Durham: Five Key Hillary Clinton Allies Are Refusing to Cooperate with Special Counsel

Bulldog prosecutor John Durham has revealed in a new court filing that five top Hillary Clinton campaign officials are refusing to cooperate with the special counsel probe.

Clinton’s allies, who have been called as witnesses in the Russiagate investigations, are reportedly pleading the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions.

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley responded to Durham’s explosive filing by saying: “Special Counsel John Durham continues to drop bombshells in filings in the prosecution of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann.”

Turley broke down several of the bombshells revealed in the legal filing: “He is now moving to give immunity to a key witness while revealing that the claims made by the Clinton campaign were viewed by the CIA as ‘not technically plausible’ and ‘user created.’

“He also revealed that at least five of the former Clinton campaign contractors/researchers have invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to cooperate in fear that they might incriminate themselves in criminal conduct.

“Finally, Durham offers further details on the involvement of Clinton campaign general counsel Marc Elias and former British spy Christopher Steele in the alleged false claims.

Turley noted that this is the first time Durham has provided details of the Hillary Clinton campaign associates who have refused to testify.

Durham wrote, according to Turley:

The only witness currently immunized by the government, Researcher-2, was conferred with that status on July 28, 2021 – over a month prior to the defendant’s Indictment in this matter.

And the Government immunized Researcher-2 because, among other reasons, at least five other witnesses who conducted work relating to the Russian Bank-1 allegations invoked (or indicated their intent to invoke) their right against self-incrimination.

The Government therefore pursued Researcher-2’s immunity in order to uncover otherwise-unavailable facts underlying the opposition research project that Tech Executive-1 and others carried out in advance of the defendant’s meeting with the FBI.

Turley also believes Durham is closing on Hillary Clinton’s inner circle.

“According to Durham, the Alfa Bank allegation fell apart even before Sussmann delivered it to the FBI,” he writes.

“There were many who expressed misgivings not only within the companies working on the secret project but also among unnamed ‘university researchers’ who repeatedly said the argument was bogus.

“The researchers were told they should not be looking for proof but just enough to ‘give the base of a very useful narrative.’

“’Researcher-1′ repeated these doubts, the indictment says, and asked, ‘How do we plan to defend against the criticism that this is not spoofed 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.’ You do realize that we will have to expose every trick we have in our bag to even make a very weak association.’

“’Researcher-1′ allegedly further warned, ‘We cannot technically make any claims that would fly public scrutiny. The only thing that drives 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?'”
