A former House Republican says special counsel John Durham is finding evidence of an “incestuous relationship” behind the Russiagate scandal.
During his appearance on Sunday Morning Futures, Jason Chaffetz spoke with current members of Congress about the latest developments in the politically charged criminal investigation surrounding Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann.
In September 2016, according to Sussmann’s indictment by the FBI, he presented internet data indicating a now-debunked Trump-Russia link to FBI general counsel James Baker, concealing his clients, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and former Neustar executive Rodney Joffe. According to him, there was no wrongdoing and he pleaded not guilty.
“The allegation here is that Michael Sussmann got in with a meeting with the general counsel there at the Federal Bureau of Investigation by representing that he wasn’t representing anybody,” Chaffetz stated during an interview with Rep. Andy Biggs.
“But there’s other documentation and flow of money and logs and whatnot,” he continued. “That’s why this is a case that is important, because these people had this incestuous relationship to be able to actually go in and access things that other people that are on the receiving end of these — of these types of prosecutions don’t get to do.”
