Case against former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer can proceed, judge rules

Special Counsel John Durham’s case against a former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer charged with lying to the FBI will be allowed to proceed, a judge rule on Wednesday.

Michael Sussman, the lawyer charged in the case, called the ruling “absurd.”

“While Sussmann is correct that certain statements might be so peripheral or unimportant to a relevant agency decision or function to be immaterial under § 1001 as matter of law, the Court is unable to make that determination as to this alleged statement before hearing the government’s evidence. Any such decision must therefore wait until trial,” U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper wrote.

The case involved Sussman lying to the FBI over former President Donald Trump’s connections to Russia’s Alfa Bank. The claims were later proven to be false.

The new ruling will allow a trial to move forward related to the charges that could show Hillary’s campaign was involved in illegal actions that threatened to change the outcome of the 2016 election.

The case is scheduled to begin on May 16.

I’m so glad that someone is finally, really, looking into the illegal activity from that campaign! I pray that they find not only her manager, but her as well, guilty as charged of this and plenty of other things that she/they did!
