Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, has slammed Hillary Clinton’s attorney for seeking to “corrupt a presidential election.”
Musk publicly criticized Michael Sussmann, an attorney, and Perkins Coie, a law firm, both of which were involved in the unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.
The Russia Hoax has widely disseminated thanks in large part to Perkins Coie and Susmann.
Perkins Coie and Susmann must “make amends,” according to Musk, who stated as much in a tweet.
He was replying to a comment made by the filmmaker Amanda Milius, who said: “There’s a lot more to full transparency just re Russiagate than getting rid of Baker but it’s a big step.”
Watch the videos and you’ll see why Kash isn’t tweeting about it.
“If Perkins Coie is @elonmusk Twitter’s outside counsel this isn’t remotely enough.”
Musk retorted, saying: “Twitter isn’t using Perkins Coie.
“No company should use them until they make amends for Sussman’s attempt to corrupt a Presidential election.”

Breitbart reports that “Sussmann, who was then also at Perkins Coie, gave the FBI data that purported to show a link between Trump and Russia via Alfa Bank.”
“The link was false.”
Sussmann was put on trial earlier this year for fabricating information and lying to the FBI when he gave it to agents.
According to a CNBC article on May 31:
“In closing arguments Friday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Algor told jurors that Sussmann ‘used his privilege as a high-powered Washington lawyer, as a former DOJ prosecutor, and as a friend … to bypass normal channels and to expedite a meeting with the FBI’s [now former] general counsel,’ James Baker.”
“Sussmann, a cybersecurity lawyer, provided Baker with obscure internet data indicating a possible communications channel between computer servers associated with the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, Russia’s largest commercial financial institution.”
“The FBI later determined Sussmann’s concerns were unfounded.”
