Hillary Clinton may finally get her dues.
Many Americans waited years for this to be done.
And one criminal trial is about to air all of Hillary Clinton’s dirty secrets.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
The first day in the trial of former Clinton campaign and Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann for allegedly lying to the FBI during a September 2016 meeting where Sussmann pushed a false conspiracy theory about Trump and Russia led to some newsworthy developments.
Prosecutor Deborah Brittain Shaw laid out why the jury was assembled for this case.
“This is a case about privilege … the privilege of a lawyer who thought that for the powerful the normal rules didn’t apply, that he could use the FBI as a political tool,” Shaw declared during opening statements. “The defendant lied to direct the power and resources of the FBI to his own ends and to serve the agendas of his clients.”
Shaw accused Sussmann of trying to manipulate the FBI to act on behalf of the Clinton campaign’s political needs.
“We are here because the FBI is our institution. It should not be used as a political tool for anyone – not Republicans. Not Democrats. Not anyone,” Shaw added. “Whatever your political views might be, they cannot be brought to your decisions.”
Sussmann allegedly lied to the FBI in the September meeting claiming he was not there on behalf of his client the Clinton campaign.
At the meeting, Sussmann presented a thumb drive supposedly containing data showing a link between a server at Trump Tower and Alfa Bank, a Kremlin-linked financial institution.
Shaw told the jury that Sussmann’s goal at this meeting was to trick the FBI into investigating Trump for colluding with the Russians so that the Clinton campaign could then deploy in the final days of the campaign to swing the election in Hillary’s favor.
“It was a plan to create an October Surprise on the eve of the presidential election — a plan that used and manipulated the FBI ……a plan that largely succeeded,” Shaw stated.
One of the prosecution’s first witnesses was FBI Supervisory Special Agent Scott Hellman.
Special agent Hellman testified that in no time at all he discovered that the data Sussmann turned over was garbage saying “it took him and another agent less than a day to ascertain the data and ‘white papers’ on two thumb drives Sussmann gave Baker did not support the Trump-Alfa Bank ‘secret connection’ allegation.”
The Russian collusion theory was an obvious hoax from day one.
And now there is public testimony the claim that Hillary Clinton tweeted out during the 2016 election – that a server in Trump Tower communicated with a Russian bank – was easily debunked nonsense.
