Wednesday, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton denied convincing claims that her campaign spied on President Donald Trump’s campaign AND executive office in order to conjure up a link between Trump and Russia.
The claims were made in special prosecutor John Durham’s long-awaited court filing, submitted last week after an intricate probe into the matter.
In a Twitter post, the Democrat wrote that “Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it’s a day that ends in Y,” also adding, “The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie.”
She then shared an article from left-wing tabloid Vanity Fair which, she claims, gives a “debunking” of the spygate allegations. Hardly convincing to most, unless you are an MSNBC lemming.
The Clinton spying scandal story has been discussed widely on media sources, including Fox News, which is basically moderate at this point, and other respected right-wing sources like Newsmax.
We reported this week that former Trump administration official Kash Patel joined Greg Kelly’s show on Newsmax and said Durham’s probe had the potential to uncover the biggest scandal in United States history.

The Epoch Times has also covered the scandal extensively, keying in on the tech executive referenced in Durham’s filings, Rodney Joffee. The Epoch Times reports:
On Feb. 12, Durham wrote that a technology executive who was allegedly aligned with the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign spied on Trump’s residences and the White House when he was president.
That filing was made in connection to Durham’s case against Michael Sussmann, a lawyer who worked on behalf of the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee in 2016. Durham’s team alleged that Sussmann lied to the FBI when he told the bureau that he wasn’t working for any client when he provided false documents that claimed to have linked the Trump Organization to a Russian bank.
Sussmann, the filing said, “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,” according to the filing. Sussmann has pleaded not guilty, and his lawyers on Monday said the filing included “prejudicial—and false—allegations” against their client.
The tech executive, identified in reports as Rodney Joffee, also “tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” the filing said, adding that the Joffe’s employer “had come to access and maintain dedicated servers” for Trump’s executive office.
Through a spokesperson, Joffee told news outlets this week that he is an “apolitical Internet security expert” and “legally provided access to DNS data obtained from a private client that separately was providing DNS services to the Executive Office of the President (EOP).”
