Washington (CNN)Prosecutors working for special counsel John Durham rested their case Wednesday against Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann after seven days of testimony that relitigated some of the most controversial moments of the 2016 presidential race.
Sussmann has pleaded not guilty to one count of lying to the FBI during a September 2016 meeting, where he passed along a tip about a potential communications backchannel between Donald Trump and a Kremlin-linked bank. He isn't accused of inventing the tip, which the FBI later dismissed, but he was charged with lying about whether he brought the tip on Clinton's behalf.
Sixteen witnesses testified as part of Durham's seven-day case. Sussmann's lawyers began their case Wednesday afternoon, and they haven't ruled out that Sussmann might testify in his own defense. If Sussmann does take the stand, it will happen Thursday, his lawyer said.
