Now, it has been revealed that the DNC, Fusion GPS, and the Clinton Campaign are attempting to shield hundreds of documents from the Durham probe.
The New York Post Reports–
“Special counsel John Durham has accused the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, research firm Fusion GPS and Democratic law firm Perkins Coie of improperly holding back hundreds of documents relevant to his investigation under unfounded claims of attorney-client privilege.
In a 23-page filing this week, Durham asked that a federal judge order the documents be handed over for in camera review, arguing that the privilege claims lack “any connection to actual or expected litigation or the provision of legal advice.”
In his request, Durham revealed that out of 1,455 documents withheld by Fusion GPS under claimed attorney-client privilege or work product protections, only 18 emails and attachments actually involve an attorney.
The filing went on to note that the DNC and Hillary for America — the official name for the Clinton campaign — have also tried to withhold communications between a Fusion GPS employee and tech executive Rodney Joffe, “despite the fact that no one from either the DNC or HFA is copied on certain of these communications.”
