Not unexpectedly, the trial of Michael Sussman ended with a “not guilty” vote by the jury. With an Obama appointed judge and a tainted jury pool, Durham was fighting against the odds in this case. Nevertheless, the trial exposed some ugly truths about Hillary Clinton and her political operatives. The following is a quote from a Wall Street Journal editorial:
In short, the Clinton campaign created the Trump-Alfa allegation, fed it to a credulous press that failed to confirm the allegations but ran with them anyway, then promoted the story as if it was legitimate news. The campaign also delivered the claims to the FBI, giving journalists another excuse to portray the accusations as serious and perhaps true.
Most of the press will ignore this news, but the Russia-Trump narrative that Mrs. Clinton sanctioned did enormous harm to the country. It disgraced the FBI, humiliated the press, and sent the country on a three-year investigation to nowhere. Vladimir Putin never came close to doing as much disinformation damage.
If true justice is served, Hillary will be brought to trial for her crimes.
Most observers seem confident that this will never happen. Equal justice for America’s high and mighty, especially Democrats, remains a chimera.
All men may be created equal, but some appear more equal than others.
