First Trial In Durham Probe Starts Monday
The first trial resulting from the Durham probe is starting Monday.
The trial is surrounding whether 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann faces justice for lying to the FBI.
The first trial resulting from Special Counsel John Durham’s methodical investigation into the origins of the discredited Trump-Russia collusion narrative opens Monday as 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann faces justice for allegedly lying to the FBI.
Durham alleges Sussmann lied in September 2016 when he told then-FBI-General-Counsel James Baker that he was not working on behalf of any client while feeding the federal law enforcement agency since-debunked allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump.
Judge Christopher Cooper, appointed to the bench by former President Barack Obama, will preside in the trial in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The proceeding begins at 9 a.m. Eastern time.
