Clinton Breaks Silence On Durham’s SpyGate Probe: ‘A Fake Scandal’ Created By ‘Trump & Fox’
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton finally broke her silence over bombshell findings by special counsel John Durham claiming her campaign paid a tech firm to penetrate and monitor White House servers while Donald Trump was president.
And who does Clinton cite to “debunk” Durham’s findings? The venerable fashion tabloid Vanity Fair!
“Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it’s a day that ends in Y,” Clinton tweeted on Wednesday.
“The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie. For those interested in reality, here’s a good debunking of their latest nonsense,” she added, linking to a Vanity Fair article claiming Clinton’s campaign “did not” spy on Trump.
In the article Clinton provided, titled “YOU’LL NEVER BELIEVE IT BUT HILLARY CLINTON DID NOT, IN FACT, SPY ON TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE“, Vanity Fair writer Bess Levin says Clinton didn’t spy on Trump because “John Durham nor anyone else for that matter had actually provided evidence of any such crime, let alone even suggested it.”
What Levin doesn’t mention is that Durham’s criminal grand jury investigation is ongoing, much of the information he collected is classified, and his office hasn’t leaked any details of the evidence collected except what’s been revealed in indictments like that of Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann or court filings like the one Durham released last week.
Levin went on to reference quotes by attorneys claiming that “cybersecurity researchers were investigating malware in the White House, not spying on the Trump campaign,” omitting the fact that these “researchers” were also monitoring internet traffic from Trump Tower and another Trump residence in New York.
Notably, one critical piece of evidence provided to Durham and declassified by Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe in October 2020 was a handwritten letter by former CIA Director John Brennan explaining how the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory was generated by none other than Hillary Clinton to “vilify” Trump ahead of the 2016 election.
“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED],” Brennan notes read. “CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”
Don’t expect Vanity Fair to point out that whopper of evidence.
Clinton’s response comes a day after she ignored a reporter’s questions about Durham’s explosive allegations that her campaign enlisted a tech firm to monitor internet data from Trump Tower and the White House to create a “narrative” tying then-candidate Trump to Russia.
