John Durham Puts Hillary Clinton on Notice in New Filing: ‘Active, Ongoing Criminal Investigation’

Special Counsel John Durham has put Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Jake Sullivan, and others on notice by calling his investigation into the Trump Russia story an “active, ongoing criminal investigation,” three times, in a new court filing.

Durham has been following the evidence and all signs point to the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Clinton’s former lawyer, Michael Sussmann, will stand trial for lying to the FBI this spring.

Senior Legal Affairs Reporter at POLITICO, Josh Gerstein, said:

“Special Counsel John Durham court filing calls his probe ‘active, ongoing criminal investigation’ 3 times.

“Also says indicted lawyer Michael Sussmann is seeking info on NYT in-person meeting with the FBI

“Also says Sussmann met w/DOJ OIG Horowitz in March 2017 about the alleged Alfa bank/Trump tower cyber link.

“Durham’s office acknowledges they had no idea about this meeting before charging Sussmann.”

From Business Insider:

A onetime lawyer for the Hillary Clinton campaign will likely stand trial in late spring 2022 on charges brought by the Trump-era special prosecutor investigating the origins of the Russia investigation, a federal judge said Wednesday.

Michael Sussmann, a former partner at the Democrat-aligned Perkins Coie firm, was indicted in September on a charge he lied to the FBI during a 2016 meeting about possible links between Russia and Donald Trump. 

Prosecutors working with the special prosecutor, John Durham, alleged that Sussmann falsely told the FBI’s top lawyer at the time that he was not meeting with him on behalf of any client.

Sussmann has denied saying that to the FBI’s then-general counsel, James Baker, and pleaded not guilty to the single false statement charge. 

At a court hearing Wednesday, Judge Christopher “Casey” Cooper said he expected to schedule the trial to begin between mid-May and early June.

Cooper, a 2014 appointee to the federal trial court in Washington, DC, said he would order a specific start date after consulting with court officials about scheduling issues connected to social-distancing precautions and other measures taken in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
