Earlier on Thursday, special counsel John Durham told the Justice Department that he will be seeking an indictment against the Clinton-connected lawyer for the charge of making a false statement to the F.B.I., as the New York Times reported. “Any indictment of the lawyer – Michael Sussmann, a former federal prosecutor and now a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm, and who represented the Democratic National Committee on issues related to Russia’s 2016 hacking of its servers – is likely to attract significant political attention,” the Times noted. “Donald J. Trump and his supporters have long accused Democrats and Perkins Coie – whose political law group, a division separate from Mr. Sussmann’s, represented the party and the Hillary Clinton campaign – of seeking to stoke unfair suspicions about Mr. Trump’s purported ties to Russia,” the Times dishonestly reported. Sussmann is a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm that represented the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The law firm is responsible for hiring Fusion GPS, which led the effort to compile anti-Trump opposition research in the Steele dossier. The Steele dossier is a discredited piece of uncorroborated and salacious opposition research that was nonetheless used to file illegal FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
