Clinton Lawyer Indicted for lying to FBI about 2016 Trump-Russia connection

A grand jury has indicted a high-profile cybersecurity lawyer in connection with special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe, on charges that he lied to investigators during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The indictment, returned by a Washington, D.C., grand jury on Thursday, charges attorney Michael Sussmann, of Perkins Coie, a law firm tied to the Democratic party, with making a false statement during a meeting with officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation shortly before the 2016 election.

Mr. Sussmann didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. He could make his first court appearance as soon as Friday.
