Clinton lawyer's indictment reveals 'bag of tricks' | TheHill

The indictment seems to have revealed quite a bit about how scandals are manufactured and manipulated in Washington.
The 26-page indictment of former cybersecurity attorney and Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham ClintonAttorney charged in Durham investigation pleads not guilty Attorney indicted on charge of lying to FBI as part of Durham investigation Durham seeking indictment of lawyer with ties to Democrats: reports MORE campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann by special counsel John DurhamJohn DurhamAttorney charged in Durham investigation pleads not guilty Attorney indicted on charge of lying to FBI as part of Durham investigation Durham seeking indictment of lawyer with ties to Democrats: reports MORE is as detailed as it is damning on the alleged effort to push a false Russia collusion claim before the 2016 presidential campaign.

With Clinton, the indictment and prior disclosures suggest that Clinton campaign lawyers at the law firm of Perkins Coie helped organize an effort to spread Russia collusion stories and trigger an investigation.
