Miranda Devine, a Fox News contributor, said Hillary Clinton is at the heart of the ongoing trial of Michael Sussmann as a result of John Durham’s investigation. Devine explained on “Fox & Friends” that the ramifications of Clinton’s attempt to mar Trump’s reputation are momentous.
Here is what Devine said: “Susmann is [on trial for] for misleading, lying to the FBI. But really, at the heart of this is Hillary Clinton. She sanctioned, she approved this attempt to dirty up Donald Trump and paint him as an agent of the Kremlin. The ramifications of that dirty trick went on, crippled the Trump presidency, did great damage to this country, was the source of a lot of the rancor and division that we see now,” per report.
“And God forbid,” Devine continued. “Also was part of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and the damage that that’s done to everyone in the world. So this is not a trivial issue. It may seem that the charge is small, but actually the ramifications and the report that will come from John Durham are momentous. And we should all pay very close attention to it.”
In the meantime, at least four major networks are accused of ignoring the Hillary Clinton linked trial.
Friday’s bombshell testimony was nearly totally ignored by MSNBC, ABC News, NBC News and CBS News, in which former Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified Clinton approved the dissemination of materials to the media alleging a secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank, despite campaign officials not being “totally confident” in the legitimacy of the data.
Radio host Jason Rantz said: “Left-wing media outlets shout from the rooftops that disinformation matters and is a threat to democracy. Unless, of course, it makes Democrats or the press look bad.”
The trial of ex-Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who has been charged with making a false statement to the FBI, has been largely avoided by the mainstream media. In September 2016, Sussmann told former FBI General Counsel James Baker that he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and attended a meeting where he presented data and white papers allegedly demonstrating a backchannel between the Trump Organization and the Kremlin-tied Alfa Bank, per report.
Since the trial began on May 15, MSNBC, ABC News, NBC News and CBS News have almost entirely ignored it and continued the blackout after Friday’s stunning revelation.
CBSN, the CBS News streaming service covered the trial in a news package and delved into the revelations from Mook.
