During Tuesday’s senate GOP leadership press briefing, Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) reacted to the latest filings unveiled by Special Counsel John Durham and called for twice failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to be held accountable.
On February 11, 2022, Special Counsel John Durham filed the government’s motion to inquire into potential conflicts of interest in the Michael Sussmann case — alleging that lawyers from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016 had paid to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower and later the White House, in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to bring to federal government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia.
“For years, the media parroted the Democratic narrative about Russia collusion, and now as we’re learning week after week, that was a complete lie,” Senator Rick Scott told reporters in reference the latest filing from Special Counsel John Durham.
“The latest with the Durham report is that the Clinton Campaign, the same group that fear-mongered Russian collusion, actually spied on the president of the United States. They spied on the president of the United States. They spied and they lied,” he said. “We need accountability. We need accountability for the Clinton Campaign. We need accountability for Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, because they were complicate in this”.
Sen. Scott was likely referring to Schiff’s ongoing claims there was Trump/Russia collusion “in plain sight”, and Nadler, who led continuous hearings, alleging Trump “violated the law six ways from Sunday” before Robert Mueller had testified over his 448-page report, which ultimately found: [T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
“The media needs to start doing their job, talk about exactly what’s coming out, and hold these people accountable. On top of that, Attorney General [Merrick] Garland, he needs to be out there making sure Durham has all resources he has. He needs to do a thorough investigation,” he also recommended.

Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told the New York Post in a statement, Special Counsel John Durham “has already uncovered several troubling findings” that the GOP leader said made clear that “Congress must exercise its oversight responsibilities as well.”
“Special Counsel John Durham’s continued investigation into the Russia hoax is essential to getting to the truth and protecting our democracy,” McCarthy said.
“Democrats and legacy media may want to sweep this alarming report under the rug, but if House Republicans earn the majority, we will use our oversight tools to determine whether federal funds were used, whether federal office-holders abused their power, and investigate other disturbing elements of this spying scheme to ensure nothing like it ever happens again,” he added.

Rodney Joffe (identified as Tech Executive-1 in the Michael 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.
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."
