Michael Sussmann, Partner at Perkins Coie
A grand jury on Thursday returned an indictment against Hillary Clinton-linked Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI.
This is the second criminal charge stemming from John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion canard.
Sussman was accused of lying:
A federal grand jury has returned an indictment against cybersecurity attorney Michael Sussmann, who represented the Democratic National Committee in connection with the 2016 Russia hack, accusing him of lying to the FBI about who he was representing.
The grand jury indictment accuses Sussmann of lying when he “stated to the General Counsel of the FBI 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 and the Clinton Campaign.”
Sussman was reportedly pushing a tall tale where he was trying to connect Russia’s Alfa Bank with the Trump Organisation which was a complete lie.
We learned of another occasion where either Susman or former FBI Director Jim Comey was guilty of lying under oath in when transcripts of Sussman’s testimony to the Mueller gang were finally released.
During his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee Sussmann told the House Intelligence Committee that the FBI had access to the DNC servers.
