Sky News host James Morrow says the American media is determined to “keep a lid” on revelations the Clinton campaign used computer hackers to spy on former president Donald Trump.
“According to a filing from special counsel John Durham last week – who is probing the activities for the Clinton campaign – lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to ‘infiltrate’ … servers belonging to Trump Tower, and later the White House, in order to establish an ‘inference’ and a ‘narrative’ to bring to government agencies, i.e. the FBI, linking Donald Trump to Russia,” he said.
Mr Morrow said this follows an indictment handed down last September against Washington lawyer Michael Sussmann for allegedly lying to the FBI, charges which he denies, about documents he brought to law enforcement officers claiming to show Trump was tied to the Russians.
“Importantly, what Sussmann didn’t disclose to the feds was that he was working for Clinton-connected law firm Perkins Coie, and was also representing … the Clinton campaign,” he said.
“Kinda seems like this would have been important because it further suggests that the real crime of 2016 wasn’t collusion between Trump and the Russians, but rather collusion on the part of the Clinton campaign and computer hackers they were using to try and build a narrative.
“Now that it’s the Clintons who are accused of the wiretapping and wrongdoing, too many in the press have gone strangely silent.”
