#1 

Maybe the DC swamp just decided better to allow a STAGED Trial situation?

In order to be able to claim vindication based on a predetermined innocent outcome?

#6 This just in: On the first day of the trial of Hillary’s lawyer, Michael Sussmann, the Durham team’s opening statement and its first witnesses attempted to walk a fine line to show that the Democratic National Committee lawyer used his unique position to get the FBI to investigate Trump for secretly communicating with a Russian bank to get to Putin.
Durham’s team argues that the FBI was duped into treating seriously the Trump-is-a-Russian-secret-agent-with-super-secret-ties-to-a-Moscow-bank story that the Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer brought to it. They will argue in court that if the FBI had known it was Hillary’s oppo-research, they would have dismissed it out of hand.
I hope ya'll don't have high blood pressure. This whole thing is a joke.

#7 /\ They will argue in court that if the FBI had known it was Hillary’s oppo-research, they would have dismissed it out of hand.

Accepted the Sussmann (Clinton operative) reporting without checking his sources did they? Once the BS was discovered, the FBI continued to pursue (doubled down) on the issue.

They're sticking with their "monitoring Carter Page" (D.C. intelligence community insider) and sometimes Trump Campaign worker story.

Sorry, I'm not buying any of it.

#9 They might get Sussman but the crooked FBI is in the clear.

#10 A bridge too far, and the deep state sees, once again, proof that nothing happens if you are inside the swamp, even if you commit sedition, as long as its conservatives you are thwarting.

#11 Notably,Elias mentioned Jake Sullivan as someone at the Clinton Campaign who knew about the Trump/Russia research (though there is uncertainty as to whether Sullivan knew about Fusion’s activities). Elias would give the campaign these updates.

A brief aside: Jake Sullivan’s wife is Margaret Goodlander - who serves as counsel to Attorney General Merrick Garland. We understand that she has not recused herself from anything having to do with the Special Counsel’s investigation. We further understand that Goodlander is keeping close tabs on Durham’s investigation. We’ll report on that down the road…

Anyway, Elias also testified that the Clinton Campaign paid them (Perkins Coie) a “flat fee” for their legal services. Why is this important? Because it explains why Sussmann would block bill the Clinton Campaign (see tweet below). (“Block billing” is having a multi-hour entry with a generalized description. Example: “6.5 hours on confidential project.) For flat fee work, attorneys are generally allowed block billing because the client isn’t paying the hourly rate.
