Special Counsel John Durham is asking potential jurors if they have any links to groups that pushed the Russia-Collusion hoax – Democrats aren’t liking that.
NEW: Durham wants to ask potential jurors if they’ve participated in or have links to orgs that’ve looked at or been tied to “the Clinton Campaign and/or DNC’s promotion of the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.” Sussmann doesn’t want jury pool asked that.https://t.co/0GZVJfVjv5

The legal team for indicted Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann doesn’t like special counsel John Durham’s proposal to ask potential jurors in an upcoming trial if they have any links to groups that looked into what he describes as the Hillary Clinton campaign’s promotion of “the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.”
A filing in federal court Friday said both Durham’s team and Sussmann’s lawyers were in agreement about a questionnaire asking potential jurors if “you, any family member, or close personal friend participated or had any connection with any other government agency, group, organization, committee or subcommittee, public or private group or organization, including any media group or organization that has investigated or made inquiry into” either “Russian interference with the 2016 election” or “the federal government’s investigation of Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia.”
But Sussmann’s team said it objected to the Durham prosecution request to ask the jury pool the same question related to any links to groups that have looked at or been tied to “the Clinton Campaign and/or the Democratic National Committee’s promotion of the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.”
Sussmann was indicted last year in Durham’s criminal inquiry for allegedly concealing his clients, including Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, from then-FBI general counsel James Baker in September 2016 when he shared information suggesting a secret backchannel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The bank has consistently denied collusion allegations. Sussmann, for his part, has pleaded not guilty in the case.
Are Democrats trying to stack the jury in their favor?
