Special Counsel John Durham dropped another bomb on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign team, along with several people and entities connected to them in what might be the scandal of the century if it can be proven in court.
According to the Washington Examiner, Durham this week issued trial subpoenas for a number of individuals from Clinton’s 2016 campaign and members of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in his continued efforts to prosecute former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann, and Rodney Joffe.
“Clinton’s campaign, the DNC, the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, and the Perkins Coie law firm are fighting Durham’s efforts to compel the submission of withheld documents, arguing their claims of attorney-client privilege should keep the records concealed,” the Examiner noted.
Durham believes all of the aforementioned groups worked together, in various capacities, to push the Trump-Russia collusion hoax in the run-up to the 2016 election.
“The Special Counsel this week took the astonishing and legally inappropriate step of subpoenaing witnesses for the express purpose of having them testify to the invocation of the attorney-client privilege in front of the jury,” Sussmann’s attorneys said of the development.

“Meeting to agree on the express goal of a joint venture is precisely what happened here, on more than one occasion,” Durham recently said of Fusion GPS, the firm tied to the fake Steele dossier that was passed off as legitimate at the time in order to obtain a FISA warrant against members of Trump’s campaign.
Durham added that Fusion GPS “was not primarily providing or supporting expertise relating to legal advice; instead, it appears that the investigative firm’s primary, if not sole, function was to generate opposition research materials that the firm then shared widely.”
Only time will tell what Durham has up his sleeve, but the wall certainly seem to be closing in for a number of people connected to Clinton, if not the former secretary herself.
