(Hillary Clinton) Lawyer (Michael Sussman) pleads not guilty in Trump-Russia investigation probe
KSLA ^ | 9/17/21 | Eric Tucker, Colleen Long

WASHINGTON (AP) - A prominent cybersecurity lawyer on Friday pleaded not guilty to making a false statement to the FBI in a charge stemming from a probe of the U.S. government’s investigation into Russian election interference.

Michael Sussman appeared Friday in D.C. federal court before Magistrate Judge Zia Faruqui. He is just the second person to be prosecuted by special counsel John Durham in two-and-a-half years of work.

The indictment accuses Sussmann of lying to the FBI when he was questioned about a September 2016 conversation he had with the FBI’s general counsel in which he relayed concerns from cybersecurity researchers about potentially suspicious contacts between Russia-based Alfa Bank and a Trump Organization server.

The FBI looked into the matter but found no connections. Sussmann is a former federal prosecutor who specializes in cybersecurity. He resigned this week from the firm Perkins Coie.

Sussmann’s lawyers, Sean Berkowitz and Michael Bosworth, said their client is a highly respected national security lawyer and they were confident he would prevail at trial and “vindicate his good name.”

No case brought by Durham so far undoes the core finding of an earlier investigation by Robert Mueller that Russia had interfered in sweeping fashion on behalf of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and that the Trump campaign welcomed that aid.

The Alfa Bank matter was not a pivotal element of the Russia probe and was not even mentioned in Mueller’s 448-page report in 2019. Still, the indictment may give fodder to Russia investigation critics who regard it as politically tainted and engineered by Democrats.

in this case is the lawyer for Nellie Ohr?

Ever wonder how BLACKROBE CRIMINALS and US TRAITORS
fix cases?

She paid a foreign power to produce false evidence in a criminal investigation, for her own personal political gain.

So is he the scapegoat or will he be suicided or possibly both?

If he turns on the Clintoons, he surely will. He will not open his mouth about anything. He wants to stay alive. 😀
