Biden Campaign Hired ‘Cybersecurity Firm’ Implicated By Durham Investigation In ‘Trump Spying’

Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign paid almost $20,000 to Neustar Information Services, a cybersecurity firm being scrutinized as part of Special Counsel John Durham’s Investigation into the Trump-Russia hoax.

According to Federal Elections Commission public records, Neustar was used by the Biden campaign for accounting and compliance work. The Durham Investigation has indicated that Rodney Joffe, Neustar’s Chief Technology Officer, accessed confidential data maintained by Neustar on behalf of the White House to search for and collect “derogatory” information about President Donald Trump.

Joffe is alleged to have provided collected information to attorney Michael Sussmann, working for the Hillary Clinton campaign. Sussmann then provided the data to the CIA in a February 2017 meeting. Sussmann was charged by Durham last September with lying to the FBI about his data collection regarding Trump.

The Biden campaign’s hiring of Neustar raises questions about whether Joffe was still spying on Trump during the 2020 election cycle. Federal Election Commission records indicate that the only presidential campaigns that have ever employed Nuestar were Clinton in 2016 and Biden in 2020. Neustar’s executives and staffers made contributions to the Biden campaign of almost $18,000.

Joffe retired from Neustar last September and has allegedly told confidants that he was mining data about Trump to gain favor with “VIPs” inside the Clinton campaign. He was also allegedly hoping to land a position inside a prospective Hillary Clinton Administration.

Trump has called for criminal prosecution of the persons who spied on his digital information. He said the scandal is “far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate.”

Last Friday, court filings submitted by Durham said that Joffe and his associates captured internet traffic from the White House executive office, Trump’s Manhattan apartment building, and from Trump Tower. Durham said Joffe could access the information through a “sensitive arrangement” between Neustar and the White House executive office.

Durham has also alleged that lawyers for the Clinton campaign told Jake Sullivan and other campaign staffers about alleged connections discovered between Trump and Russian banks. Sullivan also served the Biden campaign and is now Biden’s National Security Adviser, carrying the exact security clearance as the President. Sullivan’s wife is counsel to Attorney General Merrick Garland, who oversees the Durham Investigation and the release of any information from that investigation.
