Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley said Friday prosecutors in the Michael Sussmann trial are facing a "nightmare" with a jury pool made up of several Clinton donors. The constitutional law professor explained(snip) the challenges facing Special Counsel John Durham in the case. JONATHAN TURLEY: Durham faces a lot of challenges in this trial. The judge in the trial has hit the prosecution with limiting orders. This jury pool is a nightmare for the prosecutors. There are three Clinton donors on the jury. In the last 24 hours, the judge turned down a motion to dismiss a juror whose daughter is actually playing on the same team with the daughter


As Turley says, a jury of his peers does not mean more Clinton people...

Sounds to me as if there is a good case for appeal, if the case is dismissed.

The judge should have removed them from the pool during voir dire instead of making Durham use up his peremptory challenges. The juror even said that he would “strive for impartiality as best I can.” Just ridiculous

Oh come on it’s DC….you know the place that placed Manafort in solitary confinement, allowed Trump to be persecuted for 4 years without reason, ridiculed Stone & tried to block Flynn pardon!! DC is probably the most corrupt one sided government in the world.

IS there ANYTHING of importance where “the Fix” is not in somehow today? How much longer will the American people stand for this? Then again, how many “Americans” still appreciate freedom and integrity? How many will stand up to corrupt leadership? For the Constitution? “If you don’t stand for SOMETHING you’ll fall for ANYTHING, comrade.” Soon the WHO will be asking to see “your papers” under Biden’s proposed “treaty” with these China-lovers. Will we say “Baaa” or NAH”?

There will be no justice for people tried in the DC area with corrupt judges, democrats on the jury and corrupt prosecutors (in some cases). If there is to be justice, it must come from the people.

Mr. Turley, it’s all part of the plan. This is a show trial. Durham is playing the part of the earnest prosecutor and that is all it is. I believe if he was serious he would have demanded a change in venue because there is more than sufficient reason for it. This is going to go down exactly like it was planned. Sussman will be acquitted or get his wrist slapped and that decision will shut down any further investigation. They never intended that this investigation would lead any further than it has. The Deep State runs Washington and what it wants is what gets done.

The trial of former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann crossed a critical threshold Friday when a key witness uttered the name “Hillary Clinton” in conjunction with a plan to spread the false Alfa Bank Russian collusion claim before the 2016 presidential election. For Democrats and many in the media, Hillary Clinton has long held a Voldemort-like status as “She who must not be named” in scandals. Yet, there was her former campaign manager, Robby Mook, telling a jury that Clinton personally approved a plan to spread the claim of covert communications between the Trump organization and the Russian bank. It was one of the most successful disinformation campaigns in American politics,

People are starting to come to grips with the importance of Hillary campaign manager Robbie Mook’s fingering of Hillary—that she was the one who authorized the Alfa Bank Hoax. There’s a lot to be said, and some people are already saying it. One is Jonathan Turley, and another is Devin Nunes. Nunes gave a very lucid interview to Fox News that happens to work very well with Turley’s equally lucid article at The Hill.If you read Turley first, then listen to Nunes’ explanation of the significance of it all, you’ll get a very good overview of why this revelation will end up being very important—whether or not Sussmann is convicted.

The Democrats are increasingly desperate as the return of Donald Trump becomes more likely each week.They are muddling the sequence of events that got us to the present impasse: Trump ran against the corrupt back-scratching, log-rolling society of the OBushintons—the Clinton pay-to-play schemes, the Biden sales of influence and access, the semi-disguised socialist racism elitism of the Obamas, and the flabby sameness and ineffectuality of the Bush–McCain–Romney–McConnell–Ryan Republicans. Trump sensed the people were dissatisfied with the bipartisan Swamp, and he ran as strenuously against the Bushes and McCain and Romney in 2016 as he did against the Clintons and Obamas.

The criminal trial of Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann began this week with a telling warning from prosecutors to the D.C. jury: “Whatever your political views might be, they cannot be brought to your decisions.” The opening statement by Deborah Brittain Shaw reflected the curious profile of the Sussmann case. Prosecutors ordinarily have a massive advantage with juries despite the presumption of innocence. When pleas are counted, federal prosecutors can report as high as 95 percent conviction rates. However, with Sussmann, prosecutors clearly have concerns over whether they, rather than the defendant, will get a fair trial.

Hillary Clinton approved an effort to leak allegations that Donald Trump was colluding with Russia via Alfa Bank, according to her 2016 presidential campaign manager, Robby Mook, who testified Friday in federal court in Washington, DC. The Alfa Bank allegations were later disproven, as was the broader “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory that they supported. (snip) As the New York Post notes, Mook also discussed the Alfa Bank allegations with Clinton aide Jake Sullivan. Sullivan played a key role in misleading reporters and Congress about “Russia collusion,” telling the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had colluded with Russia. Sullivan now has Flynn’s former position.

The Biden administration privately acknowledged late last month that a mathematical error is delaying the federal government’s offshore oil and gas program. In an April 29 letter to industry leaders obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that a subagency “discovered a miscalculation” that has caused a massive backlog in permitting. Richard Spinrad acknowledged in his letter that the National Marine Fisheries Service—the subagency tasked with analyzing the impact of offshore drilling projects on wildlife—has used faulty computer modeling on such impacts. As a result, Spinrad wrote, the subagency overestimated wildlife effects, delaying permitting on existing leases.
