Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), during an interview on “Fox News Sunday”, weighed in on Special Counsel John Durham’s latest court filing, saying that “if what [he] is alleging is true … it’s a lot bigger than Watergate”, adding, “People need to go to jail for this, if these allegations are true”.
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.
“We have to see what the facts are, but I’ll tell you, the allegations to what Durham filed … in a federal court is deeply concerning,” Senator Cruz expressed.
“What Durham alleged as a federal prosecutor, as a special prosecutor, is that a lawyer for the Hillary Clinton Campaign conspired with a big tech executive to monitor and spy on Donald Trump, to spy on him at his home, to spy on him at his office, and indeed, they were spying on the White House itself. They were spying on a sitting president,” Cruz explained of Durham’s filings.
“[We] remember when President Trump said, ‘The Democrats are spying on me’, and the corporate media collectively laughed at him, they mocked at him. They said, ‘What a ridiculous claim for him to make’. Well, if what Special Counsel Durham is alleging is true, that — what Donald Trump said, was absolutely right. And to the extent Hillary Clinton is complicit with this, her campaign is complicit with her, her lawyers are complicit with it, big tech is complicit with it,” he said.
“If this is true, it’s a lot bigger than Watergate … and people need to go to jail for this, if these allegations are true,” Mr. Cruz stated. Continued Below

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."
