Once again, the corrupt courts are trying to protect Hillary Clinton.
A federal judge just ruled in favor of blocking evidence that would reveal the extent of Clinton’s involvement in fabricating the hoax of Trump/Russia collusion.
The evidence in question would show that Michael Sussmann, Clinton’s former campaign attorney, took part in a “joint venture” to frame President Donald Trump for colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper ruled that the office of Special Counsel John Durham must limit the evidence it plans to use in court that would tie Sussmann to Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
Here’s the kicker…
Judge Cooper is an appointee of former president Barack Obama.
Corruption runs deep.
The Clinton campaign fought to keep those records out of Durham’s hands, arguing that they are protected under attorney-client privilege.https://t.co/vUvwemF5RX

Here are details on the judge’s decision from the Washington Times:
U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper, who was appointed by former President Obama, said efforts to link Mr. Sussmann to a vast anti-Trump scheme would “essentially amount to a second trial” for conspiracy, a crime that has not been alleged.
“While the special counsel has proffered some evidence of a collective effort to disseminate the purported link between Trump and Alfa Bank to the press and others, the contours of this venture and its participants are not entirely obvious.” Judge Cooper wrote in a 24-page opinion issued over the weekend.
Judge Cooper said that Mr. Sussmann is charged with the specific crime of lying to the FBI and introducing a conspiracy claim would require an “extensive presentation of evidence about that conspiracy” that “is likely to confuse the jury and distract from the issues at hand.”

Judge Cooper delivered a blow to Special Counsel Durham in limiting evidence in the Sussmann trial. The court has denied Durham the ability to show the full extent of coordination with the Clinton campaign. https://t.co/t8BbD4dr5d

Here’s more on the ruling from the New York Post:
A judge has ruled that Special Counsel John Durham’s office must limit the evidence it plans to use in court to try to show a “joint venture” between Michael Sussmann and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Sussmann, a cybersecurity lawyer, has been charged with lying to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker when he handed over data in September 2016 that claimed to show communications between former President Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin-linked Alfa Bank.
Sussmann did not divulge he was working for the Clinton campaign at the time.
Yet he was billing the campaign for his work with tech executive Rodney Joffe to compile the information about Trump and the bank, a purported tie that has since been debunked.
Sussmann was working at the Perkins Coie law firm, which represented the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, at the time.
Durham has continued to uncover more evidence of Clinton’s involvement in the Trump/Russia hoax.
Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign flooded mainstream media outlets with "unverified derogatory information" about President Donald Trump that led to an investigation into the false Russian collusion narrative, Special Counsel John Durham said. https://t.co/gPVYKcOHpl

For every step forward, there is another challenge awaiting though.
