Trump is furious.

On Tuesday (May 31), following the jury acquitting former lawyer of the Hillary Clinton campaign Michael Sussman, former President Donald Trump lashed out at the legal system.

Sussman has been investigated by special counsel John Durham concerning the origins of the bureau’s probe into Trump’s alleged connection with the Russian financial institution, Alfa Bank.

Posting on Truth Social, Trump released a statement expressing criticism of the legal system: “Our Legal System is CORRUPT, our Judges (and Justices!) are highly partisan, compromised or just plain scared, our Borders are OPEN, our Elections are Rigged, Inflation is RAMPANT, gas prices and food costs are “through the roof,” our Military “Leadership” is Woke, our Country is going to HELL, and Michael Sussmann is not guilty.”

Trump and his allies have long believed Sussman and others in federal law enforcement and intelligence communities were part of a politically motivated plot to undermine Trump’s first presidential campaign.

Durham also released a statement expressing disappointment in the verdict: “While we are disappointed in the outcome, we respect the jury’s decision and thank them for their service. I also want to recognize and thank the investigators and the prosecution team for their dedicated efforts in seeking truth and justice in this case.”
