Washington—A federal jury on Tuesday found former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann not guilty of lying to the FBI — finding special counsel John Durham did not prove his case beyond a reasonable doubt. The verdict by a jury in heavily Democratic-leaning DC, came midway through the second day of deliberations following a two-week trial on a single count of making false statements to a federal agent. Durham’s prosecution team unsuccessfully sought to prove that Sussmann deliberately lied to then-FBI general counsel James Baker by claiming not to be acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign and an internet executive when the two met in 2016.

Maybe the problem was that they failed to credit FBI as an active participant in the subversion, if not the leader. After all, people like to brag about being in The Resistance. FTA: "The plan, prosecutor Deborah Brittain Shaw said in her opening statement, was for internet researchers to find disparaging information about Trump and Russia, leak the findings to the press and then for Sussmann to lie to the FBI to spark an investigation into the since-discredited information—all in a bid to create an “October surprise” on behalf of the Clinton campaign. “We are here because the FBI is our institution that shouldn’t be used as a political tool for anyone—not Republicans, not Democrats, not anyone,” Shaw said."

People need to understand how deep and entangling the tentacles of the Deep State/Deep Swamp are. Former higher-ups in the FBI, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, are unadulterated swine excrements. It is, and will always be, going after DJT to destroy the man. The Swamp Creatures know that the word "accountability" is far-fetched and illusive. As stated before, there is no need to wait until the red wave arrives in November, 2022.

FTA: “Opposition research is not illegal,” Berkowitz said. “If it were, the jails of Washington, DC, would be teeming over.” Yeah, that's correct. But getting the FBI and an Alpha-Bits box full of three and four letter government intelligence agencies should be illegal. Crooked Hillary and her henchmen (Sussman included) used their government ties to get the government to "investigate" their opponent. Heck, even Nixon didn't do that.

The trial was held at a DC court, presided by an Obie-appointed judge, and several Billary donors were seated on the jury. So Durham, what alternative outcome were you expecting? A two-year investigation and nothing. Absolutely nothing. No surprise that Sussmann skated. Now watch the wicked witch come out of the woodwork and start yapping it up about the J6 investigation on Trump.

The O. J. Simpson jury was just plain racially stupid. The Sussman jury was just plain Democrat pro-corruption. i've said many times that high ranking Democrats and their parasites are immune to the laws the rest of us must obey. A change of venue would have made a difference, I know that, you know that, Durham knows that, but asking for a change of venue by a Democrat judge would have been a non-starter and a crucifixion of Durham by the MSM.

#1, is correct. We cannot survive a corrupt judicial system. Clearly, the government intends to jail any opposition to the present regime regardless of their innocence. In that same vein, they intend to absolve any democrat operative of any wrongdoing even if they are guilty. We cannot survive this kind of corruption. We will either submit or fight, and I can’t see Americans willing to give up their country to this wretched administration’s tyranny.

You know, I'm starting to like the idea of "court packing." Next time a Republican wins the White House, maybe we should do a "packing" of the DC circuit court. Maybe 50 or 90 or so Republican-leaning judges would do the trick. And bus in jurors from all over the country.

At the current pace of growth, 14.9% of residents will be immigrants as of sometime next year, topping the record set around the turn of the 20th century. That’s half a decade earlier than the Census Bureau’s last calculation,

George Will’s recent column reviewing the first 500 days of the Biden presidency includes praise for the president’s “deft diplomacy” and “stunning achievement” in the administration’s response to Ukraine. According to Will, Biden’s diplomacy is substantially responsible for nudging Germany to play a larger geopolitical role and persuading Finland to join NATO, thus extending the alliance’s reach to more than 800 miles of Russia’s border. Biden, he writes, has revised the concept of the West, but Will writes that Biden’s achievement will not earn him political dividends because “what Americans usually want in foreign policy is as little as possible.”

Last year, the United Methodist Church accepted Isaac Simmons, who regularly preaches dressed as a drag queen under the name Ms. Penny Cost, as a candidate for ordination. Since that time, Simmons, who serves as an associate pastor at Hope United Methodist Church in Bloomington, Illinois, has challenged basic theological concepts, projecting a worldview where divinity rests not in God but in queerness. In a church preparing to split over LGBTQ issues, the drag queen pastor, who embraces queer theology while barely attempting to plaster on the basic tenets of Christian theology, has become a lightning rod.

Yellowstone National Park, Wyo. — A bison gored a 25-year-old woman in Yellowstone National Park. The bison was walking near a boardwalk at Black Sand Basin, just north of Old Faithful, when the woman approached it on Monday, according to a park statement. She got within 10 feet before the animal gored her and tossed her 10 feet in the air. The woman, from Grove City, Ohio, sustained a puncture wound and other injuries. Park emergency medical providers responded and transported her via ambulance to a hospital in Idaho. Park officials say it's the first reported bison goring this year.

After just six hours of deliberation, a jury rejected Durham's claim that Sussmann lied to federal agents when sending them dirt on Trump's alleged links to Moscow.
