A jury has returned an indictment against Michael Sussmann, a lawyer whose firm represented the 2016 Clinton campaign, for lying to the FBI about not representing “any client” when he presented them with allegations a few secret Trump Organization back-channel to a Russian bank .
Was Trump Right?: It is the second criminal charge stemming from special counsel John Durham’s review of possible misconduct by the Intelligence Community and prosecutors who investigated the 2016 Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
In reality, the indictment alleges, Sussmann was representing a “U.S. internet company” and therefore the Clinton campaign.
The FBI’s investigation of the Alfa Bank connection later concluded there was insufficient evidence of a secret communications channel with the Trump Organization.
