Judge DECIDES – Rules on Hillary Clinton’s SECRETS
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Special Counsel John Durham is continuing to probe the activities of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her campaign team in the lead-up to the presidential election in 2016. One of the biggest breaks in the investigation thus far has been the indictment of campaign lawyer Michael A. Sussmann. Now, the Sussmann case has provided an explosive new insight into the Clinton campaign team’s conduct.
According to a May 6 report from the Daily Wire, Judge Christopher Cooper decided to review emails and other documents the Clinton campaign may have unlawfully hidden from the court. Research firm Fusion GPS, law firm Perkins Coie, and the campaign team asserted these documents enjoyed the protection of attorney-client privilege and they were therefore not required to submit them to the court. Durham’s team disputed this, and the judge agreed to step in and have the final say on the matter.

Judge Cooper reviewed the documents in an “in camera” court session, which means neither the public nor the press was allowed to observe.
The allegedly privileged material includes a number of emails between Michael Sussmann and Rodney Joffe. Joffe is a tech executive who allegedly helped Sussmann concoct evidence to present to the FBI in an effort to damage former President Donald Trump.
On Saturday, May 7, Judge Cooper handed down a ruling denying Durham access to the documents, therefore limiting the evidence against Sussmann.
