Jury selection begins in Sussmann’s trial Monday, opening arguments Tuesday.
It’s the first court trial and second indictment in Durham’s three-year probe.
Durham alleges that Sussmann misrepresented himself to the FBI when providing purported ‘evidence’ tying Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign to Russia.
Sussmann allegedly told a federal agent he was not working on behalf of any client when he was working for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
