Robby Mook throws Clinton allies under the bus, testifies Hillary ‘agreed’ to leak Trump-Russia allegation to media

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got a nasty surprise on Friday when her 2016 campaign manager, Robby Mook, testified during the Michael Sussmann trial that she “agreed” to leak allegations that the Trump Organization had a secret communications channel with Russia’s Alfa Bank.

During a cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFilippis, Mook was asked whether the campaign believed the allegations against former President Donald Trump and whether they had planned to release the evidence to the media, according to National Review.

He recounted that he was first briefed about the Alfa Bank issue by campaign general counsel Marc Elias, who at the time was a partner at the law firm Perkins Coie.

Mook testified that he was informed the data came from “people that had expertise in this sort of matter.”

Mook claimed under oath that he was not sure of the evidence’s credibility at the time. He justified the leak to the media, claiming the purpose of it was to get a reporter to “run it down” further and “vet it out.”

The Clinton acolyte asserted that he discussed the matter with senior campaign staff and then he “discussed it with Hillary as well” and that “she agreed to” hand the evidence over to the press.

The trial revolves around Michael Sussmann, who is a former partner at the Perkins Coie law firm. He allegedly lied to then-FBI general counsel James Baker in the fall of 2016 when he presented debunked evidence of Russian collusion with Trump.

Prosecutors are contending that Sussmann gave the purported evidence to Baker and tech executive Rodney Joffe. He ostensibly told Baker that he was handing over the evidence to “help the bureau.” That evidence included Domain Name System (DNS) data that allegedly showed frequent communications between servers associated with the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

Baker and Sussmann had known each other for years. He testified on Wednesday that he was “100 percent confident” that Sussmann asserted he wasn’t representing a client when they met.

“Jim — it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own — not on behalf of a client or company — want to help the Bureau. Thanks,” Sussmann reportedly texted Baker the day before they met, according to National Review.

Baker claims that he would have approached the meeting and subsequent investigation differently if he had known that Sussmann was representing the Clinton campaign.

FBI agent Scott Hellman said on Tuesday he was immediately skeptical of the data and accompanying analysis. Prosecutors obtained a record of a private chat that Hellman had with his colleagues that wondered whether the source of the evidence had a “mental disability.”

Franklin Foer, who writes for Slate, was pulled into the conspiracy when opposition research firm Fusion GPS, working on behalf of the Clinton campaign, pitched the story to him and other reporters.

“We certainly hoped that he would publish an article,” former Fusion GPS employee Lauren Seago testified in court.

Foer ran with the story, publishing an article on October 31, 2016, a little over a week before Election Day.

Following the surfacing of the Trump-Alfa Bank evidence, Hillary Clinton crowed over it on Twitter. That tweet was entered into evidence on Friday.

“Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank,” she tweeted at the time.

United States National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan was quoted by Clinton at the time after he remarked, “This could be the most direct link yet between Donald Trump and Moscow. Computer scientists have uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.”

He also said the “secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia.”

“This line of communication may help explain Trump’s bizarre adoration of Vladimir Putin and endorsement of so many pro-Kremlin positions throughout this campaign,” Sullivan’s 2016 statement added. “It raises even more troubling questions in light of Russia’s masterminding of hacking efforts that are clearly intended to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

He noted that they “can only assume federal authorities will now explore this direct connection between Trump and Russia as part of their existing probe into Russia’s meddling in our elections.”

Meanwhile, Twitter users have been mockingly sending condolences to Mook:

  1. With all this new info, you can bet that NOTHING will ever happen to Miss Piggy . Sad to say.

  2. I guess that what it really amounts to is that we can only hope that Mook has lots of currently paid life insurance for his family. Poor guy will likely pass away soon, possibly not of natural causes. So sad.

  3. It would be so satisfying to see the Clintons in prison. Never going to happen though. Nothing sticks to these teflon criminals. Maybe they will both just drop dead. Like so many others Mook is a dead man…soon.

  4. Baker claims that he would have approached the meeting and subsequent investigation differently if he had known that Sussmann was representing the Clinton campaign.

    This was a big fat lie by Baker. He knew exactly who Sussman was and why he was there. The FBI was used by the Clinton campaign not to investigate a crime, but to make one up so they could destroy President Trump. The Democrats in DC led by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer either bought into to the lie or were implicit in the cover up that everything was a lie. Once again I ask. Does the American people who call themselves Democrats really care about all the fraud and corruption going on in their party?

  5. Let’s face it. Either these “rats” are gonna tell the truth to save their OWN behinds OR Hillary will find some way to get “rid of them”.It all “started” with Vince Foster, found dead of an “apparent” suicide. Last that I read was the “body count” @ about 20. She’s backed by George Soros & his BIG BUCKS can do it. “OPEN” your mouth, AND YOU’RE gonna turn up DEAD! Let’s “SEE” just “what”happens in the Durham Trials. Will “they” RAT? or HOPE that Soros & Hillary will save their butts? INTERESTING! Who’s gonna commit suicide like Epstein in a jail cell, under “watch”. How convenient!

  6. Americans , let’s see who turns up dead .
    Killery is the prime murderer.
    Hang this bitch for Treason from a tree up side down at Gitmo ,once and for all.

  7. This is called survival! There are more in line. He asked for protection to tell the truth. No more “questionable” deaths. Notice there is a lot of cold cases associated with the Clinton’s. LET’S GO BRANDON!

  8. Hillary isn’t going to care if Robbie The Phag is part of a protected class.

  9. Good old fashion Arkansas Clinton-Cide right around the corner…
    Witness protection program won’t work , as the Clinton’s , Biden’s , and O’Bama’s control everything…
    Just ask the disinformation queen.. oh , wait , she GONE !!!!!
    Had enough YET , America ?

  10. At the time of this conspiracy, Trump was calling it a conspiracy….and those were called mean tweets for saying so.

    Yeah…it is always mean to call a liar a liar.

  11. Why is it, when democrats admit to something that every thinking person already knew, it’s sucks the oxygen out of the room. Because seldom do you hear truth from a democrat, thru an admission of guilt. Now Hil, the Great White, will show us her latest dance. This ought to be good.

    1. She’s been dancing with the Devil for so long, NOTHING new is coming out !
      We all know the facts , but the FACTS just don’t seem to matter with this crowd of Clinton’s, O’Bama’s , Biden’s, etc.
      Time for ALL of them to pay the price for teh screwing of America that they are all complicit in…
      Had enough YET , America ?

  12. I hope they have enough trees to HANG these Bastards for high treason in
    Gitmo .

  13. Why would a constitutional co nservative write a piece with a title that makes the man being questioned under oath sound like a turncoat for telling the truth, and makes it sound like one of the absolutely worst women in earth is somehow being used as a scapegoat.

  14. I guess this article will be the end of mook,,,poor guy committed Clintoncide,,shot in the back of the head 4 times with his hands duct taped behind him,,,,FJB,,,,,

  15. The Clinton Crime Family under scrutiny, expect an Pandemic of Suicide, Midnight Robberies gone wrong and Accidents in upcoming months.

  16. My condolences to Robby Mook and his family on his impending suicide/accident.

  17. Weird to know all this stuff for 5 years-ish and have media outlets (and Durham!) going all ga-ga on this new information! Let’s move to Seth Rich and the ‘DC Metro/FBI inactive investigation’. Those ‘hacking efforts that are clearly intended to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign.’ might show up there, but, oh-no, that’s not Russian hacking’ is it? WikiLeaks repeatedly said they refuse Russian hack sources and Snowden, Chelsea and, yes, Seth are strong evidence of that truth.

  18. The problem with throwing Her Thighness, Queen Hillary, under the bus is that when the favor is returned she will be behind the wheel of a real bus.

  19. 😮 He might want to disappear somewhere, off grid for awhile, maybe hire some body guards to go with him. If not Vegas should start wagering on how long he has left. 

    1. Just read about how long it took to find a body in a barrel in Lake Mead. He might want to think twice about traveling to the west.

  20. Even if testimonies establish the Hil and Bill were behind all of the anti Trump scams, will they pay a price for their evil deeds? Methinks not….

    1. That’s up to us. There IS NO LAW IN AMERICA. As the traitors can ignore laws, so can we, the people, and street justice on a massive nationwide scale is overdue. Liberte au mort!

  21. Has the NY Times written his obituary yet due to his impending “suicide”?
