Special Counsel John Durham wants jurors to know the truth about the origin and handling of the FBI’s so-called “Trump-Russia Collusion” investigation, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said Thursday.
In an interview on “Hannity,” Jordan discussed Durham’s success in convincing a judge to release documents, that the defense had claimed were privileged, in the trial of former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann.
Rep. Jordan said that Special Counsel Durham “wants the court to know the truth, that it was a conspiracy.”
“I mean, think about it, Sean,” Rep. Jordan said, presenting his argument:
“You’ve Christopher Steele, Tech Executive-1, Mr. Joffe, who create the lie.
“You’ve got Glenn Simpson with Fusion GPS who peddles the lie to the press.
You have Michael Sussmann, who takes the lie and hands it to the FBI – again, not just anyone at the FBI, but Jim Baker, the chief counsel.
“And, you’ve got Marc Elias and the Clinton campaign overseeing the whole operation.”
Ultimately, the debunked Trump-Russia Collusion charge against former President Donald Trump was, itself, a conspiracy to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, Rep. Jordan concluded:
“It was false. It was garbage – but, it was a conspiracy to keep Donald Trump out of the White House and Durham is onto them and he wants to make sure the court has the truth and the facts, plain and simple.”
