Michael Sussmann told the CIA he was "not representing a client" when he backed Trump-Russia collusion claims in early 2017, a former agency officer testified Friday.

Kevin P., who stepped down from the CIA a few years ago after more than 32 years of service, testified Friday about a Feb. 9, 2017, meeting Sussmann had asked and obtained with the CIA and said, “He said he was not representing a client.”

The remarks are similar to the lie special counsel John Durham accuses Sussmann of making to the FBI in 2016.

Sussmann was indicted last September for supposedly hiding his clients, Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and Rodney Joffe, from FBI general counsel James Baker in September 2016 after pushing claims of a secret backchannel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa-Bank.

Durham says Sussmann similarly concealed his client, Joffe, when he pushed further conspiracy claimed to the CIA in February 2017.

The special counsel said Sussmann pushed the Russian bank allegations and also claimed data he had access to “demonstrated that Trump and/or his associates were using supposedly rare, Russian-made wireless phones,” called Cat Phones, “in the vicinity of the White House and other locations.” Durham found "no support for these allegations'' and revealed the CIA “concluded in early 2017” that the Alfa-Bank and YotaPhone information was not “technically plausible."

A senior officer in counterintelligence missions at the time, Kevin P. said Sussmann told him other lawyers at Perkins Coie represented Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, but “he made it clear that he did not have any connection with that.” He noted that “he had contacts that provided him the information” related to the Alfa Bank allegations, as well as what the CIA veteran referred to as “secondary information” on “another technical security threat.”

Sussmann supplied the CIA with thumb drives and white papers, similar to what he had done with the FBI. Kevin P. said, “In the meeting, I said to Mr. Sussmann that it was likely this information would be forwarded to the FBI.”

After the meeting, Steve M., a CIA employee who was also at the meeting, sent a draft memo to Kevin P. that day. A final version of that memo, corrected by Kevin P., reads, “Mr. Sussmann advised that he was not representing a particular client and the information he was volunteering to us was not privileged. His contacts wished to provide information to the [U.S. government] through Mr. Sussmann, preferring anonymity citing a potential threat from the Russian Intelligence Services.”
