A United States court has heard that a lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to manipulate the agency in order to win the election.
Arguments in the trial of Michael Sussmann began with prosecutors saying he hoped to create an “October surprise” in the race’s final weeks.
Mr Sussmann, who is the first defendant to go on trial in an investigation into the FBI’s original probe to find if Donald Trump was conspiring with Russia, pleaded not guilty.
Report says that the charges arise from a meeting between Mr Sussmann, a cyber-security lawyer, and an FBI agent in 2016.
