure someone Captured and Killed it. :)

Did you also “see” hands up don’t shoot, an insurrection and boarder patrol whipping black people?

LOL. Well, we've had over four years of fraudulent investigations, up to and including a supposed insurrection where not one person has been charged with insurrection. Also in the news recently, a peaceful protester agreed to a plea deal for stealing a beer out of Pelosi's mini fridge. I tremble at thinking what might have been if he had taken two beers.

The voter fraud circle jerk parade is marching in to TX.


Since Texas uses a lot of paperless electronic voting machines, and a hand recount of the ballots to verify the vote totals is impossible, shouldn't all of EC votes from Texas be tossed out?

Democrats have been abusing their power for at least four years.

They only regained power in the House in 2019. They didn't gain power in Senate until this year.

But, I guess being a victim it just seems like forever huh?

Democrats in general. For instance, New York state level Democrats have abused their power from day one.

WOW !

Another fake scandal up in smoke...

Trumpers are so gullible and they will believe any lie they are told. Every single one of their scandals is fake news. None have been true.

Meanwhile we just found out there was no election fraud at all, and Trump was lying again.

The GOP is total trash, a total joke.
