Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan’s part in pushing fake claims about the Trump campaign colluding with Russia is now under new scrutiny after a new special counsel court documents suggests those fake claims were created by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
On Oct. 31, 2016, around a week before the election of 2016, Sullivan, who was in the employment of the Clinton campaign, pushed a report “revealing the Trump Organization had a hidden server registered to the Trump Tower that was covertly sending messages to Russia.”
The Slate report said the cyber experts had found a secret server connecting the Trump Organization to the Russian Alfa Bank.
Sullivan’s role in supporting these claims is now getting fresh scrutiny after a new court filing by John Durham revealed allegations that an attorney who was with the law firm working with Clinton’s campaign had partnered with a tech executive to get the evidence for these claims.
Durham is saying that Michael Sussmann, who is a former attorney with Perkins Coie, had partnered with the tech company executive Rodney Joffe to get data on the Donald Trump presidential campaign and even the White House to make the basis of these claims.
Donald Trump Jr. recently quoted Sullivan’s comment on twitter, urging reporters to ask Sullivan about his part in pushing these fake claims.
“Biden’s national security adviser was deeply involved in the actions for which Durham is now issuing indictments. Any good reporter would be demanding the White House and Press Secretary answer questions on this,” he said.
Republican Congressman Jim Jordan (OH) tweeted, “Jake Sullivan spread the Russia hoax. He understood it was a lie. He now is inside the Biden White House.”
Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn (TN) said that Sullivan should give his resignation or be fired if Durham’s allegations turned out true.
She also questioned why he had not commented about his role.
GOP Study Committee leader Jim Banks (IN) said that if Durham’s revelations are true, Sullivan should get removed from his role.
“Nobody who spied on the White House should serve in the White House. Jake Sullivan is a very partisan person and if he had a role in Clinton’s illicit spying, he should get removed from office and be kept responsible,” Banks said to the DailyMail.com.
