Trump ROASTS Clinton Following Bombshell Sussman Trial Testimony
(TruthandLiberty.com) – Late in the 2016 presidential campaign, stories emerged that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump colluded with Russia against Hillary Clinton. The allegations proposed in the fake Steele Dossier led to an investigation by the FBI, resulting in almost $32 million in taxpayer money spent to produce the Mueller Report. It ultimately concluded that neither Trump nor his campaign colluded with Russia. The findings led former Attorney General William Barr to appoint special counsel John Durham to investigate the origins of the hoax.
On September 26, 2021, a grand jury indicted Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI when he said he wasn’t working with any political group. Durham alleges Sussmann was on the Clinton campaign payroll while disseminating information and suggesting covert communications between the Trump Organization and a bank with ties to the Kremlin. Clinton’s campaign manager admitted in sworn testimony that Hillary Clinton approved the dissemination of the false claim. Trump’s reaction was swift and specific in the face of the false accusations made against him that led to his administration fighting off falsehoods instead of fully governing.
Clinton Campaign Manager Admits Hillary Authorized the Fake Narrative
The prosecutors revealed a bombshell testimony in the Sussmann case when they asked Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook if he planned to release the false revelations about Trump and Alfa Bank to the media. Mook stated the campaign’s principal lawyer, Marc Elias, briefed him about the claim and said it came from credible experts on this sort of issue. Still, Mook said the campaign wasn’t confident the information was legitimate.
Mook told prosecutors he wanted to provide the information to a reporter to see if the journalist could substantiate the claims. He said he talked about it with campaign chairman John Podesta, now White House Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, and campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri.
Trump Responds to Mook’s Testimony
On Saturday, May 21, former President Donald Trump responded to the news about the bombshell testimony by telling Fox News it was one of the greatest political scandals in history, saying he’d never completely get his reputation back. Trump said he spent three years of his presidency fighting off Clinton and the crooked people who used the fake information to harass him, trying to incriminate him.
Trump also claimed that then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Attorney General William Barr failed to respond forcefully enough against claims of Russian collusion. The former president noted that they would have done something about the lies if he had real leadership around him.
