Whitaker: This trial is about 'holding somebody accountable'

MATT WHITAKER: Yeah, this Sussmann trial is so important for two reasons. One, it’s holding somebody accountable for lying to the FBI and upholding the rule of law. But on the other hand, it is also important because it is telling the story of what the Clinton campaign did – spreading disinformation. Really. That was in 2017 that our current national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, was talking about this same fake news, false information that Hillary Clinton had ordered the code red to disseminate to the media. And Sussmann, prior to that, had gone to the FBI and saying, I don’t represent any clients. But he did. He represented the campaign when he delivered this information to the FBI.
