GOP Sen. Ron Johnson said the revelations from the federal trial of former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann expose the extent of corruption in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, the DC swamp and the media.
In powerful testimony last week, Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook told jurors that she “consented” to the media about the since-debunked allegations linking the Trump campaign to Kremlin-affiliated Alfa Bank to pass on.
“We have known for some time that Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for the Steele dossier. But now we’re finding out that the whole Alfa Bank scam… it was all made up,” Wisconsin-based Johnson said on his WABC radio show on 770 AM.
“They used people who had contracts with our Department of Defense to mine this data and sort of infer that Trump was colluding with Russia so they could report it to the FBI [which could then] …report this to the American public as an October surprise,” Johnson said in the interview, which aired Sunday.
Testimony in Special Counsel John Durham’s case against Sussmann, which began last week, outlines a “major scandal,” he said.
“The fact that Hillary Clinton’s campaign fabricated this whole Russian secret scam and the FBI…concluded that this is absurd — it’s bullshit…And yet they started the Mueller investigation,” the senator said from Wisconsin.
“What is being revealed to the American public is corruption at the highest levels, A: Hillary Clinton’s campaign and B: the FBI and the Justice Department,” he said.
Johnson also said he had “doubts” about how involved the US intelligence community and people like former CIA director John Brennan were in informing the Obama administration “that Hillary Clinton would authorize this exact type of operation.”
“US government law enforcement knew this was what the Clinton campaign intended, and yet they have guided America through this … four-year political turmoil, all based on a lie concocted by Hillary Clinton,” he said.
Sussmann faces charges in federal court in Washington, DC, on charges of lying to the FBI in September 2016.
Durham prosecutors say Sussmann denied working for the Clinton campaign or tech executive Rodney Joffe when he met with then-FBI General Counsel James Baker and turned over data allegedly linking the Trump campaign and Alfa Bank showed.
Johnson said the media was complicit in spreading Clinton’s campaign hoax and electing President Biden.
“Hillary Clinton on Alfa Bank said, ‘I just heard about it on the news.’ No! Your campaign got it into the news and of course into the news outlets that had the story,” he said on the radio show.
“They knew what Hillary Clinton said was a lie. And yet they continued with this story, this hoax. Why? Because they are not journalists. They are advocates of the radical left. They didn’t want Donald Trump to be elected,” Johnson said.
He continued by saying that media involvement in the scandal allowed Biden to defeat Donald Trump in 2020, leading to the current state of the nation, pointing to the immigration crisis, inflation at a 40-year Hoch and the “surrender in Afghanistan”. that led to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“Would this have happened if Trump were in office? I don’t think so,” Johnson said.
“The media are complicit in this. You brought us this catastrophe [with the help of] the Democratic Party. They must be held accountable. … They will continue to do whatever they can to cover for Biden, Clinton and themselves,” he said.
“They are the ‘radical left information cartel’. They are the ones who told the lies. They are the ones who have allied themselves with the Democrats and the far left. You can’t afford to be proven wrong. So they will continue to cover themselves up,” he said
