According to reports, a Clinton campaign lawyers paid a technology company access to Trump Tower and White House servers. Philippe Reines, a former Clinton spokesperson said that he could confidently say that the Right’s insanely exaggerated and hysterical response to the Durham filing is a prime example of another plunge into the abyss.
“It has evolved from grossly exaggerating moments, to completely disregarding reality. He added that someone had written something on a piece of paper.
He continued, “You know it’s bulls–t.” Reines stated that there are two ways to distinguish between coverage: truthfulness and volume.
Reines also took issue with Fox News’ coverage on the Durham filing.
“FOX and other media like it pretend it is providing information that no one else is reporting. In an email to Fox News, Philippe Reines, former Clinton spokesperson said that the audience is made to believe they are in on a secret. They are only over-informed, and the rest of us live in a bubble that is free from inconvenient truths.
Reines wrote, “Those who treat their audience as fools to purchase anything sold to them are being inundated by it.”
Durham filed this month claiming that Clinton campaign lawyers paid a technology company access to Trump Tower’s servers, later the White House, to create an “inference” to link Donald Trump with Russia.
Durham had filed a motion regarding potential conflicts of interest between the case against Michael Sussmann (ex-Clinton campaign lawyer) and Durham. He was charged with making false statements to a federal agent. Sussmann, who allegedly claimed he wasn’t working for Clinton, allegedly presented documents linking Trump and Russia to the FBI. He has pleaded guilty.
Sussmann “had assembled the allegations and sent them to the FBI for at least two specific clients” including a tech executive from a U.S.-based Internet company as well as the Clinton campaign.
