5 Ex-Hillary Campaigners ‘Invoked 5th Amendment’ In Durham Investigation

(Patriot Insider) – The radical left, led by Obama and Hillary Clinton, hatched the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory that Democrats and media lapdogs still discuss today as if it were factual.

Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation, however, has proved beyond any reasonable doubt that the entire thing was a farce and in his effort to uncover its origins has exposed bombshell after bombshell.

The latest of these bombshells, according to constitutional expert and commentator Jonathan Turley, is that so far, “at least five of the former Clinton campaign contractors/researchers have invoked the Fifth Amendment,” refusing to cooperate “in fear that they might incriminate themselves.”

Turley explained in his column that this information came in a filing in Durham’s case against former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who is accused of lying to federal agents.

Durham “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,'” Turley reported.

The court filing by Durham explained he proposed the immunity deal for an individual known as “Researcher-2” because it was “necessary.”

“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,” Durham explained. “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.”

The investigation is into how the Democrats created and then used the conspiracy against President Trump while he was campaigning and then for years while he was president. The facts are that the entire thing was a charade and that Hillary Clinton was behind it all in an effort to distract Americans from her own scandals, which are not conspiracy theories at all.

The irony is that it is actually those who compiled the false claims against Trump who colluded with Russian sources. Even the phony Steele dossier was influenced by Russian disinformation.

Sussman has been attempting to use attorney-client privilege to conceal evidence from Durham even as Durham detailed how the false Russian collusion claims related to Alfa Bank and involved Clinton General Counsel Marc Elias and Christopher Steele.

“The Alfa Bank hoax and Sussmann’s efforts paralleled the work of his partner Elias at the law firm Perkins Coie in pushing the Steele Dossier in a separate debunked collusion claim,” Turley explained. “The Federal Election Commission recently fined the Clinton Campaign and the DNC for hiding the funding of the dossier as a legal cost by Elias at Perkins Coie.”

Durham also said the CIA and FBI both were effectively sent on a “wild goose chase” by the Clinton campaign, because the allegations against Trump were found to be “manufactured and not even technically possible.”

The Washington Examiner reported Jason Chaffetz, of Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures, described the “incestuous relationship” Durham is uncovering in the Clinton campaign.

“The allegation here is that Michael Sussmann got in with a meeting with the general counsel there at the Federal Bureau of Investigation by representing that he wasn’t representing anybody,” Chaffetz said, “But there’s other documentation and flow of money and logs and whatnot. That’s why this is a case that is important, because these people had this incestuous relationship to be able to actually go in and access things that other people that are on the receiving end of these — of these types of prosecutions don’t get to do.”

Chaffetz, a former congressman from Utah, was joined by Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.

“I’m hearing that there’s some emails that Durham has found that, again, show that they’re — that Sussmann lied to the FBI and that he also lied and misrepresented regarding the connection of all of this with DNC, which is the Democratic National Committee, and the Clinton campaign and who paid for his bogus information that he was throwing out there,” Biggs said.

“So, it’s pretty interesting to see. And I’m not sure that the Clinton campaign folks or the Democratic Party wants to see this go to trial and air their dirty laundry even further,” he said.

Durham is currently working on two active prosecutions, including a case against the main source for Christopher Steele’s bogus dossier and the case against Sussman. Sussman’s trial is set to begin May 16.

The Examiner explained, “Some allies of Trump suspect Durham is building a conspiracy case that will envelop people in and around Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton has denounced what she dubbed a ‘fake scandal’ stemming from Durham’s investigation, though she was vocal about the Alfa Bank allegations when they began to emerge publicly in the closing weeks of the 2016 election.”

Of course, Clinton and her fellow Democrats are only going to double down on the narrative that any accusations or charges against them are just “fake” but we all know the truth. It’d be great if they’d just give it up already. They’re not fooling anybody.
