(RoyalPatriot.com )- Special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Trump-Russia prove made a new filing on Tuesday, and it made reference to an “active, ongoing criminal investigation.” Three times.
The filing was made in the case of Michael Sussmann, the Democratic National Committee lawyer who was charged back in September for making false statements to the FBI. He was found to have made a “materially false statement” to a federal official during the investigation into the false claims that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
The filing also laid out the argument for the special counsel’s attempt to add additional time to the discovery period before the case goes to trial.
“The court should grant the government’s request to permit the production of any residual discovery on or before March 18, 2022,” it reads.
Sussmann’s attorney also requested that all communications, including communications with the FBI, relating to the Russian bank and collusion allegations be handed over as part of the discovery process.
The multiple references to an active, ongoing criminal investigation is interesting, as it refers to matters that have not currently been charged. It could mean that Sussmann is facing more charges, and it could mean that more people were involved with his (alleged) efforts to subvert the FBI’s investigation into the Russian collusion hoax.
