“Our Legal System is CORRUPT, our Judges (and Justices!) are highly partisan, compromised, or just plain scared, our Borders are OPEN, our Elections are Rigged, Inflation is RAMPANT, gas prices and food costs are ‘through the roof,’ our Military ‘Leadership’ is Woke, our Country is going to HELL, and Michael Sussmann is not guilty,” wrote Trump on his platform, Truth Social. “How’s everything else doing? Enjoy your day!!!” former President Donald Trump posted on Truth Social Tuesday.
He was referencing the acquittal of former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann in the Russian collusion case, which happen earlier that day.
Not surprisingly, a federal jury in Washington DC acquitted Sussmann, finding him not guilty of lying to the FBI in regards to him telling then-FBI general Counsel James Baker that he was not bringing forth the Russia collusion allegations on behalf of the Clinton Campaign and an internet executive when the pair met in 2016. This despite the fact that Sussman was working for the Clinton campaign at the time.
One of the most notable revelations from the trial was fact that Hillary Clinton had authorized the dissemination of the Russia Collusion story to the press.
Special Counsel John Durham indicted Sussmann last year, stating that the Clinton Campaign lawyer had lied to his prosecutors and the FBI during the investigation.
In response to the verdict, Durham said, “While we are disappointed in the outcome, we respect the jury’s decision and thank them for their service. I also want to recognize and thank the investigators and the prosecution team for their dedicated efforts in seeking truth and justice in this case.”
It appears that Durham’s plan of convicting Sussman and then going up the food chain to bigger names involved in the Russian collusion conspiracy is damaged with this acquittal as Washington DC jurors protected their partisan own.
