At first glance, the indictment of a single participant in Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s bogus “Crossfire Hurricane” might not seem like a big deal. In fact, many of you cynics out there, sensing that little more will come of this, have already written me to express dismay, predicting this one person, Perkins Coie attorney and partner Michael Sussmann, will take the fall for all the scammers who collaborated to create what is likely the biggest political hoax of all time. But, believe me, even though this story is currently overshadowed in the news cycle by multiple Biden-caused disasters –- the border catastrophe, the Afghanistan debacle, the vaccine hysteria, to name just three –- it is picking up steam as we find out more.

For example, we know that some of the players in the Russia Hoax happen to be members of President Biden’s current group of White House insiders. One of particular note is Biden foreign policy adviser Jake Sullivan.

FOX NEWS’ “Special Report” had a segment on this Monday night, with Mike Emanuel reporting that the Sussmann indictment “might only be scratching the surface.” He said, “One expert [Jonathan Turley, in an opinion piece for THE HILL] says this indictment exposes a type of Nixonian dirty tricks operation run by, or at least billed to, the 2016 Clinton campaign.” The goal was to spread stories in the media and at the FBI that would trigger an investigation of Trump’s Russia connections. The stories were not true, and they knew they were not true.

This is so crooked, it’s almost beyond belief. It really does make the Watergate scandal look like a mere warm-up. Here is Turley’s MUST-READ piece, the most damning account yet.

On October 31, 2016, Hillary retweeted this whopper from Jake Sullivan: “This could be the most direct link yet between Donald Trump and Moscow. Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.” That bank was Alfa Bank, which later responded to this and similar lies by suing Christopher Steele for libel over what he’d said about them in his now-discredited “dossier.” Fortunately for us, that lawsuit brought Steele out of the woodwork and motivated him to testify in his own defense, revealing much about “Crossfire Hurricane.”

Speaking of Jake Sullivan, Turley said on FOX NEWS, “It’s unnerving that he’s now in charge of looking at intelligence reports and telling President Biden what seems to be good intelligence. This was the ultimate of conspiracy theories, I mean, this was a real tinfoil-hat type of conspiracy theory.”

Sussmann is the Clinton attorney who spread the Alfa Bank story to the FBI, telling them he was there as a concerned private citizen doing his duty (oh, brother), NOT representing anyone else’s legal interests. Perkins Coie billing records show differently, so if that’s what he said to the FBI, it was indeed a lie. Sussmann has pleaded not guilty, and in a court of law he will and should be presumed innocent, but we are not in court and certainly won’t be selected for his jury, so forgive us for failing to find any extenuating circumstances in his case.

As Emanuel reported, “The top Republican on House Judiciary [Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan] says, “This indictment is a sign Durham is getting to the root of the matter.” The Alfa Bank story, Jordan made clear, was one of “the” lies in the very beginning “that launched this whole crazy investigation that we know was all based on just political operatives making things up.”

Emanuel ends his report by implying the Biden “Justice” Department might choose not to make Durham’s final report public. Legally, he gets to make that decision, no matter how unethical it might be. Knowing how Attorney General Merrick Garland operates, I wouldn’t be surprised if he tried to deep-six the report, or else redact the heck out of it. Either action will not be acceptable.

J. D. Gordon, the Pentagon spokesperson under George W. Bush, has written a piece for the DAILY CALLER that summarizes well what Durham has established so far and clarifies some of the connections between actors in this drama.

For example, Gordon reminds us that Sussmann is the attorney who represented the DNC when it claimed to have been hacked by Russia. Recall that they never turned over their servers to the FBI, and there was never any evidence that Russia did it, even though that’s a story the media like to maintain. We’re thinking Sussmann is a man with a lot of secrets pertaining to this.

As for Jake Sullivan, Gordon tells us he admitted during congressional testimony in 2017 that he had met with producers for CNN, FOX NEWS, ABC, CBS and NBC about his “suspicions,” which, as Gordon puts it, “were later exposed as conspiracy theories without evidence.” There is no doubt, these people were on a mission to spread lies about Trump. Sullivan was candidate Hillary’s senior policy adviser; now he advises Biden on foreign policy. (I wouldn’t admit that in public if I were him. Sorry; I digress.) In other words, the same man whom we know was busy spreading lies on Hillary’s behalf is now giving press conferences on Biden’s behalf.

Gordon also prods our memories about James Baker, the FBI general counsel who himself was under investigation for leaking stories to Michael Isikoff and David Corn, “Russiagate’s first two journalist instigators.”

And he dips a toe in the issue of accountability as well, not just for Sussmann but for a list of others who are alluded to in Durham’s indictment.

There’s something else of interest about Baker that we rediscovered in BALL OF COLLUSION, by Andrew McCarthy: Baker happens to have been the one who signed off on FISA warrants issued for “Crossfire Hurricane” to spy on Trump’s campaign associates.

BALL OF COLLUSION, written in 2019, has an account of Sussmann's actions on September 19, 2016, the day he brought the Alfa Bank story to Baker at the FBI, that puts it into context well. It’s in Chapter 15, “FISA Warrants: Targeting Trump, Not Page,” under the subhead “Final FISA Warrant Preparations.” We recommend this book highly if you’d like to be well-versed in what we call THE GREATEST POLITICAL HOAX OF ALL TIME.

I do believe that by the time Durham is finished, it will be revealed as just that.

    Yes! But will anything be done about it?? If no one is going to pay why do the investigation??? We basically already knew there was a scandal.

    I am so glad you, Mike, are intelligent enough to understand & keep up with all the ins & outs of gov t because it is beyond the time I get through reading a piece of info that you ve written I have a headache as it s all beyond me.........not complaining, just explaining. And, most important, thank you for being there to keep up with all of the 'stuff' that goes on.

    Watchout Sussman, you know to much and Hillary hates those who know to much. All this info by Durham is well and good, but the big players in the hoax are still walking free and thumbing their noses at justice. The people are tried of rules for thee but not for me. Like SCOTUS telling Biden to reinstate remain in Mexico and the border is wide open still. All the criminals and lunatics are still in charge and I'm not so sure the Republicans are pushing back.

    YOU are a wonderful man, but living a dream. There are two levels of Americans, and you and I are NOT in the level that can violate the law DAILY and are NEVER held accountable.

    this probe shows us not ONLY how stupid the left is but how desperate they are. No one with any sense doesn't embark on a 2+ year investigation and not leak any of it out. And gather up additional prosecutors. This is going to involve a ton of people for a ton of crimes. DT will clean out the swamp. We the people are going to be in shock and then enraged at what has happened. Sting operation to say the least. Yep in the end it will be so much more than just pain. Could be feeling the wrath of God thru Durham and company.

    "By the time Durham is finished ..."? When exactly will that be, since Special Counsels have a history of never-ending investigations? At the end of the day, by the time everything is wrapped up, it's such Old News, that the public has moved on and no one is held accountable. Memories lapse and trails grow cold.

    Love you governor but do not agree. Fox, and others have put this out for many months, keeping us spell bound and "tuning in" for the next episode. Not to mention how this increased and maintained their ratings. Durham now indicts this attorney as a start. Skeptical to say the least. Bill Barr was a dud and I believe Durham is part of the swamp. NO ONE threw Trump a lifeline, NO ONE! Not taking the bait, that is, to tune in next week.

    You are living in another galaxy if you think the DOJ will release ANY information that will implicate ANY of the major players.
