‘The swamp always protects its own’: Reaction to Sussmann verdict and our two tiered justice system

(Video: Fox News)

A Washington D.C. jury has acquitted former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI, the latest sign that those who were behind the Russia collusion hoax won’t be held accountable for their crimes and yet another blow to the waning credibility of the justice system.

On Tuesday, in a move that many saw coming, the stacked jury pool which included three Clinton donors as well as one who donated to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez returned the unanimous verdict that prosecutors failed to prove their case against Sussmann, a major blow to special counsel John Durham.

That the swamp would be biased against Durham’s case was evident by the results of the 2016 election when Hillary Clinton absolutely clobbered billionaire outsider Donald J. Trump in the district of elite privilege, winning 90.9 percent to 4.1 percent. In the trial of her henchman, it was always going to be a tough rock to roll to get a conviction that would tie her to the cornerstone of the falsehoods of the great Trump-Russia conspiracy theory.

A triumphant Sussmann crowed after the verdict, “I told the truth to the FBI and the jury clearly recognized that with their unanimous verdict today,” he said. “I’m grateful to the members of the jury for their careful and thoughtful service.”

“Despite being falsely accused, I’m relieved that justice ultimately prevailed in my case,” he added.

A defeated Durham had no comment as he left the courthouse but later issued a statement.

“While we are disappointed in the outcome, we respect the jury’s decision and thank them for their service. I also want to recognize and thank the investigators and the prosecution team for their dedicated efforts in seeking truth and justice in this case,” the Connecticut “bulldog” said.

Joe Concha of Fox News decried the jury’s decision.

“Donald Trump got 5.4% of the vote in Washington D.C. in 2020. Right?” Concha said on Tuesday’s edition of “Outnumbered” on Fox News. “So the fact that this jury was going to be sympathetic and friendly to Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer, is not surprising, especially when that jury had Clinton donors on it.”

“But I’m telling you, our faith in institutions just took another big hit as a result of this because this is a whole bowl of wrong,” he said. “Very frustrating to see, you have a man who peddled a lie to the FBI, lied that he was going there as a concerned citizen and then he turns around and bills the Clinton campaign for that visit to his friend James Baker. What else do you need?”

“But again, this jury was pre-dispositioned to have a not-guilty verdict, and here we are once again, another black eye for the justice system,” Concha said.

More reactions to the jury’s verdict.

Also weighing in after the verdict was Trump who didn’t mince words, summing up the situation as a whole as he sees it.

“Our Legal System is CORRUPT, our judges (and Justices!) are highly partisan, compromised or just plain scared, our Borders are OPEN, our Elections are Rigged, Inflation is RAMPANT, gas prices and food costs are ‘through the roof,’ our Military ‘Leadership’ is Woke, our Country is going to HELL, and Michael Sussmann is not guilty. How’s everything else doing? Enjoy your day!!!” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

Democrats and their fellow travelers took to Twitter to celebrate as champagne corks were popped across the swamp.

While leftists spiked the ball, their shortsighted glee over sticking it to Durham – and by extension, Trump himself – serves as an exclamation point on their disdain for longstanding American institutions, and their deft ability to manipulate the legal system for political means will likely have lasting consequences in terms of how millions of Americans now view it as an illegitimate two-tier system that has been rigged against them.

  1. I wonder just how many Democrats in Washing D.C. have entered into an oath to protect each other and provide cover-ups. I think if we knew all the facts, we would be astounded. Reminds me of the Mafia. Make no mistake–these traitors are united in their plotting to destroy this nation. We better make November count.

  2. I have the same sinking, hopeless feeling I had when O.J. was found innocent. I cannot believe the jury could look at all the evidence and let Sussmann off. I do NOT respect the verdict of this jury. The message is that those in power can do whatever they want and never be held accountable. This is a very sad event for our nation. I only pray there are enough of us to turn things around in the coming elections and replace the irresponsible people who are wreaking havoc on our country’s citizens. I think even many Democrats are waking up as they witness how much damage Biden has already done in such a short time. Unbelievable.

  3. My dad and little brother talked about this for a while last night. What hurt me most about it was that, after all that effort to get him off the hook, there’s still a chance Mr. Sussmann will wind up dying or disappearing soon… And to think none of those celebrating will see anything odd about that…

  4. Michael Sussmann was prosecuted and had a open trial. He was found not guilty by an impartial jury that were chosen by legal procedure. The author of this article may disagree with the outcome, but that is the system of justice in the United States. How is that “yet another blow to the waning credibility of the justice system.” Please explain how this trial is an example of the “Swamp always protects its own.”???

    1. Our justice system has the same credibility as these people who say that they make gobs of money from working on line. Yeah right. If it’s a Dem on trial they skate. Republicans are still in prison for trespassing on Jan 6. No due process. They have been locked up for 2+ years without ever having a trial. That’s guilty until proven innocent. There’s your justice system or lack there of.

    2. “Impartial?????? Do you really believe that?! If they had all the evidence against Trump that was presented at this trial, he would be locked up right now. Every liberal “owned” newspaper and television station would have crucified Trump for the clear and undeniable evidence that was presented.

  5. Apparently at the present time the slim majority of the voters like that we have a two tiered justice system. The long term problem with that is, sooner or later those that like it will also be caught up in the bias. Just think how many times recently the Left has eaten its own. A good example is Bernie Sanders. How many times is he going to run for the White House, only to have the Democrats pull the rug from under him? Yet, like the black community in Chicago, they still are damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead, for the Democrats.

  6. It’s too bad this site didn’t allow for a reply to stm’s comments on everything that is happening in our country now. He should receive a thousand up-votes for that commentary.
    And everyone should heed Jesse Kelly’s warning about our deteriorating justice system. I fear that someday, somehow some people will get fed up with this “justice system “ and take the law into their own hands because the courts sure aren’t willing to do it.

  7. Can’t the BPR moderators do something about the barrage of Spam in these comments sections.

    SOS day after day.

  8. If you want to see where the “justice” system in this country is headed, just look at any case tried in D.C.

    Two-tiered justice is no justice at all.

    The judiciary in the US now serves as the main tool for eliminating the middle class.

  9. That any trial would take place in DC is an obscenity, a gross miscarriage of justice! Likely the jury was selected from only those wearing a Biden, Hillary or Obama T-shirt.
    The jury foreman stating that “there are more important things to worry about” is very telling in so many ways, as it not only reflects the attitude of the jury, it also clearly demonstrates that “Justice” is of no concern, only the Party line matters!

    1. The only time justice is of concern is when a conservative is on trial. Automatic guilty verdict. I wonder if the Sussman trial would have had the same outcome had the trial been held in let’s say West Virginia.

      1. We can be sure that MANY other states would have had no difficulty deciding on a “guilty” verdict.

    2. I completely agree that this trial should have been held in another state because of the favoritism for Democrats in Washington D.C. This jury was “stacked” from the very beginning.

  10. We all know that Hillary, in a conspiracy with the Media and big Tech, tried for 4 years and two impeachments to take down a duly elected President. But, for them, there are no consequences. We know that the Media and big Tech conspired to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story and steal the election. We know that dozens of Governors unconstitutionally changed their voting laws without the required approval of their legislators. And we all know that massive uncontrolled absentee balloting, ballot harvesting and unsupervised “drop boxes” caused of fraudulent 2020 election. (see “2000 Mules” for the definitive proof.)

    The Democrats have destroyed the “rule of law” in this country. They use nebulous, undefinable terms like “social justice”, “environmental justice” and the always popular; “systemic racism”. Meanwhile REAL laws that they don’t like are ignored constantly.
    It is against Federal law to protest outside Federal justice’s home “with the intent of influencing any Judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty”. Similarly, Biden’s open border violates multiple Federal laws daily, So who are the real Insurrectionists? The real Seditionists? This administration has destroyed the rule of law in this country and weaponized all the three letter agencies (the IRS, the CIA, the FBI, the EPA, the DOJ and even the DOD) against anyone who disagrees with his radical Socialist and ant-white, anti-family and anti-Christian agenda. Exactly how is Homeland Security’s “Board of Disinformation” not a violation of the First Amendment? The mainstream media and all the big Tech “censors” support this insanity. The fact that we still have dozens of Americans locked up unconstitutionally in a D.C. gulag, on trumped up trespassing charges for over a year and a half with no due process or bail should engage every American. Yet real criminals are released every day with “no bail” back onto our city streets. The border is wide open to terrorists, criminals, cartels and limitless Chinese made Fentanyl that literally kills a hundred thousand Americans every year.  
    There is no more “equal justice under the law” in America and it is destroying our country.

  11. Hillary could have called Sussman and instructed him how to answer the questions while he was on the stand and he still wouldnt have been convicted. Especially not in the N.E. U.S. You know, the shithole states.
