FBI Gives Fishy Response to Inquiries over Shared Perkins Coie Workspace

'In certain instances, the FBI coordinates with non-government, third-party entities, such as law firms, that represent service providers which receive these classified Court orders...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) In the immediate aftermath of Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann’s not-guilty verdict from a federal trial in Washington, DC, two conservative congressmen dropped a bombshell that Sussmann’s lawfirm, Perkins Coie, had furnished the FBI with office space.

The discovery from Reps. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, suggested the Sussmann trial may be but the opening bid in special counsel John Durham’s larger effort to indict top former FBI brass in a seditious conspiracy to undermine former President Donald Trump.

The office space has reportedly been available to the FBI since 2012, according to Red State.

After receiving the information from a whistleblower and confirming it with the law firm, Gaetz and Jordan sent a letter to director Christopher Wray demanding an explanation.

“We have learned that since March 2012, the FBI approved and facilitated a Secure Work Environment at Perkins Coie’s Washington, D.C. office, which continues to be operational,” the letter stated.

The congressmen noted that the lawfirm had confirmed the arrangement in a letter dated May 25.

Moreover, they discovered that the recently acquitted Sussmann, who had been charged with lying to the FBI, had access to the Secure Work Environment until some point in 2021 and had “limited supervised access thereafter.”

It remains unconfirmed whether Sussman, who resigned in September 2021, had access after he left the law firm.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, an FBI spokesperson acknowledged that the workspace existed but did not mention Perkins Coie directly.

“The FBI complies with the law and security policies and works with the Department of Justice to serve classified, Court-authorized legal process necessary to support national security investigations,” said the spokesperson.

“In certain instances, the FBI coordinates with non-government, third-party entities, such as law firms, that represent service providers which receive these classified Court orders,” the statement continued. “This includes providing access to private attorneys which represent the service providers in satisfaction of their legal rights.”

The bureau also attempted to justify that existence, explaining that all classified documents stored at the office were properly secured.

“As part of this, the FBI ensures that any storage of classified orders meets stringent security protocols required for such documents,” said the spokesperson.

As with many statements from the deep-state, however, it is often what a statement omits that can be as significant as what it says.

But at the very least, it confirms the suspicious of many that Sussmann’s charge of lying to the FBI failed on a technicality because the FBI was well aware of the lie and may have played a more integral role in fabricating the conspiracy, which Hillary Clinton personally approved.

Gaetz gave Wray a June 15 deadline for answers, and explained that the relationship between the two entities raises some serious questions.

Gaetz has also requested access to records related to the space, a list of people who had access to it and answers as to why and when the workspace was approved.
