What might Durham be saying besides hinting at some of the broader aspects of the Trump/Russia collusion case?

According to the latest filing from Special Counsel John Durham (United States of America v. Michael A. Sussmann, Defendant; Case 1:21-cr-00582-CRC Document 35 Filed 02/11/22)

The United States of America, by and through its attorney, Special Counsel John H. Durham, respectfully moves this Court to inquire into potential conflicts of interest arising from the representation of the defendant by his current counsel, Latham & Watkins LLP (“Latham”). The Government has discussed these matters with the defense and believes that any potential conflicts likely could be addressed with a knowing and voluntary waiver by the defendant upon consultation with conflict-free counsel as appropriate. The Government believes that any such waiver should be put on the record prior to trial. As set forth in further detail below, it is possible that conflicts of interest could arise from the fact that Latham and/or its employees (i) previously represented others in the Special Counsel’s investigation whose interests may conflict with those of the defendant, (ii) previously represented the defendant and his prior employer in connection with events that likely will be relevant at trial or at any sentencing, and (iii) maintained professional and/or personal relationships with individuals who could be witnesses in these proceedings. Accordingly, for the reasons set forth below, the government respectfully requests that the Court inquire into the potential conflicts of interest set forth herein. Defense counsel has advised that the defendant has been apprised of these issues, understands that he has the right to consult independent counsel, and presently intends to waive any potential conflict of interest.

Latham & Watkins is a well-respected law firm that operates as a limited liability partnership worldwide with affiliated limited liability partnerships conducting the practice. One Latham & Watkins employee of note is  Kathryn Ruemmler, also known as “The President’s Fixer.” Other than former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton, there is only one public-facing individual that can be connected with almost all of the cover-ups of scandals connected to the Obama Administration -- Kathryn Ruemmler, who formerly served as the Principal Deputy White House Counsel and then as the White House Counsel to President Barack Obama.

Neck deep in covering up serious criminal activities?

Remember that curious “cover Obama’s ass” email Susan Rice sent to herself hours before leaving office? 

The email was partially unclassified at the time and appeared to detail the Jan. 5, 2017, meeting, which included Obama, Rice, then-FBI Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Vice President Joe Biden.

[OCS: On January 5th, 2017 President Barack Obama and VP Biden met with, FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Susan Rice regarding Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election.]

President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book,’” Rice emailed to herself. “The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”

The email also appeared to reflect Obama’s guidance on sharing sensitive information with both the Russians and the incoming Trump administration.

Rice wrote that Obama said, “he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.” <Source>

The meeting was a pretext to set up Michael Flynn, spying on the Trump campaign and incoming administration personnel, and unmasking arranged foreign intelligence intercepts. When GOP Senators sought further answers from Rice – she was represented by none other than Kathryn Ruemmler.

Ruemmler represents Rice...

A lawyer for President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, told Congress late Friday that the outgoing administration was fearful of sharing classified intelligence with members of the incoming Trump team, especially Rice’s successor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

In a letter to lawmakers, Rice’s lawyer Kathryn Ruemmler, said Rice drafted a Jan. 20, 2017, email to herself on the advice of White House counsel to memorialize the outgoing administration’s reluctance.

“President Obama and his national security team were justifiably concerned about potential risks to the Nation’s security from sharing highly classified information about Russia with certain members of the Trump transition team, particularly Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn,” Ruemmler wrote.

Ruemmler’s letter was a response to GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who had inquired about the email that Rice sent herself just hours before the Obama administration left office.<Source>

The coming battle...

Since so many of the scandal's participants were lawyers, bound to claim attorney-client privilege, it will be up to John Durham to pierce claims of privilege by demonstrating that no attorney-client privilege exists when the services of the lawyer were sought or obtained to enable or aid anyone to commit or plan to commit what the client knew was a crime or fraud. 491 U.S. 554 (1989), 88-40, United States v. Zolin

Bottom line…

It all comes down to protecting Barack Obama, a man whose communist indoctrination and dodgy associates should have precluded any government service, let alone becoming the President of the United States.

Hopefully, Durham will discover and disclose the lengths to which the progressive communist democrats infiltrated the governments and attempted to stage a silent coup on behalf of Obama and Clinton. Biden’s corruption-related crimes may need to be placed on the back burner, although he was the Vice President of the United States at the time when his administration committed serious constitutional and criminal offenses. 

Perhaps Biden's crimes will further delay the prosecution of the Obamacons. Obama and his minions will stop at nothing, including political cannibalism, to protect Obama.

We are so screwed.
