Ex-Clinton Campaign Lawyer Found Not Guilty in Trump-Russia Trial

A federal jury in the heavily Democratic-leaning DC found Michael Sussmann not guilty of lying to the FBI, saying the prosecutors did not prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

According to the New York Post, the verdict took about a day and a half of deliberations.

A juror leaving the courthouse would only say, “The elements weren’t met,” when asked about the verdict by The Post.

“While we are disappointed in the outcome, we respect the jury’s decision and thank them for their service,” special counsel John Durham said in a statement.

Durham sought to prove Sussmann lied to the FBI when he claimed not to be acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign when he met with then-FBI general counsel James Baker in 2016.

During that meeting, he handed over two thumb drives and documents that alleged a secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and Kremlin-linked Alfa-Bank.

Prosecutor Deborah Brittain Shaw said the meeting was part of an effort to launch an “October surprise” on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

“We are here because the FBI is our institution that shouldn’t be used as a political tool for anyone — not Republicans, not Democrats, not anyone,” Shaw said.

Well, we figured he would be let off the hook. The Queen *itch still has too much power in the Deep State. including the power of Arkancide. But she the lapsed Methodist will face her just deserts, either in this life or in the next. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

When you have about three jurors in the pockets of the Clintons, how could it go wrong?

I can hardly wait for the left to start suffering from their own choices. It will happen , but the problem is that the rich and chosen will not suffer….only the poor and the don’t haves. For instance…watch Mr. Pelosi get out of his driving under the influence and causing an accident…Scott Free, just watch !

I’m not the least bit surprised!
The venue should of been changed.
Tainted jurors and judges, that’s the result we get.
Please call all Senators and tell them to lay off our second amendment rights. Please!
We have quite a few whimps on our side of the isle.

Well, it looks like the Clinton cartel wins yet another bought and paid for court decision, or so it seems.
