Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation against Hillary Clinton is now even closer to victory.
Durham had recently won a round in the fight to gather records from a research firm connected to the infamous “Steele dossier” after a judge had rejected claims of the records being covered by attorney-client privilege.
Washington, DC federal Judge Christopher Cooper came to the conclusion of this ruling after quoting from an email where Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch had pressured a reporter to “do the f–king Alfa bank secret comms story.”
“How is that assisting [in] providing legal advice? That is assisting a media strategy.”
Here’s a previous report from Techno Fog’s SubStack:
As part of the prosecution of former Clinton Campaign/DNC lawyer Michael Sussmann: Special Counsel Durham is seeking the following e-mails/communications that have been either redacted or hidden from his review:
- Documents involving Fusion GPS’s provision of opposition research and media-related strategies to Hillary for America, the DNC, and Perkins Coie. This includes the Fusion GPS/Perkins Coie contract and 38 e-mails and attachments between and among Fusion GPS, Rodney Joffe, and Perkins Coie.
- Communications between Fusion GPS and Rodney Joffe relating to the Alfa Bank allegations, and “other emails that precede, and appear to relate to, those communications.” This includes emails between Joffe and Laura Seago, whom Durham has subpoenaed as a trial witness.
The Clinton Campaign (including Robby Mook and John Podesta), Fusion GPS, Perkins Coie, Rodney Joffe, and the DNC are fighting to keep these e-mails and records secret, reasoning Fusion’s “role was to provide consulting services in support of the legal advice attorneys at Perkins Coie were providing to” the Clinton Campaign.
That argument – that Fusion GPS was helping with “legal advice” – is hopefully the last conspiracy theory they’ll provide to the public, after Fusion GPS has already poisoned America, through the FBI, DOJ, and the press, with baseless allegations of secret, back-channels between Trump Organization and Russian marketing servers, piss tapes, and broader allegations of Trump/Russia collusion.
Fusion GPS poisoned the public with deceitful “opposition research”
And now, to keep documents from Special Counsel Durham, the Clinton Campaign tells the court Fusion GPS was providing “legal advice”
The lies are catching up to them.https://t.co/CWhrdzEH8y

In the midst of the hearing, Cooper had questioned whether Durham would request access to all of the records in question if the judge agreed that all 38 emails are not privileged.
Prosecutor Jonathan Algor replied by stating that Durham would not be needing the remaining records “for this trial”, however Cooper’s decision “is important” for Durham’s probe of the FBI investigation into suspected ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The Clinton campaign and DNC have already been fined by the Federal Election Commission for their mislabeling of payments on official disclosure forms to Fusion GPS.
