Former Clinton Attorney Acquitted in Russia Hoax Trial

On Tuesday, a federal grand jury found former Hillary Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann not guilty of lying to the FBI.

The New York Post reports:

The verdict came midway through the second day of deliberations following a two-week-long trial on a single count of making false statements to a federal agent.

Prosecutors unsuccessfully sought to prove that Sussmann deliberately lied to then-FBI general counsel James Baker by claiming not to be acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign and an Internet executive when the two met in 2016.

During the sitdown at FBI headquarters, Sussmann handed over two thumb drives and a number of “white papers” that purportedly showed a secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and a Kremlin-linked financial institution, Alfa Bank.

The plan, prosecutor Deborah Brittain Shaw said in her opening statement, was for internet researchers to find disparaging information about Trump and Russia, leak the findings to the press and then for Sussmann to lie to the FBI to spark an investigation into the since-discredited information — all in a bid to create an “October surprise” on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

The ruling delivers a brutal blow to Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Russia hoax’s origins.

Trump responded to the news on TRUTH Social.

“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,” raged Trump.

  1. You knew they wouldn’t convict any of the Clinton gang. What a travesty of justice. If that guy isn’t guilty neither is Hitler.

  2. How could anybody think that crook would get an unbiased jury in Washington DC? The Clintons own that town and the Democraps

  3. since the jury was made up of lying scum bag commie democrats, why wouldn’t they over look felony lying!
    Rules and Laws for thee, but not for the scum bag commie democrats!

  4. This whole rules for thee crap is destroying our country….of course that’s the whole point. This is beyond infuriating.

  5. No trial should be allowed in Washington DC . In addition these government agencies need to be relocated throughout the US so they aren’t a world removed from reality lived by citizens.

  6. Does this surprise anyone??? Teflon Clinton will not be held accountable for anything!!!
    No matter what she does everyone is afraid by convicting her of anything would cause
    a mysterious demise of anyone who tried to take her down. She thinks she owns the right
    to commit any crime because no one will ever at the end of the day make her pay!!! This will allow her to continue her unlawful acts as she see’s fit!!!! People wonder why these
    people get a free ride for their crimes…..just take a look at her …..

  7. I would say “unbelievable” but that would be a waste of breath! How could have the prosecution agree to seat all those Clinton affiliated jurors?! What did they expect the outcome to be?

  8. What do you expect with a jury from the LIBERAL District of Columbia. The Judge allowed admitted members of the jury pool to remain….

  9. The fix was in on this trial before it got started. The Judge’s wife is a Clinton Attorney and most of the jurors are associated with Sussmann or are big time Democrat Contributors. This trial should have been related outside the D.C. Cesspool.

  10. Here we go again! If the people of the United States don’t wake up as to what is going on they are sinking even further into abysmal dystopia!!

  11. Sounds like just another big payoff. Seems like there’s a lot of that going around D.C. nowadays.

  12. Perhaps they were afraid to vote guilty, past incidents proves it’s not safe to go against the Clintons or their cohorts.

  13. What did they expect with a jury of Clinton donners? And a Clinton judge? However it does leave the door open for a civil suit not held in DC! As he did admit to giving them the false information.. And Hillary’s manager said Hillary gave the okay to spread it!

  14. Yeah, use to be western justice before we became so called civilized, guess we need to go back to western justice as there is no justice in America today.


  16. We all know the truth don’t care what the jury says we just have to do our part on Election Day

  17. No it pays to have a jury full of Clinton supporters! Which is what they had and this verdict is BS! This trial is a mis trial and needs to be held in a court where Hillay is not hanging over the jury.

  18. what did you expect? With a demo judge and jury, look at what we learned.

    november is coming, and maybe we can have a new re-trail.

  19. and who is surprised by this?
    There is no law and order anymore.
    If you are a DNC member, you get away with anything including murder.
    The legal system is now nothing more than a weapon the dems use to take out anyone that opposes them.

  20. The truth was displayed for all to see. That is the point. The jury was rigged. That fact, too, was on display. There is a two-tier justice system because we allow it. This jury was not unbiased. The next trial needs to be outside of D.C.

  21. We should all be so lucky to have a Jury so tainted as this one. There is absolutely no justice in this Country if you are a Conservative, but when you can lie to the FBI, give false statements to secure FISA warrants, etc. and walk away scot free, where is the justice. We have people still locked up in solitary because they were at the Capitol in January, who have never had a trial or been prosecuted in any way! BLM and ANTIFA. an burn down public buildings, destroy public property, etc. and never be arrested, and have their rioting called “mostly peaceful demonstrations!” What has this country become under this criminal regime?
