MSNBC Host Defends Trump-Russia Hoax, Slams Durham Probe

MSNBC legal analyst Barbara McQuade claimed that the recent indictment from John Durham against Clinton-connected attorney Michael Sussmann is a politically motivated “hoax.” Despite Sussmann being charged with lying to the FBI regarding his ties to the Clinton campaign after he pushed the FBI to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia.

Fox News reports:

“Before putting a person through the expense, burden and stigma of criminal charges, a prosecutor should make a determination ‘that the admissible evidence will probably be sufficient to obtain and sustain a conviction.’ This case comes woefully short of that standard,” McQuade wrote in a column on Sunday.

McQuade argued the case is “weak on the merits,” especially since Sussmann’s ties to the Clintons were public knowledge, particularly to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker, to whom he provided the Alfa Bank tip.

“So even if Sussmann misrepresented what motivated him to bring the information to the FBI that day, Baker knew that Sussmann was aligned with Clinton,” McQuade wrote. “If the FBI was going to treat information from Clinton’s camp with skepticism, Sussmann had provided all of the information necessary for the FBI to form that suspicion.”

Then McQuade suggested that the Durham probe is politically motivated.

“Mueller found that the Trump campaign shared polling data with a Russia intelligence officer, met with Russians to obtain dirt on Clinton, and coordinated messaging around the disclosure of stolen email messages. With this indictment, Trump can now say that it was Clinton who brought information to the FBI about links to Russia in the first place and yet again claim the Mueller investigation was a hoax,” McQuade wrote. “Instead of a quest for justice, the indictment appears to be one more shot fired in the information war.

Where was this silly Bimbo when Muller was using the prosecutorial system to harass General Mike Flynn, Roger Stone and others? She’s just another Clintonoid (that’s a Hemerhoid on Hillary’s bottom).

No honest people at MSNBC, CNN, and most other Fake News (MSM). They have had to lie about everything Democrats don’t like, because otherwise they couldn’t print anything. Which would be a big improvement, but it is hell on the ratings. It makes it easy to know what to believe, though, not anything that doesn’t come from NEWSMAX.

Any honest judicial department with integrity would investigate ALL the untimely deaths that lead back to the Clinton’s not to mention all the corruption, obstruction of justice and treasonous acts that we are already aware of
