Special Prosecutor John Durham wants to ask potential jurors if they have any links to Hillary Clinton’s promotion of the Russian collusion hoax.
Recall, Hillary Clinton hatched the Trump-Russia plot in 2016 to distract from her emails transmitted over a private server while she was the head of the Department of State.
John Durham wants to know about any links to Hillary Clinton’s promotion of the Russian collusion canard in a questionnaire to potential jurors.
Attorneys for Clinton’s campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann however are objecting to the question.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The legal team for indicted Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann doesn’t like special counsel John Durham’s proposal to ask potential jurors in an upcoming trial if they have any links to groups that looked into what he describes as the Hillary Clinton campaign’s promotion of “the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.”
A filing in federal court Friday said both Durham’s team and Sussmann’s lawyers were in agreement about a questionnaire asking potential jurors if “you, any family member, or close personal friend participated or had any connection with any other government agency, group, organization, committee or subcommittee, public or private group or organization, including any media group or organization that has investigated or made inquiry into” either “Russian interference with the 2016 election” or “the federal government’s investigation of Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia.”
But Sussmann’s team said it objected to the Durham prosecution request to ask the jury pool the same question related to any links to groups that have looked at or been tied to “the Clinton Campaign and/or the Democratic National Committee’s promotion of the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.”
Earlier this week President Trump filed a federal RICO lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, the DNC and several Democrats over the Russia collusion canard.
“In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot — one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy,” Trump’s lawyers argued. “Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty.”
