‘There was a crime’ Prosecutor Deborah Shaw – ‘Whether We Hate Donald Trump or Like Him’ ‘Some Things Above Politics’ – Clinton Attorney Trial, Russia ‘October Surprise;’ plus MHMarkets Update


“Michael A. Sussmann is a former federal prosecutor and a former partner at the law firm Perkins Coie, who focused on privacy and cybersecurity law,” says left-leaning Wikipedia. “Sussmann represented the Democratic National Committee (DNC)… In September 2021, Sussmann was indicted for lying to the FBI by a grand jury empaneled by special counsel John Durham‘s investigation into the origins of the FBI Russia probe into possible links between Russian officials and associates of presidential candidate Donald Trump. Sussmann pleaded not guilty to the charge.[1] CNN said on 5.18.2022 that “Prosecutors say Clinton campaign lawyer [Sussmann] tried ‘to manipulate the FBI.” That backdrop will be known by millions of Trump supporters but may be ‘news’ to millions of Democratic loyalists who don’t check news from sources that may routinely challenge their party’s narrative. With that background the WND NewsCenter report to MHProNews is followed by additional related information, analysis, and then our Daily Business News manufactured housing industry connected equities market updates.

Issues such as this case matter to business because the control of Washington D.C.’s political and legal apparatus clearly impacts the economy and hundreds of millions in a variety of ways. As manufactured housing industry attorney Kurt Kelley previously told MHProNews, the proper operation of the legal system is a cornerstone “for a prosperous Republic.” Exhibit A is the significant swing in the economy, inflation, interest rates, foreign and domestic policy between the Trump Administration and the so-called Biden White House.

We strive to approach each person or organization with the principle of wheat and chaff in mind. The above is pure wheat from Kurt Kelley. Of course, that was while he was working directly with MHProNews…

Prosecutors: Hillary lawyer planned Russia hoax as ‘October surprise’

High-profile Clinton operatives preparing to testify in trial this week

By Art Moore
Published May 18, 2022 at 7:59pm

WNDnewscenterLogoQuoteOn the eve of the 2016 presidential election, former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann sought to create an “October surprise” by feeding the FBI a bogus story claiming Donald Trump was secretly communicating with the Kremlin through a Russian bank, prosecutors charged in opening statements in Sussman’s trial in federal court.

Sussman – who was indicted in special counsel John Durham’s probe of the Obama investigation of now-debunked Trump-Russia collusion – is charged with falsely claiming he was operating merely as a private citizen rather than a campaign operative when he gave the information to the FBI.

CBS News reported that among the high-profile witnesses scheduled to testify this week in federal court in Washington, D.C., are former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook and former Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias.

It was Elias who organized the fraudulent Steele “dossier” that along with the Russian Alfa Bank lie helped ignite the Obama administration’s Trump-Russia probe.

In court on Tuesday, prosecutors backed the “October surprise” claim by focusing on a Sept. 19, 2016, meeting between Sussmann and then-FBI general counsel James Baker.

Sussmann gave Baker thumb drives and memos purporting to link Trump to the Russian bank.

“There was a crime in all of this: the defendant’s lie to the FBI general counsel,” said prosecutor Deborah Shaw. “Whether we hate Donald Trump or like him, we have to agree that some things have to be above politics. One of those things is our law enforcement agencies. The other is the truth.”

Sussmann’s defense shot back, CBS reported.

“You think Mr. Sussmann would throw his career away, his life away, to tell a lie to that guy,” they asked the jury, referring to Baker.

Sussmann’s defense insisted he contacted Baker to help the FBI prepare for a New York Times story on the data.

“If Michael Sussmann didn’t care about the FBI, we wouldn’t be here,” defense attorney Michael Bosworth told the jury.

He contended the charge against Sussmann is “nonsensical.”

However, one of Durham’s first witnesses, FBI special agent Scott Hellman, argued Tuesday that knowing where the data comes from “gives me context.”

“Do I think it’s real and do I trust it?”

Hellman was assigned with investigating potential ties between Trump and Alfa Bank. He said it would have mattered if he had known of the political connections the source had to the data.

“We were told very little about the information if anything at all,” he said. ##

“Survey 85 Percent of Americans Concerned About Inflation, Credit Card Interest Up by 3.3” said a headline on Breitbart. ‘Core retail’ inflation was announced on 4.12.2022 as 8.5 percent. Some commentators are saying that the actual rate of inflation in the U.S. is more like 15 to 20 percent. As the value of the dollar erodes, that impact should be considered when looking at stock market performance.
