Richard Grenell, who served as acting director of the United States National Intelligence under President Donald Trump, believes the U.S. government may have assisted a tech company in infiltrating Trump Tower and White House servers.
Grenell’s speculation follows new allegations filed on February 11, 2022 by Special Counsel Durham. Mr. Durham filed the government’s motion to inquire into potential conflicts of interest in the Michael Sussmann case, which alleges Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign paid a tech company to “infiltrate” Trump Tower and White House servers in a bid to establish a link to Russia.
Durham’s filing revealed how Clinton’s election campaign paid money to a tech firm to “infiltrate” servers that were at Trump Tower, and later the White House. According to a filing from Special Counsel John Durham, the aim was to try and smear Trump by linking him to Russia, which had been accused of meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
Rodney Joffe (identified as Tech Executive-1 in the Sussmann indictment and in the latest filing discussing the conflict) exploited proprietary – and perhaps classified – data provided by DARPA to further their own political attacks, and how that might result in charges. It was later confirmed that two former DARPA employees have given grand jury testimony.
According to Durham, Joffe and his associates exploited internet data from “the Executive Office of the President of the United States” to further their own political agenda. They had come to possess this data as part of a “sensitive arrangement” with the U.S. government.
Richard Grenell told Carl Higbie Saturday on Newsmax’s “The Count”: “Durham’s filing makes it clear that this internet company … continually paid by the Clinton Campaign, was infiltrating the White House, the Executive Office of the president. They were spying, not only on the campaign of Donald Trump, but Donald Trump as president”. Continued Below
“Now think about that. I believe that there is no possible way that you can be spying and monitoring computers at the White House, unless you have the help of the U.S. government,” Grenell speculated.
Higbie responded, “So, you’re telling me, you think somebody was inside the government, working and giving information to a private tech spy firm on a sitting president of the United States, based on political opposition?”
“No. It’s a little different than that, Carl, because Durham has filed in court. And in his filings, he makes it clear that this internet company was spying on Donald Trump as president. Now he makes that very clear. This internet company can’t break into the White House computers on their own. They had to have had help from inside the U.S. government. That is my point,” Grenell clarified. Continued Below
Mr. Grenell also called for an “immediate” inspector general investigation “of the intelligence community-wide agency”.
“Did anyone know about this particular company spying on the president of the United States, and did they help in any way? I want to know exactly who in the U.S. government knew this and why they didn’t speak out,” he added.
This wasn't limited to the Office of the President of the U.S.
They also exploited data from Trump Tower, another Trump building, and a "healthcare provider."

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified two heavily redacted Russia-related documents in October 2020, including handwritten notes from former CIA Director John Brennan showing he briefed then-President Barack Obama in 2016 on an unverified Russian intelligence report.
The report claimed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton planned in July 2016 on tying then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia’s hack of the Democratic National Committee to distract from her improper use of a private email server.
