Obama-Appointed Judge in Sussmann Trial Limits Clinton Campaign ‘Joint Venture’ Evidence


Recommended Posts

"The federal judge overseeing the trial of a 2016 Clinton campaign lawyer charged by special counsel John Durham of lying to the FBI has decided to limit evidence allegedly showing a “joint venture” to spread a false narrative about then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

On Saturday, U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper, an Obama appointee, ruled that Durham’s office must limit evidence and testimony that he planned to use in the trial of Democratic lawyer Michael Sussmann to show the combined effort involving Hillary Clinton’s campaign, several Democratic operatives, a private political opposition research firm, and a number of technology researchers, National Review reported."



"Sussmann has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent during a September 2016 meeting with the FBI. The Perkins Coie lawyer allegedly failed to disclose his clients, including Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, to the FBI when he offered information in 2016 that he claimed demonstrated a secret channel between the Trump Organization and Kremlin-allied Alfa Bank. The claim has since been debunked.

During the meeting, Sussmann allegedly falsely claimed that he was not at the meeting on behalf of any client. Perkins Coie represented the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee at the time."
