THREAD: Lots of filings hit in Sussmann. Check this out. Was this on Baker's phone the OIG didn't share with Durham until someone else mentioned it?
2/ This provides another great example of the big circle hug the Clinton Campaign used, feeding media and FBI same fake story, and then media uses FBI to give story credibility and FBI uses media to give its investigation credibility.
3/ I think this is first time, Durham spoke of the motive here, but that will be key at trial for the jury to "get" it.
4/ Interesting!!
5/ See how DC law is on this point--doesn't have to be illegal conspiracy--so Durham doesn't have to prove they other members committed a crime to get it admitted.
6/ Imagine that--Elias can't recall.
7/ WHOA: The CEO??
8/ Interesting to see the Clinton Campaign folks "connected"
9/ Not sure if we knew this or not?
10/ Yup, again State Department is front and center.
11/ Interesting re Researcher #2:
12/ Curious if Sussmann told Baker that the three "differrent" white papers were by folks all working together?
13/ WHOA. So who was working with April who was killing herself and needs some positive encouragement?
14/ I still don't know how to read this:
15/ Yup! That's why even those not criminally culpable are morally culpable.. See also yesterday's article.…
16/ "Plausibility." Yup, great standard for cyber security experts to want to have sold to American people of a conspiracy against a political enemy!
17/ Dang. I wish Research 1 was still oblivious that his communications via Ga Tech email were subject to FOIA.
18/ So is Dagon suggesting the data collection violated Trump's privacy rights (absent criminal conduct which therre was none?)
19/ "Where people nee to make a decision how to vote." Yup, that's precisely what this was about. Shame on them.
20/ Holy Sh!T:
21/ Who's the conspiracy theorists again?
22/ So, Durham's team doesn't need to say the data is fake--they need only say there were serious doubts & that explains motive or the lie. AND that also connects to materiality. That was wise move b/c you don't jury thinking it matters is true or false for issue on trial.
23/ Was this in the white paper Researcher 1 reviewed?
23/ These are three pieces of 404(b) evidence Durham seeks to admit. 404(b) evidence is evience of other bad acts, crimes, etc. You can't present that evidence to say "once a drug dealer, always a drug dealer," but you can to show motive, intent or other things.
24/ Argument that statement to CIA is admissible because it fits this scenario.
25/ Also shows intent:
26/ Durham wants to also make sure Sussmann doesn't spin as a political witchhunt
27/ And citing Stone case here:
28/ Media conveniently ignores this about Durham:
29/ Yes, Clinton Campaign knew exactly what was going on!
31/ Again, the gov't believes white papers are false but wisely isn't making that an issue.
32/ I'm confused that Sussmann's attorneys would pen this line given the text message...
33/ So we now know who's notes they were for sure.
34/ This ties in perfectly with my article yesterday. They didn't ask b/c they worked with cyber security folks all the time and trusted them
35/ Imagine that, Sussmann's friend didn't remember what he said
36/ Sussmann wants cases tossed unless Joffe given immunity...
37/ So more details here re the investigation re Joffe:
38/ This will be very interesting when Government responds to these arguments!
39/ Who did they/will they grant immunity to?
40/ Durham trying to get Joffe to cooperate.
40/ So this is what they want Joffe to testify to. Durham hasn't claimed Clinton retained him. All of this seems silly given text Sussmann sent to Durham, which was NOT mentione in indictment, leading me to think it was only discovered on phone OIG had belatedly shared!!
41/ Ha. Sussmann's attorney cite Trump v. Clinton as basis to argue evidence is merely a political hit.
42/ Again this goes to yesterday's article on trust in cyber security experts and the breadth of information they have.
43/ Expert data on this point--in context makes show motive.
44/ So could "motive" be shown if Sussmann didn't know? Does Durham have evidence that Sussmann knew? OR is it relevant b/c Sussmann allegedly said contacts wanted to remain anon. to show WHY they did?
45/ Wait! @McAdooGordon is that the reasonable inference? That Durham "seeks to call Steele"?
46/ And as @McAdooGordon highlighested soon after the indictment dropped....

THREAD: Breaking. Durham files Motion to Compel Clinton Campaign, DNC, and Fusion GPS to produce material w/h based on "attorney-client" privilege. Image
2/ In sum, Durham wants the documents w/h identified in appendix to be given to court to decide if privilege. (Reading while tweeting so bear with me). First main argument is that Fusion wasn't retained to help w/ legal advise but to get dirt & that isn't protected. Image
3/ Ohhh, not sure if this was public before but the white paper re Alfa is included as an exhibit. Image

THREADETTE: Lunch time convo with DS.
DS: Eating quietly.
DS: "What's that look for?"
Me: "I'm just trying to figure something out."
DS: "What."
Me: "Federal Rule of Evidence 404(b).
DS: "What's that."
Me: "Is a rule about what they can use in SpyGate trial."
2/ DS: "I don't really get SpyGate. Can you give me the Idiots Guide to SpyGate."
Me: "Sure." Explain simplify....
DS: "Why did they think Trump was working w/ Russia.
Me: "B/c a British spy wrote memos that made up that this Russian said Trump did this." expanding.
3/ DS: "So they put that on Trump's computer?"
Me: "No. They just gave it to the FBI & FBI said "ah ha, Trump's working with Russia."
DS: "That stupid. And the FBI believed it?"
Me: "Yup".

In effort to destroy Trump, Dems/Never Trump/Media/deep state gravely harmed national security. While Hunter Biden is latest example, abuse of FISA court & Sussmann/Joffe & cyber security experts' sham "intel" also did grave damage to our country. @FDRLST…

THREAD: With @washingtonpost now covering Hunter Biden's laptop (NOTE: They should be covering Hunter's laptopS plural), in addition to @nytimes, push to isolate this as scandal about son and not the father has already started, so here's your reading list to counter spin. 1/
2/… This scandal is all about Biden...well and the press and the 50 former high level intelligence community officers....
3/ I haven't dug into the Post's article yet, but from the Times opening salvo, there was much to be gleaned.…

THREAD: With Daily Mail posting emails exposing Hunter's more expansive role in Ukraine--and that Russia told the world of that first, correctly--folks are finally focusing more evidence of Biden family corruption. 1/…
2/ So, here's your reading list, with first an explosive exclusive from six months ago that others in press have still failed to report: Hunter believed in 2018 Russian had stolen his first laptop (not one where all these emails coming from-2nd one he abandoned at repair shop
3/ Keypoint: The emails being released now re Ukraine are dated pre-2018, which means they would have also been on the 1st laptop Hunter believed Russians stole. And keypoint #2: FBI KNEW or should have by Dec. 2019 that Hunter believed Russians had 1st laptop.
