Durham: DNC Lawyer Marc Elias Has Given Grand Jury Testimony

•, by Techno Fog

Today, Special Counsel John Durham provided a "discovery Update" to the court in the Michael Sussmann case. In this filing, available here, he disclosed that his team has obtained a tremendous amount of information ranging from a variety of sources – including Perkins Coie, the Hillary Clinton Campaign, and former DNC/Clinton lawyer Mark Elias.

While Sussmann has been charged with giving false statements to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker regarding the Alfa Bank/Trump Organization hoax (background here), Durham notes that the "Government also maintains an active, ongoing criminal investigation of" Sussmann's conduct.

In other words, Sussmann's criminal conduct likely is not limited to false statements. There is more. If we are to make an educated guess, it may have to do with the conspiracy to accuse the Trump Organization of having secret back-channel communications with Alfa Bank. We discussed the potential for a conspiracy charge here.

Now, to the evidence. Durham and his team have secured grand jury testimony from the following individuals:

Former Perkins Coie partner, and DNC/Hillary Clinton lawyer Marc Elias.

Former FBI General Counsel James Baker

Current CIA employees

Durham and his team have completed interviews of the following individuals:

Former FBI General Counsel James Baker

More than 24 other current and former FBI employees.

Current and former employees of the CIA and DARPA.

12 Employees of the "internet companies" referenced in the Sussmann indictment.

The former chairman of DNC/Clinton law firm Perkins Coie.

A former employee of the Clinton campaign.

Current and former employees of Georgia Tech (involved in the Alfa Hoax).
