Former President Donald Trump, his son Don Jr., and former aides are attacking the American judicial system after a jury declared that former Hillary Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann was innocent of accusations by special counsel John Durham.
Durham has focused on Sussmann as part of an investigation into special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump's purported links to Russia. At the time of Durham's appointment, the former president promoted him as someone who would prove the Mueller probe was a fraud.
Taking to Twitter to attack the jurors, the eldest Trump son claimed that any jury in Washington, D.C. would be all-in for the Clintons. He went on to claim that liberals accused of crimes would all get off, referring to Hunter Biden who has never been arrested or accused of a crime by any judicial entity. Paul Pelosi was charged with a DUI while driving through wine country in northern California.
\u201cI'm shocked the DC Clinton donor jury let Clinton's lawyer off... HAHAHA just kidding, absolutely no one is shocked. Hunter Biden off next then Paul Pelosi etc etc. We all know how this goes by now... Only people not tied to the establishment DC swamp ever face accountability.\u201d— Donald Trump Jr. (@Donald Trump Jr.) 1654013596
Many legal analysts noted that they didn't believe that Durham would win the case.
Don Jr.'s rants drew swift mockery from those online observing his fury.

\u201cYou're going to prison Junior. Lay off the coke. You're embarrassing yourself.\u201d— Donna Schultz (@Donna Schultz) 1654017225
\u201cYou might want to give a tad more attention to your own future jury.\u201d— Lorene Soos (@Lorene Soos) 1654016854
\u201cI know, it must have been so hard for your family when your father was jailed for encouraging an insurrection, and then when your sister and her husband were held accountable for all their business dealings.\u201d— Elizabeth West (@Elizabeth West) 1654017647
\u201cGuy whose family ripped of a Veteran fundraiser so blatantly that they had to take a court-ordered class on how "not to steal from charity"(but no jail time) wants to talk about a disparity in justice.\u201d— Cyndi Borowski\ud83d\udc99\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf2 (@Cyndi Borowski\ud83d\udc99\ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf2) 1654015680
\u201cFrom the guy who was found guilty of ripping off his own children's charity and punished by going to "don't cheat children's charities" school with his siblings, none of whom are allowed to do charity again. Not that they're charitable, hence ripping off their own charity.\u201d— Rabid Badger \ud83e\udda1 (@Rabid Badger \ud83e\udda1) 1654017240
\u201cJunior here stole money from a kids' cancer charity and did no prison time. But do tell me again how privileged Paul Pelosi is.\u201d— Robert Scott (@Robert Scott) 1654016337
\u201cWe have Donald the father sharing today on social media that the Georgia election for Governor where his candidate last was "stolen" and now we have Don Jr lying that the jury was rigged in Michael Sussman case. This family is a cancer on our nation (except for Mary!)\u201d— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@(((DeanObeidallah)))) 1654017370

\u201cOh dear, oh dear @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump @IvankaTrump daddy sure is upset that the world knows he's corrupt. He can't save his reputation, a reputation he earned through his words and deeds. The whole world knows who he is and who he's raised you to be and it's NOT good.\u201d— Cheryl (@Cheryl) 1654018164
\u201cHey @DonaldJTrumpJr, how's that #Durham trial going?\n\nWhat? \n\nHe lost his one and only case.. \n\nin a 2 hr. deliberation?\n\n#TrumpsEatShit\n\n@EricTrump @LaraLeaTrump @IvankaTrump \n@barrontrump2021 #TheForgottenTrumps\n@GOP @DevinCow @kevinomccarthy #VladPutin #China #NorthKorea\u201d— MyBig(Huge)Tuba (@MyBig(Huge)Tuba) 1654019383
\u201c@DonaldJTrumpJr So you doubt the jury process unless your side wins?\u201d— Donald Trump Jr. (@Donald Trump Jr.) 1654013596
\u201cThen why haven't you been charged with treason yet?\ud83e\udd37\ud83c\udffe\u200d\u2642\ufe0f\u201d— James Harrington (@James Harrington) 1654017433
\u201cJust to be clear, the people Junior is obsessed with here are an acquitted lawyer & 2 private citizens whose accused actions have zero to do with the government. Now do the insurrection.\n\nBTW, at most, Hunter Biden may be at risk of tax evasion - which should terrify ALL Trumps.\u201d— Robert Elisberg (@Robert Elisberg) 1654019920
