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 campaignâ€™s promotion of â€œthe Trump/Russia collusion narrative.”
A filing in federal court Friday said both Durhamâ€™s team and Sussmannâ€™s lawyers were in agreement about a questionnaire asking potential jurors if â€œyou, 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 intoâ€ either â€œRussian interference with the 2016 electionâ€ or â€œthe federal governmentâ€™s investigation of Donald Trumpâ€™s relationship with Russia.â€
But Sussmannâ€™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 â€œthe Clinton Campaign and/or the Democratic National Committeeâ€™s promotion of the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.â€
Sussmann wasÂ indictedÂ last year in Durham’s criminal inquiry for allegedlyÂ concealingÂ 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 Russiaâ€™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?
