After a two-week trial, and more than a day of deliberations, the jury found that William Barr-appointed Special Counsel John Durham did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Sussmann’s statement was a lie when he brought two thumb drives and a white paper alleging a Trump-Russia connection.

Trump, who has long claimed the Russia probe was part of a politically motivated “deep state” attempt to undermine his first presidential campaign, took to his social media platform to express his outrage about the verdict.

A screengrab of his statement was shared on Twitter by the right-wing account RSB Network.

As expected, people had a lot to say about Trump’s complaint:
