Last month we told you about nearly 1,500 documents being withheld from John Durham by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC under the guise of Attorney-Client privilege.


Durham was arguing to force the disclosure of these documents in court and it appears he’s winning the battle:

DC EXAMINER – The judge in the case of Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann has agreed to review dozens of records currently withheld because of assertions of attorney-client privilege by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign to see if they have been improperly concealed.

The agreement is a win for special counsel John Durham in his case against Sussmann, who has been indicted on charges of concealing his clients, the Clinton campaign and tech executive Rodney Joffe, from FBI general counsel James Baker when he pushed eventually debunked claims of a secret backchannel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

Judge Christopher Cooper said Wednesday he would grant the government’s motion, arguing he did not believe it was breaking attorney-client privilege for him to review the records in dispute in an “in camera” setting, away from the public and the press.

Hillary for America, the DNC, and Perkins argue claims of attorney-client privilege should keep the records concealed and claim Fusion simply provided them legal services.

Durham is insisting those groups played a coordinated role in pushing false collusion claims.

The judge said he didn’t doubt Elias’s claims about Fusion being hired to provide legal advice but said that didn’t mean everything Fusion did in 2016 is covered by privilege. The judge said he would review the Joffe records too.

This is only a partial victory for Durham. As the Examiner points out, the judge will rule on the privilege claim after reviewing the documents, which they say are thirty internal Fusion emails and eight more which relate to Joffe and Fusion.

Let’s hope the judge gives Durham what he needs to prove his case. It’s long past time for these enemies of the state to be put behind bars.
