Attorneys for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign lawyer filed a motion Thursday to dismiss special counsel John Durham’s case against him, calling the matter “extraordinary prosecutorial overreach.”
The lawyer, Michael Sussmann, was charged last year in Durham’s Trump-Russia investigation after he was accused of lying to an FBI agent when he told them he wasn’t advising Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
In the motion to dismiss, Sussmann’s legal team said he did not make false statements to the FBI — and argued that prosecutors were pursuing him on a technicality.
His lawyers argued that Sussmann voluntarily met with FBI agents in September 2016 to “pass along information that raised national security concerns.”
Sussmann had raised concerns with the FBI about purported ties between the Trump Organization and Moscow’s Alfa Bank. Further review suggested the supposed digital fingerprints were likely the result of junk email.
“He met with the FBI, in other words, to provide a tip. There is no allegation in the indictment that the tip he provided was false. And there is no allegation that he believed that the tip he provided was false,” the motion says.
Durham shared breaking evidence showing Hillary’s team spied on Trump during the past weekend.
Americans think that spying on the President isn’t an immaterial matter.
Maybe Sussmann’s attorneys think that Sussmann’s actions were immaterial, but at the moment when they connect to the grander scheme of attempting a coup of the President of the US, Sussmann’s lies may be material.
Either way, this is bad news for Sussmann and Hillary, and this is why they want to get out of this now!
