Clinton Lawyers Allowed to Hide Some Emails Ahead of Sussmann Trial

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Hillary Clinton lawyer and leftist activist Marc Elias has intentionally hidden certain documents relevant to the upcoming trial for Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, the Federalist reported.

Potentially vital Clinton emails will be withheld from the jury as special counsel John Durham attempts to close in on Clinton and her cronies who propagated the Russia hoax.

Rodney Joffe, a tech mogul and Clinton ally, has been allowed to assume attorney-client privilege, being granted immunity in exchange for testimony against Sussmann, decided the federal judge who is presiding over the case.

The so-called privileged information was to push the Russia hoax on the mainstream media and the larger public. In other words, the now-concealed information that will not be made available to prosecutors was meant to be public all along.

Of the 38 emails in question, the court held that Clinton “had no valid basis to withhold 22.”

The emails were allegedly irrelevant to the case

Those emails, the court concluded, did not concern legal advice, but rather campaign strategy “with the press as part of an affirmative media relations effort by the Clinton Campaign.”

“That effort included pitching certain stories, providing information on background, and answering reporters’ questions,” the court added.

According to the Federalists’ Margot Cleveland, it was a major victory for Sussman when Durham’s attempts to present the withheld emails of Joffe, the Clinton campaign, and the Democratic National Committee were rejected.

They would apparently prove the connection between the various parties listed above.

The decision is bizarre considering that last week that same U.S. district judge Christopher Cooper ordered a key witness to testify and agreed to review memos that were submitted as evidence that the defense was attempting to cover up.

However, Cooper foreshadowed this decision, noting that he does not believe the memos between the Clinton campaign, Sussmann’s law firm and Fusion GPS should not be central to the case itself.

Cooper formally ordered the witness to “give testimony or provide other information which she refuses to give or to provide on the basis of her privilege against self-incrimination as to all matters about which she might be interrogated at trial and any proceedings ancillary thereto.”
