John Durham released a potential smoking gun in the case against Michael Sussmann on Monday night, as he published documents showing the Democratic cybersecurity lawyer messaged the FBI general counsel that he was not working on behalf of any client, when in fact he was working for the Clinton campaign.
Sussmann was indicted last September for allegedly concealing his clients — Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and “Tech Executive-1,” known to be former Neustar executive Rodney Joffe — from FBI general counsel James Baker when he pushed since-debunked claims of a secret back channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.
The article goes on to state the following:
The September 2021 indictment alleged Sussmann lied when he said he was not providing the allegations to the FBI on behalf of any client when he was in fact doing so on behalf of Joffe and the Clinton campaign. Last year, Sussmann’s lawyers attempted to argue there was no evidence that Sussmann lied to Baker.
Durham provided the “receipts” in a bombshell filing Monday night, revealing that Sussmann had sent a text message to Baker on Sept. 18, 2016 — the night before their meeting at the bureau.
The text reads:
“Jim – it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. Do you have availibilty [sic] for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own – not on behalf of a client or company – want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”
According to Durham, Baker will take the stand as a witness in the upcoming trial.
Sussman has pleaded not guilty and has denied doing anything wrong. His lawyers have asked that the false statement allegations against him be dismissed, claiming that even if he did lie by withholding the fact he was working for Hillary Clinton, it was “immaterial.”
Durham wasn’t buying that excuse, saying last month, “The defendant’s false statement to the FBI General Counsel was plainly material because it misled the General Counsel about, among other things, the critical fact that the defendant was disseminating highly explosive allegations about a then-Presidential candidate on behalf of two specific clients, one of which was the opposing Presidential campaign.”
“The defendant’s efforts to mislead the FBI in this manner during the height of a Presidential election season plainly could have influenced the FBI’s decision-making in any number of ways,” Durham said.
