FBI agents tasked with analyzing claims about Donald Trump and Russia took less than a day to figure out that the data didn’t support the allegations, one of the agents testified in federal court on May 17.
Agent Scott Hellman was part of the team that examined white papers and data on thumb drives handed in 2016 to FBI lawyer James Baker by Michael Sussmann, an attorney who was representing the campaign of Hillary Clinton—Trump’s rival for the presidency.
On the first day of Sussmann’s trial for allegedly lying to the FBI when he said he wasn’t bringing the information on behalf of a client, Hellman told the court that he and another agent took less than a day to ascertain that the information didn’t support the allegations that Trump’s business and Russia’s Alfa Bank had a secret connection.
“I think the person who drafted [the main white paper] was suffering from a mental disability,” Hellman said.
So, they were nearly certain it was all a lie on day one. Yet the President of The United States and the entire country were subject to years of legal abuse and the almost certain change of an election result.
The criminals at the top of this should be fined into oblivion and spend the rest of their lives in prison.
I won’t be holding my breath.
