According to a new report from the Washington Free Beacon, President Joe Biden’s campaign also hired the tech firm that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton allegedly hired to spy on former President Donald Trump and link him to Russia.
Investigative reporter Chuck Ross noted in his report, which was published early Tuesday, that FEC records indicate only two campaigns have ever paid the tech firm in question — Neustar Information Services: Biden’s and Clinton’s.
Biden campaign paid the tech firm at center of Durham investigation

From the Free Beacon’s report:
The Biden campaign paid nearly $20,000 to a cybersecurity firm at the center of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.
The campaign paid Neustar Information Services in 2020 for accounting and compliance work, according to Federal Election Commission records. According to Durham, Neustar’s chief technology officer, Rodney Joffe, accessed sensitive web traffic data that the company maintained on behalf of the White House executive office in order to collect “derogatory” information about Donald Trump. Joffe allegedly provided the information to Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who in turn gave it to the CIA during a meeting in February 2017. Durham charged Sussmann in September with lying to the FBI about his investigation of Trump.
As Ross noted in the report, the fact that Biden paid the same firm during the 2020 presidential election also raises the obvious question of whether or not the firm was paid for the same type of activity — namely, “whether Joffe continued snooping on Trump in the most recent election.”
Ross also noted that Joffe’s activities with regard to the information allegedly funneled to Clinton may or may not have even been known to Neustar executives at the time.
“Durham alleges that Joffe and his associates ‘mined’ the White House traffic data ‘for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.’ Joffe, who retired from Neustar in September, allegedly told associates that he was investigating Trump in order to please ‘VIPs’ on the Clinton campaign. He also allegedly wanted a job in the Hillary Clinton administration,” Ross reported.
Several bombshells have been uncovered in Special Counsel John Durham’s most recent court filings, including information indicating that Clinton hired Neustar to “infiltrate” Trump Tower during the campaign and then do the same to the White House once Trump was elected.
As The Daily Wire reported:
The filing says that during the summer of 2016, the tech executive worked with Sussman, an investigative firm retained by a law firm on behalf of the Clinton campaign, and employees at tech companies to gather “data.”
“In connection with these efforts, Tech Executive-1 exploited his access to non-public and/or proprietary Internet data,” the filing states. “Tech Executive-1 also enlisted the assistance of researchers at a U.S.-based university who were receiving and analyzing large amounts of Internet data in connection with a pending federal government cybersecurity research contract.”
“Tech Executive-1 tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” Durham states. “In doing so, Tech Executive-1 indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPs,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”
Additional reports have indicated that Durham’s investigation is heating up and more witnesses are coming forward to cooperate with the probe. Fox News anchor Dana Perino responded to that news during Monday’s broadcast of “The Five,” saying, “It sort of means to me that people just don’t want to go to jail so they start talking.”
