Washington (AP) — A prominent cybersecurity lawyer has been charged with a special counsel’s investigation into a US government investigation into Russia’s election interference.
The lawyer has been accused of making false statements to the FBI. An indictment was filed Thursday against Michael Sussman of Perkins Koy LLP.
This is the second indictment filed by special counsel John Durham in a two-and-a-half-year job.
Both cases filed by Durham are at the heart of Robert Mueller’s previous investigation that Russia interfered extensively on behalf of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Trump campaign welcomed its assistance. It does not overturn the discovery.
