Robby Mook, a former campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, testified Friday that Clinton approved the dissemination of a false link between President Donald Trump and Russia’s Alfa Bank.
Clinton personally signed off on the alleged information that there were secret communications between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank.

Mook’s testimony was part of the ongoing litigation against Michael Sussman, a former Clinton campaign attorney. Conservative Brief reported that Sussman has been charged with one count of lying to FBI general counsel James Baker, during a meeting in September of 2016. Sussman requested this meeting with Baker to present information that there were Russian ties to the Trump Organization. Sussman told Baker he wasn’t there on behalf of a client, but he was indeed working for the Clinton campaign at that time.
“All I remember is that she agreed with the decision,” Mook testified.
Fox News reported that Mook mentioned campaign officials were unsure of the legitimacy of the data they had received and wanted to give it to a reporter who could research to see if the information was “accurate or “substantive”.
The following tweet from October 31, 2016, was moved to be admitted as evidence:
In the tweet, Clinton says, “This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking the mystery of Trump’s ties to Russia.”
The tweet was almost excluded from evidence and thrown out as hearsay, by U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper last month.
Baker testified on Thursday that the FBI found that “there was nothing there” in regards to their investigation into the Trump/Russia collusion.
Fox News reported back in April that Special Counsel John Durham wrote:
“For example, while the FBI did not reach an ultimate conclusion regarding the data’s accuracy or whether it might have been in whole or in part genuine, spoofed, altered, or fabricated, Agency 2 concluded in early 2017 that the Russian Bank 1 data and Russian Phone Provider 1 data was not ‘technically plausible’, ‘did not withstand technical scrutiny’, ‘contained gaps’, ‘conflicted with [itself]’, and was ‘user created and not machine/tool generated’.”
Fox also added that:
Durham also alleges that Sussman in February 2017 provided an “updated set of allegations,” including the Alfa Bank claims, and additional allegations related to Trump to a second U.S. government agency, which Fox News has confirmed was the CIA.

President Trump filed a federal lawsuit against the Clinton campaign in March of 2022. The $24 million suit states in the introduction:
“In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot – one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation’s democracy. Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty.”
