Sussmann acquitted of charge brought by special counsel Durham


The first courtroom test for special counsel John Durham ended in defeat on Tuesday as a federal jury found a Democratic attorney not guilty of making a false statement to the FBI about allegations computer links between Donald Trump and Russia.

The jury deliberated for about six hours before acquitting Michael Sussmann, 57, of the only felony charge he faced: that he lied when he allegedly denied acting on behalf of a client by alerting the FBI of claims that a secret server linked Trump and a Moscow bank linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
