Michael Sussmann has been found not guilty…
Critics say that the evidence against him was overwhelming, but the jury did not believe the evidence condemned Sussmann beyond a shadow of a doubt…
Sussmann was charged with lying to the F.B.I., and several damning texts were attributed to Sussmann which investigators claim directly proved his guilt.
It remains to be seen if Sussmann will end up in court again following new findings from the Durham investigation…
Here’s what we currently know:
TURLEY: “I mean, he is facing a jury that has three Clinton donors, an AOC donor, and a woman whose daughter is on the same sports team with Sussmann’s daughter. With the exception of randomly selecting people out of the DNC headquarters, you could not come up with a worse jury” pic.twitter.com/RHqen6AMAc

Corporate media downplayed Sussman trial while its testimony confirmed their own corruption, and that of Clinton and FBI. Now that he's (as expected) been acquitted, tweets aplenty! they were and are active co-conspirators in one of greatest political scandals in our history.

Michael Sussmann has been acquitted.

“Sussmann, who worked for Clinton, acquitted of lying to FBI in 2016”

The left-wing Washington Post explains:
The jury ultimately rejected those claims, apparently swayed by the argument from Sussmann’s lawyer, Sean Berkowitz, who said the prosecution was trying to turn a brief 30-minute meeting more than five years ago into a “giant political conspiracy theory.”
