Rodney Joffe, a technology executive who was one of Michael Sussman’s clients, used confidential information to carry out opposition research against Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
Joffe’s research supported Sussman’s allegations that linked President Trump to the Russian Alfa Bank in an attempt to show that he was conducting illicit dealings with them.
Joffe was retained by the FBI as a confidential informant, using his access to data as a technology executive to provide information about President Trump’s business dealings.
After it was discovered that he was working with Sussman, who is currently indicted for lying to the FBI about representing the Clinton campaign, he was terminated as a confidential source.

“The technology executive who was one of Michael Sussmann’s clients when Sussmann took sketchy claims to the U.S. government was terminated as a confidential informant by the FBI in 2021, prosecutors revealed during Sussmann’s trial on May 17.
Rodney Joffe, the executive, exploited his access to non-public data at multiple technology companies to conduct opposition research into then-presidential candidate Donald Trump ahead of the 2016 election, according to court filings. The firm Joffe worked for, Neustar Security Services, had a Domain Name System (DNS) contract with the office of the presidency in 2016.
Joffe was a confidential informant for the FBI but was terminated “for cause” in 2021, prosecutors said.
Brittain Shaw, one of the prosecutors on Special Counsel John Durham’s team, revealed the information during the questioning of FBI agent David Martin.
The termination was because of how Joffe was involved with the scheme to compile information on the alleged connection between Trump’s business and a Russian bank, Andrew DeFilippis, another prosecutor, said later.”
U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper, an Obama appointee who is presiding over the trial, told prosecutors not to bring the subect up again after instructing them to leave the room.
