It looks like a federal judge slapped down Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann’s request to have John Durham’s case against him dismissed.
As you may remember, Sussmann was indicted last year for blatantly lying to the FBI.
According to Yahoo, U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper delivered the bad news to Sussmann and Hillary Clinton after making his final decision. Cooper explained, “The battle lines thus are drawn, but the Court cannot resolve this standoff prior to trial,” the judge explained.
After his decision, Judge Cooper said, “The battle lines thus are drawn, but the Court cannot resolve this standoff prior to trial.”
Sussmann is under investigation because he told James Baker that he wasn’t working for ‘any client.” He then met with the FBI and presented fake evidence to them which claimed that Trump Tower was in close communication Kremlin-tied Alfa Bank.
“Specifically, Sussmann allegedly told Baker that he was not attending the meeting on behalf of any client when, in fact, he had assembled and was conveying the information on behalf of two specific clients: (1) a technology-industry executive named Rodney Joffe and (2) the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign,” Judge Cooper explained.
The trail is expected to begin in mid-May.
