I covered the story that Durham might indict this guy for lying to the FBI (during an official investigation) last night.
Sussman’s defense is that he wasn’t working for Clinton when he… ahem, completely independently brought the Alfa bank server bullshit to the FBI. He’s claiming he just brought over that information due to his being a patriot, not because he was working for Clinton.
But… his own billing records say he was working for Clinton for the Alfa bank hoax.
Because he lied to the FBI five years ago — I guess September 19, 2016 — Durham had until this weekend to beat the five year statute of limitations.
Surprising most, he actually indicted him.
As the excerpt from the indictment below spells out, Sussaman knowingly passed a false claim to the FBI, and then lied about who he was working for. This caused the FBI to take this false-from-the-start claim seriously, and resulted in the material harm to an ongoing investigation.
