That is the reality of the situation. Is anyone, ANYONE, surprised Sussmann got off? The rot goes all the way to the bone.

"Alas, the D.C. jury on Tuesday acquitted Sussmann. Maybe the jurors thought the whole thing was just a big misunderstanding.

But for many court observers, Sussmann’s acquittal came as no surprise. After all, Washingtonians gave Clinton 92.8% of their vote in 2016, with Trump receiving a mere 4.1%. Now the government wants to send a lawyer to prison who was trying to get Clinton elected? Not a chance.

Doesn’t the jury selection process weed out jurors who would be biased in favor of either the government or Sussmann? Not so much.

Some of the 12 jurors and four alternates impaneled by District Court Judge Christopher Cooper had some shaky responses during jury selection. One juror said that he had donated money to Clinton and could promise only to “strive for impartiality as best I can.”

Durham’s legal team asked Cooper (an appointee of President Barack Obama in 2014) to strike the Clinton donor, but he overruled them. “I’ll try to be fair, but no promises!” appears to be good enough for D.C. courts.

Another paragon of impartiality on the jury was a woman who admitted to being a donor to Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. No worries, though. When this juror was informed that neither Clinton nor Trump was on trial, she gave her word that she could be impartial.

Writing for The Hill, law professor and commentator Jonathan Turley said of the remainder of the Sussmann jury: “Other jurors include a woman who said she thought she was a Clinton donor but could not remember; a juror whose husband worked for the Clinton 2008 campaign; and a juror who believes the legal system is racist and police departments should be defunded.”

So, Sussmann truly was judged by a jury of his peers—Democrats and Clinton donors."

Agreed. I think that would happen, regardless of party affiliation, because of the money. "Justice" is too often inverted from net worth.

He is in a tight spot after the Judge ruled against Gascon last week...He will most likely get sued and lose if he doesn't release the info and it will be political suicide for him if he does.

Yes I don’t know that the “ongoing investigation “ excuse is going to hold water when it comes to a mug shot. Video evidence maybe. I’m no expert on law though

Yep. One doesn't want to confuse our legal system with a justice system.

And, without ever appearing in person in the courtroom, Pelosi gets the expected pass...

On a positive note, the driver Mr. Pelosi hit now claims their neck hurts, so I'm sure a large lawsuit will follow. And I hope they get millions $$$

That famous Two Tied Justice system.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.
