Well, this weekend had bigger news than Super Bowl LVI. For years, Special Counsel John Durham has been looking into “Russiagate,” the conspiracy by Democrats in government to frame Donald Trump. Obama, and later James Comey of the FBI, led an effort to dig up dirt on Trump’s campaign to make it appear that he worked with Russia to “steal” the 2016 Election.
It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard from Durham and his team. The last thing we knew was that a few people were being subpoenaed, maybe one person was facing charges. Hardly hot stuff. But this weekend Durham dropped a major bomb. Turns out, lawyers from the Clinton campaign paid a tech company to break into Trump Tower servers… and the White House.
The filing says that during the summer of 2016, the tech executive worked with Sussman, an investigative firm retained by a law firm on behalf of the Clinton campaign, and employees at tech companies to gather “data.” […]
“Tech Executive-1 tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” Durham states. “In doing so, Tech Executive-1 indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPs,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”
Durham also writes that during Sussman’s trial, the government will establish that among the Internet data Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited was domain name system (DNS) internet traffic pertaining to “(i) a particular healthcare provider, (ii) Trump Tower, (iii) Donald Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and (iv) the Executive Office of the President of the United States (EOP).” [Source: Daily Wire]
This is pretty huge. According to these court filings, a law firm hired by Clinton was working with a “tech executive” to mine data from various servers. The goal was to establish a narrative that linked Trump to Russia. They continued this work through the election and even afterward, targetting servers from Trump Tower and even the Office of the President.
Does that sound like you think it sounds? Yes, yes it does. Clinton’s campaign hired people to break into White House servers to steal information. That is eerily similar to the Watergate scandal during the Nixon administration—the one that took down a president. In actuality, this is much worse. Because that was just a one-time break-in of a hotel room. This was a wide-scale effort to undermine an American election and slander the president.
Donald Trump thinks as much and has issued a blistering statement.
The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia. This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution. In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this.

Do those sound like strong words. Well, it’s because they are. Donald Trump’s campaign was targeted by a tech company and attempts were made to frame him as a Russian puppet. They even did this while he was in the White House, which can be considered treason. As Trump said, such a crime would have resulted in the death penalty, at other times in our history.
But what will come from this revelation? It’s impossible to know, right now. But this filing could generate significant momentum in the investigation. Durham might be preparing charges against many figures involved, perhaps even Clinton herself.
