The Sussman Trial

This is new ground for me, so I expect to be terrible at first and get better over time. Please shop here and leave a comment when you can. Also send feedback to me.


When Americans think of government corruption, it is government officials getting the public’s money confused with their own money. Maybe a politician takes bribes to do the bidding of someone with interests before the government. It can also be a civil servant taking bribes to do someone a favor. Alternatively, it can be the government insiders colluding with outside players so that the insiders make money from a government contract or a government program.

While those are examples of corruption, the problem goes beyond people in government stealing from the public. In the general sense, corruption is an indifference to the rules that supposedly govern society. The corrupt do not see the rules as limits on their behavior, but as obstacles to overcome in pursuit of their goals. They have no respect for or allegiance to the spirit of the law. More important, they have no respect for the morality that lies behind the law.

This contempt for the spirit of the law is on display in the ongoing trial of Clinton lawyer Michael Sussman. He is charged with lying to the FBI about his relationship with the Clinton campaign. He brought the phony Russian collusion hoax material to the FBI claiming he got it as part of his work on cyber security. According to the FBI, he said he was not representing anyone with regards to the issue. In truth he was working for the Clinton campaign on exactly this issue.

Charging someone with lying to the government is usually a way to leverage a lawyer or public official into cooperation. The charge itself is relatively minor, but it has serious career consequences, so it is a good tool to use on a lawyer. In this case, it appears the prosecutor is using it as a way to build a larger narrative to explain how the biggest hoax in American history was perpetrated on the public. This trial provides the general plot structure for the rest of the story that will come later.

That plot structure is this. Sussman was running a group of dirty tricks people for the Clinton campaign back in 2016. Using a lawyer for this provides them with some confidentiality in the event things go wrong. Sussman hired a group called Fusion GPS and some other freelance operators to manufacture dirt on Trump. They would then feed this to reporters on their payroll. Franklin Foer is someone they used to put these fake stories into the mainstream media.

The way this fraud worked is Sussman went to the FBI with fake documents alleging a secret channel between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. As a partner in a connected Washington law firm, he gets priority access to senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice. Meanwhile, others are planting the story with their people in the media with the claim the FBI is already looking into it. The media hacks then call the FBI for comment and add that to the story.

There is nothing new here. Political actors have been using friends in the media since the dawn of the printing press. The reason we have the Sally Hemmings fable is that opponents of Jefferson slandered him in the media of the time with the claim that he was having sex with his slaves. In this age, when all of the mass media is in the pocket of the uniparty, the fake news is mostly about promoting the aims of the party and distracting people from that which is bad for the party.

An interesting wrinkle in this case is that Sussman got the fake documentation for the Trump-Russia link from one of the goons on his dirty tricks squad. That trickster was a person named Rodney Joffe, who was some sort of IT consultant. He was the guy who allegedly created the fake documentation. He was also an FBI informant, according to the various filings in the case. This raises an obvious question about who actually concocted the Russian collusion hoax.

That may be the point of this trial and the long running Durham investigation, which promises to continue for many years. By pinning the scandal on Sussman, they can also pin the scandal on Hillary Clinton. That serves the interests of the uniparty by making sure she does not run again on 2024. More important, it paints the FBI as the innocent party, hoodwinked by those dastardly Clinton people. Sussman has been paid to take the fall, which is why he is not cooperating.

That may seem a bit Machiavellian, until you remember that the senior staff of the FBI were engaged in wholesale spying on the Trump campaign. There is no question that two dozen or so characters involved in the Spygate scandal defrauded the courts and violated their oath of office. One guy was charged in that for doctoring an e-mail that was used to defraud the court. Otherwise, the rest have sailed off into lives of comfort, having done their part for the cause.

Then you have the Mueller investigation. This was engineered by people in the Department of Justice and the FBI who knew at the time that the claims about Russian collusion were manufactured by the Clinton campaign. That is something else that has come out in the Sussman trial. The FBI knew the documents provided were fake and they knew the source of them. Since the source was a confidential FBI informant, it is possible that the real source was the FBI all along.

All of this sounds like the grubby political intrigue that has distinguished the Clinton era of politics, but it also highlights the depravity of the political system. Across the upper reaches of the political system is a deep contempt for the rules. The claims made about Nixon fifty years ago have now become the culture of Washington. The charge against Nixon was that he corrupted the institutions for personal gain. Today the institutions corrupt anyone unfortunate enough to have contact with them.

Corruption has consequences. Once a ruling class stops respecting its own rules, the rest of society soon follows. For example, it was the Russophobia created by the Clinton dirty tricks campaign that opened the door for the neocons. Five years of demonizing Putin and Russia to attack Trump made it easy for the usual reptiles to launch this pointless war against Russia. Every time you buy gas or food, you can thank Hillary Clinton for the sticker shock.

Another example to consider is the media. One of the things revealed in the trial thus far is the degree of collusion between members of the elite press and the people running the dirty tricks campaign. Fusion GPS was founded by journalists. None of the “reporters” who participated in this hoax have been punished. Many of them have been given awards for their “reporting” on the story. The media is every bit as mobbed up as the people on the political class.

One final note on the Sussman trial. The judge in the case is connected to the FBI gangsters exposed during Spygate. He also used to pal around with Sussman when they were learning how to be crooks together. The jury has several Clinton donors, to make sure the jury remains impartial. For those old enough to remember, the trial now has this level of objectivity and probity. Anyone thinking Sussman gets convicted should calibrate their expectations accordingly.

The lack of public interest in this case is due, in part, to the media organs of the party being told to ignore it. The bigger reason is that the staggering level of corruption in the ruling class has been normalized. People are no longer shocked or offended by the lying from Washington. It is the rare times when someone speaks honestly that grabs the attention of the public. The Sussman trial confirms the obvious. America is a kleptocracy run by a thoroughly corrupt ruling elite.

I think the most general and widely-applicable definition of corruption – whether a person, or an institution – is related to motivation rather than methods. Corruption is when a person or institution is motivated by something other-than their proper function. So a scientist is corrupt when he is motivated by salary and career status, instead of the truth. A lawyer is corrupt when motivated by wealth rather than justice. A national politician is corrupt when motivated by globalism rather than the best interests of his country. An artist if he pursues fame instead of beauty. An economist if he argues… Read more »

Several good observations there. The only criticism I offer that I think you over-simplify people’s motives. We are complex creatures and very rarely, if ever, will a sole drive (instinct, motivation, call it as you like) be operating at a single time. Why can’t the average attorney be motivated by both greed and the desire to service justice, which more realistically he might qualify as “providing the best legal representation I can to my client”? It’s even more likely he has additional instincts active, perhaps as mundane as the desire to get home and eat dinner with his family after… Read more »

The problem isn’t just that government is corrupt. It’s that there’s more of it than ever. As a percentage of the economy, this is a deeply socialist country, especially by historical standards. If we actually pid for all of it, taxation would be well into European levels and even more, and will be in the not too distant future when the bond market fails. . The government of the late 19th Century was arguably much more corrupt, but it was a tiny fraction of the economy. One could live day to day, and not even think about it. Today, even… Read more »

Welp, American history has been one big Christian revival, which in turn, was probably an attempt to regain what was lost after breaking from Rome. At this point we’ve been too far estranged and it seems to have ended where they all end, Babylon.

Um, Z, the Sally Hemmings story is no “fable.”

This isn’t really Earth shattering. It’s a historical fact that many Whites, including slave owners, had sexual intercourse with their Negroes. This largely explains why Afro-Americans have approximately 20-25% White genes.

On any controversial issue, Wikipedia will reliably parrot the leftist agenda. Also, academia is a wholly owned outpost of the left, so you won’t get much pushback on the Hemmings matter in any mainstream history publication.

However, Ann Coulter has pointed out a few times, the case is much weaker than the mainstream left wants it to be:

Yes, his brother was apparently infamous for his escapades with slaves. So, the genetic tracers could just as well be from him. That being said, I have heard it maintained that Sally Hemmings was herself a by-blow of intercourse between a slave and a male from Mrs. Jefferson’s family, and thus was clearly related to her. Hemmings may have come to the household of Thomas J. through his marriage, and after the death of his wife – apparently a devastating blow to him – the resemblance to his dear wife may have led him to console himself in some measure… Read more »

Likely. But even if they take the Donbas and other parts of the east, the Russians will have to deal with a well-equipped, trained Ukrainian army in the west.

Russia had three big military goals: 1) liberate the Donbas and set up a land bridge to Crimea; 2) denazification and 3) a demilitarized, neutral Ukraine.

Looks like they will achieve 1 and 2, but lose bigly on 3.

Looks like some faction of Deep State wants this conflict to end. The question is which faction? Maybe the political side wants it to end to get food and energy costs down. Could be the military which is concerned about the war growing and the draining of their supplies to the Ukrainians? Could the intelligence agencies.

Who is Bill Clinton, a scoundrel of questionable lineage from Arkansas, in comparison to that? Who or what has been protecting the Clinton’s all these years?

Clinton was read into the Deep State when he went to Georgetown, landed a Rhodes scholarship, and then did his JD at Yale.

He was then selected governor of Arkansas because they figured he would be reliable in permitting and protecting Deep State shenanigans in Mena during the 80s.

He did that job so well the Deep State selected him to be president as a thank you.

It ain’t a “1000 year old dynasty”. The name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha came into the British Royal Family in 1840 with the marriage of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert, son of Ernst, Duke of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha. Queen Victoria herself was the last monarch of the House of Hanover. The House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha as a British dynasty was short-lived. It encompassed the reign of King Edward VII, who reigned for nine years at the beginning of the modern age in the early years of the twentieth century, and the first seven years of his son, King George V, who replaced the German-sounding… Read more »

Adding to Geese’s, Hillary was the intern who brought down Nixon. It was she who unveiled the tapes, and the infamous “missing 18 minutes.”

I believe it is the Mossad angle. So many “playahs” became ensnared in the net, that exposure of this foreign intelligence penetration/blackmail racket is unthinkable; permitting this to happen in any meaningful way would invoke a form of the “Samson Option”, leaving a trail of bodies of the compromised “elites” in its wake.

I have considered the Mossad angle and it is viable. If it is correct, I would suggest the complicity of United States intelligence services in a foreign government op to blackmail its (and closely allied) citizens–who have the juice to do something retaliatory–probably is the primary cause of concern.

As an aside, you seldom come across any independent analysis of the Epstein situation. I grok the state-controlled propaganda organs avoiding it, but if there has been independent inquiry, I am unaware.

My background on Le Affaire Epstein is rather sketchy, gleaned from some Unz articles. It is at least on a par with my background on the Sally Hemmings — Jefferson allegations, so take with a certain grain of salt. 🙂 His curious beginnings, being of no special talent, to being very wealthy with no clear source, suggests hidden sources of funding. His 2008 conviction in Florida, and the (at the time even) curious reluctance of the Feds to file any charges. Amazingly, Wikipedia even mentions the Acosta comment: “Acosta later said he offered a lenient plea deal because he was… Read more »

Maxwell was as British as you are.When “Robert Maxwell” lived in Poland he had a Polish name.

There isn’t an easy relationship between the UK and Israel. Israel carries out ops in the US all the time regardless of US sensibilities. Don’t assume if Israel is doing something then the US and the UK intel agencies are involved

You have way too much confidence in the masses. The elite could be sacrificing babies to a volcano god and the masses will go along with it. If they riot for lack of food, it’s just the animal instinct coming to the fore and not political in the slightest. It would be exactly the same as when some of the fellas loot local Target when BLM is “mostly peacefully” rioting. It’s not politically motivated looting, it’s just good old fashioned “free shit” looting. Another problem with the masses is too many of them think this is all the Democrat’s fault… Read more »

“Once a ruling class stops respecting its own rules, the rest of society soon follows.” Cynicism and narcissism follow. This is why opportunists aren’t necessarily hypocrites though they may look and sound like hypocrites. Some folks go, “It’s all a sham. Nothing we can do about it. So let’s go along to get along. Some go, “Can’t deal with it,” and look the other way. Some, as in the case of BLM or covid, with their lawn signs and masks, virute signal in the hope of setting themselves apart from sinners and thus sneaking into heaven on the sly. Some… Read more »

We should be sensitive to the fact that no one genuinely right wing has proposed any clear workable plan to soft land the crash, much less recover control. There are factions of smart people with sketches of plans that they can’t possible begin to implement, and other factions with sketches of different plans thay they can’t possibly begin to implement… and for the most part they are infighting and backstabbing one another, and that’s BEFORE the actual powerful institutions both even stirring to crush them both. There is no plan, there are only complaints and to a lesser extent –… Read more »

As a fan, I have to disagree the pee pee dossier affair and coverup constitutes the greatest hoax in US history. That honor belongs to WWII, then Covid, the 2020 general election, and the six million. The pee pee flows down from those events.

Generally agree, however I would rank the (probable) hoaxes from biggest to smaller in terms of the enduring impact (e.g. political power accrued, total deaths) as follows: 1. Holocaust/Six Million — led to enormous gains of political and other influence in many nations. A case could be made for the “Jewish Conspiracy” over a longer time frame, but surely the period from Nazi Germany forward has been an unparalleled achievement for them, in known history. 2. WW II — similar, Jewish influence to sway nations to profit allied business (banking, industry); perhaps creation of Israel the nation. Taken by itself,… Read more »

Today’s column on the fake Russia-Trump collusion hoax is interesting, but it misses the fact that no scandal really sticks in the public imagination without someone with a really goofy name being involved. H. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, Fawn Hall, John Poindexter, Jeff Gilooly, and Joey Buttafucco are good examples of people with weird names who really made their scandals pop for the average joe. Without someone with a funny and memorable name, a scandal has much more trouble sticking. Juanita Broaddrick would have had a much easier time of things if, for example, she had been named… Read more »

The names are one of their favorite ways of signaling to/messing with us.
