In the Durham Case, a Federal Judge Will Not Allow Hillary Clinton’s Tweets to be Used as Evidence

A federal judge has ruled that tweets by Hillary Clinton accusing former President Donald Trump of collaborating with Russia during the 2016 presidential election cannot be used as evidence in court.

According to The Washington Examiner, Judge Christopher Cooper refused Special Counsel John Durham’s request to use them as evidence in Clinton’s former campaign attorney Michael Sussmann’s upcoming trial for lying to the FBI.

‘Presented as Truth’

Durham argued the tweets should be permitted as evidence because Clinton presented them as “truth” and because they “show the existence of the defendant’s attorney-client relationship with the Clinton Campaign, which is directly relevant to the false statement charge.”

The trial for Clinton associate Michael Sussmann is set to begin in May.
