In an almost perfect bit of obvious irony, a juror who was part of a trial that acquitted a former Hillary Clinton Lawyer has suggested that the crime of which the suspect was accused was simply not that big a deal.
And, what’s more, it’s the exact crime that Trump advisor Michael Flynn has been repeatedly labeled a traitor for in the eyes of the liberal left and their mainstream media cronies.
A juror in the trial of former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann told the media after he was unanimously acquitted Tuesday that she did not think the case should have been prosecuted because lying to the FBI was not a big deal.Advertisement - story continues below
“I don’t think it should have been prosecuted,” she reportedly said, according to Jeff Mordock, White House reporter for the Washington Times. “There are bigger things that affect the nation than a possible lie to the FBI.”
And just how ridiculous was the verdict, (and the nonchalance with which this juror tossed it aside)?
Sussmann was widely considered by legal observers to have been proven guilty, given the testimony of FBI agents and a text message that suggested he claimed to be acting as a concerned citizen rather than a Clinton campaign lawyer when he tipped off the agency about supposed collusion between then-candidate Donald Trump and the Russian government via Alfa Bank — a claim that was later debunked.
However, as former White House national security official Kash Patel warned on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Patriot 125 last week, there could be “jury nullification,” in which the jury simply decided not to convict, regardless of the evidence.Advertisement - story continues below
The juror’s attitude hinted at nullification, and contrasted sharply with the approach taken by a federal judge in the same D.C. jurisdiction when it came to former Trump aide Michael Flynn, who was charged with the same crime. Judge Emmet G. Sullivan would not let the case go, even after new evidence emerged that convinced prosecutors to withdraw the charge.
The hypocrisy of the left truly knowns no bounds.
