Liz Cheney’s Husband Tied to Hillary Clinton’s Efforts to Spy on Trump
Sussman retained Lathan & Watkins LLP as his legal counsel
Following the explosive reports that Hillary Clinton's campaign hired a law firm that used sensitive government data to spy on President Trump, there are now new revelations connecting Republican Rep. Liz Cheney's husband to the scandal.
As Neon Nettle reported:
Special Counsel John Durham filed a motion in federal court alleging that Hillary Clinton’s political allies spied on Donald Trump as a presidential candidate and as the president using cell phone data.
The motion was filed in the case of former Clinton Campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who was charged with lying to the FBI about whether he was working for the campaign after telling the FBI about the link between Trump and Russia, which turned out to be untrue.
Sussman retained Lathan & Watkins LLP as his legal counsel.
It has now been revealed that Liz Cheney’s husband, Phillip Perry, is a partner as Lathan & Watkins LLP.
The law firm also represented the Clinton campaign as they were presenting disinformation to the FBI to get them to investigate President Trump, according to Techno Fog.
“On February 11, 2022, Durham filed the Government’s Motion to Inquire into Potential Conflicts of Interest in the Michael Sussmann case. Read it here.
“As you might recall, Sussmann was charged with giving false statements to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker regarding the interests he was representing in pushing to the FBI the Alfa Bank/Trump Organization hoax."
More background information on the Sussmann indictment can be found here.
The basis for the latest motion is that Sussmann’s current counsel, Latham & Watkins LLP (Latham) might have a conflict of interest because Latham previously represented Perkins Coie and Mark Elias “in this investigation.”
It is alleged that Latham “likely possesses confidential knowledge about Perkins Coie’s role in, and views concerning, Sussmann’s past activities.”
As 100PercentFedUp reports:
There might also be a conflict because Latham was representing both the Clinton Campaign and Hillary for America in the Special Counsel’s investigation.
Durham observes that Latham’s duties to these former clients “might cause its interests to diverge from those of [Sussmann].”
Not only has Cheney’s husband’s law firm represented the Clinton campaign, but they have also represented the Chinese military and Chinese intelligence agencies.
Cheney identified China as a “generational” threat to the United States, while her husband profited from work his law firm is doing to represent their military and intelligence agencies.
As Neon Nettle reported:
The news of the links Cheney’s husband has to the CPP comes after the RINO Republican claimed she stands against Chinese aggression.
According to Just The News, Philip Perry, Cheney’s husband, works for a firm with ties to China, resulting in millions in deals with entities linked to the Chinese military, intelligence, and security services.
“Philip Perry’s law firm was cashing in on legal and lobbying work that his employer — Latham & Watkins (L.W.), one of the largest law firms in the world — was doing for a host of Chinese companies, some of which were involved in the kind of activity that Cheney was warning had to be stopped,” the outlet reported.
