Hillary Clinton has finally addressed the elephant in the room with respect to the recent filing in the Durham probe that seemingly links her to spying on former President Trump during the height of the Russian Hoax.
And in Clinton’s response to the matter, she proclaimed that it’s nothing more than a “fake scandal.”
Earlier in February, we at Red Voice Media reported on the February 11th filing by John Durham that related to possible conflicts of interest regarding Michael Sussmann’s legal representation.

But outside of the conflicts of interest outlined in the motion filed by Durham, portions of the filing alluded to some alleged spying done by some of Hillary Clinton’s allies during the lead-up and aftermath of the 2016 election.
Specifically, Durham’s filing made mention that ‘Tech Executive-1 and his associates,’ reportedly Rodney Joffe, had been exploiting a ‘sensitive arrangement’ to spy on Trump which likely provided the means to further the Alfa Bank/Trump Organization hoax that led to Sussmann’s September 2021 indictment.
“The Government’s evidence at trial will also establish that among the Internet data Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited was domain name system (‘DNS’) Internet traffic pertaining to (i) a particular healthcare provider, (ii) Trump Tower, (iii) Donald Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and (iv) the Executive Office of the President of the United States(‘EOP’). (Tech Executive-1’s employer, Internet Company-1, had come to access and maintain dedicated servers for the EOP as part of a sensitive arrangement whereby it provided DNS resolution services to the EOP. Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.)”
On February 16th, Clinton took to Twitter to both share a Vanity Fair article that proclaims to exonerate Clinton of spying on Trump (it, in fact, doesn’t accomplish what it purports) and claim that these assertions against her are merely a “fake scandal.”
“Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it’s a day that ends in Y. The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie. For those interested in reality, here’s a good debunking of their latest nonsense.”

This Vanity Fair article in question was written by 37-year-old Bess Levin, where it seems her entire schtick at the publication is to draft op-eds bearing the general framing of Republicans/Orange Man=bad.
Levin’s piece claimed, in between frequent quips and jabs at conservative news outlets, that “a former candidate for office spying on the president? In the White House? That would be crazy! And you’re right—it would be crazy if something like that had actually happened. Which it didn’t.”
The author’s justification in this assertion was by linking back to a piece in The New York Times and most notably highlighted that “the special counsel also never claimed the Clinton campaign had paid Joffe’s company” and that “filing never said the White House data that came under scrutiny was from the Trump era”, adding that “lawyers for the data scientist…say this happened during— wait for it—Barack Obama’s presidency.”
There’s just one problem here with Levin’s reporting – it conveniently left out how the Durham filing noted that DNS data was also exploited at “Trump Tower” and “Donald Trump’s Central Park West apartment building.”
Basically, Levin is trying to discredit reports outlining how Durham’s filing alleges spying done on Trump during the period of his campaign in 2016 by Clinton-linked entities by way of her writing there’s no proof Clinton spied on Trump while he was “In the White House.”
