The jury on Tuesday found Michael Sussmann not guilty of making a false statement to the FBI in September 2016 when he said he was not working on behalf of any client, when he brought information alleging a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.
After a two week trial, and more than a day of deliberations, the jury found that Special Counsel John Durham’s team had not proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Sussmann’s statement was a lie, and that he was, in fact, working on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and technology executive Rodney Joffe when he brought two thumb drives and a white paper alleging a Trump-Russia connection.
Sussmann was charged with one count of making a false statement to the FBI during his meeting with then-FBI General Counsel James Baker on Sept. 19, 2016.
Predictable with that jury. The evidence against him was overwhelming. https://t.co/GkzINNwGy9

This what happens when you try a Democratic operative in a city with Saddam Hussein-like election returns for Democrats

I'm shocked the DC Clinton donor jury let Clinton's lawyer off… HAHAHA just kidding, absolutely no one is shocked. Hunter Biden off next then Paul Pelosi etc etc. We all know how this goes by now… Only people not tied to the establishment DC swamp ever face accountability.

The evidence disclosed in this case about the origins of the biggest U.S. political fraud in recent history cannot be re-hidden, the voting public has seen it, long expected it. More trials to come.
