Update: Durham’s case on Michael Sussman did not succeed. Michael Sussman, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign lawyer was found not guilty of lying to the FBI.
Prosecutors are relying on James Baker’s memory of the conversations and that presents huge problems that make it unlikely that there will ever be a conviction. The case is still however being investigated and will likely go to trial in May or June. Many never thought that the Clinton family would let Michael Sussmann go down like that anyway.
The truth is that a prosecutor can convict a ham sandwich if they want to, but the question is “does the prosecutor want to”? We may never know the truths about Russiagate. Sussmann’s attorneys have always said that he “has committed no crime” and that a prosecution “would be baseless, unprecedented and an unwarranted deviation from the apolitical and principled way in which the Department of Justice is supposed to do its work”.
The grand jury indictment accuses Sussmann of lying in a statement “to the General Counsel of the FBI by saying that he was not acting on behalf of any client in conveying particular allegations concerning a Presidential candidate, when in truth, and in fact, as the defendant well knew, he was acting on behalf of specific clients, namely, Tech Executive-1 Rodney Joffe, and the Clinton Campaign.”
Now, Michael Sussmann’s Russiagate indicted Perkins-Coie defense lawyer claims that pretrial discovery information substantially undermines the prosecution’s case. The indictment states that Sussmann told the bureau’s general counsel, James Baker, that he was not representing any client, but Sussmann was representing both Hillary Clinton’s campaign and a cyber expert that wanted to work for the Clinton’s when he lied to Baker saying that Alfa Bank was the conduit for Trump-Kremlin communications, with its servers transmitting messages to and from a server at Trump Tower in Manhattan. That was all later found to be untrue, and the trial is expected to begin in the early summer around May or June so we will just have to wait and see how this case plays out.

A new legal filing claims that Hillary Clinton paid hackers to mine data and link Trump to the hoax. The filing says, “Tech Executive 1 and his associates exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump”.
