Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has somehow wriggled her way out of trouble for decades. This time, her luck may finally be running out.
House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik is calling for “criminal prosecution” for Clinton and others involved in the scheme to spy on former President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, according to Fox News. The information came from a report Friday from Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation.
“I have worked from the beginning to expose the Democrats’ Russia collusion hoax,” Stefanik said Tuesday in an email to Fox Digital News Digital. “National Democrats, Hillary Clinton and current Biden appointees were at the center of the biggest criminal political corruption story in our lifetime,” she said.
“There must be criminal prosecution for this illegal spying,” Stefanik charged. “If they can do this to a sitting president, they can do it to any American,” she continued.
Durham’s report states that “Campaign Lawyer-1” was “serving as General Counsel to the Clinton Campaign.” Sources have confirmed the identity of that person is Marc Elias, who was employed at the Perkins Coie law firm.
Previously, the investigation revealed another campaign attorney, Michael Sussman, from the same firm was responsible for the FBI launching the Russiagate investigation. Sussmann had turned over supposed evidence against Trump even though it was part of the campaign’s opposition research.
However, Sussmann didn’t reveal that he was being paid by the candidate and acted as if he were a disinterested party. He has since been charged with making false statements to an FBI agent though that’s little consolation considering that Trump spent the first part of his presidency defending against these allegations.
The walls are closing in around Clinton as the scheme to help her destroy her opponent in the 2016 election comes to light. She may not personally have had knowledge or given the orders, but her reputation will be tarnished just the same — and she can’t worm her way out of it this time.
