Durham reveals CIA determined Trump-Russia link to be ‘not technically possible,’ ‘user created’

Special Counsel John Durham, the former U.S. attorney who is investigating the origins of the Russia Collusion Hoax, just filed his latest court document in the case against Michael Sussmann, the Clinton-linked lawyer.

Fox News reports that in the filing, Durham states that the CIA had concluded that the information provided to it by Sussmann, alleging a link between Donald Trump and a Russian-linked bank, was “not technically possible,” and even “user created.” 

Background

Sussmann has been charged with lying to the FBI.

The allegation stems from a meeting that he had with the FBI in 2016. He convened that meeting to present “evidence” that he claimed linked Trump to the Russian Bank, Alfa Bank.

During that meeting, Sussmann was asked who he was working for. He claimed that he was not working for anyone, which is what has led to the lying charge. Durham alleges that Sussmann, at the time, was actually working for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign as well as a technology executive.

Sussmann has pleaded not guilty, and he maintains that he did not lie to the FBI. He recently attempted to get the case dismissed, but the judge has denied this request.

Now, with the trial about to commence next month, Sussmann’s legal team is fighting with Durham about what evidence will be admissible at trial.

The latest

Durham, this week, responded to the objections of Sussmann’s legal team. In the response, Durham states that he will “adduce evidence at trial” that will show that U.S. intelligence agencies, including the FBI and CIA, “concluded that the Russian Bank 1 allegations were untrue and unsupported.”

Durham writes:

For example, while the FBI did not reach an ultimate conclusion regarding the data’s accuracy or whether it might have been in whole or in part genuine, spoofed, altered, or fabricated, Agency 2 concluded in early 2017 that the Russian Bank 1 data and Russian Phone Provider 1 data was not ‘technically plausible,’ did not ‘withstand technical scrutiny,’ ‘contained gaps,’ ‘conflicted with [itself],’ and was ‘user created and not machine/tool generated.

Durham, here, is arguing why he believes it is necessary to present certain facts during the trial that Sussmann is trying to claim ought to be inadmissible.

Durham, in the filing, also links Sussmann to the infamous Steele Dossier, revealing that Sussmann, as a member of Perkins Coie, met with Steele, the ex-British spy, in the summer of 2016, which is when Steele claimed that there was a link between Trump and Alfa Bank.

This is shaping up to be a blockbuster case in which Durham may end up exposing many of the bad actors behind the Russian Collusion Hoax. This big question, though, is whether he will be able to bring any of them to justice.
