Durham jury convicts FBI


If Special Counsel John Durham didn’t get the verdict he wanted in the Michael Sussmann case, it’s because he had the victim convicted better than the culprit, the victim being the FBI, the agency to which the Democratic lawyer allegedly lied that he was not acting for the Clinton campaign while peddling mud on Donald Trump in the run-up to the 2016 election.

In the indictment filed eight months ago, Mr Durham went out of his way to show why the FBI would not have been fooled by Mr Sussmann, who was acquitted by a jury on Tuesday. The lawsuit itself piled on evidence that the FBI leadership was both embarrassed to be seen carrying water for the Clinton campaign and willing to carry it. In the end, Mr. Sussmann’s alleged lie seemed more intended to compel the agency than to deceive it.
