Filing: Clinton Paid to Spy on Trump

I know that we all knew this already, but it’s worth remembering that we were lied to, and smeared as liars, for years.

Hillary Clinton‘s election campaign paid money to a tech firm to ‘infiltrate’ servers that were at Trump Tower, and later the White House.


According to a filing from Special Counsel John Durham, the aim was to try and smear Trump by linking him to Russia, which had been accused of meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.


Durham was appointed by then-Attorney General William Barr to serve as the Special Counsel for the United States Department of Justice in October 2020, while Trump was president. He continues to investigate a case that is sure to anger supporters of the 45th president.




The former chief investigator of the Trump-Russia probe for the House Intelligence Committee under Republican Devin Nunes, Kash Patel, said Friday’s filing ‘definitively showed the Hillary Clinton campaign directly funded and ordered its lawyers at Perkins Coie to orchestrate a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection between President Trump and Russia,’ reports Fox News.


‘Per Durham, this arrangement was put in motion in July of 2016, meaning the Hillary Clinton campaign and her lawyers masterminded the most intricate and coordinated conspiracy against Trump when he was both a candidate and later President of the United States while simultaneously perpetuating the bogus Steele Dossier hoax,’ Patel told Fox.

    Our local sock puppet, Lying Karen Le Roi will never believe it or will justify it.

  2. Merlin

    Let’s hope Durham is allowed to follow the trail that leads right into the Obama White House. Someone granted the Clinton campaign’s access to WH communications. This shouldn’t be allowed to end with a few campaign scapegoats.

  3. Mar

    Well, Merlin, it appears Durham is not trying that hard, especially if thinks he might Clintoned.

  4. Jason

    I can hear the war room meetings being scheduled at twitter, facebook, reddit, snopes to get ahead of this. Mostly False, Linked removed, news and political leaders accounts banned, transgender autistic dog walking moderators taking control. Disgusting liberals.

    Ironic that Hillary just released her new hat… I’m sure that money will help her fund a new round of surprise suicides.

  5. Merlin

    Much remains to be seen, but if Durham were conducting a Mueller-style investigation he would have settled for the low hanging fruit long ago. If he’s flipped Sussman and has proof that some within the IC (specifically the DoJ – National Security Division) have withheld evidence and perjured themselves in his process he’s free to go after them criminally for their extrajudicial activities. For Durham to have gotten this far there must be enough white hats left to provide at least some hope for eventual accountability.

  6. Mar

    This has been going on for years. When does the statute of limitations kick in?

  7. Jason

    >This has been going on for years. When does the statute of limitations kick in?

    Treason doesn’t have a statute of limitations.

  8. Jason

    Ironic that slimy / shady “Technology Executive-1” is Rodney Joffe, and the “Internet Company-1” is Neustar, Inc…. which is itself a TransUnion company. They are hard in advertising and advocating for information Security… all the while, one of the Executives – Rodney Joffe, was breaking the law, and mining not only an individual’s DNS activity… but also the Office of the President’s activity.

    TransUnion, let that sink in for a minute.

  9. dad29

    The SOL clock begins after the very last criminal act, and it appears that all of those acts are ‘connected,’ so when did Obama/Clinton STOP spying on Trump’s White House? Add 7 or 10 years to that date.

  10. Jason

    Lets not forget that Jake Sullivan is very likely implicated in this mess as well… as “Foreign Policy Adviser” . And that he’s ringing the bell for a war with Russia now. The cards are falling, the problem is that a lot of people are going to suffer and die when these swamp monsters are exterminated.

  11. Jason

    Dad, there is no SOL on Treason…. if this was done while Trump was president – intercepting, mining, sharing the DNS query records of the Office of the President… that is clearly treason.

  12. MjM

    I doubt every much that Sussman has flipped. He was indicted way back in Sept, has pled not guilty, and Durham’s Friday court filing includes a lengthy explanation of how the law firm representing Sussman could cause conflict of interest because the firm has represented other clients on the opposite side. Sussman has waived any claims of conflict, and Durham’s long notes in the filing is a very smart move; it makes the court very aware of issue and prevents Sussman from making any such conflict claims down the road.

    Given that the lie Sussman committed – denying he was working for Hildabeast – goes directly to the very heart of the entire investigation Durham does have at least a short carrot dangling in front of Sussman. Whether Sussman turns on fellow lawyerman Elias and others is the question. For single slap-on-the-wrist perjury charge? Doubtful. .

  13. dad29

    Yes, treason does not have SOL. I’ll bet you a large, large, amount that the “T” word will never come from the mouth of a Fed prosecutor.

  14. dad29

    ………unless they’re after Trump or any of his peeps……

  15. Mike

    Looks like Hillary hired a couple of Nixon’s Watergate plumbers.

  16. Merlin

    Once Durham actually names names… would citizen Trump have the option of pursuing them civilly? Concurrently with or independently of whether or not Durham actually charges/convicts someone?

  17. dad29

    See how the Palin case comes out. It’s possible that she and Trump will OWN the NYT, and Trump will own at least voting majority of WaPo, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC. Don’t bother with the individuals. Go for the REAL money.

  18. Merlin

    Doesn’t seem like a guy who forgives and forgets people who piss on his shoes.

  19. Mar

    “Doesn’t seem like a guy who forgives and forgets people who piss on his shoes.”
    That’s true, but there’s a time to forgive and forget vs holding a huge grudge, even if the grudge is well deserved.

  20. Tuerqas

    And I repeat my question from an earlier post: When has a former President (or his wife) ever been prosecuted after leaving office for anything? There will be no repercussions even if everyone is found guilty.

  21. MHMaley

    We can ignore the comments from Nunes and his lawyer as he unsuccessfully sued a cow .

    We’ll see what comes from the finding of Dodd ( whose reputation is a a non partisan .

    It appears Ms Palin won’t own the NYT

  22. dad29

    Jury’s still out on her, Maley.

    The “judge”–who actually was a star in Punch’n’Judy–declared that the NYT did not “knowingly” defame Palin.

    Uh-huh. You go right ahead and believe that, Maley. That’ll prove that all the money you spent on your HS education was completely wasted.

  23. Mar

    It was a very bizarre decision by the judge announcing he is going to dismiss the case even though the jury is still out and not sequestered .
    But he is old and and a Democrat appointed judge, so not that surprising.

  24. MjM

    would citizen Trump have the option of pursuing them civilly?

    You’d have to ask, “based on what?”. This operation was a criminal conspiratorial enterprise.

    From the Sussmann indictment:

    k. On or about August 22, 2016, Researcher-I emailed the aforementioned recipients, expressing continued doubt regarding the Russian Bank-1 allegations that SUSSMANN would later convey to the FBI, and raising concerns about the researchers’ bias against Trump:

    Let[‘]s for a moment think of the best case scenario, where we are able to show (somehow) that DNS [] communication exists between Trump and R[ussia]. How do we plan to defend against the criticism that this is not spoofed [I traffic we are observing? There is no answer to that. Let’s assume again that they are not smart enough to refute our “best case” scenario. [Tech Executive-I], you do realize that we will have to expose every trick we have in our bag to even make a very weak association? Let[‘]s all reflect upon that for a moment. Sorry folks, but unless we get combine netflow and DNS traffic collected at critical points between suspect organizations, we cannot technically make any claims that would fly public scrutiny.

    The only thing that drivels! us at this point is that we just do not like [Trump]. This will not fly in eyes of public scrutiny. Folks, I am afraid we have tunnel vision. Time to regroup?

    On Oct 31, 2016 Hildabeast tweeted, “Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.“,

    That tweet included a statement by then Clinton campaign advisor and now Biden National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan:

    “This could be the most direct link yet between Donald Trump and Moscow. Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.

    This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia. It certainly seems the Trump Organization felt it had something to hide, given that it apparently took steps to conceal the link when it was discovered by journalists.

    This line of communication may help explain Trump’s bizarre adoration of Vladimir Putin and endorsement of so many pro-Kremlin positions throughout this campaign. It raises even more troubling questions in light of Russia’s masterminding of hacking efforts that are clearly intended to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. We can only assume that federal authorities will now explore this direct connection between Trump and Russia as part of their existing probe into Russia’s meddling in our elections.”

    The “secret hotline” was a mail server run by an unconnected PR company with hundreds of customers.

    The Sussmann indictment is here:

    A fascinating read.

  25. Jason

    Ironic isn’t it that this purported tech exec and his buddy researchers… somehow think that a Russia controlled server, trying to lookup the IP address of the server named “mail I” could in any way indicate that Trump was working with the Russians. The logical fallacies of this are on par with “White Supremist says Trump is OK – therefore Trump is racist”. Duh, this is basic shit that even Leroy doesn’t need to ask for help with.

    Good old Tech-Executive-1 – Rodney Joffe – has been in big legal trouble before. I bet he’s already singing like a canary for reduced charges…. leading directly to the most recent statements by the investigation team.

  26. MHMaley

    So , the jury is in and Ms Palin WILL Not own the NYT absent a successful appeal with far better lawyers .

    She has as much chance at winnings as Trump will have telling his accountant to walk back their statement yesterday that their client’s decade long financial statements are accurate .

    What happens first ?
    Palin wins her case challenging the “Absence of Malice “ defense or the former Presidents lenders call in their notes citing fraud ?

  27. Mar

    I would say Pin wins her case. The judge was a moron. You don’t say what you ate going while the jury is still deliberating and not sequestered. All they had to was look at the news yesterday and decide they were going to follow the judge. Great chance of in appeal.
    As far as President Trump, well, you have have the fantasy wet dream at that

  28. Mar

    I should say Palin and what you are going to do. There is a Grammar Nazi around here, who likes to calls us out.

  29. Merlin

    The Biden campaign was a client of Neustar in 2020 to the tune of $18, 819 for accounting and compliance work. Cough, cough. Prices went up since they worked for Hillary.

  30. MjM

    Ironic isn’t it…

    The Clinton Conspirators knew it was illegitimate. Six weeks before Hildabeast’s tweet….

    J. On or about August 21, 2016, Tech Executi ve-1 emailed the recipients, urging them to push forward with additional research concerning Trump, which he stated would “give the base of a very useful narrative.” Later in the same email, Tech Executive-I expressed his own belief that the “” domain (referring to the subject of the allegations that SUSSMANN conveyed to the FBI) was not a secret communications channel with Russian Bank-1, but “a red herring,” noting that the host for that domain “is a legitimate valid [ customer relationship management] company.”

  31. MjM

    Game on! Sussman responds to Durham’s last Friday filing:

    Two eye catchers….

    The Indictment is 27 pages long and reads as though there was a vast conspiracy, involving the Clinton Campaign and Mr. Sussmann, to defraud the FBI into investigating Donald Trump as part of an “October surprise.” But the Indictment does not charge anyone other than Mr. Sussmann; the Indictment does not charge a conspiracy; and the Indictment does not even charge a fraud.”

    Well, duh. That is not what the indictment was for. The 27 pages lays out how Durham and the rest of us know you lied, Mr. Sucksmann. You know, dates, times, billing records, emails, and such. It’s called “evidence”. The stuff needed for an indictment. You’d think Sucksmann, a former DOJ hack, would know this.

    Several phrases come to mind, like, “first shot across the bow” and “be careful what you wish for”.

    For example, the Special Counsel has alleged that Mr. Sussmann met with the FBI on behalf of the Clinton Campaign, but it was not until November 2021—two months after Mr. Sussmann was indicted—that the Special Counsel bothered to interview any individual who worked full-time for that Campaign to determine if that allegation was true. It is not

    Speaking of phrases, it is strangely curious Mr. Sucksmann chose to use the words, “worked full-time for that campaign”. The obvious conclusion is that Durham had more than enough part-timers and/or, more likely, those NOT working for the campaign – but techcompany-1, 2, 3, researcher-1,2 3, etc. etc. – presenting plenty of evidence of your complicity. Anyway, that’s the way these thing work. More phrases: “Bottom to top.”, “Climbing the ladder”.

  32. Mar

    Remember all the years Lying Karen Le Roi was saying about how President Trump was working for Putin.
    Well, looks like Lying Karen Le Roi was wrong again.
    Lying Karen Le Roi would admit her mistakes.
    I won’t be holding my breath for an apology.

  33. Le Roi du Nord

    Remember when mar said Palin wins her case vs the NYT ? Or whatever he was trying to say, “I would say Pin wins her case.”

    Well, looks like mar was wrong again.

    And I have never said trump was working for putin. That would imply trump knows the definition of work, something he has never done in his life.

    So mar, once again I won’t apologize for something I didn’t do.

  34. Mar

    Oh, just keep on lying Lying Karen Le Roi. You have said many times that President was Putin’s puppet.
    As far as work, Trump has accomplished so much that you in your miserable life and worked harder than you ever could dream of.
    As far as the Palin case, the case is not over yet, moron. There will be appeals. If she fails in the appeals, then my prediction would be wrong, something you are very familiar with.

  35. dad29

    absent a successful appeal with far better lawyers .

    Since the judge’s decision to ‘toss’ the suit came to the jury by push-notification WHILE THEY WERE DELIBERATING there’s no doubt there will be an appeal.

    Can’t comment on the lawyers–except that Mr. Sussman will be otherwise occupied for a while.

  36. Jason

    >Can’t comment on the lawyers

    I think Mrs Palin should reach out to Mr Sandmann’s team.

  37. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrong again mar, in soooooo many ways. The use of “puppet” in this context is one of your favorites, not mine.

    And you are wrong regarding palin, and will be until she appeals and wins, which is iffy at best since one jury has already disagreed with her. Care to place a wager on if she wins an appeal?

    So relish your wrongness, it’s all you have going for you.

  38. Tuerqas

    So Le Roi, you are saying that you never said Trump was Putin’s puppet or that he was working for Putin? It’s that luscious lefty short term memory again, eh? or is it just old age? I know I am losing bits and pieces these days so I could sympathize with that. I bet I could find at least 3 times where you used exactly those terms on this blog.

  39. Mar

    Lying Karen Le Roi “on December 30, 2019 at 3:08 pm


    And that makes Putin even more dangerous to democracy. And he owns and intimidates trump.”
    And Lying Pervert Boy Le Roi is caught lying again.

  40. Le Roi du Nord

    Geez mar, where are the words “work/work for/working”, or “puppet” in that quote?

    You even screwed up your “gotcha” moment. Bravo !

  41. Mar

    Gee,Lying Karen Le Roi, I thought you said you were a man and admit when you Re wrong.
    I guess not. Just a little sissy boy you are and a coward.
    But being a sissy boy fits you well, as you support the the sissy boy Pervert judge who is now sitting prison writing you live letters.

  42. Mar

    “That would imply trump knows the definition of work, something he has never done in his life.”
    Of course, this another lie.
    How many buildings did he have a part in putting up?
    How many contracts has he signed? How manybpeople did he supervise?
    As for you, have never provided you ever went to college or actually worked a day in your life. And, no, you word won’t do sincevyiu have lied so often.

  43. MjM

    And guess where that $60 million in missing BLM money is.

    Go ahead. Guess.

  44. MjM

    Le Chatte DuNord complains: “ That would imply trump knows the definition of work, something he has never done in his life.”

    Yeah, not at all like coal-mining truck-driving lumber-jacking civil rights-marching school bus-driving raised-in-a-black-church Babblin’ Joe.

  45. Jason

    >That would imply trump knows the definition of work, something he has never done in his life.

    Trump worked for you, and he did so harder and more effectively and for less in return than any other president… or even you. Yeah, this selfless man worked harder and for less money – for you than you did for yourself, for your entire life. Go ahead, reply to that if you can, you pussy.

  46. Merlin

    >And guess where that $60 million in missing BLM money is.

    It has never been missing. Satan, Inc. has always known exactly how much slush money was available for domestic terrorism and where it was kept. Why formalize accounting of it now unless they’re anticipating legal troubles for which they can’t guarantee the safety of a political solution?

  47. MjM

    Yes, it could be stashed and intended as Dark Money. But if it has yet to be dispersed, what reason not to account for it?

    Most likely all or a very large portion of it is actually gone. How much and where it was directed is the tell-tale. Hence the accounting trick to delay reporting, to buy time to make shit up.

    As we know, Elias is very good at making shit up.

    Here is Durham’s response to Sucksmann’s response: :

  48. Jason

    That is a well written bitch slap to a bitch of a human slime.
