Trump Accuses Clinton Campaign Of Treason Following Reports They Paid To ‘Infiltrate’ White House Servers In Attempt To Link Him To Russia
Donald Trump accused the Hillary Clinton campaign of treason following reports the former First Lady’s lawyers paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers at Trump Tower and the White House while Trump was President, in an effort to help build the Russiagate narrative.
The accusations stem from a motion filed by Special Counsel John Durham on February 11th regarding potential conflicts of interest with regards to former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman.
Sussman was indicted back in September for allegedly lying to the FBI.
The Clinton campaign lawyer reportedly handed the FBI data obtained from cybersecurity researchers at a meeting in September 2016 which was supposed to have shown evidence of secret communications between then-candidate for president Trump and Russia.
The FBI would eventually determine “those concerns had no merit,” the New York Times reported.
Sussmann lied, according to the indictment, when he “stated to the General Counsel of the FBI that he was not acting on behalf of any client in conveying particular allegations concerning a Presidential candidate, when in truth, and in fact, as the defendant well knew, he was acting on behalf of specific clients, namely, Tech Executive-1 and the Clinton Campaign.”

Campaign Infiltrated the White House
The Durham filing is nothing short of an absolute bombshell, reiterating the work Sussman did with and on behalf of ‘Tech Executive-1’ and the ‘Clinton Campaign,’ the latter of whom he “billed … for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations.”
It alleges that Sussman and ‘Tech Executive-1’ met with another law partner who was serving as General Counsel to the Clinton campaign, whom sources have told Fox News was Marc Elias.
Elias, The Political Insider has previously reported, was identified by Hillary Clinton as having paid for the infamous and since-discredited Steele dossier that was used as a major piece of the Russiagate episode.

The filing outlines actions which at best are criminal in nature and which Durham intends to prove, including that the tech executive was able to see what websites were being viewed on computers at Trump Tower, Trump’s Central Park West apartment, and at the Executive Office of the President.
“Tech Executive-1 tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” Durham states.
“In doing so, Tech Executive-1 indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPs,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”
And what were they infiltrating in an attempt to create the narrative at the pleasure of the Clinton campaign?
The Tech Executive and his associates exploited domain name system (DNS) internet traffic pertaining to “(i) a particular healthcare provider, (ii) Trump Tower, (iii) Donald Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and (iv) the Executive Office of the President of the United States (EOP).”
It is nearly impossible to overstate what it means for someone to have spied on the Executive Office of the President. Conducting surveillance at Trump Tower and his apartment alone, not acting on behalf of any law enforcement or with permission from a federal court, for that matter, is criminal in nature.
What do you suppose would be the penalty for spying on an active White House for any other President?

Trump Accuses Clinton Camp of Treason
Former President Donald Trump has a pretty good idea of what the Clinton campaign lawyers should be charged with for their actions – treason.
“The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia,” he said.
“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution,” the statement, issued Saturday, reads.
“In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death.”
.@ThisWeekABC, @FaceTheNation & @CNNSotu all ignored the bombshell Durham report that the Clinton campaign spied on Trump while he was in the White House as President. @MZHemingway perfectly summarizes how this really IS WORSE than Watergate. pic.twitter.com/FR0BWQtkbR

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) suggested somebody involved in this activity needs to see prison time.
“The 2016 Clinton campaign was a criminal enterprise,” he tweeted. “Paying tech executives to infiltrate Trump servers [and] the White House. Time for someone to go to jail.”
Kash Patel, the former Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Defense, told Fox News that the Durham filing shows the Clinton campaign “orchestrate(d) a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection between President Trump and Russia.”
“The Hillary Clinton campaign and her lawyers masterminded the most intricate and coordinated conspiracy against Trump when he was both a candidate and later President of the United States,” he said, noting they were simultaneously peddling the bogus Steele dossier to the media.

The Clinton campaign engaged in concurrent Russia-related smears against Trump – one, a since debunked lie, the other, covert spying on Trump Tower and the White House – as a means to stop and then take down the President of the United States.
