(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Happening Now: With a verdict that has stunned Special Counsel John Durham, who was hand-picked to investigate “Russiagate” by former President Donald Trump’s Attorney General when Trump was in office, the jury in the prosecution of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign lawyer, Michael Sussman, has found Sussman not guilty.
The New York Post recounts what happened inside and outside the courtroom today:
“A federal jury on Tuesday found former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann not guilty of lying to the FBI — finding special counsel John Durham did not prove his case beyond a reasonable doubt.
The verdict by a jury in heavily Democratic-leaning DC came midway through the second day of deliberations following a two-week trial on a single count of making false statements to a federal agent.” [emphasis added]
Durham had the following to say after losing a case he spent several years investigating:
“‘While we are disappointed in the outcome, we respect the jury’s decision and thank them for their service. I also want to recognize and thank the investigators and the prosecution team for their dedicated efforts in seeking truth and justice in this case.”
According to one juror who spoke after the verdict, “The elements [for a conviction] weren’t met.”
