January 25, 2022 — The latest filing in the Durham probe, the USA vs Michael Sussmann, et al is the Government’s Discovery Update and Request for Additional Time to Procure Residual Discovery Material filed by Special Counsel John Durham today. In the filing, Durham claims he and his team have obtained extensive information from a variety of sources, including the Clinton Campaign, Perkins Coie Law Firm and Mark Elias.
Mr. Sussmann has been charged with making false statements to the FBI, then general counsel James Baker, but Durham notes that he is still under and active criminal investigation. Meaning more charges could be added if more criminal conduct is uncovered as they are still investigating his “conduct.”
Mr. Durham is asking the Court for more time to meet its discovery obligations as Sussmann wanted a trial in May of 2022 and Durham believes he needs until July of 2022. Durham claims they have already met most of their discovery obligations according to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 16, the Jencks Act, Federal Rule of Evidence 404(b), the Brady/Giglio line of cases and that the defendant would not be prejudiced by this small delay.
The Government has already provided the following Discovery to the defendant, Mr. Sussmann:
This is a pretty substantial amount of discovery already produced. Mr. Elias recently testified in front of a grand jury so that is promising.
