On Balance with Leland Vittert: John Durham InvestigationRead Time: 1 min
Member and Co-Chair of the Government and Internal Investigations team Bob Driscoll (Washington) appeared on On Balance with Leland Vittert’s February 16 show on “NewsNation Now” discussing Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation allegations against attorney and cybersecurity contractor Michael Sussman.
Durham’s position is that these consultants and Sussman himself were aware that this information wasn’t strong enough to draw any connection between Trump and Russia.
It is not a “hack” as we understand that term and it’s not “spying” as we understand that term. It raises some difficult privacy issues about what this consultant, who apparently was working with the White House on server security issues, and working with other private contractors on security issues, what they’re doing making this data available to politically affiliated people to make contact with the government and dump it in there. I think that’s concerning enough that it doesn’t need to be overblown to say it’s a hack or it’s spying, because that hasn’t been shown yet. Maybe it will be, but that’s not what this is about.
