    Cliff Notes Day 2 John Durham / Michael Sussman Trial



    Onto the witnesses. We start with the short testimony of Deborah Fine.

    Fine began working for the Hillary Clinton Campaign (aka Hillary for America) as “one of several deputy general counsels” in May 2016. She answered to Marc Elias, the campaign’s general counsel.

    After being presented with calendar entries confirming her daily calls with Fusion GPS, she testified that she worked with them as “part of my work for the campaign.” In fact, she regularly interacted with Glenn Simpson and co-founder Peter Fritsch. Fine conceded that Fusion GPS were seemingly free to conduct research on their own, stating she “personally didn’t direct them” to accomplish specific tasks.

    On cross, she admitted she didn’t now if Marc Elias spoke to anyone else at the Clinton Campaign about the activities of Fusion GPS. She was out of the loop regarding efforts to bring the Alfa Bank allegations to the NY Times or to the FBI.

    Testimony of Laura Seago

    Laura Seago worked with Fusion GPS back in 2016, where she reported directly to Fritsch and Simpson. She has been granted immunity by the Special Counsel for her testimony. She understood Marc Elias to be the Fusion GPS contact for the Clinton Campaign.

    Seago stated she was present at a summer 2016 meeting with “Mr. Elias, my colleague Peter Fritsch from Fusion GPS, Mr. Sussmann, and Mr. Sussmann’s client Rodney Joffe.” As to the nature of that meeting:

    “The general purpose, to the best of my recollection, was to discuss allegations of communications between the Trump organization and Alfa-Bank.”

    Once the Alfa Bank allegations were developed, Seago met with journalist Franklin Foer (who would write the October 31, 2016 Alfa Bank article in Slate). The purpose of that meeting was to discuss “the allegations of communication between the Trump Organization and Alfa-Bank.”



    They sold Foer on the Alfa Bank data at that meeting, telling him there were “highly credible computer scientists who seemed to think that these allegations were credible.” These “credible computer scientists” would ultimately be cited in Foer’s article. She admitted that Fusion GPS did nothing to validate the DNS records - something she said was “beyond my capabilities.”

    Seago was walked-through a number of e-mails she had with Joffe and other members of Fusion GPS. Some of these were privileged (the Joffe e-mails) so the Special Counsel was unable to discuss with Seago the contents. However, she did know about contents of the Joffe e-mails generally:



    Now we get to Marc Elias.

    Elias meet weekly with Fusion GPS at his office. Typically Peter Fritsch and Glenn Simpson would be in attendance. Generally, those meetings involved discussions of Elias’s “needs” and Fusion GPS’s “work” - which included what Elias described as the “unusual connections” the Trump Campaign had with Russia. They would also report to Elias on their findings related to Trump during the election.

    Notably, Elias mentioned Jake Sullivan as someone at the Clinton Campaign who knew about the Trump/Russia research (though there is uncertainty as to whether Sullivan knew about Fusion’s activities). Elias would give the campaign these updates.

    Day 2 Afternoon Session John Durham / Michael Sussman Trial

    The Special Counsel undoubtedly proved that that Sussmann was billing his time on the Alfa Bank work to the Clinton Campaign.



    Then there’s the infamous Slate article on the Alfa Bank/Trump connections. Sussmann told Elias that the Alfa Bank data had been provided to the media. And after the Slate article was published, Elias forwarded it to the campaign:





    After the witness and jury left, the Special Counsel informed the court that the next witnesses after Baker would be Bill Priestap, Trish Anderson, and Special Agent Gaynor.

    Day 3 John Durham / Michael Sussman Trial

    Today, it’s the morning testimony of former FBI general counsel James Baker. Yesterday we discussed how Sussmann reached out - not on behalf of a client - yo share the purported Alfa Bank/Trump data. Here he discusses what occurred during that fateful meeting in September 2016...





    As to whether Sussmann lied? Baker is “100% confident” he did...



    He (Baker) repeated what Sussmann said about not being there on behalf of a client to the FBIs Bill Priestap. Regarding why it was brought to Priestap’s attention, and why it was brought to Comey’s attention: "Because it involved Russia"



    After the Sussmann meeting, the FBI met with NY Times reporters to discuss the Potential Alfa Bank story. Sussmann had furthered his goal, it seems: for the FBI investigation to spur media interest in the story. After all, the data itself was insufficient.

    Day 3 (continued);John Durham / Michael Sussman Trial



    AND WITH THAT, reporters are being booted out, Out, OUT! of the media room. So, while this thread ends for the day, The Epoch Times coverage continues via my colleague Zack Stieber at https://theepochtimes.com.




    Who needs to spend millions on television commercials or Facebook ads if you’ve got friends in the FBI who can pull off a political dirty trick for you?

    Just look how cozy Hillary Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann and FBI general counsel James A. Baker are in text messages revealed in Thursday’s testimony at Sussmann’s trial.

    Can you meet tomorrow, Sussmann asks the high-ranking government official. “OK, I will find a time,” Baker answers. Does he need help getting into the building? No, Sussmann answers, I have a badge to get into the Federal Bureau of Investigation. How convenient.


    It was during this meeting that Sussmann peddled the false story that Donald Trump was secretly communicating with a Russian bank.

    Sussmann obviously is guilty of the crime of which special counsel John Durham accuses him, lying to the FBI, despite his claims otherwise. He specifically says to Baker that he’s not coming in “on behalf of any client or company” when he was working for *Clinton.


    But are we really to believe Baker didn’t know that Sussmann — a well-known Democratic lawyer who can drop by the FBI at the drop of a hat — was a *biased tipster? Worse, when Baker passes Sussmann’s story to FBI agents, he doesn’t tell them where it’s coming from, allowing the lawyer anonymity even as an investigation finds his tale is garbage.

    Durham is pursuing a narrow indictment, but what he’s exposing is far larger. An unethical Clinton campaign, a biased government bureaucracy, and an insouciant class of Beltway insiders who figured they could get away with anything.

    Day 4 Robby Mook Testifies in John Durham / Michael Sussman Trial



    Hillary Clinton APPROVED sharing debunked 'covert' communications between Trump and Kremlin-backed bank with press - even though she wasn't 'totally confident' in the legitimacy, ex-campaign manager tells Durham trial



    - Robby Mook testified on Friday about the campaign meeting on the data
    - He told the trial of Michael Sussman that he was first briefed about Alfa Bank by campaign general counsel Marc Elias
    - Mook also said he discussed the data with Jake Sullivan and John Podesta
    - He admitted the campaign wasn't 'totally confident' in the 'legitimacy of the data,' but was hoping a reporter could get it confirmed
    - Sussman is accused of lying to the FBI about the fact that he was representing Clinton's 2016 campaign interests and that of another client


    Hillary Clinton's former campaign manager Robby Mook told a court on Friday that she signed off on sharing debunked allegations linking Donald Trump and the Kremlin-backed Alfa Bank with the media in the run-up to the 2016 election.

    Mook told the trial of Michael Sussman, the first to be indicted by Special Counsel John Durham in his Russia origins probe, that he was first briefed about Alfa Bank by campaign general counsel Marc Elias.

    He said he also discussed it with then senior adviser Jake Sullivan - now the White House National Security Adviser- and campaign chairman John Podesta about whether to share the information with a reporter.

    'I discussed it with Hillary as well,' Mook told the court.

    He also admitted the campaign wasn't 'totally confident in the legitimacy of the data', but was hoping a reporter would follow it up and determine if it was 'accurate' or 'substantive.'

    'I don't remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter,' Mook said.

    They decided to share it with the reporter after the meeting, he testified.

    'I recall it being a member of our press staff,' Mook said. 'We authorized a staff member to share it with the media.'

    The court was also shown the infamous October 31, 2016, message from Hillary saying: 'Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank'





    She included a statement from Sullivan titled 'exposing Trump's Secret Line of Communication to Russia'.




    Sussman is accused of lying to the FBI about the fact that he was representing Clinton's 2016 campaign interests and that of another client - although the campaign says it never authorized Sussmanīs actions.

    James Baker was the FBI's general counsel in September 2016 when Sussmann scheduled a meeting to provide him with computer data that Sussmann said showed a potential secret communications channel between Alfa Bank and the Trump Organization.

    Sussmann is accused of lying to Baker during that meeting by saying he was not presenting the computer data on behalf of a particular client.

    Prosecutors allege Sussmann was not forthcoming about his Clinton ties because he assumed the FBI would consider the information less credible if it thought it was being presented with a partisan intent.

    The Sussmann prosecution was brought by John Durham, the prosecutor appointed as special counsel during the Trump administration to investigate potential government wrongdoing during the early days of the investigation into Russian election interference and potential ties with the Trump campaign.

    Defense lawyers have denied that Sussmann lied during the meeting and have suggested that it's impossible for prosecutors to prove exactly what he said because only Baker and Sussmann were in the meeting and neither of them took notes.

    James Baker testified that he remembers 100% that Sussman said he was not coming to the FBI on behalf of a client.
