CTH begins every outline of the ongoing Durham investigation with the following disclaimer: How is John Durham going to reveal everything that is possible about the deep state Trump targeting operation, and simultaneously handle the involvement of Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann and the Special Counsel team who were specifically appointed to cover it up?
The short answer is, Durham can’t. He’s not allowed to.
Durham can only outline the external participants in the corrupt activity of the U.S. government. No internal participants of government, legislative or executive, are allowed to be investigated.
In the latest court filings against Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, the prosecution drops some significant discoveries outlining how the external participants lied to willfully blind FBI officials. Technofog has all the details:
On September 19, 2016, DNC/Clinton Campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann met with FBI General Counsel James Baker, where Baker was provided with data and “white paper” purporting to show covert communications (since proven to be bogus) between Russian Alfa Bank and the Trump Organization.
Special Counsel John Durham has just provided evidence that the night before – on September 18, 2016 – Sussmann sent Baker this text:
As it turns out, Sussmann was billing the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Alfa Bank hoax. This text from Sussmann to Baker is damning for Sussmann’s case, proving Sussmann’s efforts at deceiving a top official at the FBI about his clients, and demonstrating how Sussmann tried to convince Baker he was there to supposedly do the right thing.

This 2016 meeting between Sussmann and FBI Counsel James Baker took place in the lead up to the FBI and DOJ filing for the FISA warrant against the Trump campaign through Carter Page in October. Sussmann has legal exposure for his lying to the FBI about the purposes of the manipulated information that came from Rodney Joffe (Tech Executive-1 in the Sussmann indictment). As Technofog notes, Joffe also has legal exposure, however, he has not yet been charged.
While Sussmann was pushing fraudulent information into the open hands of the FBI, another Clinton campaign contractor, Fusion GPS, was pushing similarly constructed fraudulent information -including the Christopher Steele dossier- into the media, DOJ (Bruce Ohr) and FBI.
At the same time (September 2016), CIA Director John Brennan was briefing Barack Obama about the intentions of the Clinton campaign, and feeding information to Gang of Eight member Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (now dead). Harry Reid was using his position in the Senate to weaponize the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence who became an active participant in the overall attacks against candidate Donald Trump.
After they failed to defeat Trump in the November 2016, election, all of the participants in the scheme shifted the focus of the Trump-Russia construct from defeating Trump to now removing Trump from office.
The SSCI retained their critical role as newly installed Vice-Chairman Mark Warner worked closely with the FBI to get a special counsel appointed. The Special Counsel, Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann, would then be used to take over the DOJ for two years and protect all of the participants.
During a period in February, March and April of 2017, the DOJ became less useful for the operations against Trump, as various DOJ officials from the Obama team exited Main Justice. The legislative branch, specifically the Senate Intelligence Committee, desperate to keep the attack against Trump in place, worked almost exclusively with the FBI team, Deputy Comey, Asst. Deputy McCabe and FBI Counsel James Baker during this phase.
It was during February and early March when FBI Director James Comey was falsely telling President Trump he was not under FBI investigation. However, despite Comey’s statements to Trump, the FBI Director would not make those statements public, because they were not true. Comey was manipulating Trump to retain the false premise underlying the investigation.
In early March 2017, the Democrats in the legislative branch were desperate to get a special counsel installed who would assist them in hiding all of the activity that took place prior. The collective effort was to flood the media with speculation, rumors and innuendo that Donald Trump was under FBI investigation. This collaborative effort between the SSCI, FBI and media would ultimately help the goal of getting a special counsel appointed.
On March 17, 2017, SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner asked the FBI for a copy of the FISA application used against the Trump campaign, with the intent to leak it to the media (James Wolfe to Ali Watkins).
Warner could not ask the DOJ, because by that time Jeff Sessions was in place (recused March 2nd), and Acting Deputy AG Dana Boente was not considered as strong for the SSCI/FBI intents of the Trump removal effort.
FBI Director James Comey was schedule to testify to the House Intelligence Committee on March 20, 2017, where he would make the first public statement about President Donald Trump being under an active investigation.
Mark Warner coordinated with FBI leadership (Comey, McCabe) to receive the FISA application, so that he could leak it to the media in support of a push for the special counsel appointment. The March 17th leak of the FISA application was timed to support the testimony by Comey a few days later on March 20th.
During this critical phase, Main Justice (Sessions, Boente, et al) was carved out of the political planning effort, and the SSCI worked directly with the FBI.
James Comey gave his testimony (3/20/17), SSCI Security Director James Wolfe did as he was told and leaked the FISA application (3/17/20), and with major stories of Trump now officially under investigation in the public – and all of the manipulated evidence (including an unredacted version of the FISA application) now in the media vaults for exploitation – the piranha pool was full of blood and the media frenzy began.
As soon as Rod Rosenstein was confirmed as Deputy AG (early April), and with Jeff Sessions purposefully recused from anything Trump-Russia, the FBI shifted slightly and began the pressure campaign toward Main Justice to appoint the special counsel. The SSCI and FBI worked together to generate additional leaks to the media to get Robert Mueller appointed.
All of that internal activity is what John Durham is not permitted to look at, or else his investigation will be shut down. Hence the disclaimer “How is John Durham going to reveal everything that is possible about the deep state Trump targeting operation, and simultaneously handle the involvement of Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann and the Special Counsel team who were specifically appointed to cover it up?” The short answer is, he won’t.
Bill Barr was the Bondo… John Durham is the spray paint.
The corrupt and weaponized DOJ, FBI and SSCI government institutions remain unfazed.
That’s the rub.
