A former head of FBI intelligence says that the Clinton campaign “just made stuff up” about Donald Trump. I believe they knew they were heading for defeat and there is no place so low that she wouldn’t stoop to it to become president. She had hoped that she could smear him and no one would know they lied until after she won the election. And once she was in office, there would be no investigation.
Retired Assistant Director for Intelligence Kevin Brock is a vocal critic of the FBI and the way they handled the case. Brock appeared on “Just the News, Not Noise,” on Wednesday he said he did not like the way the FBI handled the investigation of collusion between Donald Trump and Alpha Bank. He says that John Durham has now proven that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign, not Trump’s, used “contrived disinformation” to mislead voters.
“This is more than just political dirty tricks. Political dirty tricks usually have some foundation in truth. But they just made stuff up.”
Durham and his team of prosecutors are putting the finishing touches on their case against Michael Sussmann, a Perkins Coie lawyer representing Hillary Clinton at the time. He went to James Baker, a lawyer for the FBI, and presented what he claimed was proof of a backchannel of communication between Trump and Alpha Bank existed. That has been completely debunked as a total lie.
Durham has released a trove of information about the origins of the Alfa Bank claims in recent court filings preparing for the Sussmann trial. One of Durham’s filings revealed that the CIA had examined what Sussmann presented to Baker and concluded that some of the information was not “technically plausible” and was “user created.” Prosecutors said in a filing:
“This is the way disinformation is really exposed, not by some contrived government agency, but by evidence presented in court that gets at the truth of what happened. What Durham is methodically doing, is laying out a case that the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat Party used contrived disinformation in a conspiracy, in a conspiratorial way, to deceive the American voter ahead of the election.”
“This is much more than an attorney for the Clinton campaign lying to the FBI. He is using this charge to expose a larger story, a larger narrative.”
