The rope is getting tighter and tighter…
Despite the indictments which have already been handed down, former Clinton lawyer Micheal Sussmann has reportedly filed a motion to dismiss the case against him.
Of course he would. wouldn’t he?
Sussmann, who is a lawyer by trade likely knows the ins and outs of any pending legal action against him, but even this may not save him from Durham’s crusade for justice.
When the full weight of evidence is brought forward in the legal proceedings, and the time to start making deals comes, I wonder how loyal Sussmann will be to his former client…
Here’s what we currently know:

In a filing late last night accusing Durham of repeatedly including gratuitous & misleading info in filings to stoke Trumpy conspiracy theories, Sussmann's lawyers also say the White House-Russian smartphone data came from the Obama — not Trump — era. https://t.co/OCFcGu5e5r pic.twitter.com/6BxRYj4TZT

The Epoch Times provided more details on Sussmann’s motion:
“Defendant Michael A. Sussmann, by and through undersigned counsel and pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 12(b)(3)(B), respectfully moves this Court to dismiss the Indictment because the single count therein ‘fail[s] to state an offense,’” Sussmann’s lawyers wrote on Feb. 17.
Previously, the former Perkins Coie lawyer pleaded not guilty to charges of lying to the FBI.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer—Michael Sussman—wants Durham’s case against him dropped & spying allegations struck from federal court record.
In a recent Durham filing, he asserted spying evidence is “valid” & media misinterpretations don’t “undermine” facts.

Durham's filing is here. The accusations shouldn't be taken as truth yet. He says he will prove them at trial. But the way liberal outlets completely ignore this shows the bubble in which liberals live: they just have no idea about any of this:https://t.co/vSr02g5QzA

Durham’s response came via Newsmax:
”As an initial matter, defense counsel has presumed the government’s bad faith and asserts that the Special Counsel’s Office intentionally sought to politicize this case, inflame media coverage, and taint the jury pool,” Durham’s filing Thursday read. ”That is simply not true.
”If third parties or members of the media have overstated, understated, or otherwise misinterpreted facts contained in the government’s motion, that does not in any way undermine the valid reasons for the government’s inclusion of this information,” Durham’s latest filing added.
