Ahead of Hillary Clinton’s speech at the Democratic convention in New York City today, protestors were caught chanting “lock her up!” as the former presidential candidate entered and exited the building. The protests come after the latest filing from Special Counsel John Durham, implicating Hillary Clinton’s campaign spying on then-President Trump.
Independent journalist Leeroy Press caught the chant as Clinton came out of the Sheraton Hotel, where the convention took place.
Special Counsel John Durham is investigating the origins of the Obama administration’s Trump/Russia probe. The report alleges that a tech executive, Rodney Joffe, hired to combat cyber threats, abused his position to mine contacts between then-President Donald Trump and Russia. This information was distorted to suggest that the President was a pawn of Russia.
Durham’s filing reportedly includes details on former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, charged with making a false statement to a federal agent. The filing says that Sussmann “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign…” showing that Sussmann “repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations.”
Clinton responded to the latest filing Wednesday, Feb. 16, saying that former President Trump and Fox News were “desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones.”
