(Liberty Bell) – On Friday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch revealed that US District Judge James E Boasberg denied efforts by the FBI to keep secret records about a Clinton lawyer meeting with FBI lawyer James Baker in relation to the Trump-Russia hoax investigation.
In October 2018, Baker, now a former FBI lawyer, testified that he had received a packet of information from Michael Sussmann, a law partner at Perkins Coie as well as a former DOJ lawyer.
Sussmann was, at the time, targeting the 2016 Trump campaign. Perkins Coie was the same law firm who represented the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign and was used by Clinton as a conduit to funnel money to pay for the notorious phony Russia dossier.
In October of 2018, former FBI lawyer James Baker testified that he received a packet of information from Michael Sussmann, a Perkins Coie law partner (and former DOJ lawyer) targeting Trump during the 2016 presidential election.
In his testimony, he also told lawmakers that Sussmann had shared some of the damaging information this scheme had alleged against Trump to the media.
Current FBI Director Christopher Wray has done little to thwart the FBI-Deep State efforts to hide the truth about Hillary Clinton’s crimes.
However, as JW reported, a federal judge blocked the FBI/DOJ from keeping these communications secret.
From Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch announced today that U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg denied a Justice Department effort to block the release of any communications between former FBI General Counsel James Baker and Michael Sussmann, a Perkins Coie law partner and former DOJ attorney, who reportedly met with Baker to share information targeting Donald J. Trump during the presidential campaign. While at Perkins Coie, Sussmann represented the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the time Perkins Coie secretly paid for the development of the anti-Trump dossier the DOJ used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. The court specifically rejected the FBI’s argument that it needed to protect the “privacy” of Hillary Clinton’s lawyer.
Judge Boasberg ruled: “[A]ny risk of invasion [of privacy] evaporated once Baker publicly testified that he had received documents from Sussmann, as well as met with and spoken to him on multiple occasions in 2016.”
“The FBI is corruptly trying to keep secret documents to protect those behind the Russiagate smears of President Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Two federal courts have now rejected the FBI’s desperate attempts to hide the details of its anti-Trump conspiracy with Hillary Clinton’s Fusion GPS-FBI spy operation. Why is Director Wray allowing the corrupt cover up the FBI’s Russiagate collusions with the Clinton gang?”
FBI has now lost TWICE in federal court in its scheming to hide FBI-Clinton gang conspiracy to try to destroy @realDonaldTrump. Why is Director Wray allowing the corrupt cover up the FBI’s Russiagate collusion with the Clinton gang? https://t.co/B9cqFXhu9J https://t.co/GEmdUecYE2
