Michael Sussmann, the infamous lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, will apparently not attempt to prove the false claims that he gave to the FBI regarding former President Donald J. Trump’s alleged, secretive back channel to a bank based in Russia, as reported by the New York Post.
Sussmann is currently standing trial for brazenly lying to the FBI. The trial comes about following the investigation of Special Counsel John Durham, who uncovered ample evidence of deliberate deception on the part of Democrats.
As a result, Durham offered an opportunity to Sussmann: Durham would not aim to disprove the likely false data that Sussmann provided to the FBI, provided that Sussmann also was in agreement with “[conceding] or [declining] to dispute the fact that no secret channel of communications actually existed,” per official court papers.
The defense attorney for Sussmann also proclaimed that he does not intend “to affirmatively prove the existence of a link between Alfa Bank and the Trump campaign,” as written by federal Judge Christopher Cooper, who is based in Washington, D.C.
Cooper also added that the federal courts “will hold the government to its word,” and the courts will also allow [the government] to put on extensive evidence about the accuracy of the data Mr. Sussmann provided to the FBI, unless Mr. Sussmann [chooses to do so] first.”
Cooper added that he will enable the government to publicize evidence that is indicative of the ultimate conclusions of the FBI, noting “the Court understands to be that the Alfa Bank allegations were unsubstantiated.”
Consequently, Sussmann has been charged with lying to former FBI General Counsel James Baker, specifically with regards to turning in three “white papers,” along with data files, that were allegedly connected to Trump and his collusion with Russia.
The rumors regarding collusion have since been disproven.
