Rep. Jim Jordan: Sussmann trial yielded damning facts about Hillary Clinton

Though many were frustrated and disappointed by the acquittal this week of former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (OH) believes that the trial itself yielded significant revelations about the failed presidential candidate that should have her worried, as the Washington Examiner reports.

In the first prosecution to emerge from Special Counsel John Durham’s probe of the origins of the Russia collusion investigation, a Washington, D.C. jury found the Democrat-linked attorney not guilty of lying to the FBI when he claimed not to be representing a particular client when he took the information to the agency claiming to establish a link between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank back in 2016, as Fox News noted.

Right before the ruling in the case was handed down, however, Jordan made an appearance on Fox News’ The Faulkner Focus and discussed what he felt was the pivotal takeaway from the trial.

Questions about Sussmann’s culpability aside, Jordan declared that the critical revelation from the case “was what we learned a few days back when we learned that [former Secretary of State] Clinton told Sussmann to take false information to the press that was also then taken to the FBI.”

“Step back and think about this – this is the former secretary of state, this is the former first lady, this is the former United States senator from the state of New York, and candidate for one of the major parties for president of the United States,” Jordan explained.

“And she’s encouraging a false narrative to be taken to the press. And, of course, it was also taken to the FBI. I think that is huge,” Jordan added, noting that an admission of those facts came not from a partisan Republican, but from former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, who testified to them under oath at trial.

Following the acquittal, former Attorney General William Barr – who appointed Durham to the special counsel role – defended the prosecution’s efforts in the Sussmann case, saying that the team “did an exceptionally able job,” according to The Hill.

Expanding on Jordan’s point, Barr stated that Durham’s team succeeded in “digging out very important facts and presenting a compelling case to the jury,” noting that “[w]hile he did not succeed in getting a conviction from the D.C. jury, I think he accomplished something far more important, which is he brought out the truth in two important areas.”

One of those achievements, in Barr’s estimation, was that Durham’s team “crystallized the central role” that Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign played in espousing a narrative that former President [Donald] Trump’s campaign was colluding with Russia, and whether the special counsel is planning to pursue additional threads that will further underscore her diabolical complicity in one of the dirtiest political tricks the nation has ever seen, only time will tell.
