Durham Filing Reveals CIA Knew in Early 2017 That Data Tying Trump to Russia Was Fake

As the trial of Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann approaches, special counsel John Durham and Sussmann’s lawyers are arguing over what evidence can be admitted. As part of those arguments, Durham filed a “routine” response late on April 15, detailing why the evidence he’s seeking to admit is both relevant and admissible.

These back-and-forth filings are common in the weeks leading up to federal trials, but the disclosures made by Durham are anything but routine.

The most striking of these disclosures concerns data trails that Sussmann and his cohorts, including “Tech Executive-1” Rodney Joffe, had supposedly uncovered between Trump and the Russian Alfa Bank. It was widely claimed that these data trails established a direct communications channel between Trump and the Russian government.

Sussmann took the data to the FBI in September 2016 hoping to trigger an investigation into Trump and his campaign. The existence of an FBI investigation would then be used by the Clinton campaign as a media kill shot against Trump in the final weeks of the 2016 election.

The scheme didn’t work as planned, and Trump went on to win the election. But this setback didn’t put the brakes on an operation that had now turned into an effort to hobble Trump’s presidency. In February 2017, after Trump was inaugurated, Sussmann took the same data trails to the CIA.

CIA Knew Early on That Sussmann Data Fabricated

Durham has now disclosed that the CIA immediately knew that both data trails were fake, finding that they were not “technically plausible,” that they didn’t “withstand technical scrutiny,” that they “contained gaps,” that they conflicted with themselves, and that they were “user-created” and not machine- or tool-generated.

The data provided by Sussmann consisted of alleged internet lookups between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank as well as alleged use of a Russian-made YotaPhone in Trump’s vicinity at Trump Tower, near a Trump interview in Michigan, and near the White House after he was elected president.

The fact that the phone data was highly questionable was obvious from the start. Sussmann alleged there were only a dozen such phones in the United States, claiming that they weren’t publicly available but were sometimes gifted by Russian government officials. However, that information was false. YotaPhones were officially launched in the United States in 2014. And, as Durham notes, between 2014 and 2017, there were millions of lookups of YotaPhones that originated with U.S.-based internet addresses.

CIA Knew 5 Years Ago That Data Tying Trump to Russia Was Fake, yet They Kept That Information to Themselves | Truth Over News

On Friday night, special counsel John Durham dropped a bombshell announcement as part of a routine court filing in the prosecution of Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann.

Durham revealed that the CIA has known since early 2017 that data linking President Donald Trump to communications with Russia were false. These data trails had been pushed by Sussmann, Clinton campaign operatives, and the media to establish the narrative that Trump was colluding with Russia. This same falsified data also played an important role in creating a media and political frenzy that resulted in the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in May 2017. We now know that it was all completely made up.

The latest filing by Durham also confirms that Trump was spied on—after he was elected president—a claim that has been repeatedly ridiculed by the corporate media. To make matters worse for Sussmann and the Clinton campaign, Durham has now confirmed that at least two participants in Clinton’s scheme have been given immunity.
