Former Hillary staffer facing possible second indictment as Republicans call for his wife to recuse herself from the investigation

Sen. Josh Hawley has demanded that Attorney General Merrick Garland ban the wife of White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan from any role in special counsel John Durham’s probe. 

According The Washing Times, Sullivan’s wife, Maggie Goodlander is a counsel to Garland and because Sullivan was a foreign policy adviser for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, her affiliation with him constitutes a conflict of interest.

Durham alleged last weekend that there were those involved with the Clinton Campaign that exploited their access to former President Donald Trump’s internet traffic to bring up “derogatory information” about the presidential opponents.

Hawley called for Goodlander to recuse herself from the Durham probe into the origins of the FBI’s Trump-Russia collusion investigation saying, “The Clinton campaign’s criminal enterprise includes many individuals currently serving in the Biden administration — and in your personal office.”

“I am calling on you to set a clear example and instruct Ms. Goodlander, and all of your other employees potentially implicated in the Clinton campaign to formally recuse from the special counsel probe.”

To make the situation worse, according to DC Weekly, Sullivan was included in an indictment of Hillary Clinton’s attorney, Michael Sussman. The indicted DC insider is now the National Security Advisor for President Joe Biden and is the “foreign policy advisor” referred to in the Sussmann indictment.

Fox News producer Jake Gibson reported on Tuesday reported that Sullivan is mentioned in the indictment of Michael Sussmann:

The Durham indictment lays out a scenario where an unnamed Clinton campaign lawyer, “exchanged emails with the Clinton Campaign’s campaign manager, communications director, and foreign policy advisor [Jake Sullivan] concerning the Russian Bank-1 allegations that Sussmann had recently shared,” with an unnamed reporter.
