Hillary Clinton got some bad news in court that will make the Deep State sweat

Americans are finally seeing the evidence behind the origins of the Russian collusion hoax.

It’s even worse than anyone thought.

And now, Hillary Clinton got some bad news in court that will make the Deep State sweat.

Special counsel John Durham’s trial of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann kicked off on Tuesday.

Durham charged Sussmann with making false statements to the FBI during a September 2016 meeting when Sussmann tried to get the FBI to investigate Trump for colluding with the Russians based on a bogus story about a server in Trump Tower linking up with the Alfa Bank.

In her opening statement, prosecutor Deborah Brittain Shaw laid out why Sussmann was on trial.

“This is a case about privilege . . . the privilege of a lawyer who thought that for the powerful the normal rules didn’t apply, that he could use the FBI as a political tool,” Shaw told the jury. “The defendant lied to direct the power and resources of the FBI to his own ends and to serve the agendas of his clients.”

Shaw added that Sussmann tried to drag the FBI into the 2016 election for partisan gain.

“We are here because the FBI is our institution. It should not be used as a political tool for anyone – not Republicans. Not Democrats. Not anyone,” Shaw continued. “Whatever your political views might be, they cannot be brought to your decisions.”

Shaw told jurors that Sussmann conjured up a false conspiracy theory about the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians as an 11th hour ploy to swing the election to Hillary Clinton.

“It was a plan to create an October Surprise on the eve of the Presidential election — a plan that used and manipulated the FBI . . . a plan that largely succeeded,” Shaw declared.

An FBI agent’s testimony was even more damning for Sussmann and the Clinton campaign as the agent told jurors the “evidence” Sussmann provided to back up his claim of Trump-Russian collusion was so flimsy it took a ridiculously short period of time to debunk the claim.

FBI Supervisory Special Agent Scott Hellman admitted during his testimony that “it took him and another agent less than a day to ascertain the data and ‘white papers’ on two thumb drives Sussmann gave Baker did not support the Trump-Alfa Bank ‘secret connection’ allegation.”
