Hillary Clinton's former campaign manager Robby Mook told a court on Friday that she signed off on sharing debunked allegations linking Donald Trump and the Kremlin-backed Alfa Bank with the media in the run-up to the 2016 election.
This and more came out in trial today.

Jim Baker also testified that he is 100% sure that Sussman told him he was NOT representing any client when he brought the Alfa Bank info to the FBI.

The Clinton revelation isn't important for Sussman as he's only charged with lying to the FBI but Mook dropped direct the link to Hilary right in her lap.

Deplorable.
Her argument, of course, will be that she had no idea any of the information was contrived and proving that will be a tough hill to climb, probably. That being said, her own guy just tied her to the scheme and that ain't a good look for her or for any of the media that backed her and bashed Trump over this stuff. Will the public care? Some will, some won't and the rest will just go along with whatever their peers say.

I agree... Ms. "wipe it, you mean like with a cloth?" will just play stupid. Of course she knew.

Calling it debunked dose not make it so…

Ms. Hillary is one of the untouchables in American society.

The mainstream media will fiercely protect and excuse her, as they do for so many groups in this nation.

So the lady (as well as those mansion-buying ladies of BLM) are NOT shaking in their boots.

They are probably laughing.

Unfortunately, outside of some sacrificial low-level miscreants I suspect having certain people's noses rubbed in their shit that they denied was theirs may be all we're going to get out of Durham's effort but at least there's that.

Optics don't mean squat when you don't have a chance in hell of ever being nominated again for any public office (not even for dog catcher). But even if she did run the Clintons are masters at plausible deniability. They took the same course the Bidens did.

The Clinton campaign knew that the idiot left would fall for their Russia Russia Russia bullshit (and many of the morons on the left are STILL just blindly regurgitating the same shit over and over and over) and used Russia as their diversion from the content of the Clinton emails as well as in their coordinated attack with the FBI on a political opponent.

Not all that surprising. But they’re all throwing Sussman under the bus regarding the FBI angle, for obvious reasons. Where things will get interesting is if/when we find out what the FBI really thought about all their juicy tips being simultaneously reported in the media. I’ve said all along you can’t convince there wasn’t at least one person at the FBI who spoke up and said “guys isn’t it weird how all this stuff is getting to us and the media at the same time?””

Did Mook connect the Clinton Campaign to Sussmann taking it to the FBI or was the testimony that it should be put out into the press?

He did not. No shock there. We’re apparently to believe that the different entities taking this info to the FBI were doing so on their own accord. I still say that raises questions about the FBI side of things.

Who cares? Why are you still hung up on alleged dirty tricks from a *losing* political campaign for an election that happened 6 years ago?

Because it's current news and this news about crooked Hillary came out today while Robby Mook, Clinton's campaign manager testified during the Michael Sussmann trial.

On Halloween 2016, Clinton tweeted, “Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.”

She lied, attempting to plant a false narrative in order to swing the election in her direction.

If you came to America for the first time and had only Republicans' hatred for Hillary Clinton to work with, you would be completely forgiven for assuming that she won the 2016 election.
