Special Counsel John Durham on Thursday secured an indictment against a prominent Democrat lawyer alleging he developed and fed information to the FBI during the 2016 campaign suggesting Donald Trump was colluding with Russia without disclosing he was being paid by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The indictment handed up against Michael A. Sussmann charges he made a false statement in fall 2016 to then-FBI general counsel James Baker that he was providing the information as an ordinary citizen and not on behalf of a client.
In fact, the indictment said, Sussmann charged his time for the meeting with the FBI to the Clinton campaign as well as much of his work developing a white paper alleging computer communications between an Alfa Bank server in Moscow and Trump Tower in New York. more
