Former White House national security official and children’s book author Kash Patel has suggested that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) move its Russia hoax trials outside of the D.C. area to ensure an untainted jury and judge. This statement comes in the wake of Michael Sussmann’s acquittal on Tuesday.
A federal jury has found former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann not guilty of lying to the FBI. The verdict came midway through the second day of deliberations following a two-week trial on a single count of making false statements to a federal agent.
The Sussman trial shifted to the defense team on Wednesday after the prosecution finished presenting their evidence against the former federal prosecutor and partner at Perkins Coie, one of the Clinton Cabal’s go-to firms.
