Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign paid a technology company linked to university researchers to spy on then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign and private communications. . Moreover, that espionage continued when Trump became president, even going so far as to hack his communications systems in the White House.
Special Counsel John Durham highlighted these findings in a motion to probe potential conflicts of interest with attorney Michael Sussmann, who worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
“As stated in indictment, on September 19, 2016 – less than two months before the 2016 US Presidential election – the respondent, an attorney at a large international law firm (‘Law Firm 1’) was at the time working adviser to the Clinton Campaign, met with the FBI’s General Counsel at FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC,” the fact sheet of the indictment states. “The defendant provided the FBI General Counsel with purported data and a ‘white paper’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communication channel between the Trump Organization and a bank based in Russia (‘Bank of America’). Russia-1′).”
This is referring to declare political smear that Donald Trump has a secret banking line with a Moscow bank linked to Putin called Alfa Bank. Clinton’s attorney, Michael Sussmann, used false accusations to argue that the federal government should conduct surveillance of Trump’s campaign. Sussmann even peddling this baseless accusation against the FBI and the Central Intelligence Agency.
“The indictment alleges that defendant lied during that meeting, lying to the General Counsel that he did not provide charges to the FBI on behalf of any client,” the indictment continued. “In fact, defendant gathered and forwarded charges on behalf of at least two specific clients to the FBI, including (i) a technology executive (‘Tech Executive-1’) at a US-based Internet company (‘Internet Company -1’), and (ii) the Clinton Campaign. “
As a result, Sussmann lied to the FBI about his work for the Clinton campaign, as well as his relationship with a tech executive that was exposed. determined as Rodney Joffe, Neustar’s senior vice president.
Joffe brought the alleged discovery of Alfa Bank to Sussmann in early July 2016; both are in contact with former attorney Perkins Coie and Clinton campaign general counsel Marc Elias. Sussmann’s allegation that Trump had a clandestine connection to Alfa Bank was echoed during a September 2016 meeting with former FBI General Counsel James Baker.
The FBI will launch a investigation into Trump’s campaign to look at the “odd” connection to Alfa Bank. Hillary Clinton even weaponized political misinformation in an October 2016 tweet.
Alfa Bank’s allegations are said to be supported by research conducted by “Researcher 1” Manos Antonakakis, a computer scientist at Georgia Tech, “Researcher-2” David Dagon, a computer scientist. data scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology and “Initiator-1” April Lorenzen, principal data scientist at information services company Zetalytics.
Durham’s indictment makes the explosive claim that illegal spying on Trump’s communications continued even while he was in the White House.
The indictment also alleges that, beginning around July 2016, Tech Executive-1 worked with defendant, a U.S. investigative firm held by Law Firm-1 on behalf of the Clinton Campaign. , many network researchers and employees at many Internet companies. for purposeful data collection and white papers,” the new motion by Durham states. “In connection with these efforts, Tech Executive-1 exploited its access to non-public and/or proprietary Internet data. Tech Executive-1 has also enlisted the support of researchers at a US-based university who are receiving and analyzing large amounts of Internet data related to a cybersecurity research contract. of the federal government is pending. Tech Executive-1 tasked these researchers with mining Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ that bound then-candidate Trump to Russia. “
“In doing so, Tech Executive-1 indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPs’, referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton Campaign,” the motion for know more.
“Government evidence at trial will also demonstrate that among the Internet data that Tech Executive-1 and his associates were systematically exploiting domain names (“DNS”) related Internet traffic to (i) a specific healthcare provider, (ii) Trump Tower, (iii) Donald Trump’s Central Park West Apartment Building, and (iv) the Executive Office of the President of the United States (“EOP”), “movement continues. “(Tech Executive-1’s employer, Internet Company-1, accessed and maintained EOP-specific servers as part of a sensitive agreement under which it provided resolution services.) DNS for EOP Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited this deal by mining EOP DNS traffic and other data to collect derogatory information about Donald Trump. )”
