Michael Sussmann leaves a federal courthouse in Washington.

 

Prosecutors at the trial of Democratic attorney Michael Sussmann told a jury Friday that there is “overwhelming” evidence Sussmann lied to the FBI weeks before the 2016 election in order to obscure the role of the Clinton campaign in advancing allegations that then-candidate Donald Trump had a secret computer link to a Russian bank.

 

During closing arguments at Sussmann’s false-statement trial, special counsel John Durham’s team ridiculed the longtime cybersecurity lawyer’s claim that he was acting independently to help the FBI when he told the bureau’s top attorney of the alleged communications between a Trump server and one for Alfa Bank, the owners of which are close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

 

“The defendant knew that he had to hide his clients if there was any chance of getting his allegations into the FBI,” assistant special counsel Jonathan Algor said.

Could we have prevented this from Thailand?  Can an expat change things?   Before….what could we have done?    
 

or are we sheep and only react to news, not even a pebble in an ocean.  We are air that is controlled by a fan.

 

Beer!

Why isn't Clinton in the dock for this egregious trick? 

Maybe because criminal courts are for people charged with crimes? What crime did she commit?

Just to clear. Trump was impeached for pressuring a foreign leader to go after a potential opponent of his in the upcoming election. Keep in mind that for months before this meeting Trump was not responding to pleas from the Ukrainian govt to send the weapons that a law mandated be sent so that the Ukraininan govt could battle against Russian backed separatists.

The Senate acquitted Trump on both impeachment charges on February 5, 2020

And how were the jurors selected? A trial in the Senate is not comparable to a criminal trial. In fact, it's not clear that what Trump did was criminal. Which, by the way, is not a defense against impeachment. It was certainly sleazy and self-serving.

An attorney lied...I'm shocked. I may have to go and have a lie down now.

This was Hillary Clinton's attorney.  Trump's attorneys never lie.  🤣
