Trial Prosecutors Take Aim at Hillary Clinton, the FBI, and the News Media

From a Washington Post story by Devlin Barrett headlined “Sussmann prosecutors also take aim at Clinton, FBI, and the news media”:

The trial of well-connected lawyer Michael Sussmann centers on whether he lied to the FBI while sharing potentially damaging allegations about Donald Trump at a key moment in the 2016 presidential campaign.

But the first week of testimony showed the prosecution’s hopes for a conviction rest largely on a much broader set of assertions: that the FBI, the Hillary Clinton campaign and the press collided in ultimately harmful ways, leading to the public airing of unsubstantiated allegations shortly before Election Day.
