Durham filed a petition on Friday in the case of Michael Sussmannwho is indicted by a grand jury last year for making false statements to the FBI. The move is filled with technical language about Sussmann’s access to non-public information on internet servers at Trump Tower and the White House in 2016 and 2017, through a publicly disclosed technology executive. to be Rodney Joffe.

Sussmann is said to have provided the FBI information that forced Trump to go to Russia. While doing so, he said he was not working on behalf of “any client,” according to the offer. But Durham said that Sussmann was paying for the Clinton campaign at the time.

Hewitt suppressed that story by claiming that the media overstated what was moving.

Urgent report host Bret Baier asked prominent conservatives to weigh in on the story, noting that Clinton had previously “laughed off” Durham’s filing in a speech earlier in the day.

“Well, I agree that the media has put out too many of these records,” Hewitt said. “I think I said two nights ago, we don’t know yet, because Sussmann can go John Dean or he can go Gordon Liddy.”

The radio host concluded, “Nobody knew anything” about the prosecution until the prosecution brought up his indictment. “
