Lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower, and later the White House, in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to bring to government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia, a filing from Special Counsel John Durham says. …
Former President Trump reacted to the filing on Saturday evening, saying Durham’s filing “provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia.”
“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution,” Trump said. “In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death.”
Trump added: “In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this.”
Former chief investigator of the Trump-Russia probe for the House Intelligence Committee under then-Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., Kash Patel, said the filing “definitively shows that the Hillary Clinton campaign directly funded and ordered its lawyers at Perkins Coie to orchestrate a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection between President Trump and Russia.”
“Per Durham, this arrangement was put in motion in July of 2016, meaning the Hillary Clinton campaign and her lawyers masterminded the most intricate and coordinated conspiracy against Trump when he was both a candidate and later President of the United States while simultaneously perpetuating the bogus Steele Dossier hoax,” Patel told Fox News …
The anti-Trump dossier, authored by ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign through Elia’s law firm, Perkins Coie.
Patel added that [former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann] relayed the “false narrative” to U.S. government agencies “in the hopes of having them launch investigations of President Trump.”
Dirty, dirty tricks. But with the media doing its best to ignore leftist perfidy, and a justice bureaucracy filled with political allies, Clinton and Obama probably figured they could get away with it. The Durham investigation might just drag it out into the light, however.

Imagine if in June 1972 the journalists had ignored revelations that Nixon’s people had burgled and bugged the Democratic Party HQ. There would be no Watergate, and no presidential comeuppance. Which would act as a green light for more dirty tricks … like what’s next, stealing an election?
