THREAD: 1. Why Sussman is guilty as charged.
The popular leftist narrative goes "who cares what Sussman told Baker? Everyone knew he was working for the Clinton campaign." It's flawed because it's asking the wrong question.
2. The right question is "would Baker have passed on Sussman's data to investigators had Sussman informed him he was there representing the Clinton campaign?" The answer is no. In fact Baker said he wouldn't have even taken the meeting.
3. "Baker insisted he had a clear memory that, at the 2016 meeting, Sussmann claimed he was not bringing the allegations to the FBI on behalf of any client.
“I’m 100 percent confident that he said that in the meeting,” he said.…
4. The key point overlooked by most: Sussman didn't lie just to give himself cover. He lied so BAKER would have cover to hand the data over to Cyber Division. In fact the lie was necessary BECAUSE "everyone knew" Sussman was working for the Clinton campaign. Including Sussman.

MINI-THREAD: 1. Durham the diabolical? In its closing argument the Sussman defense team ripped the FBI as being willing and complicit participants in Sussman's Alfa data operation. Did Durham purposely encourage and prod them into doing so?
2. Durham had to know Sussman's team needed to maintain the FBI was hot to investigate this regardless of Sussman's affiliation with the Clinton campaign, to show Sussman's alleged false statement wasn't material. So Durham portrayed the FBI as innocent victims of Suss's lie.
3. The Sussman team insisted otherwise. The FBI "didn't press. They didn't want to know." So in their effort to spare Sussman from prison time, Sussman's own defense lawyers may have handed Durham objective third-party evidence -- for future charges against Comey's 7th Fl. crew.
