WASHINGTON, D.C.- According to a report from Thursday, September 30th, Special Counsel John Durham has issued additional subpoenas as part of his ongoing investigation into the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) probe into Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign ties to Russia during the 2016 presidential election (which were debunked).

The grand jury subpoenas for documents came in the beginning of September after Durham charged Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann with lying to the FBI in a September 2016 meeting. During that meeting, Sussmann reportedly handed over data purporting to show links between the Trump organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.
That tip became part of the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, but the FBI ultimately could not find evidence of a link.
In seeking additional documents from Sussmann’s former law firm, Perkins Coie, investigators form the special counselor’s office appear to be sharpening their focus on the Democratic political machinery during the 2016 presidential campaign and efforts to tie Trump to Russia.
As Breitbart News previously reported, the Democrat election lawyer Marc Elias, regarded as a chief figure in the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, departed Perkins Coie on August 22, before Sussmann was charged.
In 2016, Elias reportedly arranged for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to hire the Fusion GPS opposition research firm, a move which was hidden in federal election filings.

In 2017, the Washington Post revealed details regarding Elias’s alleged involvement in the matter.
The Post stated that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and Kremlin.
The Post added that Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research. After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community.
The infamous dossier compiled by Steele was given to the FBI and was used to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to surveil one-time Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The FBI did not disclose the political origins of the document.
The agency later misled the FISA court during the warrant renewal application process after learning that the dossier’s contents were discredited. In announcing his departure from Perkins Coie, Elias made no mention of the Durham probe.
Instead, Elias stated he was leaving the firm with “eleven partners and three counsel” to launch his own new election law office, Elias Law Group LLP.
John Durham Finally Pulls The Trigger On Investigation – He's Moving To Indict Clinton-Connected Lawyer https://t.co/ijO20c7gu5

Meanwhile, some Republican lawmakers, including Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) have expressed optimism about the prospect of Durham’s investigation bringing some form of justice. Nunes said in a statement:
“I’ve been probably the only guy in American who’s actually had confidence in John Durham. I’ve been saying this for a very long time and that’s largely because he’s run a very closed investigation, unlike what you saw with [Robert] Mueller’s, and it’s an investigation like they should be, where you don’t have leaks to the fake news companies.”
“In this case, it is a quintessential definition of an indictment of lying to the FBI that I think is really a slam dunk. And now, the question becomes, can Durham get the next set of charges, which would be the larger conspiracy?
No one believes that Sussmann and all these cats at the FBI and the Clinton campaign … didn’t know about this, right? This is the first step, hopefully, of many.”

Finally! Durham seeking indictment of Democratic lawyer for lying to the FBI during the Russia hoax investigation
September 16th, 2021
WASHINGTON, DC- After what seems like eons of waiting, it looks like former U.S. Attorney John Durham may finally be getting ready to indict someone relative to the Russia collusion hoax, Breitbart reports.
According to sources, Durham has told the Justice Department he will be forwarding a case to a grand jury for the purposes of indicting cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann for allegedly lying to the FBI, the New York Times is reporting.
Sources say that Durham, appointed by the Trump administration to look into the so-called “Russia collusion” hoax over alleged election interference will turn over evidence to a grand jury, seeking an indictment of Sussmann concerning a meeting between he and the FBI in 2016 during which he claimed not to be working on behalf of a client while attempting to connect Donald Trump to Russia.
Sussmann is a partner at Perkins Coie, a Washington, D.C. law firm that has numerous ties to the Democratic Party, as well as the anti-Trump “Lincoln Project.” Perkins Coie is often used by Democratic politicians and had previously “represented the Democratic National Committee on issues related to Russia’s 2016 hacking of its servers,” the Times reported.
Sussmann has previously denied conducting any work on behalf of the Clinton campaign.
“Mr. Sussmann has committed no crime,” Sussmann’s attorneys, Sean M. Berkowitz and Michael S. Bosworth of Latham & Watkins told the Times.
“Any prosecution here would be baseless, unprecedented and an unwarranted deviation from the apolitical and principled way in which the Department of Justice is supposed to do its work. We are confident that if Mr. Sussmann is charged, he will prevail at trial and vindicate his good name.”
Durham is under the gun due to statute of limitation concerns.
Since the crime committed by Sussmann allegedly occurred on September 19, 2016, Durham must file charges by that date, or the charge will be rendered moot based on the statute of limitations.
Reports indicate that hapless Attorney General Merrick Garland is not expected to overrule Durham’s request for a grand jury to indict Sussmann.
The potential indictment stems from a meeting that Sussmann had in 2016 with the FBI’s top attorney, James A. Baker to communicate “data and analysis from cybersecurity researchers who thought that odd internet data might be evidence of a covert communications channel between computer servers associated with the Trump Organization and with Alfa Bank, a Kremlin-linked Russian financial institution.”
“The F.B.I. eventually decided those concerns had no merit,” said the times. “The special counsel who later took over the Russia investigation, Robert. S. Mueller III, ignored the matter in his final report.”
Mr. Sussmann’s lawyers have told the Justice Department that he sought the meeting because he and the cybersecurity researchers believed that The New York Times was on the verge of publishing an article about the Alfa Bank data and he wanted to give the F.B.I. a heads-up. (In fact, The Times was not ready to run that article, but published one mentioning Alfa Bank six weeks later.)
Mr. Durham has been using a grand jury to examine the Alfa Bank episode and appeared to be hunting for any evidence that the data had been cherry-picked or the analysis of it knowingly skewed, The New Yorker and other outlets have reported. To date, there has been no public sign that he has found any such evidence.
Durham said that according to Baker’s statement to investigators, Sussmann claimed he was not questioning the Trump campaign on behalf of any client, however during a 2017 deposition before Congress, Sussmann said he “sought the meeting on behalf of an unnamed client who was a cybersecurity expert and had helped analyze the data.”
As part of his inquiry, Durham obtained billing records from Perkins Coie which allegedly show that when Sussmann “logged certain hours as working on the Alfa Bank matter,” he in fact billed the time to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
During that time, slip and fall attorney Marc Elias, another partner at Perkins Coie was serving as general counsel for the Clinton campaign. More on Elias in a minute to show how truly deep the Washington swamp is.
Sussmann’s attorneys claim that he was not in fact working on behalf of Clinton, instead claiming he was “representing the cybersecurity expert he mentioned to Congress.”
“They are also said to have argued that the billing records are misleading because Mr. Sussman was not charging his client for work on the Alfa Bank matter but needed to show internally that he was working on something,” the Times noted.
“He was discussing the matter with Mr. Elias and the campaign paid a flat monthly retainer to the firm, so Mr. Sussmann’s hours did not result in any additional charges.”
Breitbart notes that the cybersecurity expert who initially brought his concerns to Sussmann has hired a new attorney and wishes to remain anonymous. Steven Tyrell, the new attorney told the Times that his client is “an apolitical cybersecurity expert” who did not know Sussmann’s law firm had a relationship with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
“He sought legal advice from Michael Sussmann who had advised him on unrelated matters in the past and Mr. Sussmann shared that information with the F.B.I. on his behalf. He did not know Mr. Sussmann’s law firm had relationship with the Clinton campaign and was simply doing the right thing,” Tyrrell said.
The Times concluded that based on questions Durham had asked of witnesses in recent months, his ream is “pursuing a theory that the Clinton campaign used Perkins Coie to submit dubious information to the F.B. I. about Russia and Mr. Trump in an effort to gin up investigative activity to hurt his 2016 campaign.”

For more on the creepy Marc Elias and his ties not only to the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign, but who was also involved in the election hijinks from last November, we invite you to:
UNITED STATES- Enjoying all the havoc surrounding the 2020 election? How would you feel if the same Democratic lawyer behind the changes in voting laws across the country that has turned our election process into that of a third-world banana republic was also behind the Russian dossier to smear President Trump for the 2016 election?
Meet Marc Elias, who works for a Washington, DC law firm, Perkins Coie.
Elias also at one time represented one Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign.
He also served as general counsel for John Kerry’s presidential campaign in 2004, and works as counsel for the Democratic National Committee, and the party’s House and Senate campaign committees.
The Washington Post reported in 2017 that Elias and Perkins Coie hired Fusion GPS to conduct opposition “research” against President Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Moreover, many critics claimed that neither Clinton nor the DNC had properly reported the payments to Fusion GPS in campaign finance filings.
To refresh your memory, Fusion GPS hired disgraced former British spy Christopher Steele, who invented the collusion hoax which haunted the Trump campaign and then the first three years of his presidency.
That hoax was ultimately disproven, however cost millions in taxpayer money to fund the Mueller investigation which found no such collusion.
Part of Steele’s handiwork was a phony dossier, which led to the FBI obtaining FISA warrants even though the FBI knew the information was bogus. They were just attempting to fish for some dirt on President Trump and members of his administration.
Breitbart News reported as they have throughout the 2020 election cycle that Elias had demanded changes to voting procedures, such as vote-by-mail nationwide, and less restrictive voting rules, which he suggested in an article in The Atlantic—an anti-Trump pile of birdcage liner.
Lest you doubt that his suggestions had some less than honorable intentions, they were endorsed by Hillary Clinton.
Democrats found a great excuse to totally upend the election system—COVID-19. Under the excuse of trying to “limit the spread” and other such nonsense, Elias made several suggestions, including:
- Expand curbside voting to ALL ages (unknown if he really meant ALL ages, or just legal ages)
- Allow early voting on weekends
- Adopt vote-anywhere rules
- Create systems for voters to vote at non-peak times in order to reduce lines.
Elias started out by suing or pressuring battleground states, all run by Democrats, to change their voting rules, including Nevada and North Carolina (both of which are currently in the middle of the election hijinks).
In September, the New Republic glowed about Elias, calling him, “The Man Who Is Determined to Stop Trump From Rigging the Election.” Guess they didn’t say anything about Democrats rigging the election.
According to that article, by early September, Elias was involved in 32 election-related cases in 19 states. Most of that litigation surrounded his so-called “four pillars” of protecting vote by mail:
- providing prepaid postage from states,
- counting mail-in ballots as long as they’re postmarked on or before Election Day,
- making it harder for election officials to toss out ballots if the signature doesn’t exactly match the one on file,
- letting local groups gather sealed absentee ballots to submit on voters behalf, which in most circles is called ballot harvesting.
That practice was credited in 2018 with flipping some seven House seats in California from Republican to Democrat days after the election.
Elias filed lawsuits to expand early voting in North Carolina and Georgia ostensibly to prevent long lines.
In the ultimate display of hysterical irony, the article quoted Elias as saying:
“Donald Trump has shown a willingness to violate every norm that one associates with the president of the United States, and even the law in order to advance his political interests, and I expect that between now and the election we will continue to see him do everything he can to win reelection.”
Given the circus we’ve been exposed to this week, the only ones showing their “willingness to violate every norm” is the Democratic party.
As President Trump and the Republicans were rightly concerned about when Democratic-controlled states vastly expanded mail-in voting, including Nevada which implemented it a mere six-weeks before the election, we have seen what mass mail-in voting can become.
The Trump campaign rightly sued Pennsylvania, where all 67 election boards were using ballot drop boxes where people could just drop off their ballots, outside of the U.S. Postal Service. What could possibly go wrong with that?
Elias believes the legal system (his legal system) can “protect the integrity of American elections.”
If what we’ve seen the past few days is his definition of “integrity,” we’ll take a hard pass.
Meanwhile, last month Democrat Joe Biden let it “slip” that he had “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” Given his mental acuity, did he misspeak or did he inadvertently tell the truth?
For more on that, we invite you to:
This editorial is brought to you by a staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. – WASHINGTON D.C. – The concern over election fraud continues and Joe Biden seems to have (accidentally? mistakenly?) confirmed that it’s happening.
The Biden campaign is ensuring that they win at all costs. During another lackluster virtual campaign event, Joe Biden confirmed that “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of America politics” is in place.
Does this signify the very first time Biden is telling the truth to the American people? If so, beware America and take note that the videos with Biden saying this are out there and so far, they have not been removed; another first for Joe. The evidence is clear that the Biden campaign is doing everything possible to guarantee a win.
“…the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of America politics…”-Joe Biden, RNC Research
According to pollsters, President Trump is currently in position to win the state of Pennsylvania but very well could lose that victory due to voter fraud. This is supported by the Democrat Pennsylvania secretary of state and has the legal backing from a ruling by the state Supreme Court.
Voting rules have been altered in a last-minute attempt to seemingly support a Biden win. Signatures and postmarks are no longer required to vote, which means anything goes. Ballots will be counted even if the postmark is not clear.
And here is the big one, if no proof exists to show that the ballot was mailed after the date of the official election it still counts.
Clearly winning at all costs is the key to this election for the Biden campaign. The Trump campaign continues to battle against blue states who don’t care if this election is won justly and within the parameters of the law.
This is confirmed by the Trafalgar Group’s polling which is showing a clear victory for the President in Pennsylvania. Yet, they too caution that this win could be stolen due to election deception. If Biden’s first attempt at telling the truth is real, then we must brace for what is to come.
One of our many great freedom’s is at stake this November. Our right to participate in free and fair elections is slowly going by the wayside due to the underhanded maneuvers of the Biden campaign. The Biden campaign is using any and all means to steal this election from President Trump.
And while the accusations of conservative conspiracies continue to circulate, some suggest that the evidence is clear in this video of Biden about which side is truly engaging in dirty politics.
The news surrounding this election has not only been completely biased but censored to support the Biden campaign. This too is another attempt at fraudulent election trickery.
Perhaps this video should also be seen as an example of what the Biden campaign does not fear. Biden’s gaffes have some voters cringing and others ignoring his verbal gymnastics.
Here again, we see a tactic that is another stunt out of the Biden campaign playbook. The Come-on Man approach blended with his sarcastic one-liners tend to masquerade as charm and wit. But in reality, they too are a tool to blind voters of what’s truly happening.
Biden may have cleared the low bar set for him in the debate limbo, but his words continue to speak volumes. Voters must be more cautious than ever. Whether or not this is another example of Biden at his worst or perhaps we could claim it is his best since for once he might be telling the truth, the fact remains that something is happening with voting and that we must stay vigilant .
We watched President Trump debate the opposition and the moderators and now we are watching the President campaign not just for our vote, but for justice in our voting system.
If it hasn’t been clear until now with this video of Biden making this claim of cheating, then consider yourself warned. This election has the potential to be stolen by a candidate who has no shame in maneuvering rules and regulations to gain an advantage.
We will never know if this is merely another of Joe’s gaffs that gets passed off as humor or an oops moment, but we cannot overlook this and push it to the sidelines. This election is hanging in the balance and we the people need to fight for our rights and get out and vote.
Famous rapper Lil Pump goes all-in for Trump in profanity-laced tirade against Joe Biden’s tax plan
Rapper Lil Pump addressed his 17 million Instagram followers on Sunday night and gave a profanity-filled endorsement of President Donald Trump’s re-election bid and criticized Joe Biden’s proposed tax hike. Lil Pump said in a profanity-laden video endorsement: “All I gotta say is Trump 2020 bitch. F*ck I look like paying a extra 33 is tax for Biden, bitch ass n*gga. F*ck sleepy Joe … Trump 2020 bitch!”
At last week’s presidential debate, Biden promised to “eliminate the Trump tax cuts,” which would result in higher taxes for most Americans.
Breitbart News’ John Nolte noted: “The Trump tax cuts, officially known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), were a boon for the middle class in how they practically doubled the standard deduction for singles from $6,350 in 2017 to $12,000 in 2018; nearly doubled the standard deduction for married couples from $12,700 to $24,400; and bumped up the child tax credit up from $1,000 in 2017 to $2,000 in 2018.
“If you eliminate the Trump tax cuts, you slash those deductions on working people and families almost in half.
“That’s a huge tax increase because then, for example, a married couple will be paying federal taxes on $11,700 in income they weren’t paying under the TCJA. So, if your federal tax rate is, say, 20 percent, that’s an annual tax increase of around $2,300.”
For wealthier taxpayers earning more than $400,000, Biden’s tax hike would result in them paying a combined state and local income tax rate of over 60 percent.
Lil Pump’s endorsement follows that of 50 Cent, who recently slammed Biden’s tax rate, tweeting: “Yeah, i don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very,bad idea. “i don’t like it !”
Last week, 50 Cent also shared a screenshot on Instagram of Biden’s proposed tax rates for California, New Jersey and New York. The list also included tax rates for New York City, where he lives. Condemning Biden’s plan, which raises tax rates for corporations and those who make $400,000 or more per year, 50 Cent posted: “?WHAT THE FUCK! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, ?♂?FUCK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. ??♂I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya fucking mind. ?”

However, after facing much criticism for his endorsement of Trump over Biden, 50 Cent appears to have withdrawn that support, saying he “never liked” the president.
On Oct. 24, the rapper shared a video of his ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler’s appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in which she spoke about her ex’s support for the president. Along with that video, 50 Cent posted: “a what, another spin Fu*k Donald Trump, I never liked him. “for all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL @chelseahandler @jimmyfallon”

Handler’s comments about 50 Cent created controversy because she said: “So, he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent of taxes because he doesn’t want to go from being 50 Cent to 20 Cent, and I had to remind him that he was a black person so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he is worried about his own personal pocketbook.
“So, I haven’t heard back from him yet, but I am willing to, you know, seal the deal in more ways than one if he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald Trump. I might be willing to go for another spin, if you know what I’m talking about.”
Waka Flocka Flame is another rapper facing backlash for suggesting on an Instagram post that he thinks Trump is a better president than Obama. Waka Flocka, 34, made the revelation in the comments of a video posted by DJ Akademiks. A fan wrote that anyone who thinks Trump’s better at the job is a clown. Using the laughing emoji, Waka responded: “Guess I’m a clown.”
The public backlash was immediate after Akademiks’ followers noticed Waka Flocka’s admission. One fan asked, “U used to be so cool and progressive, wtf happened to you?”
Waka responded to the backlash by posting on his own Instagram account: “There are two types of people in this world: Those who resist change in favor of nostalgia and those who move with the times and create a better future.” In a separate post, Waka posted: “Understanding what reasons are big enough means you have to understand how people are motivated by one or two things: either avoiding a loss or acquiring a potential gain.”

Ice Cube was also caught in the crossfire when it was announced he helped Trump with his plan for “Black America.”
Ice Cube was criticized for helping the president and for doing so despite a perception by some that Trump might lose the election.
The Grio wrote that radio personality Charlamagne Tha God opined this shift in political affiliation among these singers may be because Trump reaches out to young black male voters, a demographic that he believes “never gets courted” during election campaigns.
During an appearance on CNN with Don Lemon, Charlamagne Tha God was asked about prominent black men who are endorsing or at the very least seem willing to work with Trump: “When it comes to those black people you see who maybe [are] showing support for Trump, I just think because Trump is actually talking to young black male voters.
“He’s directing ads towards them. They are a group that, you know, never gets courted. “I mean, black people don’t get courted either as a whole, but that old Democratic regime speaks to old black men and they think that everyone else in the black community, the black family is supposed to fall in line … they think the rest of us all speak the same language.” —
