Sussman not guilty verdict reveals unequal justice in the swamp

May 31, 2022, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the jury’s not guilty verdict of former DNC, Clinton campaign and Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussman:

“Michael Sussman clearly lied to the General Counsel of the FBI when he claimed that he was not acting on behalf of his client — the Hillary Clinton Campaign — in arranging an appointment for him to deliver phony Clinton campaign opposition research to the FBI that falsely alleged that former President Donald Trump was a Russian agent.

“Unfortunately, today’s Washington, D.C.-based federal jury’s verdict serves more as an indictment of the jury itself and the idea that Republicans and Democrats can expect to receive equal treatment in the swamp. According to Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley, the jury included three Clinton donors, an AOC donor and a person whose daughter played on a sports team with Sussman’s kid, and somehow, these jurors were deemed ‘neutral.’

“The only plausible way to end the dominance of left-wing juries in D.C. and Alexandria, Va. is to create a vehicle to move all federal election and politically charged cases outside of the confines of the Washington, D.C. metro area. In the meantime, I don’t know if this finishes any hope of getting to the bottom of the Clinton campaign, DNC, Justice Department combined successful effort in perpetuating the Russian Collusion hoax, what I do know is that those who subverted our law enforcement and intelligence agencies to further their political ends in cahoots with the Clinton team are breathing much easier today than they were yesterday.”
