Former GOP rep: Durham has discovered ‘incestuous relationship’ in Russiagate probe

Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) says that Special Counsel John Durham, in his investigation of the Russian Collusion Hoax, has found an “incestuous relationship” between Hillary Clinton’s people and the FBI, the Washington Examiner reports

Chaffetz made the claim over the weekend while guest-hosting the Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Features. But, before we get to that, let’s take a look at what Chaffetz was commenting on.

Russian Collusion Hoax update

Durham has charged Attorney Michael Sussmann with lying to the FBI. The charge stems from a meeting that took place between Sussmann and the FBI back in 2016. Sussmann called the meeting to present evidence of a link between Donald Trump and the Russia-linked Alfa Bank.

During that meeting, agents asked Sussmann who he was working for. Sussmann claimed that he was not working for anyone. Durham, though, says that he has proof that Sussmann was at least working for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and Rodney Joffe, the tech executive.

This is what led to the lying charge, a charge to which Sussmann has pled not guilty. Sussmann attempted to get the case dismissed, but the judge refused to allow it.

Now, Sussmann’s legal team and Durham’s team are fighting over what evidence ought to be admissible in the trial that is scheduled to commence next month.

In the latest court filing, which was made on Friday, Durham says that he has proof that the CIA had determined that the evidence presented by Sussmann to the FBI, of a link between Alfa Bank and Trump, was “not technically plausible” and even “user created.”

The “incestuous relationship”

It was Durham’s latest court filing that Chaffetz was talking about while hosting Sunday Morning Features. 

“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 said.

He continued:

But there’s other documentation and flow of money and logs and whatnot. 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.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), who appeared as a guest on the program, suggested that the case might not go to trial because those involved, including Clinton’s people, don’t want this “incestuous relationship” further exposed.

“I’m not sure that the Clinton campaign folks or the Democratic Party want to see this go to trial and air their dirty laundry even further,” Biggs said.
