"Kash Patel on Durham's 27 Page Sussman Indictment

"Main takeaways:
•Typical Indictment of this kind is normally only 2 to 3 Pages Max
•Every Meeting Sussman had was billed to the Clinton Campaign
•Durham investigation based on Bank Records: Follow the Money
•All the individuals who helped perpetuate the Russia Hoax are named in the Indictment by title.

"This combined with Durham's subpoenas to Perkins Coie, the Law firm used by the Clinton Campaign to hire Fusion GPS which produced the now debunked Steele Dossier which was used to deceive the FISA Court in order to obtain illegal Warrants to surveil the Trump Campaign/Administration. Things seem to be heating up 😏 "

Maria Bartiromo 0:01
Welcome back. We are back with former prosecutor and former Pentagon Chief of Staff, Kash Patel. Kash, I want to know from you when you believe the FBI figured out that the lies were coming from the Clinton campaign. I know that on January 25, 6th, and 7th, the FBI did meetings with the sub source on what exactly was in the dossier and at that time, they told them that it was garbage and they made it up. They had beers and embellished. But when do you believe the FBI figured out that all of this was just one political campaign trying to take down another?

Kash Patel 0:36
I think they knew right away. And the documents that we put out in the Nunes investigation, the Nunes memo and the report on Russian active measures show that the FBI knew right away, because of their FISA abuse process, now that the declassification process is complete; and your viewers should read it, that the FBI knew the information was fraudulent, they knew the credibility problems with Christopher Steele and they knew the DNC through Fusion GPS and Perkins Coie were piping in tens of millions of dollars into the machine so that they could get up a FISA warrant on President Trump. So I think they knew right away, which is why I think individuals at the head of the FBI need to be held accountable.

Maria Bartiromo 1:10
Wow. So they knew that it was garbage. And yet they still pursued a FISA warrant to wiretap Trump Organization members like Carter Page. Will John Durham reel in any big fish, in your view?

Kash Patel 1:25
Yeah, I believe so. Let me just put this in perspective. When I was running large scale conspiracy and fraud investigations, they took me three, four or five years to prosecute. John Durham's only in his second year of the most political scandal in US history. So I believe within the next six months, look out for indictments against the folks like Fusion GPS and Glenn Simpson for helping perpetuate this fraud. And look out for individuals like Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. I believe they're already helping John Durham. They're cooperating with him to get the bigger fish like the Andy McCabe, who is the biggest fraudster next to James Comey. I think you're gonna see these indictments start coming out on the individuals at the top. It's just gonna take a few more months, but I remind your viewers, it takes a little bit of time to work these matters.

Maria Bartiromo 2:04
Unbelievable and no surprise. The mainstream media gave them all jobs. Alright, quick move on to Afghanistan. What really is getting me is the politicization happening within the military. President Biden says he strongly opposes an honorable discharge for service members who refuse the COVID-19 vaccine. He doesn't want them to get discharged with honor because they won't take the vaccine. Your thoughts on what's happening right now in terms of the military and all of these vaccine mandates?

Kash Patel 2:36
Well, you hit it on the head. It is the ultimate politicization of the one apparatus that should never be politicized, starting with Milley, Austin, and Blinken, and Biden. Look, it's offensive to me to see my special forces brothers that I served with have to step aside because they won't take the mandated vaccine. These are the guys that killed Bin Laden. These are the guys that have killed Baghdadi, that took out Soleimani, that go and rescue our American hostages overseas day in and day out. And they don't want their names to be known, but they want to serve their country. And for President Biden to force a vaccine on them is outrageous when he won't even force a vaccine on the tens of thousands of Afghan refugees that are now coming into the United States of America. The height of hypocrisy there is outrageous. And it's showing with this politicization of the national security apparatus.

Maria Bartiromo 3:18
And extraordinarily last week we saw General Mark Milley admit that he has been talking to all of these writers with their anti-Trump books instead of having a serious and well-thought-out plan out of Afghanistan. Your thoughts on what we learned on all of those hearings and testimonies that we heard last week from Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, blaming the State Department for delaying the evacuation of civilians out of Afghanistan. Look, you were there. You ran the DOD during the Trump administration. Your sense of all of this?

Kash Patel 3:55
Yeah, it's outrageous. I mean, Milley is the new Kraken of the swamp for a reason. I mean, he's the most apolitical figure by law who's become most political, instead of spending time informing the President on how to safely evacuate out of Afghanistan. He's giving book interviews and lying to the American people. And instead of Lloyd Austin going into Congress and telling them we had a plan, not an evacuation emergency, he's telling the American people he doesn't even know. The Secretary of Defense does not know if there's a thousand American citizens stranded in Afghanistan or not, and they have no plans to go and get them, because they don't have a plan in place to work with our allies and on the ground. 

Instead, they're bringing home caskets of American soldiers because of their disastrous efforts. And then, you know the US government's failed the American public in the national security apparatus when they start blaming one another. The Secretary of Defense is blaming the State Department for not removing Americans. The State Department is not the Department of Defense. The DOD has the planes, the helicopters, the soldiers, the necessary equipment to go in and safeguard our personnel, not the diplomats. It's outrageous. And this is just gonna get worse.

Maria Bartiromo 4:55
Really disturbing. Real quick, we've got to jump. We're about to talk with Senator Marsha Blackburn about this. But you think we're gonna go back to Afghanistan? That we're gonna be forced to send troops in?

Kash Patel 5:06
Yeah. Look Al-Qaeda and the Taliban and ISIS, they are already on the rise. It's what happens when you don't have a conditions-based withdrawal like we did under President Trump. It was what happens when you don't keep Bhagram airfield, the brain center of our operation; and it's gonna force us to go back in, in probably about a year's time, tragically.

Maria Bartiromo 5:22
Alright. Kash, good to see you. Thank you so much.

Kash Patel: Why the Sussman Indictment is a Big Deal | CLIP

Jan Jekielek 0:00
So Kash, we're going to talk about something that you played a pretty important role in today. We're going to look at Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussman's...the indictment against him by Special Counsel Durham. This is something a lot of people are talking about. It's a 27-page indictment for something that might typically take two to five pages, is what I'm hearing from a lot of people. Briefly tell me, what is this?

Kash Patel 0:28
So basically, we'll get into the details, but a thousand and one count, being a former federal public defender and federal prosecutor who dealt with these cases a lot, is basically saying you came in and lied to law enforcement, to cops, to the FBI. And that's what they're saying Michael Sussman did. They're alleging he went in to the FBI and lied to them. Those indictments tend to be two to five pages maximum. I've done them myself. I've defended them myself. And so a lot of folks are curious as to why you would lay out what we call a 27-page "speaking" indictment. And there are a number of reasons for doing it that way. I can only speculate since I'm not John Durham.

Jan Jekielek 1:07
So why don't you break it down? What is in this indictment?

Kash Patel  1:11
Michael Sussman is one of the top two lawyers for the Hillary Clinton campaign when she was running for president in 2016 and the DNC. His law firm, Perkins Coie had himself, Sussman and his partner, Mark Elias, be the top two law firms in the entire country for the whole of the Hillary Clinton campaign for president and the Democratic National Committee. So a large role played by this lawyer because they were paid tens of millions of dollars to obtain this role and execute everything from election law to campaign finance, to any criminal allegations that might come up, to state law as to how voting is supposed to be done in Alabama versus New York versus California, campaign ads. The gamut runs pretty far and wide, which is why their retainer is so high. But they're the two premier lawyers for the DNC and Clinton campaign.

Jan Jekielek 2:06
I mean, and so you know, this is a bigger role than say the first indictment that John Durham made which was the indictment of Kevin Clinesmith.

Kash Patel 2:15
So people forget. This isn't John Durham's first indictment, it's his second. John Durham charged Clinesmith with doctoring a documented email to the federal judge in federal court that was seen reviewing the FISA application search warrant. So that was a pretty big deal that someone who works at the FBI was charged with lying basically to a federal court, because he changed what was in an actual email and then submitted that email to the court, knowingly doing that. And that first individual, Clinesmith, pled guilty, so he's a convicted federal criminal. And that was the first indictment from some months ago. This is the second one. Now we're moving on to the private sector. The lawyers, the lawyer for the Hillary Clinton campaign, it's very interesting timing and a read.

Jan Jekielek 3:04
So you have the top Hillary Clinton lawyer, or one of the two top Hillary Clinton lawyers, allegedly going out and lying to the FBI. What are they lying about?

Kash Patel 3:17
In the indictment, John Durham's alleging that, basically, Michael Sussman, on behalf of the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, went into the FBI and met with the general counsel. Let's just hit pause for a quick second. The FBI has forty-some1 employees maybe. The general counsel is the number one lawyer at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Every other lawyer works for him. This individual Sussman was able to, based on his relationships with this lawyer and his service at DOJ before he went to Perkins Coie, he's able to get a meeting and walk into the Federal Bureau of Investigations' headquarters and sit down with the general counsel of the FBI, which is a big deal in and of itself. But he, according to the indictment, Sussman went in to this office to see Baker and provide this information that they're talking about in the indictment, this stuff that we'll get into about Alfa Bank, and he wrote a white paper. Sussman had his team write a white paper that was allegedly paid for by the Clinton campaign. And he presented it to James Baker of the FBI and said, I'm just being a good Samaritan. I need you guys to review this. And thanks for meeting with me. What the indictment alleges is a criminal conduct is not the handoff of that information. It's that Sussman, according to the indictment, lied about who his client was, who he was doing it on behalf of, who paid him to collect that information and submit it to the FBI, which is a lie if you're lying to the FBI about it. He never revealed to Baker, according to the indictment, that his client was the Hillary Clinton campaign. In fact, according to the indictment, Sussman actually goes out of his way to say he's not there on behalf of anyone. He's just stumbled upon this information and I'm presenting it to you, James Baker, at the FBI.

Jan Jekielek 5:06
And of course, the information, what Sussman was alleging was, of course, could have been incredibly significant if it were true.

Kash Patel 5:13
Yes. If it were true. What Sussman's alleging is that - to get into a little bit of the weeds on on the whole Russiagate scandal from 2016 onwards is, and we have to remember the timing of this: this was before the presidential election in 2016 - and Septemberish, Octoberish of 2016, he goes to the FBI, and says, I have information that Trump, the other candidate, not his candidate, but the opposing candidate for president, his building and his enterprise have been permeated by a Russian bank and a Russian internet server that's allowing them to conspire with the Russian government or people in Russia, to steal the election, was the allegation. Pretty significant and pretty damning, if it were true. The only problem is, per the indictment and per my own investigation when I ran Russiagate for Chairman Nunes on House Intel is, we knew at the time none of that information was true. And in fact, the FBI and this indictment comes out and flat out says that the people who did the research for Michael Sussman said themselves, they didn't believe that the connection between the Alfa Bank server and the Trump campaign even existed, and it would be a stretch to even put it down on paper. That's all in the indictment. So it's, if it were true, pretty damning. But I have a little bit of a personal role in this because of my 2016 job back on the House Intel Committee.

Jan Jekielek 6:45
Right. Well, you actually wrote the deposition that forms a significant part of this indictment.

Kash Patel 6:53
When we were charged by the speaker at the time in 2016 to investigate what they call the Russian active measures against the US election, part of our job under Chairman Nunes was to call in 60-some witnesses and swear them in under oath and depose them, question them, interrogate them. And we depose Principals, Attorney Generals, FBI directors, deputies, private individuals, Clinton campaign officers, and one of the people we interviewed and deposed was Michael Sussman. And I actually took that deposition. And that deposition of Michael Sussman's sworn testimony from 2016 is cited in John Durham's indictment from just the other week. And what it says, was it takes part of the questioning and it says, Were you, Michael Sussman, working on behalf of anybody in regards to this Alfa Bank information? And he, in the deposition that I took said, Yes, it was on behalf of a client and he repeated it and confirmed it. The deposition is in the indictment and speaks for itself. But he wouldn't tell me back then in 2016, who the client was even though we knew they claimed attorney client privilege and that they wouldn't let us get into who the campaign or who the figure was. But we had proven it back then, which is why we took that deposition with such rigor on that line of questions.

Jan Jekielek 8:15
Well, and it's very interesting because, well, let's let's actually sketch this out, okay? So Sussman is at the top of Perkins Coie. And then Perkins Coie is hired by? Well, you why don't you tell me.

Kash Patel 8:33
Yeah. So Perkins Coie, this huge international behemoth law firm, very well respected, is hired by the Clinton campaign and the DNC to be their lawyers for the presidential election cycle of 2016. Big job, right? Obviously, you're representing the Democratic nominee for president and the entire Democratic National Committee. So Elias and Sussman are the two guys overseeing this entire architecture of legal representation. And those guys get paid, those guys Perkins Coie, get paid tens of millions of dollars from the Clinton campaign and the DNC. What did Sussman and Elias do? They take that money and go out and hire Fusion GPS, which I'm sure many of our viewers are familiar with; an internet research firm. And I believe they're the ones cited in the indictment, this Fusion GPS and their CEO Glenn Simpson. They pay Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS millions of dollars to conduct research against President Trump's campaign, including all the Russia stuff. Then Fusion GPS hires Christopher Steele, who also I'm sure our viewers are now familiar with in the Steele Dossier. So the money, just to simplify it, goes from the Hillary Clinton campaign to the Hillary Clinton campaigns lawyers, to the people doing the internet research for them, Fusion GPS and Steele. So they are paying - the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign - are paying for this research.

Jan Jekielek 9:54
You mean opposition research?

Kash Patel 9:56
Yes, opposition research. So they, the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign, through Perkins Coie, Fusion GPS and Steele are paying millions of dollars to get opposition research against candidate Trump and his entire campaign. Bottom line, they're spending millions of dollars on that. Now, in and of itself, I will tell you that there's nothing wrong with going to get opposition research against your opponent. That's what political cycles do all the time. But this is problematic for reasons I think we're going to get into.

Jan Jekielek 10:26
At the same time, as they're kind of running the whole legal operation and everything you just mentioned, Sussman goes to someone he knows well at the top of the FBI legal team, Baker, and get shows him this connection, this alleged connection, Alfa Bank, Trump campaign or Trump Organization. And at the same time, from what we know, actually from this UK legal case, where Christopher Steele was actually on the stand. We also know that it was Sussman who introduced this Alfa Bank Trump connection into the Steele Dossier in the first place, which is, again, fascinating,

Kash Patel 11:12
You're talking about another track of this entire operation that's sort of outlined in Durham's indictment. Not only did Sussman on behalf of the Clinton campaign for the indictment, take this information to the FBI, he's also taking the information and seeding it into areas of the media. So that's the other problematic portion of the allegations in the indictment, because this information that was false per the indictment, in that, from my belief, from my investigation of Russiagate, we knew then that back then and now it's coming out that it is so, he's not only ceding it to a law enforcement agency, which we'll get to the details of that in a second as to what they did with it, but the media, because they want the media to start running these stories before the election. And that's exactly what happened. So he gives it to Christopher Steele and Steele starts giving it through Fusion GPS and others to people in the media. And Sussman himself allegedly meets with people in the media to start planting these stories. And what happens? Right before the election, there's a story that breaks nationally that says, looks like President Trump is somehow connected with the Russian government through these Alfa Bank servers. And Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate, even tweets it and pretends like she didn't know anything about it. Look at President Trump, he's connected with Russians. Don't vote for him. And that's pretty damning information to put out a week or two right before an election.

Charlie Kirk 0:00
So let's now get to the present day, that kind of sets the table. You have been one of the few people that have been bullish, maybe I'm seeing it wrong, on Durham and kind of how this is proceeding. Talk about the indictment of Sussman, and what you think that might lead to.

Kash Patel 0:18
Yeah. And let me just set the table real quick. When I was running large scale conspiracies or prosecutions...Charlie, these are cases that took me 2, 3, 4 years to conduct and to get to an indictment, because that's just the amount of work that it takes. Durham's on basically year two and he's already issued two indictments. I know that might not seem like a lot for people who aren't familiar with the criminal justice system, but that's moving pretty quickly for DOJ. Not to mention, this is the biggest political scandal in US history. So he's taking his time.

Now turning to the Sussman indictment. Sussman was the lawyer for the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. What Durham alledges in his indictment is that Michael Sussman lied to the FBI. And usually that's a pretty short indictment. That's a two- to three-pager. I used to do them all the time. He wrote a 27 page indictment. And as you said, basically laying out a mob conspiracy. He went so far as to put all this information in the public view, because I believe it's what I would have done, he knows there's more individuals involved in this conspiracy. Michael Sussman wasn't the only player.

Charlie Kirk 1:25
So do you think this is Durham going after the bag man to possibly get to somebody else? Is this part of the strategy?

Kash Patel 1:33
Yeah, you don't even have to be a lawyer to figure that one out. For all your viewers, you go after the easy target, you go after the case you can make. And then when that guy is facing a federal prison sentence of five years, he's probably gonna flip and say, I don't want to go to jail, not for anybody, not for Hillary Clinton or anyone. I got a family, I'm not going to prison. And that guy starts turning information against...as we say, you flip up, you get to the bigger fish by going up the ladder. And I think that's what Durham is building here, because he identified eight people, not by name in the indictment, but I can tell you who they are in that indictment, because he wants the world to know Michael Sussman worked with all these people, got paid by all these people, and was dishonest to the FBI. That's the kicker. And the deposition he cites in the Sussman indictment is the one I took of Michael Sussman in 2017.

Charlie Kirk 2:24
First of all, what do you mean "he identified eight people"? Were they redacted or what do you mean?

Kash Patel 2:29
Yeah. So if you look at the indictment, the practices you don't put people's name in there if they're not charged. So, it's like researcher number one, media company number two, things like that, generic labels, lawyer number two. And I can tell you what I believe. Lawyer number two is Mark Elias, I believe, Sussman's partner at the law firm who ran the entire DNC Hillary Clinton campaign stuff. Media Company is I believe Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson's operation that funneled this nonsense by getting paid from the DNC, to the media. And then the research companies are less important. But what is important is what they say in the indictment. And this is what the guys who did the research say. They said, our information that you want us to say is true. We don't think it's true. And if you say it, you're basically committing a fraud. So that's how bad it is.

Charlie Kirk 3:18
That's so helpful. So I see this in two different categories. I see this as the Hillary Clinton World The Sussman and I, I don't know what to expect out of that. I would hope to see Glenn Simpson and all them held accountable. But the one that terrifies me more that I am very pessimistic is the abuse of government power, is Strzok, Page, Comey. Is there anything in the indictment to show that Durham is also focused on federal agents that broke the law?

Kash Patel 3:51
I think so. And because he cites James Baker so extensively, remember there's, I don't know, 50, 100,000 people who work for the FBI, right? James Baker isn't "all lawyer" in the FBI, he's "the lawyer". He's the number one guy. And Michael Sussman, if you and I tried to get an appointment with the FBI's General Counsel, they'd laugh us out of the building and it would probably take seven years just to try to get a call back. This guy put in one phone call to his buddy and walked right into the building, and then pretended to be a good samaritan and said, I'm not here on behalf of any client. I'm just here because I've got these reports on Trump-Russia servers, please do something with them. When I questioned him four years ago, he admitted he was working at the behest of a client. And what Durham did brilliantly was identified the payment records which show repeatedly Michael Sussman was doing that research for the Clinton campaign.

Building the Criminal Case for Conspiracy Against the Deep State with Kash Patel

Few people in Washington DC have a Deep State target on their back that compares to the size of the one plastered on our latest guest on The Charlie Kirk Show, Kash Patel.

Throughout the interview, you'll understand why Charlie calls him the brains behind exposing the Russiagate Hoax—as they walk through the details, leaning on his experience as a top intelligence staffer for Congressman Devin Nunes, and later as a top Department of Defense official for the Trump White House, Kash unpacks exactly what made the Russia hoax just that: a hoax. And after a long silence from the Office of John Durham is finally broken, Charlie and Kash make sense of the 27-page indictment of Clinton attorney Sussman and why it points to a much larger criminal indictment to come from Durham.

As you can imagine after hearing what he has to say, the Deep State is aggressively attacking Kash with everything they've got. Learn more about how you can support him by going to FightWithKash.com

Kash’s Corner: More Indictments Are Coming; Unraveling the Origins of the Russia Collusion Hoax

Special counsel John Durham is sending a signal that more indictments are coming, says Kash Patel.

"When you issue an indictment for lying to the FBI, like they did [Michael] Sussmann, it's two to five pages max. It's unheard of to be 27 pages. So why put all that information out there?" It's "the biggest signal that more is coming," says Kash Patel.

Kash Patel deposed former Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann as part of his investigations into allegations of Trump–Russia collusion with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), and that deposition became a key part of Durham's indictment of Sussmann, who was a lawyer for the Clinton campaign.

In this episode, he breaks down what's in the indictment and where Durham's investigation is likely headed.

Kash P. Patel, Esq.
Chief of Staff to the Department of Defense & Secretary of Defense*

"Kash Patel served as the Chief of Staff to President Donald J. Trump's Department of Defense (DOD), where his responsibilities included implementing the Secretary's mission using our 3 million plus employees, operating a $740 billion budget, and $2 trillion in assets. Managing the world's largest organization required a constant, mission focused, principal-level engagement across all government agencies and the private sector. Our priority at the Department, defend the homeland, protect the U.S. from our enemies, and care for our service men and women.

"Prior to his experience at the Pentagon, Mr. Patel served as Deputy Assistant to President Donald J. Trump and Senior Director for Counterterrorism (CT) on the National Security Council (NSC). In that capacity, Mr. Patel oversaw the execution of several of President Trump's top priorities, including eliminating Al-Qa'ida and ISIS senior leadership, and safely repatriating of dozens of American hostages. As the top counterterrorism official at the White House, he was responsible for creating and implementing our nation's policy to safeguard the homeland by overseeing the interagency implementation of the national CT strategy. Mr. Patel was also selected to serve as Principal Deputy to the Acting Director of National Intelligence. At ODNI, he oversaw all 17 Intelligence Community (IC) agencies, and prioritized intelligence collection to focus on hard targets and global threats. This allowed him to lead the Director's duty to synthesize our intelligence holdings and create the President's Daily Briefing, which he would then brief to the President and cabinet officials. As one of the highest ranking officials at DOD, ODNI, and the White House, Mr. Patel gained unique expertise straddling the nexus of government and private sector operations/policy for the defense of our nation to include defense, cyber, and intel.

"Before joining the NSC, Mr. Patel served as the National Security Advisor and Senior Counsel for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), where he spearheaded the investigation into the Russian active measures campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election. Concurrently, he led congressional oversight of sensitive programs for the IC and U.S. Special Operations Forces and worked to enact legislation to fully fund the multi-billion-dollar budgets supporting intelligence and counterterrorism operations worldwide. That role required Mr. Patel to spend a considerable amount of time in more than 40 locations around the world.

"Mr. Patel joined HPSCI following his tenure as a national security prosecutor at the Department of Justice (DOJ) under the Obama administration, where he led investigations spanning multiple theaters of conflict and oversaw the successful prosecution of criminals aligned with Al-Qa'ida, ISIS, and other terror groups. This work necessitated Mr. Patel's presence in locations across the globe, collaborating with host nation governments to successfully prosecute terrorists. He also served as the DOJ Liaison Officer to Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), working with our nation's most prestigious counterterrorism units (special forces) to conduct collaborative global targeting operations against high value objectives, in almost every theater of war.

"Mr. Patel began his career in 2005 as a public defender, trying scores of complex cases in federal and state courts, ranging from murder, to narco-trafficking, to complex financial crimes. This required extensive briefings and court appearances. These cases took place throughout the U.S., in over half a dozen countries, and required Mr. Patel to diplomatically engage with several foreign governments.

"A native of New York, Mr. Patel graduated from the University of Richmond with a bachelor's in criminal justice and history, received a juris doctor from law school in New York, and a Certificate in International Law from University College London Faculty of Laws in the United Kingdom.
