Spygate was a public-private partnership between Clinton allies linked to the campaign and media, and Clinton-Obama people in the government.
For now the Durham investigation has only done so much and has focused on the “private” part of the partnership. But this latest revelation is still a demonstration of just how far Clinton allies went in spying on Trump.
Durham revealed in a Friday court filing that he has evidence that Sussmann’s other client (dubbed “Technology Executive-1” but known to be former Neustar Senior Vice President Rodney Joffe) “exploited” domain name system internet traffic at “a particular health care provider” (which was likely Spectrum Health), Trump Tower, Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and “the Executive Office of the President of the United States.”
Durham said that “Internet Company-1” accessed “dedicated servers for the EOP as part of a sensitive arrangement whereby it provided DNS resolution services to the EOP” and that Joffe and his associates “exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.”
Durham said Friday that Sussmann “provided an updated set of allegations — including the Russian Bank-1 data and additional allegations relating to Trump” to another U.S. government agency dubbed “Agency-2,” which is reportedly the CIA. Durham said the allegations Sussmann passed along during the Feb. 9, 2017, meeting relied partly on “the purported DNS traffic that Tech Executive-1 and others had assembled pertaining to Trump Tower, Donald Trump’s New York City apartment building, the EOP, and the aforementioned healthcare provider.”
And the trail leads into the Biden White House.
The Alfa Bank allegations began to emerge publicly in the closing weeks of the 2016 election. On Oct. 31 of that year, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted: “Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.” Clinton also shared a lengthy statement from Clinton campaign adviser Jake Sullivan, now President Joe Biden’s national security adviser, who claimed that “this secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia.”
Much as with Steele, Clinton allies were obsessed with manufacturing evidence of Russiagate. And they were willing to go quite far to do this.
According to Durham, the efforts to falsely link Trump to Russia continued after he took office. The internet company that Tech Executive-1 worked for “had come to access and maintain dedicated servers” for the Executive Office of the President as “part of a sensitive arrangement whereby it provided DNS resolution services to the EOP,” Durham explains. “Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.”
The media has carefully refrained from covering these explosive allegations because it’s busy covering a much more important Clinton story.
Hillary Clinton jokingly jabbed at former President Donald Trump in a tweet amid reports that he periodically flushed papers down the toilet in the White House residence.
“Just in time for Galentine’s Day, and the news that Trump was flushing documents down White House toilets…,” Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former secretary of state, tweeted promoting a new hat that reads “but her emails.” Her nonprofit organization Onward Together is selling the hat as part of its fundraising efforts. Her mention of “Galentine’s Day” in the tweet is a nod to the NBC television series “Parks and Recreation,” which popularized the term.
