Ex-Clinton Advisor: Hillary’s Indictment Will Follow Durham’s Sussmann Charges
'It might be that we’ve finally caught up with Hillary'
Former Bill Clinton adviser Dick Morris has weighed in on John Durham indicting former Hillary Clinton attorney Michael Sussmann.
During an interview on New York WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable," Morris predicted that the indictment of Sussmann would lead to Hillary Clinton’s indictment.
“[I]t might be that we’ve finally caught up with Hillary,” Morris proclaimed.
“We don’t know yet, but I’m going to probe it, and I think that there’s some chance now.”
“Durham just indicted a guy named [Michael] Sussmann … for lying to the FBI," he said.
"Sussmann worked for the law firm of Perkins Cole."
"That was the law firm that Hillary‘s campaign hired that conducted this stuff and fabricated the [Steele] dossier and all of that,” he continued.
“And he lied to the FBI and did not reveal that Hillary and Hillary’s campaign was paying him.'
"That he was their employee; that he was acting on their behalf.”
“Hillary was basically his client, and he did not reveal that to the FBI, so he is under indictment for that,” Morris added.
Host John Catsimatidis asked if Sussmann's indictment was a “soft indictment” as a strategy to derive more information.
But Morris said the indictment happened because the statute of limitations was about to run out before declaring the trial “leads to Hillary.”
“The real point here is that this is the trail that leads to Hillary,” he said.
“The point is that that led to two years of investigating and almost impeaching Trump, and it was totally phony,” Morris added.
Morris said Clinton could no longer escape her misdeeds because she was no longer in power.
Sussmann was indicted for allegedly lying to the FBI in 2016.
Neon Nettle reported that Durham discovered that in a 2016 meeting, Sussmann told Baker he was not representing any client when he sought the meeting.
But in a 2017 deposition before Congress, Sussmann testified he did seek the meeting on behalf of an unnamed client specializing in cybersecurity.
Prosecutors say if Sussmann had initially admitted his meeting with Baker, the FBI might have taken more steps before investigating and might have allocated resources differently.
CNN reported on Friday that Sussmann pleaded not guilty in federal court following his indictment on charges.
