Trump’s accusations of defamation, according to Clinton’s attorney

Donald Trump said the revelations by Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager that she herself agreed to share unproven information linking him to a Russian bank were “one of the biggest political scandals in history.”

The former president made the comments after Robby Mook testified in defense of former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann, who is accused of lying to the FBI and is on trial as part of a three-year investigation into Trump-Russia relations.

Mook testified Friday that shortly before the 2016 election, Clinton “agreed” to share with a reporter since-debunked claims about a secret backhaul channel between a Trump Organization server and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

“This is one of the biggest political scandals in history,” Trump told Fox News on Saturday morning. “For three years I’ve had to fight them off and fight off these corrupt people and you’ll never fully get your reputation back.”

“How do I get my reputation back?” Trump reportedly asked.

He then beat up his rival, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Bill Barr, his own former Attorney General.

“And if we had real leadership, instead of people like Mitch McConnell, they would do something about it. And guys like Bill Barr. You would have done something about it.”

Sussmann is accused of falsely denying working for Clinton’s campaign when he provided the FBI with evidence allegedly linking Trump to the bank.

The Feds then launched an investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Russia to influence the election.

That investigation lasted up to a month and a half, former FBI general counsel James Baker testified Thursday.

“We have concluded that there is no substance,” Baker told the court. “We couldn’t confirm that. We could not confirm that there was a clandestine communication channel.”
