Hillary Clinton’s campaign to discredit presidential challenger Donald Trump in 2016 has been concerning. In addition, it's troubling that the people involved haven't been held accountable for their actions. The most recent development in this story involves attorney Michael Sussmann, who was found not guilty on Monday of an accusation of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
However, Fox News host Tucker Carlson ran an astonishing claim by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Monday night. Gaetz asserted that he, along with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), was informed that the FBI maintained a safe workplace within Perkins Coie—the law firm in which Michael Sussmann used to be an associate and also through which he worked for the Clinton campaign.
That's not really a concern or anything. In a letter sent by Perkins Coie in response to Gaetz and Jordan's revelation, the firm maintained that space for more than 10 years, dating up to 2012. Carlson said that the office was still operating at the present time. Gaetz claimed that it was Sussmann who was “operating this secure work environment.”
“What reason would there be for that?” Gaetz inquired. “And what leverage would the Perkins law firm have over the FBI, given this work they're doing together?”
Gaetz stated that he was “making demands” on Christopher Wray, the FBI director, “immediately” to explain what was happening, as Gaetz claimed that it wasn't in any way normal. Gaetz declared that the Democratic Party, which has employed Perkins Coie for many years, should not have this exclusive right to access the FBI.
It's unclear what's being discussed here, and we'll be able to see what the FBI and Perkins Coie have to say regarding this. However, if there has been a shared area, it raises concerns due to the close relationship that Perkins Coie and the Democratic Party have with the FBI, because the FBI is supposed to maintain impartiality as one of its main law-enforcement weapons in the country. We keep asking many questions regarding the Russia investigation. But are there any explanations in this particular area?
