It comes as no surprise that Hillary approved the release about the fake news Trump and Alpha Bank. What does surprise me and probably you also, is that her campaign manager, Robbie Mook testified that Hillary approved giving the story to the press.
His testimony comes during the trial of Michael Sussman, who is accused of lying to the FBI, telling them that he was not representing any clients. In fact, he was representing the Hillary campaign and Rodney Jofrte and his technology firm. Joffre is also linked to the spying on Trump as a candidate and during his presidency as well.

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager Robby Mook on Friday testified that Hillary personally approved of the dissemination of the bogus Trump-Russia Alfa Bank accusations to the media.
“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” Mook said in court on Friday.
“I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter,” Mook testified.
When asked how Hillary Clinton responded, Mook said: “She agreed.”

Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified Friday that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton approved the dissemination of materials alleging a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media, despite campaign officials not being “totally confident” in the legitimacy of the data.
During cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFillippis Friday, Mook was asked about the campaign’s understanding of the Alfa Bank allegations against Trump and whether they planned to release the data to the media.
Mook said he was first briefed about the Alfa Bank issue by campaign general counsel Marc Elias, who at the time was a partner at lawfirm Perkins Coie.
Mook testified that he was told that the data had come from “people that had expertise in this sort of matter.”
Mook said the campaign was not totally confident in the legitimacy of the data, but had hoped to give the information to a reporter who could further “run it down” to determine if it was “accurate” or “substantive.”
He also said he discussed whether to give the information to a reporter with senior campaign officials, including campaign chairman John Podesta, senior policy advisor, now White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, and communications director Jennifer Palmieri.
