Former DNI: Durham Is “Winning The War”

Former Clinton Lawyer Michael Sussmann was found not guilty of lying to the FBI over the Russia-Trump hoax. Many Americans were outraged.

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe dumped cold water on the idea that the Durham probe is failing.

He said he expects more indictments from Durham and that the Durham team is currently “winning the war.”

From The Washington Examiner:

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe voiced confidence in special counsel John Durham after the prosecutor lost the high-profile case against Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann.

“I’m optimistic that not only will he [Durham] be successful in some of the ongoing prosecutions, but can expand the indictments that he wants to bring given the involvement of certain FBI officials in spreading a false narrative to the American people,” Ratcliffe told anchor Maria Bartiromo.

Critics have turned up the pressure on Attorney General Merrick Garland to pull the plug on the inquiry, especially after the Sussmann verdict, but Ratcliffe argued that Durham’s team is “winning the war.”

“First, I think he crystallized the central role played by the Hillary campaign and launching as a dirty trick the whole Russiagate collusion narrative and fanning the flames of it,” he said. “And, second, I think he exposed really dreadful behavior by the supervisors in the FBI, the senior ranks of the FBI, who knowingly used this information to start an investigation of Trump and then duped their own agents by lying to them and refusing to tell them what the real source of that information was. And that was appalling.”

He did call the Sussman verdict “disappointing.”

From Newsmax:

“The verdict was disappointing because it was contrary to the evidence,” he said. “Michael Sussmann’s own text messages confirmed exactly what the government said, which is that he claimed to just be a private citizen coming in when he had a story about a connection between the Trump campaign server and a Russian bank, which was clearly false, when the evidence clearly showed that he was acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign.”

“It wasn’t a judge verdict,” he added, because “the judge in this case wouldn’t allow certain evidence of the Clinton conspiracy to be included.”
