The mainstream media reported very little about the actual testimony in the trial of Michael Sussmann. That might have been by design. There were a number of things that were mentioned in the testimonies of various witnesses that remind us of previous events where questioning those events was considered a “conspiracy theory.” It seems as if many of those “conspiracy theories” might need reexamination.
On Thursday, The Epoch Times posted an article about some of that testimony.
The article reports:
A lawyer representing Democrats proposed alterations to an FBI statement on the hacking of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to avoid undermining the narrative from his clients, according to emails released as part of the trial of former Hillary Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann.
FBI officials in mid-2016 were drafting a statement regarding an alleged intrusion into the DCCC network and sent the draft to Sussmann, a lawyer representing the DCCC, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and other Democrats.
Jim Trainor, assistant director for the FBI Cyber Division, wrote to Sussmann on July 29, 2016: “Michael—our press office is once again getting a ton of calls on the DCCC matter. A draft response is provided below. Wanted to get your thoughts on this prior to sending out.”
Sussmann zeroed in on the first sentence, which he said seemed to undermine what the DCCC was saying about the reported intrusion.
“The draft you sent says only that the FBI is aware of media reports; it does not say that the FBI is aware of the intrusion that the DCCC reported. Indeed, it refers only to a ‘possible’ cyber intrusion and in that way undermines what the DCCC said in its statement (or at least calls into question what the DCCC said),’” Sussmann said.
Sussmann proposed changing the press release from saying the FBI is aware of reporting on “a possible cyber instruction involving the DCCC” to saying the bureau “is aware of the cyber intrusion involving the DCCC that has been reported in the media and the FBI has been working to determine the nature and scope of the matter.”
There has been speculation that the intrusion into the DCCC came from Seth Rich, who was later murdered in Washington. Part of the basis for that speculation is the fact that the computer gurus who understand how data is transferred and how fast data is transferred have stated that the only way the large amount of data involved could have been transferred would be through a fire stick by someone on the inside.
