Former U.S. attorney Brett Tolman told “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Tuesday politics has “crept into” the judiciary system after a jury found former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann not guilty of making a false statement to the FBI in 2016. BRETT TOLMAN: There is not a single district court in this country other than Washington, D.C., where this would have happened. You have a 95% conviction rate across this country except in Washington, D.C. So when you highlight that there are two-tier justice systems in this country, especially when you see Washington, D.C., take care of its own. It’s offensive, and we should be upset by it.TURLEY ON SUSSMANN VERDICT: DURHAM NEEDS TO RELEASE ‘MOUNTAIN OF EVIDENCE’ LIMITED BY TRIAL…Fifteen years ago, it didn’t matter who appointed you as a judge. But we have seen politics now in the Department of Justice and the FBI, and it’s crept into the judiciary.
