Special Counsel John Durham has scored a victory over Hillary Clinton’s lawyer in court after a federal judge ruled against their motion to strike information from his February filing.
The federal judge presiding over the case of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann rejected his motion to “strike” the “factual background” section of Durham’s bombshell filing.
Sussmann’s legal team filed a motion demanding the court “strike” portions of Durham’s Feb. 11 filing because they claim it will “taint” a jury pool.
U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Christopher Cooper, an Obama appointee, rejected Hillary’s lawyer’s motion but did admonish Durham saying it wasn’t necessary to put all that detail in the factual background section.
“I didn’t see any link to areas that were relevant,” Judge Cooper said.
“I don’t know why the information was in there.
“I extend a presumption of good faith to all counsel, especially government counsel.
I’m not going to strike anything from the record.“Whatever effect the filing has had has already passed.”Sussmann’s legal team said Durham had “done more than simply file a document identifying potential conflicts of interest.” Slay the latest News for free! Sussmann’s lawyers said:“Rather, the special counsel has again made a filing in this case that unnecessarily includes prejudicial — and false — allegations that are irrelevant to his motion and to the charged offense, and are plainly intended to politicize this case, inflame media coverage and taint the jury pool.”Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew DeFilippis, a member of Durham’s team, said prosecutors wanted “a crystal clear factual record” for the whole case.He said: “We don’t want to get into that game. We’re being very careful.“We think everything we said in the motion was accurate.“I’d be hesitant to call out misinterpretations or misstatements that may be out there,” he said.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
