(John Ransom, Headline USA) Giving her best “what-difference-does-it-make” shrug, a rumpled Hillary Clinton avoided questions, as she arrived to speak at the New York Democrat convention, about whether she paid to have people spy on Donald Trump in order to falsely accuse Trump of collusion with Russia in the 2016 election.
“Hillary Clinton refused to answer questions about allegations that her allies spied on the Trump campaign as the controversy continued to engulf her Tuesday,” reported the Daily Mail.
“Clinton continued to stonewall questions later the same day as she and Chelsea emerged from a Filipino restaurant in Queens, after approximately three hours during which they appeared to be filming.”
Citing statements from the Clinton campaign and Hillary’s own tweets, Kash Patel, an attorney and a former Defense Department official said new information revealed by special prosecutor John Durham “definitively shows that the Clinton campaign directly funded and ordered its lawyers at Perkins Cole to orchestrate a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection between President Trump and Russia,” according to the National Desk.
Durham recently filed a motion that revealed that the Clinton campaign “paid a tech firm to infiltrate Trump Tower and later White House servers to make Trump-Russia link,” said the Daily Mail.
A tech executive only referred to by number in the Durham filing allegedly used his access to the Trump campaign, and later the White House, to try to prove secret communications between Trump and the Kremlin through a Moscow bank, according to NBC News.
The suspicions, which involved internet traffic with Russia’s Alfa-Bank, were later determined to be unfounded.
Complicating matters for Democrats is that President Joe Biden’s present national security advisor, Jake Sullivan, was a spokesman for Clinton at the time. Sullivan’s contemporaneous statements during the 2016 campaign add fuel to the fire that feeds suspicion that the Clinton campaign was involved in an illegal espionage operation against a rival campaign.
“Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank,” said Sullivan on the eve of the election, according to the Washington Examiner.
“This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia… This line of communication may help explain Trump’s bizarre adoration of Vladimir Putin.”
Or it may explain why Hillary began accusing Trump of collusion with the Russians against her in a campaign she was supposed to win, even before she lost.
