A criminal investigation has Hillary Clinton and the Democrats on edge.
There was a massive development in the case.
And this judge’s ruling about Hillary Clinton will have Trump supporters wondering one thing.
Special Counsel John Durham is preparing to go to trial against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann for allegedly making false statements to the FBI.
During a September 2016 meeting where Sussmann presented lies and conspiracy theories about the Trump campaign colluding with Russia, Sussmann told the FBI he was not there on behalf of his client, the Clinton campaign.
Durham intends to show how the Clinton campaign and its agents engaged in a “joint venture” to frame Donald Trump for conspiring with Russia.
Key to this case were emails between the Clinton campaign, Perkins Coie – the law firm Sussmann worked at – and Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm the Clinton campaign hired through Perkins Coie to put together the now debunked Steele dossier.
The Clinton campaign argued that 38 emails between the campaign, Fusion GPS, and Perkins Coie were protected by attorney-client privilege.
Durham countered that these emails were essential to proving the conspiracy to present false evidence of Russian collusion to the federal government in hopes of sparking an investigation into Donald Trump.
But Barack Obama-appointed Judge Christopher Cooper ruled 16 of the 38 emails Durham requested were protected under attorney-client privilege.
However, Judge Cooper also ruled that although Durham will get access to the other 28 emails, he cannot present them in court.
The National Review reports, “District Court judge Christopher Cooper ruled Thursday that none of the 38 emails exchanged between lawyer Michael Sussmann, the Clinton campaign, and opposition research firm Fusion GPS — and submitted as evidence by Special Counsel John Durham — are admissible in Sussmann’s impending trial…”
“…The defense had argued that the emails were all protected by attorney-client privilege and attorney-work-product doctrine. Cooper ruled that only 16 of the messages were protected for those reasons, and directed Sussmann’s attorneys to turn over the remaining 22 messages to Durham. However, Cooper said he will not allow Durham to introduce any those unprotected 22 emails during Sussmann’s trial due to the alleged untimeliness of Durham’s request.”
Judge Cooper’s ruling left Trump supporters frustrated and wondering if the truth about the Russian Collusion hoax will ever become public.
