  • Durham launched an inquiry into the FBI’s examination of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election in May 2019.
  • A federal jury on Tuesday acquitted former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann on charges of lying to the FBI.
  • How the inquiry will end is still somewhat unknown.

Special counsel John Durham on Tuesday lost the first of a handful of legal battles in his years-long probe into the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. 

Durham’s inquiry has touched on some of the most controversial aspects of the campaigns of former President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton. He has kept a low profile throughout his investigation, and court documents provide few clues about the investigation’s path forward.
